12 Most Romantic Songs

At The Write Tribe, we're sharing 12 Most .... So I've decided to share what I think are the 12 Most Romantic songs.

At least these are the songs for today as no doubt on another day a few more would surface and a few get dropped off.

So here they are (in no particular order):

1. Spanish Eyes by Engelbert Humperdink always tops my list. I've loved this song since I was 10 years old. Somehow I think I have a karmic connection with this song or it triggers some karmic connection.

2. Strangers In The Night is next. How can you not love this song and the gorgeous voice of Frank Sinatra. This song always reminds me of my first senior school dance.

3. A Time For Us  (theme from Romeo and Juliet). This is such a beautiful song and R&J was a beautiful movie albeit sad. This is a song of hope for unrequited love. My friend and I saw this movie many times at the Saturday Matinee show. Leonard Whiting was heavenly respite after a boring university accounts class. But back to the song .. this one gives me the feeling that somewhere in the Universe is our special soulmate, that other half of our soul and that there will be a time for us.

4, Unforgettable by Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole. Such a lovely ode to love.

5. Walk With Me by The Seekers is another song I've loved since I was a little girl. And Judith Durham has such a lovely voice. The Seekers sang some beautiful songs but Walk With Me is my favourite. Perhaps along with it's beautiful lyrics, it's also the melody that entices.

6. La Vie En Rose is the ultimate love song. Originally sung by Edith Piaf, but I love Celine Dion's version. And I like the French version better than the English one. The words of the song are so romantic particularly the last verse.

7. Evergreen  epitomises what love should be like - a soul connection, ageless and evergreen. This is such a soulful song and Barbara Streisand nailed it with her beautiful rendition.

8. Andrea Bocelli's Besame Mucho always sends shivers up my spine. But I can never make up my mind whether I like the Spanish version better or Dean Martin's English version. So will have to share both. Again, beautiful words and melody in this song.

9. Annie's Song - I just love the words of John Denver's song and  I love how the words connect love to nature. So much imagery in this song - I always get the feeling of refreshing love.

10. Dan Fogleberg Longer Than gives me a feeling of eternal love. Something beyond this world.

11.  It is you I have loved from Shrek - some years ago at work we were asked what our wedding song was or if we didn't have one, which one we would choose. I chose "It is you I have loved". This is such a sweet song and the perfect love song. This is what I would want to feel when love comes along. Sharing Becky Taylor's version as I like her version the best.

12. The Shadow Of Your Smile. This song reminds me of someone who was close to my heart many many moons ago. Unfortunately he died so young but I remember the shadow of his smile. Sharing Perry Como's version as I think he captured the mood of the song really well.

Hope you enjoyed my selection of songs. Do share your favourite romantic songs.

Have a love filled day.

Warm Regards

Five Minute Friday - Tell

So many times we send a prayer up to Heaven and then wait anxiously for the answers to come. And then as time drifts on by and the answer doesn't seem to come we decide that there isn't really anyone up there looking out for us.

But the more I thought of that, the more I felt that it isn't really that the answers don't come it's more that we stop believing that an answer will come. Hence when it does, we just don't see it.

I've been blogging for 3 years now and have truly enjoyed all the challenges and prompts that I've taken part in. But always felt something missing. And then a few days ago it occurred to me that what I was missing was a spiritual prompt. Something that allowed me to make that connection with Spirit, to be involved in a like minded group where the interaction would lift me up.

Fiction doesn't do it for me. Now and then that's a fun write and read, but it just does not resonate with me. The real life stories of faith and love and hope are the stories I find inspirational and uplifting.

And so many weeks ago I sent a prayer up to Heaven. Told the Lord to find me a spiritual blogging group. Thanks Corinne (Everyday Gyaan) for leading me to the Five Minute Friday prompt.  A place where I hope I can tell the thoughts in my mind that are led from my soul.  Looking forward to linking up there.

Tell the Lord what you need, let it go and then He will find a way to bring it to you. Sometimes that occurs by chance, sometimes in an unexpected way, sometimes when you've forgotten you've asked. But the answers do come.

In the words of a Beatles song - There will be an answer, Let it be.

This was written in 5 minutes.

Warm Regards

Gratitude List #40

Linking to Alphabet Salad's Gratitude Linkup #40

Be grateful for random acts of kindness

I meant to post this yesterday but got side tracked into other things and then had to call it a day as it got close to midnight. But will post my gratitude list for yesterday as well.

So many things to be grateful for yesterday revolving around buses:
  • A cheery bus driver with a smiling face and a happy greeting (and the driver today was sullen and impatient - I almost fell down he started the bus so quickly)
  • The bus arriving on time yesterday morning (the bus was 15 mins late today)
  • A random act of kindness - the bus driver waited for me to catch the bus home otherwise I would've had to wait another 1/2 hour at least in the dark. Not something I like doing. 

Some other things to be grateful for yesterday:
  • A very warm jacket on a very cold day
  • Lots of support from fellow bloggers
  • Blogspot forum where we can post questions 
  • Very grateful for the replies I got on my posted question 

And some things to be grateful for today:
  • Glad it wasn't raining when the fire alarm went off at work 
  • Glad my new water boiler got installed today - no more worrying if the water will suddenly turn cold in the middle of a shower
  • Glad the plumber fixed my shower as well though it wasn't part of the deal.

I am truly grateful for random acts of kindness.

Warm Regards
