My song du jour

22 Dec

I love this song!  Everytime I hear it, it brings a tear to my eye (actually more than a tear.  I kind of feel I can solve the water shortage problem) .  Sometimes there are songs that do that to you.  This one ticks all the tear boxes for me.  By the time the song finishes, I’m a blubbering wreck.

If you can, buy the song from iTunes, as I think all the song proceeds go to charities helping the soldiers.  It’s such a small thing to pay for them defending world peace.  Plus you get a great song to listen to.  It’s called Wherever You Are and it’s sung by a group called Military Wives.  The Military Wives is a choir formed by Gareth Malone.  The women in the choir are wives and girlfriends of the soldiers serving.  I first saw them sing the song live on BBC1’s The One Show.  And I fell in love!

I really hope they make it to Christmas Number One!

Rainy Thursday

15 Dec

As I look out the window and see the raindrops fall down, I am reminded of a Sesame Street song that I loved listening to.  I am thankful to that person who posted this on Youtube!

Monday mania

28 Nov

One of these days I will wake up on a Monday morning and not feel the way I do about Mondays.  I believe that.

One day!

Waiting for Wednesday

17 Aug

This is one of my favourite Lisa Loeb songs.  It’s such a cheerful tune and yet, when you read the lyrics, there’s a decidedly sad tone.  The girl really is waiting for Wednesday because she thinks she’s ready to break up with the boy she’s with.  She loves him but he seems to bring her down…a lot.  It’s a cliché but love isn’t enough.  Sometimes the best thing to do is to step away and put oneself first.

Are you waiting for a certain Wednesday to say goodbye to something in your life?

Waiting for Wednesday, my stomach doesn’t hurt enough
Pain always is the sign
Waiting for Wednesday, no proof of mine exists
So l don’t have to take it back
Don’t want to show you good-bye, show you good-bye, show you goodbye
Show you good-bye

But you’re waiting for Wednesday, waiting for Wednesday
Waiting for Wednesday, I pray you’ll put me on the spot
I do believe you, that you’ll love me that you’ll leave me
Don’t want to show you good-bye, show you good-bye

What will I do when you come near to me?
You’ll put me on the spot
You’ve been doing this a long, long time,
Not that you’re better than me, but that you do it a lot
Now I’m waiting for Wednesday, waiting for Wednesday
Waiting for Wednesday, I’m waiting for Wednesday.
I’m gonna show you good-bye, show you good-bye, show you good-bye
Show you good-bye
Now I’m waiting for Wednesday
You’re back from out of town, the West is dry, your mind is clear
And I don’t want to be here, I don’t want to be here
I don’t want to be here
To show you good-bye

And I’m waiting for Wednesday, waiting for Wednesday
I’m waiting for Wednesday, to show you good-bye
I don’t want to be here, to show you good-bye
Waiting for Wednesday, I don’t want to be here.
Waiting for Wednesday, to show you good-bye, to show you good-bye

Easter Song

24 Apr

This is a song that I loved singing.  I can’t wait till I can once again hear the Fairview Park United Methodist Church Chancel Choir sing this song.  This is one of my choir favourites, and I always smiled when singing this song because it, for me, epitomised what Easter was.

Open Mic: Nica del Rosario

17 Mar

She’s a friend of a friend and I got the link off Twitter.  I very rarely post covers on the blog, but when I heard this girl sing, I felt that more people should hear her “awesome” voice (that’s a quote from her friend, my friend Ace :)).

Here’s the link and have a listen folks!
