Gordon Lightfoot – "Beautiful" (1972)
"At times I just don't know How you could be anything but beautiful I think that I was made for you And you were made for me"
The Beatles – "Blackbird" (1968)
"Blackbird singing in the dead of night Take these broken wings and learn to fly All your life You were only waiting for this moment to arise. Blackbird singing in the dead of night Take these sunken eyes and learn to see All your life You were only waiting for this moment to be free. Blackbird fly Blackbird fly Into the light of the dark black night."
Sean Connery & Janet Munro – "Pretty Irish Girl" from Disney's "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" (1959)
"Oh, she is my dear, my darlin' one Her eyes so sparklin', full of fun No other, no other Can match the likes of her" And, oh by the way, Sean is Scottish and Janet is English… details details… just sing & dance!
Loreena McKennitt – "All Souls Night" (1991)
"Somewhere in a hidden memory Images float before my eyes Of fragrant nights of straw and of bonfires And dancing till the next sunrise. … Standing on the bridge that crosses The river that goes out to the sea The wind is full of a thousand voices They pass by the bridge and me … I can see lights in the distance Trembling in the dark cloak of night Candles and lanterns are dancing, dancing A waltz on All Souls Night."
Israel "Iz" Kamakawiwoʻole – "Somewhere Over The Rainbow / What A Wonderful World" (1993)
"Somewhere over the rainbow Blue birds fly And the dreams that you dreamed of Dreams really do come true ooh oh Someday I'll wish upon a star Wake up where the clouds are far behind me Where trouble melts like lemon drops High above the chimney tops That's where you'll find me"
Paul Simon – "The Boy In The Bubble" (1986)
"This is the long distance call The way the camera follows us in slo-mo The way we look to us all The way we look to a distant constellation That's dying in a corner of the sky These are the days of miracle and wonder And don't cry baby, don't cry Don't cry" Dedicated to a certain lucky couple and their little girl. 😉
Marissa Nadler – "Gloomy Sunday" (2011)
