I would have to say that the song of the week for me is "I Want To Know what Love Is" by Foreigner

"In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again,
I can't stop now I've travelled so far
to change this lonely life,
I want to know what love is,
I want you to show me"

The song of my life is Angel By fellow Canadian Sarah Mclachlan

"You spend all your time waiting for that second chance,
for a break that would make it okay,
there's always some reason to feel not good enough
and it's hard at the end of the day
....let me empty, oh and weightless then maybe I'll find some peace tonight
In the arms of the angel
fly away from here
from this dark cold, hotel room
and the endlessness that you fear,
you are pulled from the reckage of your silent reverie,
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here"

A great question Chris!    

The beauty of poetry gives my soul wings to fly free within dreams

Silver, Blue, & Gold

From the Bad Company Album "Run With The Pack". Written By Paul Rodgers, 1976 Badco Music Inc.

...As for why, Well It's been a favourite for a long time and just now it's appropriate!


In the beginning, I believed every word that you said
Now that you're gone my world is in shreds
Oh, you loved me and left me
You took all the things that I needed so bad
I'm standing here wondering where is the love that I had?

Oh, give me silver, blue and gold
The colour of the sky I'm told
My ray-ay-ain-bow is overdue

In the beginning, yeah,
There was something of love that was mine,
Now that it's gone, whoa, I'm cryin'

Oh, the time that it takes for a love
To grow cold is a wonder to me
I'm walkin' around with my head
Hangin' down, tell me where is she?

Give me silver, blue and gold,
The colour of the sky I'm told,
MY rcry-ay-ain-bow is overdue.

Don't forsake me 'cause I love you.
Don't forsake me 'cause I love you.
Give me silver, blue and gold,
The colour of the sky I'm told.
My ray-ay-ain-bow is overdue.

Give me silver, blue and gold,
The colour of the sky I'm told.
My ray-ay-ain-bow is overdue.

Now, give me silver, blue and gold,
The colour of the sky I'm told. 1
My ray-ay-ain-bow is overdue, yeah

Oh, don't forsake me' cause I love you.
Don't forsake me' cause I love you,
Yeah.

Since it IS a new week, can I do another?(I'll take the silence as a "yes".)

ricki lee jones..."company"

"i'll remember you too clearly.
but i'll survive another day---
conversation, to share,
when there's no one there,
i'll imagine what you'd say..."

Hmmm . . . well, my song of the week for every week really would have to be Michael W. Smith's song "Friends" because without them life would be empty and incomplete.

Packing up the dreams God planted
In the fertile soil of you
Can't believe the hopes He's granted
Means a chapter in your life is through
But we'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long to live as friends

With the faith and love God's given
Springing from the hope we know
We will pray the joy you'll live in
Is the strength that now you show
But we'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keep us strong

To me, that says it all.

Ok, Ok...I now know the difference there...but it ain't my fault...if Mr. McGraw didn't always do that southern nasal twang, I wouldn't have been so confused. Anyhow, I like it better with 'sauce', being another term for money, cash, clams, lucre, payolla, deneiro, change, bills, spots, etc....

Well, I'd have to say my fav right now is
"Home for a Rest" by Spirit of the West. Probably because of my current facination with celtic music. This sond evolved from tradional much reels such as "Castle Kelly"
"The Glass of Beer" and "Swallow's Tail". Its a great modern dancing song any time I have heard it in a bar or pub the whole places just goes crazy with hands in the air dancing.. gets the blood flowing to be sure.

Home For a Rest
(Spirit of the West)

You'll have to excuse me, i'm not in my best;
I've been gone for a month, I've been drunk since I left.
These so called vacations will soon be my death.
I'm so sick from the drink I need home for a rest.

We arrived in December, and London was cold.
So we stayed in the bars on Charing Cross Road.
We never saw nothing, but brass taps and oak,
Kept a shine on the bar with the sleeves of our coats.

You'll have to excuse me, i'm not in my best;
I've been gone for a month, I've been drunk since I left.

These so called vacations will soon be my death.
I'm so sick from the drink I need home for a rest.
Take me home!

Euston Station the train journey north
In the buffet car, we lurched back and forth
Past old crooked dykes, through Yorkshire's green fields.
We were flung into dance, as the train jagged and reeled

You'll have to excuse me, i'm not in my best;
I've been gone for a month, I've been drunk since I left.
These so called vacations will soon be my death.
I'm so sick from the drink I need home for a rest.
Take me home!

By the light of the moon she'd drift through the streets
A rare old perfume so seductive and sweet
She'd tease us and flirt as the pubs all closed down,
and walk us all home and deny us a round.

You'll have to excuse me, i'm not in my best;
I've been gone for a month, I've been drunk since I left.
These so called vacations will soon be my death.
I'm so sick from the drink I need home for a rest.
Take me home!

The gas heater's empty, it's damp as a tomb,
The spirits we drank are now ghosts in the room.
I'm knackered again, come on sleep take me soon.
And, don't lift up my head 'til the twelve bells at noon.

You'll have to excuse me, i'm not in my best;
I've been gone for a month, I've been drunk since I left.
These so called vacations will soon be my death.
I'm so sick from the drink I need home for a rest.
Take me home!

Parker

Tough question, Chris. I'm a country fan so I love anything by Lonestar but particularly "Amazed". I think though my song of the week would have to be "The Good Things In Life"  by Aussies Adam Brand and Graeme Connors.

"I wish you every happiness
and pray you'll always have the best
of the good things in life."
I think it's a beautiful sentiment.

My song for week is Goodnight Moon by Shivaree. It's about darkness and fear and the light that the heavens bring for consolation. Interesting lyrics and great melody.

How can you save me?
When the dark comes right in and takes me,
from my front walk and into bed,
where it kisses my face and eats my head. Shivaree

Joni Mitchell and Foo Fighters? God, I love you guys...
Song of the week? This one tops my list (subject to change tomorrow):

Verdi Cries
Natalie Merchant
(from her 10,000 maniac days
spec. In my Tribe)

The man in 119 takes his tea alone/ Mornings we all rise to wireless Verdi cries/ I'm hearing opera through the door/ The souls of men and women, impassioned all/ Their voices climb and fall; battle trumpets call/ I fill the bath and climb inside, singing/ la la la la la la/ la la la la la la
He will not touch their pastry but every day they bring him more/ Gold from the breakfast tray, I steal them all away/ and then go and eat them on the shore/ la la la la la la/ la la la la la la
La la la la la la
I draw a jackal-headed woman in the sand/ sing of a lover's fate sealed by jealous hate/ then wash my hand in the sea/ With just three days more I'd have just about learned the entire score to Aida/
Holidays must end as you know/ All is memory taken home with me: the opera, the stolen tea, the sand drawing, the verging sea, all years ago.
la la la la la la...
la la la la la la...


~ Beth




Now I've been happy lately
Thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun

This weeks fav song...
"I'm Outta Love' by Anastacia

I'm outta love,
Set me free,
Let me out this misery....

Suits the mood of the heart this week LOL
Does that mean I am morbid this week????
