OK, so this week, our 'Marching Orders' are to list "Beautiful Songs." For me, a bit of a challenge. When I saw the 'theme,' I knew instantly of just one song. So, we'll see how this shakes out below. But, I've got some work to do. Ha...
Our "Hostess with the Mostess" is Jen, over at My Skewed View with Mix Tape #24... Her Co-Host, as usual, is Kristi, over at Finding Ninee... I hope you will click on their Links and check out all the other participants and their 'Beautiful Songs' as well.
So... I'll save my fave for last. But, I think I've put together a bit of a different, but, I hope, decent List for you. Check it out and I hope you enjoy, as usual.
#1: The first time I heard this tune, I truly liked its beauty and the way Carrie sung it. Carrie Underwood with Home Sweet Home. Enjoy... (source)
#2: I have always thought this next tune was a very beautiful tune, period. The Allman Brothers with Melissa. Enjoy... (source)
#3: This next tune is a personal favorite of my Little Bride. She loves it and I just had to include it. Bryan Adams with Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman. Enjoy... (source)
#4: Such a beautiful voice from Adele. And I think this is a beautiful song. Please enjoy her singing Skyfall... (source)
#5: OK, gonna change it up a bit here for the next two. Back, for a moment, to my Smooth Jazz likings. First up, a tune that I really like (or love) from Art of Noise titled Love. Please give this one a chance. Enjoy... (source)
#6: Next, another tune from my Smooth Jazz collection. From Moby, Sunspot. Enjoy... (source)
OK... Several years ago, Donna and I sat down at the house to watch a movie we had rented. 50 First Dates with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. A decent movie, I suppose. But in the final 5 minutes, a song played that literally blew me away. I had not heard this particular version before. That night, I thought to myself that, for me, this had to be the most Beautiful Song I had ever heard.
#7: And so, here is my favorite. Singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole. I hope you enjoy... (source)
And that's it. I hope you enjoyed. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope to see ya back on Happy Friday. Til then...
Be safe, be smart, and always show your Smile... It's Mix Tape Tuesday.
