New Favorite Song Lyric

When it comes to the best musical groups, the choice for #1 is clear, the Beatles. For me, two and three are a tie – the Eagles (and their related singles albums) and Chicago. Never been a Rolling Stones fan. Heavy Metal can be an interesting diversion in very small doses. I can even deal with country-rock. And I like classical and jazz. Just shoot me rather than make me listen to techno-pop, rap, hip-hop, hard-core country, or a-tonal classical music

Favorite song has to be “Let It Be”, followed by Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Waters”. I’ve always been a sucker for ballads when they point the way out of the dark side of the Force.

Just discovered my new favorite lyric in a Bette Midler song. It follows.

For all I’ve been blessed with in this life, there was an emptiness in me. I was in prison by the power of old. With one kind touch you set me free.

[chorus] Let the world stop turning. Let the Sun stop burning. Let them tell me love is not worth going through. If it all falls apart, I will know deep in my heart, the only dream that mattered had come true. In this life, I was loved by you.

For every mountain I climbed, for every raging river that I crossed, you were the treasure I longed to find. Without your love I would be lost.


I know that I won’t live forever, but forever I’ll be loving you.
