My Cup Runneth Over

My Cup Runneth Over

by Ray Conniff and The Singers

Sadly I cannot always find songs I want to post/versions but this a lovely one. Chosen because of the words and thinking of Mum and Dad I remember what they meant to each other and me being asked to play this to Mum on their anniversary after he had had to go to work. Its all in the lyrics.

Smile

Smile

by Nat King Cole

I guess Chaplin is featured as I understand that he is credited with writing the song? Must get back into posting and looking at songs posted. Been out of it(ill)for a while. Chosen I suppose as it seems appropriate to the present time of year and events.

I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free

I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free

by Billy Taylor

Over the years there have been many versions of this, all powerful when lyrics are sung. Even many versions have been released by the artist featured here who I believe composed it. This is the nearest to the one I wanted as I am unable to link to a streaming site for now...

Look Homeward Angel

Look Homeward Angel

by Johnny Ray

Its everything...from the delivery from Johnny to the rich orchestration(with horns)going on behind his voice, the imploring that his love is safe and that she is waiting for him upon on his return and the urgency of his wishes.

Brahms' Lullaby

Brahms' Lullaby

I'd forgotten about this simple but beautiful piece of music. So innocent, the feeling that nothing can hurt you and someone is watching over you keeping you safe. Offering comfort. Which I can miss being alone... So many versions to choose from...
