Hi Val

So agree ....Alexander Burke deserved to win X-Factor and I think that she will do well. Fabulous song she has out and it will do well too!

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=eyLrsu9YWo4

Paul Young - Love of the Common People

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Rr3o3O...eature=related

Paul Young - Everything Must change.

I thought of Paul Young's songs today, as they are close to my heart, and they say a lot about what a person feels.

Uriah Heep - Circus

'I'm sorry my dears
But we only sat down
And laughed and laughed in sorrow
But it was you
That opened the door
And it's that we thank you for'

Loved this tune from this rock group years ago and it just soothes the soul. Lovely to listen to and relax by.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1nyPE...eature=related

Uriah Heep - Rain

Another nice song to listen too. Always liked this groups softer side

'Rain, rain, rain, in my tears
Measuring carefully my years
Shame, shame, shame, in my mind
See what you've done to my life'

I had never heard of this group before, but strangly enough I found the song very catchy, I liked it & there were nice horses in the video.

Hi Wendy - I love Waterloo a lot and it is a song that is very infectious indeed.

Love this artist such a lot, and sadly he not here anymore.

http://www.uulyrics.com/music/harry-...shooting-star/

Harry Chapin - Shooting Star

He was crazy of course
From the first she must have known it
But still she went on with him
And she never once had shown it
And she took him off the street
And she dried his tears of grieving
She listened to his visions
She believed in his believe-ins

Oh, he was the sun burning bright and brittle
And she was the moon shining back his light a little
He was a shooting star
She was softer and more slowly
He could not make things possible
But, she could make them holy

He was dancing to some music
No one else had ever heard
He'd speak in unknown languages
She would translate every word
And then when the world was laughing
At his castles in the sky
She'd hold him in her body
Till he once again could fly

Oh, he was the sun burning bright and brittle
And she was the moon shining back his light a little
He was a shooting star
She was softer and more slowly
He could not make things possible
But, she could make them holy

Well, she gave him a daughter
And she gave him a son
She was a mother, and a wife,
And a lover when the day was done
He was too far gone for giving love
What he offered in its stead
Was the knowledge she was the only thing
That was not in his head

He took off East one morning
Towards the rising sun's red glow
She knew he was going nowhere
But of course she let him go
And as she stood and watched him dwindle
Much too empty to be sad
He reappeared beside her saying,
"You're all I've ever had"

Oh, he was the sun burning bright and brittle
And she was the moon shining back his light a little
He was a shooting star
She was softer and more slowly
He could not make things possible
But, she could make them holy

Will make a point of not putting whole songs lyrics in each time, but this is a special special song to me.

Madonna - Frozen

Maybe it is the weather that makes me think of this one at the moment.

Best song Madonna ever did IMHO.

Hi Mick/Keith

Love Santana tunes, and they are such soulful music in their own special way.

A guitar build up to a chorus - love it anyday.

Enjoyed the videos a lot!

I heard this on the radio earlier and cannot get it out of my head. Thing is, I cannot bear it!
