I have realised that some song lyrics never fail to make me cry, and I don't mean that my eyes fill with tears, I actually end up sobbing. The following have all affected me over the last week:
* In the living years by Mike and The Mechanics ( it makes me cry about my late father)
*Bring him home by Josh Groben (which reminds me that I haven't seen my son in the flesh for many years as he lives in Sydney)
*The movie in my mind by Eva Noblezada , from Miss Saigon, ( it makes me weep for all the girls and women used and abused during the war in Vietnam, as my daughter-in-law is Vietnamese)
And the mother of all songs to leave me in a pool of tears:
* Monsters by James Blunt ( it was written when his father was very ill but can be interpreted to mean all the fathers lost during the pandemic) It cracks me up every time.....
What songs bring out an emotional response in you?
After watching James Blunt's video on U-TUBE (TWICE) I needed a comforting bowl of soup with hot buttered toast.....
Thanks for popping in and stay safe everyone, wherever in the world you happen to be x
