Distance memories of Lambrettas, Telecasters, playing and dancing in the old youth club and sleeping out under the stars
Going back Home
Yep memories indeed. I am listening to Queen - the best of. Bought recently and did not realise that it was a revamp of the last 'Best of' so I now have three, each with a couple of tracks different from the last.
I particularly like this one too Helen my father use to sing this to my mother while playing the piano, he also sang (La vie en rose) for our first dance at our wedding and I sang it at our son’s wedding, a tradition we very much hope will be carried on and on. This I always follow up by singing (My boomerang won’t come back by Charlie Drake,) the father of the groom speech is highly enjoyable too; this is where Alan really did get into his stride!
Could this beauty last forever I would ask for nothing more believe me let this night but live forever more
Got me going again listening to Moonlight Serenade. I am having to be careful what I play - just too many memories come flooding back. Music is so evocative. Even playing Elton John's Your song or Ronan Keating's When you say nothing at all sets me off. Hey ho! It is a new year must get a grip!
Thanks Nige, but today has been a very sad day for me as I said goodbye to one of my favourite musicians Glenn Frey, so I have chosen this beautiful song (it’s your world now) as a tribute. A quick search revealed that they have chosen the very same song.
The last verse I find extremely poignant
It's your world now, use well the time be part of something good, leave something good behind the curtain falls, I take my bow that's how it's meant to be, it's your world now it's your world now, it's your world now
