    For me it is Debbie Reynolds - Tammy from 1957, it just makes my heart melt :)

    I hear the cottonwoods whisp'rin' above
    Tammy! Tammy! Tammy's in love!
    The ole hootie owl hootie-hoo's to the dove
    Tammy! Tammy! Tammy's in love!
    Does my darling feel what I feel
    When he comes near?
    My heart beats so joyfully
    You'd think that he could hear!
    Wish I knew if he knew what I'm dreaming of!
    Tammy! Tammy! Tammy's in love!

    J'veux qu'on baise sur ma tombe by Saez:

    "j'aurais aime t'aimer
    comme on aime le soleil
    te dire que le monde est beau
    que c'est beau d'aimer
    j'aurais aimer t'ecrire
    le plus beau des poemes
    et construire un empire
    juste pour ton sourire
    devenir le soleil
    pour secher tes sanglots
    et faire battre le ciel
    pour un futur plus beau
    mais c'est plus fort que moi
    tu vois je n'y peux rien
    ce monde n'est pas pour moi
    ce monde n'est pas le mien"

    I wrote a song called "Shit" when I was venting a few months ago...

    It's rather good. :) Entirely improvised...
     
  4. Well... I have at least 10 favourite and most beautiful songs...
    Today I would choose Led Zeppelin - Going to California. It reminds me of summer and always makes me smile. :)

    One of my all time favorites..ALWAYS makes me feel better when I hear it..:)


    Ripple/Grateful Dead

    If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
    And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
    Would you hear my voice come through the music
    Would you hold it near as it were your own?
    It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
    Perhaps they're better left unsung
    I don't know, don't really care
    Let there be songs to fill the air

    Ripple in still water
    When there is no pebble tossed
    Nor wind to blow
    Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
    If your cup is full may it be again
    Let it be known there is a fountain
    That was not made by the hands of man

    There is a road, no simple highway
    Between the dawn and the dark of night
    And if you go no one may follow
    That path is made for your steps alone

    You who choose to lead must follow
    But if you fall you fall alone
    If you should stand then who's to guide you?
    If I knew the way I would take you home

    I'd probably have to say the entire Greendale album by neil young... well, it's a musical novel, so I can't just pick a chapter... the movie is quite interesting and weird as hell, as usual a'la Bernard Shakey, and the live acoustic solo concert recorded at Vicar Street in Dublin, Ireland is probably my favorite version. I'm waiting to buy the book... covers politics, media, technology, morals, values, religions, accepting, corporations, crime, life in a small town and pretty much all the controversials in life itself.

    :D I love the two that said Patience. That's been my favorite song since I was little. My dad sang it to me to put me to sleep.



    I'd say Smack my bitch up and Patience.

    I was going to say either 'Fuck off' by Kid Rock, 'Superman' the uncensored version by eminem, or 'Big Balls' by ACDC......

    But then I had a change of heart.

    La Vie en Rose by Edith Piaf is my favourite for songs with lyrics.
    .
    For instrumentals, I really like Pachelbel's Canon.

    If I was to list all the songs I find beautiful, I'd have a huge list too.

    • When in the springtime of the year •
    • When the trees are crowned with leaves •
    • When the ash and oak, and the birch and yew •
    • Are dressed in ribbons fair •


    • When owls call the breathless moon •
    • In the blue veil of the night •
    • The shadows of the trees appear •
    • Amidst the lantern light •


    • We've been rambling all the night •
    • And some time of this day •
    • Now returning back again •
    • We bring a garland gay •


    • Who will go down to those shady groves •
    • And summon the shadows there •
    • And tie a ribbon on those sheltering arms •
    • In the springtime of the year •


    • The songs of birds seem to fill the wood •
    • That when the fiddler plays •
    • All their voices can be heard •
    • Long past their woodland days •


    • We've been rambling all the night •
    • And some time of this day •
    • Now returning back again •
    • We bring a garland gay •


    • And so they linked their hands and danced •
    • Round in circles and in rows •
    • And so the journey of the night descends •
    • When all the shades are gone •


    "A garland gay we bring you here •
    • And at your door we stand •
    • It is a sprout well budded out •
    • The work of Our Lord's hand" •


    • We've been rambling all the night •
    • And some time of this day •
    • Now returning back again •
    • We bring a garland gay •


    • We've been rambling all the night •
    • And some time of this day •
    • Now returning back again •
    • We bring a garland gay •
