Something Lovely

So I spent a lot of time this evening searching for the perfect song. See, I love music. I love love love musicians and those that can express themselves through lyrics, instruments and song. It is a creative outlet that I have NO talent for. I played saxophone for awhile, I dabbled in vocals, but, well, it's not my forte. So, those that can express themselves with voice and instrument blow my mind.

And after a long search for the perfect art related song I could not quite find what I was looking for. Then... I came back to this. It's not about art. It's just beautiful and inspiring. There are a few songs, delivered by a few performers that will make me cry every time. This is one of them. (oh by the way Jeff Buckley's version makes me bawl).

I love that song too...love it. And just this weekend I did Yoga to John Cale's version. I'm having a hard start of my day..and I think I needed to visit this song again.

Now look who's timely in fashion?

Peace & Love.

Good song. Not sure who it's by but the version from Shrek is a favorite in my house!

Love this song, and yes Jeff Buckley is mind blowingly amazing. Like he was between worlds while he was alive. Makes me shiver to hear any of his songs. I can only take so much Cohen sometimes - I feel like he could push me over the edge into a pool of sadness. It's a beautiful sadness, though, if that makes any sense...
