Songs that actually "Touch" ...... SOMETHING in you !
My emotions are usually my weakness, but "Self Control" is my "Protector" !

Sometimes a song can get to you ! Whether because of "Overall Life", a "Love", a "Moment" or …..just "Because" !

"Sometimes the very thing you're looking for
Is the one thing you can't see !"

I try and "See" everything in my Life ! 

"Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.

Earl Nightingale

It is a good remake, but I am old fashioned and have always been partial to the original by S & G. To me, the original just sounds better.

I may not be perfect, but at least I am not fake. With me, what you see is what you get.

Sometimes....that can "Wake" folks up....not to be confused with "WOKE" !

They are Two different things.

He looks like he has a tail between his eyes.  Still, my heart still melted.

My Way , as sung by Frank Sinatra.  At my age, as it did for him, it made me look back at the life I lived, and what I did and did not do.

"My Way"

And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
I traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Regrets, I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption
I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way
Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows and did it my way

[instrumental]

Yes, it was my way

Suzanne , as sung by its composer, Leonard Cohen.  Because the first time I heard it, it was at an outdoor chilly evening concert where Cohen sang it on stage in front of an audience of thousands who were absolutely silent, and the hair on the back of my neck stood up on end - because I have known, even at times lived with, the kind of women he was singing about.

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by

You can spend the night beside her
And you know that she's half crazy
But that's why you want to be there

And she feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China

And just when you mean to tell her
That you have no love to give her

Then she gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
That you've always been her lover


And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind

And you know that she will trust you
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind


And Jesus was a sailor
When he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching
From his lonely wooden tower

And when he knew for certain
Only drowning men could see him

He said "All men will be sailors then
Until the sea shall free them"

But he himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human

He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

And you want to travel with him
And you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you'll trust him
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind


Now Suzanne takes your hand
And she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters
And the sun pours down like honey
On Our Lady of the Harbour
And she shows you where to look
Among the garbage and the flowers

There are heroes in the seaweed
There are children in the morning

They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever

While Suzanne holds the mirror

And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind

And you know you can trust her
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind
