What with the A-Z challenge coming up and three other blog fests going on, it is no wonder I forgot about this one. Thanks to Nancy Williams for reminding me. I’ve never done two blogs in one day, but, hey, I promised I’d do this and a promise is a promise.
The Sad song blogfest is hosted by L. Diane Wolfe and you can find a list of all who are participating on her blog. I was asked to list songs that inspire me, move me to tears or break my heart. Some of the participants have listed up to ten songs. Since I am doing this late in the day, I will do four, even though there are hundreds of songs that touch my heart and my soul.
One that has always brought tears to my eyes is “Grandfather’s Clock” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akFrzn8SVGc
My father always sang that song, and I can still hear him. I liked his version better than this one. (smile)
Another song that never fails to touch me is “The Rose” sung here by Bette Midler. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oR6okRuOLc8
When my very talented children and I get together to jam, these are two songs we never fail to include.
My all time favorite hymn is “How Great Thou Art.” Sung here by Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLLMzr3PFgk
And to finish the list, “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9nPf7w7pDI
