Thoughtful Thursday

Music and love.

Love and music.

While Lisa at Clusterfook loves the Rolling Stones, and iMom loves Pearl Jam, and Asthma Girl has even been backstage (sorta) at a ZZ Top concert . . . the Baroness?

She's a crooner kind of gal.

Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra? Their voices are balm to my soul.

And, with you-know-what just around the corner, my thoughts this week turn to music and love.

One of my favorite love songs is by Sir Francis O'BlueEyes. Listening to it always reminds me of making dinner in our old house, and simultaneously being slow-danced around the kitchen by the hubster. Pretty sweet.

And yes, for your information, when I laugh - it wrinkles my nose.

(And my eyes)

(Big time)

So as an early valentine to all my beautiful readers, who I'm sure look fabulous tonight and every night, may I present:

The Way You Look Tonight
(Jerome Kerns and Dorothy Fields)

Some day, when I'm awfully low,
When the world is cold,
I will feel a glow just thinking of you...
And the way you look tonight.

Yes you're lovely, with your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft,
There is nothing for me but to love you,
And the way you look tonight.

With each word your tenderness grows,
Tearing my fear apart...
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
It touches my foolish heart.

Lovely ... Never, ever change.
Keep that breathless charm.
Won't you please arrange it ?
'Cause I love you ... Just the way you look tonight.

Mm, Mm, Mm, Mm,
Just the way you look to-night.

My favourite song of all time is probably "Something Stupid" by Frank and Nancy Sinatra, probably because when I was a baby my mom used to play it for me all the time as it was one of her faves also. She had an old 45 of it around. To this day I love that song. I have really eclectic tastes in music but that one always stuck with me.

How delightful! FYI? Frank and I share a birthday. And my all time favorite song in the world? Dean-o singing "ain't that a kick in the head"!

I realize that flies in the face of my love for oom-pa music, but there we are!

I actually had a moment to be in a room by myself with no distractions and I completely enjoyed having Frank sing to me. Shhhhh, don't tell Eddie Vedder.

Thank you so much for the song, it made me smile!

You know, I've heard the song a million times but the lyrics somehow have a different feel when you read them. Oddly enough, now when I hear that song I'll probably think of you! ...babspeapod

Hi ~ My first visit here and I just had to tell you to listen to Michael Buble - he is only a baby (28 or something) but what a crooner! Anyways - I enjoyed my visit!

Countess VA: I LOVE that song!! I always thought it was so sweet having daughter & pop sing together. (Not like the Nat/Natalie Cole posthumous necrophilia)

Countess AG: It was a toss up between Frank and Dean singing "On the Street Where you Live" - "people stop and stare, it don't bother me, for there's no where else on earth that I would rather be". Pure gold.

Countess iMom: Your secret is safe with me.

Countess Babs: Kinda weird, but in the best of ways.

Countess MPM: Oh that Frank.

Countess Deb: Welcome, welcome, welcome!!

I am well aware of this Buble character you speak of - he hails from my area, and one would have to be living in a cave not to know who he is around here.

Agreed - his voice is quite lovely.
