    Sorry
    , this one jumped out at me today. Its funny how old songs do that to you when you're in a mood.

    Epic-

    Can you feel it ,see it, hear it today?
    If you can't, then it doesn't matter anyway
    You will never understand it 'cause it happens too fast
    And it feels so good, it's like walking on glass
    It's so cool, it's so hip, it's alright
    It's so groovy, it's outta sight
    You can touch it, smell it, taste it so sweet
    But it makes no difference 'cause it knocks you off your feet
    You want it all but you can't have it
    It's cryin', bleedin', lying on the floor
    So you lay down on it and you do it some more
    You've got to share it, so you dare it
    Then you bare it and you tear it
    You want it all but you can't have it
    It's in your face but you can't grab it
    It's alive, afraid, a lie, a sin
    It's magit, it's tragic, it's a loss, it's a win
    It's dark, it's moist, it's a bitter pain
    It's sad it happened and it's a shame
    You want it all but you can't have it
    It's in your face but you can't grab it
    What is it?
    It's it
    What is it?...

    Later found out that in the making, they only let him flip and flop once and just replayed it instead of making the poor thing continue to gasp for air [​IMG]

    Climb Every Mountain!
    Just love song and Julie Andrews singing it in the meadow...

    Cannot remember all the lyrics but here's some

    Climb Every Mountain
    Cross every stream
    Follow every rainbow
    Till you find your dream,,,,,

    A dream is a wish every life can fulfill
    Every day of your life for as long as you live...

    I just love those Rodgers and Hammerstein Musicals...

    Kinda took that dream leap when we bought the farm....mmm... Great post by the way

    Have a blessed day.

    This one I have listened to daily since summer


    This one when it is not a great day


    This one for my horse I bought in APril.It played on the way after we left the barn after I found her and my dh had kept saying you'll find her you just need patience. I already knew she was THE ONE and that is what we call her for a barn name.It took 10 months and looking at 30 different horses. But She had me when she turned her face to me.All my horsey friends see the irony in her name.I didnlt like the song much till after I got her.

    tough question - there are so many - I'm always humming something (drives hubby nuts).

    I would have to say almost anything by Tom Petty - I particularly love "Runaway Train" and "Saving Grace"

    I also tend to listen to a lot of Peter Gabriel. (favorite is "Washing of the Water" )

    can't find a link to Runaway Train, but here is Saving Grace >>




    ETA -- I just found out this is Soul Asylum, not Tom Petty - sure does sound like Tom, though.

    RUNAWAY TRAIN
    Call you up in the middle of the night,
    like a firefly without a light,
    you were there like a blow torch burnin',
    I was a key that could use a little turnin'

    So tired that I couldn't even sleep,
    so many secrets I couldn't keep,
    I promised myself I wouldn't weep,
    one more promise I couldn't keep

    It seems no one can help me now,
    I'm in too deep theres no way out,
    this time I have really led myself a-stray

    Runaway train never goin' back,
    wrong way on a one way track
    seems like I should be getting somewhere,
    somehow I'm neither here nor there

    Can you help me remember how to smile,
    make it somehow all seem worth while,
    how on earth did I get so jaded,
    life's mysteries seem so faded

    I can go where no one else can go,
    I know what no one else knows,
    here I am just a drowning in the rain,
    with a ticket for a runaway train

    Everything seems cut and dry,
    day and night, earth and sky,
    somehow I just don't believe it

    Runaway train never goin' back,
    wrong way on a one way track
    seems like I should be getting somewhere,
    somehow I'm neither here nor there

    Bought a ticket for a runaway train,
    like a madman laughin' at the rain,
    a little out of touch little insane,
    its just easier than dealing with the pain

    Runaway train never goin' back,
    wrong way on a one way track
    seems like I should be getting somewhere,
    somehow I'm neither here nor there

    Runaway train never comin' back,
    runaway train tearin' up the track,
    runaway train burnin' in my veins,
    run away but it always seems the same
