  10. Nothing Compares to You--Sinead O'Conner

    These are some of my favourite love songs...doesn't include any of the Motown or Atlantic Soul classics that I filled my middle teens with. They deserve their own top 10!!

    What songs make you quiver???

    Dennie mentioned my book on her blog today!! What a sweetie!


    1. I am a total Country nut - my fave is "Lovin' You Lovin' Me" by Chris Cagle

    2. I haven't heard this guy sing! I do love country--Gary Allan is my new fav :) Heartbreaking because his wife committed suicide a year ago.

    3. I saw Dennie's blog - nice ... you know, if someone else had all of that information, someone else might do the same thing ...

      Etta James' version of "At Last"

    4. Eve--thank you. I can give you the information, or you could wait till nearer the time and hopefully have cover art?? I hope it is good cover art other wise I'll be cringing in a corner!!!! You're a good friend, even if you are insane!

      Must listen to the Etta James and Chris Cagle songs!

    5. Okay - I want to do you up proper, so we'll wait until that art work is done - and I'll put you on the webpage in my book of the month section! (Same for Dennie when her's is ready to come out). You MUST find that version of the song - it's a definite must for romance.

      You need a little insanity in your life - admit it :)

    6. Insanity is good--I have a LOT of insanity in my life!!!

    7. "At Last" is a great song when Etta belts it out.

      "More Than This" by Roxy Music & "Slave to Love" by Bryan Ferry. Heck, he could sing "Itsy, Bitsy Spider" and I'd melt.

      My dh loves "If I Should Fall Behind" and plays it all the time.

    8. Realized that Dennie's was coming out next month - so check out the webpage!

    9. That would be my webpage - sheesh!

    10. I saw Dennie's post on the book and you deserve the praise and adoration.

      I'm not a big country fan, but Faith Hill's, "Breath" just leaves me breathless. I also like "The Way You Love Me" it's a fun, lighthearted, heady view of what love can do to us.

      I'll looking forward to reading a copy of your book.

    11. Susie--thanks!! No one can have enough adoration :) We can adore each other :) I like those songs too!! Ten wasn't enough!

    12. Rene, I like Brian Ferry, and the Pretenders, and Elton John... the list is endless!!

    13. Eve--nice one! Dennie, great looking book!!

    14. Ella Fitzgerald - Anything Goes
      Shirley Bassey - I can't remember the name dammit. But it gives me the chills.
      I love the Breakfast Club theme, Don't You Forget About Me, Simple Minds I think. It transports me directly to the library.

    15. Scott--Ella certainly, Ray Charles, I can't stop loving you, Otis Redding--everything he ever sang.

      Simple Minds reminds me of my teenage years and of my friend Deb's ex-husband. So I like the music, but I don't listen to it if I can help it :) I like that movie too :)

    16. U2 and Bruce's version of 'Stand by me'.

    17. Anyway - when you get your artwork done, that's what we'll do for you!

    18. Hey girl, I've had hell getting thru to the comments on Dennie's blog - so KUDOS!!!! yippeee!!!! Very nice, even!

    19. Enya. The Cranberries.

      You look wonderful tonight by Clapton

    20. Eve--thanks pet.
      Bebo--thank you!! You did good!

      Kendra--Linger by the Cranberries--love it. And Eric C. Very very good music.

    21. All great songs!

      Highway to Heaven
      Unchained Meloday
      You're My Inspiration
      Forever Young

      Many, many more I'm too tired to recall.

    22. Remind me how "She" goes....I forgot about Sinead. Simple Minds, too, though it reminds me more of friends going off to college.

    23. LOL Mary--I wish I could hum it to you.

      It is slow and gentle, but with character.

      May be the face I can't forget
      The trace of pleasure or regret
      May be my treasure or the price I have to pay
      May be the song that summer sings
      May be the chill that autumn brings
      May be a hundred different things
      Within the measure of a day

      May be the beauty or the beast
      May be the famine or the feast
      May turn each day into a heaven or a hell
      She may be the mirror of my dreams
      The smile reflected in a stream
      She may not be what she may seem
      Inside her shell

      Who always seems so happy in a crowd
      Whose eyes can be so private and so proud
      No one's allowed to see them when they cry
      May be the love that cannot hope to last
      May come to me from shadows of the past
      That I'll remember till the day I die

      May be the reason I survive
      The why and wherefore I'm alive
      The one I'll care for through the rough in ready years
      I'll take her laughter and her tears
      And make them all my souvenirs
      For where she goes I've got to be
      The meaning of my life is

      She, oh she
