Try this one,

...Quiet thoughts come floating down

And settle softly to the ground

Like golden autumn leaves around my feet...

Memories
Elvis Presley

HI B4real,

You are right...Its a lovely song.

I lost my mum a few weeks ago so this song means quite a lot to me. Sometimes memories are all we have to get us through.

Over to you now.

Thanks Karren,

Yesterday my parents would have been celebrating their wedding anniversary but my dad has passed away some years now so I know how you are feeling.

Also yesterday I heard this song at work and I thought it would be perfect to post here. Now I have to say that the universe works in mysterious ways......

"The way she held your hand,
The little things you planned,
Her memory is with you yet"....

Thanks Bev.

I think it's another great Elvis song...not as well known as some.

'That's someone you never forget'...

Perfectly correct and very quick Karren :D I thought that I would go for three times in a row for Elvis!
This was recorded: 1961/06/25, first released on Pot Luck - I actually have the original LP ;-)

and I chose this poignant video yesterday too!

Back to you now.

EDIT: It's Saturday morning here and I have just seen that it is your birthday. :D I remember now from last year that it was close to mine which was on the 1st June. There are so many forum members who have birthdays in this month. 8)

Please do have a Happy Birthday.

Thanks for the Birthday Greeting Bev. Hope you had a good birthday too!

I had a wonderful day, if somewhat bitter sweet. Spent it with someone I love very dearly (hope you're reading this!) but as always it was hard to say goodbye at the end of the day.

Try this one, seems quite appropriate!

..Each time we meet love
I find complete love
Without your sweet love
what would life be...

Karren xx

Hi Karren,

Glad you had a great day and thank for your birthday wishes for me too. :D I can't believe how quick this last year has gone!

So in light of what you have said about your love you would just have to start off saying:

"I bless the day I found you.
I want to stay around you.
And so I beg you, let it be me."

Let It Be Me
by The Everly Brothers

...and of course you know that I (once again) have the original LP :)

Thanks Karren,

They are wonderful singers!

....and this is another song I heard at work yesterday.

"And every night I'd sit alone and learn
What loneliness meant
Up in my rented room above the world"

great song, great souvenirs from french teacher mr. moors, who - "il y a longtemps ..." - used to teach us many more things than the language itself ; i had not heard this english version, and i always thought the french version by françoise hardy (la maison où j'ai grandi) was the original, and adriano celentano was the copy.
thanks for correcting me, and for bringing back these sweet memories.
