30 Day Song Challenge – Day Fourteen

A song you’d love to be played at your wedding.

I wanted to move away from the obvious choices here. If you take in the lyrics, they can SO apply for a wedding day.

“Messenger calls / calling us up / stand over by my side.
Finding myself / believing in you / get over by my side.

In every heaven / there’s a chance that I take
In every heaven / dreams can awake
In every heaven / til morning lights stay”

I mean…just beautiful. Jim Kerr writes the most beautiful words.

30 Day Song Challenge – Day Thirteen

A song you like from the 70s.

I have such a growing appreciation for VERY early Simple Minds stuff. Some so early, well, it was actually still Johnny And The Self Abusers material.

And – HUGE INTAKE OF BREATH – Jim didn’t even write the lyrics for this! It was written by John Milarkey. I KNOW! (Said in Craig Ferguson style.)

30 Day Song Challenge – Day Eleven

A song you never get tired of…

The most beautiful song. It will be my favourite for forever and a day. I fell in love with it the first time I heard it and cried my eyes out.

It was one of the first things I ever wrote on the SMO FB visitor wall…how beautiful I found it and what it did to me.

It doesn’t bring me to tears so much now…but it still means the absolute world to me – forever tattooed on my skin. “I’m singing memories.”
