Well it is time for ‘C’.
I had suggestions from Pamela for Caledonia which I am ashamed to say I had never heard before but as I am Irish not Scottish I feel I cannot pick that one and she and another also suggested Catch the Wind by Donovan (I love that one).
I had a great Kinks song suggested too (Come Dancing) and another song I had never heard of called Calling All Angels.
I love Candy by the fantastic Paolo Nutini (and my son sings it beautifully too).
A dear friend suggested California Dreaming, oh it is so hard to choose.
I came up with Candle in the Wind as I an a fan of Elton and especially Bernie Taupin's lyrics but it’s a bit ‘obvious’ I suppose. I like La Cienega smiled too by Ryan Adams but I guess that is an ’L’ not a ‘C’.
I asked M for a suggestion last night and straightaway he suggested this song which I adore.
Can’t Help Falling in Love with You!
(Where did that come from?).
(I was worried the song starts with an ‘I’ but it doesn’t).
There are three cracking versions on YouTube in my opinion:
Elvis of course - the song IS Elvis’s really don’t you think?
Celine Dion - I had never heard her sing it before and I was blown away by her unique rendition. I have already asked in my next life to have a really lovely singing voice and to possess the power that Celine has in her voice.
Finally I stumbled upon Andrea Bocelli’s version. I already LOVE this man’s voice and I must admit that only this version brought a tear to my eye.
So I am posting all three and would love you to vote for your favourite. Or do tell me if you have any other ‘C’ suggestions.
(Sorry about the big gaps between videos, had a bit of trouble posting).
Bye for now,
Go mbeannai Dia duit,
