My favorite songs at this moment:
Michael Bolton “Soul Provider”
Michael Jackson “Man in the Mirror”
Soehne Mannheims “Ich wollte wie Orpheus singen” (Mtv unplugged version)
Pohlmann “Morgen schon”
Dobie Gray “Drift Away”
Simon & Garfunkel “Flowers never bend with the rainfall”
Jay-Z “Song Cry” (MTV Unplugged version)
Cyndi Lauper “Girls just wanna have fun”
Etta James “All I could do was cry”
Michael Bolton “Lean on me”
Pinnawela “Joy in my belly”
Some of these are my all time favorites. I love how much feeling there is in the voice of Etta James and Michael Bolton. When Michael sings “Lean on me”, he is full of passion, confidence and strength. I love this song.
Some (most) of the songs are classics but some are not. Pinnawela for example created a song full of joy and fun that makes you become more enthusiastic about life. I also like her song called
“Several times”. Pinnawela is polish but she sings in english and the whole album called “Soulahili” is just great.
As I am writing this, I am at the library listening to the tracks I mentioned above. Now a few words about “flowers never bend with the rainfall”. This song has a beautiful harmony of voices, as it is always the case with Simon & Garfunkel. It also has daunting, poetic lyrics: “The mirror on my wall caught some image dark and small, but I’m not sure at all it’s my reflection” or “So I continue to continue to pretend that my life will never end and that flowers never bend with the rainfall.
And “Song cry” – I love the entire Jay-Z unplugged album. It is this album that I started to listen to Jay-Z from. It has some amazing guests and Jay-Z shows his absolute mastery.
The last words will be about “Man in the Mirror”. I don’t know, this song just touches my heart and makes me cry from time to time. There is something universal in it, it is simply beautiful.
Anyway, if you are curious just listen to the songs online. CHeers. Hope you enjoyed the post.
