Musings From A Musical Mind

Growing up in the 70’s (at least my junior high and high school years) I couldn’t turn on the radio without hearing Linda Ronstadt at least once a day.  Who could forget the song she made famous, “You’re no good“?  She had a very unique voice and it was easy to recognize within the first few measures of a song.

What you may not know is that Linda was not just good at belting out the pop hits in the 70’s but later went on to do several Jazz albums and one from  the 40’s.  One of my music professors once told me that her very favorite artist in that 40’s genre – was Linda Ronstadt – a good 5 years past the time I had listened to her in high school.  There probably isn’t anything that this artist can’t sing – but I must say that I was pleasantly surprised to stumble on this great song written by Randy Newman called “Feels like home”.  Many have tried to copy it since she sang it – but she really is the owner – plain and simple.  And although I really loved it when hearing other covers – it truly is best by Linda.  Take a listen and see if you don’t agree.

I’m dedicating this to my dear husband of almost 30 years – Greg.  He is truly my best friend and partner – he accepts me just as I am – with my many shortcomings and flaws and shows tireless love and devotion to me – making me feel like I was pretty smart to have found and married him – all those years ago.  It’s wonderful to find a deep love and friendship with your partner that only grows richer over time.  I wish the same for you and yours.

God Bless

There’s something in your eyes
Makes me wanna lose my self,
Makes me wanna lose myself in your arms,
There’s something in your voice
That makes my heart beat fast
Hope this feeling lasts
For the rest of my life

If you knew how lonely
My life has been
And how long I’ve been so alone
And if you knew how I wanted someone to come along
And change my life the way you’ve done

It feels like home to me
It feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way back where I come from
It feels like home to me
It feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way back where I belong

A window breaks down on lumdard street
And a siren wails in the night
But I’m all right cuz I have you here with me,
And I can almost see through the dark there is light

Well if you knew how much this moment means to me
And how long I’ve waited for your touch
And if you knew how happy you are making me
I never thought that I’d love anyone so much

It feels like home to me
It feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way back where I come from
It feels like home to me
It feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way back where I belong

It feels like I’m all the way back where I belong.

Comments on: "Feels Like Home – sung by Linda Ronstadt – remember her?" (6)

  1. Thanks babe; this is beautiful! Feels like home to me too…

  2. Ahhhh….love Linda…I still have a few of her albums somewhere! A great tribute to your husband Cindy…bless you both!

  3. Linda Ronstadt’s been one of my favorites since I first heard her belt out “Different Drum” with the Stony Ponies way back when. Not only does she sing jazz, she has a fantastic album out of 40s music. She also has some beautiful Spanish songs. Her Mom is Mexican. Her dad used to own the largest hardware store in Tucson, AZ. Not sure if the family still owns it. We’re going back a long way when I lived there. Looking at these pictures, it’s hard to imagine she’s now 65. She can still sing, though! I heard her maybe a year ago on some show, I think. I could have the time wrong. This song is absolutely gorgeous. I’ve heard it once or twice before, but not for a long time. She has an amazing voice!

    • Yay! Someone else who appreciates Linda Ronstadt! Yes I did know about the 40’s music – and left it out of my blog – I will correct that! 65? Oh my – she can’t be!
