Are You Forgettable?

Singer Katherine McPhee and pianist Lang Lang ...

I have a confession to make. A guilty pleasure if you will.

I watch American Idol. Every season since season 3.  I didn’t really get into before that – but I do remember every season since Fantasia.

Over the years I have seen some extraordinary talent emerge from that program – among those really great – Kris Allen,  Chris Daughtry, David Cook and Carrie Underwood – the likes of which we would never have heard about otherwise.  All of them have made songs famous – and we can name at least one that is our favorite from each artist.

A few years back Katherine McPhee was a runner-up on the show – and other than “Over the Rainbow” – I was not completely taken with her voice.  I thought she tried too hard to make her voice do all the runs and vocal acrobatics that some should not do.  I thought she was forgettable, until…

A couple of years later I heard this song on the radio.  “Ordinary World”.  It was amazing – both music and lyrics.  I found it and put it on a playlist for my car and computer – and have never grown tired of hearing it when it comes up in the rotation.  I think you will like it too.

Forgettable?  I think not.

Who is someone who has surprised you – when you thought they were forgettable?

 

Enjoy and God Bless

To Make You Feel My Love

Love Love Love

There’s something so sweet and sincere about this version of this song.  I’ve heard it done many times now – possibly the most famous was when Kris Allen sang it on American Idol some 3 years ago now.  Every time this would come across my Pandora Radio while I was writing – I would stop and find out more information about it.  I decided to share it with you today.

My prayer for you today is this:  That you would have someone who loves you like this and wants to make you feel their love.

God Bless

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I would offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love
When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love
I know you haven’t made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I’ve known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong
I’d go hungry, I’d go blind for you
I’d go crawling down the aisle for you
There ain’t nothing that I wouldn’t do
To make you feel my love
The storms are raging on a rolling sea
Down the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
But you ain’t seen nothing like me yet
There ain’t nothing that I wouldn’t do
Go to the ends of the earth for you
Make you happy, make your dreams come true
To make you feel my love

Live Like We’re Dying

Sometimes we fall down and can’t get back up
We’re hiding behind skin thats too tough
How come we don’t say I love you enough
Till it’s too late, it’s not too late
Our hearts are hungry for a food that won’t come
We could make a feast from these crumbs
We’re all staring down the barrel of a gun
So if your life flashed before you
What would you wish you would’ve done

Yeah gotta start
Looking at the hands of the time we’ve been given here
This is all that we got and we gotta start thinkin it
Every second counts on a clock thats tickin
Gotta live like we’re dying
We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or throw it all away
We gotta tell em that we love em
While we got the chance to say
Gotta live like we’re dying

And if your plane fell out of the sky
Who would you call with your last goodbye
Should be so careful who we left out of our lives
So when we’re left for absolution
There’ll be no one on the line

Yeah gotta start
Looking at the hands of the time we’ve been given here
This is all that we got and we gotta start thinkin it
Every second counts ona clock thts tickin
Gotta live like we’re dying
We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or throw it all away
We gotta tell em that we love em
While we got the chance to say
Gotta live like we’re dying

Like we’re dying
Ohhhh like we’re dying
Like we’re dying
Ohhhh like we’re dying

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or throw it all away
We gotta tell em that we love em
While we got the chance to say
Gotta live like we’re dying

You never know a good thing til it’s gone
You never see a crash til it’s heads on
All these people right when we’re dead wrong
You never know a good thing til it’s gone

Yeah gotta start
Looking at the hands of the time we’ve been given here
This is all that we got and we gotta start thinkin it
Every second counts ona clock thts tickin
Gotta live like we’re dying
We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or throw it all away
We gotta tell em that we love em
While we got the chance to say
Gotta live like we’re dying

Like we’re dying
Ohhhh like we’re dying
Like we’re dying
Ohhhh like we’re dying

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or throw it all away
We gotta tell em that we love em
While we got the chance to say
Gotta live like we’re dying
