Day 141 of 365 Days of Song

Day 141 – Annie Lennox – Love Song for a Vampire

Recently bought Francis Ford Copplola’s Dracula, so here’s the song from the movie.

Oh loneliness, oh hopelessness
To search the ends of time
For there is in all the world
No greater love than mine.

Day 139 – Katyna Ranieri – Oh My Love

This is the song from that great kill scene in the tremendously good film Drive.

Oh my love
High above us
The Sun now
Embraces Nature
And from Nature we should learn
That all can start again
As the stars must fade away
To give a bright new day

Day 127 – Captain and Tennille – Love Will Keep Us Together

I first heard this song from the movie Get Over It (as shown in the video). Instantly fell in love with it. It’s the sort of soppy 70’s I tend to like less than 25% of the time.

Here’s the original performers, as the people singing in the video were not the artists behind the song – just thrown in that for opening credits scene it seems! CAPTAIN & TENNILLE ❖ love will keep us together (official video)

 

 

Day 118 of 365 Days of Song

Day 118 – Dan Hill – It’s a Long Road

The theme song from First Blood and the rest of the Rambo franchise.I loved these films growing up – and still do. The theme is beautiful in its contrast to the action and violence within the films.

It’s a long road
And it’s hard as well
Tell me what do you do to survive
When they draw first blood
That’s just the start of it
Day and night
You gotta fight
To keep alive

Day 109  – Tears For Fears – Head Over Heels

Because, sometimes, I get head over heels when I shouldn’t! And it’s used in my favourite scene in Donnie Darko.

Something happens and I’m head over heels
And this my four leaf clover
I’m on the line, one open mind
This is my four leaf clover
In my mind’s eye
one little boy, one little man,
Funny how time flies.

Day 104 – Ray LaMontagne – Without Words

I caught attention of this song when my buddy, Sue, dragged me to to watch The Fault in Our Stars at the cinema when it came out. These scene that has thing song really touched me. A beautiful song.

Not all of life is cruel
Not all of life is so untrue
Not all of life is so untrue

I can hear the morning birds
So light up on the branches
And each in turn
They sing of all God’s praises
Yes, without words
Without words

Without words

Day 100 of 365 Days of Song

Day 100 – Lynn Anderson – I Beg Your Pardon, I Never Promised You (A Rose Garden)

Another song I that came to my attention from the Zodiac Movie Soundtrack. Such a good song, and Lynn Anderson was, indeed, very beautiful.

I could sing you a tune or promise you the moon,
But if that’s what it takes to hold you,
I’d just as soon let you go, but there’s one thing I want you to know.
You better look before you leap, still waters run deep,
And there won’t always be someone there to pull you out,
And you know what I’m talkin’ about.
So smile for a while and let’s be jolly:
Love shouldn’t be so melancholy.
Come along and share the good times while we can.

I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden.
Along with the sunshine,
There’s gotta be a little rain sometimes.
