What do you guys (and especially girls) think?

Oh, no worries!

I was just being mock-indignant. And alluding to Bassey's status as a gay icon. Along with Garland, Streisand and Minelli. But let's not hijack what I hope will develop into a really interesting thread. Smiling

Apologies

It was crude I know, but I was just being honest Linz.

I admit that reason is a small and feeble flame, a flickering torch by stumblers carried in the starless night, -- blown and flared by passion's storm, -- and yet, it is the only light. Extinguish that, and nought remains.- - Robert Green Ingersoll

Hmmm ...

Not sure I needed to know any of that. This is a family board, you know. Smiling

Back to the songs. The girls are all asleep. Or making music. Guess we'll have to wait till tomorrow. Smiling

It may have been possible....

But even when under general anaesthetic I doubt one would be able to slip a buttered knitting needle passed my sphincter, not to mention the ferocity and insidious nature of my farts.

Homosexual relationships for me would have been short lived I'm afraid.

Hey! None of that.

We're talking about songs.

Oh yes!

Bassey is a force of nature. But Hilton, I didn't know you were gay. Smiling

Bored, eh?

Casey's picture

All right, then permit us to be equally bored in the other direction. Love you, too.

Shirley was appropriately brassy on "Diamonds Are Forever."

But I'm really talking about songs that are about that most embarrassing and proud subject: LOVE. Songs that make you weep. Songs that say it all. I think the song I set the stage with says all of that -- I posted it here so others would post theirs so I could learn from them. I've already heard from Linz and HWH.

I'd love to hear what others think of this wonderful song and other songs they recommend.

Its the voice

You're right, its perhaps not the best of the genre, but I'm in love with Shirley's voice. The power and the glory.

Beautiful Love Songs

p.s. Girls? This is the most solemn and wonderful song about love I've ever heard -- let me know if there is another even better. Please. Perigo's votes don't count since I'm not homo. Sorry, old Chap. Did you even listen to this one? You might give it a nod, at least, you bastard! ')

Yes, I did. Got bored early into it. Didn't like the Bassey much either. Gabbled the opening line.

Try Della Reese—Softly my Love.

Homo-Linz-Bastard

OK, thanks for that

Nice contribution, HWH.

A little torch-songy and depressed for my taste, but hey -- mine could seem melancholy I guess from a certain perspective.

I'll have to check out Eva Cassidy's version, though I believe the version I linked to is perfection and therefore hard to improve upon. Eye

Casey

Thanks for that Linz, I'll check them out but this is my choice

HWH's picture

Its beautiful though Eva Cassidys's is better,
but when it comes to lovesongs none of them compare to this

and no, I'm not in the closet.

I'd take Donkey Serenade over any of that

Casey's picture

In a heartbeat. Swallow that, Perigo!

Love,
