well MHB, with three teenage boys, i'm sure the song hits home! :wink:

glad you like some songs i like. i sometimes wonder if my taste in music is so un-contemporary as to be uncool. but who cares... those are the songs that make me want to cry! still, it's nice to have company.

your project sounds really interesting. i guess copyright belongs to your client, but if there's anyway you could share the slideshows when done i'd be very interested.

Actually 1 teenage boy and 2 girls. Not sure they'd be worth sharing, a little like watching someone's vacation photos. B...o...r...i...n...g.

Can I sidetrack a little? Anyone cares to read a Singapore love story? I was on my way to work when someone handed me a newsletter for some beauty chain. There was a love story right smack on the inside front cover.

An Unexpected Date

At a candlelit dining table, a man and a woman were sitting opposite each other.
“I like you.”

Mary Hatch Bailey wrote:Hi Guys,

Working on another project and was wondering: are there any songs that really tug at your heart strings and make you cry? Not looking for romantic love as a topic, more like the fleeting beauty of childhood, like Circle Game by Joni Mitchell. Or Ray Charles singing Over The Rainbow. Any ideas?

Thanks in Advance,

MHB


hi MHB
I do have mine, but unfortunatelly they are in portuguese or spanish, still valid for your research?

IMHO, I think those sentimental lirycs are pretty much linked to your mother language so you can get the real feeling and expression, but I also do have some english songs that I love, but do not think any of them can make me cry...

well, at least they can bring up memories, and those memories can :)

Hi Mary, if it's for children's art, how about Delta Goodrem's version of 'I Can Sing A Rainbow'? Gives me goosebumps everytime I hear it...my son loves that song... :) Will try to think of others...
