Songs That Make Your Heart Sing

July 11, 2007 | 12 Comments »

Have you ever been invited to a play a game that you don’t know? Are you the kind of person who plays without knowing the rules or do you wait until you figure out how it works before you join in the fun?

I’m usually the hang back girl, because I don’t like to risk making a fool or spoiling the fun for everyone else who knows what they’re doing. But how much fun is that?

So in the spirit of good fun, I’m responding to Barb’s blog tag which was originated by Hilda Carrol’s game, inspired by Optimist Lab’s High Vibes Game. I don’t know exactly how to play, but I’ll give it my best shot, intending there’s no way to do it wrong. 🙂

Barb asked me to name the song that makes my heart song lately, which is one that I didn’t even know the name or artist of until I looked it up for this post. Here’s Natasha Bedingfield’s “Unwritten” (the link takes you to the YouTube video):

I am unwritten, can’t read my mind, I’m undefined

I’m just beginning, the pen’s in my hand, ending unplanned

Staring at the blank page before you

Open up the dirty window

Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance

So close you can almost taste it

Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin

No one else can feel it for you

Only you can let it in

No one else, no one else

Can speak the words on your lips

Drench yourself in words unspoken

Live your life with arms wide open

Today is where your book begins

The rest is still unwritten

I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines

We’ve been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can’t live that way

Today is where your book begins

The rest is still unwritten

The rest is still unwritten

Cool song, huh? I like songs about possibility! Here’s Barb’s original post that explains this game. If you want to join in, you can request a tag, but I sure don’t know how.

Now I think I’m supposed to tag a couple of others for this game. Here goes:

Jeff at betterplancoaching

Paulette at pmbethel

Amy at Success Secrets

Then I’m supposed to do trackbacks, but I don’t even know what that is. When I figure it out, I’ll edit this post. Would LOVE it if those of you reading would comment with your favorite songs that make your heart sing if you’re so inspired!

‘Night all. 🙂

    MAGIC
    sung by Olivia Newton-John

    “Come take my hand
    You should know me
    I’ve always been in your mind
    You know that I’ll be kind
    I’ll be guiding you

    Building your dream
    Has to start now
    There’s no other road to take
    You won’t make a mistake
    I’ll be guiding you

    You have to believe we are magic
    Nothin’ can stand in our way
    You have to believe we are magic
    Don’t let your aim ever stray
    And if all your hopes survive
    Your destiny will arrive
    I’ll bring all your dreams alive
    For you

    From where I stand
    You are home free
    The planets align so rare
    There’s promise in the air
    And I’m guiding you

    Through every turn I’ll be near you
    I’ll come anytime you call
    I’ll catch you when you fall
    I’ll be guiding you

    You have to believe we are magic
    Nothin’ can stand in our way
    You have to believe we are magic
    Don’t let your aim ever stray
    And if all your hopes survive
    Your destiny will arrive
    I’ll bring all your dreams alive
    For you”

    Love,
    ~Sonora

    Kool,

    I do not know about trackbacks either, so I posted my response in both places. Does this satisfy as a response to my Refelctions post?

    La Isla Bonita

    Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
    Just like I’d never gone, I knew the song

    A young girl with eyes like the desert. It all seems like yesterday, not far away

    Chorus:
    Tropical the island breeze
    All of nature wild and free
    This is where I long to be

    La isla bonita

    And when the samba played
    The sun would set so high
    Ring through my ears and sting my eyes

    Your Spanish lullaby

    I fell in love with San Pedro
    Warm wind carried on the sea, he called to me
    Te dijo te amo
    I prayed that the days would last
    They went so fast

    Chorus:
    Tropical the island breeze
    All of nature wild and free
    This is where I long to be

    La isla bonita

    And when the samba played
    The sun would set so high
    Ring through my ears and sting my eyes

    Your Spanish lullaby

    I want to be where the sun warms the sky
    When it’s time for siesta you can watch them go by
    Beautiful faces, no cares in this world
    Where a girl loves a boy, and a boy…
    Loves a girl

    Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
    It all seems like yesterday, not far away

    Chorus:
    Tropical the island breeze
    All of nature wild and free
    This is where I long to be
    La isla bonita
    And when the samba played
    The sun would set so high
    Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
    Your Spanish lullaby

    Tropical the island breeze
    All of nature wild and free
    This is where I long to be
    La isla bonita
    And when the samba played
    The sun would set so high
    Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
    Your Spanish lullaby

    Tropical the island breeze
    All of nature wild and free
    This is where I long to be
    La isla bonita
    And when the samba played
    The sun would set so high
    Ring through my ears and sting my eyes

    Your Spanish lullaby

    Jeannette,
    I think you did it just right! At least, that’s how I did it, lol. I *think* a trackback is when you put a link to the original post in your post. I *think* that’s how I saw that you had posted this (thanks!) and how Hilda saw it, too (and she didn’t comment on MY site 😉 ).

    You know, I’ve read the lyrics to Unwritten in a couple of posts, but I’ve never actually heard the song. I should go look it up on YouTube!

    And I also love Magic – Xanadu was a favorite movie of mine for a loooong time as a kid. I got the video and watched it over and over. 😀

    Thanks for playing!

    I have so many, but this is one of my favorites…

    Beautiful Surprise
    by India Arie

    It’s like yesterday
    I didn’t even know your name
    Now today
    You’re always on my mind
    I never could have predicted that I feel this way
    You are beautiful surprise
    Intoxicated every time I hear your voice
    You’ve got me on a natural high
    It’s almost like I didn’t even have a choice
    You are a beautiful surprise

    Whatever it is you came to teach me
    I am here to learn it cause
    I believe that we are written in the stars
    I don’t know what the future holds
    But I’m living in the moment
    And I’m thankful for the man that you are, you are, you are
    You are everything I ask for in my prayers
    So I know my angels brought you to my life
    Your energy is healing to my soul
    You are a beautiful surprise
    You are an inspiration to my life
    You are the reason why I smile
    You are a beautiful surprise

    Settlin’ by Sugarland

    I won’t post the whole lyrics, but here’s the part that gets me jazzed up…

    I’ve been leavin’ it up to fate
    It’s my life so it’s mine to make

    I ain’t settlin’ just gettin’ by
    I’ve had enough so so for the rest of my life
    Tired of shootin’ too low so raise the bar high.
    “Just enough” ain’t enough this time
    I ain’t settlin’ for anything less than everything.

    Although Pat Benatar is my favorite artist,this isn’t my favorite song. But, I find myself listening to this one more and more often. PAT BENATAR

    Le Bel Age
    There comes a time, when you should see things clear
    Free from my innocence, there is no circumstance too severe
    Only the need for us, for us to believe again
    There is a time, temptation’s on the run
    Dreamer you’ve had your way
    Soldier you’ve had your day, in the sun
    Now it’s time, for us to begin again

    Chorus:

    Le bel age
    Only our love will remain
    Le bel age
    Close to the truth once again

    There comes a time (there comes a time)
    When you must find your way
    Begger has made his bed
    Wrapped in a silhoutte, of gold and gray
    Now it’s time, yes it’s time, for us to begin again

    (repeat chorus twice)

    Standing so close to me, the possibility
    To change our destiny, I see it perfectly, moving so naturally
    Nothing can stand in our way

    (repeat chorus three times)

    Le bel age
    Only our love will remain (only)
    Le bel age (only our love, only our love)
    Close to the truth once again

    (repeat chorus)

    Le bel age (le bel age)
    Le bel age

    Boston: Higher Power.

    Not “makes my heart sing” exactly, so much as “makes my soul shout for joy to the skies.” It feels like flying.

    Hey, my high power
    The world is spinning but I’m not afraid.

    Yeah, give me the power
    It’s the beginning of another day…

  11. Amy S. Grant says:

    Hi Jeannette –

    I don’t know trackbacks from Adam. I didn’t even get whta you meant when you “tagged” me on my blog, until I just read your post!

    So I’ll post my answer here, and let me know if there’s something for me to do on my site!

    Amy

    p.s. this song may seem cheesy, but it absolutely lifts my spirits, no matter what, so I LOVE it. It’s an oldie about putting yourself out there and playing full-out!

    Georgie Girl by the Seekers

    Hey there! Georgie girl
    Swinging down the street so fancy free,
    nobody you meet could ever see
    the loneliness there inside you.

    Hey there! Georgie girl
    why do all the boys just pass you by?
    Could it be you just don’t try, or is it the clothes you wear?
    You’re always window shopping but never stopping to buy.
    So shed those dowdy feathers and fly a little bit.
    Hey there! Georgie girl
    there’s another Georgie deep inside
    Bring out all the love you hide and
    oh, what a change there’d be,
    The world would see a new Georgie girl.

    Hey there! Georgie girl
    Dreaming of the someone you could be
    Life is a reality, you can’t always run away.
    Don’t be so scared of changing and rearranging yourself.
    It’s time for jumping down from the shelf a little bit.

    Is it too late to still play?

    KT Tunstall

    “Suddenly I See”

    Her face is a map of the world
    Is a map of the world
    You can see she’s a beautiful girl
    She’s a beautiful girl
    And everything around her is a silver pool of light
    The people who surround her feel the benefit of it
    It makes you calm
    She holds you captivated in her palm

    Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
    This is what I wanna be
    Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
    Why the hell it means so much to me

    I feel like walking the world
    Like walking the world
    You can hear she’s a beautiful girl
    She’s a beautiful girl
    She fills up every corner like she’s born in black and white
    Makes you feel warmer when you’re trying to remember
    What you heard
    She likes to leave you hanging on her word

    Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
    This is what I wanna be
    Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
    Why the hell it means so much to me

    And she’s taller than most
    And she’s looking at me
    I can see her eyes looking from a page in a magazine
    Oh she makes me feel like I could be a tower
    A big strong tower
    She got the power to be
    The power to give
    The power to see

    Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
    This is what I wanna be
    Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
    Why the hell it means so much to me

    Makes me smile and sing really loudly…
