Memorable Moments

October 30, 2009 at 9:16 PM (Humor, Memorable Moments, Music, Pets, Relationships)

To capture the little moments in life, I am going to attempt a regular feature on our blog where I list 5 memorable moments from the day.

  1. Walking hand in hand through the mall and loving every minute.
  2. Singing “No Scrubs” by TLC loudly in the car.  Takes me back to high-school.
  3. Hearing Ben complain about prices.  I’m so glad that we are on the same financial page. 🙂
  4. Peanut whimpering to get in my lap.
  5. My manager at work dressing up as phlegm for Halloween.  Her job title is FLM (Front Line Manager) so her costume was very appropriate….and gross. 🙂

A Song for You

July 11, 2009 at 10:36 PM (Music)

Have you ever discovered a song that you can’t believe you didn’t know existed? I have made such a discovery. You may already know the song and you may not. Nonetheless, the song is beautiful and has been sung by many different artists. Check out the videos below. Let me know what you think! This would make a great slow dance song. 🙂

Michael Jackson

June 27, 2009 at 9:32 AM (Inspirational, Music)

Like millions of other people, we are sad about the passing of Michael Jackson. His songs touched lives and he will not be forgotten. Everyone will remember him for some reason or another–some good, some bad. I particularly love the lyrics of some of his songs, for example, “Man in the Mirror” and “Heal the World.” I remember listening to “Heal the World” over and over and over as a kid. I still love it to this day.

In general, he was a great performer. He sang those wonderful lyrics with such passion that you couldn’t help getting entranced. How will you remember him?

Man in the Mirror

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change

Heal the World

We Could Fly So High
Let Our Spirits Never Die
In My Heart
I Feel You Are All
My Brothers
Create A World With
No Fear
Together We’ll Cry
Happy Tears
See The Nations Turn
Their Swords
Into Plowshares

We Could Really Get There
If You Cared Enough
For The Living
Make A Little Space
To Make A Better Place…

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

Power of Love

February 19, 2009 at 8:42 PM (Inspirational, Music)

Do you have a song that you absolutely love and can lift you up no matter your mood? Tonight I was working on dissertation data and listening to music. My favorite song of all time started playing which inspired me to write this blog. That song is Power of Love by Luther Vandross. I’m a lyrics driven music lover and I absolutely love the lyrics of this song. The message of this song is extremely powerful and true.

It’s hard to put it in words. The song just moves and inspires me. I’ve posted a music video and the lyrics below. Coincidentally, Luther Vandross is one of my favorite artists of all time. Unfortunately, I became a huge fan after he passed away in 2005. I would love to have seen him in concert. Anyway, enough of me rambling. I hope you enjoy the song.

Power of Love

When I say goodbye it is never for long
‘Cause I know our love still lives on
It will be again exactly like it was
‘Cause I believe in the power of love

When you’re close I can feel the power
When it’s love I can always tell
Love for me is the best thing now
It’s something that I know so well

Hold me closer and every minute
Of every hour, feel the power of love, yeah
Hold me tighter and take me higher
And feel the fire of the power of love

Did you know that your feelings show
You thought your love was locked up inside
But when your senses start to overload
Love is something you should never hide

You’ve got to believe in love
It’s a feeling that’s next to none
Can’t stop until we are one
With the power of love

Tell everyone to try
I promise you’ll reach the sky
One thing that we can’t deny
Is the power of love

So close your eyes and you can feel it
Comin’ straight from above, it’s the power of love
You can’t deny it, so don’t even try it
Let the feelin’ sweep you off your feet

You’ve got to believe in love
It’s a feeling that’s next to none
Can’t stop until we are one
With the power of love

Tell everyone you see
How much better the world could be
For them and for you, for me
With the power of love

Ooh, ooh, ooh
My-my-my-my-my-my
You’ve got to feel the power
Yeah, yeah

So listen up and you will hear it
A symphony from above, it’s the power of love
So glad we’ve found it, now there’s no way around it
Just let the feeling sweep you off your feet

You’ve got to believe in love
It’s a feeling that’s next to none
Can’t stop until we are one
With the power of love

Tell everyone to try
I promise you’ll reach the sky
One thing that you can’t deny
Is the power of love

When we walk down the street
We don’t care who we see or who we meet
Don’t need to run, don’t need to hide
‘Cause we’ve got something burning inside, yeah

We’ve got love power
It’s the greatest power of them all, ooh…ooh…
We’ve got love power
And together we can’t fall, sing it with

We’ve got love (Love) power (Power)
It’s the greatest power of them all
Oh, we’ve got love (Love) power (Power)
And together we can’t fall, and all the good

(We’ve got love) Ooh, we’ve got
love (Power), yes, we do
(It’s the greatest power of them all)
(We’ve got love) Love-love-love (Power)
(And together we can’t fall) We’ll
never fall if we’ve got

(We’ve got love) If we’ve got love (Power)
(It’s the greatest power of them all)
(We’ve got love) Tell the world we
got love (Power) tell the people
about it
(And together we can’t fall) And it’s all
because we’ve got, we’ve got

We’ve got love (Love) power (Power)
Oh, it’s the greatest power of them
all and if you believe me
We’ve got more love (Love) power (Power)
And together we can’t fall, I know, can’t fall

We can’t fall (Love) when
there’s a love power (Power)
‘Cause it’s the greatest power of them all
