Love songs

Just because I can….

I’ll start with something Susan stumbled upon on. Jacques Brel, singing a heart-rending version of his own song, which roughly translates as “Don’t Leave Me”.

Ne Me Quitte Pas, Jacques Brel

I offer you pearls of rain coming from countries where it never rains. I will cross the world until after my death for to cover your body with gold and bright light. I will give you a kingdom where love will be king Where love will be the law And where you will be queen.

This is one of the most beautiful and simple of The Beatles’ songs:

And I Love Her, The Beatles

And if you’ve ever seen Brief Encounter, you’ll recognise this classic:

Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto, in C Minor, played by Evgeny Kissin with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Andrew Davis.
(Opening part of the second movement)

    Shazgood, thanks for the musix. Nice choices. Ashamed to say I’ve never seen Jaques Brel perform. Did they do lots of cocaine back then or was he just naturally intense? Wow.
