Wouldn’t it be nice?

Wouldn’t it be nice if we were older?

Then we wouldn’t have to wait so long

And wouldn’t it be nice to live together

In the kind of world where we belong?

You know it’s gonna make it that much better

When we can say goodnight and stay together

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could wake up

In the morning when the day is new?

After having spent the day together

Hold each other close the whole night through

But happy times together we’ve been spending

I wish that every kiss was never-ending

Oh, wouldn’t it be nice?

Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray, it might come true…

Melody Gardot & Sting; Little Something

We could be a little something
I’ll be everything you wanted
I could bring you real comfort
Give you a break from loving
I’m trying more than just a little
I wanna meet you in the middle
Reading you is like a riddle
I really wanna figure you out

Don’t you worry what you’re gonna lose
In the heat of the moment
We’re rushing into something new
But we’re keeping it focused

Don’t call me lover
Stop thinking ’bout it, thinking ’bout it
I’m not the others
We could keep it simple as
La di da di da
We could keep it simple as
Don’t call me lover
Stop thinking ’bout it, thinking ’bout it

U2 – Live Aid; Fourteen Year-Old Reaction. Her face says it all!

Another post for my dear, sweet sister Lisa — lover of all things U2!


Picture a place where it all doesn’t hurt
Where everything’s safe and it doesn’t get worse
Oh my
We see through bloodshot eyes

Picture a place, somewhere else far away
Where you know what they mean and they mean what they say
To us
And would that be enough?

Are we runnin’ out of time?
Are we hidin’ from the light?
Are we just too scared to fight
For what we want tonight?

Eric Clapton; Layla (Live at Royal Albert Hall, 1991, Orchestral Version)

I’ve heard many versions of this classic song — including the pathetic (imho) unplugged version — this is arguably the best version ever!

Thinking Out Loud

When your legs don’t work like they used to before
And I can’t sweep you off of your feet
Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love
Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks
And darling I will be loving you ’til we’re 70
And baby my heart could still fall as hard at 23
And I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand
Oh me I fall in love with you every single day
And I just wanna tell you I am…

U2: ’Songs of Surrender’ & Reflecting on their Musical Legacy

Every U2 post is a love note to my sister Lisa who loved U2 long before I did and took me to see them again for my 60th birthday. I curate them here because she doesn’t have the time to find good U2 content like I do…

No More Lonely Nights

Only true Paul McCartney fans will know this obscure, sweet song. I guess that makes me a true fan…

Jug of Punch

I sang this song to me boyos as a ‘lullaby’ when they were young. My favorite verse is “What more diversion can a man desire that to sit him down by a snug, turf fire? On his knee a pretty wench aye and on the table a jug of punch”.

My other favorite…

Steve Winwood’s ‘Higher Love’: “A modern hymn”

The lyrics of Winwood’s classic hit read like a dissertation on the divine. Click the link to read the original article: Steve Winwood’s ‘Higher Love’: “A modern hymn”

The Reason I’m Single via @maryspender

I’ve got no love for Miley Cyrus but I could listen to Mary Spender sing me the phone book!

The Heart Of The Matter

I got the call today, I didn’t wanna hear

But I knew that it would come

An old true friend of ours was talkin’ on the phone

She said you found someone

And I thought of all the bad luck

And the struggles we went through

And how I lost me

And you lost you

What are these voices outside love’s open door

Make us throw off our contentment

And beg for something more?

But I’m learning to live without you now

But I miss you sometimes

The more I know, the less I understand

All the things I thought I knew

I’m learning again
