Last Song You Listened To

Simple - state the last song you listened to and artist.

Mine isn't exactly a song but a piece of music. Theme From a Summer Place - the Percy Faith Orchestra. From 1960. A lovely piece of music in my opinion.

I've been playing Elaine Paige songs quite a lot recently, since going to see her in concert a few weeks ago. The last song I listened to (yesterday) was "Memory," which has been a favourite of mine for years. The concert was super. Elaine was celebrating forty years on the stage and sang songs from a number of shows including "Don't Cry for Me Argentina," "I Know Him So Well" and "I Don't Know How to Love Him." The highlight of the evening was "Memory" - it was sublime and literally sent shivers down my spine. What a voice!

The last song I listened to was 'Open a New Window' from the original Broadway production 'Mame' sung by Angela Lansbury :D
'Oh voice of Spring of Youth
hearts mad delight,
Sing on, sing on, and when the sun is gone
I'll warm me with your echoes
through the night.'

Walking On Air - The Bee Gees.

From what turned out to be their last proper Bee Gees album (due to Maurice's death), This is Just Where I Came In, released in 2001, the year I became a fan. Ah, the memories...falling in love with their music, going with my Mum to buy the album...

Daylight by Matt and Kim

Although the song I have firmly stuck in my head at the moment is actually a Tamil song from a youtube clip that has been doing the rounds. If interesting, just go to youtube and look up "crazy Indian video buffalaxed" or "loony bun Benny Lava". It is great! :lol:

Heard Classical Gas, today. What a brilliant one that is. If only I had my imaginary guitar :lol:

In For the Kill by La Roux. I rarely listen to modern music but my daughter is doing her best to bring me up to date! :lol: Actually I quite like In For the Kill. It reminds me of some of the songs Eurythmics sang in the 1980s.

I wonder if 'In For the Kill' by La Roux will still be being listened to in twenty years time, though!! :wink:
