I recently discovered that I can download mp3 versions of some of my favorite old, old songs and listen to them wherever I like on my Sony Zen Stone.
So...I know I'm really dating myself, but here are two of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard...
"Marieke," by Jacques Brel
Unfortunately, my number 2 song, "The Last Time I Saw Her Face" by Gordon Lightfoot, doesn't seem to be available on YouTube sung by its creator. (Glen Campbell's interpretation is OK, but just not the same). So here's another Lightfoot song that ties for 2nd place, "Softly..."
Alas, as the Québécois song writer Michel Rivard sings:
Je n'aime pas la nostalgie
C'est une maîtresse inassouvie
aux yeux trop bleus.
