I Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore
This week I cover “I Love You Just The Way You Are.” This Billy Joel tune was suggested by my beautiful wife.
This week’s cover tune comes from Disney’s Tarzan. Many years ago when our oldest was graduating from 5th grade, her teacher asked if I would put a couple of songs together with the students singing. All the specials (art, music, and gym) had already been eliminated from the curriculum. I volunteered and the kids did a great job. I originally learned this on keyboard and didn’t realize how many modulations were in this. Enjoy.
Today’s choice is Summer Breeze
This Thursday I cover “Bridge Over Covered Water.”
Today, I cover a country song, It’s America. I’ve sung it during our Memorial Day parades and we did it as part of our Memorial Day service on Monday.
Songwriter Kerry Livgren echoes some of Solomon’s words in Ecclesiastes. Solomon writes, “Meaningless, everything is utterly meaningless.” This is a song that started as a finger picking exercise for Livgren, when his wife suggested he come up with lyrics. Dust in the Wind went on to be a major hit for the band Kansas, which is one of my musical influences.
