Hummingbird

August 1, 2008

This is for Wendy. She made me think of this song today. For the rest of you, this is one of my very favorite all time songs. I used to listen to it all the time as a child, and even found a copy of a Seals and Crofts album as an adult and wore this track out. It makes me cry  – but in a good way – every time I hear this song.

What song is your favorite that pulls at your heart strings any time you hear it?

    That was so beautiful! I forgot about this song, thank you so much for posting this wonderful video! It was lovely. And I adored all those little hummingbirds around the person’s hands at the end. How sweet they are. And the song is so perfect, so hummingbird-like.

    For me, the song that tugs at my heart strings and actually makes me cry is House At Pooh Corner by Loggins & Messina. When I hear them sing “…But today I have wandered much further than I should, and I can’t seem to find my way back to the wood…” I start sobbing.

    Hey, this should be the start of a meme! I’ll post House At Pooh Corner and give you the credit of course. What should we call this meme? “The Song That Makes You Cry” ?

    Let’s tag Joan, Dragonfly, Moonbeam, and… who else do you think will do it?

    Buck will absolutely puke when he sees I’ve posted my crying song. 🙂

    Yes, Yes! Do it. Call it “Insight to my heart” or something like that. “Meme, My Heart” or… I’m listening to that song now because I forgot about that one. We truly are kindred spirits, you and I.

    Yes, we are kindred spirits. Okay, let’s call it “Insight to my heart”!

    Okay, I’m gonna hit post in a few minutes.

    That’s a hard one.. I love music so I have songs playing in my head all the time.. btw. I love hummingbirds thanks. To be more specific.. anything from Alanis Morisette, the Glen Hansard, Jill Scott, and Sinead Oconnor’s “The Healing Room”.:D

    Cici – there’s an Alanis Morisette song that I’ve always loved, and now I can’t remember the name of it. Hmm. I’ll have to look it up. The words were especially meaningful to me as I was getting divorced this last time.

    I’d totally forgotten that song. It was so nice to hear again and the hummingbirds were so beautiful I have a hummingbird this summer at my hummingbird feeder. I’ve seen him a couple of times. I am so on this meme. But I am having a terrible time picking a song. I think of one and then I remember another and I want to post about 100 of them. So it may take me a day or two to decide.

    Great idea you and Wendy to make it a meme.

    The meme idea goes all to Wendy. I think of blog posts, but I never think to make it a meme. She’s clever that way, you know.

    This is a very pretty song. I don’t think I’ve heard it in a long time. Thank you
