I love you, for sentimental reasons

I love you, for sentimental reasons

How much do you know about Nat King Cole? He was a rare gem in the music industry in the last century. Having so many popular and beautiful hit songs, this one song (I Love You) for Sentimental Reasons remains my all time favourite.

He was, however, not the first performer of this song, written in 1940 but published in 1945. William Best from The Brown Dots was credited for composing and writing the music and lyrics, originally titled as For Sentimental Reasons. It is no doubt safe to say that Cole popularised this it and helped peak the song on Billboard in 1946. 

This is a rare footage of Cole himself playing the piano singing this rendition, making the song even more effortlessly beautiful:

 

 
"I'll think of you every morning"
"Darling I'm never lonely"
"Whenever you are in sight"

 

"Dream of you every night"  

 

"I love you for sentimental reasons"

Would you lie with me and just forget the world

Would you lie with me and just forget the world

Song of March 23, 2017

 

Song Title: Chasing Cars

Perfomer: Sleeping at Last 

I have often been a big fan of Sleeping at Last after watching the movie Twilight when one of his songs, Turning Page, was featured. 

A pleasant YouTube search has fatefully led me to this rendition of Chasing Cars (originally written and performed by Snow Patrol) and I have since fallen in love with the melody and the lyrics. A little Google search told me this song was a big hit in the UK almost a decade ago. (Hm, where have I been?) Many of the leading artists including Ed Sheeran also sang cover version. It could have been love at first sight/hearing. The dreamy voice of Sleeping at Last will probably be my all time favourite.

There is also an interesting background story about how Snow Patrol composed this song and naming it. Perhaps you can do your own little research and find out!

In the meantime, enjoy the song and the lyrics.

 
 
We'll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don't need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

Let's waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all that I can see

I don't know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
 
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
