I used to be crazy over Carole King's Tapestry music when I was in my teens. I don't know why. But I do know I loved to listen to her sing.
And when she teamed up with Celine Dion, Gloria Estefan & Shania Twain and did this song, titled "You've Got A Friend"; I knew I had to rush out to get her CD for it. Now they had it all on Youtube.
Now, years later, older and probably wiser *I hope*, its her voice I long to hear. Its rare these days to hear anyone sing from their lungs anymore. Every new age singer is singing out from their throats. :(
I missed old songs. I really do. So you will probably see me tuning to FM90.5 on Singapore waves where they had old tunes from past. My girls grew up listening to the songs I listened to. Natasha went into Choir in high school and loved to watch Musicals where the singers sung from their lungs. Its beautiful to hear the inner voice she used to say.
One of my all time favourite musical was "Sunrise Sunset" in the musical "Fiddler on the Roof". I realised that my dad had the same tastes too. More like a chip of the old block, and passing it down to my girls.
I hope my girls will pass this on to theirs and theirs too...
Enjoy the music!
