One lovely heartfelt song by the gifted "Gerry and The Pacemakers." Their melodies, always so lovely, the lyrics, sweet and delightful. A "tip of the hat" to a special kind of music and also for the tasteful video. I hate to see lovely things ruined by prurient or salacious videos when it is not the intent and only thrown in hither and yon just to bump up ratings for people who like that sort of thing. I WILL REPEAT WHAT I HAVE BEGUN TO PUT ON COMMENTS THAT I KNOW WILL CAUSE CERTAIN TYPES OF PEOPLE TO TRY TO MAKE RUDE, CRUDE, UGLY REMARKS BACK. THIS IS MY OPINION. IF YOU HAVE AN OPINION ON THIS SONG, ANY SONG, THEN PUT IT ON YOURS AND LEAVE MINE ALONE. THANK YOU.
I love that, again, Chris Rea has written another song for his other daughter, Julia. We know he did the same with Josephine. Such beautiful songs and what a tribute to the love he feels for his daughters. Of course, they are both grown now, but I delight, as I know they all must, in looking at footage from their childhoods. Classic, beautiful, soulful Chris Rea. An amazing talent and an amazing man. Thank you for this post.
Thank you so much. My favorite version of this song is back. I had not found it in ages. This is a forever favorite of mine and, truly, this was the best version I ever found. I don't know where it went or how I could possibly have overlooked it, but thank you ever, ever so much for putting this up. Thank you for this marvelous post of a classic Motown sound.
I have always heard John Lennon did not know the meaning of "oh bowkawaka pousse," that it came in a dream. One meaning, of a number of meanings, for pousse' is "growth" which would surely be in keeping with his capabilities and something I feel he would believe in as in the sense of spiritual or personal growth. No matter, this is beautiful. It is one of the lovliest of his songs. To me this isn't so much psychedelic as it is precisely as he titled it - a dream!!! Intense and extraordinarily lovely. Thank you for this post.
My favorite version of I Can Hear Your Heartbeat. He did another version with a completely different sound; another testament to his vast musical ability. This is the more "upbeat" take on it. Just fantastic.
The first song I heard by Chris Rea. Since that time so many years ago, I have followed this uber talented genius. I am familiar with hundreds of his songs and have virtually every one. I never tire of them. He is prolific, he is profound. He is a one in a lifetime talent. Every song is truly HIS song. He does it all, always has and that is remarkable. I could go on forever on this man's talent but his songs speak for themselves, each and everyone!!!! Thank you for this post.
+Mike Decker So right, he is, no other word will do, amazing. People just do not normally have so much talent. Every song, every note, his own. I saw an interview, or have read, that he said he has songs in his mind all the time. He awakens with them. I cannot imagine such creativity, but I am grateful he has it and I, among many others, have been the recipient of all that genius; the pleasure of listening to all the varied and wondrous songs by Chris Rea. Thank you for commenting.
I am pretty positive I have put this song up before. I love it and it came to mind this evening; a delightful song I heard in a Lowe's (hardware) store some months ago. I had never heard it , caught some of the lyrics, retained them, got home, found it and...here it is AGAIN!!
