To bring the blood pressure down and calm the soul...




"The Promise" (Secret Garden)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqxbZq7d86Q

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1



"Illumination" (Secret Garden)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XB97k312nDw&t=59s

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1



"Appassionata" (Secret Garden)
A little melancholy but so lovely. A commenter wrote: Like a single rose can fill a garden so can the tender innocence of a single song light up the deep chambers of the soul. It begs of mystery, for us to follow in its beautiful footsteps.

While we're doing soundtracks...





"Cinderella Liberty" (Ken Shima)

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

With lyrics (by Paul Williams) - "Nice to be Around" (Helen Reddy)

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1





"Summer of '42" (Michel Legrand)

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

With lyrics (by Marilyn and Alan Bergman) - "The Summer Knows" (Barbra Streisand)

Thanks for sharing all of that and "Cinderella Liberty", I do remember having seen that movie.

"On the street where you live", I heard that song and immediately took to it. There is even a smashing modern version... most of the whole soundtrack of "My Fair Lady" is great.

Vic Damone - On The Street Where You Live

"I could have danced all night",  another very fine song from that play.

JAMAICA FAREWELL by The Brothers Four

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

...
I took a trip on a sailing ship
And when I reached Jamaica I made a stop

But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
Won't be back for many a day
My heart is down, my head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town

Great stuff...

A bit of Italy.

Ricchi e Poveri must mean something like Rich and Poor. 

Che sarà - Ricchi & Poveri

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

La Banda della Musica - Ciao Amici

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1
Lyrics

Some comments in Polish, this is a type of widely popular music not just to Italy, posted here before and I keep coming back to it. Fun song and of course, Italian is a bit like Spanish, so one can pretty much tell what they are sing.  Well, at least, some of the words.....
