Today it’s supposed to be a very windy day so I hope I don’t lose any roof shingles but, I have to admit, I love wind....not when someone breaks wind, mind you, especially my dog Harley...Peeeeeeuuuuu. Last week, Denise mentioned The Wayward Wind Sung by Gogi Grant and I totally forgot about that beautiful song so I decided to go for the windy theme.
1. THE WAYWARD WIND SUNG BY GOGI GRANT-1955
As I said before, I really love this song. I find it dreamlike and ethereal for some reason. This song was written by Stanley Lebowsky with lyrics by Herb Newman. I had forgotten about this song until Denise mentioned it last week. So, thanks Denise and...by the way, what did you make for Thanksgiving?
2. THEY CALL THE WIND MARIAH SUNG BY VAUGHAN MONROE-1951
This comes from the Lerner & Loewe musical, “Paint Your Wagon” which I first heard when I watched the movie version starring Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood...yes...these 2 in a musical. This was my favourite song from this musical sung by Harve Presnell in the film version. Apparently, it became very popular with the soldiers during the Korean War. I never knew that.
3. DUST IN THE WIND SUNG BY KANSAS-1977
Yeah, so this is about death but, hey, I still find it a beautiful song that was written by Kerry Livgren from Kansas.
So what windy songs come into you head?
