5 Quick Takes Sunday - Vol 8

Ok, i was going to schedule this post for Saturday before i left for my friend's house on Friday, but i had other stuff i needed to do then. So i'm doing it now! I'm theme-ing it this week and posting all the songs I've fallen in love with the past two days. =)


Wuthering Heights, by Hayley Westenra. I actually wouldn't say that i've fallen in love with this song, but i do like it. Hayley sings it on her CD "Pure", which i just picked up from the library on Thursday. It's kind of a cool song, based on the book "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte. (If you are curious, yes, after hearing this song, i did pick up Wuthering Heights" to read it again. Can't stand that book.)


My Heart Belongs to You, by Hayley Westenra, from her CD "Odyssey". This song is gorgeous! The melody is awesome, the lyrics are beautiful and her voice is lovely. Added it to my list of must-play songs for my wedding reception.


My Heart Will Go On, by Celine Dion from the movie Titanic. Okay, i cofesses that i just listened to this song for the first time on Thursday! I've heard of it before, of course, but i'd never heard it. Then for whatever reason, i looked it up on YouTube and now i can't believe i've never done it before!

He Lives in You from The Lion King. This song is in the Broadway show (which i haven't seen) as well as in Lion King: Simba's Pride, which i have seen once a long time ago after it just came out. I recently heard it again twice this past week, the first time when my forum "daughter" posted it on one of the threads, and again yesterday at my friend's house. And seeing as i love The Lion King and this is a rather religous song, how could i not fall in love with it? (Thus annoying Yavi who doesn't understand my obsession with Lion King. She should be used to it, its been going on since i was 5!)

Have a wonderful day!!!!


  1. Re: Wuthering Heights... it's neat to see that the song is still around! It was written by Kate Bush and originally came out on her debut album in '78. It's been a favourite of our family's since my daddy heard it on Pat Benatar's album in the 80's (bought the album just for that song, in fact).

    The Westenra version is really pretty, but the Benatar version is my favourite. It has an 'edge' that sends shivers up my spine. She was trained classically before she went to rock, so she has a lot of power in her voice and she hits that high note dead on.

    You can listen here if you're interested.
