THE Perfect song!

Okay this thread is dedicated to 'The perfect song'. What I mean is if you could only hear ONE song just before you left this Earth, THIS would be the song. It could be for whatever reason. It reminds you of that special someone, it's the best tune ever. It's a song that makes you cry. The harmony is so perfect it's beyond belief. Well you get the picture...

There is a motown song...regretably I can't remember the name of it. But part of the chorus is, "Goodnight Sweetheart". That is the one song I would want to hear. There's nothing particularly special about it as far as lyrics, tune or melody, but when my husband and I were dating he would sing it to me as we cuddled in the car right before I'd have to go in. Ever since its had a special place in my heart and never fails to make me feel all mushy and floaty.

I found all the lyrics for you:

 

GOODNIGHT, SWEETHEART

 

Goodnight, sweetheart,

Well,it's time to go.

Goodnight, sweetheart.

Well, it's time to go.

I hate to leave you, but I really must say

Goodnight, sweetheart, goodnight.

 

Well it's three o'clock in the mornin'

Baby, I just can't get right.

Well, I hate to leave you, baby,

I don't mean maybe,

Because I love you so.

 

Goodnight, sweetheart,

Well, it's time to go.

Goodnight, sweetheart,

Well, it's time to go.

I hate to leave you, but I really must say

Goodnight, sweetheart, goodnight.

 

Mother, and, oh, your father

Won't like it if we stay out too late.

Well, I hate to leave you, baby,

Don't mean maybe,

You know I hate to go.

 

Goodnight, sweetheart,

Well, it's time to go.

Goodnight, sweetheart,

Well, it's time to go.

I hate to leave you, but I really must say -

Goodnight, sweetheart, goodnight.

I dunno my perfect song...

 

 

thought I did... but I dunno... this song makes me sad in a peaceful way...

 

Shame

what we learned here is love tastes bitter when it’s gone

past yourself forget the light, things look dirty when it’s on

funny how it comes to pass, that all the good slips away

and there’s no one around you can remember being good to you

 

(chorus 1) shame, shouldn’t try you, couldn’t step by you

and open up more

shame, shame, shame

 

what we lost here is something better left alone

second steps have been forgotten, will you tell me how they go

set yourself, situate, like a fool try again

there’s no one around you can remember being good, for you so

 

(chorus 2) shame, shouldn’t try you, couldn’t step by you,

and open up more

shame, shame, shame shame,

shouldn’t try you, couldn’t step by you

and open up more

shame, shame, shame we never thought we’d get so troubled

we could never think that much

it should never get this bad

 

so let the wind blow ya, across a big floor

but there’s no one around who can tell us what we’re here for

funny in a certain light, how we all look the same

and there’s no one in life you can remember ever stood for you, so

Come ride with me

Through the veins of history

I'll show you how god

Falls asleep on the job

 

And how can we win

When fools can be kings

Don't waste your time

Or time will waste you

 

No one's gonna take me alive

The time has come to make things right

You and I must fight for our rights

You and I must fight to survive

 

No one's gonna take me alive

The time has come to make things right

You and I must fight for our rights

You and I must fight to survive

 

No one's gonna take me alive

The time has come to make things right

You and I must fight for our rights

You and I must fight to survive

 

No one's gonna take me alive

The time has come to make things right

You and I must fight for our rights

You and I must fight to survive

"The City Of New Orleans" or "Alice's Restaurant" by Arlo Guthrie, "Goodnight Moon" by Shivaree, "Only In Dreams" by Weezer,

 

or...

 

If some Genie said I had to listen to this song before I died but I wouldn't die until it finished, I'd pick As Slow As Possible composed by John Cage as currently interpreted in Halberstadt, Germany.
