you ain’t seen nothin’ like me yet

This morning I visit my friend Frank@A Frank Angle and his musical “Life” and act 12 is about Love. As a visitor, you have can add a YouTube video to your choice of song on the topic. And for me there is only one song, even of most of my favorite songs is about love.

and I got the urge to re-blog this post again, because it’s such a great song. I still listen to this track everyday.

So here you have – for me – the biggest love song of them all.

************

This is the ultimate love song for me. It came to me for about 2 years ago when I was looking around on YouTube – found a this video with Bryan Ferry, once the sexiest man on earth in my eyes nearly 30 years ago, when “Let’s Stick Together” drove my neighbors mad. He still have his sexy voice just love it. He would have to ask twice. His version up to today is my absolute recorded favorite – please take your time to listen to it. My music cloud you can stop in the end of this page.

Adele has made her version that has became a massive hit all over the world, but I don’t like her version, that makes two of us – Simon Cowell are not a fan neither. At least I’m in good company and very knowledge too.

X-factor UK 2010’s runner up – Rebecca Ferguson sang it on the show and  probably the best version so far, but she hasn’t recorded it yet.

The song is written by Bob Dylan and it appeared on his 1997 album “Time Out of Mind”. Many covers have been made – it also was featured on the soundtrack of the 1998 film “Hope Floats”, directed by Forest Whitaker and sang by Garth Brooks.

Wasn’t able to get the Bryan Ferry’s version on “SoundCloud” – but I found this which I think is a fantastic version, a bit unclear who sings – not stated. Somebody has guessed that it’s Kris Allen – never heard about him, but found a video with him  singing the song on YouTube and I’m now sure it’s him – it’s the same track. An absolutely stunning version. Have fallen even more in love with this song now.

I have none what so ever romantic memories with song and I play at least once per day. Sometimes can I play it for hours all over. I think it’s a great to have a favorite love song that isn’t connected with a special man, that brings bittersweet memories – just a song that makes me complete and makes me feel good in body, heart and soul. Isn’t a love song when we love it ?????!!!!

“Make You Feel My Love”
Bob Dylan

When the rain is blowin‘ in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love.

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love.

I know you haven’t made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I’ve known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong.

I’d go hungry, I’d go black and blue
I’d go crawlin‘ down the avenue
No, there’s nothin‘ that I wouldn’t do
To make you feel my love.

Though storms are raging on the rollin‘ sea
And on the highway of regrets
Though winds of change are throwing wild and free
You ain’t seen nothin‘ like me yet.

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn’t do
Go to the ends of the Earth for you
To make you feel my love.

  1. Viveka, that music makes me all goose bumpy. Reminds me of dancing slow when I was a kid and how gooey and romantic we were at that age. Life changes but music can take you back there in a minute. Very nice.

    • Thanks Carl, I think it’s fantastic song … like Simon Cowell I can’t really stand Adele – Rebecca did the best ever version – but not recorded so second best work wonder with me – Mr Ferry. I love the song in any version … just mad about it and the best of all I don’t have any bittersweet memories with it.

    • Yes, it’s a such a fantastic song … not a Dylan fan, but he got that right .. I just just love Bryan Ferry’s version .. but I listen to this song in any shape and form .. at least once per day. Don’t like Adele!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. What a lovely reblog this cloudy morning, Vivi 🙂 I was confused at first because Ferry was singing in the background, but the newer version is an absolute beauty. Thanks for sharing. Have a happy day! 🙂

    • Good Morning, no Ferry has never sung in the background – his version is not on Soundcloud, it has always been this track as background ….. who cares because the background version is so beautiful too. You have a good day too. Going to visit friends over the weekend.

  3. Beautiful, beautiful, Viveka! And – today I got a Christmas present in advance! With more beautiful music. I guess you are Santa this time, my friend – BIG hugs and thank you soooo much!
