my music moods (heartache)

“This is a good sign, having a broken heart.
It means we have tried for something.”
Elizabeth Gilbert

… you that knows me … know that music is important as air and water for … forgot friendship. Every day do I listen to my favourites that suits my mood. I thought I should start a new section where I will introduce my favourites to you, 3 track per mood.

I will start with worst mood to be in …. heartache. It’s quite many years since I suffer from it but I can still remember how much it hurt and what music I listen too, that always made the situation a lot worst.

  • “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'” is a song written by Phil Spector, Barry Mann, and Cynthia Weil. It was first recorded by the Righteous Brothers in 1964, produced by Phil Spector. The original Righteous Brothers version was a critical and commercial success on its release, becoming a number-one hit single in both the United States and the United Kingdom in February 1965. It was the fifth best selling song of 1965 in the US.
  • The Righteous Brothers were originally an American musical duo of Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield.
  • It has also been described by various music writers as “one of the best records ever made” and “the ultimate pop record”.
  • Who doesn’t remember that “Top Gun” scene with Tom Cruise singing for Kelly McGillis in the bar?  “Top Gun” was the highest grossing film of 1986. Its soundtrack is one of the most popular soundtracks to date and “Take My Breath Away” won the Academy Award for Best Original Song.

“You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips
And there’s no tenderness like before in your fingertips
You’re trying hard not to show it
But baby, baby I know it”

  • “Anyone Who Had a Heart” is a song written by Burt Bacharach (music) and Hal David (lyrics) for Dionne Warwick in 1963. A scout for English record producer George Martin discovered “Anyone Who Had a Heart” when Warwick’s version took off in the United States, suggesting to Martin that the song would be a strong UK single for Shirley Bassey. However, Martin saw the song as a vehicle for Cilla Black. Cillas’ single of “Anyone Who Had a Heart” debuted at no. 28 on the UK Top 50 dated February 8, 1964. 2 weeks later had it reach to #1 and kept that position for 3 weeks.
  • It became the biggest selling single of the ’60s by a female artist
  • Black died on 1 August 2015 after a fall in her villa in Estepona. The day after her funeral, the compilation album The Very Best of Cilla Black went to number one on the UK Albums Chart and the New Zealand Albums Chart; it was her first number one album.

“Knowing I love you so
Anyone who had a heart
Would take me in his arms and love me, too
You couldn’t really have a heart and hurt me”

  • “Sometimes When We Touch” is a 1977 ballad written by Dan Hill (lyrics) and Barry Mann (music) on the album Longer Fuse and also released that year as a single. It was Hill’s biggest hit, peaking at #3 on the United States Billboard Hot 100 and #10 on the Adult Contemporary chart. Tina Turner recorded a version for her 1978 album, Rough.
  • An Estonian language version of the song (entitled “Puudutus”) also exists. Often performed as a duet, the song has been covered by Koit Toome and Maarja-Liis Ilus among others.

“And sometimes when we touch
The honesty’s too much
And I have to close my eyes
And hide
I want to hold you till I die
Till we both break down and cry
I want to hold you till the fear in me subsides”

It looks like I must have been suffering from most heartaches during the ’60s and ’70s… but I think it’s because in the age of 20-30 was when my heart was most vulnerable.

Thanks to Wikipedia …. for all the facts, couldn’t done with you!!!!
