Sunday Song: She Sings

I’m a musical gal, from my wee days taking piano and drum lessons, to my current stint in a community choir. Listening to music is what going to church is for some, so I celebrate with Sunday Song, a new series here at Daisy Smiley Face. Each week, I post a song that’s been my earworm for the week or something that reflects what’s happening in my world. Today: She Sings.

sunday songChoir started up again this week after almost a month away. I missed making harmonies with my singing sisters and brothers, and I missed singing with other people rather than all by my lonesome. Our director gave us music for 15 songs — we probably won’t sing all of them at our Spring concert, but most. He picked some real winners. There are traditional choir songs, but also The Glory of LoveI’ll Be There (for which I volunteered to be Tito Jackson, since I can’t be Mariah Carey), I’m a Believer (the Monkees song… did you know that was written by Neil Diamond?), a Scottish folk song, a song by Wolfie Mozart, and more. Me likee!

One of the songs we rehearsed on our first night back was She Sings, which I had never heard — another new-to-me undiscovered tune I’ve learned through this choir. We ran through it part by part (soprano, alto, tenor/bass), bit by bit, then ran through it a couple times from beginning to end. It’s a simple song, but a lovely one. I like it because the harmonies are so pretty (I sing Alto, the part that goes She sings la la la la la la la la la). I also can see the girl in the song as clear as the warm summer day in which she lies with hair open like a fan… (maybe she’s a little like me?).

I hope you, too, enjoy She Sings by Amy F. Bernon (sung by professionals… how pretty they make this sound!)

She cries for those who have never loved and for those who never sing…


Sunday Song is a new series here at DaisySmileyFace.com (check out all we do here). I post a song that’s been my earworm for the week, or something that reflects what’s happening in my world. Feel free to join in by posting in the comments below a video link and some thoughts about it — the only “theme” is that it’s a song you’re enjoying or that means something to you this week.

just jot it januaryIn addition to being the inaugural post in my Sunday Song series, this post is part of Linda G. Hill’s Just Jot It January. Today’s prompt, undiscovered, was suggested by The Haunted Wordsmith.

Read my previous post based on the prompt/word I suggested here: Memento and more.

  1. What a pretty song indeed! A perfect “choir” song.
    And yeah, Neil Diamond wrote many a tune sung by others.
    You’ll be singing Wolfie, too? Which one? Inquiring minds want to know.

  2. Lovely songs, we sang in the choir I used to go some of the songs you sing now. I didn’t know ‘She sings’ either.
    However funny you sing Donna nobis pacem, as a child while helping my mum drying dishes after dinner we always sang and she taught us this song. A little different and we – with my sister – sang it as canon. Only recently ( after Christmas I tried it with my mum again and she remembered, she is 92 now and we sang it again together. It was rather lovely and emotional. I love that song. You got a good choir going.

    1. Thanks, Ute! Aw, that’s such a nice story about Dona Nobis Pacem! I’m so happy you and your mother got to sing it together again!

      I’m happy to hear you say that — I think it’s a good choir, too! 🙂

      Thank you for sharing a personal thought/story about the song I posted, another fun thing about posting this series — one that I didn’t think of!
