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.
Choir 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 Love, I’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.
