Joni Mitchell “Both Sides Now” with Brandi Carlile Live at Newport Folk ...

I have not stopped watching this beautiful video of Joni at Newport Folk--takes your breath away and the tears are just flowing.  To see Brandi as Joni begins to sing and she was floored as I am now.  The song lyrics really hit home! The song is PROFOUND!  I LOVE this version and the song is like a fine wine--just gets better with time.  

Rows and flows of angel hair--I've never had
but have dreamed of ice cream castles in the air
and what I would give to climb feather canyons everywhere
I've certainly looked at clouds that way for sure!
But like the song says now they only block the sun 
even though they may not rains and snow on everyone like before--no thanks to climate change!
and oh how so many things I would of done but cloud got in my way--and they seem more blackish these days.

Yeah, I've looked at clouds from both sides now, from up and down and still somehow
it's cloud illusions I recall and I really don't know clouds at all.

Moons and Junes and ferris wheels, the dizzy dancing way that I feel and 
as for me the fairy tale never became real and I have given myself away over and over.

And as for low well I've looked at love from both sides now, from give and take
and still somehow it's love's illusions that I recall for I really don't know love,
I really don't know love at all.

Tears (so many) and endless fears and not feeling proud to have never said, "I love you"
right out loud.  Just dreams and schemes and lots of circus crowds.
I've looked at life that way for sure!

And now even old friends well they're acting strange, they shake their heads and
they tell me that I've changed and something's lost.  An understatement for sure!
Yet there is something gained in living every day.

O, yes I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose (lots of lose) and still somehow 
It's life's illusions I recall--lately life seems to be full of illusions and 
I really don't know life at all, I really don't know life at all!

Keith Urban - Blue Ain't Your Color (Official Music Video)

Blue is one of my fave colors 

but like Keith sings ...

I look like I haven't felt the fire and haven't had a little fun 
hadn't had a smile in a little while.  Blue doesn't match my eyes 
and all I see is black and while.  I need someone to come and
paint me brighter. I want to see the sky look true blue

Natalia Lafourcade - Tú sí sabes quererme (en manos de Los Macorinos)

As one commentator puts it....

Esto si es música, esto si es tierra, esto si es latinoamericano

and I would love to have such music playing in my house with friends and invited family!

Ornella Vanoni - L'Appuntamento

Despite the song being sung in Italian--I cannot get enough of this version which has been on repeat mode at home, work and iPhone.  Other versions exist and Andrea Bocelli has a nice version.  The song brings back wonderful memories of my trips to Italy of which I always long to return y siempre es un sueno de esperanza.

Famous Foxy

It’s always nice when an old friend you haven’t seen in a while stops by! I've falling in love with this fox and the banjo player!

Miedo ft. Natalia Lafourcade with Pepe Aguilar (MTV Unplugged) [En Vivo]

My poor blog--been a long time.  Where has time gone?   Lo que puedo decir es que siempre pensando en ti! Busco el momento para encontrate frente en frente y mirar tus ojos que siempre me miraban con tanto amor.  Me dan ganas de tirar me ego por la ventana pero tengo miedo.  Recuerdo ese foto de nosotros en la boda de unos amigos--era mi favorito de nostros.
