I love old song remakes


Very few songs are good enough to be re-released and STILL be JUST as powerful as they were the first time through..........the words have to be pretty powerful AND it takes someone phenomenal to match that first "classic" version.
Tonight - I give to you Foreigner's "I wanna know what love is" performed by Mariah Carey!  Good Lord she is phenomenal......that girl can SING!!!!  And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the piano in the beginning!  Mmmmm - what a great wedding song  ;-)
I'm also posting the lyrics after the video - READ them - good stuff!!!!

PS - after you listen to this - you might get the urge to get on YouTube and look up some old Foreigner.  Wheeeew - I LOVE me some old school 80's rock/ballads!!!  "I've been waiting for a girl like you"; "Hot Blooded"; "Jukebox Hero"; "Urgent"  - check out those hair do's!!!  LOL



Lyrics:
I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I'm colder

In my life theres been heartache and pain
I dont know if I can face it again
Cant stop now, Ive traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I'm gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me
I've got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
I can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
And I wanna feel, I want to feel what love is
And I know, I know you can show me

That's SO totally cool!
There is nothing that makes me smile more than posting a blog that I know someone was touched by or related to - or just smiled because of!
thanks for letting me know!!!
(and I'm glad to know another female out there loves UFC - my girlfriends think I have lost it! ha)

When you really listen to the words, it speaks volumes. And hits home.

Matty - I'm such a sucker for good lyrics. Don't get me wrong - I love a good beat and something that makes my booty shake - but so many people miss the lyrics. LOVE the words in this song!

Erin - YAY - welcome! =)

Dearest Crib - I'm checking your blog right now! I need all the help I can get (big smile) THANKS!
