Song of the Day

“More Than A Woman” (1977) by The Bee Gees.

“More Than a Woman” is a song by the Bee Gees, written by Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb for the soundtrack to the film Saturday Night Fever.

The soundtrack includes two versions — one by the Bee Gees and the other by Tavares. (From Wikipedia.com)

I like both versions of the song, I like The Bee Gees version better.
For your listening and sing pleasure.

More Than A Woman

By The Bee Gees

Girl, I’ve known you very well

I’ve seen you growing every day

I never really looked before

But now you take my breath away
Suddenly you’re in my life

A part of everything I do

You got me workin’ day and night

Just tryin’ to keep a hold on you
Here in your arms I found my paradise

My only chance for happiness

And if I lose you now, I think I would die

Say you’ll always be my baby

We can make it shine

We can take forever just a minute at a time
More than a woman

More than a woman to me

More than a woman

More than a woman to me
There are stories old and true

Of people so in love like you and me

And I can see myself

Let history repeat itself
Reflecting how I feel for you

And thinking about those people then

I know that in a thousand years

I’d fall in love with you again
This is the only way that we should fly

This is the only way to go

And if I lose your love, I know I would die

Oh say you’ll always be my baby

We can make it shine

We can take forever just a minute at a time
More than a woman

More than a woman to me

More than a woman

More than a woman to me
More than a woman

More than a woman to me

More than a woman

More than a woman to me
More than a woman

More than a woman to me

More than a woman

More than a woman to me
More than a woman

R.I.P. Cory Monteith

Well, there was some sad news over the weekend that one of the stars of Glee, Cory Monteith died at the age of 31. He played Finn Hudson on the show.

 I’m not a huge Glee fan. I have probably watch a handful of episodes, but I did like the music that they sang on the show. It was a little game for me to find the original version of the song and match it with the version that was song on Glee.

Here are some of the songs that I liked that Cory Monteith sang in or with others:

She’s Not There” by The Zombies

Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey

Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson

More Than A Woman” by The Bee Gees

There were more songs, but these are the ones that I have listen more on my iPod.

If Glee does do a show that revolves around his death, I might watch that one.

It sad when someone you watch on TV passes away. But it seems a little sadder when that person is young.

R.I.P. Cory Monteith. You will be remembered by you fans!

Pandora Radio

My latest favorite App on my iPhone is Pandora Radio.

With Pandora you can explore this vast trove of music to your heart’s content. Just drop the name of one of your favorite songs, artists or genres into Pandora and let the Music Genome Project go. It will quickly scan its entire world of analyzed music, almost a century of popular recordings – new and old, well known and completely obscure – to find songs with interesting musical similarities to your choice. Then sit back and enjoy as it creates a listening experience full of current and soon-to-be favorite songs for you. (from Pandora website)

I really just started getting into listening to Pandora Radio while I have been at my desk at work. I just sign-in and pick one of the “stations” that I have created and that’s it. Simple.

Here are some of the “stations” that I have created:

The station that I find myself going to more and more is the Burt Bacharach station. I just love his music and other music that sounds similar to his.

Here is one of my favorite songs by Burt Bacharach, “A House Is Not a Home“. And it’s a double bonus if I hear Luther Vandross version of this song when I play his station. (Click here for the video of “big” Luther singing the song here for the “skinner” Luther singing the song.)

So I am glad that Pandora has an App so I can listen to my favorite music anytime and for my cell phone provider for letting me keep my unlimited usage!! Heaven’s knows that I use as much as that unlimited that I can each month!

I Smell Cake*

Today, Robin Gibb of The Bee Gees passed away at the age of 62. I have always been a Bee Gees fan. From their early songs like “To Love Somebody” and “Massachusetts” to their hits from the 70’s like “Fanny (Be Tender with My Love)” and “How Deep is Your Love?

Barry Gibb is now the sole surviving Bee Gee. His brothers Andy Gibb and Maurice Gibb proceeded him in death.

Robin Hugh Gibb, CBE (22 December 1949 – 20 May 2012)

Here is a song that Robin Gibb sang, “I Started a Joke” (1968.)

Side note:

Other sites for Robin Gibb

Here’s another one of my favorite songs from The Bee Gees — “Tragedy” (1979) (Click here to view video.)

*I Smell Cake is in reference to the Scrubs episode — “My Cake.” So whenever someone dies, I say “I smell cake.”
