the list of the moment, volume two

I admit, I have been mooning about lately and so my present list of the moment, the current top songs on MY own list, which I do periodically, is perhaps not to be completely trusted. That said, I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't at least find it to try some of these songs, unless they are way out of your genre (so far that you couldn't crawl home), then I think why not give it a shot. Without any more stalling then, here is the list of the moment:

Je Reviens - Autour de Lucie - This song just flows through the lips. It has an ever-present French pout about it, and a slight whispering quality that makes this glide out of the speakers soft as baby power hitting your face, a very gentle breath blown by a lover on the ear. This song seems perfect for anyone having an, or wishing to have, an affair or for the newly involved or those lucky few who remain in love despite the many years that go by. Suffice to say, I think this an incredibly romantic, but also sexual/sensual song. See if you can find it and give it a quick listen.

Ne Me Quitte Pas by Sting - because it's a great cover of a truly romantic song, and one not need understand the words to understand that this is a truly pleading song (the title, Ne Me Quitte Pas - Don't Leave Me, in French, for those who perhaps didn't know. Many versions of this available for download, but this is the best and who can beat Sir Sting.
