Lovely Lyrics

My Xmas Tree

So I was listening to the radio when I heard the song "When I Fall in Love" sung by Nat King Cole & his daughter Natalie. He has such a soothing voice and the lyrics were lovely. I couldn't help but compare it to my post yesterday regarding Beyonce's song "Single Ladies".

Basically, if you read the lyrics to the Nat King Cole song, the message is that these days, people's emotions change so quickly, that I would rather fall in love when it's safe to do so and I'm sure of the other person's emotions. My favorite part of the song is
"In a restless world like this is
Love is ended before its begun
And too many moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun".

As a real life example of the fickleness of people's emotions these days, I heard from a coworker about a friend of hers who got married 9 months ago and is now already filing for divorce. Better sooner rather than later I guess. Apparently they had problems going into the marriage that they thought could be solved by the marriage. How naive!

Anyway, I find that the lyrics of songs of yesteryear are so much more intelligent sounding that the lyrics of today. The only thing that Beyonce keeps repeating in her song is put a ring on it. Okay, I promise to blogging about songs. :-)
