I've been tagged by lovely Fashion* CHALET! It is such a sweet tag - something shows our mood and music tastes at the moment. Me? I'm bit retro ... so I like these classics for spring!
- Carpenter – (They Long to Be) Close to You (70s)
Written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, it was originally recorded by Richard Chamberlain in 1963. However, the Carpenter’s version is the most recognised as a hit in 1970.
- U2 – With or Without You (1987)
- U2 – Everlasting Love (1987)
- Tracy Chapman (1988) – Fast Car
- Alison Krauss (1995) - Baby, Now That I've Found You
It was written by Tony Macaulay and John MacLeod for The Foundations’ debut single in 1967, but it did not go well. The lucky thing is that BBC’s newly formed Radio 1 tried to find records that pirate stations had missed. Then, by November it became UK No. 1. In 1995, Alison Krauss collected the single into her album Now that I’ve Found You: A Collection. Her voice is just sooooo spring and sweet.
- Coldplay (2008) - Viva La Vida
Named after Mexcian artist Frida Kahlo, Viva la Vida (long live the life, in Spanish) is the fourth studio album by Coldplay released in May 2008. I adore the artwork featured on the album cover - the painting Liberty Leading the People (La Liberte Guidant Le Peuple) by French Painter Eugene Delacroix, commemorating the July Revolution of 1830.
- Duffy (2008) - Mercy
It is the second single from the album Rockferry by Duffy, released in February 2008! The retro-soul style of the song is just beautiful!
I'm happily tagging some of great Amie's Style Dungeon, Observation Mode, Searching The Inner Me, Retro Life Style, Super Kawaii Mama,The Wandering Alchemist and Silje's Fashion, and hope all of you enjoy this little tag!
