Richard A Song That Moved You? (108* d) RE: A Song That Moved You? 15 Mar 98


So often it is the singer and their heart, not the song, that moves us. I remember years ago hearing Salome Bey(sp?) sing her version of Mr. Bojangles, from his wife's point of view. Never heard it again but it moved me. And "Circle be Unbroken". Often doesn't do much for me, but when a friend sang it as his brother's memorial service, with his sister standing behind for strength, everyone wepte. Years alter I asked why he had done that, it must have been so hard. "Richard, I knew everyone needed a reason to cry and I decided I was going to give it to them." He did. And it still brings back strong memories. So when Eaglesmith sings "Go Out and Plough I weep because he sings it from his old farmer's heart. Others try but just don't get it.

It the signer, not the song.

Richard
