Favourite English Songs

I was reading a blog from a blogger by the nick name of "Ghost" and decided to share my favourite songs with you too.

This is the blog-site which I saw:-
  • Ghost's top ten

  • * source from "Ghost" *

    Old Beng's Favourite English Songs

    1. Love, Me : Collin Raye
    "...between now and then, till I see you again, I'll be loving you, Love me..."
    * All time favourite *

    2. Just Tell Me You Love Me : England Dan & John Ford Coley
    "...just tell me you love me, whisper words I've so long to hear..."
    * A song which Old Beng sang to his Cha-bo-lang *

    3. Without You : Harry Nilsson
    "...I can't live, if living is without you..."
    * Original version, not the one sang by Air Supply or Mariah Carey *

    4. Stories : Chi Yu
    "Now I'm standing here, no one to wipe away my tears..."
    * One of the few Chinese Single who can sing an English song well *

    5. Papa : Paul Anka
    "...Growing up with him was easy, time just flew on by,
    The years began to fly, He aged and so did I..."
    * A song that makes Old Beng think of his late father everytime he heard the song *

    6. Careless Whisper : George Michael
    "...So I'm never gonna dance again, the way I danced with you.."
    * A classic *

    7. Goodbye Girl : David Gates
    "All your life you've waited, for love to come and stay ..."
    * A nice song to be listened to on rainy nights *

    8. The One You Love : Randy Vanwarmer
    "... Are you gonna stay with the one who loves you, or are you going back to the one you love ..."
    * 2 is company and 3 is a crowd, hope nobody will face such situation *

    9. I Don't Want To Talk About It : Rod Stewart
    "I don't want to talk about it, how you broke my heart,
    if I stay here just a little bit longer, if I stay here,
    won't you listen to my heart, my old heart..."
    * Perfect song, perfect lylics, perfect voice for the song *

    10.Sometimes When We Touch : Dan Hill
    "...And sometimes when we touch, the honesty's too much,
    And I have to close my eyes and hide...
    ...I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides..."
    * A must sing song in Karaoke *

    <<>>

    11.Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word : Elton John
    "...Why can't we talk it over...sorry seems to be the hardest word..."
    * Heard this song once at late late night over the radio and gosh, how it touched my heart *


    The above Oldies are usually appreciated by oldies, people like Old Beng. For those who have never heard of them are probably too young, but then again, songs are very subjective.

    Will share my favourite Chinese and Cantonese Songs later.

      lau hero
      There are of course few more nice songs like "Heaven knows", "Hands to Heaven", "Hello", "It might be you", "Vincent", "How can I tell her", Because I love you", etc etc but "child" is not one of my favourite, as I said, very subjective la.

      Nothing to win or lose la, just that our generation is different. Interested in the songs I mentioned? If I have the time, I can burn for you.

      Beng, I like most of the songs you listed but 2 of my all time favourite are: "Tears in Heaven" and "Have I told you lately that I love you". I can play these songs over and over again while I'm using the pc.
      I'm very fond of music & singing. Maybe we can go KTV after our 'la kopi' session.

      ipromise
      Glad that you like the songs listed, so how shall we put it?
      "Wise minds think alike" or
      "Heroes share the same views"?

      The 2 songs you mentioned are nice songs but I am sure there are many many more but I cannot put all in, just a brief guide.

      Yes, KTV after la-kopi will be just nice. Er...you got sing Mandarin and Canto songs or not?

      BTW which area are you putting up at? North, South, East or West part of Spore?

      Email me if you want it to be confidential at:
      old_beng@yahoo.com.sg

      Kam siah.

      Young girls listen to rap and hip hop, Sentimental songs for sentimental men like us :)

      Confidentiality is to save ipromise problems of having many girls flocking to his house. Meeting for la-kopi and KTV is open to all.

      Beng, I live in the West and have no objection if the girls wants to flock to my place. I can do quite a few Mandarin songs and only one Cantonese. Will email you later.

      Lau Hero, the lyrics of "Within You Remain" is so-so but it does have a unique & catchy tune.

      ChioBu Heroine, I don't do rap or rape, and no hippity hopping for me.
      FYI, Eric Clapton wrote the song "Tears in Heaven", about the loss of his 4 yr old son. Contrary to what the title suggest, it's not meant as a sad song but rather about belief, optimism and reunion, presumably with his son in heaven.
      As for me, I'm not sure I want to go to heaven when I die, because I'm quite sure my tennis buddies will all end up in hell and I may not have any tennis partners if I go to heaven. I'll be crying if that happens and it'll really be "Tears in Heaven".
