CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
“…When the night has been too lonely,
& the road has been too long,
& you think
that love is only
for the lucky
& the strong.
in the winter,
far beneath the winter snow,
lies the seed
that with the sun’s love, becomes the rose...”
Amanda McBroom wrote the soothing lyrics that became the title song for Bette Midler's 1979 film loosely based on vocalist Janis Joplin. The songwriter's words offer encouragement and hope. Midler's delivery complements the lyrics.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
