Yeah, she upset people when she tore up a picture of the Pope on Saturday Night Live. Even so, this song, written by Prince, is haunting and beautiful...

OK, just one more ;-) Wonderful Tonight. Written by Eric Clapton for Pattie Boyd. She was married to George Harrison when she met and fell in love with Eric. They married then later divorced.



She was a pretty lady. The stories she must have.

This is the song we had for our first dance at the wedding, in 1984.
It is a beautiful memory I shall always cherish.

If Celine's passionate love song doesn't do it for you, how about a "fiery tango".

She came to hate that song as it reminded her of Clapton's alcohol abuse and how things went wrong. Pattie Boyd - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I heard this the other day...I'd almost forgotten about this song. IMO, he has an incredible voice...

A very beautiful and passionate song

Sung by Cristina Motta


Sung by Susana Zabaleta




Kiss me, kiss me a lot
As if tonight were the last time
Kiss me, kiss me a lot.
For I am afraid of losing you, losing you afterward

Kiss me, kiss me a lot
As if tonight were the last time
Kiss me, kiss me a lot.
For I am afraid of losing you, losing you afterward


I want you very close,
To see myself in your eyes, to see you next to me
I think that by morning
I will already be far, far away from you.

-------kiss me a lot
As if tonight were the last time
Kiss me, kiss me a lot
For I am afraid of losing you, losing you afterward.
Kiss me, kiss me a lot

Kiss me, kiss me a lot
For I am afraid of losing you, losing you once more
For I am afraid of losing you, losing you... once more.

Thsi was written by a 15 year old Mexican girl named Consuelo Velásquez, in 1940.
