30 Day Song Challenge – Day 28

30 day song challenge

Today’s prompt is: A song by an artist whose voice you love.

This is really, really hard, I mean there are so many. There are lots of strong, classically beautiful voices out there from Pavarotti to Adele both of whom I love. There are also voices I love that aren’t classically beautiful but carry such emotion you just stop and go WOW such as Rod McKuen and Rod Stewart. I’m going to dig waaay back for this one to a voice I grew up listening to, grew up idolizing and wanting to sing like (no, I don’t btw), Miss Peggy Lee

An Empty Glass

Close the door and pull the blinds
Fill your glass, but don’t fill mine
Here’s to you now for the last time
Here’s to me your sometime past time
Here’s to love, an empty glass

Feeling low, but it will pass
With some coffee, demitasse
Black and strong and very bitter
I can think of nothing fitter
For a lover, second class

Deep inside I guess I knew
You were too good to be true
Still it rocked me to discover
You would kiss and run for cover
When I started loving you

Nothing could have made it last
Say goodbye and say it fast
Here’s to you now for the last time
Here’s to me your sometime past time
Here’s to love, an empty glass

Songwriters: Luiz Bonfa & Dick Manning

Til next time ~Peace ~JPP
