At Least I am Singing!


All day, since this morning I've had an earworm of a song that I had no idea why I was singing it and then it suddenly hit me. It was the Title of my post this morning, "Looking for Colors"

And for some odd reason here's the song I'm singing in my head over and over:


"I was looking for love in all the wrong places

Looking for love in too many faces

Searching your eyes, looking for traces Of what..

I'm dreaming of...

Hopin' to find a friend and a lover

God bless the day I discover Another heart, lookin' for love"


Go figure!
But that reminded me of an old Perry Como Song called,

" The Colors of My Life"
and I looked it up and decided what pretty lyrics it had.

"The colors of my life, are bountiful and bold!

The purple glow of indigo, the gleam of green an’ gold!

The splendor of a sunrise, the dazzle of a flame,

The glory of a rainbow, will put ‘em all to shame!

No quiet browns or grays, I’ll take my days instead,

And fill them ‘till they overflow, with rose and cherry red!

And should this sunlit world, grow dark one day,

The colors of my life, will leave a shining light, To show the way!

No quiet browns and grays,

I’ll take my days instead,

And fill them ‘till they overflow, with rose and cherry red!

And should that sunlit world, grow dark one day,

The colors of my life, will leave a shining light,

The colors of my life will light the way! "

Can you tell that I'm bored?
I couldn't find the songwriters of either of these songs or I would have certainly credited them but Waylon Jennings sung a version of the first one and like I said, Perry Como, The Colors of my Life.

It's so good to know that you're feeling well. These are two songs that are among my favorites. I don't know who wrote them either.

LOL, hey Mary, looks like I could find the author of such songs, but my search attempt didn't do it. Thanks for your good wishes. And thanks for stopping by.
