I love his version with Sarah Brightman. One of my favorite Josh Groban songs is called "Caruso". OMG!!! I guess I'm such a huge fan that I love every Josh Groban song. One of my favorite CD's is The Three Tenors, in Italy. I'm also a huge Placido Domingo fan. Don't apologize for being a "downer". You have every reason to be down and it's perfectly normal to feel that way. Trust me. I know.
You know, Val, love that elevates our spirits cannot be contained by "time." It is really eternal. And our little "time" within that eternity is so very special.
We replay it in our minds and our emotions and are so thankful that we had the "time." Think of those who never get to experience this kind of love and inspiration and growth.
May that be a message to all: give of yourself and it will come back tenfold; and don't waste the opportunities that you have for the special ones in your life. In a sense, "now" is forever, but how sad if the "now" has nothing in it to remember that is special!
God bless you, Val.
Marge is the love of my life.
"Goodbye England's Rose" is a remake of "Candle in the Wind" ...
Released on September 13, 1997, it became the fastest-selling single in the UK, selling 658,000 copies in the UK on that day alone, and over 1.5 million copies in its first week. The single would remain at number one for 5 weeks. All in all, it eventually sold 4.86 million copies in the UK ... It has been certified as the best-selling single of all time in the UK.
The response in the USA was quite similar. It became the 7th album/song in history to debut at number one, and sold over a million copies in its first week. As a result, the album/single held on to the number one position for 14 weeks .... In total, it sold over 11 million copies in the United States to become the second best-selling single worldwide ...

Well, you know, that's what's great about music and the arts. What speaks to us doesn't necessarily speak to another.
How boring it would be if we all liked the same thing.
On the concept behind "candle" and "goodbye," I am drawn to stories, songs, and art that point to the something "individual" and special that each of us contribute to our world consciousness (if there is such a thing).
Birds or animals in our lives. Family. Friends. Even, sometimes, complete strangers. Can touch our lives - our very souls, I think.
