SONG OF THE WEEK

Wild Is The Wind

Love me, love me, love me, say you do
Let me fly away with you
For my love is like the wind, and wild is the wind
(Words and music by Dimitri Tiomkin and Ned Washington)

I've always loved this classic song. It never crossed my mind that it wasn't originally a David Bowie song until I heard it in a bar on 9th ave sung by Nina Simone (at the time I didn't know who it was). I shushed my drinking partner so I could hear it better, and sure enough it was Wild Is The Wind. David's version will always be, to me, the definitive one, because, well, he's David inn'e? I'd like to dedicate this post to a special someone who's very busy right now, but maybe she has a minute to break out her Nina record and spend a moment with me in song.
