Red Letter Day


February. A month both highly dreaded and greatly anticipated depending on the state of your lovelife. Or lack of it. But this month's red letter day is not only on the day of hearts but also on Chinese New Year.

A 64 year old man gathered 300+ signatures for his petition to audition for American Idol. For his introduction, he mentioned that it was something he did with his late wife who passed away a few days back. He did the audition only because it was something he thinks he owe to his late wife. This is his song:

You Belong To Me

See the pyramids around the Nile
Watch the sun rise
From the tropic isle
Just remember darling
All the while
You belong to me
See the market place
In old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
Just remember
When a dream appears
You belong to me

And I'll be so alone without you
Maybe you'll be lonesome too

Fly the ocean
In a silver plane
See the jungle
When it's wet with rain
Just remember till
You're home again
You belong to me

Oh I'll be so alone without you
Maybe you'll be lonesome too

Fly the ocean
In a silver plane
See the jungle
When it's wet with rain
Just remember till
You're home again
You belong to me


Listen to this song in You Tube. I still like Vonda Sheppard's version though in Ally McBeal's soundtrack. =)

I actually cried when the guy sang this song. It was coming from the heart and it just touches me. I just wish there are more men out there who are brave enough to do the same thing for their wives/girlfriends while they are still together instead of doing it when they're already gone

He, he. My eyes were brimming with tears as well. =) It seems really heartfelt and it just makes you feel good that there's still that kind of love in this crazy crazy world.
