5 On Friday - Seal With Soul



Once more Friday rolls around and a chance to join in on the 5 On Friday fun at Trav's Thoughts. Stop by to read the rules and sign the Mr. Linky, then go forth and make music for all to share.



One of the problems with aging is that unless you force yourself to keep up, your cultural awareness slips farther and farther behind.  For ages now while watching star arrivals for various events I would see the model Heidi Klum passing through the phalanx of interviewers, always with this tall, incredibly dramatic looking man.  Somewhere in all those images, it sunk into a passing grey cell that he was her husband (they get married every year) and his name was "Seal" and that he was a singer.  So far so good, names attached they could both be ignored while I went about continuing to catch up on all performers from the last thousand years or so.  Then I heard him sing!  Now here's your chance for a little dose of soul courtesy of Seal.

If all you had on this set was "Kissed By A Rose" five times over I'd be a very happy woman. Love that song though the rest are quite good, too!

You guys are doing better than I was. I didn't have a clue about him until I chased down the name and music.

Isn't Seal dreamy? I've been a fan for over a decade!

Crazy and the Eagles cover are my favorites from your yummy set today, Jamie. And I always love it when I make a fabulous discovery and then have a whole backlist to catch up on.

Sometimes an artist is fortunate to have "that" song. I'll always be able to put Seal and Kissed By A Rose together.

But thanks for putting the other songs here, because I know nothing of his music but the one tune!

Kissed By A Rose. A classic.

Kissed by a Rose is still one of my all time favourite songs. :-)
