Music Monday - Your Song

This song gives me goosebumps now that I hear it again!

I honestly don't know what song to post for Music Monday today, I am thinking along the lines of something related to my hubby and I's 17th anniversary. It could be "I Remember You", or could also be "Against All Odds". But I wanted something new, something that we both like. Then just 3 days ago, my friend/cousin/classmate Mars , the realty specialist, posted the lyrics on her facebook wall:
"So excuse me forgetting, but these things I do
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen"
... to which I commented back, "Hey, mapapakanta ako nyan, Mars! It's from a favorite movie Moulin Rouge"

This morning, I heard the song again when it was sung by TV5's Sapul Sa Singko main hosts. Got that as a sign,so now I'm posting :)

Let me share the lyrics, originally by Elton John...

It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live
If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you
And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world
I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on
So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

I love the movie, that is why I love the song! Happy MM!

Thanks for agreeing with me, I think it's a grand movie. Would you believe I've watched it a hundred times and maybe would watch it again? Second cousins from London influenced me to like it that much!

Thanks for the greeting! That's okay :)
