For the following year I kept my radio dial on 107.5 and became a smooth jazz fan. One particular haunting instrumental became a favorite. I would hear it often but somehow never was able to catch the tune's name. Not thinking it was an urgent matter, I had made a grave assumption. One morning I turned the radio on and 107.5 was no more. No warning at all, it had cruelly been replaced with some other type of music. I posted a comment on the radio website along with others, expressing our displeasure with this move.
For at least five years I had been searching for this song. I would play SIRIUS smooth jazz on the TV hoping to hear the song. I would try to find smooth jazz radio channels when we traveled, hoping to find it. I won't even go into all the Google searches. A couple of weeks ago, I couldn't sleep and was channel surfing on TV, once again I stayed on the smooth jazz station. About two months ago I received an email from 107.5 announcing they were back on the air and could be found online. This was great news for me and I started listening to it.
After two months of steady listening while drawing at my table, I still had not heard "my song". Songs would begin and I would think "they sounds like it a little" and even thought my mind was playing tricks on me. Maybe after all that time I might not have remembered it correctly. Day in and day out, I sat here drawing and listening and waiting.
A couple of weeks ago I sat down at my table after a little break. On the 15th day of May, Tuesday at 1:56 PM I finally heard "my song". I write often about being emotional but I have to tell you, I had some emotions going on when I heard "my song". After all that time! The instant I had returned to my table, the song began from the beginning ... exactly at the beginning. Perfect timing. OMGosh, the icing on the cake was a fantastic video of "my song" which I discovered shortly after hearing it again for the first time.
Just have to share some comments about this song. I was not alone in my emotions and feelings:
◙ upon locating the song after many years, one commenter shared you "can only imagine my joy".
◙ not from this world ... rare and perfect in any way.
◙ all time sexiest song ever
◙ searching for this song for 19 years, my life is complete
◙ love is no longer enough to explain how I feel about this song
◙ having heard this I can now die happy
There were many comments telling of trying to find this song anywhere from 1 year to 19 years. The song was released in 1989 and was the theme song for the movie 'Lily Was Here". It became a #1 hit for five weeks in the Netherlands and hit #11 in the U.S. market.
After sharing my excitement with my sister regarding finding "my song", the following was at my front door a few days later:
|My sister Patti had left a CD with "my song" on it|
outside my front door.
Thank you, Patti!
