Piper....i cant bring up that format. What is your song?

@Carla Piper....i cant bring up that format. What is your song?

"You Can Close Your Eyes" .....written by James Taylor, and sang (sung?) very well by both he Linda Ronstadt:

Well the sun is surely sinking down, but the moon is slowly rising.
So this old world must still be spinning round and I still love you.

So close your eyes, you can close your eyes, it's all right.
I don't know no love songs and I can't sing the blues anymore.
But I can sing this song and you can sing this song when I'm gone.

It won't be long before another day, we gonna have a good time.
And no one's gonna take that time away. You can stay as long as you like.

So close your eyes, you can close your eyes, it's all right.
I don't know no love songs and I can't sing the blues anymore.
But I can sing this song and you can sing this song when I'm gone.

Love james taylor.....

She had several "songs about songs" . This is a wonderful and underappreciated ballad.

I do like the writer of the song's rendition of it, too. As you said, there are many songs about music or songs. Most I can think of aren't just about A song, though.

True.

Don't feel limited, post as many as you like. There are so many songs about music or the music industry, or about writing songs, etc.

Okay....thanks Vic. Maybe just a few that first popped into my head. :)

I had forgotten how much I like Russel, he doesn't get much airplay up here so I will seed a Pandora. He was a fantastic artist, may he rest in peace.

Sure. I am not picky. This is pretty cool BTW, is it the actual sound track?

@VicZinc Wow, never heard of her. She's quite good.

Like Leon Russell, she's doesn't get much "airplay". Like Linda Ronstadt, she often sings songs that were written by someone else, and to me anyway, delightfully. She did write this one, and the one I posted above...

This one was a 'hit' by Bette Midler, but I like Nanci's rendition much better. Whether one believes in 'God' or not, I think it's a powerful song. Julie Gold wrote it.....
