Monumental Soundbyte - 22



Lionel Richie & Diana Ross - Endless Love



Was there any doubt that this song would make it onto my list? This is one of the bestest songs ever....Most beautifullest love songs ever written and the delivery - top notch. Then again - we all know that Lionel Richie is an amazing song writer.



This song was written for the movie Endless love with Brooke Shields and turned into a phenomenon. Luther and Mariah covered this and as much as i love Luther, i think that Lionel's version is so much better.


I dont know what words to use in this post or what memories to dig up here (much too personal) but i will urge you to listen and appreciate the words to this simple but powerful song ...Enjoy!



I am going to be a goof ball and put something up on my voice thingy in the spirit of today's soundbyte....



I apologise to everyone who has asked for a song and hasnt gotten it....I have been mad busy but i will try to upload them today or tomorrow...

Endless love the movie used to make me cry.
I cried when they made love for the first time, I cried when they got seperated. Thanks for reminding me of this gem, I wanna get in on dvd and see if it still has the same impact.
And this is definitely a beautiful song. Always gives me pause

I'm late pbviously but this one holds a special place in my heart.... when my momma went into labor with me in our little flat over the local pub, this song was playing on the radio. So much like the song, I am a CLASSIC! Lol.
