Song of the day: Celine Dion- My Heart Will Go On

The last soundtrack as song of the day!

Maybe a bit too predictable, but okay, it’s a good song.
The song of today ment the breakthrough of the singer who sung the song.

It’s Celine Dion with My Heart Will Go On, the soundtrack from the movie with that sinking ship…

How was it called? mmm… Oh, of course! Titanic!

Song of the day: Eurythmics- Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)

Hello,

Today the song of the day is made by a band which I can appreciate very much. Their music is very good.
The song is from 1983, and is about the thing dreams are made of…

It are the Eurythmics with Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)

What you maybe didn’t know about this song, is that the song was the breakthrough for their success.
Later they made songs like There Must Be An Angel, and of course the 1984 song Sexcrime.

Tomorrow another song!
