This song deserves a proper video but...


...there are only live videos of Over the Rhine playing this song called 'Born'.
So, forgive the video situation, and enjoy the sound, as the quality is fantastic.

Oh and grab some tissues because it may provoke some tears over there. I adore this song, absolutely beautiful and addictive.

"I was born to love,
I'm gonna learn to love without fear"

This reminds me of a book I finished reading this week called "The Love Secrets of Don Juan" by a british writer called Tim Lott. It's about a middle-aged man with a failled marriage behind him and a handful of failed relationships with women, including his own daughter. He decides to analyse the hidden reasons behind his failures, his own mistakes and how to correct them. He wants to find out the secrets to dealing better with women. This results in a fantastic, honest, heartfelt book, the kind that you want to read, re-read, underline and make a study about. Loved it.

Ah! now this will be another favorite song of mine! So gracefully elegant, gentle, and meaningful... love it! :)

You don't understand...music is my weakness!!! So, I truly loved this one :)

Think the book's author might come up with a sequel on how to understand men, instead? I'd really want to read that one. Soon. :)

Oh I know...it's my weakness too, that's why I couldn't stop posting it, even if the video was bad! :)
I think the author thinks men are pretty straightforward, while women are symbolic beings with lots of hidden agenda! Only a woman could write the opposite book...

Hi, Devil Mood. Great song, I'm glad you turned me on to it. I'm going to check these guys out further.

Niall: To be honest, Mr. Lott didn't know much - he probably would have things to learn from you. :)

Chloe: I think they're very underrated but they have a lot of albums out. They're from Ohio. Glad you liked it.

Sleekpelt: Hello there! I'm happy I could present you with music you like - I always love it when I get to know great songs through other people, namely bloggers.
