♫ Wind Beneath My Wings ♫


One of my favorite movies and favorite songs!! Such memories …. Love!!

Filosofa's Word

The first time I heard this song was in 1988 when my daughter and I went to see the movie, Beaches.  It was one of the few movies I have seen in a theater that I could understand the dialog, and I much enjoyed both the story and the music.

The song, Wind Beneath My Wings, was actually recorded by several artists before the release of Beaches, including Gladys Knight and the Pips, Sheena Easton, Lee Greenwood and Lou Rawls.  Who knew?  But by far the most popular version was the one sung by Bette Midler in Beaches.  The song, released as a single in early 1989, spent one week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in June 1989 in the U.S.  I found it humorous that in the UK it was the most-played song at British funerals!  I’m scratching my head on that one…

Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
