Beautiful Songs

Everyday I ride the bus and to drown out the noise of many different languages being spoken and shouting over mobile phones I plug myself into the ipod. As I was scrolling through my song choices the other day my first thought was to find something loud - I was looking for something by AC/DC when I had a rare brainwave. Write a post on songs about beautiful women. It's quite amazing how many songs have been inspired and written about beautiful ladies.

The first one that came to mind was INXS - Beautiful Girl. But have you ever listened to the words of that song? I guess I had forgotten but it's really quite sad and it's all about this lost girl so scrapped that idea. I can't bear You're Beautiful by posh toss James Blah and Pretty Woman (except the Van Halen version) makes me feel physically ill.

My favorite is this one by Frankie Sinatra - swoon! Any others?


  1. This one...


  2. Does Jolene by the forever perfectly groomed Dolly count? One of my favourite songs about a beautiful woman, even if she does steal other women's men.

  3. Both of those are brilliant! Ah The Beautiful Ones by the one and only pretty man himself Prince - well chosen Annie.
