and I noticed that some of the original You Tubes I had used when I wrote the post had since become private videos, so this morning I went looking for some new ones, none of which I had watched before.

"Heartlight" is inspired by the blockbuster movie
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, which Diamond, Bayer Sager and Bacharach had all seen together.
When the alien E.T. leaves Earth, his heart glows a luminous red, hence the title of the song.
An obvious reference to the movie Drew starred in as a child.
On a personal note, my mother starts chemo this week for a cancer of the lung, after being in remission from cancer for well over 5 years...and she was never a smoker.
I had never heard it before and thought here we go, a new song which will probably bore me to death, after hearing so many good oldies.
He said it took him 5 years to write and that it didn't really come together until the very last line.
Well, I believe it comes together with the second last line, but the knockout punch comes with the last line.
I have to say that it took me the second listen on the internet to realize that the song is a classic.
In fact, I'll be quite happy to remain a solitary man for the rest of my life, as I no longer have the trust it would take to believe in a so-called "life partner" again.
And in my book, no relationship is better than a bad relationship.
I may not believe in romantic love anymore, but I do agree with Anita that love, or following your heart-light in life is the key to living life.
Love is much more than a romantic love between two individuals.
Real love is what real friendships are made of, and loving what you do and give to the world and feeling that love in your heart when you give it is what a life well lived is all about.
