Therapeutic Tuesday : Heaven by DJ Sammy & Yanou featuring Do

Nothing else beats the great music back in those days. Not saying that the new generations songs' sucks, but there's a certain reason why the oldies and classic have much better values and meaning in their songs, and lasts longer. Even as decades goes by, these songs stand (stand?) strong and inspirational through time.

Most of these songs may have cheesy lyrics, or even ridiculous music videos that simply makes no sense but the what mattered was the song, and the music of course. Some songs are just great on their own, that it doesn't matter how moronically weird its music video is, you'll find yourself still feeling attached to the songs, appreciating the songs, not the videos.

An example of these amazing songs would be those that have beautiful lyrics. Some can be very deep and requires interpreting (though sometimes we know a song or poem have many different interpretation, depending on the listener/reader), and some can be very quite simple straightforward, so that you can just enjoy the song to the fullest. Relate it to your feelings, feelin' that beat pop in your every bones and groove on the lovely voices.

This week's selection brings Heaven. Originally sung by Bryan Adams, DJ Sammy and Yanou released a dance cover of it with vocals by Do (Dominique Rjipma). This dance single reached number one on the UK Singles Chart and subsequently featured in Dance Dance Revolution series of video games. Do's singing was the perfect combination of beautiful vocal and eargasm shrill that inspires people as they listen to this song, that was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America after over seven years of its release.

"Baby you're all that I want
When you're lying here in my arms
I'm finding it hard to believe
We're in heaven,
And love is all that I need
And I found it there in your heart
It isn't too hard to see
We're in heaven..."
- Bryan Adams & Jill Vallance
