For this week’s musical selection, I bypassed the Internet and searched through my personal collection instead. I looked through my CDs in search of a song that fit with the assigned theme, hoping to find more than just a song that begins with “T” though. I wanted to find a song that shows a thankful perspective as well.
I went through every disk…pulling out the CDs with “T” songs listed. Near the end of my search, well into the Ws…I pulled out Steve Winwood. I had planned to dismiss “The” as my “T” word, but when I saw “The Finer Things” listed…I decided to go with it anyway.
When I first fell in love with this song, it was more due to the spiritual nature of the lyrics…and not at all in a romantic sense. For me, it’s about all I have, all I am and all I know…and for all of that, I’m thankful.
UMG won’t allow me to embed a youtube version of this song, but you can listen to it over on youtube.com.
