Theme Thursday - Wind

Theme Thursday - Wind

Was lost with this week's theme... "in the wind", so to speak.

Until I thought of the great song "Colors of the Wind", which was performed beautifully by Vanessa Williams:



Have a great day!

  5. Didn't that win (or was it nominated) for an Oscar for Best Song? I had forgotten it, but it was lovely to hear again.

  6. I must confess to preferring the version sung during the film, but a great song nonetheless. Thanks for reviving that particular memory.

  12. Ugh...Pocahontas. I had all boys so we didn't go in for the Disney 'chick flicks'

  13. Aww I loved Pocahontas . . It's a Bainbridge household flaw or challenge to try to identify the voices in animated movies. I think I've missed a few nuances of the plot by trying to work out who the voice belongs to!

  14. Nice-like mine, a music connection. Pocohantas from Disney, correct?

    Ravyn: Thanks!

    Ronda: Vanessa is still pretty, and still has a beautiful voice.

    Candie: Tough one! :)

    Poetikat: Yes, I think it did win the Oscar that year.

    Silver Fox: The in-movie version is good, too, but I just love Williams' voice.

    Dakota: Yes, it is!

    Sandra: Yeah, glad you liked it!

    Brian: Definitely, love a song that is not only wonderful as is, but has a great meaning behind it!

    Debo: Yes, I love her voice. She has a great Christmas song, too, called "Save The Best For Last".

    Dot-Com: Wonderful movie, for sure.

    Marianna: You're welcome! :)

    Tom: Ah, but is is a good one!

    Baino: That is very funny. :)

  17. Not Patrick Swayze's "She's like the Wind"?

  18. Kris: Huh, I guess that would have been a good choice, too! And no one used it, that I can recall!

  19. it's a great song. i was really excited to see a sycamore tree for the first time (we dont have them in my country) and only because i heard it from that song... :D

  20. What Megan said.

    Very lovely.

  21. Reyjr: Cool, I guess we take what we see all the time for granted!

    Cuppa Jo: Yeah, it is. :)

  22. I am really out of the loop in kids shows since my boys are all big now. I feel like if I am going to go see one I should be with a little kid so people don't think I am a pervert or kidnapper scoping out all the potential victims.

    Anyway this was beautiful thanks for sharing. I love Ugly Betty and Vanessa is wonderful and what about those blue/green eyes of hers?

  23. You Tube is not cooperating. I might have to try later.

  24. Colette: She has beautiful eyes, for sure she is just all-around beautiful.

    Michael: Appears to be working fine now.

  25. Hi! Caffeinated Joe,

    What a beautiful song!...to go along with this Thursday Theme.

    I was undecided..instead of,"lost" on whether to post The Wind starring Lillian Gish, or the 1997 film titled Wind.Just like you, I settled on posting a video.

    Thanks, for sharing!...and Happy Mother's Day to all the mother(s) in your life.
    Take care!
    DeeDee ;-D
