I had an interesting conversation the other day when a friend who popped out with his top 7 songs and movies…this was a person who I was trying to get to know, but seemed elusive. And because I’m a bit of a chameleon I, too, tend to clam up when with another clam.
Anyway, I thought it was pretty important, being a film blogger that I have a top 10 list of modern films. And why not have 7 songs as well?
So here goes my films, not in any order of importance, they’re just all darn good.
Saving Private Ryan
The Constant Gardner
And because I do so many foreign films I am going to add 2 of those:
Toni Erdmann and Avalanche
This Song For You Ray Charles (and every great voice)
An elusive track by Kurt Elling that I’ve only heard him do live
Be Good Gregory Porter
Please Forgive Me David Gray
For the Love of You Whitney Houston
Beautiful Ones Prince
Express Yourself Madonna
You’re Too Early Kenny Loggins
Sweet Reunion Kenny Loggins
Whenever I Call Your Friend Loggins/Nicks
