Classic Film : A Farewell Wish

A Farewell Wish

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0U3w_zpiWSE


The loveliest farewell song I know

It was a toss-up whether I go in for diamonds or sing in the choir. The choir lost.

Re: A Farewell Wish

Beautiful old Scottish song. It is a fitting song for the end of the IMDb posting boards.
I didn't post here often but I did plenty of lurking.
To quote Bob Hope "Thanks for the memories"

I will never let you part, for you are always in my heart: MJ

Re: A Farewell Wish

Re: A Farewell Wish

Thanks Anyghost. I always enjoyed yours too. smart and always something a little unusual, something I didn't know.


I hope I see you on some of the boards.

Re: A Farewell Wish

Thanks, Marsha. LOL, I'd have never thought to be able to tell anyone else on here something they didn't know, I always felt like the slow kid in the room in the face of all the film knowledge going on here. I appreciate the compliment .

Re: A Farewell Wish

I almost posted this version two days ago—or maybe I did, I have posted several songs these days.

Listening to this, it's difficult not to weep. Especially when the farewell is real and immediate.

Re: A Farewell Wish

I Love both of those Aloysius. I have them in my play list
but the Cast version just has something special. Maybe the slightly different tune separates it from the drunken revels of New Years in the States. Maybe its the female voice, so plaintive...

Re: A Farewell Wish

Yes, I agree, Marsha: a female voice gets even deeper and reaches the heart and the soul... More anima than animus.

Re: A Farewell Wish

It was nice bumping into you on the boards!

Good luck in the future on other forums.

Re: A Farewell Wish

Ahhh,
Marsha, Marsha, Marsha...don't go away, we have (maybe) another Garth Game yet to play.

Re: A Farewell Wish

I would love to chat.

But I must feed my bird.

Re: A Farewell Wish

now you've done it. Absolutely my favorite Peter sellers film. Tasteless, the British ones were much more subtle and very funny, but this clueless collection of old gags, absolutely makes me laugh til I'm sick.

Re: A Farewell Wish

(laughter emoticon) - I was bit teary after listening to that achingly beautiful and heartwrenching version of AULD LANG SYNE Marshaemae. So I figured if we are going to go out in tears, let them be tears of laughter. Thank you for seeing the real me and (almost - you must have doubts at times) always believing in my essential goodness. It meant the world to me.

PS. I don't know if I will pull this off, because days are few before the boards go dark, and there are a couple of folk I have to say goodbye to privately, but I hope to send you a PM about spiritual matters before the shutdown arrives.



Grant.

Re: A Farewell Wish

That's lovely. I hadn't heard that melody before.

You gotta start off each day with a song ... even when things go wrong ....

We're Here

We're here, Marshamae, or some of us are. I'm trying to bring some life to these boards. They have people boards, unlike Moviechat. I hope more folks find out about this site. 😍
