It is Music Monday time. Hmm, let’s see what I have here. My pick for today is “Take My Breath Away” by Berlin. This song is also memorable for me. Know why? When my husband (he was my boyfriend at the time) came to meet me for the second time (the first time we met was in Manila) in my hometown (Mindanao), we went to a karaoke bar with my siblings. Well, it was my idea. I know my siblings love to sing too like me. We actually used to sing at home because we have a small karaoke machine where we can sing as we please without limit. So there we were picking songs. I was hesitated to sing at first, I was shy because my husband was there. So, I let my sisters and brother sing but I didn’t. Hubby noticed it and asked me why I am not singing. Left no choice, I picked the song “Take My Breath Away” by Berlin. I haven’t sung the song in our karaoke machine before but I decided to give it a try. I was able to deliver the tune right although I was shaking. It was the first time I sing having him around as one of the audiences. I can sing up to my lungs only with my family but not with other people around. After I sung, I heard the best compliment I have ever received in life - my husband told me I have a good voice. Wink.

This song is also a soundtrack of a movie, Top Gun starring the lead actor Tom Cruise as Lt. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell. Check out the music video:





Watching every motion in my foolish lover's game
On this endless ocean finally lovers know no shame
Turning and returning to some secret place inside
Watching in slow motion as you turn around and say
Take my breath away, take my breath away

Watching I keep waiting still anticipating love
Never hesitating to become the fated ones
Turning and returning to some secret place inside
Watching in slow motion as you turn around and say
Take my breath away, take my breath away

Through the hourglass I saw you in time you slipped away
When the mirror crashed I called you and turned to hear you say
If only for today I am afraid
Take my breath away take my breath away

Watching every motion in this foolish lover's game
Haunted by the notion somewhere there's a loving flame
Turning and returning to some secret place inside
Watching in slow motion as you turn around and say
Take my breath away my love
Take my breath away my love
Take my breath away
Take my breath away
