Still in love

So there has been a bum rush of B (Beyonce) this week because her deluxe CD dropped yesterday that includes a video anthology...and VH1 Soul and MTV Jams have been showing all of her videos...

KC even did a blog about it, to which I have made my feelings clear about all of the vids...I agree with mikesee when he states they all look like they were done in ONE day with the same basic concept...but this song...

This song, brought tears to my eyes literally...

maybe because my relationship is growing and everything and there are all these feelings bubbling up inside of me...

But anyways...check out the vid...



now that is what i am talking about...the singing, the song, the lyrics, the music, the emotion....and its a take on one of my all time favorite songs....so to me this is just beautiful....


UPDATE:
here is the original!
This IS totally awesome & beautiful and you can understand why J, was so adoment about people understanding that the original was much better and is a timeless classic!
and I agree...I still think B does a decent job...

and flaws-and-all is a remake from the Romio and Juliet soundtrack (with Leo and Clair). She did the song well but the original was pretty great too.

MAN..why were me and the roomie sayin the same thing...they look the same and of course it's easy to do videos for every song when you're the only person in the video...the black and white concept is cute once..not 5 times LOL..ok I'm done

I'll give it to her she is doing the dang on thing though..tryin to retire in 5 years seems like it lol

I liked this video as well as Flaws and all...

This is the first song I have heard her sing that I automatically thought it was a timeless song (please don't try to convince me all her music is timeless.)

TC I have to admit..this VIDEO had me in tears too. LMAO

I'm sorry, but I HATE HATE HATE that she remade this song. This is one the most beautiful songs ever and she's completely JACKED Desiree. I just feel like she completely stole it because Desiree didn't get the accolades she should have gotten for this song... and now this girl... geez.

Beautiful song, but Bee don't touch stuff that doesn't belong to you because you KNOW people are going to think you did an awesome job and fall in love with you because of it.

I'm seriously hating on this.

Sorry Desiree. =(

I do like the Flaws and All video though. (I put it on K.C.'s comment box for Beyonce.) That video is surprisingly refreshing.

I bought the movie just for this song... here's the song, but you have to watch the whole movie to transition into this part. this scene stole my heart the first time I saw it. it's where romeo and juliet fall in love...and where they find out that the other is from their family's main rival. so heartwrenching. Now THIS made me cry.

Your right this is beautiful, but maybe because of where I am in my relationship.

@all-waited to late to comment
I agree that Desiree (the original version) is a CLASSIC...period...but she didn't do a bad job of this...(I thought that I would be the only person to remember that it came from Romeo...) and I do think that Flaws & all is beautiful too...

I like this song and the Flaws & All...ok, so here it is I like her better when she is IN love and I like Jay Z when he isn't...so does that work....NO...

thank you for sharing!!

peace, love and hugs!!

Daneger said...

Well at least JAC let me know why I thought this was a timeless song...because it's someone else's timeless song. LMAO. I still like it though but it may just be the laying in the sand thing. LOL.

Ilike B but I gotta agree wit JAC on this

"I'm sorry, but I HATE HATE HATE that she remade this song. This is one the most beautiful songs ever and she's completely JACKED Desiree. I just feel like she completely stole it because Desiree didn't get the accolades she should have gotten for this song... and now this girl... geez.

geesy pessy...I guess it takes BeYoncE to get you all to comment on my blog...LOL...but really I think its about the music

FOR THE RECORD: I do think that Deisree does a better job, and B can't touch the original, HOWEVER I still like th song...OK

@jus-you are so welcome! I am glad that it moved you...

@dane-you stupid...

@empty-(ok I wanna give you a hug too) I can understand your frustration, B tends to do that to folkds...

@honey-yes the orginial is always going to be CLASSIC

@jac-you must be really feeling some type of way about this version...lol...but I feel ya...and YES I love that movie...its a really good interpretation of the play (BTW Shakesphere is one of my fav playwrites)

@e-you ain't never lied brah..."personality of toenail clippings..." geesh that's harsh remind me NEVER to get on your bad side...lol
