CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
THE WAY HE MAKES ME FEEL
“…There’s no chill
& yet I shiver.
There’s no flame
& yet I burn.
I’m not sure what I’m afraid of
& yet I’m trembling...”
"The Way He Makes Me Feel" was written for the film 'Yentl', a project that was a long-held ambition of its director Barbra Streisand. With a lush score from composer Michel Legrand, the love song includes lyrics from the husband & wife team of Alan and Marilyn Bergman. The film soundtrack was issued in 1983.
Streisand plays a brave woman challenging the norms of her time in order to participate in the world of learning. To do so, Yentl disguises herself as a male. Her plan goes awry when she falls in love with a fellow student. Unexpected feelings begin to stir. The song outlines the changes within her. Anyone caught off guard by feelings for another will relate to the song's lyrics.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
