Julia Fordham's (Love Moves In) Mysterious Ways

It was a joy to watch Julia Fordham perform at the Glorietta last Sunday, February 10th. My sisterly connections allowed me to sit deadsmack in the center, three rows from her foot. I must admit that I am not a fan-fan, in the truest sense. I know who she is- who doesn't!, I know some of her songs, and her voice is just marvelous. But to paraphrase her last song for the night, loving her is easy 'coz she's such a beautiful singer...

Here's the only one among the dozen or so songs she performed in the concert which I managed to capture on video almost completely. The clips do her voice no justice due to their rather poor quality but I tell you- her performance in all her songs regardless of the medium (casette, CD, mp3, and live) is simply amazing.

Lest I forget, the Filipino band under the leadership of Toti Fuentes provided the excellent complementary touch to Julia Fordham's songs and lyrics.

Advance Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!





(Love Moves In) Mysterious Ways
written by Tom Snow and Dean Pitchford

Who'd have thought this is how the pieces fit
You and I shouldn't even try making sense of it
I forgot how we ever came this far
I believe we had reasons but I don't know what they are
Don't blame it on my heart, oh

Love moves in mysterious ways
It's always so surprising
When love appears over the horizon
I'll love you for the rest of my days
But still it's a mystery
How you ever came to me
Which only proves
Love moves in mysterious ways

Heaven knows love is just a chance we take
We make plans but then love demands a leap of faith
So hold me close and never never let me go
'Cos even though we think we know which way the river flows
That's not the way love goes, no

(Repeat chorus)

Like the ticking of a clock two hearts beat as one
But I'll never understand the way it's done, oh

(Repeat chorus)

Love moves... in mysterious ways....
