    "The Five Senses" sounds like a '50's Rock Group! :) And now folks, here on our stage for the very first time, Itchy and the Five Senses! Applause, applause, applause.

    Any songs we can come up with that have one of the 5 senses in the title or lyrics.

    Examples: TOUCH/Feeling, HEARING, SEEING/Looking, SMELL/Fragrance, TASTE/Sweet/Sour etc.

    I hope the fact that you are posting again means you are feeling much better.

    I kinda think we've had this category before, but I couldn't find it. In any case
    it's probably like love. Better the second time around.

    "I hear a bird. A Londonderry bird." From the song How Are Things
    in Glocca Morra. (I'm pretty sure one of us posted this before.) From
    the musical Finian's Rainbow.

    And from the musical State Fair, It's a Grand Night for Singing.
    Somewhere a bird who is bound he'll be heard is throwing his
    heart at the sky.
    It's been made into a movie twice. Still haven't seen it.

    I hear singing and there's no one there. I smell blossoms and there's
    no one there. From "You're Just in Love".

    I See the Moon, the moon sees me.
    shining through the leaves of the old oak tree.

    Can it be the trees that fill the breeze with
    such sweet perfume? Oh no, it isn't the breeze.
    It's "Love in Bloom". Jack Benny's theme song.

    Goin' back to bed.

    Rock, I SEE that this category wore you out!! Sorry to HEAR that you FEEL so tired but maybe when you wake up and SMELL that coffee you'll be able to TASTE all that the day holds for you!

    Those are great songs. I didn't know that was the name of Jack Benny's theme song, I must have heard it a thousand times on his show.

    I don't think we had this category before but maybe the songs were part of another related theme.

    Yes, I am feeling better the last couple of days. I think the last abx might have cured the uti. I'll test again to be sure.

    "I Am Woman", hear me roar. Sung by Helen Reddy in the movie "Pete's
    Dragon". Hadn't thought of that for years. Took my son to see it. He
    was 6. Had a nice song called "Candle in the Wind." Oops! Just checked.
    The song was called "Candle on the Water". Well, wind; water; all very

    When you’re weary, feeling small, from "Bridge Over Trouble Water".

    I see trees of green, red roses, too,
    I see them bloom, for me and you
    And I think to myself
    What a wonderful world.

    With regard to coffee, I feel about it like I do about gasoline. The aroma
    is pleasant, but I never drink either. Oops! Gotta go. Gordon has to send an
    e mail. Something vital, no doubt. Cheers.

    Rock, Skip the coffee and smell the orchids instead. :)

    I drink one cup of weak instant for breakfast and that's the extent of my coffee drinking habit. Never cared for the brewed kind. GB

    I really like this one:

    What A Wonderful World Video:
    [​IMG] Lyrics to What A Wonderful Word I see trees of green, red roses too
    I see them bloom for me and you
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

    I see skies of blue and clouds of white
    The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

    The colours of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of people going by
    I see friends shakin' hands, sayin' How do you do?
    They're really saying I love you

    I hear babies cryin', I watch them grow
    They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
    Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world

    Oh yeah

    Well, we've got some great songs here. Always wished I could sing.

    Such a feeling coming over me
    There is wonder in most every thing I see
    Not a cloud in the sky, got the sun in my eyes
    And I won't be surprised if it's a dream
    From Top of the World sung by the Carpenters.

    Wunderbar, wunderbar!
    There's our favorite star above.
    What a bright, shining star;
    Like our love it's wunderbar!
    From Cole Porter's Kiss Me Kate

    Since love is a feeling, there must be at least 2 million feeling songs. :)

    I Feel Pretty, Oh so pretty. From West Side Story.

    Said, when I'm taking sips from your tasty lips
    Seems the honey fairly drips.
    From Honeysuckle Rose by Fats Waller.

    I Hear you knocking, but you can't come in.

    I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day. From the poem by Longfellow.

    I hear singing and there's no one there. From the song "You're Just
    in love" by Irving Berlin.

    See You Later, Alligator. A hit from my teens made famous by Bill Haley
    and his comets.

    Hi Kids

    Here's a song from Bye, Bye Birdie.
    "We love you, Conrad. Oh, yes, we do
    We love you, Conrad. And we'll be true.
    When you're not near us. We're blue
    Oh, Conrad, we love you."

    And from The King and I.
    "Whenever I feel afraid, I hold my head erect.
    And whistle a happy tune. So no one will suspect I'm afraid."

    Brigadoon contained this cheerful tune.
    "And from the way that I feel when that bell starts to peal,
    I could swear I was falling, I would swear I was falling,
    It's almost like being in love."

    Ooops! Nearly lost my post. The page shrank. The letters were so
    small they might as well have been invisible. Guess I will try to post
    this and hope for the best.
