#SLS (2nd selection) Every Time it Snows, Olivia Newton-John and Jon Secada

I don’t do it often, but today is a double feature.  Here is my second selection.

Jim Adams is the ever-responsible host of Song Lyric Sunday.  Jim was called away for a few days but still made sure to post the prompt for Sunday.  Jim says:
This week we have Duet, so you should look for songs that are sung as duets.


Jon Secada and Olivia Newton-John

I forgot about this song, but when I heard Christine’s wonderful selection, it reminded me of it.  I first heard the song on the day I posted about it last month during holiday songs December.  It had me crying like a baby, not only because of the beautiful lyrics and melody but by how extraordinary Olivia Newton-John and Jon Secada perform their duet.  I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do.

Christmas Wish is an album by Olivia Newton-John, released in November, 2007. It is the second original album of Christmas music recorded by Newton-John after ‘Tis the Season with Vince Gill (Hallmark, 2000), and the compilation partly from that, The Christmas Collection. It is her second album produced by Amy Sky. It features versions of classic Christmas songs and guest appearances from Barry Manilow, Jon Secada, Michael McDonald and others. In 2008, the album was re-released as a Target exclusive and included the bonus track “In the Bleak Midwinter”

Every Time It Snows” is a duet between Olivia and Jon Secada.

Spiraling and trembling
The snowflakes tumble down
Fluttering like angel wings
Like diamonds on the ground
Autumn leaves are gone now
Winter winds blow cold
But I’d dance through December
With your hand to hold
Oh It’s you I miss the most
Every time it snows
Carollers and revellers
Their songs are bittersweet
The streets are full but they can’t fill
The emptiness in me
Christmas lights are sparkling
But still they lack a glow
Everything reminds me
That you’re too far from home
Oh It’s you I miss the most
Every time it snows
Please come back regresso mi corazon
Please come back
Te extrano tanto mi amor
Back to me my love te neccessito te quiero
I need you here regresso mi regresso mi
I cry frozen tears
Spiraling and trembling
The snowflakes tumble down
Fluttering like angel wings
They fall without a sound

Songwriters: Breithaupt / Jordan / Don Breithaupt / Marc Jordan
