Saturday Song: I Want to Spend My Lifetime Loving You from The Mask of Zorro

Tomorrow, my late husband Bill and I would have been married eleven years. In 2005 after Bill proposed to me, while we were still living miles apart, he sent me a Valentine care package which included, among other things, a cassette tape of love songs he’d downloaded from the Internet. The song below was on that tape. Even now, it captivates me, and I’m amazed that a man wanted to spend his lifetime loving me. I still want to spend the rest of my life loving him.

    1. Bruce, I enjoyed your Saturday song feature of Janis Joplin’s “Piece of My Heart.” It put me in mind of another song I liked by her that may not have been as popular. I’ll post it here next week, so stay tuned.
