Beautiful life, beautiful world, beautiful time

As I was going through my car’s glove box this morning to remove the many paper napkins that have piled up over the past few months, I realized I have a few music CDs in there. And I’ve been so busy with life, I can’t remember the last time I listened to any of them. I found a few Sting CDs in the pile, James Blunt, Keane, and a CD with various songs, including one I had completely forgotten about.

It’s called Beautiful Life by the band Fisher. Part of the song has been used for several TV commercials over the past seven years. This song, Beautiful Life, is just… beautiful. If you every need a pick-me-up, this song will do it, every time. I myself can’t listen to it without humming, singing, and smiling from ear to ear, thinking about my two kids. Because this song is all about showing your kids how beautiful life is, how beautiful the world around us is, how to seize the day, look around and notice the small things. And Kathy Fisher, the band’s singer, has one of the most beautiful, purest voices I’ve ever heard. She’s one of those singers who sing with her heart, not her gut.

I’ll let you enjoy this song, so you can tell me what you think. It’s just too beautiful not to share. Then scroll down and hear what other Fisher songs I really like.

Several years ago, Fisher wrote a 30-second song for the San Diego Zoo called Only One You. It’s pure bliss, and it gives me the chills every time I watch this commercial

Feel free to read more about the band Fisher and listen to more of their music on the Fisher website. And I dare you to listen to the song “I Will Love You” while thinking about someone who’s not with you anymore without crying. It’s one of those very sad songs that somehow makes you feel better, if you know what I mean.

    That is lovely, I’ve never heard it before either.

  2. I have that song on my IPod. Love it! And I loved the zoo video. Makes me want to pack up the kids and head there. :)

    • Isn’t it a cool commercial? The San Diego Zoo has tried many types of commercials, but cute to funny, but this has to be one of my favorites. Especially because it shows exactly what you see when you visit the zoo, there’s nothing fake in that video.

  3. Milka…thank you so very much for sharing these clips! I had never heard them…and I absolutely love the zoo commercial…what an amazing message to every child…to celebrate their uniqueness. :)

    • Isn’t that so true?! And yet schools and society in general do a great job at evening out our unique skills, talents and passion throughout our childhood. It’s quite a challenge for parents to fight it!

  4. I haven’t time to listen now but will later – thank you!

  5. I have heard that “Beautiful Life” song before, but didn’t know the artist. Thanks for making the connection.

    I love the way music can influence our emotions – “Beautiful Life” seems like the perfect song to sing out loud during a drive on a sunny day with the windows down.
