Country Music Friday – “Holding Out For A Hero” by Ella Mae Bowen

Although I really like Bonnie Tyler’s upbeat 80’s version of this song, I gotta say that this slower one is my favorite of the two. I think it sounds much more sweet and romantic. Every time I hear it I always think it would be the perfect song in the background of a love scene. The little details play out in my head like a movie: a man and a woman alone in a candle lit room; tender, sweet kisses; soft white cotton sheets; a close up shot of the man’s hand as he slowly slides the strap of her dress from her shoulder while he trails slow, lingering kisses down her neck…sigh.
