American singer, actor, comedian and author Bette Midler released her eighth studio album, Bette of Roses, in 1995.
The album came out a few years before my sweety, and I got together. She has always been a big fan of “The Divine Miss M” and later bought me the CD as a gift. We listened to it a lot over the years, though we haven’t for a while. I was thinking of the album yesterday when flipping through my collection.
The song “To Deserve You” is a particular favourite as its lyrics resonate with some of the early struggles we had in our relationship. Now I look back with a lot of gratitude for our blended family and the home we all created together.
Since the early years, our relationship has grown and matured, and I feel truly blessed to be with such a loving woman. And, my dear, I still want to deserve you.
Now you know a little about why this is my song of the day for today. Thanks for joining me here, and please enjoy.
Here’s the official music video for the song from the Rhino Entertainment YouTube channel:
