I love to watch the sky from my backyard or balcony. All those wonderful pattern and colors painted by nature everyday. This photo here reminded me of the burning sun (Well, as matter of fact it is the sun). Fire and flames. Thus, lead me to the memories of my favorite song Eternal Flame. I never knew anything else about this song, but thanks to Wikipedia I can tell you now that it is:

A song by The Bangles which became a hit single in 1989, peaking at number one in the charts in six countries, including Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It was written by popular songwriters Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly and the Bangles' own Susanna Hoffs.

My currently slow Internet connection hindered me from a throughout search of a video. I hope you enjoy this new song version of the Atomic Kittens here. The flowers caught my attention and the sound seemed to be good. Since I have read in the YouTube comment section that the lyrics were a little bit difficult to read, I added the Bangles lyrics from Lyricsmode.com. Have a great weekend, everyone :)!

That sun really is burning. It's so bright. Nicely captured!

The Bangles aren't really my type of music, but I do like music videos from the late 80's/early 90's. Besides the fashion, the cinematography is pretty interesting. The video is here:
