Act 11
Life … the time for the living to live. One’s life starts when one is born. Shortly thereafter, we are given something that stays with us no matter where we go – a name. Immediately, we are nourished, so we grow physically, mentally, and emotionally from babies into young children … and that’s when we start to dream about our future life. Growth never stops, so from children we move on as teens .. but school is still much of life at this point.

Eventually, we move into adulthood as women and men with many things going on in our life. Whether its work, play, or family,  life can be complicated, so many times we hope for the best. Act 11 is about hope, so song titles must include Hope, Hopes, Hoping, Hoped, Hopeless, or Hopelessly.

Production Note
To prevent browsers crashing from loading too many videos, please 1) include the song title and artist in your text, and 2) paste the URL as part of your last line (not a new line). The latter will provide a link, thus not embed the actual video … but I don’t mind unembedding, so apologies are not necessary.

Legends have started many acts at aFa Productions, and this one is no different. He’s in the building, so ladies …. no screaming … but give an enthusiastic welcome to Elvis Presley with Cross My Heart and Hope to Die.


*** For a bonus clip after the song above, start watching this one at 3:00 minutes.

    • Cynthia,
      Wow … so far this act is loaded with songs that I don’t know (which is fine) … and cheers to the poetry link! … Speaking of links, I fixed it, so thanks for letting me know.


  1. I came back to find out what other music has been posted – and my, I’m a bit like you Frank, there are a number here I have never heard of before. Isn’t it great to get your listening repertoire expanded! For instance, I’d never heard of Shaggy and love that song and the video – that Robin is a wonder isn’t she! I think I’ll pop back again just in case some more get posted 🙂


    • Pauline,
      Never encountered so many songs that I didn’t know. Oh well …. but some very enjoyable ones as well. There is one song that I’m surprised we haven’t seen added, so I may add it in an hour or two … thus we you probably know! … and yes, Robin is a gem!
