Beautiful Song

Like many New Mammas out there, I hardly ever get to watch any tv. We’ve never had any DVR, so for my shows, it’s either watch or miss.

It’s gotten so much better. Now that Miguel is two, I actually get to catch my How I Met Your Mother and Big Bang Theory episodes when they go on. If not, I am readily able to steal a moment to watch them on a day after airing. Ahhh…the sweet little things mothers enjoy.

Last night Miguel and I were able to catch a quick glimpse of the results show of Dancing with the Stars, right when Julianne Hough and her Footloose movie co-star Kenny Wormald were about to go on. I am glad we had the tv right when they were about to do their dance. Their performance just blew me away. More so, it made me discover this song, Holding Out for a Hero by Ella Mae Bowen.

I can’t stop listening to it. It turns out it is a ballad remake of the 80’s song of the same title by Bonnie Tyler.

Here are the lyrics…

Holding Out for a Hero

(original by Bonnie Tyler, remake ballad by Ella Mae Bowen)

Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods?
Where’s the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?
Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and turn and dream
of what I need


I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong
And he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the morning light
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life

Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasy
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There’s someone reaching back for me
Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
It’s gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet


Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I could swear that there’s someone somewhere
Watching me

Through the wind and the chill and the rain
And the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach
Like the fire in my blood

I just LOVE the ballad remake!

Here is the DWTS clip of Julianne and Kenny’s dance. I think it will blow you away too.
