Song lyric Sunday. 3/3/19.

This week Jim Adams at NewEpicAuthor told us he had heard from Helen Vahdati. Unfortunately Helen is still unwell and has decided not to take the reins back.

Luckily for us Jim is happy to continue hosting our weekly song prompt. Hooray and thank you Jim.

Rules and Pingback

The prompt for this week is “Occupation”.

Well there are so many and I have had a really hard job on deciding what to pick .

Before I go for my main choice here is my favourite occupation song of all time. Wichita Lineman . By Glen Campbell. A beautiful self explanatory song about a man doing a dangerous job in harsh conditions and missing home and partner.

Lyrics and who wrote the song all in the video.

Well now here is my main choice The Scientist by Cold play. The video shows the story of the song backwards. Chris Martin had to sing “The Scientist” backwards for the music video, so learned the phonetic movements which made it look like he was singing the words, the singer set about the month long task of studying his lyrics and learning how perform them back to front. It is very well done!

The Scientist”

Come up to meet you, tell you I’m sorry
You don’t know how lovely you are

I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart

Tell me your secrets
And ask me your questions
Oh, let’s go back to the start

Running in circles
Coming up tails
Heads on a science apart

Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard

Oh, take me back to the start

I was just guessing
At numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart

Questions of science
Science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart

Tell me you love me
Come back and haunt me
Oh, and I rush to the start

Running in circles
Chasing our tails
Coming back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
Oh, it’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard

I’m going back to the start

Oh [x4]

    It is kind of funny, but just a few days ago I was thinking about the Wichita Lineman song and I want to thank you for adding it today. I love the Cold Play “Arou” sounds in this song.

    I have learned to love and appreciate the music of Chris Martin. And I had forgotten about Wichita Lineman. Thanks for the shares.

    Sad about Glen’s passing. Alzheimer’s is a cruel disease.

    I’ve heard this Cold Play song before but never watched the video. This time I watched it twice!!

    Great picks!!

      I think Cold Play are definitely one of the better groups around. So you had never heard the Wichita Lineman before, it is indeed a beautiful song 💜

    Love the Glenn Campbell song Wichita Lineman!
    The Cold Play song was really good, too, and the way you mentioned he did the video is really interesting. Fun to watch the video. 🙂
