Song Lyric Sunday.Noise.

It’s Sunday again and time for Jim Adams to give us our prompt for Song lyric Sunday. Today’s prompt is Listen/Hear/Talk/Speak.

My first thought was, I don’t want to talk about it by Rod Stewart but then I thought no let’s go for a real beauty. So out of my favourites I have chosen three

Firstly I chose the enigmatic Jon and Vangelis . I hear you now ūüíú

Jon and Vangelis was a collaborative effort between the singer Jon Anderson (the lead vocalist of the progressive rock band Yes) and the Greek synthesiser musician Vangelis. The duo released four albums between 1980 and 1991.

They recorded their first album together,¬†Short Stories¬†in 1979, producing the major hit “I Hear You Now” as well as “One More Time”. Anderson wrote the lyrics and Vangelis composed the music. In 1980, Jon left Yes and while he published his third solo album¬†Song of Seven¬†in 1980, Vangelis did the same with¬†See You Later¬†on which Jon sang two songs. The two reunited to record their second album as a duo¬†Friends of Mr Cairo¬†in 1981, producing the hit songs “Friends of Mr Cairo”, “State of Independence” ,”Back to School” and the U.K. top 10 hit “I’ll Find My Way Home”. In 1983, Jon Anderson got back with Yes and they published their album¬†90125, and so did Jon & Vangelis with their own album¬†Private Collection¬†the same year. More information at Wikipedia

Then going back to my childhood I remembered, Listen to me by Buddy Holly. My brother John loved Buddy Holly and Adam Faith so I grew up hearing a lot more of Buddy Holly’s music than if it had been left to my other siblings. There is a line in the song that says. “Listen to me hear what I say” two for one!

Charles Hardin Holley¬†(September 7, 1936¬†‚Äď February 3, 1959), known professionally as¬†Buddy Holly, was an American musician and singer-songwriter who was a central and pioneering figure of mid-1950s¬†rock and roll. He was born in¬†Lubbock, Texas, to a musical family during the¬†Great Depression, and learned to play guitar and sing alongside his siblings. His style was influenced by¬†gospel music,¬†country music, and¬†rhythm and blues¬†acts, which he performed in Lubbock with his friends from high school.

And finally Imogen Heap’s Telemiscomunication, featuring Deadmau5. Which is all about the prompt.

Joel Thomas Zimmerman (born January 5, 1981),[2] known professionally as Deadmau5 (stylized as deadmau5; pronounced “dead mouse”), is a Canadian electronic music producer, DJ, and musician. Zimmerman mainly produces progressive house music and sometimes other forms of electronic music. His works have been included in compilation albums such as Ti√ęsto‘s In Search of Sunrise 6: Ibiza and presented on Armin van Buuren‘s A State of Trance radio show. More information here.

Imogen Jennifer Heap born 9 December 1977) is an English singer-songwriter, record producer and audio engineer. Born in the London Borough of Havering, Heap became classically trained in piano, cello and clarinet at a young age. She began writing songs at the age of 13 and, while attending boarding school, taught herself both guitar and drums, as well as music production on Atari computers. Heap signed to independent record label Almo Sounds at the age of 18 and later began working with experimental pop band Acacia, alongside Guy Sigsworth, as a frequent guest vocalist.

Hey babe, how’s your day been?
No, you first.
Oh, what, the day’s quite bad?
Yeah, sorry

Where are you, I can hardly hear you
A taxi distracted, anyway you, you were saying
Wait, uh, love, they’re waving me over
Can I call you back, yeah everything’s fine
Why, am I, I don’t know why
I probably just need sleep, it’s been a busy week
Sorry, I’ve got to go
Sorry, OK, bye

This is just so unlike us
Come back to horizontal isms
If we could win just one small touch
Contact versus tele-miscommunications

Plan foiled, the sirens pass by
Kids screaming, the longest predicaments
Reach ticket, finally got through
Running for a flight, shoes off
You’re calling voicemail

In joke, group laughter
Closing scenes, in a meeting
Angel, angel why didn’t you tell me

One second, someone needs directions
Can’t you see I’m on the phone?

This is just so unlike us
Come back to horizontal isms
If we could win just one small touch
Contact versus tele-miscommunications

So unlike us (unlike us)
Come back to horizontal isms
If we could win just one small touch
Contact versus tele-miscommunications

(Get better)
Did I tell you, I loved you today?
(Get better)
Did I tell you, I loved you today?
(Get better)
Did I tell you, I loved you today? (did I)

(Get better)
Did I tell you, I loved you today?
(Get better)
Did I tell you, I loved you today?
(Get better)
Did I tell you, I loved you today? (did I)

Sorry I am late again, have a great Sunday Everyone.ūüíú
