It’s ridiculous but today I just can’t concentrate, nothing is coming into my brain for this prompt and it’s such a good prompt.

Well hubby and I have stinking colds, sore throats and coughs, plus I have chest and stomach and back ache too. I feel it would be ridiculous to keep going as it has taken me three hours to write this ridiculous post. So I am giving up now and having a rest , I hope to be back tomorrow. We have both taken LFTs and we are negative thank goodness. 💜💜💜

Song Lyric Sunday. Arm yourself!

Jim Adams

It’s Sunday again and time for our prompt from Jim Adams for Song Lyric Sunday January 16, 2022 – Bomb, Gun, Knife, Weapon.

First up Zombie…. featuring the lyrics bombs and Guns. The Cranberries are a brilliant group .

Zombie” is a protest song by Irish alternative rock band the Cranberries, written by the band’s lead singer Dolores O’Riordan in memory of Johnathan Ball and Tim Parry, who were killed in the 1993 Warrington bombings. It was released on 19 September 1994 as the lead single from their second studio album, No Need to Argue, two weeks ahead of the album’s release. Music critics have long recognised “Zombie” as “a masterpiece of alternative rock”.

“Zombie” reached No. 1 on the charts of Australia, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany and Iceland, as well as on the US Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. The song was voted by Australian radio Triple J listeners as No. 1 on the Triple J Hottest 100, 1994 chart. It won the Best Song Award at the 1995 MTV Europe Music Awards.

In 2017, the song was released as an acoustic, stripped-down version on the band’s Something Else album. In April 2020, it became the first song by an Irish band to surpass one billion views on YouTube. As of May 2021, Zombie has been streamed over 670 million times on Spotify and as of December 2021, has sold 778,942 copies in the United Kingdom.

During the Troubles, more than 3,500 people died and tens of thousands were injured in more than 30 years of the complex and often brutal conflict.The IRA, which was devoted both to removing British forces from Northern Ireland and to unifying Ireland, killed almost 2,000 people during this time. During this time, over 10,000 bomb attacks were perpetrated in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Great Britain, in an armed conflict fought between the Provisional IRA, the Ulster loyalist paramilitaries, and the British security forces.

The song was written in response to the death of Johnathan Ball, 3, and Tim Parry, 12, who had been killed in the IRA bombing in Warrington, northwest England, when two devices hidden in litter bins were detonated. Ball died at the scene of the bombing as a result of his shrapnel-inflicted injuries and, five days later, Parry lost his life as a result of head injuries. 56 others were injured, some seriously. Parry died in his father’s arms in Liverpool‘s Walton hospital. The two boys had gone shopping to buy Mother’s Day cards on one of the town’s busiest shopping streets.

“There were a lot of bombs going off in London and I remember this one time a child was killed when a bomb was put in a rubbish bin – that’s why there’s that line in the song, ‘A child is slowly taken’. We were on a tour bus and I was near the location where it happened, so it really struck me hard – I was quite young, but I remember being devastated about the innocent children being pulled into that kind of thing. So I suppose that’s why I was saying, ‘It’s not me’ – that even though I’m Irish it wasn’t me, I didn’t do it. Because being Irish, it was quite hard, especially in the UK when there was so much tension.”— Dolores O’Riordan in 2017, on writing “Zombie”.

Another head hangs lowly
Child is slowly taken
And the violence, caused such silence
Who are we mistaken?But you see, it’s not me
It’s not my family
In your head, in your head, they are fighting
With their tanks, and their bombs
And their bombs, and their guns
In your head, in your head they are cryingIn your head, in your head
Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie
What’s in your head, in your head
Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie, ohDo, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, doAnother mother’s breaking
Heart is taking over
When the violence causes silence
We must be mistakenIt’s the same old theme
Since nineteen-sixteen
In your head, in your head, they’re still fighting
With their tanks, and their bombs
And their bombs, and their guns
In your head, in your head, they are dyingIn your head, in your head
Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie
What’s in your head, in your head
Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, ay, oh, ya yaSource: LyricFindSongwriters: Dolores Mary O’RiordanZombie lyrics © Warner Chappell Music, Inc.


Love like a bomb from the Brilliant Oasis!

Don’t Believe the Truth is the sixth studio album by English rock band Oasis. It was released on 30 May 2005 by Big Brother Recordings. It reached number one in the UK Albums Chart with first week sales of 237,865, and is the 32nd fastest selling album ever in the UK. The album entered the US charts at number 12, with 65,000 copies sold in the first week, the highest any Oasis album had reached there since 1997’s Be Here Now, although its chart stay was brief. Don’t Believe the Truth went triple platinum in the UK in the first week of 2006 (900,000+ sales), and in the US has sold more than 200,000 copies.

As with the previous album, Don’t Believe The Truth had significant writing contributions from members other than chief songwriter Noel Gallagher, and the album is the first where all duties were divided between the band members. On some of the tracks regular bass player Andy Bell handled guitar, while Gem Archer and Noel Gallagher contributed bass to other songs. Don’t Believe the Truth is the first Oasis record to feature the drumming of Zak Starkey, an auxiliary member of Oasis, who performed and toured with them following the departure of longtime drummer Alan White, and appeared on the DVD praising all members’ contributions. The album received positive reviews from critics, and many cited it as Oasis’s best album in a decade.

Liam Gallagher also had a larger impact on the album through his developing songwriting. Noel has said that the album is his favourite of Oasis’ last four, because all members contributed to it. This, he claims, has given it a different feel from a typically Noel-written Oasis album.

The band embarked on a massive worldwide tour that started off at the London Astoria for their Don’t Believe the Truth Tour, visiting 26 countries and playing to 3.2 million people at a total of 113 concerts. This resulted in the making of Lord Don’t Slow Me Down, a film later released on DVD. To date, the album has sold more than six million copies worldwide.

Love like a bomb is track 4 and written by Liam Gallagher and Gem Archer.

Weapon of Choice” is a song by English big beat musician Fatboy Slim from his third studio album, Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars. It features American funk musician Bootsy Collins.

The single peaked at No. 10 on the UK Singles Chart.

The music video, directed by Spike Jonze, features actor Christopher Walken dancing around a deserted hotel lobby. It won multiple awards at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards and won the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Music Video.

Cuts Like a Knife is the third studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams. Released on 18 January 1983 by A&M Records, the album was a huge commercial success in the United States and Canada, whereas in the UK and other countries, it sold poorly. After the release of Adams’ fourth album Reckless in late 1984, the album would chart on the British album chart and would later be certified Silver by the BPI. It was recorded at Little Mountain SoundVancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Three singles were released worldwide from the album: “Straight from the Heart“, “Cuts Like a Knife” and “This Time“; the three were responsible for launching Adams into mainstream popularity. A further two singles were released in specific territories.
