Song Lyric Sunday:July 10, 2022 – Not for me thanks, Regrets?

Jim Adams

This week our prompt for Song Lyric Sunday from Jim Adams is: Songs that were turned down by recording artists that went on to become big hits. Jim is Still away so it’s over to Fandango’s .. thank you for hosting Fandango! Sorry I should of put the link to his page in earlier!

I have chosen to go back to 1980. Three years before my last son was born. I had two sons and plenty to keep me busy!

Call me Blondies big hit was first offered to Stevie Nick’s of Fleetwood Mac fame. Okay, this is one song both artists could have rocked. Producer Giorgio Moroder first approached Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks and asked her to help write a song for the 1980 film American Gigolo. After declining, Debbie Harry came on board and the rest, as they say, is history! I for one are delighted by that fact! Yea! Debbie Harry and Blondie!

Color me your color, baby
Color me your car
Color me your color, darling
I know who you are
Come up off your color chart
I know where you’re coming from

Call me (call me) on the line
Call me, call me any, anytime
Call me (call me) I’ll arrive
You can call me any day or night
Call me

Cover me with kisses, baby
Cover me with love
Roll me in designer sheets
I’ll never get enough
Emotions come, I don’t know why
Cover up love’s alibi

Call me (call me) on the line
Call me, call me any, anytime
Call me (call me) I’ll arrive
When you’re ready we can share the wine
Call me

Oooh, he speaks the languages of love
Oooh, amore, chiamami, chiamami
Oooh, appelle-moi mon cheri, appelle-moi
Anytime, anyplace, anywhere, any way
Anytime, anyplace, anywhere, any day, any way

Call me

Take me out and show me off
And put me on the scene
Dress me in the fashions of the 1980’s
You’re a man, no in-between
You know what your words can mean

Call me (call me) my love
Call me, call me and we’ll take a ride
Call me (call me) on the line
Call me, call me in to overtime
Call me

Call me (call me) my love
Call me, call me any, anytime
Call me (call me) for a ride
Call me, call me for some overtime
Call me (call me) in my life
Call me, call me in a sweet design
Call me (call me), call me for your lover’s lover’s alibi
Call me (call me) on the line
Call me, call me any, anytime

Call me, ah-ha, call me, ah-ha-ha
Call me, ah-ha-ha, call me any day or night
Call me, ooh-ooh-ah-ha-ha, ooh-ooh-ha-ha-ha
Call me, ah-ah-ooh
Call me, my, my, my sleek design
Call me for a ride, call me inside
Call me, ah-ha, call me, ah-ha
Call me
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ah-ah-ah

Call me (call me) my love
Call me, call me any, anytime
Call me (call me) for a ride
Call me, call me for some overtime
Call me (call me) in my life
Call me, call me in a sweet design
Call me (call me), call me for your lover’s lover’s alibi
Call me (call me) on the line
Call me, call me any, anytime
Call me (call me)
Ooh, call me, mmm-hhmm
Call me (call me) my love

Happy Sunday Everyone 💜🖐️

Author: willowdot21

Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and hopefully in to light ?? I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well. I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

      1. They played Glasgow back in April – rescheduled from 2021 due to Covid. It was such a great show. Definitely one I was pleased to tick off the bucket list! 😊🖤

      2. Excellent good for you I missed Queen and Adam Lambert at the O2 in June…we both got Covid? We’d been waiting for the show for two and half years 🙄💜💜💜
