Oh, I don’t care, I gotta celebrate the moment
Gotta own it before it blows away, blows away
Oh, beat my snare, I got a burning in my heart when it’s dark
Can you feel the flame, feel the flame

But there’s a part of me
That used to go and hide in peace
But now I’m touching the ceiling
I’ve found something to believe in
And now all I see, so many possibilities
But now I’m touching the ceiling
I’ve found something to believe in

But oh, I got a feeling that tonight is on my side
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)
Oh, I got a feeling that I’m gonna be alright
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)
There’s nothing better than to hear the sound, hear the sound
The sound of thunder when I hit the ground
Oh, I got a feeling that tonight is on my side
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)

Step by step, I got power in the way that I walk
And I’m here to stay, here to stay
And I feel so high, like a rocket in the sky
And I got nothing in my way, in my way

But there’s a part of me
That used to go and hide in peace
But now I’m touching the ceiling
I’ve found something to believe in
And now all I see, so many possibilities
But now I’m touching the ceiling
I’ve found something to believe in

But oh, I got a feeling that tonight is on my side
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)
Oh, I got a feeling that I’m gonna be alright
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)
There’s nothing better than to hear the sound, hear the sound
The sound of thunder when I hit the ground
Oh, I got a feeling that tonight is on my side
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)

I’ve got a feeling, I’m shining gold (I’m shining gold)
I’ve got a feeling (I’ve got a feeling)
I’m shining gold (I’m shining gold)
Oh, I got a feeling that tonight is on my side (I’m shining gold)
I’m shining gold
Oh, I got a feeling that I’m gonna be alright
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)

There’s nothing better than to hear the sound, hear the sound
The sound of thunder when I hit the ground
Oh, I got a feeling that tonight is on my side
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)

Next up Silver Lining by Mt. Joy. just a fantastic song .

.

Up on the mountain
Caught on the rail line
Up on the mountain
Caught on the rail line

My brother, let the heart just eat
Drink your wine, smoke your weed
My brother, let the heart still beat

And wear your silver lining
Wear it close to your skin

But if it’s the drugs, the women, the wine, the weed
The love that took everything I own
Just take it oh oh oh
And tell the ones you love you love them
And teach only what you know, and oh
You better know it well

We drove from coast to coast
Down in New Orleans
Where the levees broke

You were tripping
I was driving
You were running
I was hiding
And you know I know how that feels
Don’t get cheated kid
Just sweep from your heels
And if you get carried away
Let the music play you through the pain

And wear that silver lining
Wear it close to your skin

But if it’s the drugs, the women, the wine, the weed
The love that took everything I own
Just take it oh oh oh
And tell the ones you love you love them
Teach only what you know, and oh
You better know it well

Up on the mountain
Caught on the red light
Up on the mountain
Caught on the rail line

Silver Lining lyrics © Mt. Joy Publishing.

Mt. Joy have debuted their new song “Silver Lining,” an attempt by guitarist/vocalist Matt Quinn to find some solace after tragedy — in this case, the friends in his community lost too young to drugs, and the devastation they left behind. It’s a compellingly open-hearted piece of songwriting that exemplifies why Mt. Joy have found such a passionate following in little more than a year as a band.

Mt. Joy is a five-piece indie rock band based in Los Angeles with roots in Philadelphia. They consist of members Matt Quinn (vocals, guitar), Sam Cooper (guitar), Sotiris Eliopoulos (drums), Jackie Miclau (keyboards), and Michael Byrnes (bass). The band debuted in 2016 with their single “Astrovan”, recorded in Los Angeles by Quinn, Cooper, and Byrnes. This was followed up in 2017 by the trio of singles “Sheep”, “Cardinal”, and “Silver Lining”, with “Silver Lining” eventually charting at the top spot of the BillboardTriple A charts. On March 2, 2018, they released their debut eponymous studio album. Between the next two years, Mt. Joy performed at festivals and on tour as support acts, as well as headlining a North American and European tour. After a tour with The Lumineers was cut short due to COVID-19, Mt. Joy released their second studio album, Rearrange Us on June 5, 2020.[

 Their third studio album, Orange Blood, is set to release on June 17, 2022.

Last up is Rich from Maren Morris. I like this song because it’s simply fun and easy listening and fun lyrics!

.

Rich” is a song recorded by American country music singer Maren Morris for her major-label debut album, Hero (2016). Morris co-wrote the song with Jessie Jo Dillon and Laura Veltz, and co-produced the track with busbee. It was released to American country radio on February 12, 2018 through Columbia Nashville as the album’s fourth and final single.

“Rich” blends elements of country music with reggae and hip hop for a sound that “transcends classification.” The song features “laid-back, breezy” vocals in the verses and a “singalong” chorus. Lyrically, the song details ways that a man has done Morris wrong, framed by hypothetical dollar values for these infractions that would result in Morris being rich. According to critics, Morris’s delivery expresses “hip-hop bravado” and a “sly wit” as she toys with unconventional rhymes.

Happy Sunday Everyone 💜.

Song Lyric Sunday Titfa Tatt topknots and Scarves.

Jim Adams

Hello everyone it’s Sunday and time for Song Lyric Sunday, Jim Adams our host to give us the prompt for 15th May this week the prompt is – suggested by Paula of Light Motifs II, and it is Head, Hat, Hair, Scarf

So my first choice is I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair. I do love this song but it was really slammed for it lyrics! By people who should know better,! Perhaps they were just jealous!

‘Thom has been the subject of criticism by many artists within the recording world, most notably from Lily Allenthe Fratellis, and the Automatic.James Frost and Robin Hawkins from The Automatic stated that “If she was a punk rocker with flowers in her hair she’d get the shit kicked out of her by other punk rockers, for having flowers in her hair. […] I haven’t found anyone who’s told me they like that song and bought it.”Charlie Brooker also heavily criticised the intense public relations efforts to make the single popular.

I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker (With Flowers in My Hair)” is the debut single of Scottish singer-songwriter Sandi Thom, released in October 2005. The song was written by Thom and Tom Gilbert. Following a re-release in 2006, the song topped the singles charts of Australia, Ireland, and the United Kingdom.

Thom has said on her website that she wrote the song after being robbed of her mobile phone and other belongings one evening, leaving her completely lost and without any way of contacting her family, friends, or the bank. She says, “I wondered if that had happened to me back in the days of the hippies what would I have done and would I have freaked out so much?”

Although only physically released in the United Kingdom on 22 May 2006, download sales the week before are counted for the purpose of charts, and it achieved number fifteen on this basis in the general charts (and number seven in the download-only chart). The physical release had three formats: two CD versions (one featuring the radio mix and “A Light as Bright as Ours”, another featuring the radio mix, the album mix, a further remix, “May You Never” and the music video), and also as a 7-inch vinyl record backed with Stranglers cover “No More Heroes“.

.


Oh, I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In ’77 and ’69, revolution was in the air
I was born too late into a world that doesn’t care
Oh, I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

When the head of state didn’t play guitar
Not everybody drove a car
When music really mattered and when radio was king
When accountants didn’t have control
And the media couldn’t buy your soul
And computers were still scary and we didn’t know everything

Oh, I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In ’77 and ’69, revolution was in the air
I was born too late into a world that doesn’t care
Oh, I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

When pop stars still remained a myth
And ignorance could still be bliss
And when God save the Queen she turned a whiter shade of pale
When my mom and dad were in their teens
And anarchy was still a dream
And the only way to stay in touch was a letter in the mail

Oh, I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In ’77 and ’69, revolution was in the air
I was born too late into a world that doesn’t care
Oh, I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

When record shops were still on top
And vinyl was all that they stocked
And the super info-highway was still drifting out in space
Kids were wearing hand-me-downs
And playing games meant kick arounds
And footballers still had long hair and dirt across their face

Oh, I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In ’77 and ’69, revolution was in the air
I was born too late into a world that doesn’t care
Oh, I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

I was born too late into a world that doesn’t care
Oh, I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

Okay up next is Hat so let’s have some Brilliant Steely Dan and Fez . The video is a Dr Who clip so The Dr, well two doctors really and Steely Dan I call that a win, win, win 😊

This is the only Steely Dan song with a third credited writer, Paul Griffin, who also plays organ on the song. On a BBC Online chat March 4, 2000, Donald Fagen said, “The Fez was recorded using a rhythm chart but there were a few bars missing and Paul Griffin, the keyboard player on the day, came up with a nice little melody, so we felt we should include him in the writer credits.”

I used the video below because the Fez is the registered trademark of the 10th Dr Who.

No I’m never gonna do it without the fez on
Oh no
No I’m never gonna do it without the fez on
Oh no
That’s what I am
Please understand
I wanna be your holy man

No I’m never gonna do it without the fez on
Oh no
Ain’t never gonna do it without the fez on
Oh no
That’s what I am
Please understand
I wanna be your holy man

No I’m never gonna do it without the fez on
Oh no
Don’t make me do it without the fez on
Oh no
That’s what I am
Please understand
I wanna be your holy man

I could of used Alanis Morrisette’s head over heels bit no let’s go with ABBA and a daft but fun video.

Head Over Heels” is a 1981 song recorded by Swedish pop group ABBA, released as a single the following year. The song is the second track from their eighth studio album, The Visitors.

“Head Over Heels”, whose working title was “Tango”, was written and composed by both Benny Andersson and Björn UlvaeusAgnetha Fältskog sang the lead vocals, singing about her “very good friend”, played in the music video by Anni-Frid Lyngstad, an overactive high-society woman who rushes through the shops, with her hapless and exhausted husband (played by Ulvaeus) following behind and being forced to carry the shopping bags. The song’s video, filmed on 21 January 1982 was the group’s final clip directed by long-time collaborator Lasse Hallström, who cameos as a man the woman bumps into while running around the city.

As with the previous single “One of Us“, Epic Records in the UK used a different picture sleeve from the standard one used in most countries.

The single itself was not released in the United States; it was accompanied as the B-side to another single “The Visitors” instead.

The sheet music has been released, and the song has been choreographed for dance numbers.

ABBA filmed a video for Head Over Heels in Stockholm which was directed by Lasse Hallström. It is the group’s only music video where the director makes an appearance; Hallström is the pedestrian who Frida bumps into on the street. The action in the video is taken directly from the text; where Frida portrays a woman who rushes through shops with her tired husband in tow (played by Ulvaeus).

I have a very good friend
The kind of girl who likes to follow a trend
She has a personal style
Some people like it, others tend to go wild

You hear her voice everywhere
Taking the chair
She’s a leading lady
And with no trace of hesitation she keeps going

Head over heels
Breaking her way
Pushing through unknown jungles every day
She’s a girl with a taste for the world
(The world is like a playing ground where she goes rushing)
Head over heels
Setting the pace
Running the gauntlet in a whirl of lace
She’s extreme, if you know what I mean

Her man is one I admire
He’s so courageous but he’s constantly tired
Each time when he speaks his mind
She pats his head and says, “That’s all very fine”

“Exert that will of your own
When you’re alone
Now we’d better hurry”
And with no trace of hesitation she keeps going

Head over heels
Breaking her way
Pushing through unknown jungles every day
She’s a girl with a taste for the world
(The world is like a playing ground where she goes rushing)
Head over heels
Setting the pace
Running the gauntlet in a whirl of lace
She’s extreme, if you know what I mean

You hear her voice everywhere
Taking the chair
She’s a leading lady
And with no trace of hesitation she keeps going

Head over heels
Breaking her way
Pushing through unknown jungles every day
She’s a girl with a taste for the world
(The world is like a playing ground where she goes rushing)
Head over heels
Setting the pace
Running the gauntlet in a whirl of lace
She’s extreme, if you know what I mean

And she goes
Head over heels

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 14, 2022

Its Saturday again and time for us all to join in Linda’s SoCs. The prompt is week is :Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “hat.” Use it literally or metaphorically. Have fun!

.

He entered the bar, his hat down over one eye. He looked the part and he new it. She was sitting at the bar red dress red shoes and hat.
Mentally he threw his hat into the ring as he approached her and asked if could buy her a drink.
She smiled and accpected, “keep this under your hat” she whispered “I am looking for adventure.” Her eyes twinkled as she cocked her head to one side the brim of her hat framing her small face and huge eyes.
“Well” he said looking into her eyes “it so happens I am too!”
He ordered two whiskey and dry and she suductively ate some olives.
Someone put some music on the jukebox it was Hats off to Larry, followed by Wherever I lay my hat.
After they had finished their drinks she whispered in his ear, “I know a place we can go.”
“Now” he asked, a gleam in his eye, “yes” she winked.
Tipping his hat to the barman he took her arm, she looked amazing from the toes of her red stilettos to the curve of her dress to the red feather on her hat.
As they stepped out onto the street they both smiled and said together, “You can keep your hat on.” Then as fast as they could Mr and Mrs Day walked home.

#TankaTuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 273, 5/10/22, #SpecificForm

Last month, Colleen asked Sally Cronin to select a syllabic form for us to learn more about. Her choice was the Butterfly Cinquain.

We have been given a video to take inspiration from, either from the video or the music. Well both inspired me so it’s a combination of both.

Butterfly 🦋 blue.

In blue
Wings fluttering
Twirling she carries dreams.
Bewitched her prince sees only her
Cosmic
They take flight out into the blue
Wishes and dreams she grants
Happy ending
In blue

Let me go boys, let me go
Push my bone from the highest cliff to the sea below
Rocks are waiting boys, rocks are waiting
Swoop down from the sky and catch me like the bird to prey

Now my feet won’t touch the ground
Now my head won’t stop
You wait a lifetime to be found
Now my feet won’t touch the ground

Singing now my feet won’t touch the ground
Now my head won’t stop
You wait a lifetime to be found
Now my feet won’t touch the ground

Now my feet won’t touch the ground

Now for shoes I picked Crocodile Shoes by Jimmy Nail. Jimmy Nail is a singer and actor and he is one of my favourite artists.

Crocodile Shoes is an album by Jimmy Nail consisting of “original songs from the BBC Television serial” of the same name. It was released in 1994 by East West Records and peaked at number two on the UK Albums Chart. It was the Christmas number two album that year.

Crocodile Shoes is a British 13-part television drama set across two series and was made by the BBC. It was screened on BBC1 in 1994 (Series 1) and in 1996 (Series 2).

The first series, comprising seven episodes, was written by and starred Jimmy Nail as a factory worker who becomes a country and western singer. The show’s eponymous theme tune “Crocodile Shoes” became a chart hit for Nail, as did the album of the same name.

A sequel, comprising six episodes, Crocodile Shoes II, followed in 1996 and the theme tune “Country Boy” was a hit for Nail too.

Paddy McAloon of Prefab Sprout supplied five original songs to the two series, all of them recorded by Jimmy Nail.

The series was re-screened on UK channel, Drama, in February 2016.

Now for socks! “Eleanor Rigby” is a song by the English rock band the Beatles from their 1966 album Revolver. It was also issued on a double A-side single, paired with “Yellow Submarine“. The song was written primarily by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon–McCartney “Eleanor Rigby” continued the transformation of the Beatles from a mainly rock and roll– and pop-oriented act to a more experimental, studio-based band. With a double string quartet arrangement by George Martin and lyrics providing a narrative on loneliness, it broke sharply with popular music conventions, both musically and lyrically. The song topped singles charts in Australia, Belgium, Canada and New Zealand.

My favourite version is not by the Beatles though it’s by Cody Fry. Cody Fry is a Grammy-nominated American singer, songwriter, composer and producer based in Nashville.Cody Fry.

Cody Fry is the son of orchestral composer Gary Fry. He graduated from New Trier High School in 2008 and then moved to Nashville to study voice at Belmont University.

Fry was one of 48 final contestants on the 14th season of American Idol.

In 2021, his song “I Hear a Symphony” went viral on TikTok. The same year, his cover of “Eleanor Rigby” was nominated for a Grammy in the category of “Best Arrangement, Instrumental and Vocals”.

.

Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby
Picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window
Wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Father McKenzie
Writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear
No one comes near
Look at him working
Darning his socks in the night when there’s nobody there
What does he care?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby
Died in the church and was buried along with her name
Nobody came
Father McKenzie
Wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave
No one was saved

All the lonely people (ah, look at all the lonely people)
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people (ah, look at all the lonely people)
Where do they all belong?

“Big For Your Boots”

You’re getting way too big for your boots

Kick up the yout

Your face ain’t big for my boot
Kick up the yout

Dem boy dere tried twist up the truth
How dare you twist up the truth

Wanna come round here like a badboy? Do it
Bun all the talking, go on then, do it
Running through the party, bottle of BACARDÍ
Bro’s in my ear saying “Stormz, don’t do it”
Devil on my shoulder, I don’t lack
Hit ’em with a crowbar, I don’t scrap
Even when I’m sober, I’m so gassed
Say you ride but there’s no car and no mash (what you talking ’bout?)
Clown, stand down
Never had a MAC-10 or a trey pound
You were never bad then, you ain’t bad now
Never had the MAC then, little nigga, back down
Wait, I saw bare kicks, saw bare clothes
Said fuck that, I can’t wear those
I don’t like them, they’re not my ting
They went silent, they’re all weirdos
Like yeah, Stormz gone clear
Never had a Tom Ford or a Moncler
Mandem are calm, but you see my don there?
Fuckries, tell ’em don’t do it, don’t dare
Don’t care who you know from my block
You’re not Al Capone, you’ll get boxed
They can take my car and my creps
I’ll still do the road in my socks
Like who’s gonna stop me? You? Him?
Weed in a cigarette, blue slims
Don’t be an idiot, move smart
I’ve been killing it, new king
Niggas ain’t ready for my new stuff
You’re a prick by yourself, go and group up
And when Krept went States for the BETs
I was covering Krept like a bootcut
Ith mad, that’s a family ting, straight family ting
Dem man are broke, no salary ting
Had a peng ting called Amy
Telling me to come round hers on a Valerie ting
#Merky, academy ting
Coming like art in a gallery ting
Dem boy dere wanna chat about bars
Wanna chat about crud but, but, but

You’re getting way too big for your boots
You’re never too big for the boot
I got the big size twelves on my feet
Your face ain’t big for my boot
Kick up the yout
Man know that I kick up the yout
Dem boy dere tried twist up the truth
How dare you twist up the truth, look

I’m too hot
Drug money in my shoebox
I’m the man of the house and my shows sold out
Like the brudda from the Boondocks
Beats 1 in my boombox
Still steal meat from the stew pot
Mandem go sick when my tune drops
Little man, that’s a Hublot, not a Hublot
What? Pronounce it right, you prick
I go mad, yeah, I’m down to die for this
I don’t care, bro, I’m down to pipe your chick
Mad stressed so I’m bound to light my spliffs
Wait, I’m bound to ride for Flipz
Real Gs gonna ride around to this
Man, I’ve got no time to write a diss
I never left my 9 to 5 for this
Wasteman ting
I don’t care what rave man’s in
I came here to relax but if it gets mad
Mek a young boy take man’s tings
Try tell me I’m way too big to rebel?
Nah, man, you’re never too big to rebel
I was in the O2 singing my lungs out
Rudeboy, you’re never too big for Adele
Leave my yard, blow a kiss to my girl
Salute to my sister as well
Gotta keep trophies down at my mum’s bit
Man, I’m getting way too big for my shelf
Man, I see bare MCs wanna sideline
But I still got a couple bangers in the pipeline
Man, I’ve got grown men @ing me bullshit
You’re getting way too old for the timeline
You’re getting way too old for a diss
Should’ve looked after your kids
Get out the booth, go home to your son
It’s never too late to commit
It’s like man love put my name in a bar
Random flight, get a plane to Qatar
This year, I learnt how to take care of business
Next year, I’ll learn how to play the guitar

You’re getting way too big for your boots
You’re never too big for the boot
I got the big size twelves on my feet
Your face ain’t big for my boot
Kick up the yout
Man know that I kick up the yout
Dem boy dere tried twist up the truth
How dare you twist up the truth, look
You’re getting way too big for your boots
You’re never too big for the boot
I got the big size twelves on my feet
Your face ain’t big for my boot
Kick up the yout
Man know that I kick up the yout
Dem boy dere tried twist up the truth
How dare you twist up the truth

Mum loved show music, South Pacific, Oklahoma and Carousel. Brothers and sisters loved, Pat Boon, Frank Iflield, Dusty Springfield, Bobby Vee, Buddy Holly, Adam Faith, Jonny Mathis, Helen Shipiro ect.

Loved Adam Faith.

So, so, love Buddy Holly, Adam Faith in fact all my siblings music, it took years to stop rebelling and finally appreciate classical and opera!
