Song Lyric Sunday. Heaven/ Hell.

Today is Sunday and so it’s time for Jim Adams to give us the prompt for Song Lyric Sunday 9th May, 2021 – Heaven/Hell suggested by Amy, Aisasami.

I picked Seal singing This could be heaven , simply because I love it!

This Could Be Heaven” is a song Seal recorded in the year 2000 for his fourth album Togetherland.

The album was scrapped after it was rejected by his record company as they believed the album would not be commercially successful. “This Could Be Heaven” is the only song from the album that was officially released as it was included on the soundtrack for the film The Family Man. The song was released as a single in support of the soundtrack in 2001.

There are two versions, with five different edits of the final version circulating. The first version is an early recording that runs for 3:30, with a more simple arrangement and different chords. More information at Wiki.

We should be right here
Get through all this fear
One of these days ‘Cuz when it comes around
We should be right here
One of these days This could be heaven
This could be heaven Living for the part
Giving from the heart
Now and forever But if we let it wait too long
What we have is gone
Memory only This could be heaven
Maybe we can start a life today
This could be heaven
Love instead of throwing it all away
This could be heaven Whoever thought we would get this far
Trying for all these years
The thought that we would fade away
Is more then I could bear I would do anything if you would stay
If you’d stay say
We should be right here
Get through all this fear
One of these days This could be heaven Turning it all for human kind
With you by my side, say This could be heaven Sure we can decide to run away
But we run away from all this here, when This could be heaven All
This could be heaven Hey heaven, baby
This could be heaven Heaven
(Heaven baby, heaven baby)
This could be heaven
(Hey yes, ah yeah, yeah)’Cus I know you’ll call, I know you’ll call
This could be heaven
Heaven this could be Nah na na, nah nah
This could be heaven, this could be heaven
This could be heaven, this could be heaven One of these days
One of these days Source: MusixmatchSongwriters: Seal Samuel / Dave Palmer / Guy Gershoni.

What the Hell” is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne from her fourth studio album, Goodbye Lullaby (2011). It was released on 10 January 2011 by RCA Records as the lead single from the album. The song was produced by Max Martin and Shellback, who co-wrote the song with Lavigne. According to Lavigne, she wrote the song as her “personal message for freedom”. More information here.

Song Lyric Sunday, Fix / Make.

Hi everyone it’s Sunday again and Jim Adams our lovely host has given us a double prompt this week. The prompt is actually Fix/Make suggested by Amy Aisasami.

In 1962 I was nine years old. I remember my brother’s playing their music in their room of an evening. Being the youngest I was always first to bed. I would lie there and listen to my brother’s playing their music. Especially Adam Faith, there was something about his voice that haunted me then and still does to this day! I can’t find the lyrics to this song. But almost every verses line starts with Make her. EG.

Mix me a person make her of sunshine and roses

Terence Nelhams Wright (23 June 1940 – 8 March 2003), known as Adam Faith, was an English teen idol, singer, actor and financial journalist. He was one of the most charted acts of the 1960s. He became the first UK artist to lodge his initial seven hits in the Top 5. He was also one of the first UK acts to record original songs regularly.

While pursuing his musical career, Faith appeared in supporting roles in films such as Beat Girl (1960) and Never Let Go (1960), and television dramas such as the Rediffusion/ITV series No Hiding Place. In 1961, Faith starred in What a Whopper, supported by Sid JamesSpike MilliganWilfrid BrambellCarole Lesley and others well known at the time. A comedy about a writer staging a fake sighting of the Loch Ness Monster, it was written by Terry Nation, and had music by John Barry; Faith sang the title song and “The Time Has Come”. He had a bit part role in What a Carve Up! (1961) with Sid James and Kenneth Connor.

In 1962, Faith co-starred opposite Donald Sinden and Anne Baxter in the film Mix Me a Person, playing a working-class youth falsely accused of murder. The thriller was rated X-certificate (the modern equivalent would be a UK 18-certificate) by the British Board of Film Censors.

Following Faith’s 1968 departure from his record label EMI, he concentrated on acting, particularly repertory theatre. After a number of small parts, he was given a more substantial role in the play Night Must Fall, playing opposite Dame Sybil Thorndike. In autumn 1969, he took the lead in a touring production of Billy Liar.

Faith starred as the eponymous hero in the early 1970s television series Budgie (LWT/ITV), about an ex-convict. He was the subject of This Is Your Life in 1971 when he was surprised by Eamonn Andrews.

Faith’s acting career declined after a 1973 motor car accident in which he almost lost a leg. He restarted with a role in Stardust (1974) as the manipulative manager of rock star David Essex, for which he was nominated for a BAFTA award. Despite this success, he remained reluctant to act for some years, and turned back to music-related ventures.

In 1980, he starred with Roger Daltrey in McVicar, and again played a rock band manager in Foxes, starring Jodie Foster as his daughter.

Faith played the role of James Crane in the 1985 TV movie Minder on the Orient Express – part of the Minder franchise. From 1992 to 1994, he appeared in another TV series, Love Hurts, starring with Zoë Wanamaker.

In 2002, he appeared in the BBC series The House That Jack Built. In 2003, he appeared in an episode of Murder in Mind.

******

Now I have told you how much Adam Faith’s voice and songs haunted me as a child..here is a singer songwriter who haunts me as a grown up.

Fix You” is a song by the British rock band Coldplay. It was written by all four members of the band for their third studio album, X&Y (2005). It was released on 5 September 2005 as the second single from X&Y and reached number 4 on the UK Singles Chart. The song reached number 18 in the United States Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks. Promo singles were released for the UK and US.

The song was started by Chris Martin to comfort his then-wife, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who he met in late 2002 after her father died. The track is built around an organ accompanied by piano and guitar in the first half and an alternative rock style in the second half featuring electric guitar, bass and drums. The hopeful message of the song, and its two-part acoustic/anthemic arrangement, was critically acclaimed. The song has been performed at memorials such as by Coldplay at the One Love Manchester benefit concert in 2017.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 17, 2021

Badge by Shelley Krupa.

Its Saturday again and time for Stream of Consciousness Saturday! This week LindaGhill, our lovely host has said. “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mash.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Smash is a brand of Instant mashed potatoes in the United Kingdom. It was launched in the United Kingdom in the 1960s by Cadbury, which was primarily a manufacturer of confectionery at the time. Smash was reasonably successful.

However, it was not until 1974 that Smash became popular in the convenience food market after Cadbury launched an advertising campaign by agency Boase Massimi Pollitt featuring the Smash Martians, who would watch humans preparing mashed potato the traditional way on television instead of using potato granules, and laugh at them.

The adverts of 1970s and their catchphrase, ‘For Mash get Smash’, were voted television advert of the century by Campaign Magazine, and second-best television advert of all time in a poll of April 2000 conducted by The Sunday Times and Channel 4, beaten by Guinness‘ Surfer advertisement from 1999.

The brand has since been sold by Cadbury and is now owned by Premier Foods who, using their Batchelors brand, launched a ‘healthier recipe’ version in 2006. More information here.

You can buy it still and lots of people love it! Personally I can’t stand it ….it has to be real potato for me especially Mash!

*******

Then there is the song and dance from Dee Dee Sharp.

Mashed Potato Time” is a single written and composed by Kal Mann and Bernie Lowe, and performed by Dee Dee Sharp on her debut album It’s Mashed Potato Time. The song refers to the Mashed Potato dance move which was a fad at the time. It was one of several that came out at that time, for example, “(Do the) Mashed Potatoes” in 1960. The Marvelettes song “Please Mr. Postman” is mentioned in the lyrics and is copied in the arrangement. Also mentioned in the lyrics, are the songs “Lion Sleeps Tonight” by the Tokens, and “Dear Lady Twist”, by Gary US Bonds. Dee Dee Sharp did a follow up sequel to “Mashed Potato Time”, with “Gravy” (On the Mashed Potato). In 1996 the Campbell Soup Company used the song in a $30 million advertising campaign, and commissioned a new, more upbeat recording from Dee Dee Sharp.

Well now we need to bring in a video clip to bring together, the Smash / Mash the food, and the Smash hit and dance Mash potato time.. a MASH UP shall we say?

Happy Saturday Everyone.

Song Lyric Sunday: Concise.

Oh! My goodness Jim you have thrown the cat among the pigeons today. There are so many choices …. The prompt this week is songs that have single word titles! Well there are so many great ones to choose from that I am in a tizzie!

So I decided to go for my favourite artist Imogen Heap.

My first choice was Thriller, yes the Michael Jackson song. I love this version by Immie, it’s so different to the Michael Jackson version.

Thriller” is a song recorded by American recording artist Michael Jackson, composed by Rod Temperton, and produced by Quincy Jones. It is the seventh and final single from his sixth studio album of the same name. It was released on November 12, 1983 in most countries and January 23, 1984 in the United States by Epic Records. The song has appeared on multiple greatest hits compilation albums from Jackson, including HIStory (1995), Number Ones (2003), The Essential Michael Jackson (2005), and Michael Jackson’s This Is It (2009), and it was remixed to the Immortal album in 2011.

“Thriller” has been covered by multiple recording artists since its release in 1984, including Henry Mancini (with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra), Ian BrownTen Masked Men, and Imogen Heap. Information from here.

It’s close to midnight and something evil’s lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
You’re paralyzed’

Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one’s gonna save you from the beast about strike
You know it’s thriller, thriller night
You’re fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

You hear the door slam and realize there’s nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand and wonder if you’ll ever see the sun
You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination, girl!
But all the while you hear the creature creeping up behind
You’re out of time ‘Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain’t no second chance against the thing with forty eyes, girl
Thriller, thriller night
You’re fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight Night creatures calling, the dead start to walk in their masquerade
There’s no escaping the jaws of the alien this time
(They’re open wide)
This is the end of your life They’re out to get you, there’s demons closing in on every side
They will possess you unless you change that number on your dial
Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together, yeah
All through the night I’ll save you from the terror on the screen
I’ll make you see That this is thriller, thriller night
‘Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try
Thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a
Killer, diller, chiller, thriller here tonight ‘Cause this is thriller, thriller night
Girl, I can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try
Thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, thriller, ow!Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y’alls neighborhood I’m gonna thrill ya tonight, ooh baby
I’m gonna thrill ya tonight, oh darlin’
Thriller night, baby, ooh!The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist

I Megaphone is the debut studio album by British singer-songwriter Imogen Heap. It was released on 16 June 1998 by Almo Sounds, and later re-released in Japan by Aozora Records on 23 January 2002. The album was primarily written by Heap, starting when she was 15 years old, with co-writing from Guy Sigsworth and Fil Eisler. It was first produced and recorded solely by Heap and Dave Stewart, and it was subsequently re-recorded alongside producers David Kahne and Guy Sigsworth. It is an alternative rock record with largely confessional lyricism, addressing themes ranging from adolescent drug use and revenge to perseverance and religion. The album’s title is an anagram of “Imogen Heap”

Shine was track two on Imegaphone the album was not a huge success but I always loved it 💜💜.

Rain drain my play away
Sun gun me down and burn me
Nature hates me today
My head distorts reality

Madness just moved into my shadow

Shine, I will not cry and I will not die not
Shine, I will be there for me
Shine, I will not cry and I will be mine
I’ll shine, shine Who waltzed me into this
Am I now stuck here forever
Luck just gave me a kiss
Then lashed me down with a leather strap

Trying to learn to swim without any water
Trying just to begin just when
You’re in for the slaughter, yeah

Shine, I will not cry and I will not die no
Shine, I will be there for me
Shine, I’ll be just fine if I stay all mine
I’ll shine, shine,Shine, I will not cry and I will not die no
Shine, I will be there for me
Shine, I’ll be just fine if I stay all mine
I’ll shine, Shines
You… Musixmatch

The two above songs were early songs of my heroine Immie, and I played them a lot when I was in hospital after breaking my back for the second time, she got me through operations, pain , fear and then afterwards while learning to walk again.

Below is Fountain a video collaboration between Immie and iamamiwhoami . KONSERT is ionnalee’s third online concert installation. The concert was streamed at YouTube on September 2, 2020 for free and featured TR/ST, Imogen Heap, Zola Jesus, and Vander Von Odd.

I watched the concert while I was waiting for my gall bladder op. Lol not all my Immie memories are medical, honest!

What lies beyond the fringe of the woods?
Dust to dust, so we leave for good
When all has gone to blazes I start to run
Until I find places where nobody’s gone

No more weight on your conscience
With ease, I go back to the start

Surge like a fountain
Riptide
And swallow me
Flourish like a fountain
Inside
Gather force from the sea
Now you’re new and shiny
Hold tight
Let it wash me clean

Crawling through deafening cold
Turning head, there’s no sight of home
Though my body’s aching, we have to push on
For every start, no line is drawn

Surge like a fountain
Riptide
And swallow me
Flourish like a fountain
Inside
Gather force from the sea
Now you’re new and shiny
Hold tight
Let it wash me clean

From watching eyes I blindly rove
To guard my stories and find my god

What lies beyond the fringe of the woods?
Dust to dust, so we leave for good.

HAVE A SUNDAY EVERYONE!

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 3, 2021. Who/ Whom.

Badge by Shelley Krupa.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “start with who/whom” Begin your post with either “who” or “whom” and go from there. Have fun!

Who do I think of when I think back to my pre-teen days when all my brothers and sisters where all alive and at home. Who was who back then, Teresa Mary, Mary Anne, Frances Jane, Anthony Conrad, John Patrick and me , there had been three more but I never knew them and of course there was Mum and Dad.

Music played a huge part in my young life, in all our lives but I was the youngest and the one who soaked up the magic.

Mum loved the big musicals of the time, Carousel , Paint your Wagons, South Pacific. Now Dad he loved the classics, Maria Calis was exactly who my Dad really liked .. I learned to a appreciate Mum and Dad’s music at a young age.

Teresa loved Pat Boone, Frances loved Elvis and Cliff, Mary…well I can’t remember who Mary really liked back then but in later years she was into big shows and jazz. My brother Tony was heavily in to Johnny Mathis for whom I have a great liking still. Then there was John Patrick who was absolutely besotted with Buddy Holly and Adam Faith both of whom I also like.

So how can I finish this post? Well I am going to say that there is one of the afore mentioned artists of whom I am very much enamoured and that is Adam Faith! My favourite song of his is …wait for it…WHO AM I and here it is .💜

This is part of LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. #SoCs.
