Song Lyric Sunday: Freeze/Cold/Ice.

This week Jim Adams of NewEpicAuthor has given us the prompt this week of Freeze/Cold/Ice. He hopes that we have some cool tunes.

Well my first thought was Cold Water Surrounds Me by Damon Rice . Such a beautiful song.

The other song I have chosen is Under Ice. By Kate Bush. I really love both these songs I hope you enjoyed them too.

“Under Ice”

It’s wonderful.

Everywhere, so white.
The river has frozen over.
Not a soul on the ice.
Only me skating fast.
I’m speeding past trees,
Leaving little lines in the ice,
Splitting, splitting sound,
Silver heels spitting, spitting snow.

(“Sonar says…?…deep…?”)

There’s something moving
Under, under the ice,
Moving under ice,
Through water,
Trying to get out of the cold water.
“It’s me.”
Something, someone–help them.
“It’s me.”

Lyrics from A to Z Lyrics.

Song Lyric Sunday, Burn/ Fire/Flame.

Hi everyone and thanks to our host Jim at NewEpicAuthor for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday prompt. Burn/Fire/Flame.

So many great songs to choose from and I need to be careful not to use any I have used before.

Well use this one before or not I adore Fire Meets Gasoline by Sia. It fits the prompt perfectly.

Burn by Ellie Goulding Oh! Love this too.

Oh! And the Australian group Midnight Oil , Beds are burning. The best protest song ever!

And the best video

Song Lyric Sunday. 31/3/2019.

Care of Jim Adams at NewEpicAuthor: This week’s prompt is Recorded, Jukebox, DJ, Radio.Well this is so hard to pick just one so I am going to pick more than one.

Firstly from 1984 Queen and the fabulous Radio Ga Ga.

Radio Ga Ga”

Radio

Radio

I’d sit alone and watch your light
My only friend through teenage nights
And everything I had to know
I heard it on my radio

You gave them all those old-time stars
Through wars of worlds invaded by Mars
You made ’em laugh, you made ’em cry
You made us feel like we could fly

Radio

So, don’t become some background noise
A backdrop for the girls and boys
Who just don’t know or just don’t care
And just complain when you’re not there

You had your time, you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio, radio

All we hear is “Radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga”
All we hear is “Radio ga ga
“Radio blah blah”
Radio, what’s new?
Radio, someone still loves you

We watch the shows, we watch the stars
On videos for hours and hours
We hardly need to use our ears
How music changes through the years

Let’s hope you never leave, old friend
Like all good things on you we depend
So, stick around ’cause we might miss you
When we grow tired of all this visual

You had your time, you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio, radio

All we hear is “Radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga”
All we hear is “Radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga”

All we hear is “Radio ga ga
Radio blah blah”
Radio, what’s new?
Someone still loves you

Radio ga ga
Radio ga ga
Radio ga ga

You had your time, you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio, radio
Lyrics from A to Z

Then Robbie Williams and Rock DJ. This is a brilliant song and a great dance record.
Me with the floorshow
Kickin’ with your torso
Boys getting high
And the girls even more so
Wave your hands if your not with the man
Can I kick it?
(Yes you can)
I got
(Funk)
You got
(Soul)
We got everybody
I’ve got the gift
Gonna stick it in the goal
It’s time to move your body
Babylon back in business
Can I get a witness?
Every girl, every man
Houston, do you hear me?
Ground control, can you feel me?
Need permission to land
I don’t wanna rock, DJ
But your making me feel so nice
When’s it gonna stop, DJ?
Cos you’re keepin’ me up all night
Singin’ in the classes
Music for your masses
Give no head
No backstage passes
Have a proper giggle
I’ll be quite polite
But when I rock the mic
I rock the mic
(Right)
You got no love, then you’re with the wrong man
It’s time to move your body
If you can’t get a girl
But your best friend can
It’s time to move your body
I don’t wanna be sleazy
Baby just tease me
Got no family planned
Houston, do you hear me?
Ground control, can you feel me?
Need permission to land
I don’t wanna rock DJ
But you’re making me feel so nice
When’s it gonna stop, DJ?
Cos you’re keeping me up all night
I don’t wanna rock, DJ
But you’re making me feel so nice
When’s it gonna stop, DJ?
Cos your keeping me up all night
Pimpin’ aint easy
Most of them fleece me
Every night
Pimpin’ ain’t easy
But if you’re sellin’ it
It’s alright
Come on
I don’t wanna rock, DJ
But you’re making me feel so nice
When’s it gonna stop, DJ?
Cos you’re keeping me up all night
I don’t wanna rock, DJ
But you’re making me feel so nice
When’s it gonna stop, DJ?
Cos you’re keeping me up all night

Lyrics from A to Z

And finally the theme to Juke Box Jury shown from 1959 to 1967. The theme is Hit and Miss by John Barry. It was the first really UK pop show. Previous show were modelled on the US. shows of that genre. Read about Juke box Jury here.

And here is show .. from the 60’s very British.😉

This is brought to as part of Song Lyric Sunday hosted at NewEpicAuthor.

Song Lyric Sunday. Animals.

Jim Adams, aka Newwpicauthor, has decided that this week’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY will be Animal.

Well I struggled with this prompt. Being late to the party the first to mind would be already used. Then I remembered Let’s Do It. The 1920’s Cole Porter standard. I chose the Alanis Morissette version.

I do love this version I hope you do too.

Let’s Do It (Let’s Fall In Love)”

Lyrics. Cole Porter

Birds do it, bees do it
Even educated fleas do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

In Spain, the best upper sets do it
Lithuanians and Letts do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

The Dutch in old Amsterdam do it
Not to mention the Finns
Folks in Siam do it – think of Siamese twins

Some Argentines without means do it
People say in Boston even beans do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

Romantic sponges, they say, do it
Oysters down in Oyster Bay do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

Cold Cape Cod clams, ‘gainst their wish, do it
Even lazy jellyfish do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

Electric eels, I might add, do it
Though it shocks ’em I know
Why ask if shad do it? Waiter, bring me shad roe!

In shallow shoals, English soles do it
Goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

In old Japan, all the Japs do it
Up in Lapland little Laps do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

The chimpanzees in the zoos do it
Some courageous kangaroos do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

I’m sure giraffes on the sly do it
Even eagles as they fly do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

Electric eels, I might add, do it
Though it shocks ’em I know
Why ask if shad do it? Garçon, de shad roe!

The world admits bears in pits do it
Even Pekingeses at the Ritz do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

The royal set sans regret did it
And they considered it fun
Marie Antoinette did it –
With or without Napoleon

Lyrics from A to Z Lyrics.

Song lyric Sunday. 3/3/19.

This week Jim Adams at NewEpicAuthor told us he had heard from Helen Vahdati. Unfortunately Helen is still unwell and has decided not to take the reins back.

Song Lyric Sunday banner

Luckily for us Jim is happy to continue hosting our weekly song prompt. Hooray and thank you Jim.

Rules and Pingback

The prompt for this week is “Occupation”.

Well there are so many and I have had a really hard job on deciding what to pick .

Before I go for my main choice here is my favourite occupation song of all time. Wichita Lineman . By Glen Campbell. A beautiful self explanatory song about a man doing a dangerous job in harsh conditions and missing home and partner.

Lyrics and who wrote the song all in the video.

Well now here is my main choice The Scientist by Cold play. The video shows the story of the song backwards. Chris Martin had to sing “The Scientist” backwards for the music video, so learned the phonetic movements which made it look like he was singing the words, the singer set about the month long task of studying his lyrics and learning how perform them back to front. It is very well done!

The Scientist”

Come up to meet you, tell you I’m sorry
You don’t know how lovely you are

I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart

Tell me your secrets
And ask me your questions
Oh, let’s go back to the start

Running in circles
Coming up tails
Heads on a science apart

Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard

Oh, take me back to the start

I was just guessing
At numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart

Questions of science
Science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart

Tell me you love me
Come back and haunt me
Oh, and I rush to the start

Running in circles
Chasing our tails
Coming back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
Oh, it’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard

I’m going back to the start

Oh [x4]

Song Lyric Sunday 24/2/2019

It is  Sunday again and  time  for  SLS. Helen Vahdati’s This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time,  Song Lyric Sunday.  The prompt for this week is Harmony/Melody/Music, so let’s light it up, set it off, kick it into gear, As Jim at newepicauthor  said “let it rip, start jamming, let the dogs out, release the hounds and get the party started.”

Rules  and Pingback here 

Okay I want  to play  but  I don’t have  much time  so  I am going  straight in  with  Extreme  an actual American Rock Band  though from this  beautiful, gentle  and truly gorgeous close harmony. The song  More  than words. 

“More Than Words”

Saying “I love you”
Is not the words
I want to hear from you
It’s not that I want you
Not to say
But if you only knewHow easy
It would be to
Show me how you feel
More than words
Is all you have to do
To make it real
Then you wouldn’t
Have to say
That you love me
Cause I’d already know

What would you do?
If my heart
Was torn in two
More than words
To show you feel
That your love
For me is real
What would you say
If I took
Those words away
Then you couldn’t
Make things new,
Just by saying
“I love you”
More than words,
More than words

Now that I’ve tried to
Talk to you
And make you understand
All you have to do
Is close your eyes
And just reach out your hands

And touch me
Hold me close
Don’t ever let me go
More than words
Is all I ever
Needed you to show
Then you wouldn’t
Have to say
That you love me
Cause I’d already know

What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldn’t make things new
Just by saying I love you

La di da, da di da, di dai dai da
More than words

La di da, da di da, di dai dai da
More than words

La di dai, dai dai, di dai dai da
La la di da da da

La di dai dai da
La la da da
More than words

Oooh uuuuh uuuh
Uuh

More than words

Lyrics  C/O A to Z Lyrics

 

Song Lyric Sunday: River/Stream/Creek/Brook

It is Sunday and so it’s time for another episode of SLS Helen Vahdati’s This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time Song Lyric Sunday. Brought to us by NewEpicAuthor

The prompt for this week is “River/Stream/Creek/Brook” and these are all pathways for water.

Rules and Pingback here

I have chosen one of my favourite songs by Carly Simon, Like a River. The song means a lot to me. In the song a daughter is talking to her dead mother. Telling her how much she misses her, how the family have coped with her passing and how they wish she was still with them .

My mum has been gone for over 30yrs but sometimes it still feels like yesterday. I agree with every word in this song it is so beautiful.

“Like A River”

Dear mother the struggle is over now
And your house is up for sale
We divided your railway watches
Between the four of us
I fought over the pearls
With the other girls
But it was all a metaphor
For what was wrong with us
As the room is emptying out
Your face so young comes into view
And on the back porch is a well-worn step
And a pool of light you can walk into

I’ll wait no more for you like a daughter,
That part of our life together is over
But I will wait for you, forever
Like a river…

Can you clear up the mystery of the Sphinx?
Do you know any more about God?
Are you dancing with Benjamin Franklin
On the face of the moon?
Have you reconciled with Dad?
Does the rain still make you sad?
Last night I swear I could feel you
Moving through my room
And I thought you touched my feet
I so wanted it to be true
In my theater there is a stage
And a footlight you can step into…

I’ll wait no more for you like a daughter,
That part of our life together is over
But I will wait for you, forever
Like a river…

In the river I know I will find the key
And your voice will rise like the spray
In the moment of knowing
The tide will wash away my doubt
‘Cause you’re already home
Making it nice for when I come home
Like the way I find my bed turned down
Coming in from a late night out.
Please keep reminding me
Of what in my soul I know is true

Come in my boat, there’s a seat beside me
And two or three stars we can gaze into…

I’ll wait no more for you like a daughter,
That part of our life together is over
But I will wait for you forever
Like a river…

I’ll never leave, always just a dream away
A star that’s always watching
Never turn away
We’ll never leave, always just a thought away
A candle always burning
Never turn away
The moon will hide, the tree will bend
I’m right beside you
I’ll never turn away

Lyrics from A to Z Lyrics

Here is another beautiful song about rivers this one is about lost love, mistakes and loneliness at Christmas. It is by another wonderful singer songwriter Joni Mitchell. I wish I had a River I could skate away on. Words in the video on this one .
