Song Lyric Sunday 7th September 2019.

Hi it’s Sunday again and time once more for Song Lyric Sunday. Our host Jim Adams has set us the prompt of: Bird/Fly/Sky/Wing.

My first thought was Gorge Harrison, my favourite Beatle taking the lead with his song Blue Jay Way. I do believe that is where he stayed for a while in the Hollywood Hills.

“Blue Jay Way”
Written by George Harrison.

There’s a fog upon L.A.,
And my friends have lost their way.
“We’ll be over soon,” they said.
Now they’ve lost themselves instead

Please don’t be long
Please don’t you be very long
Please don’t be long for I may be asleep

Well, it only goes to show
And I told them where to go
Ask a policeman on the street
There’s so many there to meet

Please don’t be long
Please don’t you be very long
Please don’t be long for I may be asleep

Now it’s past my bed I know
And I’d really like to go
Soon will be the break of day
Sitting here in Blue Jay Way

Please don’t be long
Please don’t you be very long
Please don’t be long for I may be asleep

Please don’t be long
Please don’t you be very long
Please don’t be long

Please don’t be long
Please don’t you be very long
Please don’t be long

Please don’t be long
Please don’t you be very long
Please don’t be long

Don’t be long, don’t be long, don’t be long
Don’t be long, don’t be long, don’t be long
Lyrics from A to Z Lyrics

And of course Spread your Wings by Queen . lyrics in the Video.

Song Lyric Sunday. 4/10/18 Take.

This week HelenVahdati has given us the words Take/ Taking for #songlyricsunday.

I have chosen Take my Breath Away by Queen. One of their beautiful ballards.

This is one of my favourites from that era 1976. This song is definitely one of their very best. I was 26 years young, married with two children. If I was tired it gave me a lift, it I was sad it helped me, if I was plain stressed it relaxed me! My two older boys grew up on a diet of Queen even when they were in the womb the last lad to a lesser extent but they all know and appreciate Queen.

Song Lyric Sunday Search.30/09/18.

This week’s Song Lyric Sunday prompt word is search.

I have gone a little off piste this week with Queen‘s Lilley of the Valley.

Brilliant song all about searching for answers to questions that make up our lives.

“Lily Of The Valley”

I am forever searching high and low
But why does everybody tell me no
Neptune of the seas
Have you an answer for me please
And the lily of the valley doesn’t know

I lie in wait with open eyes
I carry on through stormy skies
I follow every course
My kingdom for a horse
But each time I grow old
Serpent of the Nile
Relieve me for a while
And cast me from your spell and let me go

Messenger from Seven Seas has flown
To tell the King of Rhye he’s lost his throne
Wars will never cease
Is there time enough for peace
But the lily of the valley doesn’t know.

This is part of Helen Vahdati’s #songlyricsunday join in here.

Happy Sunday everyone.

Song Lyric Sunday. Unity.

Today for our Song Lyric Sunday Prompt, Helen Vahdatihas given us the word Unity to play with.

Now the prompt unity was very kindly suggested to Helen by Felicia Denise.

Well I had to go with Queen One Vision . I have all Queen’s Music and boy does this one fit the bill. It was released as a single in November 1985 and then included on their 1986 album A Kind of Magic. It was originally conceived by Roger Taylor

The words are in the video.

It’s wonderful I love it!

Musicalmarch,Day 11. Best fun moment ever.

Our Blog Sis Ritu at  But  I smile anyway has come up with another challenge for us this month Musicalmarch.

Ritu  said  : “Nothing too serious or tedious.Just a chance to share some songs! If you fancy posting a song for any reason this March, tag it #musicalmarch

Link to Ritu’s post

So today is Day 11 of #musicalmarch and here is my best fun moment of all time. 

Queen did a concert after dearest Freddy’s death and had Elton John and Axile Rose  ūüĆĻ singing sections of the song, along with Freddy’s voice singing part of it too. 

Elton and Queen had no idea what Axile Rose was going to do because Axile being Axile refused to rehearse at all. So it was a fabulous surprise when he burst on to the stage like a whirling Dervish and stole the show, even at the end he stole the show by taking Elton’s hand and walking to the front of the stage with him. Just beautiful! Watch for Axils’s fantastic entrance at about 3 minutes  thirty on the video. It is just fabulous.xxxxx

Song Lyric Sunday: Lily of the Valley

This  weeks   Song Lyric  Sunday , inspired  by Helen Espinosa  at  This thing  called  life one word at a  time   is  The  Lilley  of  the Valley   by  Queen.

Rules  and Pingback.

I have  always  loved  Queen from  the very  first time I heard  them sing The Seven Seas Of Rye. I have  every  single  Album  they  ever made  and  my  one  huge  regret is  that I never  saw  them live!

queen_sheer_heart_attackLily  of  the Valley  is  off of  their  Sheer  Heart Attack  Album :

Sheer Heart Attack was the third studio album by British rock band Queen, released in November 1974. It was produced by the band and Roy Thomas Baker and distributed by EMI in the United Kingdom, and Elektra in the United States.

Why do I love ¬†this ¬†track ¬†so much? It reminds ¬†me of ¬†my life … I am forever ¬†searching ¬†high and low! I never ¬†find ¬†the ¬†answers.

 

“Lily Of The Valley”

I am forever searching high and low

To tell the King of Rhye he’s lost his throne
Wars will never cease
Is there time enough for peace
But the lily of the valley doesn’t knowWritten by ¬†Freddy ¬†Mercury
