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: Season.

It’s Christmas Eve tomorrow. Don’t panic! By the way I have had three attempts at this blog fingers crossed I have nailed it this time 😉

Helen Vahdati who hosts #SLS has given us the prompt Season for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday.

Well I thought maybe I could do all the seasons, starting with Spring.

Let’s go with Donna Summer and Spring Affair.


Ooh, something’s coming over me
Ooh, I think it’s got a hold on me, it’s got me, it’s got me
Ooh, just the man I hoped you’d be
Ooh, just the man to set me free, you got me, you got me
You got me, you got me
Spring affair, spring affair, spring affair
And I’m hung on you
Spring affair, spring affair, spring affair
And we’ve got something new, me and you, oh baby
Ooh, guess I’m falling much too fast
Ooh, I hope this love is gonna last, I’ve fallen
Ooh, the feeling’s getting really strong
Ooh, gives me strength to carry on, I’ve fallen, I’ve fallen
Spring affair, spring affair, spring affair
And I’m hung up on you
Spring affair, spring affair, spring affair
And we’ve got something new
It’s a spring affair
It’s a spring affair
Oooh, ooh, ooh
Spring affair, spring affair, spring affair
And I’m hung up on you
Spring affair, spring affair, spring affair
And we’ve got something new
Uuuh uhh aah,.. oh yeah…
Ooh, you’re the sunshine in my life
Ooh, how you come on shining bright, you got me
Ooh, feeling’s gonna grow and grow
Ooh, let your loving river flow, you got me, you got all of me
Spring affair, spring affair, spring affair
And I’m hung up on you
Spring affair, spring affair, spring affair
And we’ve got something new
Spring affair, spring affair, spring affair
And we’ve got something new
It’s a spring affair
It’s a spring affair
Spring affair
Give strength to carry on
Spring affair…

Lyric from A to Z Lyrics.

Next Summer, Here are The Corrs with Summer Sunshine I do love the Corrs their blend of traditional Irish music and modern make for a fantastic repertoire. This song falls into the modern section.

Autumn next and the fabulous Kinks with Autumn Almanac. The two brothers Ray and Dave Davis were brilliant songwriters and musicians….still are.

Now finally Winter. There are many but it has got to be Freddie in the Winter of his life. With Queen and A Winter’s Tale. Just beautiful, just perfect.

“A Winter’s Tale”

It’s winter-fall
Red skies are gleaming
Sea-gulls are flying over
Swans are floatin’ by
Smoking chimney-tops

Am I dreaming?
Am I dreaming?

The nights draw in
There’s a silky moon up in the sky
Children are fantasising
Grown-ups are standin’ by
What a super feeling

Am I dreaming?
Am I dreaming?

(Dreaming)
So quiet and peaceful
Tranquil and blissful
There’s a kind of magic in the air
What a truly magnificent view
A breathtaking scene

With the dreams of the world
In the palm of your hand

(Dreaming)
A cosy fireside chat
A little this, a little that
Sound of merry laughter skippin’ by
Gentle rain beatin’ on my face
What an extraordinary place!

And the dream of the child
Is the hope of the—hope of the man

It’s all so beautiful
Like a landscape painting in the sky
Mountains are zoomin’ higher
Little girls scream and cry

My world is spinnin’ and spinnin’ and spinnin’
It’s unbelievable
Sends me reeling

Am I dreaming?
Am I dreaming?
Ooh, it’s bliss

Lyrics from AtoZ lyrics

So there you have it we have zipped through the year. I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year. I love you all.💜💜
