Song Lyric Sunday, Spice of Life

Hi it’s Sunday and time for Jim Adams to give us our weekly prompt for Song Lyric Sunday. This weeks prompt is : Cinnamon/Mint/Parsley/Pepper/Rosemary/Sage/Salt/Thyme and hopefully this will leave a pleasant smell with all of us.  

Personally I found this one hard, there are few well lots over the years but I did try to think latterly. My first and favourite pick of the bunch is cinnamon girl. Not a happy song with truly abusive and addictive lyrics but it still speaks to me.

Cinnamon Girl” is a song by American singer and songwriter Lana Del Rey from her sixth studio album, Norman Fucking Rockwell! (2019). The song was written and produced by Del Rey and Jack Antonoff.

Second choice from when I was ten, one of my favourite from my pre teen years, innocent days….I miss them .

Sugar and Spice” is a 1963 song by Merseybeat band The Searchers written by Tony Hatch under the pseudonym Fred Nightingale. It made number two on the UK charts (on Pye) and number 44 in the USA charts.

The composer and producer of “Sugar and Spice”: Tony Hatch, had produced the precedent Searchers’ single: a cover of the Drifters‘ “Sweets for My Sweet” which had afforded the Searchers a #1 UK hit. Hatch, having written “Sugar and Spice” on the template of “Sweets for My Sweet”, pitched his original song to the Searchers as the work of an as-yet unknown songwriter named Fred Nightingale, as Hatch felt the group might be dismissive of the song if they knew it to be their producer’s work.

The first line of the chorus “Sugar and spice and all things nice” references the nursery rhyme What Are Little Girls Made Of?, while the second line of the chorus is the title of the well-known Pete SeegerLee Hays composition “Kisses Sweeter than Wine“.More information here

Love Grows, from the year before I got married, working as window dresser and loving it ๐Ÿ˜€ is my third and final choice.๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’œ

Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)” is a popular song by “two hit wonders” Edison Lighthouse, originally recorded by Jefferson. The single reached the number one spot on the UK Singles Chart on the week ending on 31 January 1970, where it remained for a total of five weeks. It also became the first number one single of the 1970s (not counting Rolf Harris‘s “Two Little Boys” which was a holdover from 1969).

Happy Sunday Everyone.

Song Lyric Sunday 21/July 2019

It is Sunday July 21, 2019 and that means it’s time for Song Lyric Sunday from Jim Adams. This week our prompt words are โ€“ Wedding/Marry/Diamond/Ring/Cake.

Well I love the song Wedding Bell Blues originally written and recorded by Laura Nyro in 1966. The best known version was a number one hit for the 5th Dimension in 1969. More information here

Now my favourite version is by Morrisey Featuring Billy Joe Armstrong

It’s the best version, to my mind .

And of course there is always the Bruno Mars song Marry You,
from his debut studio album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans (2010). Written and produced by The Smeezingtons, the track serves as the record’s sixth track and was released as a single outside of the United States. “Marry You” is a pop song featuring strong influences of doo-wop and soul music. The recording focuses on spontaneous marriage and therefore, since its release, has frequently been used as a proposal song.more information here.

And here is photo the wedding cake from our youngest son and his wife’s wedding and the Rainbow cake our eldest sons girlfriend (of the time) had made for them as well.

Then there is Martha Reeves and the Vandellas with Third Finger Left Hand.

Lyrics from Lyrics dot com

At last my dreams come true 
Today he said "I do" 
Friends said it couldn't be done 
But all his love I know I've won 
'Cause 3rd finger, left hand 
That's where he placed the wedding band 

He walked right up to me
& pledged his love for me
I longed to hear him say
The sweet words he spoke that day
Made me feel so good inside
The tears came to my eyes
I love him above the rest
‘Cause in my book he’s the best

‘Cause he did something that no one else did
Friends said it couldn’t be done
But all his love I know I’ve won
‘Cause 3rd finger, left hand
That’s where he placed the wedding band

His words were precious few
But all along my heart knew
That no other boys in line
Could ever change my mind
Other boys I sent away
I locked my heart till our wedding day
I love him above the rest
‘Cause in my book he’s the best

‘Cause he did something that no one else did
Friends said it couldn’t be done
But all his love I know I’ve won
‘Cause 3rd finger, left hand
That’s where he placed the wedding band

3rd finger, left hand
That’s where he placed the wedding band
