I can see why you think you belong to me
I never tried to make you think, or let you see one thing for yourself
But now your off with someone else and I’m alone
You see I thought that I might keep you for my own

Amie what you want to do?
I think I could stay with you
For a while, maybe longer if I do

Don’t you think the time is right for us to find
All the things we thought weren’t proper could be right in time
And can you see
Which way we should turn together or alone
I can never see what’s right or what is wrong
(will it take to long to see)

Amie what you want to do?
I think I could stay with you
For a while, maybe longer if I do

Well now
Amie what you want to do?
I think I could stay with you
For a while, maybe longer if I do

Now it’s come to what you want you’ve had your way
And all the things you thought before just faded into gray
And can you see
That I don’t know if it’s you or if it’s me
If it’s one of us I’m sure we’ll both will see
Won’t you look at me and tell me

Amie what you want to do?
I think I could stay with you
For a while, maybe longer
Longer if I do

Yeah now
Amie what you want to do?
I think I could stay with you
For a while, maybe longer if I do

Fallin’ in and out of love with you
Fallin’ in and out of love with you
Don’t know what I’m gonna do, I’d keep
Fallin’ in and out of love
With you

Songwriters
FULLER, CRAIG LEE

Here’s a couple of songs from the 90s. I don’t have any special memories about them, I just like them. I’ve only recently heard this first one, and the second one I heard when it first came out. They both have a Cajun flavor to the words and music, which really makes me want to dance…and I don’t dance! 🙂 Enjoy!

The Mystery Box Chickens and I would like to take a moment to reflect on the A to Z Blog Challenge 2017.

This year in April was the 4th time I’ve joined in on the challenge. ( 2nd time for the Chickens)

Instead of random A/Z posts about whatever, I did have a theme. It was to feature music videos with the titles being for the letter of the day.

I enjoyed finding the music, and keeping any commentary short and simple. I hope you enjoyed listening.

Thank you all so much for stopping by this month. I appreciated all your visits, likes, and comments! You are all champions to me! 🙂

Christmas, 2015,we had a blizzard here in our town. It was a mess for weeks. Our flights were delayed and cancelled trying to get back home. Don’t want to do that again!

There was one Christmas, probably 1997, that we had snow on Christmas day. Well, there might have been other times, but this time was a big one, too. Just as we were opening presents that morning, these huge snowflakes started falling, and before long all outside was a winter wonderland. Then we had to drive over to my parent’s house for the get-together with family.

One of the gifts to my daughter was, at the time, a CD of the songs by Hanson, one of which was “MMMBop”. You remember that one? I liked it then, and I still do like that song. Anyway, she put it on to listen to while we continued opening gifts. It was on repeat, so we heard it over and over for quite a while. Now we call it our “MMMBop” Christmas! 🙂

Look! Here it is now!

“MMMBop”, by Hanson, was released as a single from the album, “Middle of Nowhere”, in 1997. It was written by, Isaac Hanson, Taylor Hanson,and Zac Hanson, and is on the Mercury – Polygram label.

After a successful month of posting music videos for the April A to Z Challenge, I will continue with this weekly music challenge.

I was a bit lost this morning, as to finding a song to post about. Was I burnt out from a month of music…or were you? Well, no, there’s always more great songs to find. 🙂

This one, “Midnight in the Desert”, written and sung by Crystal Gayle, is just a beautiful song. I like everything about it. I first heard it on the radio program, “Coast to Coast”, Art Bell’s midnight show about all thing mysterious. I’ve listened to his talk program for many years, and it is everything I love to think about…UFOs, ghosts, conspiracy, and all things spooky/paranormal. The song was written for the show, and later the show was renamed, “Midnight in the Desert”. From what I could find out, this song was debuted in 2009, on the Goldenlane Records label.

Enjoy!
