Burn – Song Lyric Sunday – Burn/Fire/Flame

Today for SLS we are to find songs with the subject of ‘burn/fire/flame’. Thanks, Jim!

There were so many songs to choose from! I kept looking until I found this one. I hadn’t heard it before. I first saw this cover version of Ellie Goulding’s song, “Burn”, and I loved it! Then I listened to the original, and it’s great, too.

I got interested in the artists/musicians in the cover performance, and they have a lot of songs.

From Wiki:

Postmodern Jukebox, also widely known by the acronym PMJ, is a rotating musical collective founded by arranger and pianist Scott Bradlee in 2011. PMJ is known for reworking popular modern music into different vintage genres, especially early 20th century forms such as swing and jazz.

This is done in a Vintage 60s girl group fashion, featuring Robyn Adele Anderson. Their music can be found on Mud Hut Digital and Concord Records.

Note the flaming saxophone! Cool!

“Burn”, by Ellie Goulding, was released in 2013 from her album, “Halcyon Days”. It was written by Ellie Goulding, Ryan Tedder, Leona Lewis, Gary Kurstin, Noel Zancanella, and Brent Kutzle, and is on the Polydor lebel.

Verse 1]
We, we don’t have to worry ’bout nothing
‘Cause we got the fire
And we’re burning one hell of a something
They, they gonna see us from outer space
Outer space, light it up
Like we’re the stars of the human race, human race

[Chorus]
When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah, we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

[Verse 2]
We don’t wanna leave
No, we just gonna be right now, right now

And what we see, is everybody’s on the floor
Acting crazy, getting low go ’til the light’s out
Music’s on, I’m waking up
We start the fire, and we burn it up
And it’s over now, we got the love
There’s no secret now, no secret now

When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah, we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

[Bridge 1]
When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, burn

[Bridge 2]
We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah, we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

[Outro]
When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah, we got the fire, fire, fire

And we’re gonna let it burn

“Return to Sender”, by Elvis Presley, was released as a single from the album, “Girls, Girls, Girls”, in 1962. It was written by Winfield Scott, and Otis Blackwell, and is on the RCA Victor label.

[Intro: Elvis Presley]
Return to sender!
Return to sender!

[Verse 1: Elvis Presley]
I gave a letter to the postman
He put it in his sack
Bright in early next morning
He brought my letter back

[Verse 2: Elvis Presley]
She wrote upon it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone
We had a quarrel, a lover’s spat
I write I’m sorry but my letter keeps coming back

[Verse 3: Elvis Presley]
So then I dropped it in the mailbox
And sent it special D

Bright in early next morning
It came right back to me

[Bridge: Elvis Presley]
She wrote upon it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such person, no such zone

This time I’m gonna take it myself
And put it right in her hand
And if it comes back the very next day
Then I’ll understand the writing on it

[Outro: Elvis Presley]
Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone
Return to sender
Return to sender
Return to sender
Return to sender

Now, here’s another one. I actually chose this one first, but then found someone else had already picked this one. Oh well, I figure we all have lots of different readers on our blogs, so I’m including this one, too.

***

“P. S. I Love You”, by the Beatles, was released as the B side of the single, “Love Me Do”, in 1962 (UK), and 1964 (US). It was credited to the John Lennon/Paul McCartney team, as the writers, but I read that it was mostly the creation from Paul McCartney. It is on the Parlophone, and Tollie 9008 labels.

This song I found is a cover of the Beatles song. I found that most all of the Beatles song videos have been removed from Youtube.

I don’t know who did this cover, but it’s very good, in my opinion, and the photos included are nice for remembering. It also fits the prompt of writing letters.

Hope you enjoy going down memory lane with this one!

*[Chorus 1]
As I write this letter
Send my love to you

Remember that I’ll always
Be in love with you

[Chorus 2]
Treasure these few words till we’re together
Keep all my love forever
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

[Chorus 3]
I’ll be coming home again to you, love
And till the day I do, love
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

[Chorus 1]
As I write this letter
Send my love to you
Remember that I’ll always
Be in love with you

[Chorus 2]
Treasure these few words till we’re together
Keep all my love forever
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

As I write this letter
Send my love to you

Remember that I’ll always
Be in love with you

[Chorus 3]
I’ll be coming home again to you, love
And till the day I do, love
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

51 Weeks/51 Songs From the Past – 1st Dances

51 Weeks/51 Songs From the Past – 1st Dances 

51 Weeks: 51 Songs From The Past: Week 38: Pet Shop Boys – Go West

This week for the challenge, Hugh has asked if we had a song we’d consider as our ‘first dance’ song.

Thanks for the prompt, Hugh!

Well, I don’t do much dancing, except being silly in my living room, and we didn’t have a ‘first dance’ for our wedding, many years ago, but…

Here’s some memories I do have about dancing. We went to a few school dances, like the prom, or such. I’m sure we tried out the dances of the day, back in the 60s. I was never any good at dancing, being such a klutz, and tripping over my own feet, but I tried, and had a good time, anyway.

One dance that was definitely not school related was at a nightclub. This was a place called the, “Cotton Club”, and was on the outskirts of town.

We’d go with my husband’s parents on a Friday or Saturday night, to listen to the live, country bands, to dance, and to drink. I’m not sure what the legal drinking age was in TX at the time (the 60s), but probably 21. I was 19, but married. This place was a BYOB kind of place, and they would provide the set-ups. I don’t remember what we had to drink, maybe whiskey, or beer, but my in-laws provided the drinks for us.

Anyway, we were always afraid the TABC, which is the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, would come and find us underage ones, and maybe we’d be in trouble. When we heard they might be in the club, my sister-in-law and I would go hide in the women’s restroom, until we thought it was safe to come out. Needless to say, we had our own little party in there, with our drinks, and whooping and hollering, and peeking out the door to see if we could come out, yet. Forty-eight years later, we still laugh about those good times.

Here’s one of the dances I tried to dance, but wasn’t very good at. Instead of the gym as shown in the video, try to imagine a huge venue, dark and smoky, loud music playing, and lots of people boot scooting and stomping their way around the dance floor, hollering ‘bullshit’, because this song is also known as the ‘bullshit’ song.  🙂

“Cotton Eye Joe”, was originally an old folk song, heard around the dates pre 1861, and the writer is unknown. There have been many cover versions of this song. This one may be a cover from the Swedish recording group, “Rednex”, which was remixed as a dance track in 1994. It can be found on their greatest hits album, “Best of the West”.
