I’ll Be There For You -Song Lyric Sunday – Comfort

Standard

I’ll Be There For You – Song Lyric Sunday – Comfort

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 1/21/18

***

This week Helen has asked us to consider songs about comfort. Thanks, Helen.

I found it a bit hard to find one, that actually said the word comfort in the title or lyrics. That is, there were some, but I’d never heard of them. I’d rather post a song that I like, rather than just put any old thing on here, just for getting the prompt word. Most times it works out fine, but not this time. Most songs I found were so depressing sounding, I didn’t even care to listen, after reading about them; songs about grief, sadness, death, funerals, and more. No, I just couldn’t bring myself down with songs like these.

So, I went with this one. I’m sure most of you will recognize it, and it is a happy sounding song, about friendship and being there for each other no matter what happens. That’s pretty comforting to have someone like that, isn’t it? 🙂

***

“I’ll Be There For You”, by the Rembrandts, is the first single released from their album, “L. P.”, in 1995. It was written by David Crane, Marta Kauffman, Michael Skloff, Allee Willis, Phil Solem, and Danny Wilde, and is on the East West Atlantic label. It became the theme song for the TV show, “Friends”.

***

 

So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s D.O.A.
It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear
When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year, butI’ll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I’ll be there for you
(Like I’ve been there before)
I’ll be there for you
(‘Cause you’re there for me too)You’re still in bed at ten and work began at eight
You’ve burned your breakfast, so far things are going great
Your mother warned you there’d be days like these
But she didn’t tell you when the world has brought you down to your knees thatI’ll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I’ll be there for you
(Like I’ve been there before)
I’ll be there for you
(‘Cause you’re there for me too)

No one could ever know me
No one could ever see me
Seems you’re the only one who knows what it’s like to be me
Someone to face the day with, make it through all the rest with
Someone I’ll always laugh with
Even at my worst, I’m best with you, yeah!

It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear
When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year

I’ll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I’ll be there for you
(Like I’ve been there before)
I’ll be there for you
(‘Cause you’re there for me too)

I’ll be there for you
I’ll be there for you
I’ll be there for you
(‘Cause you’re there for me too)

Just Jot It January – Contemplation

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 16th, 2018

***

Your prompt for January 16th, 2018, brought to you by the multi-talented Cheryl, is “Contemplation.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Cheryl at her blog, “The Bag Lady” to read her post and say hi! Here’s her link:  https://rugby843.blog/

***

Thinking…contemplating

Think…ruminate

Ruminate to relate

Relate to alleviate

Alleviate and gravitate

Gravitate to contemplate

Contemplate to ruminate

Ruminating to contemplating

Contemplating and thinking…

And thinking about contemplating

On and on and on…

***

All these rhyming words remind me of this song/video.

Now, contemplate the lyrics, as they are very meaningful.

“Mediate”, by INXS, is found on their album, “Kicks”, and was released in 1987. It was written by Andrew Farriss, and Michael Hutchence.

***

Hallucinate, desegregate
Mediate, alleviate
Try not to hate, love your mate
Don’t suffocate on your own hate
Designate your love as fate
A one-world state as human freight
The number eight, a white/black state
A gentle trait, a broken crate
A heavyweight or just too late
Like pretty Kate has sex ornate
Now devastate, appreciate
Depreciate, fabricate
Emulate, a truth dilate
Special date, the animal we ate
A guilt debate, the edge serrate
A better rate, the youth irate
Deliberate, fascinate
Deviate, reinstate
Liberate, too moderate
Recreate or detonate
Annihilate, atomic fate
Mediate, clear the slate
Activate, now radiate
A perfect state, a food on plate
Gravitate, the Earth’s own weight
Designate your love as fate
At ninety-eight we all rotate
Hallucinate, desegregate
Mediate, alleviate
Try not to hate, love your mate
Don’t suffocate on your own hate
Designate your love as fate
A one-world state as human freight
The number eight, a white/black state
A gentle trait, the broken crate
A heavyweight or just too late
Like pretty Kate has sex ornate
Now devastate, appreciate
Depreciate, fabricate
Emulate, truth dilate
The special date, the animals we ate
Guilt debate, the edge serrate
A better rate, a youth irate
Deliberate, fascinate
Deviate and reinstate
And liberate
To liberate
Liberate
Liberate

Today Helen has asked us to find songs with the subject of natural disasters. Thanks, Helen!

Quite a few songs came to mind when I read the prompt, but I went with this one. It kind of gives me the chills, as I know exactly how it feels to be in a tornado, as I was in one in 1970.

“Crazy Train”, by Ozzy Osbourne, was released in 1980, from the album, “Blizzard of Oz”. It was written by Bob Daisley, Ozzy Osbourne, and Randy Rhoads, and is on the Jet/Epic label.

All aboard! Ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaa!

Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay

Crazy, but that’s how it goes
Millions of people living as foes
Maybe it’s not too late
To learn how to love
And forget how to hate

Mental wounds not healing
Life’s a bitter shame
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train

Let’s Go!

I’ve listened to preachers
I’ve listened to fools
I’ve watched all the dropouts
Who make their own rules
One person conditioned to rule and control
The media sells it and you live the role

Mental wounds still screaming
Driving me insane
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train

I know that things are going wrong for me
You gotta listen to my words
Yeah

Heirs of a cold war
That’s what we’ve become
Inheriting troubles I’m mentally numb
Crazy, I just cannot bear
I’m living with something’ that just isn’t fair

Mental wounds not healing
Who and what’s to blame
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train

51 Weeks/51 Songs From the Past – Finale – and Just Jot It January – Memories

51 Weeks/51 Songs From the Past – Finale  

51 Weeks: 51 Songs From The Past: Week 51: Paul McCartney & Wings – Mull Of Kintyre

***

This is the final week of Hugh’s challenge. I’ll be sad to see it end, but he has mentioned there will be something new coming up soon. Thanks for hosting, Hugh! I’ve enjoyed listening to lots of music during the year, some old favorites, and some new to me. It was fun to find songs to go with your prompt. 🙂

So, we are to find a favorite song that we’d like to hear for the New Year. I’m not sure if it is to be a song about New Year’s Day, or just a favorite of mine.

The song I listened to the most this year is the one I’ll go with. It was the favorite of mine for the year.

Memories…

I know I’ve featured this song a few times on the blog, but I think it works for a New Year song, too. It seems to speak to the tragedy of Alzheimer’s, in that many memories are lost, but at times a glimmer of those memories may flash back to you. Also, that things may be different, yet there is always a new beginning. What I get too, is that it is the start of a brand new year, and a time to make new memories.

“The Bliss”, by Volbeat, was released in 2016, from the album, “Seal the Deal & Let’s Boogie”. It’s written by Michael Poulsen.

For SLS Helen has asked for songs about sugar and candy. Thanks, Helen!

There are so many good ones to choose from, so I couldn’t resist, and chose two. The first one I heard lots of times on the radio back then. The second one I heard lots of times, and saw the video since MTV aired it a lot.

Anyway, they are both good, so hope you enjoy listening to them. 🙂

“Sugar Shack”, by Jimmy Gilmer and the Fireballs, was released from the album, “Sugar Shack”, in 1963. It was written by Fay Voss, Keith McCormack, and Jimmy Torres, and is on the Dot label.

There’s a crazy little shack beyond the tracks
And everybody calls it the sugar shack
Well, its just a coffeehouse and its made out of wood
Espresso coffee tastes mighty good
That’s not the reason why I’ve got to get back
To that sugar shack, whoa baby
To that sugar shack.

There’s this cute little girlie, she’s a-working there
A black leotard and her feet are bare
I’m gonna drink a lot of coffee, spend a little cash
Make that girl love me when I put on some trash
You can understand why I’ve got to get back
To that sugar shack, whoa baby
To that sugar shack, yeah honey
To that sugar shack, whoa yes
To that sugar shack

Now that sugar shack queen is a-married to me, yeah yeah
We just sit around and dream of those old memories
Ah, but one of these days I’m gonna lay down tracks
In the direction of that sugar shack
Just me and her yes were gonna go back
To that sugar shack,
Whoa uh oh
O that sugar shack, yeah honey
To our sugar shack

Yea, yea, yea, our sugar shack

Razzle ‘n’ a dazzle ‘n’ a flash a little light
Television lover, baby, go all night
Sometime, anytime, sugar me sweet

Song Lyric Sunday – Danger

Standard

Song Lyric Sunday – Danger

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 12/24/17

***

Today, for SLS, Helen has asked us to find songs about “Danger”. Thanks, Helen!

Interesting prompt for right here at Christmas time. I had to look up some, to get an idea. There were a lot of titles I’d never heard of, and then there were songs about dangerous women, end of the world scenarios, and all sorts of other dangers.

Anyway…I chose this one. It was a YouTube video that was thought up by an Australian company and was to be a public service announcement campaign for their Metro train.

It’s a cute animated video, highlighting lots of dangers that a person should never do, or you might die. Good advice presented in a humorous way.

***

“Dumb Ways to Die”, sung by Emily Lubitz and Ollie McGill, of the band, Tangerine Kitty, was uploaded to YouTube in 2012. It was written by John Mescall, and produced by Cinnamon Darwall, and animated by Julian Frost.

***

Set fire to your hair
Poke a stick at a grizzly bear
Eat medicines that’s out of date
Use your private parts as piranha baitDumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to dieGet your toast out with a fork
Do your own electrical work
Teach yourself how to fly
Eat a two week old unrefrigerated pieDumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Invite a psycho-killer inside
Scratch your drug dealer’s brand new ride
Take your helmet off in outer space
Use your clothes dryer as a hiding place

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Keep a rattlesnake as pet
Sell both the kidneys on the internet
Eat a tube of superglue
“I wonder what’s this red button do?”

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Dress up like a moose during hunting season
Disturb a nest of wasps for no good reason
Stand on the edge of a train station platform
Drive around the boom gates at a level crossing
Run across the tracks between the platforms
They may not rhyme but they’re quite possibly

Dumbest ways to die ie
Dumbest ways to die
Dumbest ways to die
So many dumb
So many dumb ways to die

Be safe around trains. A message from Metro

Standard

It’s Only Make Believe  – Song Lyric Sunday – Pretending 

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 12/17/17

Today for SLS, Helen has asked for songs about pretending. Thanks, Helen!

I’m thinking to pretend something and to make believe something is going to happen, is about the same thing. Little kids play at pretending they are someone else, like a super hero, or just about anyone or anything, all the time. They live in a world of make believe a lot of the time.

Grown ups, too, sometimes pretend things are all right, even when they know it’s just wishful thinking, and make believe.

This song seems to show how a relationship seems fine on the outside, and to other people, when actually they are just pretending to get along.

“It’s Only Make Believe”, by Conway Twitty, was released as a single in 1958, from his album, “Sings”. It was written by Jack Nance and Conway Twitty, and is on the MGM label.

Song Lyric Sunday – Courage

Standard

Song Lyric Sunday – Courage

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 12/3/17

***

Today, for SLS, Helen has asked us to consider songs about courage. Thanks, Helen, for all the interesting prompts you provide.

There are lots of songs I found that deal with courage, bravery, and standing up for what you believe in. The one I chose today, is by a wonderful artist, Jana Stanfield.

I’ve been to three of her concerts, and have talked with her. She even sat and had supper with my daughter and me before one of them. She is a great humanitarian and motivational speaker, and travels the world speaking her message. She says her music is ‘heavy mental’, and is ‘music with a message’, and I find this is so true.

“If I Were Brave”, by Jana Stanfield, was written by Jana Stanfield, and Jimmy Scott, in 1998. This song along with many more beautiful songs, can be found on her CD, “Brave Faith”.

Jana Stanfield – If I Were Brave Lyrics

Artist: Jana Stanfield

Album: Brave Faith

“If I Were Brave” – Jana Stanfield

What would I do, if I knew that I could not fail?
If I believed, would the wind always fill up my sail?
How far would I go? What could I achieve,
trusting the hero in me?

If I were brave, I’d walk the razor’s edge,
where fools and dreamers dare to tread.
I’d never lose faith, even when losing my way.
What step would I take today, if I were brave?

What would I do today, if I were brave?
What would I do today, if I were brave?

What if we’re all meant to do what we secretly dream?
What would you ask, if you knew you could have anything?
Like the mighty oak sleeps, in the heart of a seed,
are there miracles in you and me?

If I were brave, I’d walk the razor’s edge,
where fools and dreamers dare to tread.
I’d never lose faith, even when losing my way.
What step would I take today, if I were brave?

What would I do today, if I were brave?
What would I do today, if I were brave?

If I refuse to listen to the voice of fear,
would the voice of courage whisper in my ear?

If I were brave, I’d walk the razor’s edge,
where fools and dreamers dare to tread.
I’d never lose faith, even when losing my way.
What step would I take today, if I were brave?

What would I do today, if I were brave?
What would I do today, if I were brave?
