Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 6/3/18

Today for SLS, Helen has given us the prompt of finding songs about smiles. The prompt was suggested by fellow blogger, Jim. Thanks to both of you.

Jim can be found blogging at, “A Unique Title for Me”. https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/

If you’d like to join in this fun, weekly challenge, just click the Song Lyric Sunday Theme link, which is above, to find out how it works.

For me, this was a hard one to find songs that had smile in the title or lyrics. Then, I found this one. I think the My Little Ponies are so cute, and yay! they had a smile song. Hope you enjoy the video and song, and that it brings a smile to you, too. 🙂

“Smile Song”, by Pinkie Pie, is actually sung by Shannon Chan-Kent, and Andrea Libman. It was written by Amy Keating Rogers. It can be found on the album, “Songs of Friendship & Magic”.

Let Me Go, Lover – Song Lyric Sunday – Let It Go

Standard

Let Me Go, Lover – Song Lyric Sunday – Let It Go IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 5/27/18

***

Today for SLS, Helen gave us the prompt of ‘Let It Go’. Thanks, Helen!

***

This one turned out to be hard for me. All I could hear in my head after reading the prompt was that song from the movie, “Frozen”, which was “Let It Go”. After googling for awhile, I didn’t see anything that seemed to fit, at least to my way of thinking. Finally, this very old classic popped into my mind. I don’t know why, as I’ve not heard or thought about this song in forever.

Instead of letting ‘it’ go it is about letting go of a lover, because it’s just not working out. Maybe?

Anyway, enjoy this oldie from long ago.

***

“Let Me Go, Lover”, by Patti Page is her cover version of the song, which was sung originally by Joan Weber. It was written by Jenny Lou Carson, and Al Hill, and topped the Billboard charts in 1954. It’s on the Mercury label.

I listened to the original one, and I like this one better, and is probably the one I used to hear on the radio.

***

***

Oh, let me go
Let me go
Let me go, lover
Let me be
Set me free
From your spell

You made me weep
Cut me deep
I can’t sleep, lover
I was cursed
From the first
Day I fell

You don’t want me
But you want me
To go on wanting you
Now I pray that
You will say that
We’re through

Please turn me loose
What’s the use?
Let me go, lover
Let me go
Let me go
Let me go

You made me weep
Cut me deep
I can’t sleep, lover
I was cursed
From the first
Day I fell

You don’t want me
But you want me
To go on wanting you
Now I pray that
You will say that
We’re through

Please turn me loose
What’s the use?
Let me go, lover
Let me go
Let me go
Let me go

L’Aigle Noir – Song Lyric Sunday -The Name’s the Same

Standard

Song Lyric Sunday – Name’s the Same IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 5/20/18

***

Today’s SLS is a bit different. We’re supposed to find a song by someone that has the same name as ours. Here’s what Helen has said:

So, let’s just get right to it.  Put your thinking caps on, break out your playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week, brought to us by the lovely Kirstwrites, is “a song from an artist/singer who shares your name”.   While this might be a difficult challenge, you could always just post a favorite song if you aren’t able to find an artist/singer that shares your name along with a song you like.  We’ve got to make it difficult sometimes, right?

Thanks Helen and Kirstwrites! 🙂

***

So, I could only think of two singers with my name, Barbara. Those were Barbra Streisand, and Barbara Mandrell. While these are very well-known and I do like some of their songs, I wanted something different and new to me. I spent some time googling, and you know what, there aren’t that many singers named, or called Barbara that I could find. Shocking, I know, as you’d think there would be a lot. Oh well, I kept on looking until I found this one, and I’d never heard it, but turns out it was a really beautiful song. The video is also so enchanting.

The singer is Monique Andree Serf, and goes by the stage name of Barbara. She sings in French, and the video’s lyrics are in French. I did find an English translation of the song. This song, “L’Aigle Noir” is said to have sold 1 million copies in only 12 hours!

Hope you enjoy hearing this song as much as I did.

***NOTE*** it says you have to click the YouTube symbol to watch the video there. 🙂

***

“L’Aigle Noir”, by Barbara (Monique Andree Serf), was released in 1961, from her album, “Unforgettable Melodies”, and was written by herself.

THE BLACK EAGLE ( Barbara)
1 One day or maybe one night
Near a lake, I fell asleep
When suddenly, it seemed to pierce the sky
And bolting from the blue popped up a black eagle
2 Slowly, spreading its wings
Slowly, I could see it twirling
Near me rustling its wings
As if it fell from the sky the bird came and settled.
3 Its eyes had the colour of ruby
And its wings had the colour of the night
And on its sparkling forehead
The crowned bird wore a blue diamond
4 It touched my cheek with its beak
And it slipped its neck into my hand
And then I recognized it
Popping up from the past, it came back to my mind
5 Oh tell me Bird, take me away
Let’s go back to our old land
Like before in my childish dreams
to pick up shivering some stars, some stars
6 Like before in my childish dreams
Like before on a white cloud
Like before to lit up the sun
And be a rain-maker and make marvels.
7 The black eagle rustling its wings
Flew off to reach back the sky
8 Four feathers with the colour of the night
One teardrop or maybe a ruby
I was cold, there was nothing left of me
The bird left me alone with my sorrow
9 One day or was it one night
Near a lake, I fell asleep
When suddenly, it seemed to pierce the sky
And bolting from the blue popped up a black eagle

Heart I Hear You Beating – Song Lyric Sunday – Heart

Heart I Hear You Beating – Song Lyric Sunday – Heart  IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 5/13/18

***

Today for SLS, Helen has asked us to consider songs about the word ‘heart’. Thanks, Helen!

***

There are so many songs with the title or lyrics that include the word heart, but I can’t put them all on here, so I just went with this one.

This song is the very first one that I thought of that mentions ‘heart’. It’s an oldie, but one of my favorites from the way back music machine.

So, may I present Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton, singing…

***

“Heart I Hear You Beating”, by Wayne Newton, appears on his 1965 album, “Red Roses For a Blue Lady”. It was written by Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, and is on the Capitol label.

***

***

(I think these lyrics are a bit off, out of order or something, but everywhere I looked they were all pretty much the same.)

***

Oh, heart
I hear you beating
But her heart just
Ain’t beating like you

Oh, heart
You gotta watch out now
Or else she’s gonna
Break you in two

Oh, heart, you better believe me
Save yourself for somebody new

Don’t make such a fuss
There’s no hope for us
She don’t care the
Way that you do

Oh, heart
Please stop your pounding
Don’t settle yourself for
Something that’s wrong

Oh, heart
Now don’t let her hear you
Come on now
You gotta be strong

Oh, heart, you better believe me
Save yourself for somebody new

Don’t make such a fuss
There’s no hope for us
She don’t care the
Way that you do

Let me tell you now, heart
(Now be careful, heart)
I’m going crazy
(Now be careful, heart)
Can you hear a word that I say
(Now be careful, heart)

Oh, heart
(Now be careful, heart)
She doesn’t want you
(Now be careful, heart)
There’s no use
In acting this way
(Now be careful, heart)

Yes, I’m telling you, heart
(Won’t you be careful, heart)
You better believe me
(Won’t you be careful, heart)
Save yourself for somebody new
(Won’t you be careful, heart)

Don’t make such a fuss
There’s no hope for us
She don’t care the
Way that you do
(Now be careful, heart)

Yes, I’m telling you, heart
(Won’t you be careful, heart)
You better watch out
(Now be careful, heart)

I’m telling you, heart, heart, heart
(Won’t you be careful, heart)
Now watch out, you heart
(Won’t you be careful, heart)…

Sympathy for the Devil – Song Lyric Sunday – Devil/Demon IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 5/6/18

***

Well, today for SLS we have the opposite or the flip side to last week’s prompt, which was Angel. Yep, today Helen has asked us for songs using the word ‘devil or demon’. I’m pretty sure there are quite a few to choose from. Thanks, Helen!

To join in this weekly, fun music challenge, you can find details at the above link.

***

***

“Sympathy for the Devil,” by the Rolling Stones, was released from their album, “Beggars Banquet”, in 1968. It was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and is on the Decca label.

***

Sympathy for the Devil
Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
I’ve been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man’s soul to waste
And I was ’round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
I stuck around St. Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank
Held a general’s rank
When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah
(Woo woo, woo woo)
I watched with glee
While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades
For the gods they made
(Woo woo, woo woo)
I shouted out,
“Who killed the Kennedys?”
When after all
It was you and me
(Who who, who who)
Let me please introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay
(Woo woo, who who)
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
(Who who)
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby
(Who who, who who)
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what’s confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
(Woo woo, who who)
Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails
Just call me Lucifer
‘Cause I’m in need of some restraint
(Who who, who who)
So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
(Woo woo)
Use all your well-learned politesse
Or I’ll lay your soul to waste, mm yeah
(Woo woo, woo woo)
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, mm yeah
(Who who)
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, mm mean it, get down
(Woo woo, woo woo)
Woo, who
Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!
(Woo woo)
Tell me baby, what’s my name
Tell me honey, can ya guess my name
Tell me baby, what’s my name
I tell you one time, you’re to blame
Oh, who
Woo, woo
Woo, who
Woo, woo
Woo, who, who
Woo, who, who
Oh, yeah
What’s my name
Tell me, baby, what’s my name
Tell me, sweetie, what’s my name
Woo, who, who
Woo, who, who
Woo, who, who
Woo, who, who
Woo, who, who
Woo, who, who
Oh, yeah
Woo woo
Woo woo

Girl, you’re looking fine tonight
And every guy has got you in his sight
What you’re doing with a clown like me
Is surely one of life’s little mysteriesSo tonight I’ll ask the stars above
“How did I ever win your love?”
What did I do?
What did I say
To turn your angel eyes my way?Well, I’m the guy who never learned to dance
Never even got one second glance
Across a crowded room was close enough
I could look but I could never touchSo tonight I’ll ask, the stars above
“How did I ever win your love?”
What did I do?
What did I say
To turn your angel eyes my way?Don’t anyone wake me
If it’s just a dream
Cause she’s the best thing
Ever happened to me

But this girl you see
She’s leavin’ here with me tonight

There’s just one more thing that I need to know
If this is love why does it scare me so?
It must be somethin’ only you can see
Cause girl I feel it when you look at me

So tonight I’ll ask the stars above
“How did I ever win your love?”
What did I do?
What did I say
To turn your angel eyes my way?
Hey, hey, hey, yeah, awww

Nobody’s Home – Song Lyric Sunday – Lights

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 4/8/18

***

Today for SLS Helen has challenged us to find songs with the word, ‘lights’. Thanks, Helen!

***

I wasn’t inspired by looking through the list of songs with ‘light’ or ‘lights’ in the title or lyrics. I liked a lot of the songs, but I wanted to do something different. Now, this song I chose won’t be to everyone’s taste, as it is hard rock/metal, or however it’s classified. But, I’ve always liked this band, and have all their music, either on cassette tape or CD.

***

“Nobody’s Home”, by Shotgun Messiah, can be found on their album, “Second Coming”. It was released in 1991, on the Relativity Records label, and was written by Tim Skold and Harry Cody.

“If you’d like to make a call
Please hang up and try again
If you need help
Hang up and then dial your operator”

Just another day, livin’ in a dream
Doesn’t make no difference, nothin’s what it seems
Had it up to here, gotta get away
Think I’m goin’ crazy, don’t know what I s-s-s-say

I would go insane if I had a brain

Weirdorama, psychodome
The lights are on but nobody’s home
Weirdorama, psychodome
The lights are on but nobody’s home
Nobody’s home

Majorly confused, don’t know what to feel
Soon I’m gonna lose it, nothin’ is for real

Me, I’m just like you, I don’t have a clue

Weirdorama, psychodome
The lights are on but nobody’s home
Weirdorama, psychodome
The lights are on but nobody’s home
Nobody’s home

I would go insane if I had a brain

Weirdorama, psychodome
The lights are on but nobody’s home

Weirdorama, psychodome
The lights are on but nobody’s home
Weirdorama, psychodome
The lights are on but nobody’s home
Nobody’s home

Gettin’ lovey-dovey with my semi-automatic
Trippin’ on acid and TV static
Civilization turned creature feature
The Jung at heart are going back to Nietzsche
Leave name and number after the tone
‘Cause nobody’s home
Nobody’s home
Nobody’s home!

The Night Has a Thousand Eyes – Song Lyric Sunday

Standard

The Night Has a Thousand Eyes – Song Lyric Sunday

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 3/25/18

***

Today, Helen has asked us to find songs with the subject of ‘seeing’. Thanks, Helen.

This is the first song I thought of. It was pretty popular, and played on the radio a lot back in 1962. I always liked the song, and why I remember it is because of my birthday that year. I was 12 years old, and for a present, my parents got me a transistor radio. It was the first one I ever had. We were going over to  my grandparent’s house for lunch that day, and I was already listening to my radio. This song is the very first song I heard on it.

I had that radio for many years, and listened to lots of good music, and even stayed awake long into the night to hear far off radio programs. That would be a habit of mine for a long time. I’d put the radio under my pillow, and could hear stations from all over the United States. The programs were music, comedy albums, talk programs, call in programs, and all kinds of things.

That was one reason I love radio, even to this day. I still listen to one of my many transistor radios, daily, and even my shortwave radio, and police scanner radio. The other reason is because my dad built from scratch his own ham radio, and we’d listen to that, too.

Later on, after I married, my husband was sent to Viet Nam. I’d send him care packages every week, and I sent this radio to him. He enjoyed listening to it, too. My husband came back from the war just fine, but he left the radio for others to listen to. So, you could say this special radio had a great history.

Anyway, here’s the song. Hope you enjoy listening to it, too. 🙂

***

“The Night Has a Thousand Eyes”, by Bobby Vee, was released from his album of the same name, in 1962. It is on the Liberty label, and was written by Benjamin Weisman, Dorothy Wayne, and Marilyn Garrett.

***

***

They say that you’re a runaround lover
Though you say it isn’t so
But if you put me down for another
I’ll know, believe me, I’ll know

‘Cause the night has a thousand eyes
And a thousand eyes can’t help but see if you are true to me
So remember when you tell those little white lies
That the night has a thousand eyes

You say that you’re at home when you phone me
And how much you really care
Though you keep telling me that you’re lonely
I’ll know if someone is there

‘Cause the night has a thousand eyes
And a thousand eyes can’t help but see if you are true to me
So remember when you tell those little white lies
That the night has a thousand eyes

One of these days you’re gonna be sorry
‘Cause your game I’m gonna play
And you’ll find out without really tryin’
Each time that my kisses stray

‘Cause the night has a thousand eyes
And a thousand eyes will see me too
And no matter what I do
I could never disguise all my little white lies
‘Cause the night has a thousand eyes

That the night has a thousand eyes

Shadow of a Ghost – Song Lyric Sunday

Standard

Shadow of a Ghost – Song Lyric Sunday

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 3/18/18

***

Today, for SLS, Helen has challenged us to find songs that have to do with shadows. Thanks, Helen!

This really was a challenge for me, because I couldn’t just think of one right off. I know there is the Moonshadow song by Cat Stevens, and I love it, but it seemed too obvious a choice. So, I looked on google for songs about shadows, and didn’t recognize any of them that were listed.

I then thought of typing in ‘ghost shadows’, because when do I not ever think about ghosts. Anyway, this song popped up, and I listened to it. I’d never heard of the singer, or the song. I was pleasantly surprised. This was a really good song, and it has great music.

Now, I don’t quite know what to say about the video. It is strange. There are zombies roaming around. First the singer is on stage singing, then there are zombies chasing her. Why? It’s like a horror movie type deal, but interesting to watch, and I wanted to follow the story to see what happened.

For a brand new to me song and singer, I give it a 10 out of 10. You know, I love horror stories, movies, and all things ghosts, so yeah, I liked this one a lot.

Anyway, give it a listen, see what you think.

***

“Shadow of a Ghost”, by Emma Lee, was released as a single from her album, “Backseat Heroine”, in 2012. It was written by Emma Lee and Karen Kosowski.

Red light, red light please turn green
Do you know what you’re doin’ to me?
Don’t you know I’ve got somewhere to be?
Midnight, midnight please come clean
Give me brand new air to breathe
Don’t you know I’m struggling?
When I need you most you’re a shadow of a ghost
You’re sleeping on the job
My slumbering god
When the whistle blows you’re a cinder in the smoke
So quick to disappear
I wonder are you even here?
Taxman, coming to collect
I’ve overpaid my debt
Don’t you know I’ve nothing left?
Thunder, thunder over head
Are you finished with me yet?
Don’t you know I’m soaking wet?
When I need you most you’re a shadow of a ghost
You’re sleeping on the job
My slumbering god
When the whistle blows you’re a cinder in the smoke
So quick to disappear
I wonder are you even here?
Even here…even here…even here…even here…
Goodbye, goodbye mystery
You’ve lead me to believe
My only hope is me

[Intro]

[Verse 1]
Love is but a song we sing
Fear’s the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why

[Chorus]
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

[Verse 2]
Some may come and some may go
We will surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment’s sunlight
Fading in the grass

[Chorus]
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

[Bridge]

[Chorus]
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

[Intro]

[Verse 3]
If you hear the song I sing
You will understand (listen!)
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both

It’s there at your command

[Chorus]
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

(I said) Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Right now
Right now
