Song Lyric Sunday – Peace

Song Lyric Sunday – Peace

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/22/17

***

Today, for Song Lyric Sunday, Helen has asked us to find peace. Thanks, Helen!

There’s lots of songs about peace. I’ve featured so  many on here, I thought I’d go in a different genre this time. This time it is Gospel. It’s one of my favorites that I’ve heard lots of times over the years.

***

“Peace in the Valley”, was written in 1937, by Thomas A. Dorsey. It was originally written for Mahalia Jackson, but many more artists have covered it in their own way. This version, by Willie Nelson, is one I really enjoyed listening to. This is his performance at Live at Farm Aid in 1994.

***

***

I’m tired and weary
But I must go along
Till the Lord comes to call me away, oh Lord

Well, the morning is bright
And the Lamb is the Light
And the night is as fair as the day

Oh, there will be peace in the valley for me, for me
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray
No more sadness, no more sadness, no more trouble there’ll be
There will be peace in the valley for me, for me

Well, the bear will be gentle
The wolf will be tame
And the lion shall lay down with the lamb, oh yes

And the [Incomprehensible] from the wild
Will be led by a child
I’ll be changed from this creature that I am

Oh, there will be peace in the valley for me some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, I pray
No more sadness, no more sadness, no more trouble there’ll be
There will be peace in the valley for me, for me

Song Lyric Sunday – Bragging

Standard

Song Lyric Sunday – Bragging

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/15/17

***

Thanks for hosting the SLS Challenge, Helen!

Here it is Monday, and I’m just doing the Song Lyric Sunday. 🙂

The prompt word that Helen suggests is ‘bragging’. Songs about bragging on yourself, I think. It was a bit hard to find one that I’d heard of that had anything to do with bragging. This one seems about right. I don’t know if that’s really the intention of this song, but to me the lyrics seem to say she is so wonderful, and thinks so highly of herself, that only the best things will do for her. That goes for boyfriends, as well as material objects that are offered to her.

***

“Material Girl”, by Madonna, was released from her album, “Like a Virgin”, in 1985. It was written by Peter Brown, and Robert Rans, and is on the Sire – Warner Bros. label.

***

Some boys kiss me, some boys hug me
I think they’re O.K.
If they don’t give me proper credit
I just walk away

They can beg and they can plead
But they can’t see the light, that’s right
‘Cause the boy with the cold hard cash
Is always Mister Right, ’cause we are

[Chorus:]
Living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl

Some boys romance, some boys slow dance
That’s all right with me
If they can’t raise my interest then I
Have to let them be

Some boys try and some boys lie but
I don’t let them play
Only boys that save their pennies
Make my rainy day, ’cause they are

[Chorus x2]

Living in a material world (material)
Living in a material world
[repeat]

Boys may come and boys may go
And that’s all right you see
Experience has made me rich
And now they’re after me, ’cause everybody’s

[Chorus x2]

A material, a material, a material, a material world

Living in a material world (material)
Living in a material world
[repeat and fade]

Today’s Song Lyric Sunday prompt is for songs about traveling. Thanks for hosting and the prompts, Helen!

There are lots of songs having to do with traveling. I, of course wanted to post a bunch, but chose this one. It has an interesting history.

First written by Australian, Geoff  Mack, back in 1959, this song has been covered many times by many artists. Some covers changed the words and locations mentioned to reflect their own country’s town and city names. There is a version for Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, North America, and many more.

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

Standard

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”.

All About That Bass – Song Lyric Sunday – Self Love

Standard

All About That Bass – Song Lyric Sunday – Self Love

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/1/17

***

Today’s prompt for Song Lyric Sunday is ‘Self Love’.

Thanks, Helen, for hosting this challenge, and the prompts you provide. 🙂

***

The way I’m taking this, is everyone should try to get rid of negative feelings about yourself. You know, all the interior thoughts a person may have, that they aren’t good enough, pretty enough, smart enough, and on and on.

There are lots of songs about positive affirmations, and I wanted to put more than one on here, but I chose this one. It is one of my favorites, because it says it doesn’t matter what you look like, what other people say about you, and that you are wonderful, just the way you are. It’s a happy, uplifting song about having a positive body image.

***

“All About That Bass”, by Meghan Trainor, was released in 2014, from the album, “Title”. It was written by Meghan Trainor, and Kevin Kadish, and is on the Epic label.

Because you know I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass… bass… bass… bassYeah, it’s pretty clear, I ain’t no size two
But I can shake it, shake it, like I’m supposed to do
‘Cause I got that boom boom that all the boys chase
And all the right junk in all the right places

I see the magazine workin’ that Photoshop
We know that shit ain’t real, come on now, make it stop
If you got beauty, beauty, just raise ’em up
‘Cause every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top

Yeah, my mama she told me “don’t worry about your size”
(Shoo wop wop, sha-ooh wop wop)
She says, “Boys like a little more booty to hold at night”
(That booty, uh, that booty booty)
You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
(Shoo wop wop, sha-ooh wop wop)
So if that’s what you’re into, then go ‘head and move along

Because you know I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass… Hey!

I’m bringing booty back
Go ‘head and tell them skinny bitches that
No, I’m just playing, I know you think you’re fat
But I’m here to tell you…
Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top

Yeah my mama she told me, “don’t worry about your size”
(Shoo wop wop, sha-ooh wop wop)
She says, “Boys like a little more booty to hold at night”
(That booty booty, uh, that booty booty)
You know I won’t be no stick figure, silicone Barbie doll
So if that’s what you’re into, then go ‘head and move along

Because you know I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass…

Because you know I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I said I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass…

Because you know I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass… Hey!
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass… Hey!
I’m all about that bass
Bout that bass…
Hey!
Yeah yeah… ohh… You know you like this bass… Hey…

These are my cute, light activated skeleton and flower.

I’m still learning how to make videos, and this is one of my first tries. It looks big, but when you click on it, it goes to a more normal size. 🙂

Mötley Crüe – Smokin’ In The Boys Room Lyrics

Did you ever seem to have one of those days
When everyone seemed to be on your case
From your teacher all the way down to your best girlfriend
Well that used to happen to me all the time
But I found a way to get out of itSittin’ in the classroom thinkin’ it’s a drag
Listening to the teacher rap just ain’t my bag
When two bells ring you know it’s my cue
Gonna meet the boys on floor number 2[Chorus]
Smokin’ in the boys room
Smokin’ in the boys room
Teacher don’t you fill me up with your rules
Everybody knows that smokin’ ain’t allowed in schoolCheckin’ out the halls makin’ sure the coast is clear
Lookin’ in the stalls, nah, there ain’t nobody here
My buddies Sixx, Mick and Tom
To get caught would surely be the death of us all[Chorus]Put me to work in the school bookstore
Check-out counter, and I got bored
Teacher was lookin’ for me all around
Two hours later you know where I was found[Chorus]Smokin’ in the boys room
Smokin’ in the boys room[Chorus]One more time

[Chorus]

51 Weeks: 51 Songs From The Past: Week 37: Justin Haywood – Forever Autumn

Thanks for hosting the challenge, Hugh! You always have interesting prompts. 🙂

***

This time, if I understand the prompt, we are to feature a song that we would record ourselves. I would suppose this would be a cover song of one we like.

I can’t sing or carry a tune at all, but I like to sing along to my favorites. If I could sing, without it sounding horrible, this would be one of them.

We’ve been listening to Kasey Chambers’ songs for a long time, and like most all of them. I’ve even heard her in an interview, a long time ago, on ABC (Australian Broadcast Corp.), on my shortwave radio. She does lots of worldwide concert tours, and if she ever came here, I’d go for sure.

“Not Pretty Enough”, by Kasey Chambers, is from her album, “Barricades and Brickwalls”, and released in 2002. It was written by Kasey Chambers, and is on the EMI label.
