Voices Carry – Song Lyric Sunday – Speak

Voices Carry – Song Lyric Sunday – Speak IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 7/22/18

***

It’s time for another SLS entry, with the prompt word ‘speak’. Thanks, Helen!

To join in the weekly fun, just click the above link. You will also see other entries of the day.

***

I kept looking for songs with ‘speak’ in the title or lyrics, and there were some, but nothing I could remember hearing before. So, I thought about just skipping this week, or at least posting a totally off topic song. That was last evening. This morning though, this song popped into my head. It seems to fit the theme in a way. Here’s why…

We speak our thoughts out loud, so they do carry out into the air, to whoever hears them. Or even just ourselves. We hear our own voice speaking. (yes, I do talk to myself all the time)

The lyrics to the song, and the video is trying to say that this woman is being manipulated, and her thoughts are being squashed down, by her boyfriend. I think this is emotional abuse. He is trying to make her change into someone that he wants her to be, and it’s not her true nature. He keeps telling her to shut up, that her voice doesn’t matter, and is less than his and his high society friends. She finally has had enough, and rises up with her own voice, to speak her truth. Yay for her! 🙂

“Voices Carry”, by ‘Til Tuesday, was released as a single from the album, “Voices Carry”, in 1985. It was written by Aimee Mann, and Joey Pesce, Robert Holmes, and Michael Hausman, and is on the Epic label.

Til Tuesday
Voices Carry
Voices Carry
I’m in the dark, I’d like to read his mind
but I’m frightened of the things I might find
Oh, there must be something he’s thinking of
to tear him away
when I tell him that I’m falling in love
why does he say
hush hush
keep it down now
voices carry
I try so hard not to get upset
because I know all the trouble I’ll get
oh, he tells me tears are something to hide
and something to fear
and I try so hard to keep it inside
so no one can hear
hush hush
keep it down now
voices carry
He wants me
but only part of the time
He wants me
if he can keep me in line
hush hush
keep it down now
voices carry
hush hush, darling, she might overhear
oh, no-voices carry
he said shut up he said shut up
oh God can’t you keep it down
voices carry

Rolling Stones – 19Th Nervous Breakdown Lyrics

Youre the kind of person
You meet at certain dismal dull affairs.
Center of a crowd, talking much too loud
Running up and down the stairs.
Well, it seems to me that you have seen too much in too few years.
And though youve tried you just can’t hide
Your eyes are edged with tears.You better stop
Look around
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown.When you were a child
You were treated kind
But you were never brought up right.
You were always spoiled with a thousand toys
But still you cried all night.
Your mother who neglected you
Owes a million dollars tax.
And your fathers still perfecting ways of making ceiling wax.You better stop, look around
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nilne-teenth nervous breakdown.Oh, whos to blame, that girls just insane.
Well nothing I do don’t seem to work,
It only seems to make matters worse. Oh please.

You were still in school
When you had that fool
Who really messed your mind.
And after that you turned your back
On treating people kind.
On our first trip
I tried so hard to rearrange your mind.
But after while I realized you were disarranging mine.

You better stop, look around
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown.
Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown
Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown

Songwriters: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger

The Name Game – Song Lyric Sunday – Games IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 7/1/18

Happy Sunday, and Happy July 1st! It’s time for another SLS, with a fun prompt from Helen! Today we are looking for songs about games, in whatever form that takes. Thanks, Helen! 🙂

***

Are you ready to get your toes tapping and your rhyming going? This one’s for you! Enjoy 🙂

This fun song is one I remember from years back. It is a catchy tune, easy to learn how to play the game, and fun to sing along.

***

“The Name Game”, by Shirley Ellis, is from her album of the same name, and was released in 1964. It was written by Shirley Ellis and Lincoln Chase, and is on the Congress label.

***

***

The name game!
Shirley!
Shirley, Shirley bo Birley Bonana fanna fo Firley

Fee fy mo Mirley, Shirley!
Lincoln!
Lincoln, Lincoln bo Bincoln Bonana fanna fo Fincoln

Fee fy mo Mincoln, Lincoln!
Come on everybody!
I say now let’s play a game
I betcha I can make a rhyme out of anybody’s name
The first letter of the name, I treat it like it wasn’t there
But a B or an F or an M will appear
And then I say bo add a B then I say the name and Bonana fanna and a
fo
And then I say the name again with an F very plain
and a fee fy and a mo
And then I say the name again with an M this time

and there isn’t any name that I can’t rhyme
Arnold!
Arnold, Arnold bo Barnold Bonana fanna fo Farnold

Fee fy mo Marnold Arnold!
But if the first two letters are ever the same
I drop them both and say the name like
Bob, Bob drop the B’s Bo ob
For Fred, Fred drop the F’s Fo red
For Mary, Mary drop the M’s Mo ary

That’s the only rule that is contrary.
Okay? Now say Bo: Bo
Now Tony with a B: Bony
Then Bonana fanna fo: bonana fanna fo
Then you say the name again with an F very plain: Fony
Then a fee fy and a mo: fee fy mo
Then you say the name again with an M this time: Mony

And there isn’t any name that you can’t rhyme
Say Tony, Tony, bo-bo-ney
bo-na-na fanna, fo-fo-ney
fee fi mo-mo-ney, Tony!
Let’s do Billy!
Billy, Billy, bo-gil-ly, bo-na-na
fanna, fo-fil-ly
fee fi mo-mil-ly, Billy!
Let’s do Marsha!
Marsha, Marsha, bo-bar-sha
bo-na-na fanna, fo-far-sha

Little trick with Nick!
Nick, Nick, bo-bick, bo-na-na

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

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
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

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)…

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!
