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

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

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 3/11/18

***

Today for SLS, Helen asked us to find songs about ‘unity’. I found a lot of songs with this theme, and really like this one. I’ve heard it many times, and agree with the lyrics and thoughts of this song.

Thanks for all the fun and interesting prompts, Helen!

“Get Together”, by the Youngbloods, was released in 1966, from their album, “The Youngbloods”. It was written by Chet Powers, and is on the RCA Victor label.

This video is a bit blurry, but I still like it better than just a one photo of the band.

[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

1, 2, 3, 4 – Song Lyric Sunday – Numbers

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 3/4/18

***

Hey, y’all! Happy Sunday!

It’s time for another SLS, and Helen has asked us for songs with numbers. Thanks, Helen!

Helen mentioned how people tend to see numbers in a funny way. I know I’ve seen the numbers on the clock read 1:11, or 11:11, and usually take note of it. Sometimes I see the numbers in order, as 12:34, and this morning I woke up at 5:55.

Is there some special meaning to seeing numbers like this? I don’t know if there is any significance to it, but it’s fun to think there is, and maybe we’re supposed to make a wish!

***

This song I chose, I’ve heard on the radio a few times, and always liked it. I had no idea who sang it, or the title, but knew it had numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 in it. So, I just typed in 1 2 3 4 song, and yay! it was the right one! 🙂

I think it is just a simple and sweet song, don’t you!

***

“1, 2, 3, 4”, by the Plain White T’s, was released in 2008, from their album, “Big Bad World”. It was written by Tom Higgensen, and is on the Hollywood label.

Where Do the Children Play – Song Lyric Sunday

Standard

Where Do the Children Play – Song Lyric Sunday

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 2/18/18

***

For SLS today, Helen has suggested songs about the Earth. There’s many ways to interpret this, as in saving Earth’s resources, Earth Day activities, world peace, going green, and many others.

My thoughts on this song is that yes, we’ve come a long way in commerce and technology, but at what price? More and more green spaces are being taken over by the progression of more buildings, and concrete everywhere. Wilderness areas are slowly disappearing, wildlife is being forced out, and pollution is everywhere. This seems to benefit nobody, in my opinion. Indeed, where do the children have left to play?

Thanks for the prompt, Helen!

***

“Where Do the Children Play”, by Cat Stevens, can be found on his album, “Tea For the Tillerman”. It was released in 1970, was written by Cat Stevens, and is on the Island Records label.

Where Do The Children Play
Well I think it’s fine, building jumbo planes.
Or taking a ride on a cosmic train.
Switch on summer from a slot machine.
Yes, get what you want to if you want,
Cause you can get anything.
I know we’ve come a long way,
We’re changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?
Well you roll on roads over fresh green grass.
For your lorry loads pumping petrol gas.
And you make them long, and you make them tough.
But they just go on and on, and it seems that you can’t get off.
Oh, I know we’ve come a long way,
We’re changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?
Well you’ve cracked the sky, scrapers fill the air.
But will you keep on building higher
‘Til there’s no more room up there?
Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry?
Will you tell us when to live, will you tell us when to die?
I know we’ve come a long way,
We’re changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?

Wichita Lineman – Song Lyric Sunday

Standard

Wichita Lineman – Song Lyric Sunday

***

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 2/11/18

***

This week for Song Lyric Sunday, Helen has suggested songs about phones or phone calls. Thanks, Helen!

The one I chose to feature has to do with telephones, and the lines that carry the transmission of the calls. This song tells about the people who go out to repair the lines…or at least this one, who is feeling lonely. He thinks he can hear his love’s voice in the whine of the wind through the lines. Have you ever heard this eerie noise? I have, and it is a lonely sound. You can imagine thousands of voices coursing through the lines, all at the same time.

Now I probably should look up some technical information about how our phone calls happen, but this isn’t what I want to do. I have no idea how it works. I’m pretty sure telephone lines are still used, since I see the telephone poles, but as for cell phones, maybe it goes through the air, or bounces off some satellite up in space? Well, that’s something to look into another day.

For now, just enjoy this classic song, from Glen Campbell.

***

“Wichita Lineman”, by Glen Campbell, was released from his album of the same name, in 1968. It was written by Jimmy Webb, and is on the Capitol label.

***

***

I am a lineman for the county
And I drive the main road

Searchin’ in the sun for another overload

I hear you singing in the wire
I can hear you thru the whine

And the Wichita lineman
Is still on the line

{Hook}

I know I need a small vacation
But it don’t look like rain
And if it snows that stretch down south
Won’t ever stand the strain

And I need you more than want you
And I want you for all time

And the Wichita lineman
Is still on the line

{Bridge}

And I need you more than want you
And I want you for all time
And the Wichita lineman
Is still on the line

Miles Away/The Truth Is  – Song Lyric Sunday – Truth

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 2/4/18

***

Today’s prompt is ‘Truth’. Helen asked us to find songs dealing with the truth. Thanks, Helen.

This one was a little bit hard for me. I looked up all kinds of combinations of songs about truth, and none of them held any interest for me, as I’d never heard them, or most of the artists.

I figured I’d just skip this one. I think we’d already done a prompt for honesty, and lying. (I may be mistaken). Anyway, I took a break, then looked a bit more for something.

How I came upon this one I chose, was completely by random. I’d heard of Depeche Mode before, and liked a few of their songs, so why not listen to this one. It has truth in the title, after all. And…I like it! It’s a new one for me, and maybe for you, too. What do you think?

***

“Miles Away/The Truth Is”, by Depeche Mode, was released as a studio album in 2009, called “Sounds of the Universe”.  It was written by Dave Gahan, Christian Eigner, and Andrew Phillpott, and is on the Mute label.

Song Lyric Sunday – Good-bye

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 1/28/18

Today’s challenge for Song Lyric Sunday, Helen has asked for songs about good-bye or farewell. Thanks, Helen!

There were so many good ones that I liked, it was hard to pick just one. I went with these two oldies. I like both of these, and really, I can probably sing the lyrics to both without looking, I’d heard them so much way back then.

Hope you enjoy hearing these. 🙂

Lyrics
When I see her comin’ down the street
I get so shaky and I feel so weak
I tell my eyes look the other way
But they don’t seem to hear a word I say
And I, go to pieces and I want to hide
Go to pieces and I almost die
Every time my baby passes by
I tell my arms they’ll hold someone new
Another love that will be true
But they don’t listen, they don’t seem to care
They reach for her but she’s not there
And I, go to pieces and I want to hide
Go to pieces and I almost die
Every time my baby passes by
I remember what she said when she said
“Goodbye baby. We’ll meet again soon maybe.”
“But until we do, all my best to you.”
I’m so lonely, I think about her only
I go to places we used to go
But I know she’ll never show
She hurt me so much inside
Now I hope she’s satisfied
And I, go to pieces and I want to hide
Go to pieces and I almost die
Every time my baby passes by
Go to pieces and I cry
Every time my baby passes by
Go to pieces and I cry

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)
