Last Train to Clarksville – Song Lyric Sunday – Last IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 12/2/18

***

Today, for SLS, Helen has given us the prompt word of ‘last’. Thanks, Helen!

I was coming up empty on this prompt. Even after looking at all kinds of song lists, I couldn’t find anything I wanted to use…except this one. I always liked the Monkees songs, and also their TV show.

I still have their vinyl albums and some 45 records. Here’s this one:

***

***

“Last Train to Clarksville”, by the Monkees, was released as a single from their album, “The Monkees” in 1966. It was written by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, and is on the Colgems label.

{verse}
Take the last train to Clarksville
And I’ll meet you at the station
You can be here by four thirty
Cause I made your reservation
Don’t be slow
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

Cause I’m leaving in the morning
And I must see you again
We’ll have one more night together
Till the morning brings my train and I must go
Oh no, no, no
Oh no, no, no

And I don’t know if I’m ever coming home

Take the last train to Clarksville
I’ll be waiting at the station
We’ll have time for coffee-flavored kisses
And a bit of conversation, oh
Oh no, no, no
Oh no, no, no

Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do

Take the last train to Clarksville
Now I must hang up the phone
I can’t hear you in this noisy railroad station all alone
I’m feeling low
Oh no, no, no
Oh no, no, no

And I don’t know if I’m ever coming home

Ohhh

Ahhhhhhh

Take the last train to Clarksville
And I’ll meet you at the station
You can be here by four thirty
Cause I made your reservation
Don’t be slow
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

And I don’t know if I’m ever coming home

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/25/18

For another fun and musical Sunday, for SLS, Helen has given us the prompt word of ‘first’. Thanks, Helen!

Join in by clicking the link above. If you enjoy music, you’ll be amazed at the variety of songs that are featured and discussed here every Sunday.

Well, I couldn’t think of anything at first, so looked on some lists for songs using the prompt word. I did find a few good ones, and even one I hadn’t heard before tht was cute and catchy about a first love that had ended. Also, one that I remember from way back, about a true love/first love. I had them both on here, but then… then… I found this one, and it is one I’ve heard many times, and love most all the artist’s songs. It fits the prompt very well, I think.

What put it over the top, and became my entry, was the video. It has kitties & birds! They are so adorable, I couldn’t resist. Hope you like it, too. 🙂

“Morning Has Broken”, by Cat Stevens, was released as a single from the album, “Teaser and the Firecat”, in 1971. It started out as a children’s hymn/poem, written by Eleanor Farjean, to be included in a hymn book, in 1931.

Listen to Me – Song Lyric Sunday – Listen

Standard

Listen to Me – Song Lyric Sunday – Listen IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/18/18

***

For SLS, Helen has asked us to consider songs with the word ‘listen’. Thanks, Helen!

This is a bit funny, because the song I chose last week was called, “Listen”, by Collective Soul.

Then, my yesterday’s post was about Buddy Holly and rock ‘n roll, so today I found a song called “Listen to Me”, by Buddy Holly. Interesting how all that kind of went together.

I couldn’t find out much about this song, because there is a tribute album with this title, where various artists were singing Buddy Holly songs. That’s what kept popping up when I searched for information about the actual song.

***

***

“Listen to Me”, by Buddy Holly, was released in 1958. It was written by Buddy Holly and Norman Petty, and is on the Coral label.

***

***

Listen to me and hold me tight
And you will see our love so right
Hold me darling, listen closely to me

Your eyes will see what love can do
Reveal to me your love so true
Listen to me, listen closely to me

I’ve told the stars you’re my only love
I want to love you tenderly
Those same bright stars in heaven above
Know now how sweet sweethearts can be

Listen to me, hear what I say
Our hearts can be nearer each day
Hold me darling, listen closely to me

Listen to me
Listen, listen, listen to me

I’ve told the stars you’re my only love
I want to love you tenderly
Those same bright stars in heaven above
Know now how sweet sweethearts can be

Listen to me, hear what I say
Our hearts can be nearer each day

Listen – Song Lyric Sunday – Soul IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/11/18

***

For today’s SLS, Helen has given us the prompt word, ‘soul’. Thanks, Helen!

If you like music, then by all means, join in this weekly challenge. We get to hear all kinds of great music, old & new, and discuss our thoughts. Click the above link to get started.

***

There’s several ways to go with this one, I think. You can have ‘soul’ in the title of a song, ‘soul’ in the lyrics of the song, or the song can be classified as ‘soul’ music. There were a lot of good songs to choose from. The one I chose has ‘soul’ in the lyrics, and the band’s name.

***

A little bit of a funny story about not this album, but another one of theirs, “Hints, Allegations, and Things Left Unsaid”. Wiki

I heard their song, “Shine” on the radio, and I didn’t know who sang it, so I called the station to ask. They were very helpful, telling me that it was Collective Soul, and I could have a copy of the cassette tape, if I wanted to come get it. Well, wow! I said sure, and off I went.

Now, we lived in a little town 30 miles from where the radio station was located, but why not take a little trip, to collect my free, Collective Soul tape. So, I did. I still have it, too. There’s some really good songs on there.

I read later, that this was their debut album, and it was released as it was, as a demo record.

Later on, I did get the album that my featured song is from today. I still like all their music.

I couldn’t really find much about why they wrote this song, or it’s meaning. Some commenters were saying it’s about love lost, or misunderstandings, and things like that, which it could be.

However, my take on it is a reflection of how the world is today, even though the song was written in 1996. Has anything changed much over the years. Not much. People everywhere have been having conflict and misunderstandings for eons, yet still profess they want to live in a peaceful world. (except maybe some war mongers who relish and covet power over others).

We should stop and actually listen…open your mind to other possibilities, and solutions, and opinions. It may not change your own perspectives, but it could open up conversations and resolutions, perhaps?

“Listen”, by Collective Soul, was released as a single from their album, “Disciplined Breakdown”, in 1996. It was written by Ed Roland, and is on the Atlantic label.

Gimme Little Sign – Song Lyric Sunday – Give/Giving IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/28/18

***

Our prompt word for SLS is ‘give/giving’. Thanks, Helen!

This is a really catchy song to sing along to, and I like that I found a cool video with the lyrics already on there. I always liked this song. I’m sure we all know that ‘gimme’ as in the title is a way of saying ‘give me’, so that works with the prompts today.

***

“Gimme Little Sign,” by Brenton Wood, was released from his album, “Oogum Boogum”, in 1967. It was written by Alfred Smith (Brenton Wood’s real name), Joe Hooven, and Jerry Winn, and is on the Double Shot label.

For today’s SLS we have the prompt words ‘hide/hiding/hidden. Thanks, Helen!

This song is about a warning to others that a guy named Eli is coming, and if you get involved with him, you’ll get your heart broken. Therefore, you’d better hide your heart and feelings.

Three Dog Night – Eli’s Coming Lyrics

– as recorded by Three Dog Night
Eli’s comin’
Eli’s comin’ (Eli’s a-comin’)
Well you better hide your heart, your loving heart
Eli’s a-comin’ and the cards say… A broken heart
Eli’s comin’, hide your heart, girl
Eli’s comin’, hide your heart, girl
Girl, Eli’s a-comin’, you better hide
Girl, Eli’s a-comin’, you better hide
Girl, Eli’s a-comin’, you better hide
Girl, Eli’s comin’, hide your heart, girl (hide it)
You better, better hide your heart
Eli’s comin’, better walk
Walk but you’ll never get away
No, you’ll never get away from the burnin’ a-heartache
I walked to Apollo by the bay
Everywhere I go though, Eli’s a-comin’ (she walked but she never got
Away)
Eli’s a-comin’ (she walked but she never got away)
Eli’s a-comin’ and he’s comin’ to git ya (she walked but… She walked

Get down on your knees (she walked but she never got away)
Eli’s comin’ (hide it, hide it, hide it)
Girl, Eli’s a-comin’, you better hide

STP – Plush – Song Lyric Sunday – Find/Found

STP – Plush – Song Lyric Sunday – Find/Found IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/7/18

***

Today, for SLS, Helen has given us the prompt of find/found. Thanks, Helen!

I was drawing a blank on this one, especially after last weeks prompt of ‘search’. Come to find out, Helen is on a three week (possibly four) streak of prompts that connect in some way. It will be a surprise, unless we figure it out ahead of time, and we can guess what it is. I’ll have to give it some thought.

Anyway, I like this song. In reading about it, it seems it is loosely based on a true story of trying to find a missing or kidnapped person who was later found deceased. So sad.

Here’s an interesting fact to me…my daughter had a pet rabbit a long time ago, and she named it Weiland, after the singer in this band.

***

This video is an acoustic version, performed on Headbangers Ball (MTV), which I like a lot. The official video is good, but I was detracted from the lyrics and the meanings of the song by the craziness of that video.

“Plush”, by Stone Temple Pilots, was released as a single from their album, “Core”, in 1993. It was written by Scott Weiland and Eric Kratz, and is on the Atlantic label.

[Verse 1]
And I feel that time’s a wasted go
So where ya goin’ ’til tomorrow?
And I see that these are lies to come
So would you even care?[Pre-Chorus]
And I feel it
And I feel it[Chorus]
Where ya goin’ for tomorrow?
Where ya goin’ with the mask I found?
And I feel, and I feel when the dogs begin to smell her
Will she smell alone?
[Verse 2]
And I feel, so much depends on the weather
So is it rainin’ in your bedroom?
And I see, that these are the eyes of disarray
So would you even care?[Pre-Chorus]
And I feel it
And she feels it

Where ya goin’ for to tomorrow?
Where ya goin’ with the mask I found?
And I feel, and I feel when the dogs begin to smell her
Will she smell alone?

[Bridge]
When the dogs do find her
Got time, time, to wait for tomorrow
To find it, to find it, to find it
When the dogs do find her
Got time, time, to wait for tomorrow
To find it, to find it, to find it

[Chorus]
Where ya goin’ for tomorrow?
Where ya goin’ with the mask I found?
And I feel, and I feel when the dogs begin to smell her
Will she smell alone?

[Outro]
When the dogs do find her
Got time, time, to wait for tomorrow
To find it, to find it, to find it
When the dogs do find her
Got time, time, to wait for tomorrow
To find it, to find it, to find it
To find it
To find it
To find it

Country x 2 – Song Lyric Sunday – Glass IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 9/16/18

***

For today’s SLS, Helen has asked us to consider ‘glass’. Thanks, Helen!

***

Here’s a couple of oldie country songs I remember well. My husband used to listen to these all the time, as he’s a big fan of country music, especially the old time country. I like a lot of country music, but it’s not my favorite genre. These two do seem to stay around in my memory of hearing them, though, and I do like them.

“Rose Colored Glasses”, by John Conlee, was released as a single from the album of the same name in 1978. It was written by John Conlee and George Baber, and is on the ABC label.

“There Stands the Glass”, by Webb Pierce, was released in 1953. It was written by Russ Hull, Mary Jean Shurtz, and Autry Greisham, and is on the Decca label.

There stands the glass that will ease all my pain
That will settle my brain it’s my first one today
There stands the glass that will hide all my tears
That will drown all my fear, brother I’m on my way
I’m wondering where you are tonight
I’m wondering if you are all right
I wonder if you think of me in my misery
There stands the glass fill it up to the brim
Til my troubles grow dim, it’s my first one today
I’m wondering where you are tonight
I’m wondering if you are all right
I wonder if you think of me in my misery
There stands the glass fill it up to the brim
Til my troubles grow dim, it’s my first one today
