This is the Wiki article:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Day_in_the_Life

***

A few fun facts I found in this article: https://www.songfacts.com/facts/the-beatles/a-day-in-the-life

~ This was recorded in three sessions: first the basic track, then the orchestra, then the last note was dubbed in.

~ The final chord was produced by all four Beatles and George Martin banging on three pianos simultaneously. As the sound diminished, the engineer boosted to faders. The resulting note lasts 42 seconds; the studio air conditioners can be heard toward the end as the faders were pushed to the limit to record it.

~ This is a rare Beatles song with a title that is not part of the lyrics.

~ This was rated the greatest ever Beatles song in a special collector’s edition issue by The Beatles: 100 Greatest Songs. The list was compiled to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Fab Four’s final studio album, Let It Be.

***

“A Day In The Life”, by the Beatles, can be found on their 1967 album, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”. It was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and is on the Parlophone (UK) and Capitol (US) labels.

I read the news today, oh boy
About a lucky man who made the grade
And though the news was rather sad
Well, I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph
He blew his mind out in a car
He didn’t notice that the lights had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They’d seen his face before
Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords
I saw a film today, oh boy
The English Army had just won the war
A crowd of people turned away
But I just had to look
Having read the book
I’d love to turn you on
Woke up, fell out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up, I noticed I was late
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream
I read the news today, oh boy
Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
And though the holes were rather small
They had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall
I’d love to turn you on

This is a really nice song that I actually hadn’t heard until fairly recently. Seems it has been around for a long time though.

From a Wiki article:

I Swear” is a song written by Gary Baker and Frank J. Myers that became a hit for American country music artist John Michael Montgomery in 1993 and for American R&B group All-4-One in 1994.

All-4-One’s version hit number one on numerous music charts, including the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, where it remained at number one for 11 consecutive weeks. It peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart, where it stayed for seven consecutive weeks.

I swear by the moon and the stars in the skies … ~ All 4 One

“I Swear”, by All 4 One, is a single from their album, “All 4 One “. It was released in 1994. It was written by Gary Baker and Frank J. Myers, and is on the Blitzz – Atlantic label.

I think this is a nice sexy song. It is a woman saying how she wants a lover to take it slow and not rush their lovemaking.

From a Wiki article:

I read that at first this song was not even considered for the Pointer Sisters to record. But the producer disagreed, and it did become a big hit for them.

“Slow Hand” reached that position in August 1981 when it also reached number seven on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. In September 1981, the single was certified Gold by the RIAA.[3] “Slow Hand” was ranked in the top 25 best singles of the year by The Village Voice Pazz & Jop poll.[citation needed]

“Slow Hand” also afforded the Pointer Sisters international success, including the first appearance by the group in the top-ten on the UK Singles Chart.

***

“Slow Hand”, by the Pointer Sisters, was released as a single from their 1981 album, “Black and White”. It was written by Michael Clark and John Bettis, and is on the Planet label.

***

As the midnight moon, was drifting through
The lazy sway of the trees
I saw the look in your eyes, lookin’ into mine
Seeing what you wanted to see
Darlin’ don’t say a word, cause I already heard
What your body’s sayin’ to mine
I’m tired of fast moves
I’ve got a slow groove
On my mind
I want a man with a slow hand
I want a lover with an easy touch
I want somebody who will spend some time
Not come and go in a heated rush
I want somebody who will understand
When it comes to love, I want a slow hand
On shadowed ground, with no one around
And a blanket of stars in our eyes
We are drifting free, like two lost leaves
On the crazy wind of the night
Darlin’, don’t say a word, ’cause I already heard
What your body’s sayin’ to mine
If I want it all night
You say it’s alright
We got the time
‘Cause I got a man with a slow hand
I got a lover with an easy touch
I got somebody who will spend some time
Not come and go in a heated rush
I found somebody who will understand
When it comes to love, I want a slow hand
If I want it all night
Please say it’s alright
It’s not a fast move
But a slow groove
On my mind
‘Cause I got a man with a slow hand
I got a lover with an easy touch
I found somebody who will spend some time
Not come and go in a heated rush
I found somebody who will understand
I found a lover with a slow hand
Oh, lover with the slow hand
And I get all excited with his easy touch
I found somebody who will spend the night
Not come and go in a heated rush

There are lots of songs with the word ‘sweet’ in the title or lyrics. I like a lot of them, but went with this one today. I’ve always liked Guns N’ Roses songs.

***

From a Wiki article:

During a jam session the guys in the band each came up with parts of the music, then …

Lead singer Axl Rose was listening to the musicians upstairs in his room and was inspired to write lyrics, which he completed by the following afternoon.[9] He based it on his girlfriend Erin Everly, and declared that Lynyrd Skynyrd served as an inspiration “to make sure that we’d got that heartfelt feeling”.[8] On the next composing session in Burbank, the band added a bridge and a guitar solo.[9]

***

“Sweet Child O’Mine”, by Guns N’ Roses, was released on their album, “Appetite For Destruction”, in 1988. It is credited as being written by GNR, but I believe Axl Rose wrote the lyrics. It is on the Geffen label.

***

Lyrics are on the video

Well that was weird. The video I watched and copied had the lyrics on it, but now they are not. I added them below.

***

She’s got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything was as fresh as the bright blue sky
Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I stare too long, I’d probably break down and cry
Whoa, oh, oh
Sweet child o’ mine
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Sweet love of mine
She’s got eyes of the bluest skies
As if they thought of rain
I’d hate to look into those eyes and see an ounce of pain
Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
Where as a child I’d hide
And pray for the thunder and the rain to quietly pass me by
Whoa, oh, oh
Sweet child o’ mine
Whoa whoa, oh, oh, oh
Sweet love of mine
Whoa, yeah
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Sweet child o’ mine
Whoa, oh, whoa, oh
Sweet love of mine
Whoa, oh, oh, oh

Ooh, yeah
Ooh, sweet love of mine
Where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Ooh, oh, where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Oh, where do we go now?
Where do we go? (Sweet child)
Where do we go now?
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay

Being from Lubbock, TX, the hometown of the late, great Buddy Holly, I chose this song from him. I do love all his songs. We have lots of reminders of his life and legacy here, including a museum center, street named after him and his band, murals, and a statue at the walk of fame here, and also his grave site.

From a Wiki article:

True Love Ways” is a song attributed to Norman Petty and Buddy Holly. Buddy Holly’s original was recorded with the Dick Jacobs Orchestra in October 1958, four months before the singer’s death.

Holly’s widow, Maria Elena Holly, claimed that the song was written for her as a wedding gift. On April 29, 2011, Mrs. Holly unveiled the never-before-seen “True Love Ways” photo of their wedding kiss, now displayed at P.J. Clarke’s above Table 53, the table where they became engaged while on their first date, on June 20, 1958.[9]

***

“True Love Ways”, by Buddy Holly, was released as a single from the album, “The Buddy Holly Story, Vol. 2”, in 1960. It was written by Buddy Holly and Norman Petty, and is on the Coral label.

Just you know why

Sometimes we’ll sigh

There is a whole lot of interesting information on this song in the Wiki article about it. It’s pretty fun to see how this song and video came about, recounting her own move from Nashville to Hollywood, and paying tribute to her mom & dad’s courting days by lots of things portrayed in the video.

Here’s the link if you want to read more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Party_in_the_U.S.A.

From a Wiki article:

“Party in the U.S.A.” debuted and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 on the week ending August 29, 2009, due to the sale of over 226,000 digital downloads,[31] thus becoming the fastest-selling single released by Hollywood Records

“Party In The U.S.A.”, by Miley Cyrus, can be found on her 2009 album, “The Time Of Our Lives”. It was written by Lukasz Gottwald, Jessica Cornish, and Claude Kelly.

I hopped off the plane at L.AX
With a dream and my cardigan
Welcome to the land of fame excess (woah)
Am I gonna fit in?
Jumped in the cab, here I am for the first time
Look to my right, and I see the Hollywood sign
This is all so crazy
Everybody seems so famous
My tummy’s turnin’ and I’m feelin’ kinda home sick
Too much pressure and I’m nervous
That’s when the taxi man turned on the radio
And a Jay-Z song was on
And a Jay-Z song was on
And a Jay-Z song was on
So I put my hands up
They’re playing my song, the butterflies fly away
I’m noddin’ my head like, yeah
Movin’ my hips like, yeah
I got my hands up, they’re playing my song
They know I’m gonna be okay
Yeah, it’s a party in the U.S.A.
Yeah, it’s a party in the U.S.A.
Get to the club in my taxi cab
Everybody’s looking at me now
Like, “Who’s that chick, that’s rockin’ kicks?
She gotta be from out of town”
So hard with my girls not around me
It’s definitely not a Nashville party
‘Cause all I see are stilettos
I guess I never got the memo
My tummy’s turnin’ and I’m feelin’ kinda home sick
Too much pressure and I’m nervous
That’s when the DJ dropped my favorite tune
And a Britney song was on
And a Britney song was on
And a Britney song was on
So I put my hands up
They’re playing my song, the butterflies fly away
I’m noddin’ my head like, yeah

They know I’m gonna be okay
Yeah, it’s a party in the U.S.A.

Feel like hopping on a flight (on a flight)
Back to my hometown tonight (town tonight)
Something stops me every time (every time)

Just browsing around for a song to fit today’s prompt words I found this one by Caylee Hammack. I’d never heard of this artist or her song, but I like it a lot. In an interview she said it is mostly autobiographical about what happened to her. She gave up a college musical scholarship to be with her boyfriend. They had big dreams, but after seven years, it just wasn’t happening. After their break-up she headed to Nashville to follow her original dreams and plans.

***

From a Wiki article:

Hammack wrote “Small Town Hypocrite” while still being a staff writer, together with Jared Scott, about the breakup with her boyfriend who cheated on her, which eventually brought her to Nashville. Later she found out that he lived in a double-wide trailer, which made its way into the song’s final verse.[17] The song was officially released on February 21, 2020.[18]

Hand me down dreams got me high in the rafters
Homecoming queen couldn’t be an outsider
So there I’d sit, with a cigarette lit in a leather jacket
I found a boy who was a stranger too
In a one-horse town at a stable for two
We had matching scars and matching tattoos
Both dying to fit in
Ain’t that some shit
We’re just small-town hypocrites
And that scholarship was a ship that sailed
When I chose you and daddy gave me hell
I made myself into someone else just to love you, damn I loved you
Took all my plans and I put ’em in a box
Phantom pains for the wings I lost
Had me circling rings in the catalogs
For seven years and you never got the hint
Ain’t that some shit
I’m just a small-town hypocrite
Swore we’d be running, running, running this town
But you’re just running, running, running around
And I’m staring at a picket fence
Wondering where the hell time went
I should’ve been running, running, running by now
But I just hang around
Love shot me out like a rocket
Never to return and man, I forgot it
How it feels to fall from orbit and land on shifting sands
I found my heart at the bottom of a bucket
You said you needed space and damnit I bought it
‘Till you moved in a vinyl sided double wide with a couple of her kids
Ain’t that some shit
You’re just a small-town hypocrite (Oooh, oooh, ooooh)
Swore we’d be running, running, running this town
But you’re still running, running, running around
And I’m staring at a picket fence
Wondering where the hell time went
I should’ve been running, running, running by now
But I just hang around
Now I bitch about how things turned and how they should’ve been
The bridges that I burned and the trains I didn’t catch
Like a small-town hypocrite
Just a small-town hypocrite

Interesting topic, and there are quite a few songs that are about sports, or maybe even played at sports games. However, I don’t really like sports much. I’ve watched some, of course, but never really played any. We like watching the Kansas City Chiefs play football a lot, though.

The thing is, my husband loves golf. He was a golf pro at a country club for quite a few years, was in local tournaments, and won a lot of games. He played a lot of golf, and still swings a club. Golf is on our TV at least part of every single day here. I swear I know more about golf than I ever wanted to know, just by hearing about it constantly. Yeah, I tried it one time, even took a few lessons. Nope, not for me I found out. I did like driving the golf cart!

Anyway …

I did find some really funny parodies about Golf! Here’s a couple. Couldn’t find much about them, but this first one “The Golf Song”, I read was made by some friends in Australia. The lyrics are on the video.

***

***

Here’s another fun video, actually made by pro golfers. It’s the second one they’d done, and mentions a lot of golfers in the song.

From a Wiki article it says:

Fowler is one of four golfers in the “Golf Boys” group along with fellow PGA Tour players Ben Crane, Bubba Watson and Hunter Mahan. The Golf Boys released a YouTube video of the song “Oh Oh Oh” on the eve of the 2011 U.S. Open. Farmers Insurance donating $1,000 for every 100,000 views of the video. The charitable proceeds went to support both Farmers and Ben Crane charitable initiatives.[43]

“Golf Boys – 2.Oh”

Two thousand and trizzy teen
(trizzy teen)Ben Cranes, we running this short gameHit em with it now! Cumon!
25 inches on my golf cart rims
Going Bubba long better watch out kids
Hit it so hard coming out my shoes
Ain’t afraid to cry boo-hoo hoody hoo!

Oh how the birdies, love me love me love me

Almonds in my rack cause they yummy to my tummy
Pictures in my backswing baby that ain’t funny
Got my SPF on cause it’s sunny,sunny,sunny

We’re going flat bills
We’re going flat bills

We got some hot wings at Stuart Appleby’s
Oh I wanna wing so Aaron Baddeley
My ball hit the trees and it bounced on the green
Man he got off so Adam Scott free

Caught a tiger by it’s tail
For the Bo Van Pelt
Made a shirt for my fur cause I liked the way it felt

Rain delay, now they sound the alarm
You couldn’t hit the side of a Ricky Barnes

I like olives in my Rory Sabbatini
One time I got asked to play in a bikini

Said it was for a really good cause
I thought about it then I said Kevin
Na!

Thanks for the prompt, Jim! I’ve been all day trying to find something to fit, and it was kind of hard for me for some reason. Well, I had one already done, but then saw that other people had used it, so had to start over. I wish I could have found out more about this one, but after 9 hours of looking for information, and previewing other songs, I’m done for the day on this.

Hope you like it, as it’s pretty creepy! It may be clips from the movie, or just staged images, and pretty much shows all kinds of typical horror movie scenes. Well, it’s creepy and kind of funny at the same time.

This is a song I found of a YouTube video. I couldn’t really find out much about it, but I like it a lot.

It says it’s a parody of I think a movie called “The Grudge”, or a TV series?

Anyway, it has some of the words from the prompt – fear, nightmare, and terror. The lyrics are on the video.

This is one of the first songs I thought of for the prompt words. Can’t go wrong with Frank Sinatra! I like his voice, though the songs he usually sing are kind of old fashioned it seems to me, but still … it’s Sinatra! I like the video as it is very simple just featuring himself with a little acting of blowing on the dice as the song goes along.

From a Wiki article:

Luck Be a Lady” is a song written and composed by Frank Loesser in 1950 and first performed by Robert Alda. The song was featured in the musical Guys and Dolls. The lyrics relate the point of view of a gambler, Sky Masterson, who hopes that he will win a bet, the outcome of which will decide whether or not he is able to save his relationship with the girl of his dreams.

Later, it became a signature song for Frank Sinatra (who also starred in Guys and Dolls 1955 film adaptation), first released on the compilation Reprise Musical Repertory Theatre (1963) and re-released on the album Sinatra ’65: The Singer Today (1965).

“Luck Be a Lady”, by Frank Sinatra

they call you lady luck
but there is room for doubt
at times you have a very unladylike way
of running outyou’re on this date with me
the pickin’s have been lush
and yet before this evening is over
you might give me the brushyou might forget your manners
you might refuse to stay

is pray

luck be a lady tonight
luck be a lady tonight
luck if you’ve ever been a lady to begin with
luck be a lady tonight

luck let a gentleman see
how nice a dame you can be
I know the way you’ve treated other guys you’ve been with luck be a lady with me

a lady doesn’t leave her escort
it isn’t fair
it isn’t nice

a lady doesn’t wonder all over the room
and blow on some other guys dice

never get out of my sight
stick with me baby im the fellow
you came in with
luck be a lady tonight

luck let a gentleman see
just how nice
how nice a dame you can be I know the way you’ve treated
other guys you’ve been with
yeah luck be a lady with me

a lady doesn’t leave her escort
it isn’t fair
and its not nice

a lady doesn’t wonder all over the room
and blow on some other guys dice

so lets keep the party polite
never get out of my sight
stick with me baby im the guy that
you came in with
luck be a lady
luck be a lady
luck be a lady tonight
