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)

All aboard! Ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaa!

Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay

Crazy, but that’s how it goes
Millions of people living as foes
Maybe it’s not too late
To learn how to love
And forget how to hate

Mental wounds not healing
Life’s a bitter shame
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train

Let’s Go!

I’ve listened to preachers
I’ve listened to fools
I’ve watched all the dropouts
Who make their own rules
One person conditioned to rule and control
The media sells it and you live the role

Mental wounds still screaming
Driving me insane
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train

I know that things are going wrong for me
You gotta listen to my words
Yeah

Heirs of a cold war
That’s what we’ve become
Inheriting troubles I’m mentally numb
Crazy, I just cannot bear
I’m living with something’ that just isn’t fair

Mental wounds not healing
Who and what’s to blame
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train

For SLS Helen has asked for songs about sugar and candy. Thanks, Helen!

There are so many good ones to choose from, so I couldn’t resist, and chose two. The first one I heard lots of times on the radio back then. The second one I heard lots of times, and saw the video since MTV aired it a lot.

Anyway, they are both good, so hope you enjoy listening to them. 🙂

There’s a crazy little shack beyond the tracks
And everybody calls it the sugar shack
Well, its just a coffeehouse and its made out of wood
Espresso coffee tastes mighty good
That’s not the reason why I’ve got to get back
To that sugar shack, whoa baby
To that sugar shack.

There’s this cute little girlie, she’s a-working there
A black leotard and her feet are bare
I’m gonna drink a lot of coffee, spend a little cash
Make that girl love me when I put on some trash
You can understand why I’ve got to get back
To that sugar shack, whoa baby
To that sugar shack, yeah honey
To that sugar shack, whoa yes
To that sugar shack

Now that sugar shack queen is a-married to me, yeah yeah
We just sit around and dream of those old memories
Ah, but one of these days I’m gonna lay down tracks
In the direction of that sugar shack
Just me and her yes were gonna go back
To that sugar shack,
Whoa uh oh
O that sugar shack, yeah honey
To our sugar shack

Yea, yea, yea, our sugar shack

Song Lyric Sunday – Peace

Standard

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.

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.

‘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… 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”
