Sheila – Song Lyric Sunday – By Tom/Dick/Harry

It was kind of hard to find a song by a certain named artist. Most times I just know the band’s name and not the individual singer’s name. Of course after I get to looking, I say oh, yeah that’s the singer. haha 🙂

Anyway, I found this one, “Sheila”, by Tommy Roe. It’s an old one, but I always liked it. While playing it I found I still remembered all the words, so I was singing along to it.

Now some information:

From the Wiki article:

Influenced by the sounds of the late Buddy Holly, Roe developed a unique style that, combined with his all-American clean-cut image, made him a popular musical performer throughout the 1960s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tommy_Roe

Sheila” is a song written and recorded by Tommy Roe. The single reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 on September 1, 1962, remaining in the top position for two weeks and peaking at number six on the US Billboard R&B chart.[1]

This here is interesting … since we live here in the hometown of Buddy Holly.

The ABC recording of the song is done in the style of the Lubbock sound, made popular by Buddy Holly and the Crickets in the late 1950s; the strumming pattern, tempo, and chords (both songs are in the key of A) bear particularly strong resemblance to the Crickets’ “Peggy Sue“; Roe’s vocals are similar to Holly’s. The song became the title track of Tommy Roe’s debut studio album, Sheila in 1962.

Fun Facts:

  • At first he wanted the title to be ‘Frita’ for a girl in his high school
  • It was suggested he change the title, so he changed it to ‘Sheila’ after his Aunt who was visiting at the time.
  • In the first recording, in 1960, they misspelled the title as ‘Shelia’.

***

“Sheila”, by Tommy Roe, was released as a single from his album of the same name in1962. It was written by Tommy Roe, and is on the ABC/Paramount label.

Sweet little Sheila, you’ll know her if you see her
Blue eyes and a ponytail
Her cheeks are rosy, she looks a little nosey
Man, this little girl is fine

Never knew a girl like-a little Sheila
Her name drives me insane
Sweet little girl, that’s my little Sheila
Man, this little girl is fine

Me and Sheila go for a ride
Oh-oh-oh-oh, I feel all funny inside
Then little Sheila whispers in my ear
Oh-oh-oh-oh, I love you Sheila dear

Sheila said she loved me, she said she’d never leave me
True love will never die
We’re so doggone happy just bein’ around together
Man, this little girl is fine

Never knew a girl like-a little Sheila
Her name drives me insane
Sweet little girl, that’s my little Sheila
Man, this little girl is fine

Me and Sheila go for a ride
Oh-oh-oh-oh, I feel all funny inside
Then little Sheila whispers in my ear
Oh-oh-oh-oh, I love you Sheila dear

True love will never die
We’re so doggone happy just bein’ around together
Man, this little girl is fine

Oh, this little girl is fine
Yeah, this little girl is fine
Oh, this little girl is fine

Such a feeling coming over me
There is wonder in the things I see
Not a cloud in the sky, got the sun in my eyes
And I won’t be surprised if it’s a dream

Everything I want the world to be
Is coming true especially for me
And the reason is clear, it’s because you are here
You’re the nearest thing to heaven that I’ve seen

On the top of the world looking down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I’ve found ever since you’ve been around
Your love put me on the top of the world
Top of the world
Top of the world
Top of the world

Something in the wind has learned my name
Telling me that things are not the same
In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze
There’s a pleasant sense of happiness for me

There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope I’ll find
Tomorrow will be the same for you and me
All I need will be mine if you are here

And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I’ve found ever since you’ve been around
Your love put me on the top of the world
Top of the world
Top of the world
Top of the world
Top of the world
Top of the world
Top of the world

Top of the world
Such a feeling coming over me now
Everything I want the world to be now
On top on top on top of the world
I’m on the top now I’m on the top
Now
Top of the world

Let’s Live For Today – Song Lyric Sunday – la

Let’s Live For Today – Song Lyric Sunday – la

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2020/01/04/la-a-note-to-follow-so/

***

Today’s SLS prompt word from Jim, at A Unique Title For Me, is ‘la’. Thanks, Jim!

To join in this fun, weekly musical challenge, and see other entries, just click the above link. It’s fun!

***

This prompt of the letters ‘la’ was at first confusing to me. Was it songs about LA, the city in California? No, it wasn’t. It’s about the singing of la la la la in a song. Lots and lots of songs have the la word in them, most times by the background singers.

Anyway, a song finally came to me –

“Let’s Live For Today”, by the Grass Roots.

From the Wiki article:

Let’s Live for Today” is a song written by David “Shel” Shapiro and Italian lyricist Mogol, with additional English lyrics provided by Michael Julien.[1][2] It was first recorded, with Italian lyrics, under the title of “Piangi Con Me” (translated as “Cry with Me”) by the English band the Rokes in 1966.[

The song quickly became popular with the record buying public, selling over two million copies in the U.S.[1] and finally peaking at number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 during June 1967.[4] As well as being popular with domestic American audiences, “Let’s Live for Today” also found favor with young American men serving overseas in the Vietnam War, as music critic Bruce Eder of the Allmusic website has noted: “Where the single really struck a resonant chord was among men serving in Vietnam; the song’s serious emotional content seemed to overlay perfectly with the sense of uncertainty afflicting most of those in combat; parts of the lyric could have echoed sentiments in any number of letters home, words said on last dates, and thoughts directed to deeply missed wives and girlfriends.”[1] Eder also described “Let’s Live for Today” by the Grass Roots as “one of the most powerful songs and records to come out of the 1960s.”[1]

***

“Let’s Live For Today”, by the Grass Roots was released as a single from their album of the same name in 1967. It was written by Michael Julien, Mogol, and David Shapiro, and is on the Dunhill label.

When I think of all the worries
That people seem to find
And how they’re in a hurry
To complicate their minds
By chasing after money
And dreams that can’t come true
I’m glad that we are different
We’ve better things to do
May others plan their future
I’m busy loving you

One, two, three, four
Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today
(Hey, hey, hey)
Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today
And don’t worry ’bout tomorrow, hey
Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today
Live for today

We were never meant to worry
The way that people do
And I don’t need to hurry
As long as I’m with you
We’ll take it nice and easy
And use my simple plan
You’ll be my lovin’ woman
I’ll be your lovin’ man
We’ll take the most from living
Have pleasure while we can

Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today
(Hey, hey, hey)
Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today
And don’t worry ’bout tomorrow, hey
Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today
Live for today

Baby, I need to feel you inside of me
I got to feel you deep inside of me
Baby, please come close to me
I got to have you now, please
Please, please
Gimme some-a loving
Gimme some-a loving
To gimme some-a loving
To gimme some-a loving
Baby, gimme some-a loving
Gimme some-a loving
Got to have all your loving
Gimme some-a loving
I need all your loving
Give me some love now
I need all your loving

This is the last SLS of 2019, and our host, Jim Adams, of A Unique Title For Me, has given us the prompt word ‘crazy’. Thanks so  much Jim for taking on the hosting duties of this most fun musical challenge.

To join in, and also see and hear lots more music, just click the above link.

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year 2020!

***

From the Wiki article:

Crazy Arms” is an American country song which was a career-making hit for Ray Price. The song, released in May 1956, went on to become a number 1 country hit that year, establishing Price’s sound, and redefining honky-tonk music. It was Price’s first No. 1 hit.

***

“Crazy Arms”, by Ray Price was released as a single in 1956. It was written by Ralph Mooney and Charles Seals, and is on the Columbia label.

However … there was a controversy mentioned in the Wiki article that said another songwriter, Paul Gilley, actually wrote the song, but sold the lyrics to Ralph Mooney, who then took credit for them.

Some notables that have covered this song are:

Willie Nelson, Patsy Cline, Jerry Garcia Band, Jerry Lee Lewis, Marie Osmond, and Chris Isaak among many others.

***

Now blue ain't the word for the way that I feel
And the storm's brewing in this heart of mine
This ain't no crazy dream I know that it's real
You're someone else's love now you're not mine

Crazy arms that reach to hold somebody new
While my yearning heart keeps saying you're not mine
My troubled mind knows soon to another you'll be wed
And that's why I'm lonely all the time

So please take the treasured dreams I have for you and me
And take all the love I thought was mine
Someday my crazy arms may hold somebody new
But now I'm so lonely all the time

Crazy arms that reach to hold somebody new
While my yearning heart keeps saying you're not mine
My troubled mind knows soon to another you'll be wed
And that's why I'm lonely all the time

LYRICS
Walking home, late one night, a star above me shone so bright
High above the Christmas Trees. Is that a Wise Man that I see ?
Or is it Santa on his sleigh, or a Star Man here today?
What’s the message that he brings? Whats the song that he sings?

I wish you a Kosmic Christmas – filled with Joy, Hope & Love
I wish you a Kosmic Christmas – spreading Love all around

Bells & holly, mistletoe; Christmas tinsel, falling snow
All the people gathered here – singing songs of Christmas cheer
And then a message on TV, interrupts the Queen’s speech
A wise man’s come to say – “Spread Love around the world today”

I wish you a Kosmic Christmas – filled with Joy, Hope & Love
I wish you a Kosmic Christmas – spreading Love all around,

I wish you a Kosmic Christmas – filled with Joy, Hope & Love
I wish you a Kosmic Christmas – spreading Love all around,
spreading Love all around the World

I wish you a Kosmic Christmas – filled with Joy, Hope & Love
I wish you a Kosmic Christmas – spreading Love all around,
spreading Love all around the World, the Solar System, the Stars, and the Universe

WISHING YOU A KOSMIC CHRISTMAS
…… spreading Love all around ….. the World,

the Community, your mother, your father,
your children, your sister, step-sister, half-sister,
sister-in-law, sister-twice-removed,
brothers of all kinds, your other family members,
your friends, colleagues…… and not forgetting
the postman, the traffic warden, the taxman,
the politicians, the pop-stars ….. the penguins, the polar bears,
and the snowman at the end of the road,
whose heart is waiting to be thawed…..

May yours stay warm until our next Kosmic Christmas !

This song is a fun one I think. It has a bit of a twist from a person just getting down on their knees to proclaim their love, in that even their heart is down on it’s knees – must be a powerful kind of love?

I have no special story about it, but we do have a package deal of several Jimmy Buffett CDs and this song is one of them. I’ve heard it a lot of times, and like most of his songs, it’s a good one.

I always read the articles about a song, and sometimes copy a bit from them, but I don’t really like to do this very much. However, this song I couldn’t find much about it exactly – just about the album and style of music. So here’s what I found out:

From the Wiki Article:

Riddles in the Sand is the thirteenth studio album by American popular music singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett. It was released in September 1984 as MCA 5512 and was produced by noted country music producer Jimmy Bowen and represented a concerted shift toward a more country sound by Buffett. He appeared on the album’s cover in typical country singer garb and promoted the album at Fan Fair country music festival inNashville TN. The album was originally to have been titled Gulf and Western Music[2][3] reflecting the fusion of musical styles seen in much of Buffett’s music often called gulf and western music. In the album’s liner notes, Jim Harrison says, “This album has a musical range expanding in an arc from Bob Wills to Bob Marley with the Gulf somehow always there.”[4]

Riddles in the Sand reached #95 on the Billboard 200 album chart and #18 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.

***

“Knees of My Heart”, by Jimmy Buffett, can be found on his “riddles in the Sand” album, released in 1984. It is on the Geffen label.

***

I’ve got a question for you
Please grant me an interview
Don’t want to read it in a magazine
Don’t want to see it on the silver screen
Don’t let the craziness tear us apart

I’m down on the knees of my heart
Down here on the knees of my heart

This comes from deep in my soul
Your sweet love has taken control
I’ll swim across the ocean if you tell me so
Take you to the jump up if you want to go
It’s never-y too late to make a brand new start

I’m down on the knees of my heart
Down here on the knees of my heart

Whoa how I will sing
If you give me everything
I live for the day
When there’s nothing in our way

I will be waiting tonight
You’ll find my boat by the light
I’m gonna show you what my love can do
Out on the ocean all alone with you
We’ll find a desert island on an ancient chart

Take me from the knees of my heart
Take me from the knees of my heart
Take me from the knees of my heart

Take me from the knees of my heart
Whoa take me from the knees of my heart
Please take me from the knees of my heart
Whoa oh oh take me from the knees of my heart
Uh buh puh buh puh buh puh
Please from the knees of my heart
Whoa oh oh

Lips are Movin – Song Lyric Sunday – All About That Face

Today, for SLS, we were given the prompt words – chin/ears/eyes/face/mouth/nose. Lots of facial features to choose from this week. I went with ‘lips’. Thanks, Jim!

To join in this weekly musical challenge, and see/hear other great song entries, just click the above link. It’s fun! 🙂

***

When I saw all the prompt words, I was kind of overwhelmed – there are so many songs to choose from. Most I saw were about eyes and lips, not so many about noses, ears, or chins.

I couldn’t stop thinking about Rudolph, though, with his red nose! But, later on we’ll have Christmas prompts, so didn’t want to use this one.

So, I went searching and found this one. I hadn’t heard it before, but I do like a lot of her songs. It’s a really cute one, with shades of her big hit “All About That Bass”. The article said this one proved she wasn’t just a one hit wonder. She sings about a boyfriend that is probably cheating on her, but still sweet talks her, and she knows if he’s talking, he’s probably lying.

***

Some interesting facts about the video (from the Wiki article) which describes it very well –

In the song’s music video, Trainor sings into a red microphone in front of a pastel blue backdrop in a black leather jacket. She is sometimes with backup dancers, surrounded by the television screens.[49] Lips are used as a motif throughout the video; they appear as close-ups of Trainor’s mouth and as a large drawing of lips used as a backdrop. Yahoo! Music writer Lyndsey Parker compared the video to a huge pair of lips featured in The Rocky Horror Picture Show.[48] Trainor wears lip-shaped earrings and sunglasses in the video, and is seen lying on a lip-shaped sofa. Parker compared the sofa in the video to the sofas used in the American television program So You Think You Can Dance.[48] The video’s set changes constantly; props are elevated on-and-off screen by workers throughout the clip.[46]

“Lips are Movin”, by Meghan Trainor, was released from her album, “Title”, in 2014. It was written by Meghan Trainor and Kevin Kadish, and is on the Epic label.

If your lips are movin, If your lips are movin
If your lips are movin, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby
If your lips are movin, If your lips are movin
If your lips are movin, I said you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby

[Verse 1]
Boy, look at me in my face
Tell me that you’re not just about this bass

You really think I could be replaced
Nah, I come from outer space

And I’m a classy girl, I’mma hold it up
You’re full of something but it ain’t love

And what we got, straight overdue
Go find somebody new

[Pre-Chorus]
You can buy me diamond earrings and deny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, deny-ny
But I smell her on your collar so goodbye-bye-bye, bye-bye-bye

[Chorus]
I know you’re lyin’
Cause your lips are movin’

Tell me, do you think I’m dumb?
I might be young, but I ain’t stupid
Talking around in circles with your tongue

I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk
Saying how I’m your number one

But I know you lie
Cause your lips are movin
Baby don’t you know I’m done?

[Interlude]
If your lips are movin, If your lips are movin
If your lips are movin, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby
If your lips are movin, If your lips are movin
If your lips are movin, I said you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby

[Verse 2]
Hey baby don’t you bring them tears
Cause it’s too late, too late baby

You only love me when you’re here
You’re so two-faced, two-faced babe

[Pre-Chorus]
You can buy me diamond earrings and deny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, deny-ny
But I smell her on your collar so goodbye-bye-bye, bye-bye-bye

Tell me, do you think I’m dumb?
I might be young, but I ain’t stupid

I found this song, which I’ve heard a lot of times. I like it a lot, even though it sounds like most other old time country songs. This one though is telling a story that is set probably in Louisiana in the Bayou region.

It mentions all kinds of good Cajun food that they will enjoy with friends, while listening to some good music.

I, for one, love to eat this type of food. We have a Cajun themed restaurant here that we go to often.

We, in our family, have had the traditional turkey and dressing and side dishes many times over the years, and it’s good. But, lots of times we have non-traditional food for our holidays. I like that even better.

***

From the Wiki article:

“Jambalaya”, while maintaining a Cajun theme, is about life, parties and stereotypical food of Cajun cuisine. The narrator leaves to pole a pirogue down the shallow water of the bayou, to attend a party with his girlfriend Yvonne and her family. At the feast they have Cajun cuisine, notably Jambalaya, crawfish pie and filé gumbo, and drink liquor from fruit jars. Yvonne is his “ma cher amio”, which is Cajun French for “my good friend” or more likely to mean “my girlfriend.” Technically in Cajun culture “ma cher amio” means my dear, which refers to Yvonne in this song. It reached number one on the U.S. country charts for fourteen non-consecutive weeks

***

“Jambalaya (On the Bayou)”, by Hank Williams, was released in 1952. It was written by Hank Williams and Moon Mullican, and is on the MGM label.

***

***

[Verse 1]
Goodbye Joe me gotta go me oh my oh
Me gotta go pole the pirogue down the bayou
My Yvonne the sweetest one me oh my oh

Son of me gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou
Jambalaya and a crawfish pie on a filé gumbo

‘Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio
Pick guitar, filled fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of me gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou

[Verse 2]
Thibodaux Fontaineaux the place is buzzin’
Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen
Dressed in style, go hog wild, oh me oh my oh
Son of me gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Settle down far from town get me a pirogue
And I’ll catch all the fish in the bayou

[Chorus]
Jambalaya and a crawfish pie on a filé gumbo
‘Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio
Pick guitar, filled fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of me gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie on a filé gumbo
‘Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio
Pick guitar, filled fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of me gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Son of me gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou

[Verse 3]
Later on, swap my mon, get me a pirogue
And I’ll catch all the fish on the bayou

Swap my mon, to buy Yvonne what she need-oh
Son of a gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie…

Today, for SLS, we have the words ‘did/didn’t/do/don’t/does/doesn’t’. Lots of songs with some version of these to choose from. Thanks, Jim!

To join in this fun weekly musical challenge, the details are found at the above link. See other entries, also. 🙂

***

From the Wiki article:

“‘I Want You To Want Me’ was a fabulous dancehall type of song, and a perfect pop tune, and it was meant to be a little campy.

The studio version features guitar by Jay Graydon.[8] The live version has a higher tempo than the album version, which contributed to its success. However, the album version features an echo at the verse “Didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you cryin’ (cryin)”. This echo does not appear in the live version. The crowd, however, emulates the echo by chanting “cryin'”.

***

In this video, where Cheap Trick is performing live on the Howard Stern show, there is a one minute interview about how the song came to be.

“I Want You to Want Me’, by Cheap Trick, appears on their 1977 album, “In Color”. It was written by Rick Nielson, and is on the Epic label.

I’ll shine up the old brown shoes, put on a brand-new shirt.
I’ll get home early from work if you say that you love me.

Didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you cryin’?
Oh, didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you cryin’?
Feelin’ all alone without a friend, you know you feel like dyin’.
Oh, didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you cryin’?

I want you to want me.
I need you to need me.
I’d love you to love me.
I’m beggin’ you to beg me.
I’ll shine up the old brown shoes, put on a brand-new shirt.
I’ll get home early from work if you say that you love me.

Didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you cryin’?
Oh, didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you cryin’?
Feelin’ all alone without a friend, you know you feel like dyin’.
Oh, didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you cryin’?
Feelin’ all alone without a friend, you know you feel like dyin’.
Oh, didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you cryin’?

I want you to want me.
I need you to need me.
I’d love you to love me.
I’m beggin’ you to beg me.
I want you to want me.
I want you to want me.
I want you to want me.
I want you to want me.

I read the whole Wiki article about how this song came about, and it’s pretty interesting. You can find it … here

But, here are a few tidbits:

  • …They began writing the song on {a} tour bus, and continued later that night at their hotel
  • …unusually for a love song, the lyrics are not about the narrator’s love for someone else; instead the narrator functions as a helpful go-between for estranged lovers
  • The “yeah, yeah, yeah” refrain proved an immediate, infectious musical hook.
  • In November 2004, Rolling Stone ranked “She Loves You” number 64 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

***

“She Loves You”, by the Beatles, was released as a single in 1963. It was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and is on the Capitol – Swan, and Parlophone labels.

[Chorus: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Verse 1: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
You think you’ve lost your love
Well, I saw her yesterday
It’s you she’s thinking of
And she told me what to say

[Refrain: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
She says she loves you
And you know that can’t be bad
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad

[Verse 2: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
She said you hurt her so
She almost lost her mind
But now she said she knows
You’re not the hurting kind

[Refrain: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
She says she loves you
And you know that can’t be bad
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad, ooh

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
With a love like that
You know you should be glad

[Verse 3: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
You know it’s up to you
I think it’s only fair
Pride can hurt you, too
Apologise to her

[Refrain: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
Because she loves you
And you know that can’t be bad
She loves you
And you know you should be glad, ooh

[Chorus: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
With a love like that
You know you should be glad

[Outro: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
With a love like that
You know you should be glad
With a love like that
You know you should be glad
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
