This is a fun song and video from Pink. I like most all her songs. In this video she is getting ready to go to a party or club for fun and dancing. She tries on lots of cool outfits. As she makes her way to the party, she grabs a skateboard for a little while, but falls off. Later she is on a high rise scaffolding platform as she manages to find the place. Then she dances with a lot of people. Looks like fun. 🙂

This is the link to the song’s Wiki information page.

“Get the Party Started”, by Pink, can be found on her 2001 album, “Missundaztood”. It was written by Linda Perry, and is on the LaFace label.

[Chorus]
I’m comin’ up, so you better get this party started
I’m comin’ up, so you better get this party started

[Verse 1]
Get the party started on a Saturday night
Everybody’s waiting for me to arrive
Sending out the message to all of my friends
We’ll be looking flashy in my Mercedes Benz
I got lots of style, check my gold diamond rings
I can go for miles if you know what I mean

[Chorus]
I’m comin’ up, so you better get this party started
(I’m comin’ up, I’m comin’)
I’m comin’ up, so you better get this party started

[Verse 2]
Pumping up the volume, breaking down to the beat
Cruising through the west side, we’ll be checking the scene
Boulevard is freaking as I’m coming up fast
I’ll be burning rubber, you’ll be kissing my ass
Pull up to the bumper, get out of the car
License plate says, “Stunner: #1 Superstar”

[Chorus]
I’m comin’ up, so you better get this party started
(I’m comin’ up, so you better)
I’m comin’ up, so you better get this party started

Get this party started

Making my connection as I enter the room
Everybody’s chillin’ as I set up the groove
Pumping up the volume with this brand new beat
Everybody’s dancing and they’re dancing for me
I’m your operator, you can call anytime
I’ll be your connection to the party line

[Chorus]
I’m comin’ up, so you better get this party started
(I’m comin’ up, I’m comin’)
I’m comin’ up, so you better get this party started
(I’m comin’ up, I’m comin’)
I’m comin’ up, so you better get this party started
(I’m comin’ up, so you better)
I’m comin’ up, so you better get this party started

Get this party started (Ooh)
Get this party started right now
Get this party started (Ooh)
Get this party started
Get this party started right now

I always liked most of the Doors songs, and this is what I found about this one:

From the Wiki article:

According to Bruce Botnick‘s liner notes the song was initially referred to by its various working titles; “I’m Gonna Love You”, from a line in the chorus, or “Hit Me”, a reference to blackjack. The opening line was originally “C’mon, hit me … I’m not afraid”, the line thus reflecting the first person vantage point of a blackjack player.[2] Morrison reportedly[citation needed] changed the lyric out of concern that rowdy crowds at their live shows would mistakenly believe that “hit me” was a challenge to physically assault him.

At the end of the song, Morrison can be heard saying, “Stronger than dirt”, which was the slogan of the Ajax household cleaning company, because the last four notes of “Touch Me” were the same as those in an Ajax commercial and as a mocking criticism of Krieger, John Densmore, and Ray Manzarek wanting to accept an offer from Buick to use “Light My Fire” in a commercial. The deal was aborted when Morrison opposed it. This vocal was omitted on the single version, which was a different mix.

***

“Touch Me”, by The Doors, can be found on their album, “The Soft Parade”, released in 1968. It was written by Robby Krieger, and is on the Elektra label.

[Intro]

[Verse]
Yeah! Come on, come on, come on, come on
Now touch me, babe

Can’t you see that I am not afraid?
What was that promise that you made?
Why won’t you tell me what she said?
What was that promise that you made?

[Hook]
Now, I’m going to love you
Till the heavens stop the rain

I’m going to love you
Till the stars fall from the sky for you and I

[Verse]
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Now touch me, babe

Can’t you see that I am not afraid?
What was that promise that you made?
Why won’t you tell me what she said?
What was that promise that you made?

[Hook]
Now, I’m going to love you
Till the heavens stop the rain

I’m going to love you
Till the stars fall from the sky for you and I

Till the heavens stop the rain
I’m going to love you
Till the stars fall from the sky for you and I

[Sax Solo]

[Outro]
Stronger than dirt

This topic had me stumped – I had nothing in mind of a song that had any of those words in the lyrics. So I just found some lists, and started listening to some new to me songs. This one was really pretty, and so I chose it. It is played as a wedding song, I’m pretty sure. Hope you like it, too. 🙂

Till The End of Time
In perfect time you came into my life
In your arms, I have survived as you hold me
Till the end of time
You are the calm of the stormy nights
Your gentle love, have raised me up as you hold me
Till the end of time
Till the end of time, I swear to you I care
Till the end of time, my vow endures like the ocean
Till the end of time, I love you more
In perfect time you came into my life
Like the morning sun, you gave me hope as I hold on
Till the end of time
Till the end of time
Till the end of time, I swear to you I care
Till the end of time, my vow endures like the ocean
Till the end of time, I love you more
Hmmm, till the end of time

I remember this song, and it was the first I thought of, even before looking around at lists. I could still remember most of the words. 🙂

***

Since its release, the song has become a landmark record of the soul genre, which Cooke helped create. It was named as one of the 500 most important rock and roll recordings by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. In 2005, the song was voted No. 115 by representatives of the music industry and press in Rolling Stone magazine’s The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

***

“You Send Me”, by Sam Cooke, was released as a single in 1957, from his album, “Songs by Sam Cooke”. It was written by Sam Cooke and mistakenly credited to his younger brother, L. C. Cook. (it was that Sam had wanted his brother to do the recording). It is on the Keen Label.

Darling, you send me

Honest you do, honest you do

You thrill me

This was a pretty easy one, for me, as there are lots of songs with the prompt words in the title or lyrics. I started to look up some, but then I remembered this song from the movie, “Smokey and the Bandit”. It’s a really funny movie, and there are a couple more sequels after, and we’ve seen them all.

***

“Eastbound and Down”, by Jerry Reed, was released from the album,”Smoky and the Bandit”, in 1977. It was written by Jerry Reed, and Dick Fellers for the movie, “Smokey and the Bandit”, in which Jerry Reed also was one of the  main actors in the movie.

It tells the story of hauling illegal beer across state lines, and breaking the speed limits, too, in such a funny movie. There were sequels to this first movie, also.

The song spent 16 weeks on the U. S.  Country Music charts, where it peaked at # 2.

It could be purchased on vinyl, cassette, and 8-track tape.

***

***

[Chorus]
East bound and down, loaded up and truckin’
We gonna do what they say can’t be done
We’ve got a long way to go and a short time to get there
I’m east bound, just watch ol’ Bandit run

[Verse 1]
Keep your foot hard on the pedal
Son never mind them brakes
Let it all hang out, cause we’ve got a run to make
The boys are thirsty in Atlanta
And there’s beer in Texarkana

And we’ll bring it back no matter what it takes

[Chorus]
East bound and down, loaded up and truckin’
We gonna do what they say can’t be done
We’ve got a long way to go and a short time to get there
I’m east bound, just watch ol’ Bandit run

[Instrumental]

[Chorus]
East bound and down, loaded up and truckin’
We gonna do what they say can’t be done
We’ve got a long way to go and a short time to get there
I’m east bound, just watch ol’ Bandit run

Old Smokey’s got them ears on
He’s hot on your trail
And he ain’t gonna rest ’til you’re in jail
So you gotta dodge him, you gotta duck him
You’ve gotta keep that diesel truckin’
Just put that hammer down and give it hell

[Chorus]
East bound and down, loaded up and truckin’
We gonna do what they say can’t be done
We’ve got a long way to go and a short time to get there
I’m east bound, just watch ol’ Bandit run

This is an old song, but I remember it well, and was the first one I thought of for this prompt. 🙂

From the Wiki article:

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

Recording the song at home, the group sang it a cappella with the rhythmic shaking of Troxel’s car keys. The tape was then sent to Los Angeles where the sparse instrumental accompaniment was added.

The song was featured in the film and soundtrack of Stand by Me.

***

“Come Softly To Me”, by the Fleetwoods (1959), can be found on their album, “Mr. Blue”. It was written by the three singers, Gretchen Christopher, Barbara Ellis, and Gary Troxel. It is on the Dolphin and Liberty Records labels.

Today’s SLS has for our prompt the words – come/go/leave/stay. Thanks, Jim!

***

The song was written by Williams in 1953 when he was 15 years old. He had been trying to convince his date not to go home at 10 o’clock as she was supposed to. He lost the argument, but as he was to relate years later, “Like a flood, the words just came to me.”

The original recording of “Stay” remains the shortest single ever to reach the top of the American record charts, at 1 minute 36 seconds in length. By 1990, it had sold more than 8 million copies. It received a new lease of popularity after being featured on the Dirty Dancing soundtrack.

“Stay”, by Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs, was released in 1960. It was written by Maurice Williams, and is on the Herald label.

(Stay) Ah, just a little bit longer (Stay)

Now your daddy don’t mind

Oh, won’t you stay
Just a little bit longer?
Please let me dance
And say you will (Say you will)

Won’t you place your sweet lips to mine?
Won’t you say you love me all of the time?

This song is the first one I thought of for the prompt. It is a really catchy tune, and funny lyrics, and I like it a lot. It does have a lot of the prompt word pronouns in there, too, and the video is fun to watch.

I’ve found that Toby Keith has lots of humorous songs, along with some more serious ones. I like most all of them that I’ve heard over the years.

***

From the Wiki article:

“I Wanna Talk About Me” is cited as an example of country-rap, due to the use of a strong beat and rhythmically spoken lyrics.[4][5] “I Wanna Talk About Me” tells of a male’s frustration in his inability to converse with his partner, who wants to talk about herself.

***

“I Wanna Talk About Me”, by Toby Keith, was released from his album, “Pull My Chain”, in 2001. It was written by Bobby Braddock, and is on the Dreamworks label.

[Intro]
Yeah yeah
That’s right

[Verse 1]
We talk about your work, how your boss is a jerk
We talk about your church and your head when it hurts
We talk about the troubles you’ve been having with your brother
About your daddy and your mother and your crazy ex-lover
We talk about your friends and the places that you’ve been
We talk about your skin and the dimples on your chin
The polish on your toes and the run in your hose
And God knows we’re gonna talk about your clothes
You know talking about you makes me smile
But every once in awhile

[Chorus]
I wanna talk about me
Wanna talk about I
Wanna talk about number one
Oh my, me my
What I think, what I like, what I know, what I want, what I see
I like talking about you, you, you, you, usually, but occasionally
I wanna talk about me (me, me, me, me)
I wanna talk about me (me, me, me, me)

We talk about your dreams and we talk about your schemes
Your high school team and your moisturizer cream
We talk about your nanna up in Muncie, Indiana
We talk about your grandma down in Alabama
We talk about your guys of every shape and size
The ones that you despise and the ones you idolize
We talk about your heart, about your brains and your smarts
And your medical charts and when you start
You know talking about you makes me grin
But every now and then

[Chorus]
I wanna talk about me
Wanna talk about I
Wanna talk about number one
Oh my me my
What I think, what I like, what I know, what I want, what I see
I like talking about you, you, you, you, usually, but occasionally

(Honeycomb)

Well it’s a darn good life
And it’s kinda funny
How the Lord made the bee
And the bee made the honey
And the honeybee lookin’ for a home
And they called it honeycomb
And they roamed the world and they gathered all
Of the honeycomb into one sweet ball
And the honeycomb from a million trips
Made my baby’s lips

Oh, Honeycomb, won’t you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank o’ hair and a piece o’ bone
And made a walkin’ talkin’ Honeycomb
Well, Honeycomb, won’t you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
What a darn good life
When you got a wife like Honeycomb

(Honeycomb)

And the Lord said now that I made a bee
I’m gonna look all around for a green, green tree
And He made a little tree and I guess you heard
What then, well, he made a little bird
And they waited all around till the end of Spring
Gettin’ every note that the birdie’d sing
And they put ’em all into one sweet tome
For my Honeycomb

Well, Honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank o’ hair and a piece o’ bone
And made a walkin’ talkin’ Honeycomb
Well, Honeycomb, won’t you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
What a darn good life
When you got a wife like Honeycomb

(Honeycomb)

And the Lord says now that I made a bird
I’m gonna look all round for a little ol’ word
That sounds about sweet like “turtledove”
And I guess I’m gonna call it “love”
And He roamed the world lookin’ everywhere
Gettin’ love from here, love from there
And He put it all in a little ol’ part
Of my baby’s heart

Oh, Honeycomb, won’t you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank o’ hair and a piece o’ bone
And made a walkin’ talkin’ Honeycomb
Well, Honeycomb, won’t you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own

We could be the talk of the town tonight
Carry home your shoes in the morning light
Or we could just stay here a while
Wrapped up in the quiet life
We could sail away to Tobago
Fly across the Gulf of Mexico
Or we could just stay here a while
Wrapped up in the quiet life
Now and then I’m loving the world again
And I’ll be fine living in the quiet life
We could get a job on the movie screen
Smile on the cover of a magazine
Or we could just be man and wife
Happy in the quiet life
Where the clock don’t move so quick
Where the water don’t make you sick
Traffic don’t keep you up at night
Here in the quiet life
Now and then I’m loving the world again
And I’ll be fine living in the quiet life
Living in the quiet life
Sleeping by a firelight
Maybe I could make you smile
In the quiet life
We could be the talk of the town tonight

[Chorus]
Smoke don’t rise, fuel don’t burn
Sun don’t shine no more
Late one night, sorrow come round
Scratching at my door
But I cut my hands and break my back
Draggin’ this bag of stones
Till they bury me down beneath the ground
With the dust and rattlin’ bones

[Verse 1]
Left my home and left my love
Caught on a rusty nail
Devil rose up heavy with gold
My soul’s not for sale
Then a holy man in a house of God
He offered me a book of prayer
But when I left my home and I left my love
Left my faith back there

[Chorus]
Smoke don’t rise, fuel don’t burn
Sun don’t shine no more
Late one night, sorrow come round
Scratchin’ at my door
But I cut my hands and break my back
Draggin’ this bag of stones
Till they bury me down beneath the ground
With the dust and rattlin’ bones

Shut my eyes and hang my head
Darkness makes no sound
Climb it up, bottom there
Earth’s on the way back down
When a sadness falls on the morning bird
Wonder what the day will bring
But I shut my eyes and hang my head
At least that bird can sing

[Chorus]
Smoke don’t rise, fuel don’t burn
Sun don’t shine no more
Late one night, sorrow come round
Scratchin’ at my door
But I cut my hands and break my back
Draggin’ this bag of stones
Till they bury me down beneath the ground
With the dust and rattlin’ bones
Till they bury me down beneath the ground
With the dust and rattlin’ bones
