Time again for SLS! Today our prompt word for finding songs is, ‘break’. Thanks, Helen!

There are lot of great songs that have the word break in the title or lyrics, but I’ve always liked this one, and is the first one I thought of for the challenge.

“19th Nervous Breakdown”, by the Rolling Stones, was released as a single in 1966. It was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and is on the Decca (UK) and London (US) labels.

Rolling Stones – 19Th Nervous Breakdown Lyrics

Youre the kind of person
You meet at certain dismal dull affairs.
Center of a crowd, talking much too loud
Running up and down the stairs.
Well, it seems to me that you have seen too much in too few years.
And though youve tried you just can’t hide
Your eyes are edged with tears.You better stop
Look around
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown.When you were a child
You were treated kind
But you were never brought up right.
You were always spoiled with a thousand toys
But still you cried all night.
Your mother who neglected you
Owes a million dollars tax.
And your fathers still perfecting ways of making ceiling wax.You better stop, look around
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nilne-teenth nervous breakdown.Oh, whos to blame, that girls just insane.
Well nothing I do don’t seem to work,
It only seems to make matters worse. Oh please.

You were still in school
When you had that fool
Who really messed your mind.
And after that you turned your back
On treating people kind.
On our first trip
I tried so hard to rearrange your mind.
But after while I realized you were disarranging mine.

You better stop, look around
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown.
Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown
Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown

Songwriters: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger

Maggie May – Song Lyric Sunday – Think IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 7/8/18

***

It’s Song Lyric Sunday, and Helen has challenged us with the prompt word ”think’. Thanks so much, Helen, for providing a place for us to showcase some songs we like, whether old ones or new ones.

If you, too, would like to join in this weekly challenge, just click the above link for details. Listen to other entries, also. It’s fun! 🙂

***

***

This song is one I’ve liked ever since it came out. It reminds me of road trips, because we always heard it when we were traveling down a highway.

It may be a stretch for the ‘think’ prompt, but it does have the word in the lyrics. I read that it was inspired by a similar experience that Rod Stewart had in his past.

***

“Maggie May”, by Rod Stewart, was released in 1971, from his album, “Every Picture Tells a Story”. It was written by Rod Stewart, and Martin Quittenton, and is on the Mercury label.

The Name Game – Song Lyric Sunday – Games IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 7/1/18

Happy Sunday, and Happy July 1st! It’s time for another SLS, with a fun prompt from Helen! Today we are looking for songs about games, in whatever form that takes. Thanks, Helen! 🙂

***

Are you ready to get your toes tapping and your rhyming going? This one’s for you! Enjoy 🙂

This fun song is one I remember from years back. It is a catchy tune, easy to learn how to play the game, and fun to sing along.

***

“The Name Game”, by Shirley Ellis, is from her album of the same name, and was released in 1964. It was written by Shirley Ellis and Lincoln Chase, and is on the Congress label.

***

***

The name game!
Shirley!
Shirley, Shirley bo Birley Bonana fanna fo Firley

Fee fy mo Mirley, Shirley!
Lincoln!
Lincoln, Lincoln bo Bincoln Bonana fanna fo Fincoln

Fee fy mo Mincoln, Lincoln!
Come on everybody!
I say now let’s play a game
I betcha I can make a rhyme out of anybody’s name
The first letter of the name, I treat it like it wasn’t there
But a B or an F or an M will appear
And then I say bo add a B then I say the name and Bonana fanna and a
fo
And then I say the name again with an F very plain
and a fee fy and a mo
And then I say the name again with an M this time

and there isn’t any name that I can’t rhyme
Arnold!
Arnold, Arnold bo Barnold Bonana fanna fo Farnold

Fee fy mo Marnold Arnold!
But if the first two letters are ever the same
I drop them both and say the name like
Bob, Bob drop the B’s Bo ob
For Fred, Fred drop the F’s Fo red
For Mary, Mary drop the M’s Mo ary

That’s the only rule that is contrary.
Okay? Now say Bo: Bo
Now Tony with a B: Bony
Then Bonana fanna fo: bonana fanna fo
Then you say the name again with an F very plain: Fony
Then a fee fy and a mo: fee fy mo
Then you say the name again with an M this time: Mony

And there isn’t any name that you can’t rhyme
Say Tony, Tony, bo-bo-ney
bo-na-na fanna, fo-fo-ney
fee fi mo-mo-ney, Tony!
Let’s do Billy!
Billy, Billy, bo-gil-ly, bo-na-na
fanna, fo-fil-ly
fee fi mo-mil-ly, Billy!
Let’s do Marsha!
Marsha, Marsha, bo-bar-sha
bo-na-na fanna, fo-far-sha
fee fi mo-ar-sha, Marsha!
Little trick with Nick!
Nick, Nick, bo-bick, bo-na-na
fanna fo fick, fee fi mo-mick. Nick!
The name game.

Red Rubber Ball -Song Lyric Sunday – Metaphor

Standard

Red Rubber Ball – Song Lyric Sunday – Metaphor IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 6/10/18

***

Helen has taken another suggestion from Jim, and used the prompt of ‘metaphor’ used in songs. Thanks Helen, and Jim! 🙂

I had to look up what a metaphor was. It seems it is about the same as a simile, but not exactly.  A simile says one thing is  like another thing, and a metaphor doesn’t use the word ‘like’, but still compares two ideas. Well, sorry,  I’m not good at explaining these things. Here’s Jim’s explanation, which is far better than mine: A metaphor is a comparison between two words or phrases that doesn’t use the words “like” or “as”, because then it would be a simile.

Go check out Song Lyric Sunday! It’s so much fun! Also, stop by Jim’s place to see the song he chose…it’s a good one! 🙂

***

I’ve always liked this song, and every time I hear it, it reminds me of the time I was in Jr. High School. I took a summer class of homemaking/sewing/cooking, that summer. We had a lot of fun, and could listen to the radio while we were in class. This song played a lot during those days.

I think this song uses both metaphor and simile. Can you find them?

The lyrics are on the video!

For me, this was a hard one to find songs that had smile in the title or lyrics. Then, I found this one. I think the My Little Ponies are so cute, and yay! they had a smile song. Hope you enjoy the video and song, and that it brings a smile to you, too. 🙂

Song Lyric Sunday – Name’s the Same IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 5/20/18

***

Today’s SLS is a bit different. We’re supposed to find a song by someone that has the same name as ours. Here’s what Helen has said:

So, let’s just get right to it.  Put your thinking caps on, break out your playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week, brought to us by the lovely Kirstwrites, is “a song from an artist/singer who shares your name”.   While this might be a difficult challenge, you could always just post a favorite song if you aren’t able to find an artist/singer that shares your name along with a song you like.  We’ve got to make it difficult sometimes, right?

Thanks Helen and Kirstwrites! 🙂

So, I could only think of two singers with my name, Barbara. Those were Barbra Streisand, and Barbara Mandrell. While these are very well-known and I do like some of their songs, I wanted something different and new to me. I spent some time googling, and you know what, there aren’t that many singers named, or called Barbara that I could find. Shocking, I know, as you’d think there would be a lot. Oh well, I kept on looking until I found this one, and I’d never heard it, but turns out it was a really beautiful song. The video is also so enchanting.

The singer is Monique Andree Serf, and goes by the stage name of Barbara. She sings in French, and the video’s lyrics are in French. I did find an English translation of the song. This song, “L’Aigle Noir” is said to have sold 1 million copies in only 12 hours!

Hope you enjoy hearing this song as much as I did.

***NOTE*** it says you have to click the YouTube symbol to watch the video there. 🙂

“L’Aigle Noir”, by Barbara (Monique Andree Serf), was released in 1961, from her album, “Unforgettable Melodies”, and was written by herself.

THE BLACK EAGLE ( Barbara)
1 One day or maybe one night
Near a lake, I fell asleep
When suddenly, it seemed to pierce the sky
And bolting from the blue popped up a black eagle
2 Slowly, spreading its wings
Slowly, I could see it twirling
Near me rustling its wings
As if it fell from the sky the bird came and settled.
3 Its eyes had the colour of ruby
And its wings had the colour of the night
And on its sparkling forehead
The crowned bird wore a blue diamond
4 It touched my cheek with its beak
And it slipped its neck into my hand
And then I recognized it
Popping up from the past, it came back to my mind
5 Oh tell me Bird, take me away
Let’s go back to our old land
Like before in my childish dreams
to pick up shivering some stars, some stars
6 Like before in my childish dreams
Like before on a white cloud
Like before to lit up the sun
And be a rain-maker and make marvels.
7 The black eagle rustling its wings
Flew off to reach back the sky
8 Four feathers with the colour of the night
One teardrop or maybe a ruby
I was cold, there was nothing left of me
The bird left me alone with my sorrow
9 One day or was it one night
Near a lake, I fell asleep
When suddenly, it seemed to pierce the sky
And bolting from the blue popped up a black eagle

Heart I Hear You Beating – Song Lyric Sunday – Heart  IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 5/13/18

***

Today for SLS, Helen has asked us to consider songs about the word ‘heart’. Thanks, Helen!

***

There are so many songs with the title or lyrics that include the word heart, but I can’t put them all on here, so I just went with this one.

This song is the very first one that I thought of that mentions ‘heart’. It’s an oldie, but one of my favorites from the way back music machine.

So, may I present Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton, singing…

***

“Heart I Hear You Beating”, by Wayne Newton, appears on his 1965 album, “Red Roses For a Blue Lady”. It was written by Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, and is on the Capitol label.

***

***

(I think these lyrics are a bit off, out of order or something, but everywhere I looked they were all pretty much the same.)

***

Oh, heart
I hear you beating
But her heart just
Ain’t beating like you

Oh, heart
You gotta watch out now
Or else she’s gonna
Break you in two

Oh, heart, you better believe me
Save yourself for somebody new

Don’t make such a fuss
There’s no hope for us
She don’t care the
Way that you do

Oh, heart
Please stop your pounding
Don’t settle yourself for
Something that’s wrong

Oh, heart
Now don’t let her hear you
Come on now
You gotta be strong

Oh, heart, you better believe me
Save yourself for somebody new

Don’t make such a fuss
There’s no hope for us
She don’t care the
Way that you do

Let me tell you now, heart
(Now be careful, heart)
I’m going crazy
(Now be careful, heart)
Can you hear a word that I say
(Now be careful, heart)

Oh, heart
(Now be careful, heart)
She doesn’t want you
(Now be careful, heart)
There’s no use
In acting this way
(Now be careful, heart)

Yes, I’m telling you, heart
(Won’t you be careful, heart)
You better believe me
(Won’t you be careful, heart)
Save yourself for somebody new
(Won’t you be careful, heart)

Don’t make such a fuss
There’s no hope for us
She don’t care the
Way that you do
(Now be careful, heart)

Yes, I’m telling you, heart
(Won’t you be careful, heart)
You better watch out
(Now be careful, heart)

I’m telling you, heart, heart, heart
(Won’t you be careful, heart)
Now watch out, you heart
(Won’t you be careful, heart)…

I’ve loved this song since it first came out.

Girl, you’re looking fine tonight
And every guy has got you in his sight
What you’re doing with a clown like me
Is surely one of life’s little mysteriesSo tonight I’ll ask the stars above
“How did I ever win your love?”
What did I do?
What did I say
To turn your angel eyes my way?Well, I’m the guy who never learned to dance
Never even got one second glance
Across a crowded room was close enough
I could look but I could never touchSo tonight I’ll ask, the stars above
“How did I ever win your love?”
What did I do?
What did I say
To turn your angel eyes my way?Don’t anyone wake me
If it’s just a dream
Cause she’s the best thing
Ever happened to me

But this girl you see
She’s leavin’ here with me tonight

There’s just one more thing that I need to know
If this is love why does it scare me so?
It must be somethin’ only you can see
Cause girl I feel it when you look at me

So tonight I’ll ask the stars above
“How did I ever win your love?”
What did I do?
What did I say
To turn your angel eyes my way?
Hey, hey, hey, yeah, awww

Sister – Song Lyric Sunday – Brother/Sister IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 4/22/18

***

Today for SLS, Helen has given us the prompt word, ‘Brother/Sister’. Thanks, Helen!

This is one of my favorite songs, but it makes me sad. It has been speculated that it was written as a tribute to one of the band member’s sisters, who has passed on, but that has not been confirmed. It has also been mentioned that it was written by band member, Zac Malloy, about his sister who moved to California.

I just like it because it reminds me of my own sister. I haven’t seen her in a long time, ever since she moved out of town. We talk on the phone, but it’s just not the same as having fun, laughing, and talking about the early days.

***

“Sister”, by The Nixons, was released as a single from their album, “Foma”, in 1995. It was written by Zac Malloy, and is on the MCA label.

Here I am again,
Overwhelming feelings
A thousand miles away
From your ocean home
Part of me is near
Thoughts of what we were invade
The miles that stand between
We can’t separate
Your all I hoped you’d become
Sister I see you
Dancing on the stage
Of memory
Sister I miss you
Fleeting visits pass
Still they satisfy
Reminders of the next
Overshadow goodbye
Our flames burn as one
Sister I see you
Dancing on the stage
Of memory
Sister I miss you
All I am begins with you
Thoughts of hope understood
Half of me breathes in you
Thoughts of love remain true
Here we are again saying goodbye
Still we fall asleep underneath the same sky
You’re all I knew you’d become
Sister I see you
Dancing on the stage
Of memory
Sister I miss you
Entwined, you and I
Our souls speak from across the miles
Intertwined, you and I
Our blood flows from the same inside
Half of me, breathes in you
Thoughts of love remain true
I see you, I feel you
When I close my eyes
I see walking there…
I see you dancing in my mind

We’ll Sing in the Sunshine – Song Lyric Sunday – Stay IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 4/15/18

***

For SLS today, Helen has asked us to consider songs with the word “Stay”. Thanks, Helen!

***

At first I couldn’t think of any songs using the word ‘stay’ in the title or in the lyrics. I got to looking around on here, and finally found a few. That said, I didn’t go with any of them. The more I kept thinking, I did remember an old song that I’ve always liked. This one below. Then I kept thinking of more, and even heard one I hadn’t seen mentioned, on the radio. Now, I had too many!

Anyway, hope you enjoy this one. 🙂

***

“We’ll Sing in the Sunshine”, by Gale Garnett, was released in 1964, from her album, “My Kind of Folk Songs”. It was written by Gale Garnett, and is on the RCA Victor label.

We’ll sing in the sunshine
We’ll laugh every day
We’ll sing in the sunshine
Then I’ll be on my way

I will never love you
The cost of love’s too dear
But though I’ll never love you
I’ll stay with you one year

And we can sing in the sunshine
We’ll laugh everyday
We’ll sing in the sunshine
Then I’ll be on my way

I’ll sing to you each morning
I’ll kiss you every night
But darlin’ don’t cling to me
I’ll soon be out of sight

But we can sing in the sunshine
We’ll laugh everyday
We’ll sing in the sunshine
Then I’ll be on my way

My daddy he once told me
“Hey, don’t you love you any man
Just take what they may give you
And give but what you can.”

You’ll laugh everyday
You’ll sing in the sunshine
Then be on your wayAnd when a year has ended
And I have gone away
You’ll often speak about me
And this is what you’ll say:We sang in the sunshine
You know we laughed everyday
We sang in the sunshine
Then she went on her way
