Thanks for the photo inspiration, Paula!

This week’s theme is garden and the picture is below.

This is something I experiment with sometimes – creating random word poems from Google search. I’ve done others and they always turn out pretty cool. So today I went to this place (link below). You enter one word, and the AI will create a poem from your word. Sometimes they make sense, other times not so much, but it’s fun.

It’s from a place called ‘Poem Portraits’.

***

The first word I tried was ‘garden’, and the poem came up.  It says:

“Your garden shines and closes are seen by the sun. This value is the golden flower”.

***

***

Then the second time I typed in the word ‘sea’, and this one came up:

“The sea with a star shall be conquered by sleep. Our destruction shall be calm and still and hard.”

***

What do you think? Want to try it? Here’s the link:

Weekly Song Challenge, Round 19

Here we go with another round of interesting prompts and music, hosted by Laura! Join in and see other entries by clicking the above link. It’s fun! Thanks, Laura!

Copy rules and add to your own post, pinging back to this post.
Post music videos for your answers to the musical questions.
Tag two people to participate!
Easy!

***

1. Post a video of a song that makes you think about being a teenager.

“Where the Action Is”, by Paul Revere and the Raiders. Written by Steve Venet and Tommy Boyce, it was the theme song for the TV show of the same name, which ran from 1965 to 1967.

As a teen-ager at this time, I remember this show and watched it all the time. Later, the show went on tour with Paul Revere and the Raiders, plus a lot more singing stars of the day. They did come to our town, and I went to it … amazing and fun … it was the first concert I ever went to.

***

***

2. Post a video of a song that is about finding your voice.

***

This prompt is something I don’t understand, so … here’s a good song … maybe about finding your ‘voice’ as a writer.

“Paperback Writer” by the Beatles, credited to Lennon/McCartney, was released in 1966.

***

***

3. Post a video of a song that represents a “I’ll kick your ass attitude”.

***

“How Do You Like Me Now”, by Toby Keith, was co-written by him, and released in 1999.

This song is kind of funny, because the guy finally made it as a singing star, and he goes back to show the girl that snubbed him back in high school, what she missed out on.

Love Is In Da Blog – Wedding – Day 19

https://thebeewritesdownloads.wordpress.com/2019/02/19/love-is-in-da-blog-19-my-favourite-wedding-song-prompt-post-for-february-20th/

***

For today’s song suggestion, Bee has asked for wedding songs that we like. Thanks, Bee!

There are so many songs that would work for a wedding, according to whatever the couple getting married wanted and liked. There are some considered traditional songs, which are lovely, too.

For my own 1969 wedding song, we played the record, “Love Is All Around”, by the Troggs, which was a bit unusual at the time for wedding songs. I’ve posted this one a few times on here, so won’t again today.

This song I chose for today’s prompt, is a good one. The reason I thought of it is because it was played on the TV show, “Friends”, for Phobe’s wedding. We watch that show all the time, and the song is so pretty the way they did it.

“Here, There, and Everywhere”, by the Beatles, was released in 1966, from their album, “Revolver”. It was written by Paul McCartney, and credited to Lennon-McCartney. It is on the Parlophone label.

Jim gave us lots of possible songs to choose from (thanks, JIm), but I kept looking for something else. I looked through a few of my favorite artists songs to see if they had laugh in the titles or words. It wasn’t easy, but I did run across this one, which did. Yay! I do like this one a lot!

“Good Day Sunshine”, by The Beatles, was released from their album, “Revolver”, in 1966. It was written by Lennon/McCartney, and is on the Parlophone label.

Chorus]
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

[Verse 1]
I need to laugh, and when the sun is out
I’ve got something I can laugh about
I feel good, in a special way
I’m in love and it’s a sunny day

[Chorus]
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

[Verse 2]
We take a walk, the sun is shining down
Burns my feet as they touch the ground

[Chorus]
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

[Verse 3]
And then we lie, beneath a shady tree
I love her and she’s loving me
She feels good, she knows she’s looking fine
I’m so proud to know that she is mine

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

The questions:

1. When it is hot, I _________.
2. I am looking forward to _________ this month.
3. The theme song of my life would be _________.
4. There is no such thing as _________.
***
My answers:
  1. When it is hot, which it definitely is in the summer here, I mostly stay inside the house with the A/C going.
  2. What am I looking forward to this month? More of the same, doing whatever I want, and hoping for more rain showers to cool things off. Nothing spectacular coming up as far as I know.
  3. The theme song of my life? I have no idea. I like all music, so every day would be a different theme, but I’ve included a video below that really speaks to me in all kinds of ways.
  4. There’s no such thing as …? There probably are such things somewhere. If it can be thought of, there’s a strong possibility that someone has figured out a way to make it happen, whether writing about it, doing it, or building/cooking/exploring/inventing it.

Return to Sender – Song Lyric Sunday

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 2/25/18

This week for SLS, Helen has reminded us of the days when actual pen and paper letters were written and sent. So, the suggested prompt is ‘letters’.

Thank you, Helen!

“Return to Sender”, by Elvis Presley, was released as a single from the album, “Girls, Girls, Girls”, in 1962. It was written by Winfield Scott, and Otis Blackwell, and is on the RCA Victor label.

***

***

[Intro: Elvis Presley]
Return to sender!
Return to sender!

[Verse 1: Elvis Presley]
I gave a letter to the postman
He put it in his sack
Bright in early next morning
He brought my letter back

[Verse 2: Elvis Presley]
She wrote upon it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone
We had a quarrel, a lover’s spat
I write I’m sorry but my letter keeps coming back

[Verse 3: Elvis Presley]
So then I dropped it in the mailbox
And sent it special D

Bright in early next morning
It came right back to me

[Bridge: Elvis Presley]
She wrote upon it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such person, no such zone

This time I’m gonna take it myself
And put it right in her hand
And if it comes back the very next day
Then I’ll understand the writing on it

[Outro: Elvis Presley]
Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone
Return to sender
Return to sender
Return to sender
Return to sender

Now, here’s another one. I actually chose this one first, but then found someone else had already picked this one. Oh well, I figure we all have lots of different readers on our blogs, so I’m including this one, too.

***

“P. S. I Love You”, by the Beatles, was released as the B side of the single, “Love Me Do”, in 1962 (UK), and 1964 (US). It was credited to the John Lennon/Paul McCartney team, as the writers, but I read that it was mostly the creation from Paul McCartney. It is on the Parlophone, and Tollie 9008 labels.

This song I found is a cover of the Beatles song. I found that most all of the Beatles song videos have been removed from Youtube.

I don’t know who did this cover, but it’s very good, in my opinion, and the photos included are nice for remembering. It also fits the prompt of writing letters.

Hope you enjoy going down memory lane with this one!

*[Chorus 1]
As I write this letter
Send my love to you

Remember that I’ll always
Be in love with you

[Chorus 2]
Treasure these few words till we’re together
Keep all my love forever
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

[Chorus 3]
I’ll be coming home again to you, love
And till the day I do, love
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

[Chorus 1]
As I write this letter
Send my love to you
Remember that I’ll always
Be in love with you

[Chorus 2]
Treasure these few words till we’re together
Keep all my love forever
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

As I write this letter
Send my love to you

Remember that I’ll always
Be in love with you

[Chorus 3]
I’ll be coming home again to you, love
And till the day I do, love
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

Manic Monday – Turn the Page

Manic Monday – Turn the Page

https://flipflopseveryday.wordpress.com/2017/10/30/manic-monday-9-challenge-turn-the-page/#respond

***

For this week’s Manic Monday, Sandi suggests the song and title, “Turn the Page”. If you’d like to join in the challenge, just click the above link. The only thing, really, is just use the weekly song title somewhere in your post. It’s fun! 🙂

***

This song, by the Beatles tells about a man who wants to be a paperback book writer. In the lyrics, he mentions writing around 1,000 pages so far, and I would suppose he turned a lot of pages while he was writing it. 🙂 I couldn’t find a good video of the Fab 4 singing the song, but here’s Paul McCartney, singing it live.

“Paperback Writer”, by the Beatles was released in 1966. It was written by John Lennon & Paul McCartney, and is on the Capitol (US) labels.

***

So, do you like to read paperback books? I do. Well, I like hardback books, too. I’ll read just about anything, fiction or non-fiction. I used to not use a book mark to save the page I was on. I just dog-eared them, if it was my own book. I try to use a book mark now, and have quite a few. Most are cute, I think. The thing is, I can’t find half of them, because I leave them in a book when I put them back on the shelf. I took a picture of some of them one time. I’ll see if I can find it. Hang on a second, okay? …

 

I knew I had this photo, but it took awhile to find it. I also make my own book marks, mostly to leave places we go so random people can find them and keep them.

Now, I usually like a regular paper book, so I can actually turn the pages. I do read some on my Kindle, but turning the page is just not the same. Guess it would be more like ‘swipe’ the page, instead of ‘turn the page’.

That’s about all I have to say about turning the page. 🙂
