This is one of my favorite Eagles songs. It was written after and concerning 9-11, but still could be about the state of the world at this time, too. There are still wars going on, and now there is violence in the streets, and the pandemic virus – they all take loved ones away, leaving a hole in their family’s world, and in our hearts. ❤

Hope you can see the video, as it wasn’t on YouTube. (sorry – the video just keeps going on about other stuff, and I didn’t know how to not have that part on there, so just stop the recording after the song. )

From the Song Facts article:

  • The Eagles wrote this after a tour in Europe. They started the composition around September 11, 2001. The message is that love is the ultimate savior in a world damaged and corrupted by evil and hatred. It also conveys parents’ dreams and hopes for their children in such a troubled society. >>
  • Don Henley explained in the liner notes for The Very Best Of The Eagles compilation that he penned on the darkest day in American history: September 11, 2001. “I sat down at the piano in my home studio and started putting some chords with the phrase ‘hole in the world,'” he said. “Months went by, but I didn’t show it to anybody. Then, other things started happening that gave additional meanings to ‘Hole in the World,’ particularly after the [Iraqi] war started. The fighting was supposedly over in May, and yet one or two or three of our boys were – and still are – getting killed every day, which means somebody’s daddy is not coming home. So that’s another ‘hole’ — a huge hole in somebody’s life – a child, a wife, a mother, a father, a brother, a sister.”

“Hole in the World”, by the Eagles, was written in response to September 11, 2001. It was released in 2003, from the album, “The Very Best Of”,  and was written by Don Henley and Glenn Frey. It is on The Eagles Recording Company II label

There's a hole in the world tonight.
There's a cloud of fear and sorrow.
There's a hole in the world tonight.
Don't let there be a hole in the world tomorrow.

They say that anger is just love disappointed.
They say that love is just a state of mind.
But all this fighting over who is anointed,
Oh, how can people be so blind?

There's a hole in the world tonight.
There's a cloud of fear and sorrow.
There's a hole in the world tonight.
Don't let there be a hole in the world tomorrow.

Oh, they tell me there's a place over yonder
Cool water running through the burning sand.
Until we learn to love one another,
We will never reach the Promised Land.

There's a hole in the world tonight.
There's a cloud of fear and sorrow.
There's a hole in the world tonight.
Don't let there be a hole in the world tomorrow.

(There's a hole in the world tonight.)
They say that anger is just love disappointed.
(There's a cloud of fear and sorrow.)
They say that love is just a state of mind.
(There's a hole in the world tonight.)
But all this fighting over who will be anointed,
(Don't let there be a hole in the world tomorrow.)
Oh, how can people be so blind?

There's a hole in the world tonight.
(Hole in the world)
There's a cloud of fear and sorrow.
(Fear and sorrow)
There's a hole in the world tonight.
(Oh)
Don't let there be a hole in the world tomorrow (repeat three times)

This time for Cee’s twisted alphabet, the letter is F – Fun or Flowers.

I thought this would be both, as it was fun to put together, funny to watch,  and there is a flower, too.

These are my cute, light activated skeleton and flower.

I’m still learning how to make videos, and this is one of my first tries. It looks big, but when you click on it, it goes to a more normal size. 🙂

The background music is by the Eagles, and the video with lyrics is below.

Enjoy!

LIES/LYING -for SONG LYRIC SUNDAY

LIES/LYING – for SONG LYRIC SUNDAY

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 8/6/17

***

The theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is lies/lying.

Thanks, Helen, for another interesting prompt! 🙂

***

This first song, “Lying Eyes”, is by one of my favorite bands, The Eagles. I like all their songs, and this one fit right in with the challenge prompt.

The second song, by Three Dog Night, is about lying, too. It’s called, “Liar”. We saw Three Dog Night in concert a long time ago, in Oklahoma City. It was a great performance. Here’s my actual 45 record of the song.

“Lyin’ Eyes”, by the Eagles, was released in 1975, from the album, “One of These Nights”. It was written by Don Henley and Glenn Frey. It’s on the Asylum label.

***

City girls just seem to find out early
How to open doors with just a smile
A rich old man
And she won’t have to worry
She’ll dress up all in lace and go in style

Late at night a big old house gets lonely
I guess every form of refuge has its price
And it breaks her heart to think her love is only
Given to a man with hands as cold as ice

So she tells him she must go out for the evening
To comfort an old friend who’s feelin’ down
But he knows where she’s goin’ as she’s leavin’
She is headed for the cheatin’ side of town

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin eyes

On the other side of town a boy is waiting
With fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal
She drives on through the night anticipating
‘Cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel

She rushes to his arms; they fall together
She whispers that it’s only for awhile
She swears that soon she’ll be comin’ back forever
She pulls away and leaves him with a smile

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t now way to hide your lyin’ eyes

And stares out at the stars up in the sky.
Another night, it’s gonna be a long one.
She draws the shade and hangs her head to cry.

She wonders how it ever got this crazy.
She thinks about a boy she knew in school.
Did she get tired or did she just get lazy?
She’s so far gone she feels just like a fool.

My oh my, you sure know how to arrange things.
You set it up so well, so carefully.
Ain’t it funny how your new life didn’t change things?
You’re still the same old girl you used to be.

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin’ eyes
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin’ eyes
Honey, you can’t hide your lyin’ eyes

“Liar”, by Three Dog Night, was released from the album, “Naturally”, in 1971, on the Dunhill label. It was written by Russ Ballard.

I won’t ever leave while you want me to stay
Nothing you could do that would turn me away
Hanging on every word
Believing the things I heard
Being a fool
You’ve taken my life, so take my soul
That’s what you said and I believed it all
I want to be with you as long
As you want me to
I won’t move away
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Liar, liar, liar

May I see no light
May I see no day
If I ever leave while you want me to stay
You can believe in me
I won’t be leaving
I won’t let you go
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Liar, liar, liar

51 Weeks: 51 Songs From The Past: Week 25: Elbow – One Day Like This

***

Thanks, Hugh, for another great prompt for this challenge!

Time for another look back at a song from the past. We were asked what song would we like as a wake up tune in the mornings.

One song I love to hear any time, morning, evening, day, or night, is this one you can see in the video below. It is a fun song, and easy to sing along to. I have to sing it, out loud, any time or place I hear it. This song always puts me in a good mood. It helps that I know all the words without looking. Not saying I can carry a tune at all, but I’ve sang it at home, in grocery stores, and restaurants…wherever I hear it playing.

You remember the song from last week, “The Way”, by Fastball? I heard it on the speakers at the grocery store just yesterday. Yes, I sang that one out loud, too. 🙂

A to Z BLOG CHALLENGE 2016 – LETTER T

A to Z BLOG CHALLENGE – LETTER T 4bd62ad9-ea74-4273-967b-7c426c911c61 IMG_2361

Today we have the letter T to write something about.

~

Letter T is for…Tiny Tim

Tiny Tim (Herbert B Khaury, 1932-1996), was an American singer. He was well known as the ukulele player with the high falsetto voice,and long curly hair. In 1969, he married ‘Miss Vicki’ on one of the first televised weddings. It was on “The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson”. I remember seeing this on TV. His best known song is called “Tiptoe Through the Tulips”. It is very unusual, and memorable. A fun fact: I once drew a huge poster of him, that was hung up in our high school cafeteria, during a special senior carnival event. On the picture of him, I wrote ‘Tiny Tim Loves You’. haha…actually everyone liked it.

Here’s Tiny Tim singing “Tiptoe Through the Tulips”

~

Other interesting things starting with the letter T:

Twiggy (Lesley Hornsby [Lawson]) is an English model, singer, actress, who was very popular in the mid 60s. She wore the styles of the day, had very short hair, and wore eye make-up that made her eyes look large. Later, she did more acting, and won Golden Globe Awards for her performance in “The Boyfriend”. Today, she has her own Twitter and Blog account, which focuses on relevant styles for women in their 60s and 70s.

~

Tie-Dye…It was a big thing to do back in the day. Taking a plain, white t-shirt, or other garment, tying or wrapping a rubber band around different sections of it, then dipping it in different color fabric dyes. When releasing the bands and drying the shirt, there would be unique patterns left from the dyes. I did a few of these, and they all turned out pretty cool.

Another great song from the Eagles, is “Take It to the Limit”. This song was written by Randy Meisner, Don Henley, and Glenn Frey, and released in 1975. Enjoy!
