51 Weeks/51 Songs From the Past – Finale  

51 Weeks: 51 Songs From The Past: Week 51: Paul McCartney & Wings – Mull Of Kintyre

***

This is the final week of Hugh’s challenge. I’ll be sad to see it end, but he has mentioned there will be something new coming up soon. Thanks for hosting, Hugh! I’ve enjoyed listening to lots of music during the year, some old favorites, and some new to me. It was fun to find songs to go with your prompt. 🙂

So, we are to find a favorite song that we’d like to hear for the New Year. I’m not sure if it is to be a song about New Year’s Day, or just a favorite of mine.

The song I listened to the most this year is the one I’ll go with. It was the favorite of mine for the year.

Memories…

I know I’ve featured this song a few times on the blog, but I think it works for a New Year song, too. It seems to speak to the tragedy of Alzheimer’s, in that many memories are lost, but at times a glimmer of those memories may flash back to you. Also, that things may be different, yet there is always a new beginning. What I get too, is that it is the start of a brand new year, and a time to make new memories.

This week for SOCS we have to think of the word/letters ‘vol’. That’s not even a word, you say? True, but we can use any word that has ‘vol’ in it. Yay!

I’ve thought of several, so here goes…

Volunteer – I don’t remember that I’ve ever done any volunteer work, so can’t write about that.

Volumn – wait, had to look up how to spell this, and it is ‘volume’! (haha, I thought I was good at spelling, but I’ve found I have to look up words more often now)

Anyway, Volume…

I like volume (not with a capital letter this time, or maybe it should be VOLUME!) Most times I like to listen to music very loud. I like to sing along, but can’t carry a tune for anything. So, if the music is turned up really loud, I can sing along, and no one can actually hear my out of tune singing. Ya think?

Another volume is for my hair. I have very fine, straight hair that won’t curl for anything, but I want more volume in it. So, I backcomb/rat/tease the top so it will look fuller, with more volume.

And this brings us to the very first thing I thought of when I read the prompt of ‘vol’.

Volbeat

Volbeat is one of my favorite bands. I really like all their songs. (Oh no, you say…here comes another music video from me. You are right!) Now, excuse me a second while I go find one to share. Okay? It’ll just take a tiny bit of time… Take this interlude to think your own thoughts about the prompt, ‘vol’.

Here’s one of my favorite videos from Volbeat!

So, that’s my thoughts on the prompt, ‘vol’. Hope your weekend is full of Bliss, and at the volume you prefer. 🙂

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – Jan. 1st/17

SPIDER DANCE

Weave your web of love around me

Seduce me with your words, sublime

Silken strands to hold and bind me

Capture me…I’ll call you mine…

Spin your web in sticky spirals

I’ll never want to flee,

Lure me with your lyrics, love…

Come closer…come get me.

Dance with me, my Spider…dance…

Be wanton with your wildness,

Pierce me with your poisonous lance,

Our rebel love is reckless.

I wrote this poem back in 2015. I like anything to do with spiders…the way they look, all so different, that they are kind of scary, and that they are beneficial by catching annoying insects. If I see one I try to take a photo of it. I don’t run screaming from the room, and most times I leave them where they are. I do catch spiders sometimes, if they are in the house, releasing it outside.

Here’s a song I like, about a woman and her spider dance. 🙂

The song is called “Lola Montez” by Volbeat. It was based on a true story, of the woman, and her Spider Dance. I just call it the Spider Dance song, because of the lyrics.
