Song Lyric Sunday: New – ‘New Morning’

Helen’s theme for the final Song Lyric Sunday of the year is the appropriate one of ‘New’. This was one of those where the first song that came to my mind just seems to fit the theme perfectly. Can’t you hear that rooster crowing? Rabbit running down across the road Underneath the bridge where the…

30-Day Song Challenge: Days 26-30

Well, this has been fun, hasn’t it? And now the final instalment of the 30-Day Song Challenge. 26 A song that makes you want to fall in love: ‘You Wear It Well’ “You made me feel a millionaire” Personal reasons. Nothing to add….oh, except that this comes from the album ‘Never A Dull Moment’. How…

30-Day Song Challenge: Day 25

I know that I’ve been following this 30-Day Song Challenge in six-days-at-a-time chunks, but I just had to let this one stand alone. 25 A song you like by an artist no longer living: ‘Happy Christmas (War Is Over)‘ “So this is Christmas” If only.  

30-Day Song Challenge: Days 19-24

Here is the fourth instalment of my contribution to the 30-Day Song Challenge currently running. 19 A song that makes you think about life: ‘Five Years’ “My brain hurts a lot” So, what would you do if you definitively knew the date of your own demise (and, more particularly, that it was not that far…

Song Lyric Sunday: Season – ‘Weather Report Suite’

Helen’s theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is ‘Season’. Why settle for just one when the Grateful Dead will give you all four in this epic. Winter rain, now tell me why, Summers fade, and roses die. The answer came; the wind and rain. Golden hills, now veiled in grey, Summer leaves have blown…

30-Day Song Challenge: Days 13-18

here we go with the third instalment of the 30-Day Song Challenge that I’m currently playing along with. 13. A song you like from the 70s: ‘Pretty Vacant’ ”And we don’t care” My only problem with choosing a song that I like from the 70s is deciding which one to go for of what must…

Song Lyric Sunday: Girls – ‘California Girls’

Even a dullard such as myself had rather guessed that, after ‘Boys’ last week, Helen’s theme for this Song Lyric Sunday was going to be ‘Girls’. So, without further ado, here’s the first song that leapt to mind. Maybe a little politically incorrect these days, but I don’t think any further introduction is required for…

30-Day Song Challenge: Days 7-12

Right then, here is the second instalment of my contribution to the current 30-Day Song Challenge.7. A song to drive to: ‘Born To Be Wild’ “Get your motor running” Never having driven myself, I couldn’t say for certain what would be suitable for this category. However, this one needs no introduction and always reminds me…

Song Lyric Sunday: Boys – ‘Boys Keep Swinging’

When I saw that Helen had set the theme of ‘Boys’ for this week’s instalment of ‘Song Lyric Sunday’, I had the unusual experience of simultaneously having two potential candidates immediately come to mind. As such, it was only ever going to be Thin Lizzy’s ‘The Boys Are Back In Town’ or this by David…

30-Day Song Challenge: Days 1-6

Late to the party (as usual), but I’ve only just found out about the 30-Day Song Challenge that seems to be doing the rounds on WordPress in December. For the life of me I can’t trace its originator, but it’s my sort of thing so I thought I’d play along. This is the full programme…
