Song Lyric Sunday: Lake – ‘The End’

With this week’s theme being ‘Ocean/Sea/Lake/Bay’, my choice may seem a bit left-fieldish. However, the lyrics of this stupendous Doors song do indeed feature the word lake and, bizarrely, it was the first song that came to my mind when I saw the prompt, so I make no apologies for using it. This is the…

Song Lyric Sunday: No – ‘No Quarter’

This week’s theme is, to put it bluntly, ‘No’. This is another of those where I was able to go with the first song that popped into my head. Led Zeppelin, from ‘Houses of the Holy’. Another example of allusions to Nordic mythology (cf ‘The Immigrant Song’). You couldn’t describe the lyrics as particularly profound,…

Song Lyric Sunday: New – ‘New Morning’

Can’t you hear that rooster crowing? Rabbit running down across the road Underneath the bridge where the…

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.

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’.

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…
