Song Lyric Sunday: Size – ‘Big River’

One of the many great things about Song Lyric Sunday is that you learn something new every week, whether from researching your own contribution or looking at other submissions. This time, for example, I decided quite quickly that in response to Jim’s prompt this week relating to ‘size’ I would go with ‘Big River’, a…

Song Lyric Sunday: Herbs and Spices – ‘Cinnamon Girl’

After having to dig a little deper than usual for inspiration last week, on this occasion I’m going with my first thought for Jim’s latest, flavour-packed, Song Lyric Sunday prompt.

However, John Lennon’s ‘#9 Dream’ is much more…

Song Lyric Sunday: Relating – ‘Us And Them’

Song Lyric Sunday: Depression – ‘Yer Blues’

This week’s prompts for Song Lyric Sunday are suitably downbeat signs of the times, relating to confinement, isolation and loneliness. Which reminded me of this ultra-heavy blues from The Beatles’ white album. Somewhat ironically, it was recorded with all four Beatles together in a very small room at Abbey Road: confinement perhaps, but certainly no…
