Let’s Waste Time Chasing Cars

Jim has asked for car songs today, which brought to mind one of my favourite songs. Gary Lightbody said it was the “purest love song” he had ever written. I think it is a pure love song. I don’t ask anything else of a love song really. Just wanting to be with someone with whom…

I’m Walking With Spiders

I’ve been busy and not posted much in the past couple of months (lockdown lifting is getting me out of the house at long last) thought I would join in with Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday again when I saw this week’s theme. Insects or bugs Jim has asked us for. The National are one of…

Elevated To Greater Heights

I was not sure about what to pick on this them of Elevator Music, but I am presuming it is about chilling out music. Is there anything as relaxing as “Fields Of Gold”? Sting of course deserves all credit for the song itself, and although I am not a huge fan of his music (my…

Looking For Heaven

I thought I had picked a song that featured the word “heaven”, but it turns out that it also has “hell”. If you are not sure who Florence + The Machine are, then scroll right down to the bottom of this post first for one incredible introduction to them. Florence is a performer at large!…

I’ll Fix It For Us

Jim asked us to pick a song with either fix or make in it. Avoiding the obvious Coldplay track, I decided to go with Pink. She’s been a phenomenon on the music scene and she has a legacy of impactful songs. This is probably my favourite from Pink. I vividly remember it coming on the…

Taking A Break

I am grateful for all the bloggers who have popped by to read my posts and liked or commented on them. It’s an interesting little hobby – this blogging business. Just thought I would drop a post in now to explain we had a sudden bereavement in the family – not covid – but a…

Accolades

I always find these award shows (like the Oscars) irritating. It’s the glory and the hype that I find sickening. There is a part of me that is totally prejudiced. I have a high appreciation for hard working humbled people who are often overlooked. It is frustrating to me to see people, some of whom…

No More Farewell

I have chosen the “farewell” from Jim’s list of words today, and I have chosen a song that is bound to cheer you up on a Sunday. “Beyond The Sea” is a song with English lyrics set to the music of Charles Trenet’s “La Mer”. It has a great feeling to it. It was used…
