Play That Song!

I had it all figured out. Jim actually gave us the theme for this week’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY weeks ago. He told us it was Harmony/Melody/Music

I had a song all chosen. I thought it was a great choice. I really did. I just stopped enjoying it over the past few weeks for some reason.

But then something happened. That something is spring! Spring outside and spring in my step. Spring in the air and spring in my heart. Spring blooming and spring smiling. Yes that’s right, spring seems to be trying to sneak in early in England.

It feels so good! There are camellias outside my gates and in the garden! And my whole mood has been on the up and up. I already feel excited about the thought of spring and then summer ahead!

So…I accidentally stumbled across a song that I have never heard before (even though I am sure Paula at LightMotifsII recommended this group some time ago – I forgot to check them out as I intended to). I really really liked this song! And even more so, I loved the video. It has such a feel good factor to it.

So…this is my choice for this week’s theme – maybe not a perfect match, but it is nearly there, and it has a great catchy melody/harmony. It is great pick-me-up music!

Play that song
The one that makes me go all night long
The one that makes me think of you
That’s all you gotta do
Hey Mister DJ when you gonna spin it
My baby’s favourite record
She been waiting for a minute
She invited all her friends
And I’m buying all the rounds
And they’re all dolled up
DJ please don’t let me down
When you gonna play that song, now
When you gonna earn that pay
When you gonna play that song
And make my day
She said
Play that song
The one that makes me go all night long
The one that makes me think of you
That’s all you gotta do
HeyPlay that song
The one that makes me stay out til dawn
The one that makes me go ooh
That’s all you gotta do
Hey Mister Guitar
When you gonna strum it
My girl just heard this song
And you should play it cause she loves it
Can you get me off the hook
Get them fingers picking now
I’ll throw some money in your cup
Mister please don’t let me down

When you gonna play that song, now
Why you gotta hesitate
When you gonna play that song
And make my day
She said

Play that song
The one that makes me go all night long
The one that makes me think of you
That’s all you gotta do
Hey

Play that song
The one that makes me stay out til dawn
The one that makes me go ooh
That’s all you gotta do

Oh, wait till you see my baby
Moo-oo-oove, moo-oo-oove
Moo-oo-oove
Oh, wait till you see my baby
Moo-oo-oove, moo-oo-oove
Moo-oo-oove
Oh, come on now

Play that song
The one that makes her go all night long
The one that makes her think of me
That’s all you gotta do
Hey

Play that song
The one that makes her stay out til dawn
The one that makes her go ooh
That’s all you gotta do
That’s all you gotta do
That’s all you gotta do
That’s all you gotta do

    1. I had never heard it before. I wonder if the band Train are mainly big in the US. For some reason here in England I have not come across them.

      It seemed like a really happy feel-good song.

    1. We are loving it! On Saturday there were lots of people wandering round town wearing shorts and T-shirts. But you never know here in England, not counting our chick-a-dees before the are hatched.
