Numb and Unsteady

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: SONGS WITH ONE WORD TITLES

Well….something strange has happened. I am sure I chose a song a month ago and prepared a post but it has vanished into thin air. So here I am at the last minute trying to think of the song and wishing I could remember what my original post was!! My memory is fading!!! This is what happens when you are twenty-one*. (I’m twenty-one forever – ok!)

Woman, Country Side, Hat, Summer, Field

Some songs just seem to fit the total discombobulation we have all felt during the past year!!! I amused myself at one point by putting together my own little Pandemic Compilation, and I remember noticing that almost all the songs on my list had one word titles. It’s all we could cope with this past year. Just keep things simple! We cannot keep up with all these changes!!

My inspiration for this is a song I only discovered through a film…a film dramatization of a novel. The song is called “Numb” and it is from the one and only Max Jury! Today we are giving out a special prize of a year’s supply of toilet roll to the first person who can come up with which film I heard this in. (Actually, Jack is telling me not to give away any toilet rolls, we still don’t know what the rest of 2021 has in store!)

OK….if you can’t guess, and you want to know the answer….scroll down to the second song in this post. This week I am giving you two songs with one word titles….I will let you scroll down to see which it is!

Hhhmmm… Hhmm!
Hhhmmm… Hhmm!
Hhhmmm… Hhmm!
Hhhmmm… Hhmm!

Honey, here I go again, Hhhmmm…
Down that crooked road of sin, Hhhmmm…
My momma locked me out again, Hhhmmm… Hhmmhhmm!
And hung me high to rust under the rain

I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, Oohhh… Ohh… Ohh
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, Oohhh…

When I sing my stranger blues, Hhhmmm… Hhmm!
I make it on the local news, Hhhmmm… Hhmm!
Everybody likes to see you lose, Hhhmmm… Hhmm… Hhmm!
And hang you high to rust under the rain

I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, Oohhh… Ohh… Ohh

Little bluebird at my window
Sing a pretty song for me
Don’t you know that you can fly, fly, fly away
Don’t you know that you can leave

I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb
I am numb, I’m numb

The second song today – with a one word title of course, is called “Unsteady”…and I love it!!! It is from the mighty X Ambassadors.

Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady

Momma
Come here
Approach
Appear
Daddy
I’m alone
‘Cause this house don’t feel like home

If you love me
Don’t let go
If you love me
Don’t let go

Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady

Mother
I know
That you’re tired of being alone
Dad I know you’re trying
To fight when you feel like flying

But if you love me
Don’t let go
If you love me
Don’t let go

Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady

      1. I think it was my computer as I had a lot of tabs open at the same time. I rebooted it since then and when I listened to the song today it sounded fine. Sorry for complaining and thanks for adding the additional video for me Mel, that was so sweet of you.

  1. I love your choices Mel! Love them! Did you know that “Me Before You” was on TV last night? I was asleep but Ben said he watched some of it. It is such a beautiful and moving movie.

  2. I like both songs. I like the second one better and it’s probably because of the orchestra. But the first song touched the sentimental part of me too. I can relate to the first song too. I’ve had days like that, maybe we all do. Good choices.
