It Must Have Been Something You Said

arms.pngI do not want to be arguing with Jack. He did not approve of my earlier choice for today’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY theme. Yes, I will admit, his choice is better than mine. But I am allowed to choose which songs to feature – am I not!

I told Jack that I had a feeling that were would be a lot of songs about being in the arms of your loved one – which is wonderful. I was just trying to think a little outside of the box. But he still would have preferred to feature a song that was worthy of more credit in his eyes. Jack can be very persuasive when he wants to be. I kind of like him being bossy about stuff like this. It gives me plenty of opportunities to tease him.

Because I love Jack, I am going to overlook his criticism. This is his top pick for today’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY. He has chosen “Died In Your Arms” by Cutting Crew, undeniably a superb track. We are not going to argue about whether Jack or I has better taste in music. (He would win that one I am afraid.)

I am not going to argue about anything with him…because I love being in Jack’s arms.

Oh, I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must’ve been something you said
I just died in your arms tonight

I keep looking for something I can’t get
Broken hearts lie all around me
And I don’t see an easy way
To get out of this

Her diary sits by the bedside table
The curtains are closed, the cat’s in her cradle
Who would’ve thought
That a boy like me could come to this?

Oh-oh-oh, whoa
Oh, I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must’ve been something you said
I just died in your arms tonight
Oh-oh-oh, whoa

Oh, I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must’ve been some kind of kiss
I should’ve walked away
I should’ve walked away

Is there any just cause for feeling like this?
On the surface, I’m a name on a list
I try to be discreet
But then blow it again

I’ve lost and found, it’s my final mistake
She’s loving by proxy, no give and all take
‘Cause I’ve been thrilled to fantasy
One too many times

Oh-oh-oh, whoa
Oh, I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must’ve been something you said
I just died in your arms tonight

Oh, I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must’ve been some kind of kiss
I should’ve walked away
I should’ve walked away

It was a long hot night
She made it easy, she made it feel right
But now it’s over, the moment is gone
I followed my hands, not my head
I know I was wrong

Oh, I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must’ve been something you said
I just died in your arms tonight

Oh, I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must’ve been some kind of kiss
I should’ve walked away
I should’ve walked away

Legs That Go On For Miles And Miles

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: ARMS/ELBOWS/KNEES/LEGS

On what seems to be becoming a human biology lesson, today Jim’s anatomy influenced themes prompt us to focus on limbs and joints. We can do that!

Lots and lots of songs about arms came to mind straight away. We all love being in the arms of someone we love – and it seems a very popular theme in love songs.

However I have decided to choose a song that mentions LEGS. It’s a song that makes me smile. I used to see one of the members of the band I am featuring today all the time. I think we were living near to each other. I had to resist the urge to start singing Right Said Fred songs to him whenever I saw him walking towards me. I have a feeling he would have been a bit miffed if I had.

They had some great tracks, which always bring a smile to your face when you hear them. They lyrics of some of their songs are a bit on the cheeky side. But their tracks are well produced. I loved giving this song a spin again. It starts simply…so you need to listen to at least halfway through to get a feel for what a great track this was.

Deeply dippy bout the curves you’ve got
Deeply hot
Hot for the curves you’ve got
Deeply dippy bout the fun we had
Deeply mad
Mad for the fun we had

Oh… my love
I can’t make head nor tail of passion
Oh…my love
Let’s set sail for the seas of passion now

Deeply dippy bout the way you walk
A contact sport
Let the neighbours talk
Deeply dippy I’m your superman
I’ll explain
You’re my Lois Lane

Oh…my love
I can’t make head nor tail of passion
Oh…my love
Let’s set sail for the seas of passion now

(alright)

(again)
(awh yeh)
(I said)
(hey)

Deeply dippy bout your Spanish eyes
Sierra smile
Legs that go on for miles and miles

(awh see those legs man)

Miles and miles
I said oh…my love
I can’t make head nor tail of passion
Oh..my love
So lets set sail for the seas of passion
Oh…my love
I can’t make head nor tail of passion
Oh..my love
So let’s set sail for the seas of passion

(I’m takin’ a hot tahiti)

Then I Saw Her Face

annieIt has been another great day of music for SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY. A huge variety of songs, artists and genres. I reckon that SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY is the best musical menagerie on WordPress.

I have already mentioned that I accidentally sidelines Jack’s choice for this theme and assigned it to last week’s theme. But Jack has thought of a few more songs. I don’t want to list all of them, but this one is a big favourite. I am sure you know and love it too!

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: CHIN/EARS/EYES/FACE/MOUTH/NOSE

Smiling WomanI was working with a young woman the other day who asked me so many personal questions, I told her I felt like I was being interrogated. Which made her laugh. One of the questions she asked was “Do you have children?” to which I replied that I don’t. Then she asked my age. I told her and she expressed surprise. She said I looked ten years younger because my face is so girly. I replied, “That’s probably because I don’t have any children.” Which made her laugh even more. Anyway, she is now my favourite colleague. Ten years younger hey! You can interrogate me any time honey!

I told Jack and he loved it. He said he loves my face too. It is a round smiley face that does tend to make me look more like a kid than an adult. Not striking. Not perfect. Just a friendly appealing face, with soft features. I like it. Jack says he loves it.

Personally, I think smiling faces are the most beautiful. Jack makes me smile a lot – so I guess that might be why he is taking a shine to my noggin. So to celebrate my rosy round smiling face, here is one of Jack’s song choices, “I’m A Believer” performed by The Monkees – fabulous!

I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me.
Love was out to get me
That’s the way it seemed.
Disappointment haunted all my dreams.

Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I’m in love, I’m a believer!
I couldn’t leave her if I tried.

I thought love was more or less a givin’ thing,
Seems the more I gave the less I got.
What’s the use in tryin’?
All you get is pain.
When I needed sunshine I got rain.

Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I’m in love, I’m a believer!
I couldn’t leave her if I tried.

Love was out to get me
Now, that’s the way it seemed
Disappointment haunted all my dreams

Oh, then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I’m in love, I’m a believer!
I couldn’t leave her if I tried.

Yes, I saw her face, now I’m a believer
And not a trace of doubt in my mind.
Said I’m a believer
I’m a believer
I’m a believer
Said I’m a believer
I’m a believer
I said I’m a believer
I’m a believer

Red Lips And Rosy Cheeks

the loolToday is one of those days when all I want to do is listen to music. Jack wanted to sleep a little longer, so I nipped down to the local supermarket as I had hardly any food in. I am going to do some cooking and bake him a cake this afternoon. We’ll go for a walk when it’s darker outside. Less chance of hassle.

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: CHIN/EARS/EYES/FACE/MOUTH/NOSE

I have a second song choice for today. It’s a gorgeous song. Although it doesn’t mention any of the specific words in Jim’s chosen theme, but it does mention lips and cheeks (specifically red lips and rosy cheeks!) – so I reckon it definitely fits today’s theme which has focused on the human face.

I mentioned a while back that a friend of mine deluged me with Taylor Swift songs when she drove me up to Wales. I’d only ever know that song “Shake It Off” before that journey. Although it was too much for me to listen to the same person for hours (aaaaaaagh!) I have found that some of Taylor Swift’s songs have stuck in my head since then.

lool.jpgI find “fandom” a scary thing. My friend seemed a bit obsessed with Taylor. She calls herself a “Swiftie”. Fans can be so scary. (Jack’s fans – some of them are uber-scary as far as I remember their trolling of me.) But I acknowledged that some of Taylor Swift’s songs were great and I am sure she deserves credit as a very talented lady. In a recent post, I mentioned a performance at an award show where she lit up the stage performing a selection of her songs. Well, she missed this one! It;s called Wildest Dreams and it’s an epic song in it’s own right.

The song in this post is one of the Taylor Swift tracks my friend played to me, on that long journey to Wales, that I really liked. I think it is a stunning track and it is such a pleasure to sing it. I have been singing it to Jack…and he seems to like it a lot! He also seems to like it when I attempt the whole red lips look (my cheeks are always rosy when I am with him anyway).

Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined things would work out this way between Jack and I. Even if it doesn’t last…I hope he remembers me with my red lips and rosy cheeks, standing in a nice dress, staring at the sunset with him.

He said, “Let’s get out of this town
Drive out of the city, away from the crowds”
I thought heaven can’t help me now
Nothing lasts forever, but this is gonna take me down

He’s so tall and handsome as hell
He’s so bad but he does it so well
I can see the end as it begins
My one condition is

Say you’ll remember me
Standing in a nice dress
Staring at the sunset, babe
Red lips and rosy cheeks
Say you’ll see me again
Even if it’s just in your
Wildest dreams, ah-ha oh
Wildest dreams, ah-ha oh

I said, “No one has to know what we do”
His hands are in my hair, his clothes are in my room
And his voice is a familiar sound
Nothing lasts forever but this is getting good now

He’s so tall and handsome as hell
He’s so bad but he does it so well
And when we’ve had our very last kiss
My last request is

Say you’ll remember me
Standing in a nice dress
Staring at the sunset, babe
Red lips and rosy cheeks
Say you’ll see me again
Even if it’s just in your
Wildest dreams, ah-ha oh
Wildest dreams, ah-ha oh

You see me in hindsight
Tangled up with you all night
Burning it down
Someday when you leave me
I bet these memories
Follow you around

You’ll see me in hindsight
Tangled up with you all night
Burning it down
Someday when you leave me
I bet these memories
Follow you around

Say you’ll remember me
Standing in a nice dress
Staring at the sunset, babe
Red lips and rosy cheeks
Say you’ll see me again
Even if it’s just pretend

Say you’ll remember me
Standing in a nice dress
Staring at the sunset, babe
Red lips and rosy cheeks
Say you’ll see me again
Even if it’s just in your (just pretend, just pretend)
Wildest dreams, ah-ha oh
In your wildest dreams, ah-ha oh
(Even if it’s just in your wildest dreams) ah-ha
In your wildest dreams, ah-ha

You Don’t Need That Money With A Face Like That

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: CHIN/EARS/EYES/FACE/MOUTH/NOSE

Well…it turns out that I accidently featured Jack’s song choice for this week’s theme, last week. I had a feeling I had mixed them up. Maybe we didn’t talk about last week’s theme together. I don’t know. Well, that means that today’s theme is all up to me. Yes, thank you Jack, I have been doing this along time all on my own. 😀

band1My song choice is another song I love love love. Listen to the first few bars and that rip-roar sound of the guitar will tell you exactly why! I love the music, more than I love the lyrics. They could be singing about the price of bread for all I care. It is a track that makes me want to get up and swing my hair around and dance like I have ants in my pants.

I really hope you also enjoy the fabulous Jet with their cracking track “Are You Gonna Be My Girl?”

Go!

So 1, 2, 3
Take my hand and come with me
Because you look so fine
And I really wanna make you mine

I say you look so fine
That I really wanna make you mine

4, 5, 6 c’mon and get your kicks
Now you don’t need that money
When you look like that, do you honey

Big black boots
Long brown hair
She’s so sweet
With her get back stare

Well I could see
You home with me
But you were with another man
I know we
Ain’t got much to say
Before I let you get away

I said, are you gonna be my girl?

Well, so 1, 2, 3, take my hand and come with me
Because you look so fine
And I really wanna make you mine

I say you look so fine
That I really wanna make you mine

Oh, 4, 5, 6 c’mon and get your kicks
Now you don’t need that money
With a face like that, do you

Big black boots
Long brown hair
She’s so sweet
With her get back stare

Well I could see
You home with me
But you were with another man
I know we
Ain’t got much to say
Before I let you get away

I said, are you gonna be my girl?

C’mon!

I could see
You home with me
But you were with another man
I know we
Ain’t got much to say
Before I let you get away

Uh, be my girl
Be my girl
Are you gonna be my girl?!

I Can’t Help Myself

Child, Eating, Cake, Yummy, CherryAs someone who loves broccoli and loves cheese (despite my dairy intolerance) I am contemplating trying to wangle myself an invite over to Jim’s house for dinner. Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of both “Green Cheese” and also A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme:

BOUNTY/DESSERT/EAT/FEAST/FOOD/HUNGRY/TURKEY

Well…is it it just me, or do you feel hungry after today’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY choices?

I thought of a second song to add to the banquet of songs we have had today. It certainly fits into the “dessert” category.

When I was a child, we always expected some kind of pudding after lunch and dinner. That was usually some fruit or a biscuit or a fruity yoghurt. On a Sunday, it would be a real treat though, trifle or gateaux. Yum! We always left the dinner table on a sweet note. We were told we had to finish our main meal if we wanted some dessert.

shall iBut as an adult, desserts are a no-no in general. Although I always enjoy them on special occasions or when I am a guest at someone else’s dinner party.

I do love making desserts for other people though! I have a very sweet tooth, and I have to stay away from them because…”ONCE ON THE LIPS, FOREVER ON THE HIPS!”

Anyway…I love all desserts. I don’t think I ever tried a dessert I didn’t like! This song captures exactly how I feel towards puddings. It it of course The Four Tops, I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)

Be good! Be grateful! Eat your greens.

Always save room for dessert!!!

Ooh, sugar pie, honey bunch
You know that I love you
I can’t help myself
I love you and nobody else

In and out my life (In and out my life)
You come and you go (You come and you go)
Leaving just your picture behind (Ooh)
And I’ve kissed it a thousand times (Ooh)

When you snap your finger or wink your eye
I come a-running to you
I’m tied to your apron strings
And there’s nothing that I can do, ooh

I can’t help myself
No, I can’t help myself

‘Cause sugar pie, honey bunch (Sugar pie, honey bunch)
I’m weaker than a man should be
I can’t help myself
I’m a fool in love, you see

Wanna tell you I don’t love you
Tell you that we’re through and I try
But every time I see your face (Can’t help myself)
I get all choked up inside

When I call your name
Girl, it starts to flame (Burning in my heart, tearing it all apart)
No matter how I try
My love I cannot hide

‘Cause sugar pie, honey bunch (Sugar pie, honey bunch)
You know that I’m waiting for you (Waiting for you)
I can’t help myself
I love you and nobody else, ooh

Sugar pie, honey bunch (Sugar pie, honey bunch)
I’d do anything you ask me to (Ask me to)
I can’t help myself
I want you and nobody else, ooh

Sugar pie, honey bunch (Sugar pie, honey bunch)
You know that I love you (Love you)
I can’t help myself
No, I can’t help myself, ooh

Sugar pie, honey bunch (Sugar pie, honey bunch)
You know that I love you

This Feelin’ That Won’t Subside

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:

BOUNTY/DESSERT/EAT/FEAST/FOOD/HUNGRY/TURKEY

roastI will be interested to see if anyone features any songs about a turkey today.

Jack has confused me. We looked at Jim’s themes a while ago and he made a bunch of suggestions. I have a habit of starting posts with the video and lyrics and then finishing the post later when I have time. But when I looked through my drafts folder it was really hard to match which song was for which week’s theme.

dinner chat.jpgThe song that I am featuring today might possibly have been Jack’s choice for next week’s theme. But I can’t find anything in my drafts folder that links with today’s theme. So as this song definitely mentions “HUNGRY” throughout the chorus…we are gonna roll with it.

Like many others, it instantly makes me think of the film “Dirty Dancing” – (“I carried a watermelon”!), but it also brings back another memory. Jack went through a phase of singing this song all the time, but especially at dinner parties. People loved it. We’d all be sitting around the dinner table…and he would start:

I’ve got this feelin’ that won’t subside
I look at you and I fantasize
You’re mine tonight
Now I’ve got you in my sights

With these hungry eyes
One look at you and I can’t disguise
I’ve got hungry eyes
I feel the magic between you and I

Love him! Did I mention that lately? Now, I just need him to go through my drafts folder with me and tell me which song is for which week’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY theme.

I’ve been meaning to tell you
I’ve got this feelin’ that won’t subside
I look at you and I fantasize
You’re mine tonight
Now I’ve got you in my sights

With these hungry eyes
One look at you and I can’t disguise
I’ve got hungry eyes
I feel the magic between you and I

I wanna hold you so hear me out
I wanna show you what love’s all about
Darlin’ tonight
Now I’ve got you in my sights

With these hungry eyes
One look at you and I can’t disguise
I’ve got hungry eyes
I feel the magic between you and I

Now I’ve got you in my sights
With these hungry eyes
Now did I take you by surprise
I need you to see
This love was meant to be

With these hungry eyes
One look at you and I can’t disguise
I’ve got hungry eyes
I feel the magic between you and I

Now I’ve got you in my sights
With these hungry eyes
Now did i take you by surprise
I need you to see
This love was meant to be.

I got Hungry Eyes
