Good morning blogging world! I hope that whatever you’ve got planned for today, you have fun! As always, I am kicking off today with Song Lyric Sunday, brought to us by the lovely Jim Adams, it’s a chance for us all to discover new music and new blogging friends so I do hope that you’ll play along. The prompt for this week gives us a massive amount of scope as it’s Dawn/Noon/Dusk/Midnight/Nocturnal/Diurnal.

If you’d like to play along, here are some rules for you:

  • Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not.
  • Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due.
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and if you desire you can provide a link to where you found the lyrics.
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song.
  • Ping back to this post will eventually work, as long as you are being patient, but you can also place your link in the comments if you don’t like to wait.
  • Read at least one other person’s blog, so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process.
  • Feel free to suggest future prompts.
  • Have fun and enjoy the music.

My choice for this week isn’t exactly on point but if someone is saying ‘goodnight’ it has to be dark and possibly around midnight right? Anyway, I love it and it has the best saxophone solo ever so I do hope that you’ll enjoy it!

You drink your coffee,
I sip my tea,
And we’re sitting here, playing so cool,
Thinking, ‘What will be, will be.’
And it’s getting kind of late now,
Oh, I wonder if you’ll stay now,
Stay now, stay now, stay now,
Or will you just politely say ‘Goodnight’?
I move a little closer to you,
Not knowing quite what to do and I’m
Feeling all fingers and thumbs,
I spill my tea, oh silly me,
It’s getting kind of late now,
I wonder if you’ll stay now,
Stay now, stay now, stay now,
Or will you just politely say ‘Goodnight’?
And then we touch, much too much,
This moment has been waiting for a long, long time,
Makes me shiver,
Makes me quiver,
This moment I am so unsure,
This moment I have waited for,
Well is it something you’ve been waiting for,
Waiting for too?
Take off your eyes,
Bare your soul,
Gather me to you and make me whole,
Tell me your secrets,
Sing me the song,
Sing it to me in the silent tongue.
It’s getting kind of late now,
I wonder if you’ll stay now,
Stay now, stay now, stay now,
Or will you just politely say ‘Goodnight’?

If you’re of a certain age, you’ll remember the film that this song came from – it was called Breaking Glass and it was a huge hit in 1980. This was the age of punk and the film was a story of rebellion against the norm and anger against the establishment but it was also a love story and a rather poignant one at that. As I’ve been writing this I’ve been watching little clips from the film and now I think I’m going to have to track it down on Netflix!
I do hope that you enjoy the track and that you have a great Sunday :O)

The prompt for this week is Animals; I don’t know if my choice will qualify as Mosquitoes are insects and not animals but this is their song and I love it:

I know, I know the sun is hot
Mosquitos come suck your blood
Leave you there all alone
Just skin and bone
When you walk among the trees
Listening to the leaves
The further I go the less I know
The less I know

Where will you run?
Where will you hide?
Lullabies
To paralyze

Fat and soft, pink and weak
Foot and thigh, tongue and cheek
You know I’m told they swallow you whole
Skin and bone
Cutting boards and hanging hooks
Bloody knives, cooking books
Promising you won’t feel a thing
At all

Swallow and chew
Eat you alive
All of us food that hasn’t died
And the light says

Somehow they pick and pluck
Tenderize bone to dust
The sweetest grease, finest meat you’ll ever taste
Taste, taste
So you scream, whine, and yell
Supple sounds of dinner bells
We all will feed the worms and trees So don’t be shy

Swallow and chew
Eat you alive
All of us food that hasn’t died

The Queens of the Stone Age are well known for their uncompromising heavy rock style and the profanity that’s often found in their lyrics but this is soft and slow and, in my opinion, quite beautiful, despite the subject matter.

The song begins slowly and languorously and you could easily imagine yourself sitting out on a sticky, humid night in the bayou. It then progresses to an instrumental section with piano, violin and soft drum beats that invite you to sway and get lost in the music. The tune is then picked up by a steel guitar and the beat becomes more insistent but never a true ‘rock’ beat. The lyrics are sung softly and, on occasion, whispered intimately; this is far from a love song but, for some reason it feels like one.

Have a super Sunday one and all
