Guest Host

I am so grateful to Jim and to the others who offered to step in while I take a much-needed break. I am going to reblog his theme post, but please go to his site next week and until further notice for your SLS themes. I know others have offered, but Jim was the first one to offer and put up a post. Hopefully Jim will reach out if he needs more help going forward.

Thank you again for all the love, everyone. It is truly appreciated!

A Unique Title For Me

I am honored to take over as the guest host for SLS Helen Vahdati’s This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time Song Lyric Sunday, while she is recovering. It is late, so let’s get to the prompt which is “doctor/health/medicine”.  I am not sure how this will work, but if you create a pingback to this post, I will read your blog.  Feel free to suggest future prompts.

Goodbye for Now

Good morning and Happy Sunday everyone. I know many of you will be expecting to see an SLS theme post, and  I do apologize that this post didn’t go up a few days ago. That was the original plan, but as with everything to do with my blog lately, things just aren’t going as planned.

As many of you know, I’ve been struggling with some health issues for a few months now. All my tests keep coming up normal, so no one can really tell me why I’m having these symptoms, but they are truly affecting everything in my life. I still have a few more things to look into, but I’m not very hopeful that anything at all will be found, so I’m left thinking that perhaps this all has to do with stress. I have a very stressful day job and it makes any stress in my personal life that much more difficult to take on.

When I first started this blog, my day job was boring as hell, so it left me with time to write and enjoy this wonderful blogging experience. I never could have imagined how much my weekly SLS post would take off. I do thank all of you for making each Sunday so wonderful for so many years. This decision has not been an easy one.

I’ve decided to take a hiatus from my blog. When I first started it, my intention was to have it help me write every day and to put my name out there. I don’t think it’s serving that purpose right this moment, and I truly need any free (or in my case “well”) time to be spent writing. My blog right now, while a very good tool, is just a distraction and I need to figure out what I’m going to do with it in the future.

Thank you again, to all my amazing followers, especially those of you who have followed SLS every Sunday. I will truly miss our weekly song share, and I do hope there is something similar out there that you can all find to share your love of music. Perhaps one of my followers has more free time and can take on that project. I’m just unable to sustain it any longer.

I will miss you all and I’m so sorry this is the end of something that has been truly great. I hope you all understand that I feel its best for me and my life right now.

I wish you all the best and I hope to see you all very soon!

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 12/30/18

Guys, I apologize for the lateness of the post. I’m still struggling with my health and I ended up getting sick this afternoon and completely spaced the theme post and that it was even Saturday! Luckily, I remembered in the nick of time (at least in my neck of the woods).

I’m not going to spend any more time rambling on about things, so let’s just get right to it. Let’s put on our thinking caps, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is new.

As always, you can go your own way and post a song that has nothing to do with the prompt.  We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!

If you would like to suggest a theme, I am open to suggestions.   Please either pop it in the comments or send me an email at helenvahdati@yahoo.com.

Here are the “rules”:

  • 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 and it’s honestly just a simple Google search
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and 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 or my own Song Lyric Sunday post
  • 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

Song Lyric Sunday – It’s Christmas Day by Family Force 5

I went through a time when I really didn’t want to listen to mainstream Christmas music. I even tried to convince myself that I didn’t like it, but I realized this year that I actually love so much of it. There are songs that I don’t like, for sure, but for the most part, it’s all just part of the season.

My daughter introduced me to Family Force 5 and I was excited when they put out a Christmas album, although somewhat reluctant. It was actually better than I thought it would be. The year the album came out, I bought VIP tickets for me and my daughter and we saw them live in concert the first part of December. We got to meet the band and I even have a picture to show for it!

This album was the only Christmas music I listened to for at least two years in a row. I still love it, even though I haven’t listened to it in a while. I’m happy that this song fit the theme today and that I get to share it with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all!

I woke up this morning
And I stumbled out of my bed
Dreams from the night before
ring inside of my head
Ran down the stairs when I remembered
It’s Christmas day
Christmas day

Everyone is right here at home
Sing all those songs we all know
This is the season for love
It’s Christmas day

A day like any other day
Where even the coldest of hearts will pray
For peace on earth and good will to all men
We all can remember the greatest
The greatest gift of all

It’s Christmas day

I saw all the presents
wrapped underneath the tree
Now I’m surrounded by my family
Oh, I can hardly believe
That it’s Christmas day

Children singing
And the jingle bells ringing
Wake up it’s Christmas morn
The day our king was born

Snowflakes are falling
All the times that we’re recalling
We laugh and celebrate
Today is Christmas day

It’s Christmas day
Christmas day

It’s Christmas day
Christmas day

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 12/23/18

My hubby and I decided to celebrate the season by watching sappy holiday movies today. I got so into it that I completely spaced my post today. At least I didn’t forget completely, though, and now I’m here to bring you another round of SLS, albeit a little late.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have a pre-planned theme, so I had to come up with one on the fly. Hopefully it won’t be too difficult for you to come up with with a song; although, you guys never seem to let me down. You always seem to come up with something no matter what the theme is.

With that short little intro, we’ll just get right to it. Let’s put on our thinking caps, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is season.

As always, you can go your own way and post a song that has nothing to do with the prompt.  We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!

If you would like to suggest a theme, I am open to suggestions.   Please either pop it in the comments or send me an email at helenvahdati@yahoo.com.

Song Lyric Sunday – Love Like Woe by The Ready Set

Sometimes I feel like some of my music tastes are stuck in 2010, back when my daughter was introducing me to all her favorite music and we were going to concerts all the time. I suppose that’s not as bad as some of you all (1960’s and such), but I do try to find new music. I’m just not very good at it… or I just don’t spend enough time looking for it. Lately, I’ve been listening to a lot of my son’s music (hip-hop), which is not my scene at all. I think he tries to play songs he think I might like, and some haven’t been too bad, but for the most part I really just don’t get it.

I decided to have some fun today. This song is not deep and I think the only reason I like it is because of how much fun I think it is. I can’t relate to the lyrics at all, really. It reminds me of high school and the games that kids play with each other’s hearts (I swear I have never been this girl!). While that isn’t fun, I’m sure, I do think the song is fun. The video is odd and I’m not sure what’s even going on, but I do feel like getting up and dancing with that room of kids.

I hope you can have some fun with this one, just remember to leave your thinking caps at the door!

Happy Sunday everyone!

Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
(I kinda feel like it don’t make sense)
I’m thinking, baby, you and I are undeniable
But I’m finding our loves unreliable
I’m giving all I got to make you stay
Or am I just a roadblock in your way?
‘Cause you’re a pretty little windstorm out on the boulevard
Something like a Sunset, oh you’re a shooting star
And I might drive myself insane
If those lips aren’t speaking my name
‘Cause I got some intuition,
Or maybe I’m superstitious
But I think you’re a pretty sweet pill that I’m swallowing down
To counter this addiction, you’ve got me on a mission
Tell me darling, can I get a break somehow?
(How) could I say no?
She’s got a love like woe
Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh,
Girls got a love like woe
I kinda feel like it don’t make sense
Because you’re bringing me in and now you’re kicking me out again
Love so strong, then you moved on
Now I’m hung up in suspense,
Because you’re bringing me in and then you’re kicking me out again
It’s like a hurricane, speed train, she’s a moving car
Catch her in the fast lane, oh I gotta know,
Can I keep up with her pace?
Kick it into gear when I see that face
You can take up all my time cause you’re the only one
That can make a storm cloud break, pulling out the sun
And I can’t get caught in the rain
Can I get your lips to speak my name?
‘Cause I got some intuition,
Or maybe I’m superstitious
But I think you’re a pretty sweet pill that I’m swallowing down
To counter this addiction, you’ve got me on a mission
Tell me darling, can I get a break somehow?
(How) could I say no?
She’s got a love like woe
Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh,
Girls got a love like woe
I kinda feel like it don’t make sense
Because you’re bringing me in and now you’re kicking me out again
Love so strong, then you moved on
Now I’m hung up in suspense,
Because you’re bringing me in and then you’re kicking me out again
‘Cause we only have one life
The timing and the moment,
All seem so right
So would you say you’re mine? (We’ll be just fine)
Would you say you’re mine? (We’ll be just fine)
She’s got a love like woe
Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh,
Girls got a love like woe (la-da-da)
I kinda feel like it don’t make sense
Because you’re bringing me in and now you’re kicking me out again
Love so strong, then you moved on
Now I’m hung up in suspense,
Because you’re bringing me in and then you’re kicking me out again
She’s got a love like woe
Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh,
Girls got a love like woe (la-da-da)
I kinda feel like it don’t make sense
Because you’re bringing me in and now you’re kicking me out again
Love so strong, then you moved on
Now I’m hung up in suspense,
Because you’re bringing me in and then you’re kicking me out again

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 12/16/18

I made a vow last year that this year I would be much more jolly, and you know what? Despite being sick and everything else going on right now, I’m actually doing it. We spent most of the day Christmas shopping and I’m all done except for my co-workers. I have no idea what to do for them, but I’m going to come up with something that isn’t food related. We still have a week left, and I think we’re all tired of all the extra food in the office.

I did fail at one thing. I was planning to bake, and it’s just not going to happen this year. I can’t even imagine standing in the kitchen for hours right now. Hopefully, next year I’ll be able to add that to my list of merry-making.

Anyway, let’s just get right to it, since you should already know what the theme is. Let’s put on our thinking caps, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is girls.

As always, you can go your own way and post a song that has nothing to do with the prompt.  We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!
