Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 1/29/17

As you know, I love music a lot, and I’m so happy I started this blog prompt because there have been times (this week for instance) it was the only thing that brought me to my blog.  I honestly love everyone’s contributions each week and am so excited I stuck with it.

This week was pretty gloomy.  There was one point where the sun peaked out of the clouds for a few minutes and I sat and felt the little bit of heat and the light and thought my heart would burst.  It didn’t last long, but those few moments sure were nice.  Today was the first day in a while where the sun stayed out all day.  It was pretty damn cold, but I honestly needed the sun, so I didn’t complain too much about the cold that came with it.

I’m sure you’re wondering what all that has to do with our prompt, but as I’m sure you’re maybe guessing, it has everything to do with it.  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to celebrate the sun.  You can interpret it any way you’d like through music, meaning you can even post a song that only has the word “sun” in it, or really any other way you can fathom.

Easy?  Well, I hope so,  But, 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

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

    • We haven’t run across any copyright issues. We make sure to post the authors and where we found the lyrics. I’ve been hosting almost two years and haven’t had any issues.

      I love “Black Hole Sun” but I’ll have to check out the other. Thank you!


      • I can understand that for sure, but not experiencing something doesn’t mean it’s not happening. Blog owners get sued all the time for copyright infringement.

        All my blogs belong to registered LLCs, so I’m more of a target for a lawsuit than someone just running a personal blog for the fun of it.

        And you’re welcome! Haven’t heard the song in years.

  1. My first thought was for “Here Comes the Sun,” one of my favorite Beatles songs. But with the political climate (no pun) I wasn’t feeling it. So I’m suggesting an oldie, by Ray Charles, “That Lucky Old Sun,”

  8. When I read the prompt to my family they immediately started spouting off songs. “Here Comes the Sun,” by the Beatles, “Carry on my Wayward Son,” by Kansas, then they started talking about Icarus and songs about him. (There are quite a few.) We finally settled on “The House of the Rising Sun,” as covered by Five Finger Death Punch. This song has a long history and no real authorship to speak of, at least no one can say definitively who originally wrote it. Bob Dylan and the Animals have both done covers, but we kind of like this one. The first part of the video is another song called “You.” there is some language in it, but you can fast forward it if you want.

    Written by Alan Price lyric from Metro Lyrics

    There is a house in Sin City
    They call the Rising Sun
    And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy
    And God, I know I’m one

    My mother was a tailor
    She sewed my new blue jeans
    My father was a gamblin’ man
    Down in Sin City

    Now the only thing a gambler needs
    Is a suitcase and a trunk
    And the only time he’s satisfied
    Is when he’s on a drunk

    Well, I’ve got one foot on the platform
    The other’s on the train
    I’m goin’ back to Sin City
    To wear that ball and chain

    Well, mother, tell your children
    Never do what I have done
    Spend your lives in sin and misery
    In the house of the rising sun

    In the house of the rising sun

    Well, there is a house in Sin City
    They call the Rising Sun
    And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy
    And God, knows I, I’m one

    • I love the straight up grunge in this song… it seems to match the words and the images that the words bring. It’s always fun to hear a remake that you like just as much as the original. But, honestly, I love this song so much, I’m not sure I would hate it no matter who sang it. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
