Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 4/2/17

Can you believe it’s April already?  I can’t.  I feel like March came and went in a flurry of hospitals, work and care-giving.  My fiance is still pretty deep in the recovery process, but things are slowly progressing, even with the set-backs.

I was thinking of a theme all week, but then today I realized that it was a pretty somber theme and I really just wanted to lighten things up.  I can get down with some depressing music with the best of them, but I’m thinking this week is for hope and looking forward.

And when I say looking forward, I think the best way to do that is to look back (that doesn’t make any sense at all, but I’m sure you’ll forgive me when I finally reveal the theme for this week).

Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song from the 80’s. 

A little side-note here to let you all know that there isn’t a whole lot of 80’s music that I like or even listen to.  Much of that is because it brings back emotional memories that make it hard to listen to it, but I’m hoping this time will be different and I can find some good 80’s music to embrace and listen to.  So, I’m counting on you guys!

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

  1. Isn’t it what music is really all about, how it can mean one thing and bring back so many bad memories for one, but the next person is truly inspired by a decade like the 80s? I am so into this week’s prompt, but I think it says something about the excellent host for SLS you are by your willingness to explore this, even with all the bad memories it carries for you.

  6. Ah, the 80s. I really didn’t get to listen to all the 80s had to offer until I met my husband. He encouraged me to listen to the music as well as the words, and after that I fell in love with a lot of music that I had never really given a chance. I ended up choosing a song I have loved for a long time, and I love the fact that both of my kids love this song too. So, here’s Journey’s “Dont Stop Believing,” released in 1981 on their Escape album.
    Written by Steve Perry, Jonathan Cain, Neal Schon- lyrics from A to Z Lyrics…/journey/dont-stop-believin…/USSM20300…

    Just a small town girl
    Livin’ in a lonely world
    She took the midnight train
    Goin’ anywhere
    Just a city boy
    Born and raised in South Detroit
    He took the midnight train
    Goin’ anywhere

    A singer in a smokey room
    The smell of wine and cheap perfume
    For a smile they can share the night
    It goes on and on, and on, and on

    Strangers waiting
    Up and down the boulevard
    Their shadows searching
    In the night
    Streetlight people
    Livin’ just to find emotion
    Hidin’ somewhere in the night

    Workin’ hard to get my fill
    Everybody wants a thrill
    Payin’ anything to roll the dice
    Just one more time
    Some will win
    Some will lose
    Some were born to sing the blues
    Oh, the movie never ends
    It goes on and on, and on, and on

    Strangers waiting
    Up and down the boulevard
    Their shadows searching
    In the night
    Streetlight people
    Livin’ just to find emotion
    Hidin’ somewhere in the night

    [Instrumental interlude]

    Don’t stop believin’
    Hold on to that feelin’
    Streetlight people
    Don’t stop believin’
    Hold on
    Streetlight people
    Don’t stop believin’
    Hold on to that feelin’
    Streetlight people
