Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 7/16/17

I was just thinking that I never could have imagined the kind of success SLS would become when I first started it.  I only wanted to share my love of music and hopefully have a few people do the same thing.  I couldn’t be more grateful for the followers and participators SLS has each week.  I’ve listened to some amazing music in the past few years and I only hope it will continue for many more.

The other thing I love about sharing this with you guys is that sometimes you help me out.  I didn’t have to worry about the theme this week because I was given a theme by Thoughts, Songs, Words with Meaning.  Thanks for helping out this week!

So, without further meandering, our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is to post a duet.  

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

Feel free to use the Song Lyric Sunday badge by copying it into your post or add it to your site to show you are participating.

  8. To be honest, I can’t decide which song to post, because I immediately thought of two. One is lighthearted and fun from a musical, the other is a bit more sad, but seems to have more relevance in my life right now. I think I will go with lighthearted. So here is “Loathing” from the musical “Wicked”
    Written by Karen Ann Poole, Paul John Harris, Ian Kenneth Masterson from Metro Lyrics

    (Galinda, spoken) Dearest, darlingest momsie and popsicle…
    (Elphaba, spoken) My dear father…
    (Both) There’s been some confusion over rooming here at Shiz.
    (Elphaba) But of course I’ll care for Nessa.
    (Galinda) But of course, I’ll rise above it.
    (Both) For I know that’s how you’d want me to respond, Yes. There’s been some confusion, for you see my roommate is…
    (Galinda) Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe…
    (Elphaba) Blonde.

    (Galinda) What is this feeling, so sudden and new?
    (Elphaba) I felt the moment I laid eyes on you.

    (Galinda) My pulse is rushing.
    (Elphaba) My head is reeling
    (Galinda, spoken) My face is flushing.
    (Both) What is this feeling? Fervid as a flame, does it have a name? Yes… Yes
    Loathing! Unadulterated loathing!
    (Galinda, spoken) For your face,
    (Elphaba, spoken) Your voice,
    (Galinda) Your clothing!
    (Both) Let’s just say- I loathe it all!
    Every little trait how ever small,
    Makes my very flesh begin to crawl
    With simple utter loathing!
    There’s a strange exhilaration.
    In such total detestation. It’s so pure, so strong! ( so strong)
    Though I do admit, it came on fast,
    Still I do believe that it can last.
    And I will be loathing, loathing you my whole life long.

    (Ensemble) Dear Galinda, you are just too good!
    How do you stand her, I don’t think I could.
    She’s a terror, she’s a tartar,
    We don’t mean to show a bias
    But Galinda, you’re a martyr!
    (Galinda) Well, these things are sent to try us…
    (Ensemble) Poor Galinda, forced to reside
    With someone so disgusticified,
    We just want to tell you, we’re all on your side!

    (Ensemble, background) We share your loathing, unadulterated loathing,
    (Both)What is this feeling, so sudden and new?
    (Ensemble, background) For her face, her voice, her clothing,
    (Both)I felt the moment I laid eyes on you.
    My pulse is rushing, my head is reeling.
    (Ensemble, background) Let’s just say-we loathe it all!
    (Both) Oh, what is this feeling?!
    (Ensemble, background) Ev’ry little trait, however small,
    (Both) Does it have a name?
    (Ensemble) Makes our very flesh begin to crawl,
    (Together) Ahhhhh… loathing!

    (Both)There’s a strange exhilaration, (loathing!)
    In such total detestation, (Loathing!)
    It’s so pure, so strong! (So strong!)
    Though I do admit, it came on fast, still I do believe that it can last!
    And I will be loathing for forever,(Loathing…)
    Loathing, truly deeply (Loathing…)
    Loathing you, (Loathing you….)
    My whole life long!

    (Ensemble) Loathing, unadulterated loathing!
    (Elphaba) Boo!
    (Galinda) Ah!
