This week, the lyric Simply Marquessa chose was: “Don’t pick up the phone. You know that he’s only calling because he’s drunk and alone.” However, once again, the theme I chose doesn’t have much to do with that one lyric. The name of the song it comes from is “New Rules” by Dua Lipa. I listened to it for the first time yesterday and really enjoyed the song. More importantly, though, it supplied the theme for this week.
I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of schizophrenic when it comes to rules. If there is a guideline to follow, I’m pretty much a stickler for it unless you give me a good reason to not follow it. So, on one hand, I like rules, but on the other hand, I do believe they aren’t always for the best. I guess what I’m saying is that if there is a rule, follow it, but don’t be afraid to change the rules if they no longer serve the purpose they were intended for. Clear as mud? I thought so.
Anyway, as you may have guessed, our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “rules”.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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
