Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/1/17

This week, the lyric Simply Marquessa chose was:“I would get down on my knees, I would do anything for you.” 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 “I Touch Myself” by The Divinyls. I have to admit that I came up with the themes pretty fast after I knew what Marquessa’s song choices were and this one seems a bit off, but I also think it is an interesting one.

I suppose I jumped at the very first line in the song, “I love myself”, but the song is more about obsession than anything else.  Either way, I’ve come up with the theme and I believe it’s a good choice and can go in many different directions, so I hope you enjoy the song-hunting journey.

Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “self love”.  

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

  6. So I decided to go a bit on my own, but I am going to try to tie it into the theme. Every October my family and I read “A Night in the Lonesome October” by Roger Zelazny. This is something we have done since my husband and I got married, and today marks the twentieth time we have started this book as a family. So I am sharing “This is Halloween,” from “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” The song is the only one I could think of that mirrors the theme of the book, and by continuing a tradition we, as a family, are showering ourselves with love. Hope you enjoy the song.

    Boys and girls of every age
    Wouldn’t you like to see something strange?
    Come with us and you will see
    This, our town of Halloween
    This is Halloween, this is Halloween
    Pumpkins scream in the dead of night
    This is Halloween, everybody make a scene
    Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright
    It’s our town, everybody scream
    In this town of Halloween
    I am the one hiding under your bed
    Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red
    I am the one hiding under your stairs
    Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair
    This is Halloween, this is Halloween
    Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
    In this town we call home
    Everyone hail to the pumpkin song
    In this town, don’t we love it now?
    Everybody’s waiting for the next surprise
    ‘Round that corner, man hiding in the trash can
    Something’s waiting no to pounce, and how you’ll
    Scream! This is Halloween
    Red ‘n’ black, and slimy green
    Aren’t you scared?
    Well, that’s just fine
    Say it once, say it twice
    Take a chance and roll the dice
    Ride with the moon in the dead of night
    Everybody scream, everybody scream
    In our town of Halloween!
    I am the clown with the tear-away face
    Here in a flash and gone without a trace
    I am the “who” when you call, “Who’s there?”
    I am the wind blowing through your hair
    I am the shadow on the moon at night
    Filling your dreams to the brim with fright
    This is Halloween, this is Halloween
    Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
    Halloween! Halloween!
    Tender lumplings everywhere
    Life’s no fun without a good scare
    That’s our job, but we’re not mean
    In our town of Halloween
    In this town
    Don’t we love it now?
    Everybody’s waiting for the next surprise
    Skeleton Jack might catch you in the back
    And scream like a banshee
    Make you jump out of your skin
    This is Halloween, everybody scream
    Won’t ya please make way for a very special guy
    Our man Jack is King of the Pumpkin patch
    Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King, now!
    This is Halloween, this is Halloween
    Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
    In this town we call home
    Everyone hail to the pumpkin song
    La la la la la la la la la la (Halloween! Halloween!)
    La la la la la la la la la la (Halloween! Halloween!)
