Song Lyric Sunday – Party In Your Bedroom by Cash Cash

This was the very first song I thought of when I was thinking of a song to post for the theme.  I don’t know what it is about this band… now that I listened to it again, I’m realizing that this song is cheesy as hell, but honestly, they still just make me smile.

This is another one of those bands that Adelle and I heard when I was taking her to Warped Tour every year.  In our defense, the first time we heard them live, we pretty much laughed at them and mocked them while standing at the very back of the crowd.  However, Adelle kept listening to them, which in turn meant I kept listening to them, and before I knew it, they were all I was listening to.  They accompanied me on many trips to my sister’s house, and now they are simply nostalgia for me.

So, given that this is a party theme and we all love those parties in our bedrooms late at night, I will let you just sit and enjoy this one for what it is.

Happy partying!

There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a lot of talk about you
Cause there’s a party in your bedroom all night long
Pretty girl it’s a show, let it go when you’re alone
There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a lot of talk about you
Cause there’s a party in your bedroom all night long
Pretty girl it’s a show, let it go when you’re alone
Lips sealed tight, don’t say goodnight
Walkin’ down the street, keepin’ hush, hush on the scene
No one knows you, such a mystery
Opposite of fun ’til you turn the power on
Then you come out turnin’ up the heat
Upstairs all alone, one click for a show
Your roof is on fire, you’re losing control
There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a lot of talk about you
Cause there’s a party in your bedroom all night long
Pretty girl it’s a show, let it go when you’re alone
Lips sealed tight don’t say goodnight
Dancing with your hands turning strangers into friends
Touch the keys please and unlock my heart
You’re free to be a freak, change your picture every week
Show the camera you’re a super star
Upstairs all alone, one click for a show
Your roof is on fire, you’re losing control
There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a lot of talk about you
Cause there’s a party in your bedroom all night long
Pretty girl it’s a show, let it go when you’re alone
There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a lot of talk about you
Cause there’s a party in your bedroom all night long
Pretty girl it’s a show, let it go when you’re alone
Lips sealed tight don’t say goodnight
It’s no debate, when I think of you can’t stay on track
Cause I can’t wait, can’t stay on track, can’t hide the fact
You’re all I want, you’re all I need
Let’s get this party started, kick it hard just you and me
There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a lot of talk about you
Cause there’s a party in your bedroom all night long
Pretty girl it’s a show, let it go when you’re alone
There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a lot of talk about you
Cause there’s a party in your bedroom all night long
Pretty girl it’s a show, let it go when you’re alone
Lips sealed tight don’t say goodnight

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/29/17

This week, the lyric Simply Marquessa chose was: “Girl, you better have your hair weave strapped on tight…” It comes from the song, Chunky by Bruno Mars.  When I read the lyrics to the whole song, it helped me come up with the theme for this week.  It seems like we slowed things down a bit last week, but for this week we are heading to the opposite side of the spectrum.

I haven’t had much cause to celebrate lately, but I’m thinking that sometimes you just need to find a reason.  It doesn’t do anyone any good to constantly live life in fight-or-flight mode, just waiting for the next awful thing.  For my birthday at the beginning of the month, I was able to plan an impromptu get-together with my family. Honestly, it’s been the one fun thing that’s happened this month.  I’m happy we were able to do it and that it gave me some happy memories to help keep me going.

I think we all need a reason to party, so hopefully the theme this week will give you one.  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “parties/partying”.  

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

Song Lyric Sunday – Let It Be from Across the Universe

I thought of this song right away, but then I started looking for “something better” and to be honest, less obvious.  But, nothing spoke to me like this one did, so I decided to go with my first choice.

I also chose to go with the version from “Across the Universe”.  It is such a profound version of the song and Carol Woods is simply breathtaking.

I’ve learned throughout my life that you don’t always have to fight back.  Even if you think you’re right and the other person is wrong, sometimes walking away and letting it be is the answer.  I find myself wondering, is it really worth a fight?  I know there’s a great quote floating around out there… would you rather be right or would you rather be happy… and it seems to fit this song and the narrative of today’s climate.

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for peace.

I hope you enjoy this version of the song, especially if you’ve never seen it.

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Oh, let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be
For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be
Oh, let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
And there will be an answer, let it be
Oh, let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
Oh, let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be
I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Oh, let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
There will be an answer, let it be
Oh, let it be
Won’t you let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/22/17

This week, the lyric Simply Marquessa chose was: “When we’re together, we never fight, we’ve got better things to do tonight…” I actually came up with the themes for these a while ago, and when I first looked at the theme I chose, I couldn’t quite figure out why I chose it.  When I first read the lyric prompt and the song it came from (She Wants To Dance With Me by Rick Astley), I realized that we had already covered dance, so I had to get creative with this one as well.

I really love the theme I chose this week and I think many of you will like it as well.  I need a little bit of it in my life right now.  I’ve been through a series of doctor appointments and medical procedures and I’m quite ready for some answers.  Barring that, I’m just hoping for a break from doctors for a while, and I’m truly hoping that’s in my foreseeable future.

Anyway, I’ll get right to it so we can all bask in the glow.  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “peace”.  

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!

Song Lyric Sunday – Superman (It’s Not Easy) by Five for Fighting

I found myself on the internet looking at lists of songs because this particular theme was a hard one for me. While I was scrolling, I actually remembered this song and went to check it out. I do love this song quite a lot and when I first heard it, I thought it was genius and I felt real empathy for poor Superman. But today, it struck me as funny and also rather fitting for this theme in a backhanded sort of way.

I mean, he’s Superman! How hard could it really be? It also struck me that Superman might be a little full of himself here… “it’s not easy to be me” and “You can all sleep sound tonight.” I guess it’s easy to be full of yourself when you’re Superman. Honestly, who wouldn’t be?

Sure, he has his issues (kryptonite), but come on! The only people who complain about “men weren’t meant to ride with clouds between their knees” are the ones who actually get to do it! So, yeah, the angst is a little lost on me because he sort of has it all (“I’m more than some pretty face beside a train”). Did I mention flying?? Just saying…

 I do hope you enjoy the song!
I can’t stand to fly
I’m not that naive
I’m just out to find
The better part of me
I’m more than a bird, I’m more than a plane
I’m more than some pretty face beside a train
And it’s not easy to be me
Wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home I’ll never see
It may sound absurd, but don’t be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed, but won’t you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream
And it’s not easy to be me
Up, up and away, away from me
Well, it’s all right, you can all sleep sound tonight
I’m not crazy
Or anything
I can’t stand to fly
I’m not that naive
Men weren’t meant to ride
With clouds between their knees
I’m only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me
Inside of me
Inside me
Inside me
Inside of me
I’m only a man
In a funny red sheet
I’m only a man
Looking for a dream
I’m only a man
In a funny red sheet
And it’s not easy
It’s not easy to be
Me
