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

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.

  11. Seeing how it is almost Halloween, I chose a family favorite “party” song. “Dead man’s party,” by Oingo Boingo. I had no idea that Danny Elfman was the lead vocalist and writer for this group, and in a way, knowing this makes me like the band even more. I hope you enjoy.
    Written by Danny Elfman

    I’m all dressed up with nowhere to go
    Walkin’ with a dead man over my shoulder

    Waiting for an invitation to arrive
    Goin’ to a party where no one’s still alive

    I was struck by lighting
    Walkin’ down the street
    I was hit by something last night in my sleep
    It’s a dead man’s party
    Who could ask for more
    Everybody’s comin’, leave your body at the door
    Leave your body and soul at the door . . .
    (Don’t run away it’s only me)

    All dressed up with nowhere to go
    Walkin’ with a dead man
    Waitin’ for an invitation to arrive
    With a dead man . . . Dead Man . . .

    Got my best suit and my tie
    Shiny silver dollar on either eye
    I hear the chauffeur comin’ to the door
    Says there’s room for maybe just one more . . .

    I was struck by lighting
    Walkin’ down the street
    I was hit by something last night in my sleep
    It’s a dead man’s party
    Who could ask for more
    Everybody’s comin’, leave your body at the door
    Leave your body and soul at the door . . .
    (Don’t run away it’s only me)

    Don’t run away it’s only me
    Don’t be afraid of what you can’t see
    Don’t run away it’s only me . . .
