Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 1/7/18

Whew, it’s the new year!  I almost can’t believe it.  I’ve spent most of the week not really sure if it means anything, or it’s just that cycle of life that keeps on turning and the only reason we have things like days and months and years is because we’ve given meaning to it.  I suppose time has always been tracked in some way, and I think I’d rather that than nothing at all.  I’m not one for random chaos, so I think I’ll embrace the tracking of time in it’s current form.

As much as January feels like new life and hope and twelve brand new months to fill up, it can also feel pretty bleak, especially in the part of the world I live in.  It’s cold and dreary and there’s no days off to break it up.  It can almost feel like you’re losing yourself and it’s sometimes hard to keep it together.  There is also that lack of sunlight that is hard on those of use who suffer from depression.

Which, of course, leads me to the theme reveal for Song Lyric Sunday this week – “madness”.  

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!

I’m teaming up with Simply Marquessa  and her LyricalFictionFriday theme will be based on today’s theme.  Her posts go up on Thursday, so please check out her blog and her blog prompt this Thursday to delve into the world of music and fiction.

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.

  1. Hello again Helen,
    Hope you had great Xmas and new years but you dead right what your saying above! I’ve had a couple of weeks off blogging but I’m back now, I don’t know if you care? But I might join in doing this again but seems I’ve just only post something on my blog, I will wait until tomorrow which here will make it Monday not Sunday! I guess it’s sunday somewhere? BTW I could make a huge playlist or something with the madness theme but I will think about this one way more than I did last year and come up with just one track!
    Cheers 🙂

  3. Reblogged this on Simply Marquessa and commented:
    It’s so so so cold outside. The kind of weekend where it is so cold that everyone is going no where fast. Indoor activities are the order of the day – cuddling up under the covers, relaxing with Netflix and eating lots of comfort foods…It’s also a great time to unwind, listen to some good music and choose your song for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday Reveal: “Madness”.

  13. I had no idea there were so many songs about madness, so I narrowed it down to two, and decided to go with my first and obvious choice. I love Queen, I can actually say they are one of my favorite bands, so without saying anything else, here is “I’m Going Slightly Mad.”
    Writen by Roger Taylor, Freddie Mercury, Brian May, John Deacon from AtoZ Lyrics

    When the outside temperature rises
    And the meaning is oh so clear
    One thousand and one yellow daffodils
    Begin to dance in front of you – oh dear
    Are they trying to tell you something?
    You’re missing that one final screw
    You’re simply not in the pink my dear
    To be honest you haven’t got a clue
    I’m going slightly mad
    I’m going slightly mad
    It finally happened – happened
    It finally happened – ooh oh
    It finally happened – I’m slightly mad
    Oh dear!
    I’m one card short of a full deck
    I’m not quite the shilling
    One wave short of a shipwreck
    I’m not at my usual top billing
    I’m coming down with a fever
    I’m really out to sea
    This kettle is boiling over
    I think I’m a banana tree
    Oh dear, I’m going slightly mad
    I’m going slightly mad
    It finally happened, happened
    It finally happened uh huh
    It finally happened I’m slightly mad – oh dear!
    I’m knitting with only one needle
    Unravelling fast its true
    I’m driving only three wheels these days
    But my dear how about you?
    I’m going slightly mad
    I’m going slightly mad
    It finally happened
    It finally happened oh yes
    It finally happened
    I’m slightly mad!
    Just very slightly mad!
    And there you have it!
