Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 8/26/18

I know I’ve spoken before about how I come up with the theme. Today, it was when I started thinking about my cell phone plan. We just changed it recently and I was wondering when my eldest would actually start paying me for her phone, since she’s a college graduate and moving to L.A. to start her big girl job in a week.

Then, randomly, my sister and I went looking for duck breast to make a planned dinner tonight. Apparently there’s not many people in or around SLC who eat duck. We went to a few places and called about ten. Most stores that focus solely on meat were closed on Saturdays and Sundays. We finally just gave up. It was frustrating and annoying, but we settled on a different plan. You know what they say about the best laid plans and all that.

Since I’ve been preparing for a dinner party all day and haven’t had much time to focus on the theme, I finally decided that my first thought was the best. It also really fit with my day today, which doesn’t hurt, I suppose.

With that, we’ll just get right to it. Let’s put on our thinking caps, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is plan.

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

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

  20. I’ve had this song going through my head lately, and I decided to use it today because I can make it fit the theme. I love Stevie Nicks, and “Landslide” is my favorite song of hers by far, and I realized yesterday how afraid I am of changing because I had built my life around my husband. I had all these plans for our life after the kids had left home, and now I find that those plans are no longer viable, so it’s time to make new plans. So I am going to share this song with the hope that I can begin to make new plans for my own future no matter what landslides come my way. Hope you all have a great Sunday.
    Written by Stevie Nicks lyrics from Google

    I took my love, I took it down
    Climbed a mountain and I turned around
    And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
    ‘Til the landslide brought me down
    Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
    Can the child within my heart rise above?
    Can I sail through the changin’ ocean tides?
    Can I handle the seasons of my life?
    Well, I’ve been ‘fraid of changin’
    ‘Cause I’ve built my life around you
    But time makes you bolder
    Even children get older
    And I’m gettin’ older, too
    Well, I’ve been ‘fraid of changin’
    ‘Cause I’ve built my life around you
    But time makes you bolder
    Even children get older
    And I’m gettin’ older, too
    I’m gettin’ older, too
    Ah, take my love, take it down
    Oh, climb a mountain and turn around
    And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
    Well, the landslide will bring it down
    And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
    Well, the landslide will bring it down
    Oh, the landslide will bring it down

  24. I just realized I forgot to let you know that I nominated you for another lyric challenge. It is only three songs and nominating is optional (I did three for the whole thing instead of three per day). You can find out about it on my pingback for “Marry You” (plan). The great thing is you get to pick a theme, or not! If you are not able to I understand.
