Song Lyric Sunday – It’s Christmas Day by Family Force 5

I went through a time when I really didn’t want to listen to mainstream Christmas music. I even tried to convince myself that I didn’t like it, but I realized this year that I actually love so much of it. There are songs that I don’t like, for sure, but for the most part, it’s all just part of the season.

My daughter introduced me to Family Force 5 and I was excited when they put out a Christmas album, although somewhat reluctant. It was actually better than I thought it would be. The year the album came out, I bought VIP tickets for me and my daughter and we saw them live in concert the first part of December. We got to meet the band and I even have a picture to show for it!

This album was the only Christmas music I listened to for at least two years in a row. I still love it, even though I haven’t listened to it in a while. I’m happy that this song fit the theme today and that I get to share it with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all!

I woke up this morning
And I stumbled out of my bed
Dreams from the night before
ring inside of my head
Ran down the stairs when I remembered
It’s Christmas day
Christmas day

Everyone is right here at home
Sing all those songs we all know
This is the season for love
It’s Christmas day

A day like any other day
Where even the coldest of hearts will pray
For peace on earth and good will to all men
We all can remember the greatest
The greatest gift of all

It’s Christmas day

I saw all the presents
wrapped underneath the tree
Now I’m surrounded by my family
Oh, I can hardly believe
That it’s Christmas day

Children singing
And the jingle bells ringing
Wake up it’s Christmas morn
The day our king was born

Snowflakes are falling
All the times that we’re recalling
We laugh and celebrate
Today is Christmas day

It’s Christmas day
Christmas day

It’s Christmas day
Christmas day

Song Lyric Sunday – Fever by Family Force 5

I don’t really listen to this band much anymore, but whenever I click on their music, it honestly just makes me smile.  It brings back so many great memories of my daughter.  We used to jam to this song and many of their others, and I will always cherish those precious moments with her.

One of the things I love about this song is that you just can’t help but move.  I found myself thumping to the beat and almost got up to dance it out.  I decided it was about time for a fun song.

I believe it was written by the band members and the lyrics are in the video so I won’t re-post them here.

I hope you all enjoy!

Song Lyric Sunday – Love Addict by Family Force 5

I had a hard time getting into my daughters music.  She would play me things and I would turn up my nose, but then she would keep playing them and before too long I found myself listening to them when she wasn’t in the car.   Family Force 5 is one of those bands.

Love Addict is the first song of theirs she ever played for me and I have to tell you… I wasn’t much of a fan.  But the more she played it and the more I heard their other songs, the more I grew to like them.  It’s a catchy tune and I just can’t get past the lyrics… “I’ve got a fever and the prescription’s love”

We need more love, not just in our personal lives, but in the world today.

I have two stories about this particular band/song, so I hope it doesn’t take too long.

The first is that I used to play this in my office at work.  One day, a sales guy walked into my office and told me it was “devil’s music”.  I assume he said that because it was loud and scream-y and perhaps not what he’s used to.  It made me angry though and I said, “This song is all about love, so why don’t you just leave if you don’t like it.”  I very much dislike people who judge music.  What the hell is devil’s music anyway?  Maybe the devil likes Celine Dion… who knows??

The other story is much happier… 🙂

I bought Adelle tickets to see Family Force 5, but I put some money down and really went extravagant.  I bought her VIP tickets to a show they did right before Christmas.  Not only did we get pictures with the band and signatures of most of the band members, we ended up in the front row and finally ended up on stage during the show.  It was SO much fun.  I will always remember the time I spent with my daughter jamming out to some pretty fantastic music.

I’ve sort of stopped listening to this band, but the memories will always be sweet.  I hope you enjoy!

Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Hold up, wait a minute, put a little love in it

Doctor, Doctor, I’ve got an emergency
It seems I’m head over heels, a case of L-O-V-E
It’s like I’m glowing inside
Yeah, a light I can’t hide
And if this feeling is bad then I don’t wanna be right
What I’ve got in my soul gives me the highest delight
Oh yeah it’s better than drugs
In fact it’s sent from above, huh huh

Hold up, wait a minute, put a little love in it

Hey, Can’t kick the habit
Yeah, I got to have it
Yeah, I ‘m what they call a
Love addict, Love addict
Hey, can’t live without it
Yeah, G’on shout about it
Hey, I’m a symptomatic
Love addict, Love addict

Need a refill cause I just can’t get enough
I’ve got a fever, oh yeah, and the prescription’s love
So lay the truth on me
Cause that is all that I need

Hold up, wait a minute, put a little love in it

Hey, Can’t kick the habit
Yeah, I got to have it
Yeah, I ‘m what they call a
Love addict, Love addict
Hey, can’t live without it
Yeah, G’on shout about it
Hey, I’m a symptomatic
Love addict, Love addict

I’m blessed, I must confess
My heart is pounding in my chest
Cause this love’s the best
I’m just a love addict

Coming down with something outrageous
Lookout now cause it so contagious
This feeling’s got me reeling
So amped up that I hit the ceiling
Gotta clear my throat
Huh huh, now I gotta have some more

Hold up, wait a minute, put a little love in it
