I Forgive You Adam!

Lol. After the Voice fiasco, I’m over it. Enjoying Super Bowl LIII halftime show. Shame on the censors. I wish I was there to hear everything.

As always more to come.

For 2/3/19 Part II ~ “Point of No Return”

I’m baaaack!  No rules against a two-fer on #SLS.  I should have done an all in one post but this song escaped my recollection until I listened to all the great songs put up today.

This one reminds me of my brother Jimbo Pete.  God rest his soul.  As an 8th grade graduation gift, he gave me the album “Point of No Return”  which contains the song of the same name.   Yes we had 8th grade graduations from my parish school.  Off to high school and a world of possibilities.

I cannot listen to this song without bawling like a baby.  This song and Carry On My Wayward Son do a number on me … because my brother was wayward but he had a heart of gold.  Don’t worry, my tears are of the happy variety.  To me, sounds a little like ELP or Yes.  I hope you enjoy!

I heard the men saying something
The captains tell they pay you well
And they say they need sailing men to
Show the way, and leave today
Was it you that said, “How long, how long?”

They say the sea turns so dark that
You know it’s time, you see the sign
They say the point demons guard is
An ocean grave, for all the brave,
Was it you that said, “How long, how long,
How long to the point of know return?”

Your father, he said he needs you
Your mother, she says she loves you
Your brothers, they echo your words:
“How far to the point of know return?”
“Well, how long?”

Today I found a message floating
In the sea from you to me
It said that when you could see it
You cried with fear, the Point was near
Was it you that said, “How long, how long
To the Point of Know Return?”

Rules and Ping Back to #SLS for 2/3/19

As always, more to come.

For 2/3/19 ~ “Rock the Boat”

Hello everybody!  Time once again for #SLS.  Our prompt for 2/3/19 is “Ocean/Sea/Lake/Bay”.   Lions and Tigers and Bears Oh MY!  How can I pick just one?

My first thought was Iron Maiden’s “Rime of the Ancient Mariner”  off their Powerslave album but alas at over 13 minutes, not really a good choice for this venue.

Instead I went with “Rock the Boat” originally sung by the Hues Corporation. Writer(s): HOLMES WALLY, HOLMES WALDO T.   A sing along 70s vibe.  I hope you enjoy!

So I’d like to know where you got the notion?
So I’d like to know where you got the notion?
Rock the boat, rock the boat
Rock the boat, rock the boat

Ever since our voyage of love began
Your touch has thrilled me like the rush of the wind
And your arms have get me safe from the rolling sea
There’s always been a quiet place to harbor you and me

Your love is like a ship on the ocean
We’ve been sailing with a cargo filled with love and devotion

So I’d like to know where you got the notion?
So I’d like to know where you got the notion?
Rock the boat, rock the boat
Rock the boat, rock the boat

Up till now we sailed through every storm
And I’ve always had your tender lips to keep me warm
Don’t let this trip you have flow away from me
Don’t let me drift away, my dear, when love can set me free

Your love is like a ship on the ocean
We’ve been sailing with a cargo filled with love and devotion

So I’d like to know where you got the notion?
So I’d like to know where you got the notion?
Rock the boat, rock the boat
Rock the boat, rock the boat

Rock the boat, rock the boat
Rock the boat, rock the boat
Rock the boat, rock the boat Rock the boat

To join in, sing along, or just listen, here are the rules and ping back.

As always, more to come.
