For 5/19/19 ~ “Dusk Till Dawn”

This week Jim gives us the prompts Dawn/Noon/Dusk/Midnight/Nocturnal/Diurnal.  Hmm.  Well nothing is jumping out at me.  After a quick search I found this contemporary song by ZAYN featuring Sia.   I can’t remember where I first heard this song.  Maybe on one of the dancing shows I watch.  Or someone on the Voice may have covered it.  The song is catchy.  Not necessarily memorable.  Yet the boy from One Direction does good.  The video below contains the lyrics.  Hope you enjoy.

For 5/12/19 ~ “Supermarket Flowers”

Mother’s Day is bittersweet for me for many reasons that I will not go into because today should be a happy occasion.  I picked Ed Sheeran’s “Supermarket Flowers”.  I hope you enjoy.

For 4/21/19 ~ “Mr. Blue Sky”

Jim gave us the prompts of seasons, winter, spring, summer or fall.  Thank Jim!!!

I picked spring.

What embodies spring better than Mr. Blue Sky by ELO? The video screams springtime as well. Welcome back Mr. Blue Sky. This is an homage to my friends in the Northeast and Midwest. Your winter sucked this year.  Well unless you enjoy ice, sleet and snow 🙂

Morning! Today’s forecast calls for blue skies

Sun is shining in the sky
There ain’t a cloud in sight
It’s stopped raining
Everybody’s in the play
And don’t you know
It’s a beautiful new day
Hey ay ay!

Runnin’ down the avenue
See how the sun shines brightly
In the city
On the streets where once was pity
Mr. Blue
Sky is living here today
Hey ay ay!

Mr. Blue Sky
Please tell us why
You had to hide away
For so long (so long)
Where did we go wrong?

Mr. Blue Sky
Please tell us why
You had to hide away
For so long (so long)
Where did we go wrong?

Hey you with the pretty face
Welcome to the human race
A celebration
Mr. Blue Sky’s up there waitin’
And today
Is the day we’ve waited for
Ooorrr

Oh, Mr. Blue Sky
Please tell us why
You had to hide away
For so long (so long)
Where did we go wrong?

Hey there Mr. Blue
We’re so pleased to be with you
Look around see what you do
Everybody smiles at you

Hey there Mr. Blue
We’re so pleased to be with you
Look around see what you do
Everybody smiles at you

Mister Blue Sky!
Mister Blue Sky
Mister Blue Sky-yiy!

Mr. Blue you did it right
But soon comes Mr. Night
Creeping over
Now his hand is on your shoulder
Never mind
I’ll remember you this
I’ll remember you this way!

Mr. Blue Sky
Please tell us why
You had to hide away
For so long (so long)
Where did we go wrong?

Hey there Mr. Blue (Sky)
We’re so pleased to be with you (Sky)
Look around see what you do (Blue)
Everybody smiles at you

For 3/24/19 ~ “Time in a Bottle”

We are back.  Time for #SLS.  Jim (the host with the most) gave us the following prompt:

March 24, 2019 – Minutes/Hours/Days/Weeks/Months

Me trying to be clever thinks what is a way to capture all those words … maybe using time.  60 minutes in an hour and 24 hours in a day and 365 days in a year made of 52 weeks and 12 months.  And what is all that really but time.

I almost opted for “Too Much Time on My Hands” by Styx.  Then I went all sentimental and chose “Time in a Bottle” by the wonderful Jim Croce.  Check out the Wiki – what a sentimental love song.

For 3/17/19 ~ “Book of Love”

#SLS is kicking off this wonderful St. Patrick’s Day week. Jim continues being our host with the most. Nice post for us to ping back to this week. Loved the “roll call”.

At the risk of duplicates or triplicates, I went with the first song that came to mind. “Book of Love” written by three members of the Monotones: Warren Davis, George Malone and Charles Patrick.

Enjoy!!
