#MusicMonday Will You? by Hazel O’Connor

Hello! Happy Monday!! Time for more tunes! This is a weekly tag hosted by Drew over at THE TATTOOED BOOK GEEK which gives you the chance to share a favourite song or video!
Another walk down memory lane for me today and back to the eighties as this came up on a random playlist the other day  – Will You? by Hazel O’Connor! Check out the sax solo!! Not sure I’ll be copying her make-up though….

You drink your coffee and I sip my tea
And we’re sitting here
Playing so cool
Thinking what will be, will beBut it’s getting kind of late now
I wonder if you’ll stay now
Stay now, stay now, stay now
Or will you just politely say goodnight?I move a little closer to you
Not knowing quite what to do
And I’m feeling all fingers and thumbs
Spill my tea, oh, silly me

But it’s getting kind of late now
I wonder if you’ll stay now
Stay now, stay now, stay now
Or will you just politely say goodnight?

And then we touch
Much too much
This moment has been
Waiting for a long, long time

Makes me shiver, makes me quiver
This moment I’m so unsure
This moment I’ve waited for
Is it something you’ve been waiting for
Waiting for too?

Take off your eyes, bare your soul
Gather me to you and make me whole
Tell me your secrets, sing me the song
Sing it to me in the silent tongue

But it’s getting kind of late now
I wonder if you’ll stay now
Stay now, stay now, stay now
Or will you just politely say goodnight?

#MusicMonday ST ELMO’S FIRE by JOHN PARR

Music has never been so important for me so yay for Music Monday!  Hosted by Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek, it’s a weekly chance to share a favourite song or video – so join in!!

Back to an old favourite of mine and I really need to watch the film again – I need a Brat Pack movie binge!! It’s St Elmo’s Fire by John Parr – any excuse to drool over Rob Lowe is always fine by me!!  How is it 35 years ago already??! eek!!

Growin’ up you don’t see the writing on the wall
Passin’ by, movin’ straight ahead you knew it all
But maybe sometime if you feel the pain,
You’ll find you’re all alone everything has changed

Play the game you know you can’t quit until it’s won
Soldier of only you can do what must be done
You know, in some ways you’re a lot like me
You’re just a prisoner, and you’re tryin’ to break free

I can see a new horizon underneath the blazing sky
I’ll be where the eagle’s flying higher and higher
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where the future’s lying St. Elmo’s fire

Burning up don’t know just how far that I can go
Soon be home only just a few miles down the road
And I can make it, I know I can
You broke the boy in me, but you won’t break the man

I can see a new horizon underneath the blazing sky
I’ll be where the eagle’s flying higher and higher
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where the future’s lying St. Elmo’s fire

I can climb the highest mountain, cross the widest sea
I can feel St. Elmo’s fire burning in me, burning in me
Just once in his life a man has his time
And my time is now I’m comin’ alive

I can hear the music playin’ I can see the banners fly
Feel like a vet again. I hope I ain’t high

Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where the future’s lying St. Elmo’s fire

I can see a new horizon underneath the blazing sky
I’ll be where the eagle’s flying higher and higher
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where the future’s lying St. Elmo’s fire

I can climb the highest mountain, cross the widest sea
I can feel St. Elmo’s fire burning in me, burning in me
I can feel burning, uh uh inside of me

#MusicMonday FORBIDDEN COLOURS by DAVID SYLVIAN & SAKAMOTO

Happy Monday! And a Bank Holiday one too if you’re in the UK! Like we need another holiday right now!!!

Time for some tunes! Hosted by Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek, it’s a weekly chance to share a favourite song or video.

I’ve been listening to a lot of ‘Chill’ playlist songs this week, and this was one of my faves! Back to the 80’s we go haha!  Forbidden Colours by David Sylvian & Sakamoto from the film Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence.

The wounds on your hands never seem to heal
I thought all I needed was to believeHere am I, a lifetime away from you
The blood of Christ, or the beat of my heart
My love wears forbidden colours
My life believes

Senseless years thunder by
Millions are willing to give their lives for you
Does nothing live on?

Learning to cope with feelings aroused in me
My hands in the soil, buried inside of myself
My love wears forbidden colours
My life believes in you once again

I`ll go walking in circles
While doubting the very ground beneath me
Trying to show unquestioning faith in everything
Here am I, a lifetime away from you
The blood of Christ, or a change of heart

My love wears forbidden colours
My life believes
My love wears forbidden colours
My life believes in you once again

#MusicMonday Don’t You Forget About Me by Simple Minds

Happy Monday!! And time for some favourite tunes to start off the week! This is a tag hosted by the fab Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek so please join in the fun if you haven’t already!!

I’m back in the 80’s again for one of my favourite songs Don’t You Forget about Me,  from one of my favourite films – The Breakfast Club!! I wanted to be part of the Brat Pack back then!!

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ooh woh

Won’t you come see about me?
I’ll be alone, dancing you know it baby

Tell me your troubles and doubts
Giving me everything inside and out and
Love’s strange so real in the dark
Think of the tender things that we were working on

Slow change may pull us apart
When the light gets into your heart, baby

Don’t you, forget about me
Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
Don’t you, forget about me

Will you stand above me?
Look my way, never love me
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down

Will you recognize me?
Call my name or walk on by
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down, down

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ooh woh

Don’t you try and pretend
It’s my feeling we’ll win in the end
I won’t harm you or touch your defenses
Vanity and security

Don’t you forget about me
I’ll be alone, dancing you know it baby
Going to take you apart
I’ll put us back together at heart, baby

Don’t you, forget about me
Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
Don’t you, forget about me

As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
When you walk away

Or will you walk away?
Will you walk on by?
Come on, call my name
Will you call my name?I say
(Lala la la lala la la)
Will you call my name?
As you walk on by

#MusicMonday SOMETHING ABOUT YOU by LEVEL 42

Yay for Mondays! And yay for Music Monday! Our weekly chance to share some tunes and videos we love – thanks to Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek for hosting this each week. Join in the fun!

Back to the ’80’s for me today with SOMETHING ABOUT YOU by LEVEL 42

How, how can it be
That a love carved out of caring
Fashioned by fate could suffer so hard
From the games played once too often
But making mistakes is a part of life’s imperfection
Born of the years
Is it so wrong to be human after all?Drawn into the stream of undefined illusion
Those diamond dreams, they can’t disguise the truth

That there is something about you, baby, so right
I wouldn’t be without you, baby tonight

If ever our love was concealed
No one can say that we didn’t feel
A million things and a perfect dream of life (gone) fragile but free
We remain tender together
If not so in love
And it’s not so wrong, we’re only human after all

These changing years, they add to your confusion
Oh and you need to hear the time that told the truth

That there is something about you, baby so right
Don’t want to be without you, baby tonight
Because there’s something about you, baby, so right
I couldn’t live without you, baby, tonight

And that there’s something about you, yeah
And I couldn’t be without you, tonight

But you have to keep givin it that,No, you wont stop talkin,
Why dont you give it a rest?,
You got more rabbit than sainsburys,
Its time you got it off your chest,Now you is just the kinda girl to break my heart in two,
I knew right off when I first clapped my eyes on you,
But how was I to know you’d bend my earholes too,
With your incessant talkin,
Your becoming a pest,Rabbit x 8

#MUSICMONDAY GHOSTS by JAPAN

hello!! Happy Monday!! Time to share the music love thanks to Music Monday, hosted by Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek, giving us a weekly chance to share a favourite song or video.

I’ve been listening to ‘Chilled ’80’s ‘ a lot this week and it brought Ghosts by Japan back to my life!

When the room is quiet
The daylight almost gone
It seems there’s something I should know
Well I ought to leave but the rain it never stops
And I’ve no particular place to go

Just when I think I’m winning
When I’ve broken every door
The ghosts of my life blow wilder than before
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life blew wilder than the wind

Well I’m feeling nervous
Now I find myself alone
The simple life’s no longer there
Once I was so sure
Now the doubt inside my mind
Comes and goes but leads nowhere

Just when I think I’m winning
When I’ve broken every door
The ghosts of my life blow wilder than before
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life blew wilder than the wind

#MusicMonday CUDDLY TOY by ROACHFORD

Time for some tunes!!  Music Monday is a weekly ‘thang’ hosted by the fab Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek where you get to post a favourite video/song for no other reason other than you just can!!

Back to the 1980’s for me! I’d happily pick an ’80’s song everytime!! And this is Cuddly Toy by Roachford! I love his voice and I just love this song!! And there’s double denim!! What’s not to love!!

LYRICS

I know you’ve heard so many people say

I’ve got a different girl in every town

But there must be somebody telling lies

And spreading rumours, spreading rumours all around

Because my only joy, is a cuddly toy

Waiting for me when I get home

And what I need is a girl like you

To call my very own(chorus)So you’ve got to feel for me baby

So you’ve got to feel for me baby

So you’ve got to feel for me baby

And give me some love

Well I don’t pour out my heart like this, to everyone

And anyone that I meet

And I know it ain’t the wine ’cause I feel just fine,Can’t you see baby, I’m still on my feet(bridge)A cuddly toy is my only joy

Waiting for me when I get home

And what I need is a girl like you

To call my very own(repeat chorus, bridge and chorus)

#MusicMonday TAKE ON ME by A-HA

It’s Monday! It’s time for Music!!  Hosted by the fabulous Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek, it’s a chance to share a favourite video/song weekly and get the week off to a good start!

Back to the 80’s for me today and A-HA!!  This video still wows me!

We’re talking away
I don’t know what
I’m to say I’ll say it anyway
Today’s another day to find you
Shying away
I’ll be coming for your love, okay?

Take on me (take on me)
Take me on (take on me)
I’ll be gone
In a day or two

So needless to say
I’m odds and ends
But I’ll be stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is okay
Say after me
It’s no better to be safe than sorry

Take on me (take on me)
Take me on (take on me)
I’ll be gone
In a day or two
