#MusicMonday Let’s Dance by Five

Monday is here once more! That means MUSIC!  Hosted by Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek, it’s a weekly chance to share some tunes!|

I’m in need of songs that make me smile and want to dance, and this is one of my faves for doing that!  Five and Let’s Dance….

Jiggy jump to the beat
And keep bouncing
Thirty seconds and counting
Hot one, this choice critical
Situation is difficult
My caliber won’t allow me to rhyme on a level where you people can hear me
See me, guess I know you want to be me
In the meantime bounce to the beat see

Music is my life
Cause my life is music
The beat of the drum in your heart

Let’s dance
Like you mean it, can’t you feel it, don’t you know
Let’s dance
Cause you need it, better believe it, here we go
Let’s dance
Give your all when we’re coming together on the floor
Let’s dance
You know that you’ve got what I like

Check it down
Dropping verbal bombs on the beat
Hoping that you people think this sound is unique
Ccause I like to party
You like to party
Come on everybody got to get it started
I got something to get you jumpin’
When I kick a freaky rhyme I get the dance floor thumpin’
Just step back and take time to check
When I rock up on the mic you people never forget
So check it out.

#MusicMonday DON'T STAND SO CLOSE TO ME by THE POLICE

Time for more tunes! And never has music been as important as the times we are now living in. So if you’ve not taken part in Music Monday before – hosted by the fab Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek – then join in now! We need to find new music, make ourselves smile, and dance round the living room to keep fit!!

So I’ve gone for a very apt song today – back to the 80’s once more as I love that decade! – and it’s DON’T STAND SO CLOSE TO ME by The Police! SOCIAL DISTANCING PEOPLE!!

Young teacher the subject
Of schoolgirl fantasy
She wants him so badly
Knows what she wants to be
Inside her there’s no room
This girl’s an open page
Book marking she’s so close now
This girl is half his age

Don’t stand so close to me
Her friends are so jealous
You know how bad girls get
Sometimes it’s not so easy
To be the teacher’s pet
Temptation, frustration
So bad it makes him cry
Wet bus stop, she’s waiting
His car is warm and dry

Don’t stand so close to me
Loose talk in the classroom
To hurt they try and try
Strong words in the staffroom
The accusations fly
It’s no use
He sees her
He starts to shake he starts to cough
Just like the old man in
That famous book by Nabakov

Don’t stand so close to me

#MusicMonday CRAZY by PATSY CLINE

Hello!  Time to start the week with some tunes! Music Monday is hosted by Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek and gives you a weekly chance to share some music with the world.

Only one song to choose this week to describe the world we’re currently living in – CRAZY  by PATSY CLINE!!  Stay safe people!

Crazy, I’m crazy for feeling so lonely
I’m crazy, crazy for feeling so blue
I knew you’d love me as long as you wanted
And then someday you’d leave me for somebody new

Worry, why do I let myself worry?
Wondering what in the world did I do?
Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you
I’m crazy for trying and crazy for crying

And I’m crazy for loving you
Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you
I’m crazy for trying and crazy for crying
And I’m crazy for loving you.

#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 SIR DUKE by STEVIE WONDER


First Monday of March! And time for some choons! This is Music Monday, hosted by Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek giving us a weekly chance to share a favourite song or video!


This week I’ve mostly been playing Stevie Wonder, so it’s difficult to choose my favourite of his! So many great songs! So Sir Duke it is!! Released in 1976 and still sounding wonderful!

Music is a world within itself
With a language we all understand
With an equal opportunity
For all to sing, dance and clap their hands

Just because a record has a groove
Don’t make it hit the groove
But you can tell by the dance that let’s you in
When the people start to move

They can feel it all over
They can feel it all over, people
They can feel it all over
They can feel it all over, people

Music knows it is and always will
Be one of the things that life just won’t quit
But here are some of music’s pioneers
That time will not allow us to forget, no

For there’s Basie, Miller, Satchmo
And the king of all, Sir Duke
And with a voice like Ella’s ringing out
There’s no way the band can lose

You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over, people
You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over, people

You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over, people
Can’t you feel it all over?
Everybody all over, people

#MusicMonday WOMAN IN CHAINS by TEARS FOR FEARS

Happy Music Monday!!  This is a tag hosted by the fabulous Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek every Monday – giving you the chance to share a favourite song/video! Join in the fun!!

I’ve recently rediscovered my love for Tears For Fears – so many amazing songs and I’ve chosen Woman In Chains this week. Such a powerful song

You better love loving and you better behave
You better love loving and you better behave
Woman in Chains
Woman in Chains

Calls her man the Great White Hope
Says she’s fine, she’ll always cope
Woman in Chains
Woman in Chains

Well I feel lying and waiting is a poor man’s deal
And I feel hopelessly weighed down by your eyes of steel
It’s a world gone crazy
Keeps Woman in Chains

Trades her soul as skin and bones
Sells the only thing she owns
Woman in Chains
Woman in Chains

Men of Stone
Men of Stone

Well I feel deep in your heart there are wounds Time can’t heal
And I feel somebody somewhere is trying to breathe
Well you know what I mean
It’s a world gone crazy
Keeps Woman in Chains

It’s under my skin but out of my hands
I’ll tear it apart but I won’t understand
I will not accept the Greatness of Man

It’s a world gone crazy
Keeps Woman in Chains

So Free Her
So Free Her
