#MusicMonday GOO GOO DOLLS – AUTUMN LEAVES

Hello and Happy Monday! Time for music to get the week off to a good start! This is a weekly tag hosted by Drew over at THE TATTOOED BOOK GEEK giving us a chance to share some songs and videos.

And my choice this week is topical with the changing seasons! Autumn Leaves by Goo Goo Dolls!! Such a lovely video too!

In the trees
The autumn breeze
The winter’s cold
But summer’s soul is underneath

The sun is low
The heavy sky
I sometimes watch it
‘Till it sinks below the tide

So I wait
So I wait

The sun is low
The heavy sky
I sometimes watch it
‘Till it sinks below the tide

Life is change
We move on
And where you go
I hope the summer goes along

So I wait
And I wait

And in the trees
The autumn breeze
The winter’s cold
But summer’s soul is underneath

The sun is low
The heavy sky
I sometimes watch it
‘Till it sinks below the tide

Life is change
We move on
And where you go
I hope the summer goes along

So I wait
And I wait, yeah

Life is change
We move on
And where you go
I hope the summer goes along

#MusicMonday RAINY DAYS AND MONDAYS by THE CARPENTERS

Time for more tunes! Music Monday is a weekly tag hosted by Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek and is a chance to share favourite songs/videos.

Gone for a classic today – RAINY DAYS AND MONDAYS by THE CARPENTERS.  That voice!!

Talkin’ to myself and feelin’ old
Sometimes I’d like to quit
Nothin’ ever seems to fit
Hangin’ around
Nothin’ to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

What I’ve got they used to call the blues
Nothin’ is really wrong
Feelin’ like I don’t belong
Walkin’ around
Some kind of lonely clown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Funny, but it seems I always wind up here with you
Nice to know somebody loves me
Funny, but it seems that it’s the only thing to do
Run and find the one who loves me (the one who loves me)

What I feel has come and gone before
No need to talk it out (talk it out)
We know what it’s all about
Hangin’ around (hangin’ around)
Nothin’ to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Funny, but it seems that it’s the only thing to do (only thing to do)
Run and find the one who loves me

What I feel has come and gone before
No need to talk it out
We know what it’s all about
Hangin’ around (hangin’ around)
Nothin’ to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down
Hangin’ around (hangin’ around)
Nothin’ to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get
Me down

#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 EARTH SONG by MICHAEL JACKSON

yay for Monday! Music Time!  A weekly tag hosted by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek where you get the chance to post up a favourite song/video.

MJ for me this week!! ❤❤❤

What about sunrise
What about rain
What about all the things that you said
We were to gain
What about killing fields
Is there a time
What about all the things
That you said were yours and mine

Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood we’ve shed before
Did you ever stop to notice
This crying Earth, these weeping shores

Aah, ooh What have we done to the world
Look what we’ve done
What about all the peace
That you pledge your only son

What about flowering fields
Is there a time
What about all the dreams
That you said was yours and mine

Did you ever stop to notice
All the children dead from war
Did you ever stop to notice
This crying earth, these weeping shores

Aah, ooh
Aah, ooh

I used to dream
I used to glance beyond the stars
Now I don’t know where we are
Although I know we’ve drifted far

Aah, ooh
Aah, ooh

Aah, ooh
Aah, ooh

Hey, what about yesterday
(What about us)
What about the seas
(What about us)
The heavens are falling down
(What about us)
I can’t even breathe
(What about us)
What about apathy
(What about us)
Drowning in the seas
(What about us)
What about the promised land
Preachin’ what I believe
(What about us)
What about the holy land
(What about it)
What about the greed
(What about us)
Where did we go wrong
Someone tell me why
(What about us)
What about baby boy
(What about him)
What about the days
(What about us)
What about all their joy
Do we give a damnAah, ooh
Aah, ooh

#MusicMonday I’m Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down by Paul Young

Time for tunes! This is a weekly thing hosted by Drew at  The Tattooed Book Geek where you just get the chance to post up a song you love!

Back to the 80’s for me today and another one of those artists whose posters I had all over my bedroom walls! Paul Young!

LYRICS

You think you’ve got it all set up

You think you’ve got the perfect plan

To charm everyone you see

And playing any game you can

But I’ve got news for you

I hope it don’t hit you too hard

I’m gonna catch you off guard

I’m gonna tear your playhouse down pretty soon

One of these days while you’re at play

You make our lives a stress and strain

Using the power ploy

I’m gonna tear your playhouse down room by room

All you do is pass around

Hearts you use as play toys

You’ve been playing madly

With every mind in town

So what you gonna do when you look up one day

And see your playhouse tumbling down

I’m gonna tear your playhouse down pretty soon

I’m gonna tear your playhouse down room by room

You think you’ve got it all set up

You think you’ve got the perfect plan

To charm everyone you see

And playing any game you can

You’ve been playing madly

With every mind in town

Oh, what you gonna do when you look up one day

And see your playhouse tumbling down

I’m gonna tear your playhouse down pretty soon

I’m gonna tear your playhouse down room by room

I’m gonna tear your playhouse down pretty soon

I’m gonna tear your playhouse down room by room by room

#MusicMonday Youth and Love by Jack Savoretti/Mika

Time to get funky again on a Monday! Thanks to Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek for hosting this weekly celebration of music – a chance to share songs you love and bring back good memories!


And this week it’s a newbie which is rare for me as I’m normally always listening to older music!  But I can’t get enough of Jack Savoretti at the moment and love his new duet with Mika – another fave singer of mine! ENJOY!!

Last night I found a photograph
Like a ghost from the past
Showed me who I was, not who I am
The greatest moments never last
Why does life move so fast?
I’ll never understand, heyI miss the broken hearts, the summers in the sun
They always say that love and youth are wasted on the young
But I remember every one
When our love feels more like hatred, how do we save it?
The only way we’re gonna make it is if we remember the feeling of
Youth and loveNow every line upon my face
Puts me back into my place
Whenever I start acting like a child
I guess we’ll never be the same
As who we were just yesterday
Loving on the line, our love was wildI miss the broken hearts, the summers in the sun
They always say that love and youth are wasted on the young
But I remember every one
When our love feels more like hatred, how do we save it?
The only way we’re gonna make it is if we remember the feeling
When our love feels more like hatred, how do we save it?
The only way we’re gonna make it is if we remember the feeling of
Youth and loveWoah, woah (la jeunesse et l’amour, tu t’en souviens)
Youth and love, woah (c’est facile d’oublier)
Youth and love (vas-y, essaye!)I miss the broken hearts, the summers in the sun
They always say that love and youth are wasted on the young
But I remember every one
When our love feels more like hatred, how do we save it?
The only way we’re gonna make it is if we remember the feeling
When our love feels more like hatred, how do we save it?
The only way we’re gonna make it is if we remember the feeling of
Remember the feeling of
Remember the feeling of
Youth and love
