Song Lyric Sunday – DJ – Spin Em’

“Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me” made me cry the first time I saw George Michael sing it and introduced Elton John onto the stage. I got chills playing it back and watching it again tonight. It has always been my favorite version. “Jungle Love” was in the normal rotation by the DJ at the E-club in 1984-1985 when I was on base at Camp Lejeune and influenced my jive dancing.

Song Lyric Sunday – “The Snake Song” Billy Gilman

This week I chose “The Snake Song” by Billy Gilman. The lyrics are quite quirky!

Song Lyric Sunday – “I Like Birds” by Eels

This week I chose 2 songs. The first one is by Eels called “I Like Birds”. The second one is “Bird Dog” by The Everly Brothers. Two very different songs but I couldn’t make up my mind.

Song Lyric Sunday – “Husbands & Wives” by Roger Miller & Others

Husbands and Wives is a mid-tempo waltz in the key of C major. It is about a couple who is breaking up. With both parties having too much pride in themselves to reconcile.

Song Lyric Sunday – “Today I Started Loving You Again” by Merle Haggard

No artist has ever written with conviction as Merle Haggard. His songs project his feelings at the time they were written. The lyrics to “Today, I Started Loving You Again” was a “love at first site” but with a broken heart that had healed and then reminded of the love that was lost but still there after putting eyes on that past lover.

Song Lyric Sunday – “Boondocks” by Little Big Town

I chose “Boondocks” by Little Big Town. This song is relatable to me! I was born in a small town in Texas and learned to play cards and dominos at a young age. When I stayed with my grandparents in the country on the weekends, we would get up and go to church on Sunday morning.

Song Lyric Sunday – “Stupid Cupid” by Connie Francis

This week I chose “Stupid Cupid” by Connie Francis which has an upbeat, bubblegum blowing, hula hooping type of feel to it. Francis released It was released in Italy in 1959 by Neil Sedaka on his “As Long As I Live” album by RCA Italiana.

Song Lyric Sunday – “Spirit in the Sky” by Norman Greenbaum

Ghosts are also known as spirits and this week I have chosen Norman Greenbaum’s “Spirit in the Sky”. The song was written and originally recorded by Norman Greenbaum. Greenbaum has always been known as a “one hit wonder” as this was his only number one hit.
