I am still filling in as the guest host for SLS Helen Vahdati’s This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time Song Lyric Sunday, while she is recovering. Paula Light from lightmotifs suggested the prompt of “laughter” and since laughter is supposed to be the best medicine, hopefully this will help Helen recover. I think that there are plenty of songs that can work with that, so let’s go with laugh/laughter/laughing for our theme. Feel free to suggest future prompts.
Houston we have a problem, no not really but I do have an issue that WordPress has never resolved. If I make a comment on any post that is not mine and someone responds I never get alerted of the response. I love making comments and this is one of the best features on WordPress and the last thing that I want is for you to think that I am ignoring you. I do get an alert email if you hit the LIKE button on my comment, so if you intend to write back to me please do that, so I can read what you write.
Here are the “rules”:
- Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not.
- Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due and it’s honestly just a simple Google search.
- Make sure you also credit the singer/band and provide a link to where you found the lyrics.
- Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song.
- Ping back to this post will work best.
- Read at least one other person’s blog so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process.
- Feel free to use the Song Lyric Sunday badge by copying it into your post or add it to your site to show you are participating.
In case you are stuck I have a few suggestions. Laughing by The Guess Who, Laugh I Nearly Died by the Rolling Stones, It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry by Bob Dylan, I Only Wanna Laugh by Dusty Springfield, Laugh It Off by Merle Haggard, The Moon Just Looks Down And Laughs by Billie Holiday, I’m Gonna Laugh You out of My Life by Sarah Vaughan, Don’t Laugh At Me by Peter Paul and Mary or by Howlin’ Wolf, Go Ahead and Laugh by Martha and the Vandellas, Laugh to Keep From Crying by Madonna, Laughing At Me by Alice Cooper, Between a Laugh and a Tear by John Mellencamp, Who’s Laughing Now by Jessie J, I Should Be Laughing by Patty Smyth or If I Laugh by Cat Stevens. Since there is no requirement for the prompt laugh/laughter/laughing to be in the title of your song, you could always go with a song where the prompt is in the lyrics such as, If You Feel by Jefferson Airplane, The Tracks of My Tears by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Purple Rain by Prince, Sun King by the Beatles or I Started A Joke by the Bee Gees. I am going to listen to that Jeopardy Thinking Music while I figure out the song that I will write about for this week.
OK got it, I will go with ‘Ship Of Fools’ by the Grateful Dead. So many choices, what will you go with and as stated in the first rule there is no need to follow the prompt, so post any song whether it fits the theme or not. Don’t sweat the rules as the unwritten rule is to always have fun. FYI Jeopardy!’s memorable theme song ‘Think!’ was originally composed by the show’s creator Merv Griffin.
