A music blogger Badfinger Max at PowerPop wrote several posts about songs that have Richard Nixon in them and this made me think that there are probably a lot of songs that feature famous people in them, so I came up with the Song Lyric Sunday theme for this week to be a song that includes somebody famous in it. I cannot think of a greater honor than having somebody write a song that includes your name in it. I am not talking about a song that mentions the word baby and your nickname is Baby, I mean a song that actually mentions a name and this could be a fictional name as long as it is somebody famous. The movie theme and the TV theme both went real well, and I think this one will be just as fun and then next week the prompt also came to me from something that Max wrote.
I feel that everyone should be able to find a song that features a famous person in it. Try to find a song that fits the prompt, then write your post and please be patient, and wait for me to approve your pingbacks, or you can just place your link in the comments section.
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.
- Make sure you also credit the singer/band and if you desire you can 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 eventually work, as long as you are being patient, but you can also place your link in the comments if you don’t like to wait.
- 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 suggest future prompts.
- Have fun and enjoy the music.
I am writing about the song ‘Ramble on Rose’ by the Grateful Dead this week. Next week I will write about ‘Rock & Roll Heaven’ by the Righteous Brothers. The upcoming prompts will be:
