I might take a train, I might take a plane, but if I have to walk, I’m going just the same. There were a lot of real good train songs here last week and we had an abundance of contestants making contributions, which is all good. I am hoping that we can do just as well this week. I made some progress on the new badge/banner for SLS and although it won’t be ready for a while yet, it is coming along nicely. I want to apologize for all of that complaining that I did last week and in case you are wondering my new printer is working fine now.
I have fun with this challenge every week, as I enjoy seeing all the different songs that everyone will come up with. Song Lyric Sunday is mostly about having fun and sharing your music with others. Tell a story, what year was the song written, who wrote it, did it make the charts? Post a video, show the lyrics, but most important, make sure that you have fun. This week the prompt is Bus/Truck/Lorry songs and I feel that everyone should be able to find a song that fits this theme. 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. If it does not fit, then please explain why you chose this song.
• 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.
