The Loco-motion was a huge hit when I was in high school. I can still remember when the song was played at school dances we all made a long “train”. Holding on for dear life not to get shaken off. Fun times.

The Loco-motion by Kylie Minogue

Everybody’s doin’ a brand new dance now
(Come on baby do the locomotion)
I know you’ll get to like it if you give it a chance now
(Come on baby do the locomotion)
My little baby sister can do it with ease
It’s easier than learning your A B C’s
So come on, come on, do the locomotion with me
You gotta swing your hips now
Come on baby, jump up, jump back
Well, I think you got the knack, ohh
Now that you can do it, let’s make a chain now
(Come on baby do the locomotion)
Chug-a chug-a motion like a railway train now
(Come on baby do the locomotion)
Do it nice and easy now don’t lose control
A little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul
So come on, come on, do the locomotion with me
Come on, do the locomotion
Come on, do the locomotion
Come on, do the locomotion
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Move around the floor in a locomotion
(Come on baby do the locomotion)
Do it holding hands if you got the notion
(Come on baby do the loco-motion)
There’s never been a dance that’s so easy to do
It even makes you happy when you’re feeling blue
So come on, come on, do the locomotion with me
You gotta swing your hips now
Come on baby, jump up, jump back
Well, I think you got the knack, ohh
Do the loc, do the loc, do the loco locomotion
(Come on do the locomotion)
Do the loc, do the loc, do the loco locomotion
(Come on, do the locomotion)
Come on baby
All that you can do is come on baby
Come on, come on, come on, come on…
Come on!

With all my heart thank you for your support and taking the time to look at my post.

Have a wonderful day.

The Lady In Red by Chris de Burgh is one of those songs that brings back so many memories. It was number 1 on our Top 40. My first love and I kissed for the first time on this song.

The Lady In Red  by Chris de Burgh

I’ve never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight,
I’ve never seen you shine so bright,
I’ve never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance,
They’re looking for a little romance, given half a chance,
And I have never seen that dress you’re wearing,
Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes,
I have been blind;

The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek,
There’s nobody here, it’s just you and me,
It’s where I want to be,
But I hardly know this beauty by my side,
I’ll never forget the way you look tonight;

I’ve never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight,
I’ve never seen you shine so bright, you were amazing,
I’ve never seen so many people want to be there by your side,
And when you turned to me and smiled, it took my breath away,
And I have never had such a feeling,
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight;

The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek,
There’s nobody here, it’s just you and me,
It’s where I want to be,
But I hardly know this beauty by my side,
I’ll never forget the way you look tonight;

I never will forget the way you look tonight…
The lady in red, the lady in red,
The lady in red, my lady in red,

I love you…

I love all songs by Elton John. I have a double Vinyl record and later I bought the CD.

Daniel by Elton John

Daniel is traveling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
And I can see Daniel waving goodbye
Oh it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes
They say Spain is pretty though I’ve never been
And Daniel says it’s the best place that he’s ever seen
He should know, he’s been there enough
Oh I miss Daniel, oh I miss him so much, oh
Daniel my brother you are older than me
Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won’t heal?
Your eyes have died but you see more than I
Daniel you’re a star in the face of the sky
Oh Daniel my brother you are older than me
Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won’t heal?
Your eyes have died but you see more than I
Daniel you’re a star in the face of the sky
Daniel is traveling tonight on a plane
And I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
And I can see Daniel waving goodbye
Oh it looks like Daniel, it must be the clouds in my eyes
Oh God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

Good day friends,

Well what can I say, I love musicals. Annie is second on my list.

Tomorrow from the Soundtrack Annie

The sun’ll come out tomorrow
Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
There’ll be sun
Just thinkin’ about tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow
‘Til there’s none
When I’m stuck a with day that’s gray and lonely
I just stick out my chin and grin, and say, oh
The sun’ll come out tomorrow
So you gotta hang on ’til tomorrow
Come what may
Tomorrow, tomorrow
I love ya tomorrow
You’re always a day away
When I’m stuck a with day that’s gray and lonely
I just stick out my chin and grin, and say, oh
The sun’ll come out tomorrow
So you gotta hang on ’til tomorrow
Come what may
Tomorrow, tomorrow
I love ya tomorrow
You’re always a day away
Tomorrow, tomorrow
I love ya tomorrow
You’re always a day away

One of my all-time favorites is the Musical The Song of Music. I can remember watching it on VHS when I was a child. The poor tape did not even want to play later on. Luckily for us DVD’s came out and I bought one for myself and one for my Mom. I knew the whole musical word for word.

My Mother had a daycare center and the children loved it as well. On a Friday we usually watched a movie and most of the times the Sound of Music was first on the list.

The Sound of Music by Julie Andrews

The hills are alive
With the sound of music
With songs they have sung
For a thousand years

The hills fill my heart
With the sound of music
My heart wants to sing ev’ry song it hears

My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds
That rise from the lake to the trees
My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies
From a church on a breeze

To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls
Over stones on it’s way
To sing through the night
Like a lark who is learning to prey

I go to the hills
When my heart is lonely
I know I will hear
What I’ve heard before

My heart will be blessed
With the sound of music
And I’ll sing once more

With all my heart, thank you for your continued support.

Have a Blessed day.

Good morning friends.

Today’s song is very close to my heart. I was going through a very difficult time in my life. My Mother passed away suddenly, and I filed for divorce. All in a period of 2 weeks. My friend invited me to come to her church. I thought I was coping on my my own. The congregation sang this song, I could not sing along because I did not know the words so I listened. I burst out in tears and my legs gave in. My friend and her husband helped me to keep standing. At that moment I knew that I will not be able to deal with this on my own. I needed my Lord and He did help me through the situation.

I Need You More By Kim Walker-Smith

I Need You More
Kim Walker-Smith
I need you more
More than yesterday
I need you more
More than words can say
I need you more
Than ever before
I need you Lord
I need you Lord
More than the air I breath
More than the song I sing
More than the next heart beat
More than anything.
And, Lord, as the time goes by
I’ll be by your side
‘Cause I never want to go back
To my old life
I need you more
More than yesterday
I need you more
More than words can say
I need you more
Than ever before
I need you lord
I need you lord
I need you more
More than yesterday
I need you more
More than words can say
I need you more
Than ever before
I need you Lord
I need you Lord
More than the air I breath
More than the song I sing
More than the next heart beat
More than anything.
And, Lord, as the time goes by
I’ll be by your side
‘Cause i never want to go back
To my old life
I need you more
More than yesterday
I need you more
More than words can say
I need you more… God
Than ever before
I need you lord
I need you lord
Oh I need you more God
More than yesterday
I need you more
So much more than words can say
I need you more God
Than ever before
I need you Lord
I need you Lord
We give you the highest praise
We give you the highest praise
We give you the highest praise
Jesus yeeaaah . . .
We give you the highest praise
We give you the highest praise
We give you the highest praise
Sing it again
We give you…
We give you the highest praise
We give you the highest praise
We give you the highest praise
We give you the highest praise

We give you the highest praise
We lift you up
Ooh yeah yeah
All our praise
All our love
All our adoration GOD
We give you all
We give you all, yeah
Oh oohhh, yeah
Oh more than the air I breath
More than the song I sing
More than anything
I need you more
More than the air that I breath
More than any song I could ever sing
Oh so much more than anything
I need you more

Thank you for joining me. Hope you love the song as much as I do.

Good day friends,

WOW, this song bring back so many memories. I remember my mom, her sister and I had a girls day out. I was still in primary school. We went to the movies and this song was played. I loved it ever since.

Thank you for the Music by ABBA

I’m nothing special, in fact I’m a bit of a bore
If I tell a joke, you’ve probably heard it before
But I have a talent, a wonderful thing
‘Cause everyone listens when I start to sing
I’m so grateful and proud
All I want is to sing it out loud
So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing
Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
Who can live without it? I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance, what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me
Mother says I was a dancer before I could walk
She says I began to sing long before I could talk
And I’ve often wondered, how did it all start?
Who found out that nothing can capture a heart
Like a melody can?
Well, whoever it was, I’m a fan
So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing
Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
Who can live without it? I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me
I’ve been so lucky, I am the girl with golden hair
I wanna sing it out to everybody
What a joy, what a life, what a chance
Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing
Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty

What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me
So I say
Thank you for the music, for giving it to me

Thank you for your ongoing support and reading my post.

What is your favorite song?

Have a fantastic day.

When I hear this song it takes me back to before I went to school. I was visiting my grand parents in Cradock and my aunt used to play it on the record player in the Grand Sitting room in the evenings after dinner… Good memories. I do love Joe Dolan’s songs.

Hush hush Maria by Joe Dolan

who’s gonna tell Maria he won’t be home
who’s gonna tell Maria she’s now alone
tell her the life he wanted took him away
tell her there’s no use living for yesterday
hush hush Maria
hush Maria
they say it’s best they say
hush hush Maria hush Maria
it had to end this way
who’s gonna tell Maria he won’t return
who’s gonna tell Maria that love can burn
tell her that love so simple could never be
tell her that she was looking but could not see
who’s gonna tell Maria
and tell her son
tell them they lost a man
they never won
who’s gonna tell Maria
he won’t be home
he was the kind of man
no-one could own

Thank you for taking the time to look at my post.

Till next time. Stay safe.

Another one of my favorites. I am a huge fan of Josh Groban. I was first introduced to his music through a friend I met on the internet many years back. We talked for hours about music and not one of us was a musician or in the music industry, we just love music of all genre’s.

My Confession by Josh Groban

I have been blind
Unwilling
To see the true love
You’re giving
I have ignored every blessing
I’m on my knees
Confessing…
That I feel myself surrender
Each time I see your face
I am staggered by your beauty
Your unassuming grace
And I feel my heart is turning
Falling into place
I can’t hide it
Now hear my confession
I have been wrong about you
I thought I was strong without you
For so long
Nothing could move me
For so long
Nothing could change me
Now I feel myself surrender
Each time I see your face
I am captured by your beauty
Your unassuming grace
And I feel my heart is turning
Falling into place
I can’t hide it
Now hear my confession
You are the air that I breathe
You’re the ground beneath my feet
When did I stop believing
Cause I feel myself surrender
Each time I see your face
I am staggered by your beauty
Your unassuming grace
And I feel my heart (is turning)
Falling into place
I can’t hide it
Now hear my confession
I can’t hide it
Now hear my confession
Hear my confession
(And I feel my heart is turning
Falling into place)

With all my heart, Thank You for your ongoing support and for taking the time to have a look at my post.

Stay safe and healthy. Till next time.

Have a Fabulous day.

Good day everyone,

One morning after my marriage fell apart, I heard this song by Bruno Mars. We were on our way to school. For a year after that I listened to it several times a day. I did find happiness again…

Today my life begins by Bruno Mars

Ooh…
I’ve been workin’ hard so, long
Seems like pain has been my only friend
My fragile heart’s been done so wrong
I wondered if I’d ever heal again
Ohh just like all the seasons, never stay the same
All around me, I can feel a change
I will, break these chains that bind me
Happiness will find me
Leave the past behind me
Today my life begins
A whole new world is waiting
It’s mine for the takin’
I know I can make it
Today my life begins
Yesterday has come and gone
And I’ve learn how to leave it where it is
And I see that I was wrong
For ever doubting I could win
(Ooh!) Just like all the seasons
Never stay the same
All around me I can feel a change
I will, break these chains that bind me
Happiness will find me
Leave the past behind me
Today my life begins
A whole new world is waiting
It’s mine for the takin’
I know I can make it
Today my life begins…
Life’s too short to have regrets
So I’m learnin’ now to leave it in the past, and try to forget
We only have
One life to live
So you better make the best of it
I will, break these chains that bind me
Happiness will find me
Leave the past behind me
Today my life begins
A whole new world is waiting
It’s mine for the takin’
I know I can make it
Today my life begins
I will, break these chains that bind me
Happiness will find me
Leave the past behind me
Today my life begins
A whole new world is waiting
It’s mine for the takin’
I know I can make it
Today my life begins
Today my life begins…

Have a fabulous day.
