Music Time – Sun

Jun 23, 2014

Welcome to Summer!

 

coppertone

 

Last year we did a Music Time entry on Summer Songs.  So this time I’m looking for songs with the word “sun” or any variation of “sun”; such as sunny, sunshine, sunlight, etc.  It can be in the title, lyrics, band name, recording label, etc.

 

And there’s no need to include the link to the song if you don’t want to.  And repeats are allowed as I don’t expect everyone to read every post.

 

Okay, you know I gotta put Summer Sun – Jamestown Massacre

Sunshine Keri – Lee Oskar

Sunny – The Classics IV

Don’t Let The Sun Catch You Crying – Gerry and the Pacemakers

Seasons in the Sun – Terry Jacks

A Place in the Sun – Stevie Wonder

Sunlight – Three Dog Night

Come Run With Me – Copper Nickel
Come run with me, come race the everlasting sun with me

Walk Close to Me – Copper Nickel
Walk close to me, in the warmth of the morning sun

And finally, one of my favorite Sarah Brightman songs:
Meadowlark – Sarah Brightman
But the meadowlark said no, for the old King loved her so, she couldn’t bear to wound his pride,
So the sun-god flew away, and when the King came down that day, he found his meadowlark had died

 

 

Okay, you know the drill.  Start listing those songs.

    Okay MLCers – here’s a test; what song did this line come from?
    Bonus points for listing the next line (without looking it up)

    “One day she left without a word, she took away the sun”

    @Seawalker – re: Maybe good he’s gone. When you can’t sleep anymore and start looking like a baboon…

    Hey! I resent my resemblance to that comment!!! 😉 LOL.

    This has become my favorite song. . . 😀
    Blinded by the Light – Manfred Mann

    Mama always told me not to look into the eyes of the sun
    But mama, that’s where the fun is

    LOL, I mean, he still had some meat left on the tire. That means he had a lot of good mileage left in him. But Michael Jackson had problems, no doubt. But problems are most often self-inflicted. 91% of all problems come from your own head. So you do the math if he’s better off dead. 😆

    @Seawalker – you crack me up! ;). And, sometimes, I swear, it’s like I talking Japanee and you talking Chinee …. 😆

    @khs68 – re: sleep deprived baboon. Yes, you called? 😉

    LOL!!!

    I hope it doesn’t need mentioning – I mean this all in good fun …. :)

    LOL, this one is dedicated to @4G. From me, Michael Jacks(u)n. 😆 It’s a song about a mouse. He calls it “Ben”. If Mike doesn’t look like a baboon, then his own mother would have a hard time loving that face. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g40WCBaUXR4 Dang, look at how handsome he looks when he’s smiling. Compare it to this one. “You are not Alone” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAyKJAtDNCw I would be all alone if I were Mike. Poor Prescilla, she married him. 😆

    It’s painful seeing the pictures of him in his early years and the years before his death. Why did he do that to himself? So unrecognizably grotesque. So sad…all that fame and fortune…

    Terry Jacks – Seasons in the Sun

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5GEqjQETUM

    Man, this is troubling. We’re past 100 posts and I can’t even remember anything before 75. In denial. And I keep flipping back to @mike’s list earlier to make sure it’s not there. 😆

    June 24th, 2014 at 6:32 pm #

    But, @khs, would you marry him? LOL

    June 24th, 2014 at 6:52 pm #

    Hmmm. Let me think…. multi-millions, luxury cars, designer clothes, uber jewelry, fabulous vacations….offset by grotesque and getting the heebie jeebies everyday. Nope. I pass.

    @khs – 😆 😆 First time, you marry for love. Second time, you marry for money. You wise up for the 3rd marriage. Third time, you marry for the love of money!

    Sesame Street – Good Morning Mr. Sun

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgSuXgeH1a8

    Good morning,
    Mister Sun,
    Welcome to the sky-
    Shine on all the
    Little creatures
    As you’re passing by.
    Stop yawning,
    Mister Sun,
    Time to make a day.
    Brightening every
    Little corner
    As you go your way.

    The moon and stars are
    Fine at night.
    But when it’s day,
    We need your light
    So, we say, “Keep shining,
    Mister Sun,
    Smiling in the blue.”
    You’ll see all the
    Little children,
    Smiling back at you.
    And birds and bees,
    The flowers, the trees,
    The whole wide world
    Will seem to say,
    “Good Morning,
    Good Morning,”
    Mister Sun.
    Good Morning,
    Have a nice day.

    @khs – Bill and Melissa, the perfect ’10’ couple. She’s about a ‘7’ and he’s pushing a ‘3’. But together they make a perfect ’10’. 😆

    “On this day,
    I give you my heart,
    My promise,
    That I will walk with you,
    Hand in hand,
    Wherever our journey leads us,
    Living, learning, loving,
    Together,
    Forever.”

    😆 The End

    Hall and Oates, “Sara Smile”:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOFCTFXn6xE

    Baby hair with a woman’s eyes
    I can feel you watching in the night
    All alone with me and we’re waiting for the sunlight
    When I feel cold you warm me
    And when I feel I can’t go on, you come and hold me
    It’s you and me forever

    Glen Campbell, “Gentle On My Mind”:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2A7iuQF_tAc

    Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines
    And the junk yards and the highways come between us
    And some other woman crying to her mother cause she turned and you were gone
    I still might walk for hours tears of joy might stain my face
    And a summer sun might burn me till I’m blind
    But not to where I cannot see you moving on the back roads
    By the rivers flowing gentle on my mind

    So sad to see his decline . . . . :(

    Glen Campbell, “Galveston”:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKAvFNegfAg

    Galveston, oh Galveston, I am so afraid of dying
    Before I dry the tears she’s crying
    Before I watch your sea birds flying in the sun
    At Galveston, at Galveston

    Charlie Rich, “Did You Happen to See the Most Beautiful Girl in the World?”:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhqbESuc2v8

    I woke up this morning, realized what I had done,
    I stood alone in the cold gray dawn,
    I knew I’d lost my morning sun

    Frankie Avalon, “Venus”:

    Venus, make her fair
    A lovely girl with sunlight in her hair
    And take the brightest stars up in the skies
    And place them in her eyes for me

    Kodachrome
    They give us those nice bright colors
    They give us the greens of summers
    Makes you think all the world’s
    a sunny day
    I got a Nikon camera
    I love to take a photograph
    So mama don’t take my Kodachrome away

    Really? “Blinded by the light, wrapped up like a douche in the corner of the night“, “and gave my anus curly-wurly, and asked me if I needed a ride“. 😆

    @Rodney. Yes! Whenever I hear it on Mike Tabura’s show I have to laugh out loud thinking about the time you wrote on the blog: “gave my anus curly-wurly”. Hilarious!

    Okay MLCers – here’s a test; what song did this line come from?
    Bonus points for listing the next line (without looking it up)

    “One day she left without a word, she took away the sun”

    And the answer is… Lemon Tree by Peter, Paul, & Mary

    “One day she left without a word, she took away the sun,
    And in the dark she left behind, I knew what she had done”
