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.

    Andy Gibb – An Everlasting Love

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

    I’ve been here all your life
    Watching your crying game
    You were the heaven in my lonely world
    And he was your sun and your rain
    I was losing you before I ever held you tight
    Before you ever held me in your arms
    And I won’t make you blue
    And maybe an everlasting love will do
    Ah, we got an everlasting love
    So tall, so wide
    So high above the rumble of thunder down below
    It’s your love I need
    It’s the only show
    And it’s you want an everlasting dream
    Can take us anywhere are the tears of yesterday
    We killed the pain
    We blew away the memories of the tears we cried
    And an everlasting love will never die
    Take me out of the cold
    Give me what I’ve hungered for
    If it’s the pleasure of taking my heart that you need
    Then it only makes me love you more
    I was yours before the stars were born and you were mine
    I could have saved you all the pain you knew
    And I won’t make you cry
    And maybe an everlasting love can try
    Ah, we got an everlasting love
    So tall , so wide
    So high above the rumble of thunder down below
    It’s your love I need, it’s the only show
    And it’s you want an everlasting dream
    Can take us anywhere are the tears are yesterday
    We killed the pain
    We blew away the memories of the tears we cried
    And an everlasting love will never die

    HAPA – Manoa in the rain

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0pA7wgeZTo

    MANOA, IN THE RAIN

    There’s a special place I know
    On this island that I go
    When I need some time, for peace of mind
    Or when I’m feeling low.

    It’s a place I like to go
    To get away and be alone
    To where I feel the love and blessings of
    Manoa, in the rain.

    Chorus:

    Manoa, in the rain, may I be with you again?
    What I feel inside when days are bright
    Could never be the same
    Than in the beauty of Manoa, in the rain.

    I met a girl not long ago
    Someone I’d like to get to know
    Well, we spent some time and walked outside
    At Manoa, in the rain.

    It was there our hearts embraced
    In the cool and misty rain
    Then we kissed goodbye, and said we’d try
    To meet there once again

    (Chorus)

    2nd Chorus:

    Manoa, in the rain, may I be with you again?
    What I feel inside
    On days there when the sun would shine
    Could never be the same, or ever take away
    The beauty of Manoa, in the rain.

    Lionel Richie – Easy

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuiaL9HD2hw

    Know it sounds funny
    But I just can’t stand the pain
    Girl I’m leaving you tomorrow
    Seems to me girl
    You know I’ve done all I can
    You see I begged, stole
    And I borrowed

    Ooh, that’s why I’m easy
    I’m easy like sunday morning
    That’s why I’m easy
    I’m easy like sunday morning

    Why in the world
    Would anyboddy put chains on me?
    I’ve paid my dues to make it
    Everbody wants me to be
    What they want me to be
    I’m not happy when I try to fake it!
    No!

    Ooh,that’s why I’m easy
    I’m easy like sunday morning
    That’s why I’m easy
    I’m easy like sunday morning

    I wanna be high, so high
    I wanna be free to know
    The things I do are right
    I wanna be free
    Just me, babe!

    That’s why I’m easy
    I’m easy like sunday morning
    That’s why I’m easy
    I’m easy like sunday morning
    Because I’m easy
    Easy like sunday morning
    Because I’m easy
    Easy like sunday morning

    Annie – The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_dBep_55mI

    Just thinkin’ about
    Tomorrow
    Clears away the cobwebs,
    And the sorrow
    ‘Til there’s none!
    When I’m stuck with a day
    That’s gray,
    And lonely,
    I just stick out my chin
    And Grin,
    And Say,
    Oh
    The sun’ll come out
    Tomorrow
    So ya gotta hang on
    ‘Til tomorrow
    Come what may
    Tomorrow!
    Tomorrow!
    I love ya
    Tomorrow!
    You’re always
    A day
    A way!

    Oh, when the sun beats down and burns the tar up on the roof
    And your shoes get so hot, you wish your tired feet were fireproof
    Under the boardwalk, down by the sea
    On a blanket with my baby is where I’ll be

    (Under the boardwalk) Out of the sun
    (Under the boardwalk) We’ll be havin’ some fun
    (Under the boardwalk) People walking above
    (Under the boardwalk) We’ll be falling in love
    Under the boardwalk, boardwalk

    Israel Kamakawiwo’ole – In This Life

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACAzzEJ57f4

    For all I’ve been blessed with in my life
    There was an emptiness in me
    I was imprisoned by the power of gold
    With one kind touch, you’ve set me free

    Let the world stop turning, let the sun stop burning
    Let them tell me, love’s not worth going through
    If it all falls apart, I will know deep in my heart
    The only dream that mattered had come true
    In this life, I was loved by you

    For every mountain I have climbed
    Every raging river crossed
    You were the treasure that I longed to find
    Without your love I would be lost

    Let the world stop turning, let the sun stop burning
    Let them tell me, love’s not worth going through
    If it all falls apart, I will know deep in my heart
    The only dream that mattered had come true
    In this life, I was loved by you

    I know that I won’t live forever
    But forever I’ll be loving you

    Let the world stop turning, let the sun stop burning
    Let them tell me love’s not worth going through
    If it all falls apart, I will know deep in my heart
    The only dream that mattered had come true
    In this life, I was loved by you
    In this life, I was loved by you

    Goin’ down the old mine with a transistor radio
    Standin’ in the sunlight laughin’

    Slippin’ and slidin’ all along the waterfall with you
    My brown eyed girl

    Cat Stevens, “Morning Has Broken”:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5sSEkZ86ts

    Morning has broken, like the first morning
    Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
    Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
    Praise for the springing fresh from the word

    Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven
    Like the first dew fall, on the first grass
    Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
    Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

    Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
    Born of the one light, Eden saw play
    Praise with elation, praise every morning
    God’s recreation of the new day

    Carpenters – Top of the World

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1u6628Rdqs

    Such a feelin’s comin’ over me
    There is wonder in most every thing I see
    Not a cloud in the sky, got the sun in my eyes
    And I won’t be surprised if it’s a dream

    Everything I want the world to be
    Is now comin’ true especially for me
    And the reason is clear, it’s because you are here
    You’re the nearest thing to Heaven that I’ve seen

    I’m on the top of the world lookin’ down on creation
    And the only explanation I can find
    Is the love that I’ve found ever since you’ve been around
    Your love’s put me at the top of the world

    Somethin’ in the wind has learned my name
    And it’s tellin’ me that things are not the same
    In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze
    There’s a pleasin’ sense of happiness for me

    There is only one wish on my mind
    When this day is through I hope that I will find
    That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me
    All I need will be mine if you are here

    I’m on the top of the world lookin’ down on creation
    And the only explanation I can find
    Is the love that I’ve found ever since you’ve been around
    Your love’s put me at the top of the world

    I’m on the top of the world lookin’ down on creation
    And the only explanation I can find
    Is the love that I’ve found ever since you’ve been around
    Your love’s put me at the top of the world

    We’ve only just begun to live,
    White lace and promises
    A kiss for luck and we’re on our way.
    We’ve just begun.

    Before the rising sun we fly,
    So many roads to choose
    We start out walking and learn to run.
    And yes, We’ve just begun.

    Sharing horizons that are new to us,
    Watching the signs along the way,
    Talking it over just the two of us,
    Working together day to day
    Together.

    And when the evening comes we smile,
    So much of life ahead
    We’ll find a place where there’s room to grow,
    And yes, We’ve just begun.

    Welcome to the sky-

    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,”

    The West coast has the sunshine
    And the girls all get so tanned
    I dig a french bikini on Hawaii island dolls
    By a palm tree in the sand

    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”

    Thanks, @Rod.

    I would have never guessed “Lemon Tree”. LOL.
