Sunday Stealing

Stolen from Pinterest

Name a song that...

1. You enjoy, in another language. "Moja droga jacie kocham means that I love you so." That's from My Melody of Love by Bobby Vinton. I often hear Polish spoken around here, and even though this song is silly, I like the sound of it. 

2. Recently introduced you to a new singer. I had no idea who Luke Combs was until he covered "Fast Car." I love his version.

3. You listen to to energize. "Hang Fire." I usually can't stand the Stones but I enjoy this one. Funny that I listen to it to energize because it's about how nobody ever works and nothing ever gets done.

4. Is your favorite song from a musical. Oh, this would change every time you ask me. Right now, at this very moment, I'll go with The King.

5. Reminds you of an old love. Long, long after "Just the Way You Are" was popular, I loved a man who told me it reminded him of me because I was someone he could really talk to and communicate with. So now whenever I hear it, I think of him.

6. Make you think of one of your children. Barren spinster here.

7. Makes you smile when you hear it. No question! This one. Ba de ya!

8. You love but is quite unknown. "Peaceful" by Helen Reddy.

9. That annoys you. Anything and everything by Barry Manilow, but especially "I Write the Songs." No, "Could It Be Magic?" His overwrought come-come-on-come's in that song make me want to punch him. No, it has to be "Copacabana." He's so obnoxious it's hard to choose!

10. That your parents used to listen to. My parents didn't have the same taste in music, so I don't have a single song for this. 

11. From your early years of childhood. "Stirring and stirring and stirring our brew. Woo woo. Woo woo. Stirring and stirring and stirring our brew. Tip toe, tip toe, tip toe. BOO!"

12. That has a color in the title. "Yellow Submarine."

13. That needs to be played loud. "Helter Skelter."

14. That is perfect for a road trip. "Good as Hell" by Lizzo.

15. That reminds you of yourself. "Free Falling" by Tom Petty. I was in a Key West bar named Cap'n Tony's with my friend Henry and this came on the jukebox. Henry looked at me and said, "She is you." I kind of get it. I am a good girl, I did love my Mama. I am crazy about Elvis and do love Jesus and America, too.  I miss my friend Henry so much!
