SLS – Other

For this week’s Song Lyric Sunday, I am going with the Marmite girl – Katy Perry. So many of her songs I cannot stand, and yet, some of her tracks are fabulous. Today I have chose a song of hers that I really do like. As always, her videos tell a memorable story. I just […]

SLS – Delightful

I have picked a song for today’s Song Lyric Sunday that was covered a while back by a British pop star. For a long time I was not sure what to make of Robbie Williams. I am still a little uncertain about him. But I know he is hugely popular to many in the UK. […]

SLS – True

Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday theme reminded me of one of the first music bands I remember. I was just a little girl when I first saw the UK television show Top Of The Pops feature a band who would be the reason I fell in love later with Destiny’s Child. English girl group Eternal had […]

SLS – Festival

Jim’s theme for Song Lyric Sunday made me think of one of my favourite classic films. I always loved watching Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong in the sensational “High Society”. Tracy Samantha Lord, played by Grace Kelly, reminds me so much of my mom. As a child, I used to watch […]

SLS – Phony

Jim has picked an interesting Song Lyric Sunday theme today. I had to search for a song to fit the words he chose, and I came across a song I do vaguely remember. In the UK, one of these X-Factor type shows ran a competition to form two groups, a boy band and a girl […]

SLS – Sports

Jim wants us to feature sports songs today. So I decided to go with ice hockey. When we were in Chicago we had so many friends massively into hockey. Ben likes all sports. He loves the atmosphere of going to a game with friends. The Chicago Blackhawks adopted a song by The Fratellis called “Chelsea […]

SLS – Terror

Wen I saw Jim’s theme for today included “fear”, I knew I wanted to pick something from Sia’s album “1000 Forms Of Fear”. There is no denying that Sia is incredibly talented. You would be amazed at the list of hit songs Sia has penned for other artist, but I am so glad she has […]

SLS – Fate

Jim chose an interesting theme for today’s Song Lyric Sunday, including the word “fate”. It took me a while to figure out which song to pick. But in the end I went with a song that is so upbeat it makes me smile from ear to ear. Jason Mraz penned and sang “I’m Yours” and […]

SLS – Beautiful

Cheesy pop music was never better thanks to the Jonas Brothers. When I saw that Jim had chosen a beautiful theme for today, I immediately thought of the song “Jealous” from Nick Jonas. This song is so much fun – pure cheese – but that’s why I like it! Jealousy is such a real thing […]

SLS – Car

By this time next week, I should be back at our base in the UK. I have to admit, I am looking forward to being back in our bed, with our “stuff” around us. Fortunately wherever I go in the world I can take my music with me. There is something very comforting about listening […]
