Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 5/20/18

When I first started doing this, I picked a lot of ideas as the theme, rather than a word.  I’m not sure when it changed to words as the theme, but it seemed easier to actually come up with a theme when it was just a word.  However, I had some help this week and I’m really excited about the suggestion, since it will be slightly different than what we’ve been used to.

I hope you will all hop over to Kirstwrites blog this week and give her a huge thanks for keeping things interesting around here this week.

So, let’s just get right to it.  Put your thinking caps on, break out your playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week, brought to us by the lovely Kirstwrites, is “a song from an artist/singer who shares your name”.   While this might be a difficult challenge, you could always just post a favorite song if you aren’t able to find an artist/singer that shares your name along with a song you like.  We’ve got to make it difficult sometimes, right?

As always, you can go your own way and post a song that has nothing to do with the prompt.  We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!

If you would like to suggest a theme, I am open to suggestions.   Please either pop it in the comments or send me an email at

Here are the “rules”:

  • Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not
  • Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due and it’s honestly just a simple Google search
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and provide a link to where you found the lyrics
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song
  • Ping back to this post or my own Song Lyric Sunday post
  • Read at least one other person’s blog so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process

  14. What a fun challenge. I was stumped at first, then I remembered my country days and Lorrie Morgan, even the same spelling of my first name. There was one song that I remember from way back when, “I’m Looking for Something in Red.” So here is my selection for SLS this week. Have a great Sunday.
    Written by Angela Kaset from Google

    I’m looking for something in red
    Something that’s shocking to turn someone’s head
    Strapless and sequined and cut down to there
    Stockings and garters and lace underwear
    The guaranteed number to knock the men dead
    I’m looking for something in red
    I’m looking for something I green
    Something to out do an ex-high school queen
    Jealousy comes in the color of jade
    Do you have some pumps and a purse in this shade
    And a perfume that whispers “Please comes back to me”
    I’m looking for something in green
    I’m looking for something in white
    Something that shimmers in soft candlelight
    Everyone calls us the most perfect pair
    Should I wear a veil or a rose in my hair
    Well, the train must be long and the waist must be tight
    I’m looking for something in white
    I’m looking for something in blue
    Something real tiny, the baby’s brand new
    He has his father’s nose and his chin
    We once were hot lovers now we’re more like friends
    Don’t tell me that’s just what old married folk do
    I’m looking for something in blue
    I’m looking for something in red
    Like the one that I wore when I first turned his head
    Strapless and sequined and cut down to there
    Just a size larger that I wore last year
    The guaranteed number to knock the nam dead
    I’m looking for something
    I’ve gotta have something
    I’m looking for something in red

  19. I am not able to post mine today because there is some work being done behind the scenes on my blog and I can’t put up anything new until it is done. I don’t know of any artist with my name, but there is a song that has a lot of important meaning to me and my name. I look forward to posting as soon as I can!

  20. I have an idea for a SLS prompt and it could work out into being a whole month of prompts. You could call this Figurative Language SLS month. Many song writers use figurative language as a way to engage their listeners. Week one the prompt would be to find a song with lyrics that feature a Simile and next week would be Metaphor followed by Hyperbole and finishing up with an Onomatopoeia. If this goes well you could continue with others like alliteration, idioms, irony, oxymoron, personification, puns, symbolism and synecdoche.
