I Speak In Song Titles

AUTHORS NOTE: Do you speak another language? I do. I speak in “song title”. Nearly every word or phrase in the article below is a song title and each is linked to it’s appropriate YouTube video. Enjoy. :)

Every day’s a new day in this circle of life and everywhere I go I got the music in me even if I’m just dancing with myselfEverything you touch is a song. Each tune and lyric is an imitation of life where you come as you are.

Who knew music could make you feel like makin’ love when you’re so damn hot burning with Saturday night fever only to go running on empty first thing Sunday morning looking for a D.I.V.O.R.C.E.?

Humph, I guess that’s why they call it the blues, summertime or otherwise.

The sweet pain and misery after one bourbon one scotch one beer and that jagged little pill will make you feel like the wreck of the day and sorry seems to be the hardest word, but don’t give up. Turn on the radio and let yourself go instead.

The voice within knows you are desperate, but not serious and music will keep you comfortably numb with a silly little love song while you’re ridin’ the storm out to its bittersweet conclusion.

It’s the pleasure principal silly and that crazy bitch and those Dirty rotten bastards playing mind games can’t take away your song. Don’t stop believing because you are wonderful.

But anyway, till we meet again. It’s time for me to fly!

With much R.E.S.P.E.C.T.,

      hahahaha nope, I giggle or GOL because I catch myself saying something and it’s a song title or I am in a place or situation and a song title comes to mind. Our mind works in such an interesting way.

    I usually talk in movie quotes so I had a lot of fun reading this. It made me remember some really good songs.
