This week’s theme is  Best/Better/Good/Great.

~~~~~~~~~~

One of the things I love most about SLS is not just sharing great songs that match the weekly prompt, but also finding new artists and music! Many thanks to Amy at ailovemusic.net for last week’s Midas Hutch and Freeze, and Bee Halton at thebeewrites for Wiyaala and We Are Going and Village Sex! I’m following both artists on Spotify now! Also kudos to Irene at My Slice of Mexico for posting an additional video to show a closer look at a couple doing the traditional folk dance and tying a ribbon with their feet! 🙂 🙂

Known primarily as an award-winning jazz and scat singer, Dianne Reeves spent twelve weeks on Billboard Magazine’s R&B charts with Better Days, a moving recounting of experiences shared with her grandmother and how their relationship became a source of inner strength for Reeves.

Better Days came out of work I had been doing with another songwriter, Tony Lorrich, who coauthored it with me,” she explained. “My grandmother had passed away and so had his mother, so the song is about both of them. And people have even said to me that [‘Better Days’] reminded them of another special relative, maybe an uncle or an aunt.”

FUN FACTS:

  • Dianne Reeves was born into a musical family. Her father sang, her mother played trumpet, her uncle is bassist Charles Burrell, and her cousin is composer/sing-songwriter/producer George Duke.
  • She was a member of her high school band, and while performing at a convention in Chicago was noticed by trumpeter Clark Terry, who invited her to sing with him.
  • Dianne studied classical voice at the University of Colorado and has won five Grammy Awards during her career.

Enjoy!

Song Lyric Sunday | “Heat of the Moment” – After 7

SLS Banner

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  Cool/Freeze/Heat/Melt.

~~~~~~~~~~

Heat of the Moment was one of those songs. When it was released as the lead single from the self-titled debut album of R&B group After 7 in August of 1989, it went all the way to #5 on the Billboard R&B charts but stalled at #74 on the Billboard Hot 100. However, the single re-entered the Hot 100 in late 1990 and went all the way to #19.

The song was co-written by singer/songwriter/record executives Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds and Antonio “L.A.” Reid, founders of LaFace Records. Babyface is also the younger brother of After 7 members Melvin and Kevon Edmonds.

FUN FACTS:

  • Keith Mitchell, the third member of the group, was marketed as the cousin of L.A. Reid. The men were not related. Mitchell was a college buddy of Kevon Edmonds.
  • After 7’s debut album was certified platinum by the RIAA in November 1990.
  • After suffering a stroke in 2011, elder brother, Melvin, had been in poor health, but seemed to rebound in recent years, rejoining the group in 2016 for its comeback album, Timeless. But he died unexpectedly in May of 2019 at the age of 65.

With the temps in Tucson reaching triple digits everyday for over a week, I know how the women in the Heat of the Moment video feel. The guys are trying to hook up and the looks the ladies give them are hilarious!

This week’s theme is  “Maria/Marie/Mary.

~~~~~~~~~~

This is not the song I had queued for this week’s prompt, but after hearing it on a friend’s blog a few days ago, I knew I had to post it. Thanks, Kim!

The haunting lyrics of Devin Marie’s I Can’t Breathe speak to a pain that isn’t new.

It isn’t rare.

It isn’t self-inflicted.

It isn’t justified.

It isn’t DESERVED.

It didn’t start with George Floyd,

but it needs to end now.

If we could stop the pain on our own, we would have centuries ago.

But we cannot do it alone.

It will take all of us,

because despite agendas being promoted,

the issue isn’t black vs. white,

it’s about doing what is right.

Song Lyric Sunday | “Put a Little Love in Your Heart” – Jackie DeShannon

SLS Banner

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  “Jack/John.

~~~~~~~~~~

Leave it to me to take the long route to this week’s prompt! 😀 Instead of title/lyrics, I used the prompt for the artist’s name! 😉

Riding the success of her 1965 hit, What the World Needs Now is Love, Jackie DeShannon released Put a Little Love in Your Heart in the summer of 1969 to a country still mired in Vietnam War protests and racial conflicts. The song reached number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 by August of the same year and number 2 on the Adult Contemporary chart, making it DeShannon’s highest charting release.

I was in grade school during the 60s and sang in my elementary school choir, the all-city elementary school choir and my church choir. EVERYBODY wanted to hear Put a Little Love in Your Heart. It seemed like I was singing it in one choir or another every week for a year!  One of my music teachers said despite the turmoil our country was going through, most people simply wanted peace and hearing a group of 8-10 year olds sing about love went a long way in soothing stressed out adults.

Our country is again steeped in conflict and controversy but I believe most of us simply want peace. Our leadership is failing us and we’ve wasted enough time waiting. To paraphrase another song from school choir, “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me…” and we can start by heeding Jackie’s lyrics from over half a century ago to “Put a little love in your heart.”

FUN FACTS:

  • Jackie co-wrote the song with her brother, Randy and R&B singer/songwriter Jimmy Holiday.
  •  In late 1969, the song reached number one on South Africa’s hit parade.
  • Annie Lennox and Al Green recorded a version that was released as the ending theme song to the 1988 film Scrooged. The song reached number 9 in the US on the Hot 100 in January 1989 and climbed all the way to number 2 on the US Adult Contemporary chart.
  • Put a Little Love in Your Heart has been released by almost two dozen artists including Any Williams, Dolly Parton, the Isley Brothers, and Leonard Nimoy.

I found several videos of Jackie performing the song… all bad! 😀 Jackie never got the hang of lip-syncing but she loves to flash the peace sign! 😀  I also added the Annie Lennox/Al Green cover from Scrooged. Annie and Al have never looked more fab-u-lous!

Enjoy!

Song Lyric Sunday | “Beauty and the Beast” – Peabo Bryson, Celine Dion

SLS Banner

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  “Big/Large/Little/Small/Tall/Tiny.

~~~~~~~~~~

Reaching number nine on Billboards Hot 100, Beauty and the Beast, the theme song from the 1991 Disney animated movie of the same name, not only was an unexpected hit, but it returned the animation company to the pop charts after more than a thirty-year absence.

Disney first recruited solely Dion to record a radio-friendly version of it in order to promote the film. However, the studio was concerned that the then-newcomer would not attract a large enough audience in the United States on her own, so they hired the more prominent Bryson to be her duet partner.

Dion and Bryson’s recording session at The Power Station was filmed and later interpolated with various scenes from the film in order to create the music video.

FUN FACTS:

  • Dion was hesitant to record Beauty and the Beast because she had just recently been fired from recording the theme song of the animated film An American Tail: Fievel Goes West (1991). Powerhouse Linda Ronstadt would get the job.
  • The song garnered the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song at the 49th Golden Globe Awards in January 1992.
  • The American Film Institute ranked Beauty and the Beast 62nd on the organization’s list of the 100 greatest songs in film history. Beauty and the Beast is one of only four songs from Disney animated films to have appeared on the list.
  • Essentially, the song describes the relationship between its two main characters Belle and the Beast, specifically how the couple has learned to accept their differences and in turn change each other for the better. Additionally, the song’s lyrics imply that the feeling of love is as timeless and ageless as a “tale as old as time”.

Enjoy!

Song Lyric Sunday | “Sugar, Sugar” – The Archies

SLS Banner

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  “Cinnamon/Mint/Parsley/Pepper/Rosemary/Sage/Salt/Thyme.

~~~~~~~~~~

If it isn’t spicy… it’s sweet, and I went in the other direction… because I’m me. 😀

Jeff Barry and Andy Kim wrote Sugar, Sugar with preschoolers in mind since that was the audience for the Saturday morning Archie TV show (Barry had children aged 3 and 4 at the time). The “You are my candy girl” line came from them thinking about what kids that age like (candy!). Still, they wanted the song to appeal to adults as well, so they included a line with some weight: “I just can’t believe the loveliness of loving you.”

The song reached No. 1 in the US on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1969, knocking Honky Tonk Women by the Rolling Stones out of the top spot and remained there for four weeks. It was also No.1 on the UK Singles chart in that same year for eight weeks.

Sugar, Sugar was the #1 song of 1969 in the US, according to Billboard’s year-end chart, beating out songs by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Jackson 5, Elvis Presley, David Bowie, and Stevie Wonder. It logged more weeks on the Hot 100 (22) than any other song that year.

In addition to Barry and Kim, “The Archies” included session musicians Toni Wine, Ron Dante and Ellie Greenwich. Kim had a hit in 1974 with Rock Me Gently; Dante produced Mandy for Barry Manilow and Heartbreaker for Pat Benatar. Greenwich and Barry, who were married from 1962-1965, wrote many famous songs, including Be My Baby and Chapel Of Love; Toni Wine wrote the hit songs A Groovy Kind Of Love and Candida.

FUN FACTS:

  • The Archies group was put together by Don Kirshner, a prolific promoter and producer. Kirshner also created The Monkees, and wanted to do the same thing with cartoon characters because they are much easier to work with than people.
  • The line, “Pour a little sugar on me, baby” inspired the title for the 1987 Def Leppard hit Pour Some Sugar On Me.
  • R&B singer Wilson Pickett recorded a cover version of Sugar, Sugar in 1970 that reached #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and No. 4 on the R&B chart. Pickett’s recording was later used in the 1997 film The Ice Storm.
  • Sugar, Sugar wasn’t the first Archies song. The “group” released several singles in 1968, including Bang-Shang-A-Lang, written by Jeff Barry, which went to #22. The follow-up to Sugar, Sugar was Jingle Jangle, which reached #10 and went Gold.

Song Lyric Sunday | “Over and Over” – Puff Johnson

This week’s theme is  “End/Finish/Over/Stop.

~~~~~~~~~~

As the first anniversary of my husband’s passing approaches next weekend, I’m just as surprised at how fast the year has gone as I am how far I’ve come.
On my worst days when I wanted to hide under the covers or veg out in a corner, I could hear Den saying, “Nope. That’s not an option. Get up and get moving, babe.”
There were days I was grateful for the push, but there were still times when I was resentful and angry. It was during those times, I seem to be more aware of Den’s presence, patient and practical, guiding me to do things over and over again to find a rhythm and my flow again… to get back to me.
I used Over and Over by Ewanya “Puff” Johnson in February of 2017 for the “hills and mountains” prompt, but I’ve been playing it daily for the last few months for its driving motivation to keep going. To live and not simply exist. It also makes me smile remembering how much Den teased me about playing it.

Sometimes memories are all we have, but they come to mind just when we need them the most.

Over and Over appeared on the soundtrack of The First Wives Club in 1996. Released as a single in Europe and Australia, it was a Top 20 hit on both continents.

FUN FACTS:

  • After finishing a tour in 2009, Puff stayed in South Africa for a year because of the nice treatment she received. Puff said she’d had never met people as friendly and welcoming as South Africans. She and her music are still popular there seven years after her death.
  • Puff toured Europe in 1997 as an opening act for Michael Jackson.
  • Her 1996 critically acclaimed debut album, Miracle, was produced by Randy Jackson of American Idol-fame.
  • This talented young artist’s life was cut short far too soon. The Detroit native died in 2013 after a seven-year battle with cervical cancer.

This week’s theme is  Song that includes a number.

~~~

British rock band Queen are not just legendary music icons, but their music is a big part pf pop culture. From We Will Rock You to We Are the Champions to Bohemian Rhapsody, their music is timeless, encompassing generations.

Any mention of their contributions to pop culture wouldn’t be complete without the world-wide hit, Another One Bites the Dust. Released in October of 1980, it spent three weeks at number one. The song spent 15 weeks in the Billboard top 10 (the longest running top ten song of 1980), including 13 weeks in the top five, and 31 weeks total on the chart (more than any other song in 1980).

Another One Bites the Dust won an American Music Award for Favorite Rock Single and also garnered a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.

 

FUN FACTS:

  • Another One Bites the Dust is credited as Queen’s best-selling single, with sales of over 7 million copies.
  • John Deacon’s bass line was inspired by Good Times by the disco group Chic.
  • The song was used in a preliminary cut of Rocky III, before being replaced by Survivor’s Eye of the Tiger.
  • The music video for Another One Bites the Dust was filmed at Reunion Arena in Dallas, Texas.

Song Lyric Sunday | “I Believe in You and Me” – Whitney Houston

SLS Banner

~~~

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  Couple/Together/Us.

~~~

While it doesn’t contain any of this week’s words prompts, my SLS choice is indeed about two people… a couple.

Much like her Grammy-winning I Will Always Love You was a cover of a Dolly Parton hit, Whitney Houston’s 1996 top five pop hit was also a cover.

I Believe in You and Me was first released by the Four Tops in 1983. While it failed to reach the US Top 40, it became a moderate hit for the group on the US Billboard R&B chart, peaking at number 40 in early 1983.

In 1996, Whitney recorded a cover of the song for her film The Preacher’s Wife and released it as a single. Following its release, the song charted on the Billboard Hot 100, Adult Contemporary, and R&B boards in the US, also peaking on music charts worldwide.

Houston was known as “The Voice” and due to the bigger success of her version, I Believe in You and Me is most popularly known as a Whitney Houston song. However, the song’s co-composer David Wolfert, stated in a 2001 interview that young songwriters, referring to the song, told him: “Oh, you wrote that Whitney song.” He stated, “I said, ‘That’s not really a Whitney song,’ and play them the (Four Tops) original. Their mouths drop open. No one is going to sing that song like Levi—ever.”

 

FUN FACTS:

  • I Believe in You and Me, the first single from The Preacher’s Wife Soundtrack, debuted at number seven and number six, on the US Billboard Hot 100 and Hot R&B Singles charts, the issue date of December 28, 1996, respectively.
  •  Houston received a Grammy nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for her performance of the song at the 40th Annual Grammy Awards on February 25, 1998.
  • The single was certified Platinum for the shipments of 1,000,000 copies or more by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on February 4, 1997, becoming Houston’s fourth Platinum single.
  • Houston starred in the holiday comedy The Preacher’s Wife, with Denzel Washington. She plays the gospel-singing wife of a pastor (Courtney B. Vance). It was largely an updated remake of the 1948 film The Bishop’s Wife, which starred Loretta Young, David Niven and Cary Grant.

I Believe in You and Me

I believe in you and me
I believe that we will be
In love eternally
As far as I can see
You will always be
The one for me
Oh yes you will
I believe in dreams again
I believe that love will never end
And like the river finds the sea
I was lost now I’m free
I believe in you and me
I will never leave your side
I will never hurt your pride
When all the chips are down
I will always be around
Just to be right there where you are my love
Oh I love you boy
I will never leave you out
I will always let you in
To places no one’s ever been
Deep inside can’t you see
I believe in you and me
Maybe I’m a fool
To feel the way I do
But I would play the fool forever
Just to be with you forever
I believe in miracles
Love’s a miracle
And baby you’re a dream come true
I was lost now I’m free
I believe in you and me
I was lost now I’m free
I believe in you and me

Song Lyric Sunday | “Macarena” – Los del Rio

SLS Banner

~~~

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  Burrito/Fajita/Mexican/Tequila.

~~~

I chose a song this week in keeping with the spirit of the prompts and Cinco de Mayo!

Ranked No. 1 on Billboard’s All Time Latin Songs, No. 7 on Billboard’s All Time Top 100, and VH1’s “#1 Greatest One-Hit Wonder of All Time,” Los del Rio’s Macarena is the song and dance craze that took the world by storm in the 1990s.

As a result of their lounge act, Los del Río were invited to tour South America in 1992 and, while visiting Venezuela, they were invited to a private party held by the Venezuelan empresario Gustavo Cisneros. During the celebration, a local flamenco teacher performed a dance for the guests, and Los del Río were pleasantly surprised by Cubillán’s dance skills. Spontaneously, Antonio Romero Monge, one half of the Los del Río duo, recited the song’s chorus-to-be on the spot. When the authors wrote the song, they changed the name to Macarena, in honor to Antonio’s daughter Esperanza Macarena.

The Bayside Boys released an English-language version in 1995 that became a worldwide sensation, reaching the top of the charts in more than a dozen countries and landing in the top ten in several others.

However, it was the Latin version that could be heard from elementary school dances to night clubs to wedding receptions. Most English-speakers had no idea about how risque the lyrics are.

In the song, the Macarena is a word used to describe a woman who is attempting to get men to come and dance with her.

If she likes their moves, the Macarena claims she’s happy to take them home after the night out.

The first verse begins: “When I dance they call me Macarena, and the boys they say ‘que estoy buena’

“They all want me, they can’t have me. Move with me, jam with me.

“And if you’re good I’ll take you home with me.”

While the first verse is a little cheeky, the song gets even raunchier as it goes on.

The main singer admits that even though she is enjoying the male attention on the dancefloor, she already has a boyfriend who is called Vittorino.

The lyrics assure: “Now, don’t you worry ‘bout my boyfriend, the boy whose name is Vittorino.

“Ha, I don’t want him, couldn’t stand him, he was no good so I.”

 

FUN FACTS:

  • The “Bayside Boys Mix” version’s meaning is later revealed to be about a woman who cheats on her boyfriend while he is being drafted into the army.
  • The Bayside Boys remix hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 1996 and remained at the top of the chart for fourteen weeks.
  • The song stayed in the Hot 100 chart for 60 weeks, the longest reign among No. 1 songs, only surpassed fifteen years later by Adele’s Rolling in the Deep.

While the Bayside Boys’ version is the more popular in the music world, I prefer Los Del Rios, and the video is a live performance from a Spanish-language show.

Enjoy!
