And here we are…

On day five of the song challenge!

Today, I’m going for BROKE because this whole thing is just about to commence to dust.

Yes my loves, the sun is setting.

The witching hour is near…

But I’m not done having fun.

Bummer!

Now, before I proceed, let me take the time to thank Lisa A from Life of An El Paso Woman for tagging me with this challenge.

She is so awesome!

Thanks Lisa!

Love ya girl!

I’d also like to thank all of the bloggers who decided to participate!

Thanks guys!

Ok, back to the fun…

I thought I might leave you with a couple of  jams that I loved back in the day.

First, I must admit that I have always had a deep love of high drama!  It’s how I get my life!  YAAASSS!

To that end, I give you:

Putting on the Ritz By Taco.  The irony in that video kills me!

And….Mighty Real by Sylvester.

Oh how I wish I could’ve seen him live at Studio 54!!!!!!

RIP dear one! I love this doll!  Did you see him all dapper in his white suit–oh but wait…homeboy twirls around into utter fabulousness!

YAAASSS!

And here’s Boy George and Culture Club with I’ll Tumble for Ya!

Ok, let’s step away from the high drama and take a listen to a couple of my other high school Pop faves:

It’s a Mistake by “the men down under, ” Men at Work

And this GENT who belongs front and center with all of the drama dudes!

Eh… that’s ok he’s in a class all his own!

I give you, David Bowie and China Girl.  RIP sweet David:

YAAASSSS!

Now as we wind down toward the close of the day, I give you a couple of compositions from “The Quiet Beatle.”

He’s my play-pretend guardian angel!

The Late Great George Harrison.

RIP Great one!

Here Comes the Sun:  I think this one is for karaoke 🙂

Billy Preston sings “My Sweet Lord” in tribute to my guy.

George’s son, Dhani, is also playing on this one.

He’s the guitarist that closely resembles our beloved!

Finally, one of my all time favorite George Harrison compositions:

By the way, R&B mega-star, Bobby Womack, did a helluva cover of “Something.”  Go google it!  It’s pretty damn awesome.

Well guys…as I implied before, everything must come to an end.

There are so many more pop/rock/disco-y jams that I wanted to include but there’s no point in running totally amok!

Please play along and do your own song challenge post!

Clearly, I have broken all the rules, especially with this entry… but such is life!

The Lady will now bow and take her leave by dancing off into the sunset to Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic by The Police.

Love and light to you all!

I had a ball!

Lady G

😘  💋

Song Challenge- Day Four

flip-1919645_1920

Speaking of flipping….

The song for today comes from this one cat who flipped the entire freaking script–musically that is!

Don’t believe me?

Well, allow me to present you with:

“Whirly Girl” by Oxo (1983)

The front man for OXO was also one of the same dudes who wrote, produced and performed “Get Off” by Foxy (1978) !

 

Say what????  How can two songs be so different?

Dude flipped from R&B right over to Pop!

It’s called FLEXIBILITY!  An absolute prerequisite for flipping!

LOL!!!!

That doggone Ish Ledesma ain’t no joke!

My kinda dude!

Did he flip the script or what?

Anywhats…

Today is open to any blogger who wishes to participate.  Just follow the rules in my post entitled “Song Challenge-Day One.”

Lady G 😘💋

 

Song Challenge-Day Three

Fractions…

I can’t say that I’ve always been a fan.

At least, not unless there’s something in it for me 🙂

And today there is!!!

So…

Oxford Living Dictionaries defines the term ‘fraction’ thusly:

A numerical quantity that is not a whole number (e.g. 1/2, 0.5).

YAAASSSS!

Now put that under your cap for ’bout 2 seconds. 

For this challenge, the rules say that I’m supposed to choose one song for your listening pleasure.

That said, I’m gonna ride all over the top of that rule by advising you to ONLY listen to 1/5th of each of five of my favorite Pop/Rock jams from my high school days.

Trust me, It makes no difference to me which 1/5th of a jam you choose to listen too. 

FRACTIONS! Get it? 

Five fifths equals one whole!

I think….Oh well!

LOL!

And now here they are….

Too Shy by Kajagoogoo

Head over Heels by Tears for Fears

Our House by Madness (Actually this jam was released a little before I started high school)

New Moon on Monday by Duran Duran

Owner of a Lonely Heart by YES (Not the original lead but a damn good high quality version)

YAAASSS! Lady G believes in staying in compliance. 

So y’all better COMPLY!  LOL!

Today I am going to nominate Cory Melancon and Ellie P to participate in this challenge. Both of these bloggers have very interesting and eclectic styles!

I think you’ll enjoy them!

Cory and Ellie P, you have the freedom not to participate but I sure hope you do!

Lady G

😘💋

 

Song Challenge- Day One

What’s up Lisa A?

I’m sending a huge thanks, a hug and a kiss to you girl for nominating me for the song challenge.

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you already know that I am a huge lover of music so I was MORE than happy to dig right into this challenge.

As always, here are the rules of the road…

 

  • Post a song a day for five consecutive days.
  • Post what the lyrics mean to you.  (Optional)
  • Post the name of the song and video.
  • Nominate 1 or 2 bloggers each day of the challenge.

About a year ago, I started posting my favorite R&B songs in a series called “My Jams.”  It was a real blast!

And so…

For this challenge I decided that I would focus on a few of my favorite Pop/Rock songs.  As with “My Jams,” the order is completely random.

But, in this case, I must abide by the rules and stick to a five song limit.

That said, I have so many Pop/Rock favorites that it would take a lifetime to list them all.

Alas, I am bound by regulations 🙂

Today’s Pop/ Rock jam is actually a Country jam with some R&B influence. It’s by Charlie Daniels who tips his cowboy hat toward my home state of Georgia.

“The Devil Went Down To Georgia”

But did you hear that joker play that rhythm guitar while Charlie slid that devilish bow across the strings on that black fiddle?

FIRE!!!!

Sounded like LIGHTNING!

Wait, does lightning have a sound?

Oh well…thunder then!

Seriously?

For Lady G, a nine-year-old budding violinist, this was the JOINT!!!!

FYI:  The fiddle has a flat bridge and the violin has a round bridge–that difference creates a sorta distinct difference in sound. Hell… at least that’s what my violin teacher said………..

Now if you ask a sistah, the devil won that duel! LOL!

Okaaaaaay?

Anywhats, I nominate my beautiful, crazy, sexy, cool, blonde blue-eyed Georgia homegirl Lennon Carlyle for this challenge.

Lennon, if you’ve already been nominated please forgive me love.
