Another week gone by and I hope everyone had a good Easter. I was busy and didn’t make any cards this weekend hence no post earlier. Jingle, Jangle, Jungle created this weekly series where you find songs that fit the 3 themes she chose and here are the 3...
A Song With “Face” in the Title
A Song with “Fast” in the Title
A Song with “Fire” in the Title
1. FIRST TIME EVER I SAW YOUR FACE SUNG BY ROBERTA FLACK IN 1972
I heard this song when I was little and thought it was drippy and I would yawn but, over the years, I grew to appreciate the way she sang this. I had no idea that this song was, originally, a folk song written by Scottish Ewan MacColl for his lady love, Peggy Seeger, back in 1957. Roberta Flack made it a huge hit in '72 and was showcased in the Clint Eastwood film, "Play Misty For Me."
2. LIFE IN THE FAST LANE BY THE EAGLES-1976
This is the only song that came into my head so I will look forward to what everyone will choose. It was written by Joe Walsh, Glenn Frey and Don Henley with Walsh being singled out for his guitar riff etc... I just thought it was a cool song.
3. LIGHT MY FIRE BY THE DOORS-RELEASED IN 1967
You must be living under a rock if you don't know this famous song sung by the sexy, sultry, destructive Jim Morrison. I know I first heard this song and other Doors songs from my brother whom I consider an expert when it comes to Rock music, Blues and probably some other genres I am not aware of. My brother would buy the records and, later tapes (yes, cassette tapes) to listen in his car while he drove us to school. I had a huge crush on this Morrison(I know, stand in line) before I even knew he was already dead. What a great song...one of many.
Let's see what you all can come up with.
