GAMBLE EVERYTHING FOR LOVE

Question Of The Week, 01-30-17

What are your favorite song lyrics?
 (Comments are added to this page after you post them.  Thanks for your responses.)


You can enjoy my favorite song and lyrics here. Gamble Everything for Love 

"Here comes the sun"
Today it's Bennie and the Jets. I can't get that out of my head. :)

Right now, the phrase "The long and winding road (that leads to your...door...)" is going through my head when you asked that. Without going to my immediate thought, I have always loved the lyrics to "River" by Joni Mitchell (one of my favorite songs of all time;) "Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on...(I made my baby cry)"

"Hold on tight to your dreams. " by ELO. Besides the lyrics, it has a beat you can't sit still to
Too many to even think about...but for one "Always On My Mind" lyric would have to be right up there!

I love, love, love, the start of the Bryan Adams song that starts with the words, "Put on your best dress darlin' ..."


American Pie, hotel California, stairway to heaven , dream on, horse with no name. I play them on guitar n still forget some verses...I like a cheat sheet of verse opening lines taped to the guitar. Learning southern cross this year. Love the chorus


I don't think I have an absolute favorite lyric. Mostly, they're snippets that pop into my head based on a given moment. For example, the first snippet that popped into my head while writing this was The Beatles opening lines from "I'm Down": You telling lies thinking I can't see. You can't cry 'cause you're laughing at me. I'm down!"
Hold on Tight to Your Dreams by ELO; Last Kiss by Pearl Jam; Lovers Chain by Charlie Landsborough and many, many more
Many different lyrics for different moods but at the moment Eminem's "The Way I Am"

I have many but, this by Waylon & Jessie from Storms never last" is a perennial favorite...

"Storms never last do they baby / Bad times will pass with the winds / Your hand in mine steals the thunder / You make the sun want to shine…"


Like Joey so many songs to think about but I love Elbow's "One day like this" the intro is beautiful.

"So throw those curtains wide. One day like this a year would see me right".

    1. Music is so powerful. Just seeing you write "dream on..." I (can) hear it screamed like he does...in my head. :)

    2. Do you have a YouTube video playing your guitar and singing? I listen to American Pie a lot.

    1. The one I picked is a fairly new one for me. The older ones would be "We'll sing in the sunshine" and "Moon River" and "I was a Highwayman..."

    1. River, you and Arkansas Patti both picked same ones. I believe Hold on tight to your dreams was the only duplication.

    1. LL Cool Joe, that had to be a difficult challenge for you because you have so much music spinning through your head.

  12. Brig, I have to correct you on the spelling of Jessi Coulter's name. I know it is JESSI because my goddaughter is named after her and today is my goddaughter's 40th Birthday:-)
