We used to have a thread like this over at PTS, when I was a mod there.
Some folks love it, some hate it, some don't give a rat's patootey about it.

Basically, you just come in here and sing.
Whether it's a song that is stuck in your head, one you've always loved, or a tune that suits your mood...
Just let loose and share it with us!
All you do is post the name of the song, the singer, a dedication if you'd like & the lyrics.
YouTube videos are optional but welcome.
And since we're all friends here, I have no doubt you'll receive plenty of kudos and applause for your performance.

I shall start...

This one goes out to precious Elle...because I can't help thinking of NY without thinking of my dear friend anymore.
I love this song and always have.

New York State of Mind by Billy Joel

Some folks like to get away,
Take a holiday from the neighborhood.
Hop a flight to Miami Beach or to Hollywood.
But I'm takin' a Greyhound on the Hudson River line.
I'm in a New York state of mind.

I've seen all the movie stars in their fancy cars and their limousines.
Been high in the Rockys under the evergreens.
I know what I'm needin', and I don't wanna waste more time.
I'm in a New York state of mind.

It was so easy livin' day by day
Out of touch with the rhythym and blues
But now I need a little give and take
The New York Times, the Daily News.

It comes down to reality, and it's fine with me cause I've let it slide.
I don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside.
I don't have any reasons.
I left them all behind.
I'm in a New York state of mind.
Oh yeah.

It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythym and blues
But now I need a little give and take
The New York Times, the Daily News.
Who, oh, oh whoa who.

It comes down to reality, and it's fine with me cause I've let it slide.
I don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside.
I don't have any reasons.
I left them all behind.
I'm in a New York state of mind.

I'm just taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River line.
Cause I'm in a, I'm in a New York state of mind.

Awww...thank you, Sugah!

I love this idea. Right now I don't have any melodies in my head, but be warned, I will be back.

Why, thank you, ma'am. I used to be a big fan of Billy Joel. I still enjoy listening to his cds.

Does anyone else care to step up to the microphone?

I really like this song and it has been stuck in my head for the past couple of days... and I dedicate it to all my friends here!!

"You've Got A Friend" -James Taylor

When your down and troubled

And you need a helping hand

And nothing, whoa nothing is going right.

Close your eyes and think of me

And soon I will be there


To brighten up even your darkest nights.

You just call out my name,

And you know where ever I am

I'll come running, oh yeah baby

To see you again.


Winter, spring , summer, or fall,

All you have to do is call

And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.

You've got a friend.


If the sky above you

Should turn dark and full of clouds

And that old north wind should begin to blow

Keep your head together and call my name out loud

And soon I will be knocking upon your door.


You just call out my name and you know where ever I am

I'll come running to see you again.

Winter, Spring, summer or fall

All you got to do is call

And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.


Hey, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend?

People can be so cold.

They'll hurt you and desert you.

Well they'll take your soul if you let them.

Oh yeah, but don't you let them.


You just call out my name and you know wherever I am

I'll come running to see you again.

Oh babe, don't you know that,

Winter Spring summer or fall,

Hey now, all you've got to do is call.


Lord, I'll be there, yes I will.

You've got a friend.

You've got a friend.

Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.

Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.

You've got a friend.

Awww...great job, Jen!
Thank you for the sweet dedication and for singing to us first thing Monday morn.

This song was the first one hubby and I danced to at our wedding.
It's "our song" and was I surprised to hear it played during the movie Julie and Julia!
I got all verklempt, as I loved that movie and RARELY (if ever) hear this song.
It's just so beautiful in it's simplicity.

Time After Time - written by Sammy Cahn -as sung by Tony Bennett

What good are words I say to you?
They can't convey to you what's in my heart
If you could hear instead
The things I've left unsaid

Time after time
I tell myself that I'm
So lucky to be loving you

So lucky to be
The one you run to see
In the evening, when the day is through

I only know what I know
The passing years will show
You've kept my love so young, so new

And time after time
You'll hear me say that I'm
So lucky to be loving you

Awww... what a great song Sugah. It is so sweet and beautiful. What a great song to dance to at your wedding.

Seeing how my sweetie and I loved The Beatles I will share one of our favorite songs. He learned to play this on the guitar for me. It's been in my head somewhat today as well as the James Taylor one.

Something


Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover,
Something in the way she woos me.

I don't want to leave her now,
You know I believe and how.

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don't need no other lover.
Something in her style that shows me.

I don't want to leave her now,
You know I believe and how.

You're asking me will my love grow,
I don't know, I don't know.

You stick around now it may show,
I don't know, I don't know.

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her,
Something in the things she shows me.
I don't want to leave her now,

You know I believe and how.

Oh, Jen. I must confess I have never been a big Beatles fan, but I do love that song.
How romantic that Ted learned how to play it on guitar for you!

Since you were so kind to step up to the mike again, I'd like to dedicate this next song to YOU.
It's one of my very favorite Beatles songs and I hope it's one of yours.

I love this song.

In My Life as sung by The Beatles

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain

All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends, I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life, I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life, I'll love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life, I'll love you more

After reading the last few posts, even though the songs have nothing to do with him, it put me in the mood to hear some Elton John. The following song is playing as I type.

Something About the Way You Look Tonight, Sir Elton John

There was a time
I was everything and nothing all in one
When you found me
I was feeling like a cloud across the sun

I need to tell you
How you light up every second of the day
But in the moonlight
You just shine like a beacon on the bay

And I can't explain
But it's something about the way you look tonight
Takes my breath away
It's that feeling I get about you, deep inside
And I can't describe
But it's something about the way you look tonight
Takes my breath away
The way you look tonight

With your smile
You pull the deepest secrets from my heart
In all honesty
I'm speechless and I don't know where to start

And I can't explain
But it's something about the way you look tonight
Takes my breath away
It's that feeling I get about you, deep inside
And I can't describe
But it's something about the way you look tonight
Takes my breath away
The way you look tonight.

Oh such great song choices. I am a HUGE lover of music, a friend of mine turned me onto this group a few years ago and I fell in love. I don't really know how to describe what genre they go in ... not complete alternative nor complete anything else. They have their own style


"Sing For Absolution" -Muse



lips are turning blue
a kiss that can't renew
I only dream of you
my beautiful

tiptoe to your room
a starlight in the gloom
I only dream of you
and you never knew

sing for absolution
I will be singing
And falling from your grace

there's nowhere left to hide
in no one to confide
the truth burns deep inside
and will never die

lips are turning blue
a kiss that can't renew
I only dream of you
my beautiful

sing for absolution
I will be singing
And falling from your grace

sing for absolution
I will be singing
And falling from your grace

our wrongs remain unrectified
and our souls won't be exhumed

Everything the man does is golden, at least in my opinion.

I am going to look up this group you just listed, Jen. When I read the lyrics, they sounded familiar, but I can't place them or get a melody going. I am sure I have heard this. I love the sentiment of the song. I love you

I think I was the biggest Elton John and Billy Joel fan (simultaneously during the late 70s thru the 80s) EVER!
I still enjoy listening to their music from time to time.
Thank you for singing to us, ladies.

A few days back, I listened to Muse's YouTube video of Sing For Absolution.
That band is completely new to me. Have they been around long?
I agree with Elle. I like the sentiment of the song you sang to us.

That reminded me about when I was very little and my mom bought Elton John's Greatest Hits album. I used to have her play it over and over and I would just lay in the floor by the speakers and sing my heart out to it...lol. I have always loved him and my sister is a HUGE Billy Joel fan...

Muse has been around a few years, since 1994. One of my friends introduced me to them about three or four years ago and I instantly liked them. They put on an awesome live show perfomace too. I got to see them in concert when they opened for U2

Thanks for providing the link. The way the band sings it still doesn't sound familiar. My thought is that I heard someone do their own rendition of it somewhere because the lyrics sound really familiar. Either way, it's a beautiful sentiment.

I love Billy Joel, too. I think we have a "man with a piano" thing going on here.

I heard this song on the radio yesterday and forgot how much I like it.
Hopefully, I can do it justice as I step up to the mike...

"Breathe (2 AM)" as sung by Anna Nalick

2 AM and she calls me 'cause I'm still awake,
"Can you help me unravel my latest mistake?,
I don't love him. Winter just wasn't my season"
Yeah we walk through the doors, so accusing their eyes
Like they have any right at all to criticize,
Hypocrites. You're all here for the very same reason

'Cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button, girl.
So cradle your head in your hands
And breathe... just breathe,
Oh breathe, just breathe

May he turned 21 on the base at Fort Bliss
"Just a day" he said down to the flask in his fist,
"Ain't been sober, since maybe October of last year."
Here in town you can tell he's been down for a while,
But, my God, it's so beautiful when the boy smiles,
Wanna hold him. Maybe I'll just sing about it.

Cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable,
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table.
No one can find the rewind button, boys,
So cradle your head in your hands,
And breathe... just breathe,
Oh breathe, just breathe

There's a light at each end of this tunnel,
You shout 'cause you're just as far in as you'll ever be out
And these mistakes you've made, you'll just make them again
If you only try turning around.

2 AM and I'm still awake, writing a song
If I get it all down on paper, it's no longer inside of me,
Threatening the life it belongs to
And I feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd
Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud
And I know that you'll use them, however you want to

But you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable,
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button now
Sing it if you understand.
and breathe, just breathe
woah breathe, just breathe,
Oh breathe, just breathe,
Oh breathe, just breathe.

I'll have to give that song a listen Sugah. I like the lyrics.

I'll play along.

This is probably lyrically my favorite song, ever. To me it's what love should be and I've said for over a decade now, that if I ever get married - this will be the song played as we walk down the aisle.

It's a Najee song, sung by Freddie Jackson called "All I'll Ever Ask"

Love means so many different things
But you're all that matters
And this is all Ill ever ask of you

Tell me your dreams, so they can be mine too
Let me be there to help them come true

Tell me your fears, when you feel afraid
Come to my arms let me rock them away

Thats all I'll ever ask,
Thats all I'll ever ask,
Thats all I'll every ask of you

Come to my shoulder when you need to weep
Wake me up, when you cannot sleep

Talk to me, when you want to be heard
Be silent with me, when you cant say a word

Thats all I'll ever ask,
Thats all I'll ever ask,
Thats all I'll every ask of you


I can't swear you'll never have to cry another tear
But when you want someone to hold you
I'm always right here

So just come to me, for anything at all
Call my name, it's yours to call


Feel my faith in you when you can't find your own
And always remember that you're never alone

Thats all I'll ever ask,
Thats all I'll ever ask,
Thats all I'll every ask of you
~~~

I also recommend a listen so you can really feel the power of the lyrics.
