Hey JPF'ers...

I don't mean to intrude upon the concurrent Neil Young Song Challenge thread, but it occurred to me we've got a virtual goldmine's worth of inspiration heading our way this weekend: Valentine's Day!

Rather than playing around with the ubiquitous word "LOVE" though, I thought it might be more fun and challenging to utilize a looser interpretation of the holiday -- the color RED. It doesn't have to be a love song either. If you have neither the time nor the interest to play along, no worries...hopefully a few folks will be moved to give it a go.

I'll kick things off with this number called "Red Pajamas", which I knocked off in about a half hour's time. I swear, I don't know what loosened up my Muse, but it's like someone dumped some Drano in my brain -- in a good way wink . But without further ado...

"Red Pajamas"
(c) 2015, Beth G. Williams, BMI

My man is always buttoned up
A custom suit, a hint of cuff
Hair and nails, groomed and buffed
A wardrobe made for moving up

I can't say I'm averse to this
My handsome Mr. Business
Hiding all his sexiness
Until he's home and then we kiss ...

But when it's time to take it off, instead I open up the drawer, 'cause ....

There's something 'bout his red pajamas
I simply can't explain
They've got me begging "come to Mama"
All reason's down the drain
Could it be the cat design
That gets me into trouble?
Or that we bought them back in time
When we were first a couple?

They didn't cost a lot of money
And sure they look a little funny
But he wears them for his honey-bunny
Until it's time to get real comfy

And though they end up on the floor, like me, they're always up for more, 'cause ...

There's something 'bout his red pajamas
I simply can't explain
They've got me begging "come to Mama"
All reason's down the drain
Could it be the cat design
That gets me into trouble
Or that we bought them back in time
When we were first a couple?

Whether dressing up or down
Underneath is all that counts
But understand me
With your red jammies
We will always go to town

Yes, there's something 'bout his red pajamas
I simply can't explain
They've got me begging "come to Mama"
All reason's down the drain
Could it be the cat design
That gets me into trouble
Or that we bought them back in time
When we were first a couple?


--------------------------------------------------------------------

I look forward to seeing what you clever kiddos come up with. Good luck and have fun!!

Glad the muse is "a-musing" you lately and on the loose!!! Might be cheating here Beth as this was already written, so maybe I'll put one word in red just to make it fair (where is that rule book I know I had it here somewhere ...) Now you have me curious if I have any other lyrics w/the word red hmmmmmm....

“What Happened To Love”
(c)Lynn Orloff

You used to bring me chocolates
And call me valentine
Hide love notes in my pocket
That I’d so often find
I used to be the first now I’m the last thing on your mind
I wonder what happened to love..

We used to have a future
We made all kinds of plans
I thought I felt a magic
Each time you held my hand
I used to be your woman, and you used to be my man
Oh tell me what happened to love..

Where does love that’s over find it’s resting place
Does it disappear or simply hide it’s face
Could it have an address up on Jupiter or Mars
For I would search to find it if it hides among the stars

You used to say you love me
Make everything so right
You made me feel like someone
Each time you held me tight
But ever since you left, I find that I can’t sleep at night
So tell me what happened, I need to know what happened
Oh tell me what happened……..to love

HIIII Lynn!

Yup, I'm having fun getting back into the thick of things around here. I actually have a couple of lyrics in the pipeline, but I'm trying to pace myself posting them....

In the meantime, thanks a bunch for playing along for the VD challenge. Because it's YOU, I forgive your loose interpretation of the "rules", LOL. I don't recall this song, but it's very sad. A very intriguing premise as well.

So anyhoo, nice to see you around, and Happy Valentine's Day!!

xo,
Beth

Caroll, thank you for this walk down a memory lane for me. This is a road less and less traveled by me as the decades go by. Your voice and words are a perfect combination for both vulnerability and sincerity, culminating in an empathic identification for all listeners.

I offer a bit of fun in counterbalance with my take on a timeless Valentine love story. The Princess and the Frog at passion's Peak.

Not my vocals either on the frog and princess cut. That is Brent Lewis. At 75 he sounds no older than 30.

Just Plain Quotes
"Sometimes reaching a goal earlier than planned is a great achievement. It shows you have worked hard, pushed ahead and made it happen. However, sometimes reaching a goal far past your original deadline, long after you wanted to complete it, and after the accolades you might once have gotten for the achievement are over, it is an even greater achievement. This shows you never gave up, due to adversity, deficit, criticism and those little life detours that end many dreams and goals. In many ways, this is a reason for even more pride!" -Brian Austin Whitney
