This week we have some general words that are used to describe object placement, being Above/Below/Between and hopefully everyone will be able to find a song that utilizes one of these prompt words in the title or in the lyrics.

Above makes me think of Lady Gaga’s Sine From Above.

Songwriters: Stefani Germanotta / Vincent Pontare / Salem Al Fakir / Benjamin Rice / Rami Yacoub / Mike Tucker / Axel Christofer Hedfors / Ryan Benjamin Tedder / Johannes Klahr / Elton John
I found the lyrics interesting because of the way Lady Gaga and Elton John chose to present them. There’s no doubt in mind they approached it with awards in mind.  Elton John singing with an EDM background is iconic.

My second song  is I See Fire by Ed Sheerhan which he also wrote.  The word below appears in the very first line but it’s further in song that appeals to me. And I see fire, hollowing souls And I see fire, blood in the breeze And I hope that you’ll remember me. because of when I heard it in the Hobbit, The Desolation of Smaug. It’s placement added a thought provoking conclusion to the movie.
My third song is In Between by Scott McCreery. He’s also one of the songwriters. Songwriters: Jonathan David Singleton / Jessi Leigh Alexander / Scotty McCreery / Frank Rogers. My favorite lines are  I ain’t all holy water, and I ain’t all Jim Beam. I’m somewhere in between. I can relate. I’m a mix for sure.
But then I remembered the song I heard with my granddaughter, the Prepositions Song.  She’s seven and love listening to all the children’s song on youtube that are educational.
Word placement is challenging to learn when you are English speaker, ten times worse if you’re not a native speaker.
I don’t know what is going on but the links wouldn’t show. WordPress leaves a lot to be desired at times.

# Sunday Song Lyric

  1. Great selection of music. The melody of Lady Gaga song reminded me a little bit like the soundtrack from “Night at the Roxbury”. I love Ed Sheerhan and Scotty McCreery. My mom was still alive when Scotty won American Idol and she absolutely loved him. Yesterday was her birthday. She would have been 74 so this was just perfect. I’m late getting back to all the SLS from yesterday. 🙂
