Pin It


Music I am Listening to At the Moment

Mamma Mia!, but specifically "Super Trouper" more often than not
Featuring the following lyrics:
"Super Trouper
Lights are gonna find me
Shining like the sun
Smiling, having fun
Feeling like a number one"

Yeah! What?

Carrie: The Musical
Featuring the following lyrics:
"Come on, ladies!
I wanna see sweat!
I keep a-lookin' but I ain't seen it yet!"

Poetry, truly.

The song "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree", as performed by Tony Orlando & Dawn, Dean Martin, Perry Como, etc.
Featuring the following lyrics:
"Tie a yellow ribbon 'round the old oak tree
It's been three long years
Do you still want me?
If I don't see a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree
I'll stay on the bus
Forget about us
Put the blame on me
If I don't see a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree"

Aw, that's sweet. But where he has been for three years? What are the other lyrics?
"I'm comin' home, I've done my time"
"I'm really still in prison, my love she holds the key"
"If you received my letter telling you I'd soon be free"

So....this is about a convict? One who apparently isn't innocent? And we don't know what crime he committed? This is just bizarre. Maybe I don't get the whole romanticism of the prison system, but man the 60s and 70s were full of that, weren't they?
