Get Into My Car

I know it is late, but I have been looking through the songs that other bloggers chose for today’s Song Lyric Sunday car theme, and I had to add one that came into my head.

This is the hugely successful “Get Outta My Dreams (Get Into My Car)” from the fantastic Billy Ocean.

GET OUTTA MY DREAMS

Hey (hey) you (you), get into my car
Who me?
Yes you, get into my car
Wooooooooooooooh. Wah! Yeah!

Who's that lady
Coming down the road
Who's that lady
Who's that woman
Walking through my door
What's the score
I'll be the sun
Shining on you
Hey Cinderella
Step in your shoe
I'll be your non-stop lover
Get it while you can
Your non-stop miracle
I'm your man

Get outta my dreams
Get into my car
Get outta my dreams
Get in the back seat baby
Get into my car
Beep beep, yeah
Get outta my mind
Get into my life
Oooooooooh
Oh I said hey (Hey) you (You)
Get into my car

Oh baby

Lady driver
Let me take your wheel
Smooth operator
Touch my bumper (Bumper)
Hey, let's make a deal
Make it real
Like a road runner
Coming after you
Just like a hero
Outta the blue
I'll be your non-stop lover
Get it while you can
Your non-stop miracle
I'm your man

Get outta my dreams
Get into my car
Get outta my dreams
Get in the back seat baby
Get into my car
Beep beep, yeah
Get outta my mind
Get into my life
Oooooooooh
Oh I said hey (Hey) you (You)
Get into my car

Oh baby, let's go

I said open the door
(Get in the back)
Tread on the floor
(Get on the track)

Yeah (Yeah) Yeah (Yeah)
Yeah (Yeah) Yeah (Yeah)
Let's go

Oh baby
Ooooh, woooow, yeah

I'll be the sun
Shining on you
Hey Cinderella
Step in your shoe
I'll be your non-stop lover
Get it while you can
Your non-stop miracle
I'm your man

Get outta my... Get outta my...
Get outta my dreams
Get into my car
Get outta my dreams
Get in the back seat baby
Get into my car
Beep beep, yeah
Get outta my mind
Get into my life
Oooooooooh
Oh I said hey (Hey) you (You)
Get into my, hey (Hey) you (You)
Get into my, hey (Hey) you (You)
Get into my car

I Try To Say Goodbye And I Choke

It is so hot here! I am trying to stay as still as possible and drinking water constantly. I saw Jim’s theme for Song Lyric Sunday is break up songs. I googled break up songs for inspiration and an old favourite popped up. Although to be honest, I never thought of this song as a break up song.

Macy Gray’s awesome voice really sets fire to this song “I Try”. When you read through the lyrics, I suppose they could possibly fit the “breakup” category, or maybe it is more of an unrequited love scenario? You can decide that.

It’s a brilliant track which is why I am featuring it today!

Games, changes, and fears
When will they go from here?
When will they stop?
I believe that fate has brought us here
And we should be together, babe
But we're not

I play it off, but I'm dreaming of you
I'll keep my cool, but I'm fiendin

I try to say goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

I may appear to be free
But I'm just a prisoner of your love
I may seem alright and smile when you leave
But my smiles are just a front, just a front

I play it off, but I'm dreaming of you
I'll keep my cool, but I'm fiendin

I try to say goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

Here is my confession
May I be your possession
Boy, I need your touch
Your love kisses, and such
With all my might I try
But this I can't deny, deny

I play it off, but I'm dreaming of you
I'll keep my cool, but I'm fiendin

I try to say goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

Saturday Snaps

Last summer, there were no festivals or agricultural shows. Normally we visit these huge events and wander around all of the tents during the day time and enjoy the live music at various stages dotted around the site.

I cannot even remember which event this was from, although I am pretty sure it was when I was visiting family in the Midlands. All I recall was that they had a food tent, and the first stall we came to was pure tea and cake. We did not get past it! We all ordered huge wedges of cake and sat on the grass feeding out bellies and sipping hot tea in the sunshine.

That was all the energy we needed to go and check out one of the nearest music tent where we danced along to Punjabi drummers!

If all goes to plan, Wimbledon Tennis Championships should begin on Monday. I live in South London, and Wimbledon is not really that far away – about forty minutes on the bus.

We took some friends from Ghana over to see the world famous tennis club. We wandered into the grounds and took some photos and went into the shop. Our friends had expressed interest in doing a tour of the grounds, but it would have worked out as very expensive. There was a group of us and I think it worked out as over £300 for us all to go on the tour.

Not wanting to split up, we contented ourselves with wandering over to the Park across the road and hanging out in the sunshine. We ate our food there and played sports all afternoon.

But I have a handful of the photographs I took that day.

This is a photo of Port Adelaide, which we visited on our trip to South Australia. Like so many ports, it brought vital imports and information into Adelaide for decades, but then experienced a significant slowdown.

It has since benefited from reinvestment making it a enjoyable location to visit. It hosts some beautiful buildings and museums to visit. We followed internet recommendations to find a restaurant where we shared a huge platter of tapas style snacks. It was a great location for tourists with time on their hands.

Post-Holiday Blues

Last week, we had our first holiday in over a year. I cannot tell you how great it was to feel like a tourist, even though we did not leave England. It was fun though. Eating ice-cream, visiting places of interest, hitting the beach when the weather improved at the weekend…it was fun.

Probably because of not having had a holiday in a long time, and the stresses of the past year – we just enjoyed every moment.

I have come back feeling refreshed, at peace, happy, energized and I have today to soak up more sun before I am back at work tomorrow. Normally I get post-holiday blues after being away. Right now I still feel as if I have had a big hug from nature and the good old British tourism industry, who gave us a great welcome. People were much friendlier than I expected, and it felt good.

It might take me a while to get myself back into routine with my blog. But I just wanted to touch base with you to say I am still here, and feeling great after the escape we just had.

Another memory from trips to Liverpool. The Albert Docks are an amazing place for tourists and visitors to explore. One of the very popular features is a museum called The Beatles Story, where you can learn so much about the fab four and how their lives changed when they were catapulted to super-stardom.

Impossible to mention The Beatles without enjoying some of their music!

Tuesday News

So this week, I don’t have a media news report to share with you. Instead I am updating you on my news. I am going on holiday. It is a UK holiday. I can’t wait for a change of scene though!!

You might notice my blog is a little quieter this week. Just don’t want to be worrying about blogging when I am trying to relax.

By the time this post is published, I will be away already. So I will catch you when I am back and tell you all about it! Happy days!

Manic Monday

I have two words for you:

ALARM CLOCKS

How is it that if they are going to fail, it is most likely to be on a Monday morning? I really really hate turning up late for work on a Monday. It means the week starts on a low note – my manager is grumpy with me, my colleagues giving me sideways glances, customers somehow detecting the awkward atmosphere in the Pharmacy.
