Lyrically Speaking - 1/5/21

#1 Post by littlebeast13 » Tue Jan 05, 2021 4:51 am

No matter how much I unravel the classic format that dominated the LSWE's heyday, I just can't seem to part with Tuesday Wordplay. It's perfectly fine to have a theme on Wednesday, or a Merry Man host on Monday.... but songs that all have a common word in the title? That's stuck on Tuesday, maybe the most underrated day of the week to those not named Wimpy or Sheryl Crow. Here's the first Tuesday Wordplay of the 2021 LSWE...

1 point for the title, 1 point for the artist...


1. I heard you on the wireless back in fifty-two
Lying awake intently tuning in on you
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through

2. Born a man-child of the sun, yeah
Yeah, saw my work had just begun
Yeah, found I had to stand alone, yeah
Well, bless it now, I've got my own
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah

3. It's a cool place and they say it gets colder
You're bundled up now but wait 'til you get older
But the meteor men beg to differ
Judging by the hole in the satellite picture

4. Come on, shine your heavenly body tonight
'Cause I know you're gonna make everything all right

5. I hear your name whispered on the wind
It's a sound that makes me cry
I hear a song blow again and again
Through my mind and I don't know why

6. Til the sun that loves you proud
When the system tries to bring you down
Every hand to shine tonight
You dont need darkness to do what you think is right

7. Oooh, it's a killing machine
It's got everything
Like a driving power
Big fat tires and everything

8. Johnny made a record
Went straight up to number one
Suddenly, everyone loved to
Hear him sing the song

9. Love songs written for you
It's been going down for years
But to sing what's in my heart
Seems more honest than the tears

10. Just think of all the moments that we'd spent
I just can't let you go for you, you were meant

11. You can come as you are with just your heart
And I'll take you in though you're rejected and hurt

12. It's life, Jim
But not as we know it
Not as we know it
Not as we know it
It's life, Jim
But not as we know it
Not as we know it, Captain

11. You can come as you are with just your heart
And I'll take you in though you're rejected and hurt

No matter how much I unravel the classic format that dominated the LSWE's heyday, I just can't seem to part with Tuesday Wordplay. It's perfectly fine to have a theme on Wednesday, or a Merry Man host on Monday.... but songs that all have a common word in the title? That's stuck on Tuesday, maybe the most underrated day of the week to those not named Wimpy or Sheryl Crow. Here's the first Tuesday Wordplay of the 2021 LSWE...

1 point for the title, 1 point for the artist...


1. I heard you on the wireless back in fifty-two
Lying awake intently tuning in on you
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through

Video killed the radio star

2. Born a man-child of the sun, yeah
Yeah, saw my work had just begun
Yeah, found I had to stand alone, yeah
Well, bless it now, I've got my own
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah

Star

3. It's a cool place and they say it gets colder
You're bundled up now but wait 'til you get older
But the meteor men beg to differ
Judging by the hole in the satellite picture

Star

4. Come on, shine your heavenly body tonight
'Cause I know you're gonna make everything all right

Lucky Star, Madonna

5. I hear your name whispered on the wind
It's a sound that makes me cry
I hear a song blow again and again
Through my mind and I don't know why

Star

6. Til the sun that loves you proud
When the system tries to bring you down
Every hand to shine tonight
You dont need darkness to do what you think is right

Star

7. Oooh, it's a killing machine
It's got everything
Like a driving power
Big fat tires and everything

Star

8. Johnny made a record
Went straight up to number one
Suddenly, everyone loved to
Hear him sing the song

Star

9. Love songs written for you
It's been going down for years
But to sing what's in my heart
Seems more honest than the tears

Star

10. Just think of all the moments that we'd spent
I just can't let you go for you, you were meant

Star

11. You can come as you are with just your heart
And I'll take you in though you're rejected and hurt

Star

12. It's life, Jim
But not as we know it
Not as we know it
Not as we know it
It's life, Jim
But not as we know it
Not as we know it, Captain

Star Trek, Nichelle Nichols

Even though I'm not a Trek fan by any means, the earworm was too catchy, and the claymation-like video was too cool not to check out over and over again. I rated this #19 in my Top 30 Novelty Song countdown I ran in 2018...)


Image Bonus: If you know the word, show me a fitting image!

Solid, but no real homerun images for this one. I'm picking Earl for the IBB, and probably as much for the saying it three times thing than the image itself...
