Sites To See #447

The SOLE purpose of this series is to help call attention to sites that I think many would find most interesting—in one way or another.  Just to be clear, inclusion in this series is not necessarily meant as an endorsement, and I have included sites that I found rather disturbing.  The link below each image is to the site itself, and each image is linked to the particular post from which it was taken when applicable.  Please, go see for yourself.  Oh, and as of August 10, 2012, I will be no longer including sites that have auto-play and word verification engaged.

ATF: Plumb Patriotic 3

This series will include as many of my all-time favorite (ATF) tunes as I can get my grubby little hands on (so to speak).  Now, each one included in each edition will have some connection with the other—albeit only as a figment of my imagination, but they will not be numbered.  For I just cannot bring myself to rate some higher than others.  So, this will not be a countdown, but if you are enjoying them as much as I do, it won’t matter.  Besides, with no countdown, this could go on forever and ever!  Oh, and despite the fact that there is absolutely no way your musical tastes could be as exquisite as mine, I welcome any suggestions you might dare to make.  For I am, after all, quite magnanimous by nature.



America
Neil Diamond
Far
We’ve been travelin’ far
Without a home
But not without a star
Free
Only want to be free
We huddle close
Hang on to a dream

On the boats and on the planes
They’re comin’ to America
Never lookin’ back again
They’re comin’ to America

Home
Don’t it seem so far away
Oh we’re travelin’ light today
In the eye of the storm
In the eye of the storm
Home
To a new and a shiny place
Make our bed and we’ll say our grace
Freedom’s light burnin’ warm
Freedom’s light burnin’ warm

Everywhere around the world
They’re comin’ to America
Every time that flag’s unfurled
They’re comin’ to America
Got a dream to take ‘em there
They’re comin’ to America
Got a dream they’ve got to share
They’re comin’ to America
They’re comin’ to America
They’re comin’ to America
They’re comin’ to America
They’re comin’ to America
Today
Today
Today
Today
Today

My country ‘tis of thee
Today
Sweet land of liberty
Today
Of thee I sing
Today
Of thee I Sing
Today
Today
Today
Today



America
Waylon Jennings
Some have said
Down through history
If you last
It’s a mystery
But I guess they don’t know
What they’re talkin’ about
From the mountains
Down to the sea
You’ve become
Such a habit with me
America
America

Well I come from
Down around Tennessee
But the people
In California
Are nice to me
America

It don’t matter
Where I may roam
Tell you people
That it’s home sweet home
America
America

And my brothers
Are all black and white
Yellow too
And the red man is right
To expect a little from you
Promise
And then follow through
America

All the men
Who fell on the plains
And lived
Through hardship and pain
America
America

And the men
Who could not fight
In a war
That didn’t seem right
You let them come home
America

And my brothers
Are all black and white
Yellow too
And the red man is right
To expect a little from you
Promise
And then follow through
America

Well I come from
Down around Tennessee
But the people
In California
Are nice to me
America

And no matter
Where I may roam
Tell you people
That it’s home sweet home
America
America

America
America

It’s home sweet home
America
America

I’m in a Hurry
Alabama
I’m in a hurry
To get things done
Oh I
Rush and rush
Until life’s no fun
All I really gotta do is
Live and die
But I’m in a hurry
And don’t know why

Don’t know why
I have to drive so fast
My car has nothing to prove
It’s not new
But it’ll do zero to sixty
In five point two

Oh
I’m in a hurry
To get things done
Oh I
Rush and rush
Until life’s no fun
All I really gotta do is
Live and die
But I’m in a hurry
And don’t know why

Can’t be late
I leave in plenty of time
Shakin’ hands with the clock
I can’t stop
I’m on a roll
And I’m ready to rock

Oh
I’m in a hurry
To get things done
Oh I
Rush and rush
Until life’s no fun
All I really gotta do is
Live and die
But I’m in a hurry
And don’t know why

Oh I hear a voice
That says I’m runnin’ behind
I better pick up my pace
It’s a race
And there ain’t
No room for someone in second place

I’m in a hurry
To get things done
I rush and rush
Until life’s no fun
All I really gotta do is
Live and die
But I’m in a hurry
And don’t know why
I’m in a hurry
To get things done
Oh I
Rush and rush
Until life’s no fun
All I really gotta do is
Live and die
But I’m in a hurry
And don’t know why
I’m in a hurry
To get things done
Oh I
Rush and rush
Until life’s no fun
All I really gotta do is
Live and die
But I’m in a hurry
And don’t know why
I’m in a hurry
To get things done
Oh I
Rush and rush
Until life’s no fun
All I really gotta do is
Live and die
But I’m in a hurry
And don’t know why

Ooh

Got to get your lovin'
One more time
Hold me

Slow-ridin' woman
You're so fine

I'm in the mood
The rhythm is right
Move to the music
Yeah
We can roll all night
Yeah

Ooh
Slow ride
Take it easy
Slow ride
Take it easy
Slow down
Go down
Got to get your lovin'
One more time
Hold me
Roll me
Slow-ridin' woman
You're so fine

Slow ride
Easy
Slow ride
Sleazy
Slow ride

A Sunday Drive

Back during our childhood, our parents would often load up my brother and me after Sunday morning church services for a leisurely drive around where we lived.  Even though we were seeing mostly familiar sights, it was still good to see them again, and this is why “A Sunday Drive” sounded about right for the name of a series revisiting familiar sites that are well worth seeing again and again.  The link below the image is to the site itself, and the image is linked to the post it was first included in here.

Total Eclipse of the Heart
Bonnie Tyler
Turn around
Every now and then I get a little bit lonely
And you're never coming round
Turn around
Every now and then I get a little bit tired
Of listening to the sound of my tears
Turn around
Every now and then I get a little bit nervous
That the best of all the years have gone by
Turn around
Every now and then I get a little bit terrified
And then I see the look in your eyes

Turn around
Bright eyes
Every now and then I fall apart
Turn around
Bright eyes
Every now and then I fall apart

Turn around
Every now and then I get a little bit restless
And I dream of something wild
Turn around
Every now and then I get a little bit helpless
And I'm lying like a child in your arms
Turn around
Every now and then I get a little bit angry
And I know I've got to get out and cry
Turn around
Every now and then I get a little bit terrified
But then I see the look in your eyes

Turn around
Bright eyes
Every now and then I fall apart
Turn around
Bright eyes
Every now and then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
'Cause we'll never be wrong

Together we can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
All of the time
I don't know what to do
And I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg
And giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna to start tonight
Forever's gonna to start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love
Now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart

Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart

Turn around
Bright eyes
Every now and then I fall apart
Turn around
Bright eyes
Every now and then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you'll only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
'Cause we'll never be wrong
Together we can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
All of the time
I don't know what to do
I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg
And giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love
Now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart

Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart
A total eclipse of the heart

Turn around
Bright eyes
Turn around
Bright eyes
Turn around



Two Steps Behind
Def Leppard
Walk away
If you want to
It's okay
If you need to
Well you can run
But you can never hide
From the shadow
That's creepin' up beside you
There's a magic runnin' through your soul
But you can't have it all

Whatever you do
I'll be two steps behind you
Wherever you go
And And I'll be there to remind you
That it only takes a minute
Of your precious time
To turn around
I'll be two steps behind
Yeah
Yeah

Take the time
To think about it
Just walk the line
You know you just can't fight it
Take a look around
You see what you can find
Like the fire
That's burnin' up inside me
There's a magic runnin' through your soul
But you can't have it all
No

Whatever you do
I'll be two steps behind you
Wherever you go
And I'll be there to remind you
That it only takes a minute
Of your precious time
To turn around
I'll be two steps behind

Yeah yeah yeah

Oh oh

Oh oh oh

There's a magic runnin' through your soul
But you
You can't have it all

Whatever you do
I'll be two steps behind you
Wherever you go
And I'll be there to remind you
That it only takes a minute
Of your precious time
To turn around
I'll be two steps behind
Yeah baby
Two steps behind
Oh sugar
Two steps behind
