Every Song has its Time

Every song has its moment. I’m not talking about tying a song to an emotional event here. I’m just saying that you can synch up specific lyrics to an event that just fits. It doesn’t have to have anything to do with the real content of the song.

Think I’m full of it? Then here, I present you with a few lyric offerings:

1. Dan Hill – Sometimes When we Touch (1978)

2. The Beatles – Do you Want to Know a Secret (1963)

3. Diana Ross – Theme From Mahogany (1975)

4. Bob Dylan – It Ain’t Me, Babe (1965)

5. Michael Jackson – Don’t Stop til you Get Enough (1979)

6. Gloria Estefan – I Don’t Want to Lose you (1989)

7. Barry White – Can’t Get Enough of you Love (1974)

8. Bananarama – Cruel Summer (1984)

9. Jars of Clay – Flood (2006)

10. Beach Boys – Don’t Worry Baby (1964)

So am I right or am I right...right...right (bonus if you know what movie that was from...)

Groundhog Day? Lethal Weapon?
Ain't it in a lot of movies?

"Don't wanna lose you now" was purrrrrrrrrrfect! :)

RED MOJO said...

Niiiiice, I like the Elliot Spitzer one best, I could just hear the ooohwaoooh in there. Look at his wife standing next to him. She should be behind him with her foot up his ass. Or at her attorney's office!

HeyJoe said...

Ground Hog day is correct, CHT.

Nice VE.

lime said...

ok, the movie was already ID'd so i'll just say it was spoken by the dweeby insurance agent.

loving the last pairing of song to image! i think i need to print that out and give it to the husband.

That cruel summer one should have featured a picture of every butterball's worst vacation nightmare.....FAT CAMP!

HeyJoe said...

Watch that first step. It's a DOOZIE!

VE said...

teri - Yep, you got it. Ground Hog Day

red mojo - Yeah, I don't see how she can stand there

heyjoe - You got it too. Guess that one was too easy.

lime - Dweeby insurance agent would be correct! It took me awhile to find that particular image...

elasticwaistbandlady - I learned from Diesel at Matress Police...don't really pick on the fat people...

heyjoe - Another CLASSIC!

cathouse teri said...

Every time I see that dweeby actor, I think, "Omigod! That's Ned Ryerson!"

Kurt said...

Yes, I think you're full of it. Or was that a rhetorical question?

Yes, my name is Arizona said...

How did you get a picture of my belly?????

VE said...

teri - Yeah, he was in Sneakers and played a dork too

kurt - It's been building up for I don't know how long...

arizona - Now see, if that is you, then the lyrics are VERY appropriate

Alan Smithee said...

I suggest a follow-up post using film titles.

VE said...

alan - Good idea. Imagine what image I might use for Mash?

damon said...

You could have gone a totally different way with Jacko.

Are you slippin? -d

Jonah K. Haslap said...

Instead of bonus points for knowing this, you should bar anyone who DOESN'T know it from reading your blog. I would.

Not bad for a quadruped.

VE said...

damon - That's very true. It did occur to me though...I just chose the safer route for a Saturday.

jonah - That's a good way to look at it. Everyone SHOULD know this movie by heart and there will be a test on it.

Bunk said...

I have no idea what that was all about. I guess I better rent "Ground Hog Day." Does it have busty Chinese chicks in it?

sprinkle4 said...

The Dan Hill pic represents my husband's way of secretly telling me he loves me. He loves me a lot!:)

VE said...

bunk - How could you have missed Groundhog Day? That's insane!

sprinkle - Hah. That's too funny.

ChristineEldin said...

These are funny! Don't know how long it takes you to pull this stuff together, but it's very enjoyable as an audience member!
:-)

Serena Joy said...

Groundhog Day, yeah, but now I'm never going to be able to hear those songs again without seeing those pictures in my head.:)

leelee said...

Happy Easter!!

VE said...

christine - Some take longer than others. Depends whether I have to do any fancy photoshop work or not.

sj - Sorry about that...but the same applies to me; and you know how misery loves company...

leelee - Happy Easter to you too. And to all my blog friends!

Jeff said...

For some reason I can't actually tell what "Don't wanna lose you now" is a picture of. Help me out...

cathouse teri said...

Jeff ~ Isn't it keys hanging on a chain link fence?

Hale McKay said...

I was laughing all the way through these - I laughed the hardest at the last one "Don't Worry Baby."

NYD said...

I liked the way you started us off with a bang on picture #2

Jacki said...

Where do you get your ideas??

Dale said...

The honesty's too much! Hilarious.

VE said...

jeff - Teri is right, it's a set of car keys...not something you want to lose at the beach

teri - Thanks, you got it right

hale - Thanks. That was my favorite one.

nyd - I knew I couldn't resist doing something with that story...

jacki - This one just sort of popped in while I was listening to the radio and that silly Dan Hill song came on the radio.

dale - That's the one that started all of these...
