  • An SWR Challenge! 🎧🎤🎸😀

    Posted by Fletch on October 14, 2022 at 8:23 am

    So I was challenged…! I had to try and write a tune that wasn’t sad…! “You mean like happy…? Really…!” So here’s my attempt, the latest SWR original, ‘Pelagia’. With @JulieI on Lead Electrickery and @stevep on Mandolin (and yet again proving he’s not a muggle like the rest of us). There’s a strong literal influence in this one, I hope you enjoy it. I tried…! 🎧🎤🎸😀 https://youtu.be/hhyYAO4Pbswhttps://youtu.be/hhyYAO4Pbsw

    Lyrics…

    Love is a passing madness

    A volcano in your path

    Taking over your senses

    A burning in your heart

    But when the fire passes

    We have choices to make

    Are the roots so entwined

    They’re impossible to break

    For that is,

    What Love is

    And when you dance, I could watch you, forever

    When you dance, I’m entranced, my Pelagia

    Love is not breathlessness,

    Or excitement when you meet

    It’s not vowels and promises

    Nor passionate heat

    It’s not a desire

    To make love night and day

    Or lying awake imagining

    Being touched in that way

    That’s just ‘being in love’

    Which any fool can do

    And when I play, I’ll feel this way, forever

    When I play, you’ll always stay, my Pelagia

    Love is what remains

    It’s the feelings that stay

    When the flames of ‘being in love’

    Have all burned away

    Love is both art

    And a twist of fate

    And when you Dance, I could watch you, forever

    When you Dance, I’m entranced, my Pelagia

    And when I play, I’ll feel this way, forever

    When I play, you’ll always stay, my Pelagia

    When your in love

    Anything is possible

    And when you Dance, I could watch you, forever

    When you Dance, I’m entranced, my Pelagia

    And when I play, I’ll feel this way, forever

    When I play, you’ll always stay, my Pelagia

    My Pelagia

    That was a beautiful creation @Fletch 🤩👏👏 Excellent playing by @JulieI on the guitar🎸 and @stevep on the mandolin😱 But Fletch, I have to say that “love” as a subject for a song is rarely cheerful😢 Still a great song though👍

      Thanks BIG Bill… 🙏

      Oh…”But Fletch, I have to say that “love” as a subject for a song is rarely cheerful“…

      I’d like to argue the point, but I can’t… 🤣

      Rule 1 of Love… Never fall for anyone that isn’t meant to be…

      Rule 2… Switch you’re ******* brain on…!

      Not to sure if you need Rule 1 if Rule 2 is in place… 😁

      OK OK I’m getting myself worked up here… I’m off to listen to some S-Club 7 to distract myself….

      Reach for the Stars, Follow your heart’s desires….. Ahhhh!!!!
