I’m feeling rather uninspired when it comes to naming this post, so have gone with the obvious.
Two question words: ‘When’ and ‘Where’. Is there much to explain with these words? Not really. Well, with both it seems they are often not actually being used to start questions in the songs I have, more just pronouns for statements on time and place. They don’t have the added present tense verb ‘do’ or ‘will’ to make them questions… I’m sure there’s a more technical term that I would have learnt during my English degree to describe how these words are being used here, but it eludes me now.
So, ‘When’. When will this be over?! Soon, I promise. Here are my ‘When’ words:
When Doves Cry – Prince
When I Grow Up – The Beach Boys
When Tomorrow Comes – Eurythmics
When Will I See You Again – The Three Degrees (from the Be My Baby sixties album I bought fairly recently)
When You Walk in the Room – Fyfe Dangerfield (quite a funky tune from Fyfe, quite fun and one of the better ones from his album)
When You Walk in the Room – Jackie DeShannon (completely different song, this one from the sixties album again)
When You’re Young and in Love – The Marvelettes (another one from that album. It appears the gals in the sixties liked asking ‘When’ questions, or just using the word ‘When’ seeing as they’re not actually questions…)
OK, now ‘Where’ in the world are we?
Where Is My Wild Rose – Robin Pecknold (a cover of a Chris Thompson song, apparently, and from the three free songs he released a while back)
Where Nobody Knows – Kings of Leon
Where You Lead – Carole King (yes, I have this because of Gilmore Girls, why else?)
So that’s all for now. Not long to go now… it’s a shame I’m feeling a bit lacklustre about this whole thing and my blog-venture may go out on a limp rather than a high, not that there would really be a ‘high’… what am I saying? I have no idea any more, I better leave.
Bit random video, but the only other ones of this song were live performances that didn’t really carry across the track that well, and a boring ‘lyrics’ video. This is a montage of three Indian/Hindu weddings it appears, but it sort of works quite nicely. These videos are really just a way of putting the audio of the song here anyway, no need to pay attention to the visual:
