Kill me now
Moonshadow – Cat Stevens
Yes, I’m bein’ followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
Leapin and hoppin’ on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plough, lose my land,
Oh if I ever lose my hands, Oh well…. I won’t have to work no more.
And if I ever lose my eyes, if my colours all run dry,
Yes if I ever lose my eyes, Oh well…. I won’t have to cry no more.
A substitute teacher I had in 7th grade used to sing it when the class was being too loud, the way she sung it freaked me out back then, and it still has an effect on me to this day.
The whole ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ album – Meatloaf
Like a bat out of hell
I’ll be gone when the morning comes
When the night is over
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone gone gone
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes
When the day is done
And the sun goes down
And the moonlight’s shining through
Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
I’ll come crawling on back to you
My fathers a Meatloaf fan, I am not, and every Saturday morning I’d be subjected to hours of “Like a bat out of hell” blasting out of the stereo while I sit in a corner, rocking myself slowly. Saturday afternoons was a time when I contemplated his name choice… “Why would he call himself meatloaf, he doesn’t seem meaty or loafy in any way?”.
The ‘Home and Away’ theme song
And from the very first moment I saw you
I never felt such emotion
I’m walking on air
Just to know (just to know)
You are there (you are there)
Hold me in your arms
Don’t let me go
I want to stay forever
Home and away
With you each day
I’m not a home and away fan either, I’m sorry, but it’s a horrible TV show. It’s not possible for that many people to die, nearly die or have that many dramas in one bloody coastal town. Whenever I hear its theme song I cringe and try to block the lyrics out of my head. “Let me be the one that you turn too, someone you can rely on, closer each day home and away” – Kill me now.
