E Song Lyrics - A to Z Challenge

An A to Z reminder: 

I won't be blogging on Saturdays so my F blog will be posted on Sunday. Hope to see you then :-)

So much more than moons and Junes
  • Today's songs begin with 
  • Scroll down for two lyric snippets to set you thinking... and commenting!

1960s:        Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles

1970s:        Easy - The Commodores

1980s:        Eternal Flame- The Bangles  [...Do you feel the same, am I only dreaming, is this burning an eternal flame...]

1990s:        Endless Love - Luther Van Dross and Mariah Carey [...You're every breath I take, you're every step I make...]

Eleanor Rigby

Lennon and McCartney wrote a fair few 'moons and Junes' lyrics but Eleanor Rigby was not one of them. These lyrics never fail to touch my heart.

'...All the lonely people
Where do they all come from.
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong...'

It's so sad to think that there are many people living a lonely life with nothing more than a brick wall dividing them from other lonely people. If we didn't live behind firmly closed doors then there would be less loneliness in the world.

Hunger and hatred are evil but so is loneliness. Where did our society go wrong?


In my music collection I have almost all of Lionel Richie's songs. He's a great song writer.

'...Why in the world would anybody put chains on me
I've paid my dues to make it.
Everybody wants me to be 
What they want me to be
I'm not happy when I try and fake it...'

I hate it when people want me to be what they want me to be. When I was a teenager I was continually giving in to peer pressure and it just made me miserable. Now I'm older and wiser and more confident. I'm me. Like it or lump it.

Have you ever given in to peer pressure against your better judgement?

Did I miss out one of your favourite songs beginning with E?
