K Song Lyrics - A to Z Challenge

An A to Z reminder:
I don't blog on Saturdays so my L blog will be posted on Sunday. Hope to see you again then :-)

So much more than moons and Junes
  • Today's songs begin with K
  • And more lyric snippets to discuss!

1960s:         Keep on Running - The Spencer Davis Group [Keep on running, keep on hiding, one fine day I'm gonna be the one to make you understand...]

1970s:         Knowing Me, Knowing You - Abba

1980s:         Karma Chameleon - Culture Club  [...loving would be easy if your colours were like my dreams, red, gold and green...]

1990s:         Killing Me Softly - The Fugees

Knowing Me, Knowing You

There were a number of songs written by Abba that reflected my divorce experiences and this is one of them. They must have know exactly what it felt like and how much it hurt.

'...In these old familiar rooms children would play
Now there's only emptiness, nothing to say...'

Divorce was an extremely painful time in my life.

Is the rise in divorce due to society or are we expecting too much of life?

Killing Me Softly

How many times has a song spoken directly to you, rather like the one above spoke to me?

'...Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song...'

And that's precisely why I love song lyrics.

Is there a song that speaks directly to you? 

Another toughie. Any more K songs, anyone?
