S Song Lyrics - A to Z Challenge

This is an April Blog Challenge. Normal blog posts will resume in May.

So much more than moons and Junes
  • Song beginning with S
  • And lyric snippets

1960s:          Sounds of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel      

1970s:          Summer Breeze - The Isley Brothers

1980s:           Stepping Out - Joe Jackson [...we are younger getting old before our time, we'll leave the TV and the radio behind...]

1990s:           Stay Another Day - East 17 [Baby if you've got to go away, I don't think I can take the pain...]

Sound/s of Silence

This song was originally called Sounds of Silence but Simon and Garfunkel dropped the plural in later recordings. Paul Simon said that he often shut himself in his echoey bathroom, turned out the lights and played his guitar. This was how he got much of his inspiration hence...

'Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again...'

Do you find that you do your best thinking when you're alone in the dark?

Summer Breeze

This song doesn't quite fit in with a lot of my other choices but it has such a positive effect on me that I decided to include it.

'...Summer breeze makes me feel fine
Blowing through the Jasmine in my mind...'

I don't know how a summer breeze could blow Jasmine in my mind but I love the thought and it always makes me think happy thoughts of warm summer days.

What song does this for you?

There must be lots of S songs that you'd like to have seen here.
