- Today it's the penultimate list of songs and they begin with Y
- And here are my penultimate lyric snippets!
Rogers and Hammerstein wrote this beautiful song for the stage show, Carousel. I think it's a shame that the football crowds have adopted it because it has a special place in my heart that has nothing to do with football. You may have read my F post where I talked about agoraphobia and holding a song in my head to help me through difficult times. This song was another of those.
'When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark...'
It didn't save my sanity quite as much as 'For Once in My Life' did but I used to play the Gerry and the Pacemakers' version in my bedroom over and over again and try to get inspiration from the words.
And you'll never walk alone...'
The mantra is almost one of religious faith.
What does this song say to you?
'You walked into the party
like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot...
...You're so vain you probably think this song is about you...'
I suppose it could work just as well about a woman although I love the thought that she was having a pop at Mick Jagger. [Did I ever mention that I once chased Mick Jagger across a car park and he'd shouted, "Get off!" and hit me across the face. *swoon*]
Is there someone you know who could fit into this category?
Lots of Y songs I could have used. Which ones are missing here for you?
