Song Lyric Sunday 4th September

Jim has chosen my suggestion of Sounds, Talk, Voice, Words this week for our theme.

I’ve got a few for you this week:

First up is Body Talk from 1981 by Imagination. The vid doesn’t do much for me, but I liked the record and my copy of the single had an instrumental version on the flip side.

Body Talk is the debut album by British soul/dance group Imagination, produced by Steve Jolley and Tony Swain and released in October 1981. It is one of the earliest albums of its genre to have a distinctive ‘British’ sound as opposed to being an attempt to recreate contemporary American styles.

The title track was an immediate hit, reaching No. 4 on the UK singles chart. Two further singles, “In and Out of Love” and “Flashback”, also reached the top 20. The album itself peaked at No. 20.

Body Talk proved to be an enduring album, with the tracks “So Good, So Right” and “Burnin’ Up” being cited as influential and ahead of their time (the latter has been acknowledged by Frankie Knuckles as a key track in the development of house music).

Second choice is Words by The Bee Gees.

Words is a song by the Bee Gees, written by Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb. The song reached No. 1 in Germany, Canada, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.

“Words” was the Bee Gees third UK top 10 hit, reaching number 8, and in a UK television special on ITV in December 2011 it was voted fourth in “The Nation’s Favourite Bee Gees Song”. The song has been recorded by many other artists, including hit versions by Rita Coolidge in 1978 and Boyzone in 1996. This was Boyzone’s fifth single and their first number-one hit in the UK.

Next is Voice of the Heart by Diana Ross, a song that doesn’t get much airplay and was track 3 on the album Take me Higher (not much else available but enjoy the song)

Finally, I could not omit this, my all time favourite which still affects me emotionally.
Enjoy Disturb’s Sound of Silence, raw power and anger. ‘Nuff said.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    How glad am I that I chose not to go with my first thought on this week’s prompt! One Bee Gees post does the job, so I’d have been superfluous 😊
