Friday Song Of The Day – Kyrie

Today’s Friday Song of the Day is a blast from the 80s that cause many any adolescent to stop and say, “what the heck is that guy saying?!” This is Kyrie by Mr. Mister from their album Welcome to the Real World.

Kyrie eleison
Kyrie eleison, kyrie

The wind blows hard
Against this mountainside
Across the sea into my soul
It reaches into where I cannot hide
Setting my feet upon the road

My heart is old
It holds my memories
My body burns a gemlike flame
Somewhere between
The soul and soft machine
Is where I find myself again

Kyrie eleison
Down the road that I must travel
Kyrie eleison
Through the darkness of the night
Kyrie eleison
Where I’m going, will you follow
Kyrie eleison
On a highway in the light

When I was young
I thought of growing old
Of what my life
Would mean to me

Would I have followed
Down my chosen road
Or only wished
What I could be

Kyrie eleison
Down the road that I must travel
Kyrie eleison
Through the darkness of the night
Kyrie eleison
Where I’m going, will you follow
Kyrie eleison
On a highway in the light

Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh

Kyrie eleison
Down the road that I must travel
Kyrie eleison
Through the darkness of the night
Kyrie eleison
Where I’m going, will you follow
Kyrie eleison
On a highway in the light

Friday Song Of The Day – 25 Miles

Today I bring you a 60s soul classic for the Friday Song Of The Day. This is Twenty Five Miles by Edwin Starr which can be found on 20th Century Masters: The Best of Edwin Starr (Millennium Collection).

Twenty-five miles from home, girl
My feet are hurtin’ mighty bad
Now I’ve been walkin’ for three days
And two lonely nights
You know that I’m mighty bad
But I got a girl waitin’ for me
That’s gonna make this trip worthwhile
You see, she’s got the kind
Of lovin’ and kissin’
Make a boy go stone wild

I got to keep on walkin’
Oh I got to walk on
Let me tell you, y’all
I’m so tired
But I just can’t lose my stride

I got fifteen miles to go now
And I can hear my baby callin’ my name
It’s as if, as though
I’m standin’ at her front door
And I can hear that doggone thing
Now I’ll be so glad to see my baby
And hold her in my arms one more time
And when I kiss her lips
I turn backward flip
And I forget about these feet of mine

I got to keep on walkin’

Oh I got to walk on
Let me tell you, y’all
I’m so tired
But I just can’t lose my stride

Yeah I got to walk on
Let me tell you, y’all
Hope my feet don’t fail me now
I got five more miles to go
I got nine, eight, seven
Six, oh six

I got five more miles to go now
Over the hills just around the bend
Although my feet are tired
I can’t lose my stride
I got to get my baby back again

I got to keep on walkin’
I got to walk on
Let me tell y’all
I’m so tired now
But I just can’t lose my stride
Oh, I got to walk on
Let me tell you now
I’m so tired
But I just can’t lose my stride
I got to walk on

Friday Song Of The Day – Believe It Or Not

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a super-hero? Well Ralph Hinkley, a school teacher, finds this out in the comedy series Greatest American Hero. The thing I remember most about this series though is the theme song being played while he flies into a crash landing through a wall. Great stuff! You can pick this up on the TV Land Presents: Favorite TV Theme Songs which has a lot of other great theme songs that you are sure to love. Well here it is; Joe Scarbury’s Believe It Or Not:

Look at what’s happened to me,
I can’t believe it myself;
Suddenly I’m up on top of the world,
Should’ve been somebody else.

Believe it or not,
I’m walkin’ on air,
I never thought I could feel so free;
Flyin’ away on a wing and a pray’r,
Who could it be?
Believe it or not, it’s just me.

Just like the light of new day,
It hit me from out of the blue;
Breakin’ me out of the spell I was in,
Makin’ all of my wishes come true.

Believe it or not,
I’m walkin’ on air,
I never thought I could feel so free;
Flyin’ away on a wing and a pray’r,
Who could it be?
Believe it or not, it’s just me.

This is too good to be true,
Look at me
Falling for you.

Believe it or not,
Believe it or not,
Believe it or not,
Believe it or not.

Believe it or not,
I’m walkin’ on air,
I never thought I could feel so free;
Flyin’ away on a wing and a pray’r,
Who could it be?
Believe it or not, it’s just me.

Believe it or not,
I’m walkin’ on air,
I never thought I could feel so free;
Flyin’ away on a wing and a pray’r,
Who could it be?
Believe it or not, it’s just me.

Friday Song Of The Day – Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head

Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David was made famous by B.J. Thomas in his performance of it for the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The song was number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 1970.

Raindrops keep falling on my head
Just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed,
Nothing seems to fit.
Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling…

So I just did me some talking to the sun
And I said, I didn’t like the way, he got things done.
Sleeping on the job.
Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling…

But there’s one thing, I know:
The blues, they send to meet me won’t defeat me,
It won’t be long till happiness steps up to greet me.

Raindrops keep falling on my head,
But that doesn’t mean my eyes will soon be turning red,
Crying’s not for me.
And, I’m never gonna stop the rain by complaining,
Because I’m free
Nothing’s worrying me!
