Song Lyric Sunday on Tuesday

https://helenespinosa.wordpress.com/2016/07/30/song-lyric-sunday-theme-for-73116/

“So, our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song that was featured in a movie.  It can be a song from a favorite movie, or one of your favorite songs that was featured in a movie.”

Oh Helen, not only can I never seem to pick only one song to fit the theme you work so hard to come up with for us. Now, I can’t even get it done on SUNDAY!!

My excuse this week is a memorial on Sunday for an adopted sister, very emotional, and I had already been thinking of this song before I got home and read the challenge for July 31rst.

It is from a movie I had seen years ago with this sister. “Boys on the Side”. We loved it and I have watched it again and again over the years. If you have seen the movie, we compared ourselves to the three main female character’s personality-wise. She, the wild Drew Barrymore girl. Me, the more traditional Mary Louise Parker woman, and both of us, a little of Whoopie!

Over the many years of our “sister” friendship, we switched those roles with each other often and in the end, she was the one, ravaged by an illness, not AIDS but equally vicious (3rd stage alcoholism) who left the planet first.

I cannot hear this song or see this video without huge grief. I see myself singing this to my little “sister”. The video quality is poor and it is an actual scene from the movie but I will try to include the more upbeat Bonnie Raitt version at the end. The whole soundtrack is really amazing!!

Here are the lyrics: (from Google Play)

You Got It by Roy Orbison

Every time I look into your lovely eyes,
I see a love that money just can’t buy.
One look from you, I drift away.
I pray that you are here to stay.

Anything you want, you got it.
Anything you need, you got it.
Anything at all, you got it.
Baby!

Every time I hold you I begin to understand,
Everything about you tells me I’m your man.
I live my life to be with you.
No one can do the things you do.
Anything you want, you got it.
Anything you need, you got it.
Anything at all, you got it.
Baby!
Anything you want
Anything you need
Anything at all

I’m glad to give my love to you.
I know you feel the way I do.
Anything you want, you got it.
Anything you need, you got it.
Anything at all, you got it.
Baby!
Anything you want, you got it
Anything you need, you got it
Anything at all, you got it
Baby
Anything at all
Baby
You got it

 

It will not let me paste the Bonnie Raitt version…just repeats the one above but google

Thought a blog might help me develop better writing habits so I could finally finish my book, 16 years in the writing, but so far it's mostly photos and FUN!

  1. I am so sorry for your loss. I don’t even know how you posted this with the grief so fresh. Thank you so much for sharing it, though. I remember watching this movie and crying my eyes out during this scene. ❤ Beautiful lyrics!
