Free Friday: A Little Soul Music

These are the songs I turn to at the moment when I need a little lift – enjoy!

I have posted the lyrics underneath so you can sing along…

The Sound of Sunshine – Michael Franti & Spearhead

One, two, three, uh huh
Yo, yo

I wake up in the mornin’ at 6 ‘o clock
You say there may be rain but the sun is hot
I wish I had some time just to kill today
And I wish I had a dime for every bill I got to pay
Some days you lose, you win, and the water’s as high as the times roll in
So I jump back in where I learned to swim
Try to keep my head above it the best I can
That’s why

Here I am
Just waitin’ for the storm to pass me by
And that’s the sound of sunshine
Comin’ down
And that’s the sound of sunshine
Comin’ down (down, down, down)
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh

One, two, three, uh huh
I saw my friend Bobby he said “What’s up man?”
You got little work or 20 to lend
I opened up my hand he said “I’m glad to see”
They could take away my job but not my friends you see

And here I am
Just waitin’ for the storm to pass me by (pass me by)
And that’s the sound of sunshine
Comin’ down
And that’s the sound of sunshine
Comin’ down

Yo, yo, here we go

I wanna go where the summer never ends
With my guitar on the beach there with all my friends
The sun so hot and the waves in motion
And everything smells like suntan lotion
The ocean, and the girls so sweet
So kick off your shoes and relax your feet
You say that miracles are never ceasin’
And every single song needs a little releasin’
The stereo bumpin’ til the sun goes down
And I only wanna hear that sound

That’s the sound of sunshine (of sunshine)
Comin’ down
And that’s the sound of sunshine
Comin’ down (comin’ down, down, down)

And I say
You’re the one I wanna be with (yo, yo)
When the sun goes down (uh huh)
You’re the one I wanna be with (I really wanna be with)
When the sun goes down, sing
You’re the one I wanna be with
When the sun goes down
You’re the one I wanna be with
When the sun goes…

That’s the sound (that’s the sound) of sunshine (of sunshine)
Comin’ down (uh huh, uh huh)
And that’s the sound of sunshine
Comin’ down
Eh, eh, eh
When the sun goes down, when the sun goes down
Eh, eh, eh, eh (when the sun goes down)

Natasha Bedingfield – Strip Me

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la

Every day I fight for
All my futures something
1000 little wars
I have to choose between
I could spend a lifetime
Earning things that I don’t need
But that’s like chasing rainbows
And comin’ home empty

And if you strip me
Strip it all away
If you strip me
What would you find
If you strip me
strip it all away
I’ll be alright

Take what you want
Steal my pride
Build me up
Or cut me down the side
Shut me out
But I just scream
I’m only one voice in a million
And you ain’t takin’ that from me
Oh oh oh you ain’t takin’ that from me x4

I don’t need a microphone, yeah
To say what I’ve been thinkin’
My heart is like a loudspeaker
That’s always on eleven

And if you strip me
Strip it all away
If you strip me
What would you find
If you strip me
strip it all away
I’m still the same

Take what you want
Steal my pride
Build me up
Or cut me down the side
Shut me out
But I just scream
I’m only one voice in a million
And you ain’t takin’ that from me
Oh oh oh you ain’t takin’ that from me x4

‘Cuz when it all boils down
At the end of the day
It’s what you do and say
That makes you who you are
Makes you think about it, think about it
Doesn’t it
Sometimes all it takes is one voice

Take what you want
Steal my pride
Build me up
Or cut me down the side
Shut me out
But I just scream
I’m only one voice in a million
And you ain’t takin’ that from me
Oh oh oh you ain’t takin’ that from me x4

Take what you want
Steal my pride
Build me up
Or cut me down the side
Shut me out
But I just scream
I’m only one voice in a million
And you ain’t takin’ that from me
Oh oh oh you ain’t takin’ that from me x4

La la la la la la la la la la la la
