5-Day Song Challenge: Day Numero Twovius

So yeah, this was probably supposed to be a consecutive post thingy, yeah? Yeah. As much as I like thingies, I couldn’t post this weekend. I mean, I could have, but yeah. Yeah. A lot of “yeahs” in this post? Had you noticed, or did I just point it out for you and make it worse? …yeah.

I already did the intro and rule thingies in numero the first post. So I’ll get right to today’s song.

Ahem.

Today’s Song(Bet you didn’t see that coming. Cuz I’m suave. Like Rico.)

Feel it Still – Portugal. The Man

This is a new song, and I’m digging the hell out of it. It’s extremely overplayed on a local station, but I don’t mind (yet – I will soon hate the song with the rage of a thousand scorned dragonflies (you thought I was gonna say “women” didn’t you?)).

Have some lyrics in your faceholes. The two little ones that (usually) have eyeballs stuffed in them. The Lyrics:

Can’t keep my hands to myself
Think I’ll dust ’em off, put ’em back up on the shelf
In case my little baby girl is in need
Am I coming out of left field?

Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks, now
I been feeling it since 1966, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still
Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks, now
Let me kick it like it’s 1986, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still

Got another mouth to feed
Leave her with a babysitter, mama, call the gravedigger
Gone with the fallen leaves
Am I coming out of left field?

Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks now,
I been feeling it since 1966, now
Might’ve had your fill, but you feel it still
Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks, now
Let me kick it like it’s 1986, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still

We could fight a war for peace
(Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks, now)
Give in to that easy livin’
Goodbye to my hopes and dreams
Stop flipping for my enemies

We could wave until the walls come down
(Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks now)
It’s time to give a little tip
Kids in the middle, move over ’til it falls
Don’t bother me

Is it coming?
Is it coming?
Is it coming?
Is it coming?
Is it coming?
Is it coming back?

Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks, yeah
Your love is an abyss for my heart to eclipse, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still

Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks, now
I’ve been feeling it since 1966, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still
Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks, now
Let me kick it like it’s 1986, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still
Might’ve had your fill, but you feel it still

It feels to me like this song is about quite a few things. I did bold some of the lyrics that I like the most – or are the most meaningful to me.

For the most part, to me it’s a song that has a fun feel and makes me move. As for the lyrics, there are a lot of things and even people about which and whom I can say, “I feel it still.” Might be over now, but I feel it still. I haven’t had my fill.

As for what or whom those things and people may be? I think I’ll keep that bit to myself. For now.

      1. Yep, they’re really good. I haven’t seen them live either, though they were here just a week or so ago. Raising kids can really hamper one’s extracurricular activities. 😃😃

      2. Yeah, I believe they’re here this summer, for Forecastle. I’m hoping to make at least one day of the three, and it’d be great if they’re playing on said potential day. If my kids give me the day off. 😏

      3. We’ve taken ’em to shows, and even music festivals. But, frankly, I have more fun without them at some events. It’s nice just to be with my wife or friends. That said, they’ll be going if it comes down to that vs. not going at all. 😃

      4. I’m all in favor of getting them into music and shows and the whole experience of live music. I was taken to concert after concert when I was a kid, way back when in the 70’s. I was exposed to dozens of the bands that now are considered “classic rock”….and a bunch of shit a kid that age probably shouldn’t have been exposed to. But, that’s where my love of music, in particular live music, comes from. I took it and ran, sometimes to my detriment. Don’t regret any of it though, and I hope to impart that love upon my boys. So far, so good. 😃

      5. I went to a hip hop show recently, and there was this couple with three kids with em. They had headphone thingies on to protect their ears. One of them was only a toddler, but the other two – about 7 years old I’d guess – were having a ball.

    1. Hehe sorry! I opened the computer on Saturday and tried to write. But there was stuff going on, and I couldn’t focus! Good thing I breaking rules!

      Truth be told, I was aggravated. 😂😋
