Song Lyric Challenge, Day 3 / Song Lyric Sunday

I don’t often partake in bloggy challenges in which one is tagged, but I loves me some music, and was tagged by a fellow music lover, so here I am! It’s also Song Lyric Sunday and this week’s theme is plan.

For the challenge:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.  Thanks, ghostmmnc!
  2.  Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days. See below!
  3.  Nominate three other bloggers each day. I nominate anyone else who wants to play.

I decided to focus on female singer/songwriters that I admire (click to read day 1 and day 2).

Day 3:  He Thinks He’ll Keep Her by Mary Chapin Carpenter 

My dad introduced me to this singer and my appreciation for her was solidified upon hearing Down at the Twist and Shout (what a fun song!). Much like my other two choices, I love her voice. I also love the way she tells stories and creates poems to music. This song is definitely more the former. And it’s super catchy!

In keeping with this week’s Song Lyric Song theme, this song, from the same album (Come On, Come On), tells the story of what happens when a plan doesn’t work out.

  1. T Siz,

    This song was on her 1992 album that my then fiancee owned. She and her girlfriend wore this CD ragged on their girls only road trip that served as her final venture as a single gal. Their anthem was the cover for “Passionate Kisses”. I did not ask questions, lol.

    Excellent choice!

  2. This song takes me WAY back to the 90’s. She was a regular listen for me. Today, it made me cry. It reminded me of my sister, who is currently going through a divorce. It doesn’t quite fit her story, but almost. Anyway, thanks for the reminder of such a great song!

  3. Sorry for the tears, but perhaps it’s a good thing to cry, eh? Sorry for your sister’s tough time. Hope she comes out the other side quickly and feeling peaceful (eventually). You’re welcome. Glad you enjoy MCC, too!
