Everyone Needs a Bosom for a Pillow

 OK, that lyric really has nothing to do with today's post but it got your attention, right!

Btw according to my count this actually is my, for real, 300th published post.

Today, as we begin our new year, is another addition of my best of the rest.  These are lyrics I like but I don't think I'll ever get to use as a title for this cheatin' blog.  But those lyrics above actually are from a real song.  They are from the 1997 song Brimful of Asha by the Brit group Cornerstone.  The lyrics are apparently (according to wiki) a tribute to Asha Bhosle who did the voice-over on many Bollywood soundtracks.  Anyway it's a fairly catchy song that sort of just makes you feel relaxed.  The band in the video below seems pretty relaxed while they play as well.  And of course they get a reward for stating the obvious with their elegant bridge lyric "everyone needs a bosom for a pillow!"
 As always leave your guesses on the song these lyrics come from.  Your prize will be my eternal respect and reverence!  :)
*  I never had schoolin' but he taught me well with his smooth Southern style...
    -  wow, that's what all the girls tell me!  :)
*  I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the Saints; the sinners are much more fun...
*  And it wasn't low blows and video hos
I actually used this song for a post but used other lyrics; I love the artful use of "video" as an adjective to modify the vernacular use of the noun "whore."  :)
*  De do do do, de da da da, is all I want to say to you.
*  The boss don't like me, face like a weasel; all on my hands, the smell of diesel.
*  Early morning, April 4th shots ring out in the Memphis sky.  Free at last, they took your life; they could not take your pride
*  Have you come here to play Jesus, to the leapers in your head
*  You're dangerous 'cause you're honest, your're dangerous you don't know what you want.  Well you left my heart empty as a vacant lott for any spirit to haunt.
*  Well my heart is where it's always been, my head is somewhere in between
*  Romeo and Juliet are together in eternity.  40,000 men and women everyday (like Romeo and Juliet)..... we can be like they are
*  You say you came to Baltimore from Ole Miss, a class of '74 gold ring...
*  Well we know where we're going, but we don't know where we've been.  And we know what we're knowing, but we can't say what we've seen.
*  Time, time, time see what's become of me while I looked around for my possibilities, I was so hard to please.
*  Many have I loved - many times been bitten', many times I've gazed along the open road.
On second thought I should have used this one before.
*  I'm 45 for a moment.  The sea is high and I'm headin' into a crisis, chasing the years of my life
*  On the (Potomac) side streets the you slip down provincial towns you jog round hang the (blogger), hang the (blogger), hang the (blogger); hang the (blogger)
I changed those just a bit for a/effect
*  Starry starry night, paint your pallet blue and grey.  Look out on a summer's day with eyes that know the darkness of my soul.
*  I ain't got a penny for Cotton Jenny to spend but then the wheels go round.
*  We're through being cool, eliminate the ninnies and the twits...
*  Hey now wait a minute gotta put some dog in it!
That's actually a cheer I once heard.    :)

* And a great movie quote:  "well as the king his own self said they ain't nothin' in this whole wide world foolproof ceptin' coup de Villes and hookers!"   :)

* And one from a book:  "'But this road doesn't go anywhere,' I told him. 'That doesn't matter.' 'What does?' I asked after a little while.  'Just that we're on it, dude!'"
 I've used that quote for AM, it worked!

And finally in the immortal words of my kindred spirit Forest Gump "I'm pretty tired now," I think I'll take a nap.  Anyone have a bosom for my pillow!  :)
