Welcome back to #MarcosPlaylist and #SaturdaySingalong with another song from the playlist I made for my grandson in August 2020 on Spotify, when he was just a few days old. I chose my favourite songs with a mellow rhythm to sing to him, dance with him cradled in my arms and perhaps send him to sleep, or at least calm him down! This post, tanka and playlist is for Marcos, now twelve-weeks old.
Today I’m featuring Easy (like a Sunday morning) a song written by the great, grammy-award-winning artist, Lionel Ritchie and made famous by Commodores, the popular soul, dance and funky group of which he was a member, until he launched his solo career in 1982.
Easy became a hit in 1977, when I was in my first year at Westfield College, such a long time ago, and yet it seems like yesterday!
Here’s the youtube remasterised version. Don’t you just love the shiny costumes flickering all over the screen! It takes me right back to the Age of Glitter in Pop Culture in the seventies; David Cassidy, Marc Bolan, David Bowie, shiny icons, sparkling stars, I danced and sang-along with them all! Such glowing memories!
Free as summer sunbeams,
Easy like Sunday morning,
Loose like shooting star,
Unchained, unfettered, serene,
Heart glittering in night sky.
I hope you have a long, lazy Sunday, free to do whatever makes you happy.
I’m looking forward to mine, although I’ll be busy converting my basement into a playroom for my grandchildren.
