Today it is time for the SUNDAY POST meme hosted by KIMBA, THE CAFFEINATED BOOK REVIEWER! It a chance to look back and ahead. Thanks Kimba! This is a book blogger’s chance to be not too bookish, to reminisce about the past week and about life, and to prognosticate on the coming week!
Here’s today’s Sunday Song:
Easy Like Sunday Morning by the Commodores
Lionel Ritchie belts out the tune which takes us back a while to 1977; I had just finished high school and I was on my way to an early start of college at sixteen. Going to college early was the worst mistake of my life. But that was a final summer of not job, no bills, no anything but lazing by the pool with my boyfriend, or breaking up with him, making up.
I also got my driver’s license that year. It only took three road tests.
I don’t really like the lyrics of this song except for the title/chorus, but you cannot beat the melody. Here’s what I found on Songfacts.com:
Commodores lead singer Lionel Richie wrote this song, which became a crossover hit for the band, bringing them into Pop and Adult Contemporary territory when they were previously pure Funk. This led to more soft hits for the band like “Still” and “Three Times A Lady.” When Richie went solo in 1981, he became a Soft Rock superstar with similar songs.
In this song, Richie sings about giving up on a relationship because it’s bringing him down. He feels liberated after the breakup and has a sense of calm that’s “easy like Sunday morning.” The song is often misinterpreted as a sweet love song. http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=8751

Thanks to the Commodores and Lionel Ritchie!
