“Hold My Hand”
Today, the Guitar Train debuts another new monthly stop. This stop is called “Lyrics Look” where Quirky T looks at lyrics that either she likes, which interest her, or she thinks are especially creative.
The first theme of the lyrics we’re looking at is holding hands. The one song that immediately comes to mind is, of course, The Beatles’ “I Want to Hold Your Hand”. It is a simple sentiment, yet classic. On a similar track, yet not as sweet, is “Hold My Hand” by Hootie and the Blowfish. http://youtu.be/xoW3bqnr7tw
In “I See Your Smile”, Gloria Estefan used hand holding for strength. http://youtu.be/et9C32GMJQ4
One of the most relatable mentions of hand holding in songs for me is Huey Lewis and the News in “Do You Believe in Love”. http://youtu.be/BzIbyDbmsyg These lyrics resonant with me as twice in my life that has happened to me. On those occasions, the words weren’t actually said (or sung) to me but both men offered me a hand and ended up taking my heart. Unfortunately, they also broke my heart.
Let’s not leave this station on a sad note, be sure to stay aboard the Guitar Train for next month’s “Lyrics Look” when we look at lyrics about smiling.
