Song Suggestions for BBM Radio!!
« on: January 13, 2007, 02:43:11 am »
here is a thread for us to offer Eric our suggestions for new songs for BBM radio...I dont see a current playlist....but here is a song I like for BBM...

You have to hear it to really 'get it'

Yesterday When I was Young

Roy Clark



Yesterday when I was young,
The taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue,
I teased at life as if it were a foolish game,
The way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame

The thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned,
I always built, alas, on weak and shifting sand,
I lived by night and shunned the naked light of day,
And only now I see how the years ran away

Yesterday, when I was young,
So many happy songs were waiting to be sung,
So many wild pleasures lay in store for me,
And so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see

I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out,
I never stopped to think what life was all about,
And every conversation I can now recall,
Concerned itself with me, and nothing else at all

Yesterday, the moon was blue,
And every crazy day brought something new to do,
I used my magic age as if it were a wand,
And never saw the waste and emptiness beyond

The game of love I played with arrogance and pride,
And every flame I lit too quickly, quickly died,
The friends I made all seemed somehow to drift away,
And only I am left on stage to end the play

There are so many songs in me that won't be sung,
I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue,
The time has come for me to pay,
For yesterday, when I was young

and a woman...come on it is Dolly!! you can't have a country station and not have Dolly!



Artist/Band: Parton Dolly
Lyrics for Song: What Is It My Love
Lyrics for Album: White Limozeen



You hurt me, you use me, you lie
You're heartless and hateful and cold
You don't care how you make me cry
You must have the last word
And be in control
What is it about you I love

You're selfish and stubborn and proud
You're arrogant, boastful and vain
You're careless and thoughtless and loud
A flirt and a tease
And you cause me such pain
What is it about you I love
What is it, what is it my love

There's something about you
That I seem to need
I have a hunger you know how to feed
And you satisfy me like nobody else
Those moments of heaven
Are worth all this hell

And I know you love me in your own crazy way
And I know you need me more than you can say
I may be a fool but I'll never give up
'Cause there's something about you I love
What is it, what is it my love

And there's something about me
That you seem to need
'Cause you have a hunger I know how to feed
And I satisfy you like nobody else
Those moments of heaven
Are worth all this hell

And I know in my heart that you want to be good
I understand that you're misunderstood
You're insecure and defensively tough
There's something about you my love
What is it, what is it my love
There's something about you
That I seem to need
What is it, what is it my love

Artist/Band: Milsap Ronnie
Lyrics for Song: (I'd Be) A Legend in My Time
Lyrics for Album: 40 N1 Hits


If heartaches brought fame
In love's crazy game
I'd be a legend in my time
If they gave gold statuettes
For tears and regrets
Id be a legend in my time

But they dont give awards
And theres no praise or fame
For a heart that's been broken
over love thats in vain

If loneliness meant world acclaim
Ev'ryone would know my name
I'd be a legend in my time

But they dont give awards
And theres no praise or fame
For a heart that's been broken
Over love thats in vain

If loneliness meant world acclaim
Then ev'ryone would know my name
I'd be a legend in my time
I'd be a legend in my time

*Eric taking notes*

Jess!  Thank you for the suggestions.  :D

I've spent the last few weeks combing the "Songs that make me thing of BBM" and "Songs related to BBM" threads and I've got quite a hefty list to go through.  I'll add your suggestions to 'the list'.  Can't guarantee all of them will debut this month, but perhaps they will debut in future months.  (We will be changing/rotating/updating the playlist once a month.)

Our next BBM Radio Newsletter will come out this week, and our new playlist for January will go live on Monday 01/22 at 9:00pm EST.  More info will be in the newsletter.  Watch for it later this week.

Keep those suggestions coming!  :D

Eric

Yep, I've got them all.  ;)

Again, can't promise all songs will be added this month.  I have almost 50 song suggestions, and about 15 slots open for new songs.  I'm gonna do my best to get the most relevant to BBM songs posted in those 15 slots.

Artist: Bill Anderson
Song: Still
Album: 20 Greatest Hits



(Still) though you broke my heart (still) though we're far apart (I love you still)
(Still) after all this time (still) you're still on my mind (I love you still)
I've lost count of the hours and I've lost track of the days
In fact I've lost just about everything since you went away
Everything that is except the memories you left me
And that's one things that no one can mar
I don't know who you're with I don't even know where you've gone
My only hope is that some day you might hear this song
And you'll know I wrote it especially for you and I love you wherever you are
(Still) after all this time (still) you're still on my mind (I love you still)
This flame in my heart is like an eternal fire
For every day it burns hotter and every day it burns higher
And I haven't been able to put out one little flicker not even with all these tears
My friends think I'm crazy and maybe I am
But I'll carry this torch just as long as I can
For someday you might just decide to come home
And I want you to know I'm still here
(Still) thought you broke my heart (still) though you're far apart (I love you still)
