The SONG challenge will encourage you to use either a title of a song, a phrase or any part of the lyrics from a song from the artist/group mentioned. Those titles and lyrics can often inspire you or match our feelings of the moment.
Are you up to the challenge?
On March 20th, we lost an icon in the music industry with the death of Kenny Rogers. He has a lot of songs that could inspire you, either with their title or their lyrics.
In April, get inspired by one of Kenny’s songs. What will you use?April 4, 2020 at 8:27 pm #41117MinkaParticipant
Starting out before he was country … the years of psychedelic art and aspirations, mushrooms and unfortunately, drugs. 1967. Smash hit and long on the charts. Kenny Rogers and the First Edition. A novel sound and parent hated lyrics. It was all new back then … and soooooo tame by today’s standards. Awww … look how young he was.April 6, 2020 at 11:01 am #41167
Love your “album cover” Great job!April 6, 2020 at 12:36 pm #41170April 6, 2020 at 1:00 pm #41172trish williamsParticipant
A lovely beautiful man, I was lucky enough to see he once when he came to London. Love his music, hard to pick which one, loved Island in the stream , Lady and buy me a Rose, but Amazing Grace always made my spine tingle. But he was great at song like Lucille and Ruby along with this one The Gambler.
Job well done Minka

I’ve loved his music since the early ’70’s, Lynda. I’m still wiping a tear from my eyes. This is a lovely tribute to him. Thank you.April 13, 2020 at 6:52 pm #41377Elaine BanksParticipant
I too was very fortunate to have met him while I was working at the Red Lobster in Athens, GA. he came in and I got to serve him and his party, he was very kind and gracious and left a great tip too! I can’t pick my favorite song of his, there are so many but I really like Lucille, because that’s my late sisters’ name and I used to tease her with it, but of course, I love the Gambler, Don’t Fall In Love With A Dreamer has to be my all-time favorite.April 21, 2020 at 4:27 pm #41703Royanne HewkoParticipant
Kenny Rogers was one of favourite singers. I enjoy listening to his voice, when I hear it I close my eyes and just listen ….. not sure if it is the raspy voice or the smoothness, but full of expression to me.April 21, 2020 at 5:01 pm #41707Isabel VasquezParticipant
It’s beautiful. Great work Royanne Hewko.
