It Calls To Me to Chained To The Rhythm Parody 
A memory of a song calls to a lover 
The meaning of a song escapes the memory of this Perry 


It Calls To Me (Martin verse) 

In a mist it calls to me
Portrait of a memory
Something lost won’t let me be
To its arms I’m bound to flee
-
Kisses calling from some past
Mid a song that couldn’t last
Heartbeats that were gone too fast
A forever there was cast
-
Dream that now is over me
Promises return at last
Passing chance to hold on fast
To its arms forever flee
-
There to linger midst the past
In sweet fruits of memory
Drifting from how can this be
From a love all this was cast
-
Why its arms I once did flee
In this dream I’m bound to be
Frozen times this memory
In a mist it calls to me 


Once again a lover is listens to a song from memory in this Martin verse. I got the idea for the Martin verse from the symphony form of music. A melody is introduced, It undergoes a development, to reappear changed. In a Martin verse four rhyming words are introduced. Four more rhyming word are added. The two sets of words are mixed up twice. The original words reappear in reverse order. A1/A2/A3/A4, B1/B2/B3/ B4, A1/B2/B3/A4. B1/A2/A3/B4, A4/A3/A2/A1  

After Arlene's passing and four years of mourning (more of respect than sadness), the Masons encouraged me to consider being seen with a women. I was working with many youth groups and they thought it would look better for my image. So it was that I met, courted and married Amor. Amor is much different than Arlene. Her biggest magic is making problems vanish. If there are bill problems, plumbing problems, car troubles, anything; Amor makes it all go away. It's not that she does anything directly. Her behavior or something she says makes any problem unimportant, vanish. There is only one problem. A person can die of happiness. Amor is that good. Into this bliss comes a mist. A mist of a memory of a life well lived. It happens in the quiet moments. One of the things about living a full life is that memories return in mass, making it confusing for a time to sort out what's going on. Arlene returns in memories. All the marvels of a life well lived. Amor knows it happens. She doesn't mind. She is self confident enough and she enjoys making me happy.

People may say how lucky. People may enjoy stories with a happy ending. I say we are all stories with a happy ending. Happy ending? With all the troubles in the world. Yes, there are troubles in the world. I have had my share of troubles. We all have troubles. I prefer to put my focus on the good things all around. When I go to the doughnut shop I do not ask for their worst cup of coffee. Yes, there are troubles in the world. There are waves upon waves of people working very hard to make a better world. There are simple acts of kindness all around. A man stealing a cell phone. A man giving food to a homeless person. Who do we focus on? (Not to mention that stolen cell phones can be made useless, valueless.) I am willing to bet that everyone reading this is involved in something good. How does it make us feel when our efforts take back stage to troubles? I believe, besides what the media is inundated with, that there are many, many more people working for the betterment of all than those causing troubles. The day of peace, the perfect world is coming. We, who are working toward that day. let us Enjoy.


Here's to memories: Andrew Lloyd Webber "Memory" 

Is there too much hidden meaning in some of our songs 


"Chained to the Rhythm" by Katy Perry is about people who live live far away from difficulty or unhappiness and who aren't willing to come down out of these "bubble[s]" to see real problems that need to be solved in the world. She doesn't specify the kind of problems and leaves it to her audience to apply her song to situations on their own though there does seem to be a pretty substantial political charge to this song. If that wasn't confusing enough, The Key of Awesome has created a parody only slightly more confusing. 
Rather than trying to figure this out, just laugh. "Katy Perry - Chained To The Rhythm PARODY! The Key of Awesome #118"

  3. Usually those who say others are lucky are rather umm lazy to go out and get what they have themselves. But yeah, we can sure focus on happy and go all happily ever after if we like.

  6. Amor is a wise woman. The man you became is at least in part a direct result of your love for Arlene. It is hard to think of a better foundation to build on than love.

    Very true. One should not be bogged down over little distractions. It makes life more interesting if one stays focused on tackling real issues!

    1. You are so right. "Real Issues" can be of a personal nature.
      Thank you for this insight.
