Song Lyric Sunday #1

I love that Mel over at Crushed Caramel is pairing all of the participations in The Great Bloggers’ Bake-Off with a song. This was inspired by Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday Challenge, a man after my own heart as he posts the challenges well in advance!

Since Lockdown commenced way back in March in France, my beloved husband and I hve been enjoying weekly musical evenings. Thanks to his subscription to Apple music we’ve been exploring the catalogues of our favourite artists but, more importantly, finding new ones. And, even though lockdown is but a distant memory, we’ve retained these evenings. Hopefully, taking part in this challenge will allow me to uncover some interesting music.

Not unnaturally this week Jim has the food and cooking and eating related prompts of Baking/Bread/Cake/Pie/Picnic which he hopes will suit everyone. Here goes:-

My modest contribution to the Great Bloggers’ Bake-Off was an apple pie layer cake so I thought I needed a song with apples in it and hence chose Beady Eye’s “Second Bite of the Apple.”

Beady Eye (2009 – 2014) were an English rock band formed by former Oasis members Liam Gallagher (vocals), Gem Archer (guitar), Andy Bell (guitar) and Chris Sharrock (drums). The band was created when Oasis’ lead guitarist and primary songwriter Noel Gallagher quit in August 2009, after which the remaining members decided to rename themselves and continue making music. The band only released two studio albums, Different Gear, Still Speeding (2011) and BE (2013). The track above is from the second album and here are those all-important lyrics:-

Shake my tree, where’s the apple for me?
Tickle my feet with the enemy
No point laughing if you don’t know why
I fold my love just to hear her smile
The world is up if you’re tough enough
The world is up if you’re tough enough
Girl in the queue got an eye on you
Think you’re in and she’s looking for sin
Yes, you’re not wrong, she wants to know what’s in your pocket
Singing that song, dig it all night long
The world is up if you’re tough enough
The world is up if you’re tough enough
The world is up if you’re tough enough
The world is… if you’re tough enough
Come on, show what you love now
Come on, show what you love now
Come on, show what you love now
Come on, show what you love now
Shake my tree, where’s the apple for me?
Tickle my feet with the enemy
No point laughing if you don’t know why
I fold my love just to hear her smile
The world is up if you’re tough enough
The world is up if you’re tough enough
The world is up if you’re tough enough
The world is… if you’re tough enough
The world is up if you’re tough enough
The world is up if you’re tough enough
The world is up if you’re tough enough
The world is… if you’re tough enough
Come on, show what you love now
Come on, show what you love now
Come on, show what you love now
Come on, show what you love now

  1. I had no idea that Liam and the boys had renamed themselves as Beady Eye!
    I saw Oasis play back in the day. I was working for a record company up in Manchester for a short time…and it was all very exciting…for a while.

  2. Sheree, welcome to Song Lyric Sunday. I learned about a new band today and how they formed. This is my kind of song. The drums, the guitar distortion, the lyrics, all wonderful.
