#AtoZChallenge2020 – New Attitude & Never Give Up

N2020

So this week has been a crazy week and so I am behind three days. Today I will be posting for the letters “N”, “O” and “P”. All in separate posts by the way. For the letter “N” for the #AtoZChallenge I have chosen one of my favorite songs by Miss Patti Labelle,  New Attitude.

This song has always been one of my anthem, especially when I have gone through a really rough patch with alcoholism or cocaine addiction. It is so important that when a person falls into relapse or multiple relapses that each time they come back with new and stronger resolve and attitude regarding their recovery.

Often times addiction, alcoholism, depression, or any other host of mental or physical health issues can cause us to lose hope and feel defeated. I know from experience that it is so important to work hard at having the ability and wherewithal to never give up. That is why I have also seen For King and Country’s  Never Give Up as another one of my anthems.

You can find the lyrics by clicking on the song titles. That’s what’s in  My Rattled Cage, thanks for stopping by!!

 

Playing Catch Up – Love Is In Da Blog – Day 19

The category for Day 19 was for a love song when we left school for #LoveIsInDaBlog. I chose “Love has Finally Come at Last” by Bobby Womack and Patti LaBelle released in 1984 which is when I would have graduated high school!!

That’s what’s in “My Rattled Cage”, thanks for stopping by!!!”, thanks for stopping by!!!

 

Lyric:
Love has finally come at last
And I’m never gonna give it back
Ooh, no, no, no

Love has finally come at last
And I’m never gonna give it back
Ooh, no, no, no, no, no

Just like an old cliche
One that simply says
You can’t miss what you never had

I thought that love was just a feeling
That I’d give to him and in return
He’d give it back

But it’s more than a friendly sensation
Oh, I had to be tripping out on the girls
Body vibration
But I knew, oh, oh, oh yeah

Love has finally come at last
And I’m never gonna give it back
Oh, no, no, no

I’m so glad, I can stand here today and say

Love has finally come at last
And I’m never gonna give it back
Oh, no, no, no, no, no

Listen to me now

Just like a tender young virgin
In her first love affair
I doubt if she’d ever do it again
Would she even care

But as time pressed on
Ooh, ooh, the girl caught on
Nothing more she’d do with the boy
She seemed to want it, want it, want it

But there’s one side of love
I’d never, never, never known
Baby, until you came along
I can, I can tell the world

Love has finally come at last
And I’m never gonna give it back
Oh, no, no, no

Love has finally come at last
And I’m never gonna give it back
Oh, no, no, no, no, no

Break it down to me easy
‘Cos everybody needs some kind
Of love in their life
Some kind of shape, form or fashion

Some kind of shape, form or fashion
Oh, and just like the flowers need the rain
And they need, they need love to grow

I got you baby
That’s all you’ll ever need
Chased away the blues in my life
You’ve got a way of making everything alright

Baby, baby, baby, baby
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Somebody, understand me now

Love has finally come at last
And I’m never gonna give it back
Ooh, no, no, no

When something happen good to you
Seem like you just wanna
Let everybody know, let everybody know

Love has finally come at last
And I’m never gonna give it back
Ooh, no, no, no, no, no
