Double Shot: The Song Stuck In My Head THAT ALSO Makes Me Smile: “A MATTER OF TRUST” by BILLY JOEL (1986)

Some Love Is Just A Lie Of The Heart

The Cold Remains Of What Began With A Passionate Start

And, They May Not Want It To End

...But It Will

Its Just A Question Of When

Ive Lived Long Enough To Have Learned

The Closer You Get To The Fire

The More You Get Burned

But, That Wont Happen To Us

…’Cause Its Always Been A Matter Of Trust

***[{*}]***

The 1986 Single Album Version OfA MATTER OF TRUSTBy BILLY JOEL !!!

Now, I Know Youre An Emotional Girl

It Took A Lot For You To Not Lose Your Faith In This World

But, I Cant Offer You Proof

But, Youre Going To Face A Moment Of Truth...

Its Hard When Youre Always Afraid

You Just Recover When Another Belief Is Betrayed

So Break My Heart If You Must

Its A Matter Of Trust

…Honestly…

(almost) Depressed Me.

If Life Truly Is A Game…

Sheesh.

Oldies Station My Ass.

BILLY JOEL?!?

Really?!?

The Man’s AMAZING.

The Music Is WONDERFUL.

And, I Did Manage To Smile Throughout My Listen-Along.

So…

…My Peeps…

…WHY…

…Does The…

ELVIS PRESLEY

…Version…

…Of The Song…

SUCH A NIGHT

…Make ME Smile???

Well…

…I First Heard It Over 20-Years-Ago.

My Mother And I Used To Go Practically Everywhere Together…

…And She Loved Loved LOVED Listening To The “Oldies” Station On The Radio.

Whenever A Quality Tune Would Pop On…

…She’d Sing Right Along With It.

I Would TRY To Sing Along…

…But…

…For The Most Part…

…I Never Knew The Words To Any Of Those Songs.

One Day, Though…

…They Were Doing An ELVIS-MARATHON.

HEARTBREAK HOTEL

IT’S NOW OR NEVER

IN THE GHETTO

etc etc etc

The Last ELVIS Song I Was Fortunate To Hear That Day Was This One…

SUCH A NIGHT

…And I Was Immediately IN LUST With It!

It Was Cool.

It Was Fast-Paced.

It Was Super-Catchy.

It Was ELVIS As I’d Never Really Heard Him.

So…

…All Of That Made It EXCEPTIONALLY MEMORABLE!

Unfortunately…

…I Wasn’t In A Position To Record It At The Time…

…So That ONE TIME Was All I’d Hear Of It Again Until 2001.

In 2001…

…I Went To The Theater…

…And I Saw The Flick…

3000 MILES TO GRACELAND

!!! !!! !!!

Needless To Say…

…The LUST Returned!!!

SUCH A NIGHT

…Was Featuredย Prominently In The Film…

…And I Even Made Sure To Stay During The Closing Credits So I Could Listen To The Entire Song While I Watched…

KURT RUSSELL

…Do His Best ELVIS Impression…

…And Of Course…

KEVIN COSTNER

…Having A Regular Pant-Load Of Fun Fun FUN!!!

The First Chance I Got…

…You Betcha…

…I Was On The AMAZON.COM Placing My Order For The Soundtrack!

I Eventually Would Own The Film, Also!!!

SUCH A NIGHT

…Is A Song I Truly Love Love LOVE…

…And I’ve Had A Copy Of It…

…In One Format Or Another…

…Ever Since My Re-Discovery!!!

It’s A Song That Reminds Me Of Those Car Rides…

…Listening To The “Oldies” Station…

…Trying To Sing Along With My Mother To Songs I Didn’t Even Know.

(no, by the way, I do not have an Oedipus-Complex, as this is one time where the lyrics of the song aren't as important as the song itself, and the memories it evokes. sheesh.)

And…

…Of Course…

…It Reminds Me Of Watching The Movie…

3000 MILES TO GRACELAND

…Which Will ALSO Always Have A Special Place In My Heart.

BUT…

…We’ve Already Discussed That In A Prior-Bloggin’ing…
