Music Mondays

Barking at the Moon

Grandma benefits include watching kid movies with the little ones!  I’ve seen “Moana” at least 25 times, and many, many other classics of course, but the one that I have slowly fallen in love with is “Bolt”.  It’s a story about a girl and her dog, Bolt, who are the “actors” in a superhero cartoon.  The adorable dog has a lightening bolt emblazoned on his side and is the girl’s partner and protector.  Bolt lived his whole life on the set of his action TV show, where he believes he has superpowers. When separated from the studio by accident, he meets a female alley cat named Mittens and a hamster named Rhino who help him on his journey to find his way home. Along the way, he learns that he doesn’t have superpowers and that the show is not real.  Spoiler alert…in the end he becomes a real life hero…why wouldn’t he!?

The music is charming and I have fallen for the mangy cat and her ballad, “Barking at the Moon”.   It is a sweet reminder that no matter where I am on this new journey, home is all I need.

“Barking at the Moon” by Jenny Lewis

I have got so much to give, I swear I do.
I may not have nine lives, this one feels brand new.
Yes I’ve lived a good one.
I have tried to be true.
There are some things I never realized, till I met you.
How the wind feels on my cheeks
when I’m barking at the moon.
There is no home like the one you’ve got, cuz that home belongs to you.
Woo Woo! Here I come.
Woo Woo! Back to you.
There is no home like the one you’ve got
cuz that home belongs to you.

Well I was in trouble, bad.
I was so confused.
I may not see in color babe, but I sure can feel blue.
I have been a lot of things, they may not all be true.
My experience was so mysterious, till I met you.
Now the sun will rise in the east
but I’m barking at the moon
There is no home like the one you’ve got
cuz that home belongs to you.
Woo Woo! Here I come.
Woo Woo! Back to you.
There is no home like the one you’ve got
cuz that home belongs to you.

There is no home like the one you’ve got cuz that home belongs to you.

There is no home like the one you’ve got, cuz that home belongs to you…
