This challenge has become one of my favorites, but like all things, it must come to an end. It was fun while it lasted. This is my final post in the Song Challenge, and I want to thank  The Bag Lady for considering me for this challenge.

The Rules:

  • Post a different song quote for 5 consecutive days.
  • Post what the song quote means to you (optional).
  • Post the song from which the quote is from.
  • Nominate 2 different bloggers every day of the challenge.

My Fifth Song:

Another Day In Paradise by Phil Collins

Album: ….But Seriously

Year: 1989

She calls out to the man on the street
“Sir, can you help me?
It’s cold, and I’ve nowhere to sleep
Is there somewhere you can tell me?”

He walks on, doesn’t look back
He pretends he can’t hear her
Starts to whistle as he crosses the street
Seems embarrassed to be there

Is it weird that whenever I am approached by a beggar or homeless person, I always remember the words to this song? I have a hard time passing the less fortunate on the street without offering a helping hand.

‘Another Day In Paradise’ addresses the issue of homelessness and how people often turn a blind eye to this problem. In my homeland of Jamaica, there are many beggars on the streets. Some of these individuals are in this predicament because they fell on hard times, while some are suffering from mental illnesses. Whatever the reasons, you can’t travel through the island’s capital without seeing these unfortunate people.

I was surprised when I came to America and saw how many homeless persons there were scattered throughout the cities and transportation stations. Some of us have gotten numb to the plight of these people, and as they suffer, we just live another day in paradise.

Nominations

If you have been following this challenge series, you may have realized that I have been flouting the nomination rule. Well, in the past I have nominated people for challenges/awards and for whatever reason they have neglected to participate. For this reason, I decided to skip that part of the challenge. Consider it an open nomination and feel free to participate if you so desire.
