Stayin' Alive

We'll remember this year, distinctly, as a time when our primary focus was "stayin' alive." Which led me to re-consider the lyrics of that classic song:

You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breakin' and everybody shakin'
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive

Life goin' nowhere, somebody help me
Somebody help me, yeah
Life goin' nowhere, somebody help me, yeah
I'm stayin' alive


  1. Such a great song! How about "In the City" by Joe Walsh, from "The Warriors" (still a guilty pleasure for me - I love that movie).

    Somewhere out there on that horizon
    Out beyond the neon lights
    I know there must be somethin' better
    But there's nowhere else in sight
    It's survival in the city
    When you live from day to day
    City streets don't have much pity
    When you're down, that's where you'll stay

  2. Here in AZ where we completely lost control of the Virus, the Stayin' Alive routine is getting more complex by the day!

    1. I heard that. My brother-in-law's family lives in Tucson so we pay attention to your state.

  3. It's amazing how many lyrics seem to be apt for these times, Stayin' Alive being a case in point. xxx

  4. Ah! Ah! Ahhh! Staying aliiiiive.

    It has been a personal hell.

  5. I've seen this movie hundreds of times. I love it!

  6. Doing my very best to stay alive here between WI and MN. Too many people acting like there is no virus. It's a scary time.

  7. Profoundly true. While we're very fortunate that BC has not (yet?) been hit as brutually as many parts of the world (let alone various corners of Canada), it still sends a distinct chill down my spine, no matter how many times it happens, when I see people with no outwardly visible regard for the risks of the pandemic.

    And with each mask-less face, cluster of strangers, or non-essential business that reopens, I brace all the more for future waves that may still wash up upon the shores of each of our lives.
