For Once In This Post! ๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽท

Inspired by the song, For Once in My Life! A swing song written by Ron Miller and Orlando Murden for Motown Records’ Stein & Van Stock publishing company and first recorded in 1965.

It was first recorded by Barbara McNair, but first released in 1966 by Jean DuShon. Other early version of the ballad were issued by the Four Tops, The Temptations and Tony Bennett and Diana Ross, whose recording was the first to reach the pop charts.

And yes! Who can forget Stevie Wonder!


This is my rendition recently released by Bastardized Records, LLC!


For once in (this post) …

I have something (maybe) worth (posting)

Something (surely lacking) (before) …

For once (unabashed)

I can go

where (this post) leads me

and somehow I know (I’m not wrong)

For once I can (write)

what my heart (could only scheme) of …

Long before I knew …

(Ouch) …

Someone (informed or deformed)

like you …

(Oh) my dreams

(have finally) come true!

For once in (this post)

I won’t let (bad vibes sting) me

Not like they’ve (Ouch) …

(stung) me before

For once I have someone

I (hope) won’t

(eventually unfollow) me …

(So) Iโ€™m not

(Hopeless and Friendless In Seattle)



Actually I’m old and senile and live in South Florida!

  4. I truly like how you are not afraid to satirize any subject.
    It always brings a smile on my face.
    I remember the version of Stevie Wonder.
    Thanks for the laughs! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

      Cool! Like a slang colloquialism popular during the late 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.
