I’m trying to recall the last time I heard someone knock on a door. We live in a rural area on a dead end street. We can see and hear when people drive up to our house, so we’re usually waiting at the door. If not, the doorbell is the go-to way to catch our attention. The anemic brrrrrinnng! of our signal leaves something to be desired, I must say. Give me the solid sound of knuckles connecting with wood any day.
This week, yeah write posed this ultimate question: who’s that knocking at the door? Let’s see what song titles can supply an answer!
One wouldn’t have to pose this question people didn’t show up without being asked.
“Uninvited” by Alanis Morisette
One way to solve the mystery is obvious:
“Let ’em in” by Paul McCartney and Wings
Sometimes you have to be careful about opening your door to an unknown person on the other side.
“Mack the Knife” performed by Bobby Darin
Sometimes it is the visitor who should be careful. In this situation, the better question might be “who’s that sleeping in Grandma’s bed?”
“Little Red Riding Hood” by Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs
And then there’s that time when you take too long to answer the door and never know the answer to the question.
“She’s Not There” by The Zombies
