Electric Light Orchestra - Confusion (1979)



Electric Light Orchestra
"Confusion"
Album Discovery (1979 Jet)

LYRICS:

Everywhere the sun is shining.
All around the world it's shining.
But cold winds blow across your mind.
Confusion--it's such a terrible shame.
Confusion--you don't know what you're sayin'.
You've lost your love and you just can't carry on.
You feel there's no-one there for you to lean on.

Every night you're out there darlin'.
You're always out there runnin'.
And I see that lost look in your eyes.
Confusion,I don't know what I should do.
Confusion,I leave it all up to you.
You've lost your love and you just can't carry on.
You feel there's no-one there for you to lean on.

Dark is the road you wander.
And as you stand there under.
The starry sky,you feel sad inside.
Confusion,you know it's drivin' me wild.
Confusion,it comes as no big surprise.
You've lost your love and you just can't carry on.
You feel there's no-one there for you to lean on.

Album: Look How Long (1990 - 10 Records)

LYRICS:

Dreams are dreams and they do come true
I believe in dreams don't you
We all need something to hold on to
Analyse the situation
You have got to take control
Do the best in what you think you know
You got to tell yourself
Try and you will progress
There more to life than you know
Don't give up the fight
Take one day at a time
You've just got to have heart so

Don't be a fool no
Don't throw your life away
Don't be a fool no
Don't waste your life away
Ah don't be a fool
Don't throw your life away
Don't be a fool
Don’t waste your life away
Sort your life out yeah yeah yeah yeah

Sleepless nights hallucinations
Can't get up the day is through
Here's the night the stars they look at you
Puff the magic dragons got you
Locked into his highs and lows
Then you find it harder to breakthrough

You got to tell yourself
Try and you will progress
There more to life than you know so much more than you know
Don't give up the fight
Take one day at a time one day
You've just got to have heart so

Don't be a fool
Don't throw your life away
Don't be a fool
Don't waste your life away
Don't be a fool
Don't throw your life away
Don't be a fool
Don't waste your life away
Sort your life out uh yeah yeah yeah yeah

[Chorus x2]

Sort you life out yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oh yeah

Paul McCartney - My Brave Face (1989)



Paul McCartney
"My Brave Face"
Album: Flowers in the Dirt (1989 Parlophone)

LYRICS:

My brave, My brave, My brave face

I've been living in style,
Unaccustomed as I am
To the luxury life,
I've been hitting the town
And it didn't hit back.

I've been doing the rounds
Unaccustomed as I am
To the time on my hands,
Now I don't have to tell anybody
When I'm going to get back.

Ever since you went away
I've had this sentimental inclination
Not to change a single thing
As I pull the sheet back on the bed,
I want to go bury my head
In your pillow.

Now that I'm alone again
I can't stop breaking down again
The simplest things set me off again
And take me to that place
Where I can't find my brave face,
Where I can't find my brave face,
My brave, my brave, my brave face.
My brave face.

I've been living a lie
Unaccustomed as I am
To the work of a housewife,
I've been breaking up
Dirty dishes and throwing them away.

Ever since you left I have been trying to
Compose a 'baby will you please come home' note
Meant for you.
As I clear away another
Untouched t.v. dinner
From the table I laid for two.

Now that I'm alone again
I can't stop breaking down again
The simplest things set me off again
And take me to that place
Where I can't find my brave face,
Where I can't find my brave face,
My brave, my brave, my brave face.
My brave face.

Irving Berlin - Cheek to Cheek (1935) Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers



Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers
Movie: Top Hat (1935)

LYRICS:

Heaven
I'm in heaven
And my heart beats
So that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find
The happiness I seek
When we're out together
Dancing cheek to cheek

Heaven
I'm in heaven
And the cares
That hung around me
Through the week
Seem to vanish
Like a gamblers
Lucky streak
When we're out together
Dancing cheek to cheek

Oh
I love to climb a mountain
And to reach the highest peak
But it doesn't thrill me
Half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek

Oh
I love to go out fishing
In a river, or a creek
But I don't enjoy it half
As much as dancing
Cheek to cheek

Dance with me
I want my arm about you
That charm about you
Will carry me through to

Heaven
I'm in heaven
And my heart beats
So that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find
That happiness I seek
When we're out together
Swinging cheek to cheek

Come on and dance with me
I want my arm about you
That charm about you
Will carry me through
Right up to

Heaven
I'm in heaven
And my heart beats
So that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find
That happiness I seek
When we're out
Together dancing
Out together dancing
Out together dancing
Cheek to chee

You can be my partner in crime.

Chaz Jankel - Glad To Know You (1982)



Chaz Jankel
"Glad to Know You"
Album: Chasanova (1981 A&M)

LYRICS:

You wandered in upon my life
And haven't lost me yet
Said the turkey to the carving knife:
"What you give is what you get"
A fresh and lovely summers day,
We thought would never end
Said the bloodhound to the stag at bay:
"I thought you were my friend"

I thought you are my friend
Glad to know you, and by way of welcome
Pleased to meet you

We laugh and cry as lovers will
And howl at many moons
Said the waiter as he wrote the bill,
"Please return the spoons"
As hand in hand we wander on
Through life's own wondrous maze
Said Robin Hood to Little John,
"There must be other ways"

There must be other ways
Glad to know you, a way of saying welcome
Pleased to meet you
Pleased to meet you

We rest and kissed and talked and strolled
A very precious hill
Said knife and fork to sausage roll:
"It's pinky in the middle"
And thus it seems come rain and shine,
The patience still unfolds
Said the pike upon the Angler's line:
"I wish that I could talk"

I wish that I could talk
Glad to know you, and you're very welcome
Pleased to meet you

I wish that I could talk
Glad to know you, a way of saying welcome
Pleased to meet you
Pleased to meet you

We rest and kissed and talked and strolled
A very precious hill
Said knife and fork to sausage roll:
"It's pinky in the middle"
And thus it seems come rain and shine,
The patience still unfolds
Said the pike upon the Angler's line:
"I wish that I could talk"

I wish that I could talk
Glad to know you, and you're very welcome
Pleased to meet you

I wish that I could talk
Glad to know you, and you're very welcome
Pleased to meet you

I wish that I could talk

(Instrumental thing)

I wish that I could talk
Glad to know you, and you're very welcome
Pleased to meet you

ABC - All Of My Heart (1982)



ABC
"All of My Heart"
Album: The Lexicon of Love (1982 Neutron Records)

LYRICS:

Once upon a time when we were friends

I gave you my heart. The story ends

No happy ever after, now were friends



Wish upon a star if that might help

The stars collide if you decide

Wish upon a star if that might help



What's it like to have loved and to lose her touch?

What's it like to have loved and to lose that much?



Well I hope and I pray

That maybe someday

You'll walk in the room with my heart

Add and subtract

But as a matter of fact

Now that you're gone I still want you back

Remembering

Surrendering

Remembering that part

All of my heart



Spilling up pink silk and coffee lace

You hook me up, I rendevouz at your place

Your lipstick and your lip gloss seals my fate



Sentimental powers might help you now

But skip the hearts and flowers, skip the ivory towers

You'll be disappointed and I'll lose a friend



No I won't be told there's a crock of gold

at the end of the rainbow

Or that pleasure and pain, sunshine and rain

Might make this love grow



But I hope and I pray

That maybe someday

You'll walk in the room with my heart

Add and subtract

But as a matter of fact

Now that you're gone I still want you back

Remembering

Surrendering

The kindest cut's the cruellest part

All of my heart



Yes I hope and I pray

That maybe someday

You'll walk in the room with my heart

And I shrug and I say

That maybe today

You'll come home soon

Surrendering

Remembering

Surrendering that part-All of my heart



All of my heart

Monie Love - It's A Shame (My Sister) (1990)



Monie Love
"It's a Shame (My Sister)"
Album: Down to Earth (1990 Warner Bros)

LYRICS:

My sister, my sister
Tell me what the trouble is
I'll try to listen good
And give the best advice that I can give
So, what's up with you this time?
Your honey took a dive
And now he's playin with your mind?
Oh no, this can not be accepted
The feelings that belong to you must be protected
Hold up, time out
I shout, get it together sister
Tell him to be nice or ditch the mister

It's a shame
The way you mess around with my heart
It's a shame
The way you hurt me
It's a shame
The way you mess around with my heart
It's a shame
The way you hurt me

Get back on your feet, please
I'm beggin you to check out all your own needs
Don't let nobody see you in a state of grievin' over the brother
There's another possibility
Which is for you to work out where you went wrong
I guarantee to you that it will not take long
For you to make your mind up if the two of you belong
You know where honey's head at
And where he's comin from
Get it out your system
Don't be another victim
This took the nerve, oh boy
He really picked 'em, whaddya know
It's time for you to show you're not sleepin
A progress report on the two of you you're keepin
Peekin through the peephole
To see if honey's sneakin
You estimated right
That night the other weekend
Collectively the facts should conclude the decision
You caught the brother in a terrible disposition

It's a shame
The way you mess around with my heart
It's a shame
The way you hurt me
It's a shame
The way you mess around with my heart
It's a shame
The way you hurt me

That's it, pack it up
Be wise my sister
'Cause the facts keep stackin up
Tell him to kiss the - you know what
Make sure the door is shut behind you
I do believe the brother's out of luck and stuck
But that's not your P-R-O-B-L-E-M
You gotta let him go and let him know this is the end
You've been kissed, dissed, listed as a dumb one
I hope he likes sad songs, he's gonna hum one
He's been a dum dum and that's the way it is forever
There comes a time, when you're at the end of your tether
And you know, I think you went far beyond that
So it was bound to backtrack
And smack you with an irksome vengeance as it attacks you
Makin sure you get the full entire view
Of who's to blame at the end of the game
Things will never be the same
And it's a cryin' shame

It's a shame
The way you mess around with my heart
It's a shame
The way you hurt me
It's a shame
The way you mess around with my heart
It's a shame
The way you hurt me

It's a shame
The way you mess around with my heart
It's a shame
The way you hurt me
It's a shame
The way you mess around with my heart
It's a shame
The way you hurt me

It's a shame
The way you mess around with my heart
It's a shame
The way you hurt me
It's a shame
The way you mess around with my heart
It's a shame
The way you hurt me

Rod Stewart - Da Ya Think I'm Sexy (1978)



Rod Stewart
"Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?"
Album: Blondes Have More Fun (1978 Warner Bros)

LYRICS:

Sugar, sugar

She sits alone waiting for suggestions
He's so nervous, avoiding all the questions
His lips are dry, her heart is gently pounding
Don't you just know exactly what they're thinking

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy
Come on, sugar, let me know
If you really need me, just reach out and touch me
Come on, honey, tell me so, tell me so, baby

He's acting shy, looking for an answer
Come on honey, let's spend the night together
Now hold on a minute before we go much further
Give me a dime so I can phone my mother

They catch a cab to his high rise apartment
At last he can tell her exactly what his heart meant

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy
Come on honey, tell me so
If you really need me, just reach out and touch me
Come on sugar, let me know

His heart's beating like a drum
'Cause at last he's got this girl home
Relax baby, now we are alone

They wake at dawn 'cause all the birds are singin'
Two total strangers but that ain't what they're thinkin'
Outside it's cold, misty and it's rainin'
They got each other, neither one's complainin'

He say's, "I sorry but I'm out of milk and coffee
Never mind sugar we can watch the early movie"

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy
Come on sugar, let me know
If you really need me, just reach out and touch me
Come on honey, tell me so

Sugar

If you really need me, just reach out and touch me
Come on, sugar, let me know
If you really, really, really, really need me
Just let me know, just reach out and touch me

If you really want me, just reach out and touch me
Come on, sugar, let me know
If you really need me, just reach out and touch me
Come on, sugar, let me know

If you, if you, if you really need me, just come on and tell me so
Just reach out and tell me so

Counting Crows - Accidentally in Love (2004)



Counting Crows
"Accidentally in Love"
Album: Shrek 2 OST (2004 Geffen)

LYRICS:

So she said what's the problem baby
What's the problem I don't know
Well maybe I'm in love (love)
Think about it every time
I think about it
Can't stop thinking 'bout it

How much longer will it take to cure this
Just to cure it cause I can't ignore it if it's love (love)
Makes me wanna turn around and face me but I don't know nothing 'bout love

Come on, come on
Turn a little faster
Come on, come on
The world will follow after
Come on, come on
Cause everybody's after love

So I said I'm a snowball running
Running down into the spring that's coming all this love
Melting under blue skies
Belting out sunlight
Shimmering love

Well baby I surrender
To the strawberry ice cream
Never ever end of all this love
Well I didn't mean to do it
But there's no escaping your love

These lines of lightning
Mean we're never alone,
Never alone, no, no

Come on, Come on
Move a little closer
Come on, Come on
I want to hear you whisper
Come on, Come on
Settle down inside my love

Come on, come on
Jump a little higher
Come on, come on
If you feel a little lighter
Come on, come on
We were once
Upon a time in love

We're accidentally in love
Accidentally in love [x7]

Accidentally

I'm In Love, I'm in Love,
I'm in Love, I'm in Love,
I'm in Love, I'm in Love,
Accidentally [x2]

Come on, come on
Spin a little tighter
Come on, come on
And the world's a little brighter
Come on, come on
Just get yourself inside her

Love ...I'm in love

Lighthouse Family
(I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be) Free / One
Album: Whatever Gets You Through the Day (2001 Wildcard/Polydor)

LYRICS:

I wish I knew how it would feel to be free
I wish I could break all the chains holding me
I wish I could say all the things that I should say
Say 'em loud say 'em clear
For the whole wide world to hear

I wish I could share
All the love that's in my heart
Remove all the bars that keep us apart
And I wish you could know how it is to be me
Then you'd see and agree that every man should be free

I wish I could be like a bird in the sky
How sweet it would be if I found I could fly
Well I'd soar to the sun and look down at the sea
And I'd sing cos I know how it feels to be free

I wish I knew how it would feel to be free
I wish I could break all the chains holding me
And I wish I could say all the things that I wanna say
Say 'em loud say 'em clear
For the whole wide world to hear
Say 'em loud say 'em clear
For the whole wide world to hear
Say 'em loud say 'em clear
For the whole wide world to hear

One love one blood
One life you've got to do what you should
One life with each other
Sisters, brothers

One love but we're not the same
We got to carry each other Carry each other
One One One One One...

I knew how it would feel to be free
I knew how it would feel to be free

"Josie"
Album: Aja (1977 ABC Records)

LYRICS:

We're gonna break out the hats and hooters
When Josie comes home
We're gonna rev up the motor scooters
When Josie comes home to stay
We're gonna park in the street
Sleep on the beach and make it
Throw down the jam till the girls say when
Lay down the law and break it
When Josie comes home

When Josie comes home
So good
She's the pride of the neighborhood
She's the raw flame
The live wire
She prays like a Roman
With her eyes on fire

Jo would you love to scrapple
She'll never say no
Shine up the battle apple
We'll shake 'em all down tonight
We're gonna mix in the street
Strike at the stroke of midnight
Dance on the bones till the girls say when
Pick up what's left by daylight
When Josie comes home

When Josie comes home
So bad
She's the best friend we ever had
She's the raw flame
The live wire
She prays like a Roman
With her eyes on fire

When Josie comes home
So good
She's the pride of the neighborhood
She's the raw flame
The live wire
She prays like a Roman
With her eyes on fire

Album: I Ain't Movin' (1994 Sony)

SINGLE:




LYRICS:

Listen as your day unfolds
Challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky
Lovers they may cause your tears
Go ahead release your fears
Stand up and be counted don't be 'shamed to cry

You gotta be, you gotta be bad
You gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together
All I know, all I know love will save the day

Herald what your mother said
Read the books your father read
Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time
Some may have more cash than you
Others take a different view
My, oh, my
he-eh-y

You gotta be bad
You gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together
All I know, all I know love will save the day

Time asks no questions it goes on without you
Leaving you behind if you can't stand the pace
The world keeps on spinning can't stop it if you tried to
The best part is danger staring you in the face


Remember, listen as your day unfolds
Challenge what the future holds
Try to keep your head up to the sky
Lovers they may cause your tears
Go ahead release your fears
My, oh, my
He-ey-y

You gotta be bad
You gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together
All I know, all I know love will save the day

You gotta be bad
You gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together
All I know, all I know love will save the day

Got to be bold, Got to be bad
Got to be wise, no never sad
Got to be hard, not too too hard
All I know is love will save the day

You gotta be bad
You gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together
Oooh, yeah yeah yeah

Dee D. Jackson - Automatic Lover (1978)



Dee D. Jackson
"Automatic Lover" (1978 Jupiter Records)

SINGLE:



LYRICS:

Love in space and time
There's no more feeling
Automatic lover
Cold and unappealing
Longing to be touched
Loging for a kiss
Whisper words of love
Tell me that you miss

See me, feel me, hear me
Love me, touch me
See me, feel me, hear me
Love me, touch me
I can see you
See me, feel me, hear me
Love me, touch me
See me, feel me, hear me
Love me, touch me
I can see you

Nothing to caress not a hand to hold
I don't need the touch

Cause his body's cold
He's programmed to receive
Automatic satisfaction
After love is done
Where's the true reaction

See me, feel me, hear me
Love me, touch me
I can hold you
See me, feel me, hear me
Love me, touch me
I can feel you
See me, feel me, hear me
Love me, touch me
I just want to make love
See me, feel me, hear me
Love me, touch me
Oh I need you
See me, feel me, hear me,
Love me, touch me
Your body's cold
There's not a hand to hold

To find the essence from within
Wanna be the captain of the Enterprise
Wanna be the king of the Zulus
Let's meet and have a baby now!
Wanna be the daughter of Dracula
Wanna be the son of Frankenstein
Let's meet and have a baby now!
Wanna be mother-father
Wanna be daughter-son
Wanna be captain
Wanna be ruler-king and empress

"Wishing on a Star"
Album: Rose Royce II In Full Bloom (1977 Whitfield /Warner Bros)

ALBUM:



LYRICS:

Wishing on a Star by Rose Royce
I'm wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I'm wishing on a dream
To follow what it means

I'm wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I'm wishing on a dream
To follow what it means

And I wish on all the rainbows that I see
I wish on all the people who really dream
And I'm wishing on tomorrow, praying it'll comes
And I'm wishing on all the lovin' we've ever done

I never thought I'd see
A time when you would be
So far away from home
So far away from me

Just think of all the moments that we'd spent
I just can't let you go, for me you were meant
And I didn't mean to hurt you, but I know
That in the game of love you reap what you sow

I feel it's time we should make up, baby
I feel it's time for us to get back together
And make the best of things, oh, baby
When we're together, whether or never

I feel it's time we should make up, baby
I feel it's time for us to get back together
And make the best of things, oh, baby
When we're together, whether or never

I'm wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I'm wishing on a dream
To follow what it means

And I wish on all the rainbows that I see
I wish on all the people we've ever been
And I'm hopin' on all the days to come and days to go
And I'm hopin' on days of lovin' you so

I'm wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I'm wishing on a star
Oh;oh;oh;
And I wish on all the rainbows that I see

I'm wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I'm wishing on a star
And I wish on all the rainbows that I see

I'm wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I'm wishing on a star
oh, oh, ah, ah

I'm wishing on a star, oh,oh
To follow where you are
I'm wishing on a star, baby
To follow wherever you might be

Wishing in a star, oh, oh
To follow where you are, oh, oh, ah, ah

Donald Fagen - Tomorrow's Girls (1993)



Donald Fagen
"Tomorrow's Girls"
Album: Kamakiriad (1993 Reprise)

ALBUM:




 LYRICS:

Our town is just like any other
Good citizens at work and play
Normal folks doin' business in the normal way
This morning was like any other
Mommies kissing daddies goodbye
Then the milkman screamed
And pointed up at the sky
[Chorus:]
From Sheilus to the reefs of Kizmar
From Stargate and the Outer Worlds
They're speeding towards our sun
They're on a party run
Here come Tomorrow's Girls
Tomorrow's Girls
You see them on the grass at lunch hour
Soaking up the vertical rays
In their summer dresses
A little smile can really make your day
Their kisses feel like real kisses
And when they cry they cry real tears
But what's left in your arms
When the static clears
[Chorus:]
They're landing on the Jersey beaches
Their engines make the white sand swirl
The heat is so intense
Earth men have no defense
Against Tomorrow's Girls
In the cool of the evening
In the last light of the triple sun
I wait by the go-tree
When the day's busy work is done
Soon the warm night breezes
Start rolling in off the sea
Yes, at lantern time
That's when you come to me
Come to me
Our home is just like any other
We're grillin' burgers on the back lawn
Some time goes by
We fall asleep with the TV on
I dream about a laughing angel
Then the laugh becomes a furious whine
Look out fellas
It's shredding time
[Chorus:]
They're mixing with the population
A virus wearing pumps and pearls
Lord help the lonely guys
Hooked by those hungry eyes
Here come Tomorrow's Girls
Tomorrow's Girls
[Chorus:]
From Sheilus to the reefs of Kizmar
From Stargate and the Outer Worlds
They're speeding towards our sun
They're on a party run
Here come Tomorrow's Girls
Tomorrow's Girls

she's driving away
with the dim lights on
and she's making a play

she never waits too long
she's winding them down
on her clock machine
and she won't give up
'cause she's seventeen
she's a frozen fire
she's my one desire
and i don't want to hold her down
don't want to break her crown
when she says, let's go
i like the nightlife baby
she says, let's go
she's laughing inside
'cause they can't refuse
she's so beautiful now
she doesn't wear her shoes
she doesn't like to choose
she's got wonderful eyes
and a risque mouth
and when i ask her before
she said she's holding out
she's a frozen fire
she's my one desire

You know I love my baby
My baby loves me
My day, it gets so heavy

Nana likes brandy, especially peach
She keeps it by the radio
And listens to the Reverend preach
It's 10:07 and time to get some ghetto heaven

Ghetto heaven

Ghetto heaven
She needs a little ghetto heaven

Baby, baby, baby
All I need in this world is you
And when you're gone
Baby, baby, baby
Your touch, your kiss
Always gets me through, by

Sister needs her sugar
To get her through the day
She doesn't have the money
But always got a way to pay
It's 2:07, it's time to sell some ghetto heaven

Ghetto heaven, ghetto heaven
It's time to sell some ghetto heaven
Ghetto heaven
My baby needs some ghetto heaven

Ghetto heaven
I need a little ghetto heaven
Ghetto heaven

Ghetto heaven
I need a little ghetto heaven

LYRICS:


Yeah, yeah
Have you heard the news today?
People right across the world,
Are pledging they will play the game,
Victims of a modern world,
Circumstance has brought us here,
Armageddon's come too near,
Too, too near, now
Foresight is the only key
To save our children's destiny,
The consequences are so grave
So, so grave, now
The hypocrites we are their slaves.
So my friends to stop the end
On each other we depend,
Oh we depend.
Mountain high and river deep,
Stop it going on,
We gotta wake this world up from its sleep.
Oh people,
Stop it going on,
Yeah, yeah
Have you heard the news today?
Money's on the menu in my favourite restaurant,
Now don't talk about quantity,
There's no fish let in the sea.
Greedy men been killing all the life there ever was,
And you'd better play it natures way,
Or she will take it all away,
Don't try and tell me you know more than her about right from wrong,
Now you've upset the balance, man,
Done the only thing you can,
Now my life is in your hands,
Moutain high and river deep.
Oh yeah
Stop it going on,
We gotta wake this world up from its sleep.
Oh people,
Stop it going on,
Moutain high and river deep.
Oh yeah
Stop it going on,
We gotta wake this world up from its sleep.
Oh people,
Stop it going on,
Greedy men will fade away,
When we stop it going on,
I know it's got to be that way,
Oh people,
Stop it going on,
I'm asking, Oh
When you gonna learn
To stop it going on?
When you gonna learn
To stop it going on?
When you gonna learn
To stop it going on?

Level 42 - Something About You (1985)



Level 42
"Something About You"
Album: World Machine (1985 Polydor)

SINGLE:



LYRICS:


Drawn into the stream
Of undefined illusion
Those diamond dreams
They can't disguise the truth
That there is something about you, baby, so right
I wouldn't be without you, baby, tonight

If ever our love was concealed
No one can say that we didn't feel
A million things and a perfect dream of life
Gone, fragile but free
We remain tender together
If not so in love
It's not so wrong
We're only human after all

These changing years
They add to your confusion
Oh and you need to hear
The time that told the truth

Because there's something about you, baby, so right
I couldn't live without you, baby, tonight

And that there's something about you
Yeah
And I couldn't live without you tonight

Flash & The Pan - Hey St Peter (1977)



Flash & The Pan
"Hey St.Peter"
Album: Flash & The Pan (1979 Ensign/CBS)

SINGLE:





LYRICS:

The morning was cold and lonely
City lights old and grey
The sun arose trying to smile
Gave it all away
The honky-tonk called a stranger
The stranger couldn't pay the bill
Made a stand, raised his hand
Sang a song, no time to kill

I said, Hey, hey, hey, St. Peter
I've got a tale to tell
I've just been down in New York town
It really feels like hell
It really feels like hell

Billy was out of fashion
Manhattan was years ago
Yesterday he wasted time
Money was kind of slow

Billy had friends of glory
Billy was a friend of fame
Took a chance, raised his hand
Sang a song, now he's back in the game

Hey, St. Peter
Before you ring your bell
Just been down in New York town
Done my time in hell
Done my time in hell

I said, Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, St. Peter
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, St. Peter
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, St. Peter
It really feels like hell
It really feels like hell
It really feels like hell

Arrested Development - People Everyday (1992)



Arrested Development
"People Everyday"
Album: 3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days in the Life of...(1992 Cooltempo/EMI)

SINGLE:



LYRICS:


See I was resting at the park minding my own
Business, as I kick up the treble tone
On my radio tape player box, right
Just loud enough so folks could hear it's hype, see ?
Outta nowhere comes the woman I'm dating
Investigation maybe she was demonstrating
But nevertheless I was pleased
My day was going great and my soul was at ease

Until a group of brothers started bugging out
Drinking the 40 oz, going the nigga route
Disrespecting my black queen
Holding their crotches and being obscene
At first I ignored them 'cause see I know their type
They got drunk and got guns and they wanna fight
And they see a young couple having a time that's good
And their egos wanna test a brother's manhood

So they came to test Speech 'cause of my hair-do
And the loud bright colors that I wear
I was a target cause I'm a fashion misfit
And the outfit that I'm wearing brothers dissing it
Well I stay calm and pray the niggaz leave me be
But they're squeezing parts of my date's anatomy
Why, Lord, do brothers have to drill me ?
'Cause if I start to hit this man they'll have to kill me

See I am everyday people
See I am everyday people

I told the niggaz please let us pass, friend
I said please cause I don't like killing Africans
But he wouldn't stop and I ain't Ice Cube
But I had to take the brother out for being rude
And like I said before I was mad by then
It took three or four cops to pull me off of him
But that's the story y'all of a black man
Acting like a nigga and get stomped by an African

You see I am everyday people
You see I am everyday people

The moral of the story is
You better look very hard on who you step into
As you might get killed or shot and it's not worth
Africans need to be loving each other and you know

It's time we should talk about it

I see the likeness in his smile
and the way he stands

Elton John - Your Song (1970) Live



Elton John
"Your Song"
Album: Elton John (1970 UNI/MCA)

SINGLE:



LYRICS:


It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money but if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

SINGLE:


LYRICS:


Well I never kept a dollar past sunset,
It always burned a hole in my pants.
Never made a school mama happy,
Never blew a second chance.
I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Always took candy from strangers,
Didn't wanna get me no trade.
Never want to be like papa,
Working for the boss ev'ry night and day.
I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love, baby won't ya keep me happy.
Baby, won't ya keep me happy.
Baby, please keep me
I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Never got a flash out of cocktails,
When I got some flesh off the bone.
Never got a lift out of Lear jets,
When I can fly way back home.
I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

Steve Winwood - Valerie (1982)



Steve Winwood
"Valerie"
Album: Talking Back to The Night (1982 Island)

SINGLE:




LYRICS:


So wild, standing there, with her hands in her hair
I can't help remember just where she touched me
There's still no face here in her place
So cool, she was like jazz on a summer's day
Music, high and sweet, then she just blew away
Now she can't be that warm with the wind in her arms

Valerie, call on me-call on me, Valerie
Come and see me-I'm the same boy I used to be

Love songs fill the night, but they don't tell it all
Not how lovers cry out just like they're dying
Her cries hang there in time somewhere
Someday, some good wind may blow her back to me
Some night I may hear her like she used to be
No it can't be that warm with the wind in her arms

So cool, she was like jazz on a summer's day
Music, high and sweet, then she just blew away
Don't tell me you're warm with the wind in your arms

The Spinners - The Rubberband Man (1976) Bobby Smith RIP (1936-2013)



The Spinners
"The Rubberband Man"
Album: Happiness is Being With The Spinners (1976 Atlantic)

SINGLE:



LYRICS:


Hand me down my walkin’ cane
Hand me down my hat
Hurry now and don’t be late
'Cause we ain’t got time to chat

You and me we’re goin’ out
To catch the latest sounds
Guaranteed to blow your mind
So high you won’t come down

Hey, y’all prepare yourself
For the Rubberband man
You never heard a sound
Like the rubberband man
You’re bound to lose control
When the Rubberband starts to jam

Oh, Lord, this dude is outta sight
Everything he does
seems to come out right

Once I went to hear them play
At a club outside of town
I was so surprised, I was hypnotized
By the sound this cat’s puttin’ down

When I saw this short fat guy
Stretch a band between his toes
Hey, I laughed so hard ‘cause the man got down
When he finally reached his goal

Hey, y’all prepare yourself
For the Rubberband man
You never heard a sound
Like the rubberband man
You’re bound to lose control
When the Rubberband starts to jam

Got that rubberband
Up on his toes
And then he wriggled it up
All around his nose

(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Guaranteed to blow your mind
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Playin’ all that music, yet keepin’ time
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Where in the world did he learn that, oh, Lord
(Doo doo doo doo doo)
Lord, help him get away

Hey, y’all prepare yourself
For the Rubberband man
You never heard a sound
Like the rubberband man
You’re bound to lose control
When the Rubberband starts to jam

Doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo
Rubberband man, Rubberband man
How much of this stuff do he think we can stand
So much rhythm, grace and debonair from one man, Lord
And then he had nerve to wiggle his left toe
To his knee, got the feelin’ in his head, y’all
Ah, come on, baby

Hey, y’all prepare yourself
For the Rubberband man
You never heard a sound
Like the rubberband man
You’re bound to lose control
When the Rubberband starts to jam

Rubberband man starts to jam
Movin’ up and down across the land
Got people all in his ways
Everything about him seems out of place

Just a movin’, just a movin’, just a move-move-movin’
Just a Rubberband, Rubberband man
Just a movin’, just a movin’, just a move-move-movin’
Just a Rubberband, Rubberband man

Get down
Oh, get down lover
Uh-huh

Luther Vandross & Dionne Warwick - How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye (1983)



Luther Vandross
"How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye" (W/Dionne Warwick)
Album: Busy Body (1983 Epic)

ALBUM:



LYRICS:


Here we are so close to the end now
Still holding on we try and pretend now
Clinging to love we both know is dying
We've tried and tried to find us a way out
But darling our dreams have now all been played out
Still we go on hopelessly trying

Chorus:
But how many times can we say goodbye
Hos many times can we see love die
How many times can we give it one more try
Before we really say goodbye

We're so in love but wrong for each other
Each hurt that heals brings on another
Both of us used and both of us using
Darling it's time that we stop pretending
There's just no way to rewrite our ending
We're caught in this game
And we know we're both losing

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
How many times can we break up and make up
Both of our hearts refusing to wake up
Just can't go on and on living a lie
Though I'll always love you

Repeat Chorus and Fade

Harry Nilsson - As Time Goes By (1973) Live



Harry Nilsson
"As Time Goes By" (1931 Herman Hupfeld)
Album: A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night (1973 RCA)


ALBUM:
:

LYRICS:


You must remember this
A kiss is still a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply as time goes by
And when two lovers woo
They still say "I love you"
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings, as time goes by
Moonlight and love songs never out of date
Hearts full of passion, jealousy, and hate
Woman needs man, and man must have his mate
That no one can deny
It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers as time goes by

Earth Wind and Fire
"That's the Way of the World"
Album: That's the Way of The World (1975 Columbia)

SINGLE:



LYRICS:


Hearts of fire creates love desire
Take you high and higher to the world you belong
Hearts of fire creates love desire
High and higher to your place on the throne

We've come together on this special day
To sing our message loud and clear
Looking back we've touched on sorrowful days
Future pass, they disappear

You will find peace of mind
If you look way down in your heart and soul
Don't hesitate 'cause the world seems cold
Stay young at heart 'cause you're never (never, never, ..) old at heart

That's the way of the world
Plant your flower and you grow a pearl
A child is born with a heart of gold
The way of the world makes his heart grow cold

The Temptations
"Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me)"
Album: Sky's The Limit (1971 Tamla Motown/Gordy)

SINGLE:


LYRICS:


Each day through my window I watch her as she passes by.
I say to myself, you're such a lucky guy.
To have a girl like her is truly a dream come true.
Out of all the fellas in the world, she belongs to me.

But it was just my 'magination, running away with me.
It was just my 'magination, running away with me.

(Soon) Soon we'll be married and raise a family. (Oh, yeah)
A cozy little home out in the country with two children, maybe three.
I tell you, I can visualize it all. This couldn't be a dream, for too real it all seems.

But it was just my 'magination, once again.
Running away with me.
Tell you it was just my 'magination,
Running away with me.

[Paul:] Every night on my knees I pray.

Dear Lord, hear my plea.
Don't ever let another take her love from me.
Or I will surely die. Hmm

(Her love is) heavenly.
When her arms enfold me.
I hear a tender rhapsody.
But in reality, she doesn't even know me.

Just my 'magination, once again.
Running away with me.
Oh, tell you it was just my 'magination,
Running away with me.

I never met her but I can't forget her.
Just my 'magination,
Ooo yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Running away with me.

Ooo, just my 'magination running away with me.
She's in my mind and hard to find.
Just my 'magination...

Luther Vandross - Stop To Love (1986)



Luther Vandross
"Stop to Love" (1986 Epic)


SINGLE:



LYRICS:


Lately love keeps keeping up at night
Tossing and turning, my love
Wanna kiss you, wanna hold you real tight
Ooo but I wonder love whether you know or not
You just hurry away, leaving me laying there in shock

I just wanna be the one that you wanna see
I just wanna have you near me
But you fly away almost everyday
You work a lot but you never stop to love

[Chorus:]
Stop, I love you so stop
Come home from the road
Gotta stop to love
And let's celebrate, celebrate the love we got, stop
Say you're coming home

You say my love has always been on your mind
But how can I ever love you, when you keep working overtime?
Too many empty nights, can make almost any guy roam
To look for the love he don't get whenever he's at home alone.

Awaiting the day that you're coming to stay
I hate to see you go away, but you couldn't rest
Had to do your best to reach the top
But you did not stop to love

[Chorus]

And one day you'll discover I'm the one who love ya
Gotta stop to love
No one loves you better
Can't you stay forever?
Stop to love
I can hardly stand the loneliness
Come on home, that's what it's all about
You really turn me out

[Chorus]
