My Daily Song: Dr. Alban

I nice upbeat song for the day after a holiday.  You don’t have to think, just groove.  Ah yes, the 90’s wouldn’t have been complete without the jams of Dr. Alban.  Too bad I tossed my dancing shoes.

Look Who’s Talking

Look who’s talking now
Look who’s talking now
Look who’s talking now
Look who’s talking now

Me know a pop star, we call him Mr X
He has a very, very complex attitude
He said some nasty things about I and I
He even said some nasty things about everyone
Me no like the way him chat, I say
Me no like the way him go
That’s why me said to him:
Look who is talking

Look who’s talking now
Look who’s talking now
Look who’s talking now
Look who’s talking now
Look who is talking
Look who is talking
Look who is talking
Look who is talking

Come to mor and he said that he’s the best
He is very critical and complaining all the time
Everyone is wrong, he’s the one that is right
This striking pop star would not even give up
He’s an opportunist with one hit song
That’s why me said to him:
Look who is talking

Look who’s talking now
Look who’s talking now
Look who’s talking now
Look who’s talking now
Look who is talking
Look who is talking
Look who is talking
Look who is talking

Look who’s talking now
Look who’s talking now
Look who’s talking now
Look who’s talking now
Look who is talking
Look who is talking
Look who is talking
Look who is talking

My Daily Song: Fire Meet Gasoline

You may remember that I love Sia.  I love the way she sings abut wanting to be close even though it might be destructive.  The power of love in full force.

Fire Meet Gasoline

It’s dangerous
To fall in love, but I
Wanna burn with you tonight
Hurt me
There’s two of us
We’re bristling with desire
The pleasure’s pain and fire
Burn me

So come on, I’ll take you on, take you on, I
Ache for love, ache for us, why
Don’t you come, don’t you come a little closer
So come on now, strike the match, strike the match now
We’re a perfect match, perfect somehow
We were meant for one another, come a little closer

Flame you came from me
Fire meet gasoline
Fire meet gasoline
I’m burning alive
I can barely breathe
When you’re here loving me
Fire meet gasoline
Fire meet gasoline

I got all I need
When you came after me
Fire meet gasoline
I’m burning alive
And I can barely breathe
When you’re here loving me
Fire meet gasoline
Burn with me tonight

And we will fly
Like smoke darknin’ the sky
I’m Eve, I wanna try
Take a bite

So come on now, strike the match, strike the match now
We’re a perfect match, perfect somehow
We were meant for one another, come a little closer

Flame you came from me
Fire meet gasoline
Fire meet gasoline
I’m burning alive
I can barely breathe
When you’re here loving me
Fire meet gasoline
Fire meet gasoline

I got all I need
When you came after me
Fire meet gasoline
I’m burning alive
And I can barely breathe
When you’re here loving me
Fire meet gasoline
Burn with me tonight

But it’s a bad bet, certain death
But I want what I want and I gotta get it
When the fire dies, darkened skies
Hot ash, dead match, only smoke is left

But it’s a bad bet, certain death
But I want what I want and I gotta get it
When the fire dies, darkened skies
Hot ash, dead match, only smoke is left

Flame you came from me
Fire meet gasoline
Fire meet gasoline
I’m burning alive
I can barely breathe
When you’re here loving me
Fire meet gasoline
Fire meet gasoline

I got all I need
When you came after me
Fire meet gasoline
I’m burning alive
And I can barely breathe,
When you’re here loving me
Fire meet gasoline
Burn with me tonight yeah

Burn with me tonight
Burn with me tonight
Burn with me tonight, eh eh

My Daily Song: Cutting Crew

Cutting Crew has this fabulous song about the angst of love.  I love it.

(I Just) Died In Your Arms

Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must have been something you said
I just died in your arms tonight

I keep looking for something I can´t get
Broken hearts lie all around me
And I don´t see an easy way to get out of this
Her diary it sits on the bedside table
The curtains are closed, the cats in the cradle
Who would´ve thought that a boy like me could come to this

Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must´ve been something you said
I just died in your arms tonight
Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must´ve been some kind of kiss
I should´ve walked away

Is there any just cause for feeling like this?
On the surface I´m a name on a list
I try to be discreet, but then blow it again
I´ve lost and found, it´s my final mistake
She´s loving by proxy, no give and all take
´Cos I´ve been thrilled to fantasy one too many times

Oh I, I just died in your arms…
It was a long hot night
She made it easy, she made it feel right
But now it´s over the moment has gone
I followed my hands not my head, I know I was wrong

Oh I, I just died in your arms…

My Daily Song: Creedence Clearwater Revival

Another of my favorite bands, Creedence Clearwater Revival.  I love this song because it reminds me of someone who got away.  I wrote a poem about her titled A Thousand Times Over 

I Put A Spell On You

I put a spell on you, because you’re mine
You better stop the thing that you’re doin’
I said, “Watch out, I ain’t lyin'”, yeah
I ain’t gonna take none of your, foolin’ around
I ain’t gonna take none of your, puttin’ me down
I put a spell on you because you’re mine, all right

I put a spell on you, because you’re mine
You better stop, the thing that you’re doin’
I said, “Watch out, I ain’t lyin'”, yeah
I ain’t gonna take none of your, foolin’ around
I ain’t gonna take none of your, puttin’ me down
I put a spell on you because you’re mine, all right and I took it down

My Daily Song: ELO

ELO is one of my all time favorite Rock Bands.  This is one of my favorite of theirs:

“Strange Magic”

You’re sailing softly through the sun
in a broken stone age dawn.
You fly so high.

I get a strange magic,
oh, what a strange magic,
oh, it’s a strange magic.
Got a strange magic,
got a strange magic.

You’re walking meadows in my mind,
making waves across my time,
oh no, oh no.

I get a strange magic,
oh, what a strange magic,
oh, it’s a strange magic.
Got a strange magic,
got a strange magic.

Oh, I’m never gonna be the same again,
now I’ve seen the way it’s got to end,
sweet dream, sweet dream.

Strange magic,
oh, what a strange magic,
oh, it’s a strange magic.
Got a strange magic,
got a strange magic.

It’s magic, it’s magic, it’s magic.

Strange magic,
oh, what a strange magic,
oh, it’s a strange magic.
Got a strange magic.

Strange magic STRANGE MAGIC
oh, what a strange magic STRANGE MAGIC
oh, it’s a strange magic.
Got a strange magic.

Strange magic STRANGE MAGIC
oh, what a strange magic STRANGE MAGIC
oh, it’s a strange magic.
Got a strange magic,
got a strange magic,
you know I got a strange magic,
yeah, I got a strange magic,
oo-o-o-oo, strange magic. (fade)
