Elvin Bishop – Fooled around and fell in love.

That time of night again, when I am playing the classics, and this one is perfect for the evening.  Elvin Bishop’s “Fooled around and fell in love”.  Featured on the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack, this one is so easy listening and relaxing.  The perfect song to chill out to.  Enjoy  ❤

I must have been through about a million girls
I’d love ’em and I’d leave them alone
I didn’t care how much they cried, no sir
Their tears left me cold as a stone

But then I fooled around and fell in love
I fooled around and fell in love
I fooled around and fell in love
I fooled around and fell in love

It used to be when I’d see a girl that I liked
I’d get out my book and write down her name
But when the grass got a little greener on the other side
I’d just tear out that page

But then I fooled around and fell in love
I fooled around and fell in love, since I met you baby
I fooled around and fell in love
I fooled around and fell in love, yes I did

But I’ve been strong this time baby
And guess what I’m in love, I’m in love
Lord have mercy

Free, on my own, that’s the way it used to be
But since I met you baby, love’s got a hold on me

Fooled around and fell in love
I fooled around and fell in love
I fooled around and fell in love
I fooled around and fell in love, yes I did

I fooled around and fell in love
I fooled around and fell in love, yes I did
I fooled around, fooled around, fooled around and fell in love

Crowded House – Don’t dream it’s over. (Extended version)

A bit of an Australian classic.  This is the extended version of their hit, “Don’t Dream it’s over”.  At the time a new and exciting way to showcase their talent through the visual medium of the music video.  Picked up by MTV, they went on to win a Grammy, and were adored by the Australian public.  The lyrics spoke a great deal of the generation that was the 80’s.

“Don’t Dream It’s Over”

There is freedom within
there is freedom without
Try to catch a deluge in a paper cup
There’s a battle ahead
many battles are lost
But you’ll never see the end of the road
While you’re traveling with me

[CHORUS]
Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Now I’m towing my car
there’s a hole in the roof
my possessions are causing me suspicion but there’s no proof
in the paper today
tales of war and of waste
but you turn right over to the T.V. page

[CHORUS]
Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Now I’m walking again
to the beat of a drum
And I’m counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead
barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief

Hey now, Hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, Hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
You know they won’t win

Don’t let them win
Hey now, Hey now

Hey now, Hey now

Hey now, Hey now
Don’t let them win

They come, They come
Don’t let them win

Hey now, Hey now (yeah)

Hey now, Hey now
