My Top Ten Song List – Number 6.

 

Time now for number six.  So…what was the song that brought the Nineties to a close in Australia and welcomed 2000?   Vanessa Amorosi’s “Absolutely Everybody”  Performed just shy of the steps of the Sydney Opera House, it was also sung at the closing of the 2000 Sydney Olympics and was something of an anthem for the generation.  It’s a song close to my heart and to this day it still gets me to my feet.   It’s pure positivity.

Vanessa Amorosi’s “Absolutely Everybody”.

 

“Absolutely Everybody”

(Absolutely Everybody, everybody, everybody)
(Absolutely Everybody, everybody, everybody)
(Absolutely Everybody, everybody, everybody)
(Absolutely Everybody, everybody)
Absolutely Everybody (everybody, everybody)
Absolutely Everybody, yeah (everybody, everybody)
Absolutely Everybody (everybody, everybody)
Absolutely Everybody, yeah (everybody)

Everybody needs a little loving
Everybody needs somebody thinking of them
Everybody needs a little respect
And whatever it takes, I’m gonna get it

Everybody needs a hand to hold
Someone to cling to when the nights are getting cold
I’m no different, I am just the same
A player in the game

Absolutely everybody, everybody, everybody
Absolutely everybody in the whole wide world
Absolutely everybody
Every boy and every girl
Absolutely everybody, yeah (everybody)

Everybody needs a human touch
I can’t live without it, it means too much to me
Everybody needs one true friend
Someone who’ll be there until the very end

And absolutely everybody breathes
And everybody, everybody bleeds
We’re no different, we’re all the same
Players in the game

Absolutely everybody, everybody, everybody
Absolutely everybody in the whole wide world
Everybody breathes
And everybody needs
Absolutely everybody, yeah

Absolutely everybody (everybody)
Absolutely everybody, yeah (woah)
Absolutely everybody, everybody, everybody (players in the)
Absolutely everybody, yeah (game)

Every boy and girl
Every woman and child
Every father and son
I said now everyone
Yes, now everyone

Everybody needs a human touch
Everybody, everybody needs love
I’m no different, I am just the same
A player in the game

Absolutely everybody, everybody, everybody
Absolutely everybody in the whole wide world
Everybody breathes
And everybody needs
Absolutely everybody, yeah

Absolutely everybody, everybody, everybody
Absolutely everybody in the whole wide world
Everybody breathes
And everybody needs
Absolutely everybody, yeah

Absolutely everybody (yeah)
Absolutely everybody
Absolutely everybody, everybody, everybody (woah)
Absolutely everybody, yeah (everybody)

Absolutely Everybody

  1. I was also unfamiliar with this song, but it certainly has an upbeat and positive message, very infectious. Disclosure: The 2000 Olympics occurred during a time when I didn’t even have a TV in the house, so it’s understandable why I missed this. I didn’t watch TV for over a decade, a period when I was trying to “find myself”. It seems absurd now, and it probably was, but at least you have another piece of trivia about a small-town boy from Oklahoma… 😉
