Rod Stewart – You’re in My Heart

 

It’s Sunday morning here in Oz, so here is a wonderful song to wake up to…but also for all the lovers out there.  Rod Stewart’s You’re in my heart.  Enjoy  ~RB~

“You’re In My Heart (The Final Acclaim)”

I didn’t know what day it was
when you walked into the room
I said hello unnoticed
You said goodbye too soon

Breezing through the clientele
spinning yarns that were so lyrical
I really must confess right here
the attraction was purely physical

I took all those habits of yours
that in the beginning were hard to accept
Your fashion sense, Beardsly prints
I put down to experience

The big bosomed lady with the Dutch accent
who tried to change my point of view
Her ad lib lines were well rehearsed
but my heart cried out for you

Chorus:

You’re in my heart, you’re in my soul
You’ll be my breath should I grow old
You are my lover, you’re my best friend
You’re in my soul

My love for you is immeasurable
My respect for you immense
You’re ageless, timeless, lace and fineness
You’re beauty and elegance

You’re a rhapsody, a comedy
You’re a symphony and a play
You’re every love song ever written
But honey what do you see in me

You’re in my heart, you’re in my soul
You’ll be my breath should I grow old
You are my lover, you’re my best friend
You’re in my soul

You’re an essay in glamour
Please pardon the grammar
but you’re every schoolboy’s dream
You’re Celtic, United, but baby I’ve decided
You’re the best team I’ve ever seen

And there have been many affairs
Many times I’ve thought to leave
But I bite my lip and turn around
’cause you’re the warmest thing I’ve ever found

You’re in my heart, you’re in my soul
You’ll be my breath should I grow old
You are my lover, you’re my best friend
You’re in my soul

80’s Juke box – (1985) We Close our Eyes : Go West.

A new music trivia post series.  I am going to be posting up songs from the 80’s that may not have made it to number one, but certainly will take you back to the time of big hair, bigger shoulder pads, and of course the best music.

“We Close Our Eyes” is a song by British pop band Go West, composed by both members Peter Cox and Richard Drummie. Recognizable by its synthesizer hook, it was the first single from their début album Go West.

The single was promoted by a music video directed by Godley & Creme. This video included the band members performing the song in front of dancing wooden dolls.

In April 1985, the single was discussed by Molly Meldrum and Queen singer Freddie Mercury on the Australian music show Countdown. Mercury was impressed and predicted the band would be “very, very big”.

“We Close Our Eyes” spent fourteen weeks on the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number 5 in April 1985. In the United States, the single reached 41 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 5 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart.

Inside everyone hides one desire
Out side no one would know
Danger close to the edge of the knife
Safer not to let go

And while
We miss chances
You can almost hear
Time slipping away

We close our eyes, we never lose a game
Imagination never lets us take the blame
We close our eyes to see the final frame
We close our eyes to time slipping away

No show, Wednesday girl waits with the wine
She knows just what to say
While no one listen
You can almost hear time slipping away

We close our eyes we never lose a game
Imagination never lets us take the blame
We close our eyes to see the final frame
We close our eyes and we can talk to strangers

We are burning with the spark
And we can walk on water
We are tigers in the dark
We are burning, we close our eyes

Heroes never give in to the night
He knows how far he can run
And as he surrenders
You can almost hear time slipping away

We close our eyes, we never lose a game
Imagination never lets us take the blame
We close our eyes to see the final frame
We close our eyes

We close our eyes, we never lose a game
Imagination never lets us take the blame
We close our eyes to see the final frame
We close our eyes

We walk on water
We are burning
Talk to strangers

The Clash – Rock the Casbah

Released in 1982, this song was the Clash’s highest ranked song in the charts, from the Album – Combat Rock.  The theme however, while it is 33 years old, still stands true in the Middle East.    The clip was filmed in Austin,  Texas and while this might seem to be politically incorrect by today’s standards, it illustrated a powerful message.

The United States Airforce became an unwitting participant in the video. Two RF – 4C aircraft landing at Bergstrom Air force base (near Austin) from the east are featured in the portion of the video with the lyrics “the King called out his jetfighters…”

“Rock The Casbah”

Now the king told the boogie men
You have to let that raga drop
The oil down the desert way
Has been shakin’ to the top
The sheik he drove his Cadillac
He went a’ cruisnin’ down the ville
The muezzin was a’ standing
On the radiator grille

[Chorus]
The shareef don’t like it
Rockin’ the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
The shareef don’t like it
Rockin’ the Casbah
Rock the Casbah

By order of the prophet
We ban that boogie sound
Degenerate the faithful
With that crazy Casbah sound
But the Bedouin they brought out
The electric camel drum
The local guitar picker
Got his guitar picking thumb
As soon as the shareef
Had cleared the square
They began to wail

[Chorus]

Now over at the temple
Oh! They really pack ’em in
The in crowd say it’s cool
To dig this chanting thing
But as the wind changed direction
The temple band took five
The crowd caught a wiff
Of that crazy Casbah jive

[Chorus]

The king called up his jet fighters
He said you better earn your pay
Drop your bombs between the minarets
Down the Casbah way

As soon as the shareef was
Chauffeured outta there
The jet pilots tuned to
The cockpit radio blare

As soon as the shareef was
Outta their hair
The jet pilots wailed

[Chorus]

He thinks it’s not kosher
Fundamentally he can’t take it.
You know he really hates it.

The Cure – Hello Goodbye.

Last week I posted from the Art of McCartney, with Alice Cooper’s cover of Eleanor Rigby.  Today, I found this classic cover, but it features the Cure….with Paul’s son, James on keyboards.  Love to know what you guys think.  I quite enjoy this take on it.    ~RB~

The Angels – Am I ever going to see your face again?

Probably one of the most popular of all pub songs in the late 70s and early 80s, this track by the Angels,  “Am I ever going to see your face again?”   🙂   After Doc Neeson sang the main line “Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again” the crowd would scream back: No Way! Get F**ked! F**k Off! It got to the point where he would pause and point the mike to the audience for them to scream and go wild. –  Enjoy this live performance by the Angels, fronted by the late great Doc Neeson.

Went down to Santa Fe, where Renoir paints the walls,
Described you clearly, but the sky began to fall

Am I ever gonna see your face again?

Trams cars and taxis, like a wax-works on the move
Carrying young girls past me, but none of them are you

Am I ever gonna see your face again?

Without you near me I got no place to go
Wait at the bar, maybe you might show

Am I ever gonna see your face again?

I got to stop these tears that’s falling from my eye
Go walk out in the rain, so no one sees me cry

Am I ever gonna see your face again?

Can’t stop the memory that goes climbing through my brain
I get no answer so the question still remains

Am I ever gonna see your face again?

 

KC and the Sunshine Band – Please don’t go.

Its a week of classics, and love ballads from me.  This one is sure to bring back some memories.  KC and the Sunshine band’s “Please don’t go.”

I love you
Hey

Babe, I love you so
I want you to know
That I’m goin’ to miss your love
The minute you walk out that door

So please don’t go, don’t go
Don’t go away
Please don’t go, don’t go
I begging you to stay

If you leave, at least in my lifetime
I’ve had one dream come true
I was blessed to be loved
By someone as wonderful as you

So please don’t go, don’t go
Don’t go away
Please don’t go, don’t go
I begging you to stay

Hey, hey, hey
Yeah

Babe, I love you so
I, I want you to know
That I’m goin’ to miss your love
The minute you walk out that door

So please don’t go, don’t go
Don’t go away

Hey, hey, hey, I need your love
I’m down on my knees
Beggin’ please, please, please
Don’t go, don’t you hear me, baby
Don’t leave me now, oh, no, no, no, no
Please don’t go, I want you to know
That I, I, I, love you so

Don’t leave me, baby
Please don’t go

 

Pet Shop Boys – Always on my mind.

Always On My Mind was written for Elvis Presley by Mark James (Suspicious Minds) and it was recorded by Elvis in March 1972, but this cover of the song by the Pet Shop Boys has been a favorite version of mine.  Hope you enjoy this video montage.

“Always On My Mind”

Maybe I didn’t treat you quite as good as I should
Maybe I didn’t love you quite as often as I could
Little things I should’ve said and done, I never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn’t hold you all those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you, I’m so happy that you’re mine
If I made you feel second best, I’m so sorry, I was blind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn’t died
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied
Satisfied

Little things I should’ve said and done, I never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn’t died
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn’t treat you quite as good as I should
Maybe I didn’t love you quite as often as I could
Maybe I didn’t hold you all those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you, I’m so happy that you’re mine

(Maybe I didn’t love you…)
