TUESDAY IS SONG STUCK IN YOUR HEAD DAY!

Recommended Posts

Can't get enough this song. Holland should have been one of the biggest stars ever. I realize he stopped because of stage fright but it still must have sucked to write that many number ones and have that voice and never completely cash in.

 

 

Songwriters: HOLLAND, EDWARD, JR./HOLLAND, BRIAN/DOZIER, LAMONT HERBERT
 
Take me in your arms
Hold me for a little while
Hey, baby
 
So I know you're leavin'
Leave me behind
I'm seein' you, darlin'
For the very last time
 
Show a little tenderness
Before you go
Please let me feel
Your embrace once more
 
Take me in your arms
Rock me, rock me
A little while
Take me in your arms
Rock me, rock me
A little while
 
We all must feel
Heartache sometimes
Right now, right now
I'm feelin' mine
 
I've tried my best to be strong
I'm not able
I'm like a helpless child
Left in a cradle
Let me know joy
Before I leave
Just once more, darlin'
Before you leave
 
Take me in your arms
Rock me, rock me
A little while
Take me in your arms
Rock me, rock me
A little while
 
I'm losin' you
And my happiness
My life is over
I must confess
 
I'll never, never see
Your smiling face no more
I'll never, never hear
Your knock on my door
 
Before you leave me
Leave me behind
Let me feel happy
Just one more time
 
Take me in your arms
Rock me, rock me
A little while
Oh, darling
Take me in your arms
Rock me, rock me
A little while
 
I said I wouldn't beg
I said I wouldn't plead
Here I am, baby
I'm beggin' you, please
Baby, please
Baby, please
 
Take me in your arms
Rock me, rock me a little while
Oh, darling
Rock me just a little while
 
Take me in your arms
Rock me, rock me a little while
Oh, darling
Rock me just a little while

A recent Facebook convo re: Gene Kelly's SINGIN' IN THE RAIN inspired me to locate this circa 1978 NYC post-punk obscurity. 

 

Ignore the blatant Knack-isms of the band, because I dare you not to have a goofy grin on your face by performance's end.

Shake It And Break It Lyrics
You can shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
Throw it out the window, catch it 'fore it roll
You can shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
...it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
Everybody have a jelly roll like mine, I lives in town
I, ain't got no brown, I, an' I want it now
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
You can snatch it, you can grab it, you can break it,
you can twist it, any way that I love to get it
I, had my right mind since I, I blowed this town
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
Jus' shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
. it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall
...it out the window, catch it 'fore it...
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
I ain't got nobody here but me and myself
I, stay blue all the time, aw, when the sun goes down
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
You can shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
... it out the window, catch it 'fore it fall
 
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall
...it out the window, catch...
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
You can snatch it, you can grab it,
you can break it, you can twist it,
any way that I love to get it
I, had my right mind, I, be worried sometime
'Bout a jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
Just shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
... it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall
...it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
I know I been to town, I, I walked around
I, start leavin' town, I, I fool around
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
Just shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
... it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall
...it out the window, catch it 'fore it...
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
Jus' shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
... it out the window, catch it 'fore it...
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it...

And when I wake up in the morning
To feel the daybreak on my face
There's a blood that's flowin' through the feeling
With a knife to open up the sky's vein
 
Some things will never change
They just stand there looking backwards
Half unconscious from the pain
It may seem rearranged
In the backwater swirling there is
Something that'll never change
 
And when I shoulda' been gone a long time
Laughs and says I find ways
Just when we're sheltered under paper
The rockets come at us sideways
 
Some things will never change
They just stand there looking backwards
Half unconscious from the pain
It may seem rearranged
In the backwater swirling there is
Something that'll never change
 
Hey, I'm blind
Good, fine
Roll the time
On whose dime?
 
And when I wake up in the morning
To feel the daybreak on my face
There's a blood that's flowin' through the ceiling
With a knife to open up the sky's vein
 
Some things will never change
They just stand there looking backwards
Half unconscious from the pain
It may seem rearranged
In the backwater swirling there is
Something that'll never change

One of the "dangers" of attending the Great Dickens Xmas Fair in San Francisco is that this little earworm will be performed.  Ladies and germs, "Daddy Wouldn't Buy Me a Bow-Wow."http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cOteOeUSRM

I got the bad news this morning
I think I'm gonna have to leave right away
Oh Lord, I think I'm gonna have to leave right away
 
You know I hope and I pray
I'll see my love one another day, yeah
 
The sad thing in my life
Lord, I got to leave now
Oh, the sad thing in my life
Lord, I got to leave right now
Oh, there's a strain in my heart
Just to know that my woman
Is gonna be goin' out, yes, she is
 
Please
Yeah
 
Lord, hold me, hold me over
Hold me over, hold me over
Honey, I'm gonna miss my baby
 
I don't wanna go
But the bad news is coming
Lord, please don't let me go, no
The news is comin' [incomprehensible]
Yeah, yeah
 
Listen
 
I gotta say, I gotta leave you
Baby

This song's been stuck in my head since HESITATION MARKS came out.  It got re-stuck seeing Trent and the Industrial Funk All-Stars in Brooklyn last month.  It got RE-re-stuck thanks to both last week's COVERT AFFAIRS season finale and a NIN-themed, grotesquely work-unsafe pinup shoot I did this past weekend.

 

Mr. Belew, if you please?

I'm all out of hope
One more bad dream
could bring a fall
When I'm far from home
Don't call me on the phone
To tell me you're alone
It's easy to deceive
It's easy to tease
But hard to get release
 
Les yeux sans visage
eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage 
eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage 
eyes without a face
Got no human grace 
your eyes without a face
 
I spend so much time
Believing all the lies
To keep the dream alive
Now it makes me sad
It makes me mad at truth
For loving what was you
 
Les yeux sans visage 
eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage 
eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage 
eyes without a face
Got no human grace 
your eyes without a face
 
When you hear the music 
you make a dip
Into someone else's pocket 
then make a slip
Steal a car and go to Las Vegas 
oh, gigolo pool
 
Hanging out by the state line,
Turning holy water into wine
Drinkin' it down, oh
I'm on a bus on a psychedelic trip
Reading murder books tryin' to stay hip
I'm thinkin' of you you're out there so
Say your prayers
Say your prayers
Say your prayers
 
Now I close my eyes
And I wonder why
I don't despise
Now all I can do
Is love what was once
So alive and new
But it's gone from your eyes
I'd better realise
 
Les yeux sans visage 
eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage 
eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage 
eyes without a face
Got no human grace 
your eyes without a face
Such a human waste 
your eyes without a face
 
And now it's getting worse

Goodnight my love

Remember me as you fall to sleep

Fill your pockets with the dust and the memories

That rises from the shoes on my feet

I won't be back here

Though we may meet again

 

I know it's dark outside

Don't be afraid

Every time I ever cried from fear

Was just a mistake that I made

Wash yourself in your tears

And build your church

On the strength of your faith

 

Please

Listen to me

Don't let go

Don't let this desperate moonlight leave me

With your empty pillow

Promise me the sun will rise again

 

I too am tired now

Embracing thoughts of tonight's dreamless sleep

My head is empty

My toes are warm

I am safe from harm

If I was with a woman she'd wonder what was happening

Little things would slowly go askew

If I was with a woman I'd make her quite unhappy

Specially when she did not want me to

 

If I was with a woman I'd make believe I loved her

When all the time I would not like her much

If I was with a woman she'd soon become unsettled

I'd show her but I would not let her touch

 

Look at them laughing

Look at them laughing

Look at them laughing

Laughing, laughing

 

If I was with a woman I'd never ask her questions

But if she did not want me to I would

If I was with a woman I'd offer my indifference

And make quite sure she never understood

 

If I was with a woman I'd threaten to unload her

Every time she asked me to explain

If I was with a woman she'd have to learn to cherish

The purity and depth of my disdain

 

Look at them laughing

Look at them laughing

Look at them laughing

Laughing, laughing

 

I've been with a woman, she took away my spirit

No woman's coming close to me again

I've been with a woman, she took away my spirit

No woman's coming close to me again

 

Look at them laughing

Look at them laughing

Look at them laughing

Laughing, laughing, laughing, laughing, laughing

Laughing, laughing, laughing, laughing, laughing...

Call me up, if I'm home
Dont say too much, I might be upset
Let us agree to differ
We're consumed by competition

 

Having fun is my reason for living
(Give me a break)
Having fun is my reason for living
(Give me a break)

 

Call me up, if I'm alone
I dont like to spend too much time on my own
I need to have diversion
Consume me with a new passion

 

Having fun is my reason for living
(Give me a break)
Having fun is my reason for living
(Give me a break)

 

We are all in competition
Better move fast, gobble up your dinner
Take a tip, get hip

It's not so bad in the promised land
It's not so bad in the promised land
It's not so bad in the promised land
How do I fill my days?
A force called 'Hard cash' moves my feet

We are all in competition
Its the one thing that is simple
We are all in competition
Its not so bad in the promised land

 

Having fun is my reason for living
(Give me a break)
Having fun is my reason for living
(Give me a break)

 

Children of the pleasure culture
Who must be grateful for what we've got
Happy smiles in sunny climes
So dont upset the ice-cream cart

 

Having fun is my reason for living
(Give me a break)
Having fun is my reason for living
(Give me a break)

Having fun is my reason for living
(Give me a break)
Having fun is my reason for living
(Give me a break)

There is no blues that can sound quite as heartfelt as mine

Lamented at the gorge of the river, I watched it weep its banks dry

I hum the sorriest tune on the bar at these dives

Send all the patrons running home to make up with their first wives

 

My prose as purple but not as pretty as Lucerne

For sweet nothings from the lips of a gargoyle, nobody ever yearned

Perpetually a philistine, but darling I am longing to learn

Been looked at like the rotten grape on the vine, while you and yours are drinking Sauternes.

 

(But the low) is, what I came for

(And to bask) in a darkness I do adore

 

I am the magpie's solo, the sorrow that makes you salute

Pounding the earth for the early worm, I'm a glutton but it's good for my glutes

I was solace to the sirens, the bait on the fisherman's rod

the hook took me far from my family, but closer to God

It's on again

it's off again

where did it begin

where does it end

I thought it was over

but it's still not the end

All we have is right now

We'll watch the clouds turn inside out

If the sun doesn't rise

That's fine I don't mind

It's OK I prefer sitting in the dark anyway

It's wintertime, it's low tide

Let's hang for a while

and watch the world die

On the last day we are alive

Will there be

Machines

Keep our

Insides moving

Will there be

Buttons to press

Wires to twist

Keep our lips wet

To keep us talking?

To keep our eyes lit?

 

Oh it's wrong

Treating the breath

Soothe our skin

Make us perfect

 

What thing moves?

What stands still?

What thing moves?

What stands still?

Everything can change on a new years day
Everything can change on a new years day
Everything can change on a new years day
And everything changed on a new years day, c'mon

War within a breath
It's land or death
War within a breath
It's land or death
War within a breath
It's land or death
War within a breath
It's land!

Heard this on the radio a few weeks ago on the way to a friend's house. Didn't have time to stick around and hear who it was and by the time I got around to googling the lyrics, I'd forgotten most of them. Thankfully the radio station has a thing on their website where you can submit the lyrics you remember along with the time of day the song came on and someone will research it for you.

 

 

My mind is filled with thoughts of you
I think about the days of two
I search the room but you're not there
Your perfume lingers everywhere
But it's

Only a memory
Of what our love was going to be
Only a memory
Broken bits of you and me
Only a memory
Only a memory

In a world of pain I have no peer
You fade away and disappear
And now I have to learn the game
Where no one wins or takes the blame
But it's

Only a memory
Of what our love was going to be
Only a memory
[- From: http://www.elyrics.net -]
Now that we are history
Only a memory
Only a memory

But it's
Only a memory
Of what our love was going to be
Only a memory
Broken bits of you and me
Only a memory
Only a memory

Why should it matter if I cry
I sit around and wonder why
Now I feel much too weak to live
And I've got nothing left to give
Now it's

Only a memory
Of what our love was going to be
Only a memory
Broken bits of you and me
Only a memory
Only a memory
Only a memory

The pilgrim can't sleep, the pilgrim's a spy
The pilgrim can't sleep 'cause his prayers won't fly
The dumb won't speak, the truth is lies
The dumb won't speak, make their tongues get fired

The cripple won't walk, the crooks all cry
The cripple won't walk, put the stilts on trial
The dead man talks, didn't say goodbye
The dead man talks and the phone is wired

Who can steal when everything is free?
Who am I when everything is me?

Who am I when everything is me?
Who am I when everything is me?

Betting on tilt, I make a deal
When I get up, I take a pill
Come on down and come on in
The little lambs jump and I could kill them still

Creationists creep, they walk in the street
Creationists creep and the citizens buy
All the shoppers asleep, they're in way too deep
All the shoppers asleep and the cameras lie

Who can lie when everything is true?
Who wants old when everything is new

 
Who am I when everything is me?
Who am I when everything is me?

Betting on tilt, I make a deal
When I get up, I take a pill
Come on down and come on in
The little lambs jump and I could kill them still

Who am I when everything is me?
Who am I when everything is me?
Who am I when everything is me?
The little lambs jump and I could kill them still
