Song of the Day: Heart and Soul by Huey Lewis and the News

Heart And Soul

Two o’clock this morning (morning)
If she should come a-calling Calling)
I couldn’t dream of turning her away

And if it got hot and hectic (hectic)
I know she’d be electric (electric)
I’d let her take her chances with me
You see, she gets what she wants

‘Cause she’s heart and soul
She’s hot and cold
She’s got it all, hot loving every night
Woah
Woaaah

Well, can’t you see her standing there (standing there)
See how she looks, see how she cares (how she cares)
I let her steal the night away from me

Nine o’clock this morning (this morning)
She left without a warning (warning)
I let her take advantage of me
You see, she got what she wanted

‘Cause she’s heart and soul
She’s hot and cold
She’s got it all, hot loving every night
Woah
Woaaah

(Heart and soul)
Yeah she’s heart and soul
She’s hot and cold
She’s got it all
She’s heart and soul

She’s got loving every night
Woah
Woaaah
She’s got it all
She’s heart and soul

She’s heart and soul
She’s heart and soul
She’s heart and soul
She’s heart and soul
She’s heart and soul
[fade out]

Song of the Day: Somebody Save Me by Cinderella

Save Me

When I was a young boy
They said you’re only gettin’ older
But how was I to know then
That they’d be cryin’ on my shoulder
Put your money in a big house
Get yourself a pretty wife
She’ll collect your life insurance
When she connects you with a knife

Somebody get the doctor
I’m feelin’ pretty poor
Somebody get the stretcher
Before I hit the floor

Somebody save me
I lost my job, they kicked me out of my tree
Somebody save me
Save me

Everybody’s got opinions
But nobody’s got the answers
And that shit you ate for breakfast
Well it’ll only give you cancer
We’re runnin’ in a circle
Runnin’ to the morning light
And if ya ain’t quite workable
It’s been one hell of a night

Somebody get the doctor
I think I’m gonna crash
Never paid the bill
Because I ain’t got the cash

Somebody save me
I lost my job, they kicked me out of my tree
Somebody save me
Save me
Look out

Save me
I lost my job, they kicked me out of my tree
Somebody save me, oh
Save me

Somebody save me
I’m goin’ down for the last time, look out
Save me
Sa-a-a-a-a-a-ave me
Save me

Song of the Day: Lonely Is The Night by Billy Squier

bsquier

Lonely Is The Night

Lonely is the night, when you find yourself alone
Your demons come to light, and your mind is not your own
Lonely is the night, when there’s no one left to call
You feel the time is right–(say) the writin’s on the wall

It’s a high time to fight, when the walls are closin’ in
Call it what you like–its time you got to win
Lonely, lonely, lonely–your spirits sinkin’ down
You find you’re not the only, stranger in this town

Red lights, green lights, stop n’ go jive
Headlines, deadlines jammin’ your mind
You been stealin’ shots from the side
Let your feelins go for a ride

There’s danger out tonight..the man is on the prowl
Get the dynamite…the boys are set to howl
Lonely is the night when you hear the voices call
Are you ready for a fight–do you wanna take it all

Slowdown, showdown–waitin’ on line
Showtime, no time for changin’ your mind
Streets are ringin’, march to the sound
Let your secrets follow you down

Somebody’s watchin’ you baby–so much you can do
Nobody’s stoppin’ you baby, from makin’ it too
One glimpse’ll show you now baby, what the music can do
One kiss’ll show you now baby–it can happen to you

No more sleepin’, wastin’ our time
Midnight creepins first on our minds
No more lazin round the tv
You’ll go crazy–come out with me

Song of the Day: Don’t You Forget About Me by Simple Minds

Simple Minds

Don’t You (Forget About Me)

Hey, hey, hey ,hey
Ohhh…

Won’t you come see about me?
I’ll be alone, dancing you know it baby

Tell me your troubles and doubts
Giving me everything inside and out and
Love’s strange so real in the dark
Think of the tender things that we were working on

Slow change may pull us apart
When the light gets into your heart, baby

Don’t You Forget About Me
Don’t Don’t Don’t Don’t
Don’t You Forget About Me

Will you stand above me?
Look my way, never love me
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down

Will you recognise me?
Call my name or walk on by
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down, down

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ohhhh…..

Don’t you try to pretend
It’s my feeling we’ll win in the end
I won’t harm you or touch your defenses
Vanity and security

Don’t you forget about me
I’ll be alone, dancing you know it baby
Going to take you apart
I’ll put us back together at heart, baby

Don’t You Forget About Me
Don’t Don’t Don’t Don’t
Don’t You Forget About Me

As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
When you walk away

Or will you walk away?
Will you walk on by?
Come on – call my name
Will you call my name?

I say:
La la la…

Song of the Day: Hall of the Mountain King by Savatage

Hall Of The Mountain King

Far away
In a land caught between
Time and space
Where the books of life lay
We fear
This castle of stone
The mountain king roams
All alone in here
But he’s not the only one
Lost inside
Forever hidden from the sun

Madness reigns
In the Hall of the Mountain King
Oh yeah

His deep
Dark eyes
Keep watch on his kingdom
And the mysteries that sleeps safe inside
His hall
His towers of stone
Shall not be overthrown
For eternity
It is guarded by the king
Insanity and the power that it brings

Madness reigns
In the Hall of the Mountain King
Oh yeah
In the Hall of the Mountain King
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Come with me
Stay close by my side
As the darkness of night closes in
Don’t fear
In the thunder, it roars
When the Mountain King calls all his children home
To where I hid him we must run
Refuge(?) here but I was forever on the run

Madness reigns
(my friends)
In the Hall of the Mountain King
Oh yeah
In the Hall of the Mountain King
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Song of the Day: Self Control by Laura Branigan

Laura Branigan

Self Control

Oh, the night is my world
City light painted girl
In the day nothing matters
It’s the night time that flatters
In the night, no control
Through the wall something’s breaking
Wearing white as you’re walkin’
Down the street of my soul

You take my self, you take my self control
You got me livin’ only for the night
Before the morning comes, the story’s told
You take my self, you take my self control

Another night, another day goes by
I never stop myself to wonder why
You help me to forget to play my role
You take my self, you take my self control

I, I live among the creatures of the night
I haven’t got the will to try and fight
Against a new tomorrow, so I guess I’ll just believe it
That tomorrow never comes

A safe night, I’m living in the forest of my dream
I know the night is not as it would seem
I must believe in something, so I’ll make myself believe it
That this night will never go

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

Oh, the night is my world
City light painted girl
In the day nothing matters
It’s the night time that flatters

I, I live among the creatures of the night
I haven’t got the will to try and fight
Against a new tomorrow, so I guess I’ll just believe it
That tomorrow never knows

A safe night, I’m living in the forest of a dream
I know the night is not as it would seem
I must believe in something, so I’ll make myself believe it
That this night will never go

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
You take my self, you take my self control
You take my self, you take my self control
You take my self, you take my self control …

Song of the Day: No One Is To Blame by Howard Jones

HowardJones

No One Is To Blame

You can look at the menu but you just can’t eat
You can feel the cushions but you can’t have a seat
You can dip your foot in the pool but you can’t have a swim
You can feel the punishment but you can’t commit the sin

And you want her
and she wants you
We want everyone
And you want her
and she wants you
No one, no one, no one ever is to blame

You can build a mansion but you just can’t live in
You’re the fastest runner but you’re not allowed to win
Some break the rules
And live to count the cost
The insecurity is the thing that won’t get lost

And you want her
and she wants you
We want everyone
And you want her
and she wants you
No one, no one, no one ever is to blame

You can see the summit but you can’t reach it
It’s the last piece of the puzzle but you just can’t make it fit
Doctor says you’re cured but you still feel the pain
Aspirations in the clouds but your hopes go down the drain

And you want her
and she wants you
We want everyone
And you want her
and she wants you
No one, no one, no one ever is to blame
No one ever is to blame
No one ever is to blame

Song of the Day: Everytime You Go Away by Paul Young

Paul Young

Every Time You Go Away

Hey!, If we can solve any problem
Then why do we lose so many tears
Oh, and so you go again
When the leading man appears
Always the same thing
Can’t you see, we’ve got everything goin’ on and on and on

Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you

Go on and go free, yeah
Maybe you’re too close to see
I can feel your body move
It doesn’t mean that much to me
I can’t go on sayin’ the same thing
Just can’t you see, we’ve got everything do you even know
We know

Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you, oh
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you

I can’t go on sayin’ the same thing
‘Cause baby, can’t you see, we’ve got everything goin’ on
And On and on

Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you

Elton John3

Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me

I can’t light no more of your darkness
All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
I’m growing tired and time stands still before me
Frozen here on the ladder of my life

Too late to save myself from falling
I took a chance and changed your way of life
But you misread my meaning when I met you
Closed the door and left me blinded by the light

Don’t let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it’s always someone else I see
I’d just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me

I can’t find the right romantic line
But see me once and see the way I feel
Don’t discard me just because you think I mean you harm
But these cuts I have they need love to help them heal
