Song of the Day: I Can Dream About You by Dan Hartman

Dan Hartman

I Can Dream About You

No more timing each tear
That falls from my eyes
I’m not hiding the remedy
To cure this old heart of mine

I can dream about you
If I can’t hold you tonight
I can dream about you
You know how to hold me just right

I can dream about you
If I can’t hold you tonight
I can dream about you
You know how to hold me just right

Moving sidewalks
I don’t see under my feet
Climbing up from down here below
Where the streets see me lonely for you

I can dream about you
If I can’t hold you tonight
I can dream about you
You know how to hold me just right

I can dream about you
I’m gonna press my lips against you
And hold you tight to me
I can dream about you
You know you got me spellbound
What else can it be

Moving sidewalks
I don’t see under my feet
Climbing up from the pain in my heart
‘Cause it’s you that I need

I can dream
Whoa, oh, I can dream
Yes, I can dream
Whoa, oh

I don’t understand it
I can’t keep my mind off loving you
(Not even for a minute)
Ooo, now baby, I’m caught up
In the magic I see in you
There’s one thing to do

I can dream about you
If I can’t hold you tonight
I can dream about you
You know how to hold me just right
Whoa, oh

I can dream about you
If I can’t hold you tonight
I can dream about you
Oh, I can dream
I can dream

I can dream about you
Oh, I can dream about you
I can dream about you
You know how to hold me just right

Song of the Day: Welcome Home (Sanitarium) by Metallica

Metallica

Welcome Home (Sanitarium)

Welcome to where time stands still
No one leaves and no one will
Moon is full, never seems to change
Just labeled mentally deranged
Dream the same thing every night
I see our freedom in my sight
No locked doors, No windows barred
No things to make my brain seem scarred

Sleep my friend and you will see
That dream is my reality
They keep me locked up in this cage
Can’t they see it’s why my brain says Rage

Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Build my fear of what’s out there
Cannot breathe the open air
Whisper things into my brain
Assuring me that I’m insane
They think our heads are in their hands
But violent use brings violent plans
Keep him tied, it makes him well
He’s getting better, can’t you tell?

No more can they keep us in
Listen, damn it, we will win
They see it right, they see it well
But they think this saves us from our hell

Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, just leave me alone
Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Fear of living on
Natives getting restless now
Mutiny in the air
Got some death to do
Mirror stares back hard
Kill, it’s such a friendly word
Seems the only way
For reaching out again

Song of the Day: In The Mood by Robert Plant

Robert Plant

In The Mood

I’m in the mood for a melody
I’m in the mood for a melody
I’m in the mood
I’m in the mood for a melody
I’m in the mood for a melody
I’m in the mood
I’m in the mood for a melody
I’m in the mood for a melody
I’m in the mood

I can make you dance – I can make you sing
I can make you dance – I can make you sing
If you want me to
I can make you dance – I can make you sing
I can make you dance – I can make you sing
If you want me to
I can make you dance – I can make you sing
I can make you dance – I can make you sing
If you want me to

Any little song that you want to sing
Little songs that you want to sing
Any song will do
Any little song that you want to sing
Little songs that you want to sing
It’s up to you
Little songs that you want to sing
A little song that you want to sing
You’re blue

I’m in the mood, I’m in the mood, I’m in the mood

I can write it on the door – I can put it on the floor
I can do anything that you want me for
If you want me to
I can do it right – I can do it wrong
‘Cause a matter of fact it’ll turn out to be strong
If you want me to

Song of the Day: The Glamorous Life by Sheila E

Sheila E

The Glamorous Life

She wears a long fur coat of mink
Even in the summer time
Everybody knows from the coy little wink
The girl’s got a lot on her mind

She’s got big thoughts, big dreams
And a big brown Mercedes sedan
What I think this girl,
She really wants is to be in love with a man

She wants to lead the glamorous life
She don’t need a man’s touch
She wants to lead the glamorous life
But without love it ain’t much

She saw him standing in the section marked
If you have to ask you can’t afford it lingerie
She threw him bread and said make me scream
In the dark what could he say

Boys with small talk and small minds
Really don’t impress me in bed
She said I need a man’s man baby
Diamonds and furs
Love would only conquer my head

She wants to lead the glamorous life
She don’t need a man’s touch
She wants to lead the glamorous life
But without love it ain’t much

They made haste in the brown sedan
They drove to fifty five Secret street
They made love and by the seventh wave
She knew she had a problem
She thought real love is real scary
Money only pays the rent
Love is forever that’s all your life
Love is heaven sent it’s glamorous

She wants to lead the glamorous life
She don’t need a man’s touch
She wants to lead the glamorous life
But without love it ain’t much

Song of the Day: Raspberry Beret by Prince

Prince with rain

Raspberry Beret

I was working part time in a five-and-dime
My boss was Mr. McGee
He told me several times that he didn’t like my kind
‘Cause I was a bit too leisurely

Seems that I was busy doing something close to nothing
But different than the day before
That’s when I saw her, ooh, I saw her
She walked in through the out door, out door

She wore a
Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn’t wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

Built like she was
She had the nerve to ask me
If I planned to do her any harm
So, look here
I put her on the back of my bike
And we went riding
Down by old man Johnson’s farm

I said now, overcast days never turned me on
But something about the clouds and her mixed
She wasn’t to bright
But I could tell when she kissed me
She knew how to get her kicks

She wore a
Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn’t wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

The rain sounds so cool when it hits the barn roof
And the horses wonder who you are
Thunder drowns out what the lightning sees
You feel like a movie star

Listen
They say the first time ain’t the greatest
But I tell ya
If I had the chance to do it all again
I wouldn’t change a stroke
‘Cause baby I’m the most
With a girl as fine as she was then

The kind you find (The kind you find)
The kind you find (In a second hand store)
Oh no no
(Raspberry beret)
(And if it was warm)
Where have all the raspberry women gone?
Yeah (Raspberry beret)

I think I, I think I, I think I love her

No no no
No no no (The kind you find)
(In a second hand store)
(Raspberry beret)
Tell me
Where have all the raspberry women gone? (And if it was warm she)
(Wouldn’t wear much more)
(Raspberry beret)

Song of the Day: Rhythm of Love by The Scorpions

Rhythm of Love

Let’s spend the night together
I know you want it too
The magic of the moment
Is what I’ve got for you
The heartbeat of this night
Is made to lose control
And there is something in your eyes
That’s longing for some more
Let us find together
The beat we’re looking for

The rhythm of love
Keeps me dancing on the road
The rhythm of love
Got the groove that hits the bone
The rhythm of love
Is the game I’m looking for
The rhythm of love
Is the heartbeat of my soul

Let’s reach the top together
One night will never do
An exploding shot of pleasure
Is what I’ve got for you
Why don’t you close your eyes
And let your feeling grow
I make you feel the taste of life
Until your love will flow
Let us find together
The beat we’re longing for

The rhythm of love
Keeps me dancing on the road
The rhythm of love
Got the groove that hits the bone
The rhythm of love
Is the game I’m looking for
The rhythm of love
Is the heartbeat of my soul

Let us find together
The beat we’re looking for

Song of the Day: Let’s Dance by David Bowie

David Bowie

Let’s Dance

Let’s dance,
Put on your red shoes and dance the blues
Let’s dance,
To the song they’re playin’ on the radio
Let’s sway,
While color lights up your face
Let’s sway,
Sway through the crowd to an empty space

If you say run,
I’ll run with you
And if you say hide,
We’ll hide
Because my love for you
Would break my heart in two
If you should fall into my arms
And tremble like a flower

Let’s dance
Let’s dance,
For fear your grace should fall
Let’s dance,
For fear tonight is all
Let’s sway,
You could look into my eyes
Let’s sway,
Under the moonlight, this serious moonlight

And if you say run,
I’ll run with you
And if you say hide,
We’ll hide
Because my love for you
Would break my heart in two
If you should fall into my arms
And tremble like a flower

Song of the Day: It’s Only Love by Simply Red

Simply Red

It’s Only Love

It’s only love
It’s only love

Don’t be afraid to touch me babe
Girl let’s be real
There’s nothing wrong
With the way we’re carrying on
So enjoy and live
Because
It’s only love doing it’s thing baby
It’s only love that you’re feeling
It’s only love doing it’s thing baby
It’s only love that you’re giving

I wanna stay with you night and day
Until the end of time
It’s OK when you lay
Lay your body next to mine
Because
It’s only love doing it’s thing baby
It’s only love that you’re feeling
It’s only love doing it’s thing baby
It’s only love that you’re giving

Song of the Day: Waterfall by Wendy and Lisa

Wendy and Lisa

Waterfall

A lonely mother gazing out of her window
Staring at a son that she just can’t touch.
If at any time he’s in a jam she’ll be by his side,
But he doesn’t realize he hurts her so much.
But all the praying just ain’t helping at all,
‘Cause he can’t seem to keep his self out of trouble.
So, he goes out and he makes his money the best way he know how,
Another body laying cold in the gutter.
Listen to me.
Don’t go chasing waterfalls.
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to.
I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all,
But I think you’re moving too fast.
Little precious has a natural obsession for temptation,
But he just can’t see.
She give him loving that his body can’t handle,
But all he can say is, “Baby, it’s good to me.”
One day he goes and takes a glimpse in the mirror,
But he doesn’t recognize his own face.
His health is fading and he doesn’t know why.
Three letters took him to his final resting place.
Y’all don’t hear me.
Don’t go chasing waterfalls.
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to.
I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all,
But I think you’re moving too fast.
I seen rainbow yesterday
But too many storms have come and gone
Leavin’ a trace of not on God-given ray
Is it because my life is ten shades of gray
I pray all ten fade away
Seldom praise Him for the sunny days
And like his promise is true
Only my faith can undo
The many chances I blew
To bring my life to anew
Clear blue and unconditional skies
Have dried the tears from my eyes
No more lonely cries
My only bleedin’ hope
Is for the folk who can’t cope
Wit such an endurin’ pain
That it keeps ’em in the pourin’ rain
Who’s to blame
For tootin’ caine in your own vein
What a shame
You shoot and aim for someone else’s brain
You claim the insane
And name this day in time
For fallin prey to crime
I say the system got you victim to your own mind
Dreams are hopeless aspirations
In hopes of comin’ true
Believe in yourself
The rest is up to me and you
Don’t go chasing waterfalls.
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to.
I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all,
But I think you’re moving too fast.
Don’t go chasing waterfalls.
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to.
I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all,
But I think you’re moving too fast.

Everything I Do (I Do It For You)

Look into my eyes – you will see
What you mean to me
Search your heart – search your soul
And when you find me there you’ll search no more

Don’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for
You can’t tell me it’s not worth dyin’ for
You know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you

Look into your heart – you will find
There’s nothin’ there to hide
Take me as I am – take my life
I would give it all – I would sacrifice

Don’t tell me it’s not worth fightin’ for
I can’t help it – there’s nothin’ I want more
Ya know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you

There’s no love – like your love
And no other – could give more love
There’s nowhere – unless you’re there
All the time – all the way

Oh – you can’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for
I can’t help it – there’s nothin’ I want more
I would fight for you – I’d lie for you
Walk the wire for you – ya I’d die for you

Ya know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you
