Song of the Day: Shake Me by Cinderella

Shake Me

Alright, yeah
I met this girl around quarter to ten
We made it once, she said “make me again”
She wrapped her love around me all night long
In the mornin’ we were still goin’ strong
Now let me tell ya, it sure feels good
First time I saw that girl I knew it would
Now let me tell ya, it sure felt right
No pullin’ teeth, she didn’t want to fight, she said
Shake me, all night, she said
Shake me, shake it, don’t break it baby
Shake me, all night, she said
All night long
All night long baby
Screamed and scratched and rolled out of the bed
I never really got her out of my head
And now and then she makes those social calls
Gives me a squeeze, gets me kickin’ the walls
Now let me tell ya, it still feels tight
And we were shakin’ after every bite
I feel her comin’ in the middle of the night
Screamin’ higher
Shake me, all night, she said
Shake me, shake it, don’t break it baby
Shake me, all night, she said
Shake me, oh yeah
All night, keep the fire burnin’,
‘Cause were doin’ all right
All night, come on and shake it right
Shake me
Shake me
Shake me
Shake me
Shake me all night, she said
Shake me, shake it, don’t break it baby
Shake me, all night, she said
Shake me, oh yeah
Shake me
Shake me, yeah
Shake me (oh come on baby baby)
Shake me
Shake me
Shake me

Song of the Day: Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Hanoi Rocks

Boulevard of Broken Dreams

All these broken dreams
have made me see.
That I’m strung out somebody rescue me.
Well, do I have to tell you that I love you.
Do I have to tell you that I care.
Do I have to tell you that I need you to be there.

‘Cos in the middle of the night.
When I’m much too weak to fight.
You know you’re such a welcome sight.
In the middle of the night, yeah!

On the boulevard of broken dreams.
Yeah, I talk so bad and I act so mean.
On the boulevard of broken dreams.
I gotta get back on my feet.

And was it only yesterday
you came my way.
Or was it just a while ago
and do I have to tell you you’re my lover.
Do I have to tell you I’m you’re slave
and do we have to dance until
you’re dancing on my grave.

And my lips are turning white.
And my jaw is getting tight.
And the sun is burning bright.
In the middle of the night, yeah!

On the boulevard of broken dreams.
She’ll eat you’re heart and she’ll eat you’re face.
On the boulevard of broken dreams
I gotta get back on my feet.

Do I have to tell you that I need you.
Do I have to show you that I care.
Do I have to love and steal to have you.
Do I have sell myself somewhere.
We’re gonna dance all night together.
You’ll be my queen, all be your slave.
We’re gonna stay away forever.
Until we’re dancing on my grave.

On the boulevard of broken dreams.
Boulevard of broken dreams.
Boulevard of broken dreams.
Boulevard of broken dreams.
Boulevard of broken dreams.
Boulevard of broken dreams.

Song of the Day: Too Late For Love by Def Leppard

Too Late For Love

Somewhere in the distance, I hear the bells ring
Darkness settles on the town as the children start to sing
And the lady ‘cross the street, she shuts out the night
There’s a cast of thousands waitin’ as she turns out the light

But it’s too late, too late, too late
Too late for love
Too late, too late, too late
Too late

London boys are gazin’, girls go hand in hand
With a pocket full of innocence, their entrance is grand
And the queen of the dream, stands before them all
She stretches out her hand as the curtains start to fall

But it’s too late, too late, too late
Too late for love
Too late, too late, it’s too late
Too late

Standin’ by the trapdoor, aware of me and you
Are the actor and the clown, they’re waiting for their cue
And there’s a lady over there, she’s acting pretty cool
But when it comes to playin’ life, she always plays the fool

But it’s too late, too late, it’s too late
Too late for love
Too late, it’s too late, too late
Too late

Is it all too late?
Much too late?
Can’t you see it’s all too late?
Yeah, it’s too late

Too late, too late, too late
Too late for love
Too late, too late, too late
Too late

Too late, too late, too late
Too late for love
Too late, too late, too late

Song of the Day: Fly High Michelle by Enuff Z’Nuff

Fly High Michelle

Six o’clock in the morning,
Still sitting here pouring
The drinks till they’re gone.
We did everything together,
Would have done it forever,
How did we go wrong?
I know that what goes up comes down,
I didn’t know you’d hit the ground.

Why’d you have to give it up?
You were just a little girl.
I’ll never look into your blue eyes,
Fly high Michelle.

We did it just for a good time,
A misunderstood time,
We lived with a fear.
I wish we still could have done things
And not overhung things,
I wish you were here.
And now I’ll live a life
Of could have beens
Until new life begins.

Repeat Chorus.

I’ll say another prayer tonight
And I’ll see you in the light.

Song of the Day: Girls, Girls, Girls by Mötley Crüe

Girls, Girls, Girls

Friday night and I need a fight
My motorcycle and a switchblade knife
Handful of grease in my hair feels right
But what I need to get me tight are those
Girls, girls, girls
Long legs and burgundy lips
Girls, girls, girls
Dancin’ down on the Sunset Strip
Girls, girls, girls
Red lips, fingertips
Trick or treat, sweet to eat
On Halloween and New Year’s Eve
Yankee girls you just can’t be beat
But you’re the best when you’re off your feet
Girls, girls, girls
At the dollhouse in Ft. Lauderdale
Girls, Girls, Girls
Rocking in Atlanta at Tattletails
Girls, girls, girls
Raising hell at the Seventh Veil
Have you read the news
In the Soho Tribune
Ya know she did me
Well then she broke my heart
I’m such a good good boy
I just need a new toy
I tell ya what, girl
Dance for me, I’ll keep you over-employed
Just tell me a story
You know the one I mean
Crazy Horse, Paris, France
Forget the names, remember romance
I got the photos, a manage et trois
Musta broke those Frenchies laws with those
Girls, girls, girls
Body Shop and Marble Arch
Girls, girls, girls
Tropicana’s where I lost my heart
Girls, girls, girls
(Hey Tommy, check that out man)
(What, Vince, where?)
(Right there, man) (hey)
Hey baby, you wanna go somewhere? (girls, girls, girls)
Girls, girls, girls
Girls, girls, girls
Girls, girls, girls
Girls, girls, girls

Song of the Day: Rock Me by Great White

Great White

Rock Me

Sweet little baby, you don’t have to go
Little baby, tell me you won’t go
We’d be so good together if we had the time
‘Cause being alone is a nowhere state of mind

Loving ain’t no crime, oh no
I see your man ain’t here, he don’t care
The way of the night has gone and we’ll move on
Got to find a way to face another day

I search the world for someone I’ll never find
Someone who ain’t the hurting kind
If you stay the night, oh yeah
We’ll make the wrong seem right

So come on now and
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
We’ll burn in love tonight

Sweet little baby, oh don’t you go
You ain’t so innocent, I know
I know your heart’s like mine, oh yeah
And I will find the time to make you mine
And if your love goes bad, if it makes you sad
But I’ll be back for more at your door

Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
Before the morning light, we’ll burn with love tonight
Burn with love tonight

And when your man don’t care, I will be there
Still be loving real good love, so baby now
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, come on, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
There’s no wrong or right we’ll burn with love
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, come on, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
There’s nothing left to do but make sweet love to you
Come on and rock me

Song of the Day: Still of the Night by Whitesnake

Still of the Night

In the Still of the Night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the Still of the night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

In the shadow of night
I see the full moon rise
Telling me what’s in store
My heart start aching
My body start a shaking
An’ I can’t take no more

Now I just wanna get close to you
An’ taste your love so sweet
An’ I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat

In the Still of the Night
In the Still of the Night

In the heat of the day
I hang my head down low
An’ hide my face from the sun
Thru the light of the day
Until the evening time
I’m waiting for the night to come

In the Still of the Night
In the cool moonlight
I feel my heart is aching
In the Still of the Night

In the Still of the Night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the Still of the night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

Now I just wanna get close to you
An’ taste your love so sweet
An’ I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat

In the Still of the Night

Song of the Day: Nothin But a Good Time by Poison

Nothin’ but a Good Time

Now Listen
Not a dime, I can’t pay my rent
I can barely make it through the week
Saturday night I’d like to make my girl
But right now I can’t make ends meet
I’m always workin’ slavin’ every day
Gotta get away from that same old same old
I need a chance just to get away
If you could hear me think this is what I’d say
Don’t need nothin’ but a good time
How can I resist
Ain’t lookin’ for nothin’ but a good time
And it don’t get better than this
They say I spend my money on women and wine
But I couldn’t tell you where I spent last night
I’m really sorry about the shape I’m in
I just like my fun every now and then
I’m always workin’ slavin’ every day
Gotta get away from that same old same old
I need a chance just to get away
If you could hear me think this is what I’d say
Don’t need nothin’ but a good time
How can I resist
Ain’t lookin’ for nothin’ but a good time
And it don’t get better than this
You see I raise a toast to all of us
Who are breakin’ our backs every day
If wantin’ the good life is such a crime
Lord, then put me away
Here’s to ya
Don’t need nothin’ but a good time
How can I resist
Ain’t lookin’ for nothin’ but a good time
And it don’t get better than this
Don’t need nothin’ but a good time
How can I resist
Ain’t lookin’ for nothin’ but a good time
And it don’t get better than this
Don’t need nothin’ but a good time
How can I resist
Ain’t lookin’ for nothin’ but a good time
And it don’t get better than this

Song of the Day: Wait For You by The Jason Bonham Band

Wait For You

Come tomorrow, one day closer to your heart
Lost around me, is time in itself when you’re near
Take the time, I’ll show you the lover for you
You’re too young, to know what it is that I feel

All that I can do is wait for you…Just wait for you
All that I can do is wait for you…Just wait for you

Full of sorrow, your eyes are too wide and too new
Though I know these feelings I get when you’re near
Even I…I can’t give you love without fear
You’re too young, I don’t know what’s keeping me here

All that I can do is wait for you…Just wait for you
All that I can do is wait for you…Just wait for you

(guitar solo)

All that I can do is wait for you…Just wait for you
All that I can do is wait for you…Just wait for you
All that I can do…ooooooh…oooooooooh…

Today would have been Prince Rogers Nelson’s 60th birthday. I started listening to him right before 1999 came out. Someone I knew had his album and shared it. It did not take long to become totally hooked! Of course, I saw Purple Rain in the theater several times. My sister shared this with me. Seeing it on the big screen is an overwhelming experience and I loved it! My personal love affair with The Purple One continued over the years, to this day. So, this day when he would have turned 60, let’s celebrate his legacy – his music, his talent, his showmanship – his everything! Not idolatry, I do not “idolize” him as a person. He was against that. But I admire greatly his talent and love that he shared this with the world. I love that he was here and we can always remember him and celebrate his talent and his career, even if he is not here for us any more. Watch a Prince movie (or all!) today. Of course, listen to his music, use it in the backdrop of your life. Remember when you first heard him or Purple Rain. Share your favorite song with others (mine changes all the time! Right now it is Adore and Nothing Compares 2 U). Remember his fabulous Superbowl halftime performance! Donate to a charity – specifically those that may help children or schools with art and music, something he had great passion for. But don’t forget him. LOL like I ever could or would!!!!

Nothing Compares 2 U

It’s been seven hours and thirteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away

Since you’ve been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see who ever I choose
Eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant, oh yeah
But nothing, nothing can take away these blues

Nothing compares, nothing compares to you
Oh baby

It’s been so lonely without you here
I’m like a bird without a song
Nothing can stop this lonely rain from falling
Tell me baby, where did I go wrong?

Oh baby
I can put my arms around every boy I see, oh yeah
But they only remind me of you

All my dames remind me of you too girl, oh yeah

I went to the doctor, guess what he told me
What’d he tell you?

Guess what he told me
I’m listening

He said, Try to have fun no matter what you do
You want to tell me why?

He’s a fool

Nothing compares (no), nothing compares to you

Oh, baby
Hu, hu, tenor man, play it for me

All the flowers that you planted, sugar
In the backyard all died when you went away

Oh baby, I know that living with me baby
Is sometimes hard, sometimes hard
But I’m willing, I’m willing to give it one more try

One more try
Please do you know why, do you know why

Nothing compares (no), nothing compares to you

Oh, baby
Every time I say

Nothing compares (no), nothing compares to you
