Song of the Day: Under Pressure by Queen w/David Bowie

freddie-and-david

Under Pressure

Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you
No man ask for

Under pressure
That brings a building down
Splits a family in two

Puts people on streets

Um ba ba be
Um ba ba be
De day da
Ee day da – that’s okay

It’s the terror of knowing
What the world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming

‘Let me out’
Pray tomorrow gets me higher

Pressure on people people on streets

Day day de mm hm
Da da da ba ba
Okay
Chipping around – kick my brains around the floor
These are the days it never rains but it pours
Ee do ba be
Ee da ba ba ba
Um bo bo
Be lap

People on streets
ee da de da de
People on streets
ee da de da de da de da

It’s the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming
‘Let me out’

Pray tomorrow – gets me higher
Higher
High

Pressure on people people on streets

Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don’t work

Keep coming up with love
But it’s so slashed and torn
Why – why – why?
Love love love love love
Insanity laughs under pressure we’re breaking

Can’t we give ourselves one more chance
Why can’t we give love that one more chance
Why can’t we give love give love give love give love
Give love give love give love give love give love

Because love’s such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the (People on streets) edge of the night
And loves (People on streets) dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure

Song of the Day: Modern Love by David Bowie

Three years ago today we lost a great entertainer, David Bowie. I am still sad over losing him, but he left behind so many great memories from his concerts, movies, etc. And he firmly placed himself in my memories of the 70s and 80s.

Modern Love

I know when to go out
And when to stay in
Get things done [spoken]

I catch a paper boy
But things don’t really change
I’m standing in the wind
But I never wave bye-bye

But I try
I try

There’s no sign of life
It’s just the power to charm
I’m lying in the rain
But I never wave bye-bye

But I try
I try

Never gonna fall for
Modern Love walks beside me
Modern Love walks on by
Modern Love gets me to the Church on Time
Church on Time terrifies me
Church on Time makes me party
Church on Time puts my trust in God and Man
God and Man no confessions
God and Man no religion
God and Man don’t believe
in Modern Love

Song of the Day: Heroes by David Bowie

Yesterday was David Bowie’s birthday. I am so sorry he was not here to celebrate. He is one of my favorites and have been since I was in junior high. He was so interesting. And “Labrynth” only cemented that. He is a musical legend and an icon in my life (and my sissy likes him more than I do!). After he passed away, he released “Blackstar”. If you like him, LISTEN TO IT. It is excellent! I love it. And he won multiple Grammy’s for it, too. This week, listen to Bowie. You will remember that great entertainer he was.

DavidBowie

Heroes

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing, will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be heroes, just for one day

And you, you can be mean
And I, I’ll drink all the time
‘Cause we’re lovers, and that is a fact
Yes we’re lovers, and that is that

Though nothing, will keep us together
We could steal time, just for one day
We can be heroes, forever and ever
What’d you say?

I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, forever and ever
Oh, we can be heroes, just for one day

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing, will drive them away
We can be heroes, just for one day
We can be us, just for one day

I, I can remember (I remember)
Standing, by the wall (by the wall)
And the guns, shot above our heads (over our heads)
And we kissed, as though nothing could fall (nothing could fall)
And the shame, was on the other side
Oh, we can beat them, forever and ever
Then we could be heroes, just for one day

We can be heroes
We can be heroes
We can be heroes
Just for one day
We can be heroes

We’re nothing, and nothing will help us
Maybe we’re lying, then you better not stay
But we could be safer, just for one day
Oh-oh-oh-ohh, oh-oh-oh-ohh, just for one day

Song of the Day: The Beautiful Ones by Prince and the Revolution

prince-tbos

The Beautiful Ones

Baby, baby, baby
What’s it gonna be
Baby, baby, baby
Is it him or is it me?
Don’t make me waste my time
Don’t make me lose my mind baby

Baby, baby, baby
Can’t you stay with me tonight
Oh baby, baby, baby
Don’t my kisses please you right
You were so hard to find
The beautiful ones, they hurt you everytime

Paint a perfect picture
Bring to life a vision in one’s mind
The beautiful ones
Always smash the picture
Always, every time

If I told you baby
That I was in love with you
Oh baby, baby, baby
If we got married
Would that be cool?

You make me so confused
The beautiful ones
You always seem to lose

Baby, baby
Baby, baby
What’s it gonna be baby?

Do you want him?
Or do you want me?
‘Cause I want you
Said I want you
Tell me, babe
Do you want me?
I gotta know, I gotta know
Do you want me?
Baby, baby, baby
Listen to me
I may not know where I’m going (babe)
I said I may not know what I need
One thing, one thing’s for certain baby
I know what I want, yeah
And if it please you baby
Please you, baby
I’m begging down on my knees
I want you
Yes I do
Baby, baby, baby, baby
I want you

Yes I do

Song of the Day: Would I Lie To You by The Eurythmics

I absolutely love this song! Annie Lennox has such a strong voice. She is also a huge supporter of women’s rights and such a good role model for young women. This is my favorite Eurythmics song, but honestly, I love all of their music.

Would I Lie To You

Would I lie to you?
Would I lie to you honey?
Now would I say something that wasn’t true?
I’m asking you sugar
Would I lie to you?

My friends – know what’s in store.
I won’t be here anymore.
I’ve packed my bags
I’ve cleaned the floor.
Watch me walkin’.
Walkin’ out the door.

(Believe me – I’ll make it make it)

Tell you straight – no intervention.
To your face – no deception.
You’re the biggest fake.
That much is true.
Had all I can take.
Now I’m leaving you

(Believe me – I’ll make it make it)

[Chorus repeats]

(Watch me – watch me! Ooh yea)

Song of the Day: High On You by Survivor

High On You

There you stood, that’ll teach ya
To look so good and feel so right
Let me tell you ’bout the girl I met last night
It’s understood, I had to reach ya
I let the wheel of fortune spin
I touched your hand before the crowd
Started crushin’ in
Now I’m higher than a kite
I know I’m gettin’ hooked on your love
Talkin’ to myself, runnin’ in the heat
Beggin’ for your touch in the middle
Of the street and I —

*I can’t stop thinking ’bout you girl
I must be living in a fantasy world
I’ve searched the whole world over
To find a heart so true
Such complete intoxication
I’m high on you*
Smart and coy, a little crazy
The kinda face that starts a fight
Let me tell you ’bout the girl I had last night
Piercin’ eyes, like a raven
You seemed to share my secret sin
We were high before the night
Started kickin’ in
Now I’m screamin’ in the night
I know I’m gettin’ hooked on your love
Talkin’ to myself, runnin’ in the heat
Beggin’ for your touch in the middle
Of the street and I —
( * Repeat)

Song of the Day: Wait For Me by Daryl Hall and John Oates

Wait For Me

Midnight hour almost over
Time is running out for the magic pair
I know you gave the best that you have
But one more chance
Couldn’t be all that hard to bear.

Wait for me please
Wait for me
Alright, I guess
that’s more than I should ask
Wait for me please
Wait for me
Although I know the light is fading fast.

You could go either way
Is it easier to stay
I wonder what you’ll do
When your chance rolls around
But you gotta know how much I want to keep you
When I’m away I’m afraid it will all fall down.
Love is what it does and ours is doing nothing
But all the time we spent
It must be good for something
Please forgive all the disturbance I’m creating
But you got a lot to learn if you think that I’m not waiting for you.

Song of the Day: Better by Guns N’ Roses

OK, this is not an 80’s song, but it is by GNR. I love Chinese Democracy. This is my favorite song on it. But I loved all of the songs!

AxlRose2


Better

No one ever told me when
I was alone
They just thought I’d know better, better

All that I wanted was

Now I know you better
You know I know better
Now I know you better

I never wanted you to be so full of anger (anger)
I never wanted you to be somebody else
I never wanted you to be someone afraid to know themselves
I only wanted you to see things for yourself

All that I wanted was

Now I know you better
Now we all know better
All that I wanted was

(chorus)
All that I want
All that I want
All that I want
All that I want
(cont. thru verses until end chorus)

If I were you
I’d manage to
Avoid the invitation

Of promised love
That can’t keep up
With your adoration
(end chorus)

Just use your head
And in the end
You’ll find your inspiration

To choose your steps
And won’t regret
This kind of aggravation

No one ever told me when
I was alone
They just thought I’d know better, better

No one ever told me when
I was alone
They just thought I’d know better, better

Song of the Day: It’s So Easy by Guns ‘N Roses


It’s So Easy

I see your sister in her
Sunday dress
She’s out to please
She pouts her best
She’s out to take
No need to try
She’s ready to make

It’s so easy, easy
When everybody’s tryin’ to
please me, baby
It’s so easy, easy
When everybody’s tryin’ to
please me

Cars are crashin’ every night
I drink n’ drive
everything’s in sight
I make the fire
But I miss the firefight
I hit the bull’s eye every night

It’s so easy, easy
When everybody’s tryin’ to
please me, baby
Yeah it’s so easy, easy
When everybody’s tryin’ to please me
So easy
But nothin’ seems to please me
It all fits so right
When I fade into the night
See me hit you
You fall down

I see you standin’ there
You think you’re so cool
Why don’t you just
Fuck off

Ya get nothin’ for nothin’
If that’s what you do
Turn around bitch I got a use for you
Besides you ain’t got nothin’ better to do
And I’m bored

It’s so easy, easy
When everybody’s tryin’ to
please me, baby
It’s so easy, easy
When everybody’s tryin’ to please me
So easy
But nothin’ seems to please me
It all fits so right
When I fade into the night
So come with me
Don’t ask me where cause I don’t know
I’ll try to please you
I ain’t got no money
But it goes to show
It’s so easy

Song of the Day: Turn Up The Radio by Autograph

Here’s to you Bryan. I miss you so much and we all know that this song reminds me of you! I truly wish you were here. Matt needs you. And I know he misses you, too. And you have a beautiful new grandson. Hopefully I will get to see him before he grows up too much!

Turn Up The Radio

Yeah!
I’m working hard, you’re working too
We do it every day
For every minute I have to work
I need a minute of play
Day in day out all week long
Things go better with rock
The only time I turn it down
Is when I’m sleepin it off
Turn up the radio
I need the music, gimme some more
Turn up the radio
I wanna feel it got to gimme some more

Now listen!
I wanna shake, I wanna dance
So count it off a’one two three
I feel the beat, I’m in a trance
No better place to be
Daytime nighttime, anytime
Things go better with rock
I’m goin’ twenty four hours a day
I can’t seem to stop

Turn up the radio
I need the music, gimme some more
Turn up the radio
I wanna feel it got to gimme some more
Turn up the radio
I wanna feel it got to gimme some more

Turn up the radio
I need the music, gimme some more
(Yeah!)
Turn up the radio
I wanna feel it got to gimme some more
(Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!)
Turn up the radio
(Come on!)
I need the music, gimme some more
(Everybody)
Turn up the radio
(Turn it up!)
I wanna feel it got to gimme some more
(Whoooooooooooooooooooo!)
Turn up the radio
(Turn it up!)
I need the music, gimme some more
(Gimme some more)
Turn up the radio
(Whew! Come on)
I wanna feel it got to gimme some more
(Gimme all you got!)
Turn up the radio
