Song of the Day: Careless Whisper by George Michael

Careless Whisper

I feel so unsure
As I take your hand
And lead you to the dance floor
As the music dies
Something in your eyes
Calls to mind a silver screen
And all its sad goodbyes

I’m never gonna dance again
Guilty feet have got no rhythm
Though it’s easy to pretend
I know you’re not a fool
I should’ve known better than to cheat a friend
And waste the chance that I’ve been given
So I’m never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you

Time can never mend
The careless whispers of a good friend
To the heart and mind
Ignorance is kind
There’s no comfort in the truth
Pain is all you’ll find

I’m never gonna dance again
Guilty feet have got no rhythm
Though it’s easy to pretend
I know you’re not a fool
I should’ve known better than to cheat a friend
And waste the chance that I’ve been given
So I’m never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you

Tonight the music seems so loud
I wish that we could lose this crowd
Maybe it’s better this way
We’d hurt each other with the things we want to say
We could have been so good together
We could have lived this dance forever
But now who’s gonna dance with me
Please stay

I’m never gonna dance again
Guilty feet have got no rhythm
Though it’s easy to pretend
I know you’re not a fool
I should’ve known better than to cheat a friend
And waste the chance that I’ve been given
So I’m never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you

Now that you’re gone
Now that you’re gone
Now that you’re gone
Was what I did so wrong
So wrong that you had to leave me alone?

Song of the Day: Don’t Talk to Strangers by Rick Springfield

Don’t Talk to Strangers

When you were just a young girl and still in school
How come you never learned the golden rule?
Don’t talk to strange men, don’t be a fool
I’m hearing stories; I don’t think that’s cool

Why dont’cha tell me someone isn’t lovin’ you?
‘Cause you’re my girl, some say it’s no longer true
You’re seeing some slick continental dude
I’m beggin’ you, please

(Don’t talk to strangers)
Baby, dont’cha talk
(Don’t talk to strangers)
You know he’ll only use you up
(Don’t talk, don’t talk)
Don’t talk
(Don’t talk, don’t talk to him)
Nobody, nobody ever told you

Now tell me, how’s life in the big city?
I hear the competition’s tough; baby, that’s a pity
And every man’s an actor; every girl is pretty
I don’t like what’s gettin’ back to me

Now, who’s this Don Juan I’ve been hearing of?
Love hurts when only one’s in love
Now, did ya fall at first sight or did you need a shove?
I’m beggin’ you, please

(Don’t talk to strangers)
Baby, dont’cha talk
(Don’t talk to strangers)
You know he’ll only use you up
(Don’t talk, don’t talk)
Don’t talk
(Don’t talk, don’t talk to him)
Nobody, nobody ever told you

(Fais l’amour avec moi)
What’s he sayin’, baby?
(Viens dormir, mon amour)
I asked you not to talk to him
(Je t’aime donne moi ton cœur se soir)
I’m begging you

(Don’t talk to strangers)
Baby, dont’cha talk
(Don’t talk to strangers)
You know he’ll only use you up
(Don’t talk, don’t talk)
Don’t talk
(Don’t talk, don’t talk to him)
Nobody, nobody ever told you

(Don’t talk to strangers)
Baby, dont’cha talk
(Don’t talk to strangers)
You know he’ll only use you up
(Don’t talk to strangers)
Baby, dont’cha
(Don’t talk to strangers)
Baby, dont’cha talk
(Don’t talk to strangers…)

Song of the Day: Miss Mystery by Black ‘n Blue

Miss Mystery

Well, the first time that I saw you
You were running with the wrong crowd
With your head up in a dark cloud
You know I had this funny feeling
That you were coming for trouble
But I never knew
So here I go just running after you

Hello (Hello)
Miss Mystery
Here you are
So far from me

Someday, Miss Mystery
You’ll spare me of this misery

We had a big misunderstanding
You said the love could die in town
You tell me you can’t hang around
And now it’s getting too demanding
Yeah, you’re bringing me down
You’re playing your game
I’m tied to the tracks
‘Cause the way you led me astray

Hello (Hello)
Miss Mystery
Here you are, so far from me
Someday, you’ll set me free
And spare me of this misery

Hello (Hello)
Miss Mystery
Here I am, what’s left of me
Someday, Miss Mystery
You’re gonna find out what you meant to me

So I had this funny feeling
I should forget about you
Don’t wanna pretend
But here we are, back where we be

Hello (Hello)
Miss Mystery
Here you are, so far from me
Someday, you’ll set me free
And spare me of this misery

Hello (Hello)
Miss Mystery
Here I am, what’s left of me
Someday, Miss Mystery
You’ll spare me of this misery

Song of the Day: Call It Rock and Rock by Great White

Call It Rock and Roll

Well there’s somethin’ goin’ down
Right here in the neighborhood
Somethin’ goin’ down
Don’t know if you really should
Don’cha lose your head
I’ll make your heart feel good

There’s trouble all around
Trouble with the PTA
Tell me what’cha gonna do?
Takin’ all our highs away
S’enuff to turn you round
But Momma not today

C’mon little baby
Let’s call it rock n’ roll
C’mon little honey
Let’s call it rock n’ roll
Gonna get a good feelin’
Right down to your soul

Now your Papa’s gettin’ down
Momma sayin’ you’re no good
Baby it’s a shame
It’s never really understood
How a dose of rock n’ roll
Can make your heart feel good

Song of the Day: Notorious by Loverboy

Loverboy3

Notorious

Hey, hey, hey

Well there’s a lone wolf out on the prowl tonight
Lurkin’ in the shadows, always out of sight

I said, little girl, don’t you hesitate, cause you’re usin’ live bait
Senorita, solitaire, you got a certain kind of savoir-faire

Cause you’re notorious (notorious), everything you want,
everything you need
Cause you’re notorious (notorious), every mother’s nightmare,
Every schoolboy’s dream

Everybody by name, every trick in the book
Everywhere that she goes she gets those dirty looks

I said, little girl, don’t you hesitate, cause you’re usin’ live bait
Senorita, solitaire, you got a certain kind of savoir-faire

Cause you’re notorious (notorious), everything you want,
everything you need
Cause you’re notorious (notorious), every mother’s nightmare
Every schoolboy’s dream

Lock me up, I want to be your prisoner
Lock me up, I want to be your slave

I said, little girl, don’t you hesitate cause you’re usin’ live bait
Senorita, solitaire, you got a certain kind of savoir-faire

Cause you’re notorious (notorious), everything you want,
everything you need
Cause you’re notorious (notorious), every mother’s nightmare
Every schoolboy’s dream

Cause you’re notorious (notorious), everything I want,
everything I need
Cause you’re notorious (notorious), every mother’s nightmare
Every schoolboy’s dream

Every schoolboy’s dream, oh yeah

Lock me up

Song of the Day: She’s A Beauty by The Tubes

The Tubes

She’s A Beauty

Step right up and don’t be shy,
because you will not believe your eyes.
She’s right here behind the glass
and you’re gonna like her,
’cause she’s got class.
You can look inside another world.
You get to talk to a pretty girl.
She’s everything you dream about…
but don’t fall in love…
She’s a beauty —
one in a million girls,
she’s a beauty.
Why would I lie?
Why would I lie?
You can say anything you like,
but you can’t touch the merchandise.
She’ll give you every pennies worth,
but it will cost you a dollar first.
You can step outside your little world.
You can talk to a pretty girl.
She’s everything you dream about…
but don’t fall in love…
She’s a beauty —
one in a million girls,
she’s a beauty.
Why would I lie?
Why would I lie?

Song of the Day: Along Comes a Woman by Chicago

Along Comes a Woman

[Verse 1]
There is a time when a man needs someone to talk to
Someone to talk to, somebody who’ll always be there
All alone, nothing seemed to matter
So alone, doesn’t get much better
Can’t explain something that you’re feeling
For the very first time

[Chorus]
Then along comes a woman
There’s a change in the way that you’re feeling tonight
Then along comes a woman
And you know that it’s right

[Verse 2]
There was a time when you needed someone to count on
You needed someone to count on
Someone to care
Now she’s here, nothing seems to matter
She’s so near, everything is better
Can’t explain, something that you’re feeling
For the very first time

[Chorus][x2]

[Outro]
Then along comes a woman
There’s a change in the way that you’re feeling tonight
Then along comes a woman
And you know that it’s right

Song of the Day: Lunatic Fringe by Red Rider

Lunatic Fringe

Lunatic Fringe
I know you’re out there
You’re in hiding,
And you hold your meetings
I can hear you coming,
And I know what you’re after
We’re wise to you this time
We won’t let you kill the laughter

Lunatic Fringe –
In the twilight’s last gleaming
This is open season,
But you won’t get too far
‘Cause you got to blame someone
For your own confusion
We’re all on guard this time
Against the Final Solution
We can hear you coming no,
You’re not going to win this time,
Your not gonna win
We can hear the footsteps
Out along the walkway

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

In The End

[Chester Bennington:]
It starts with one
[Mike Shinoda:]
One thing I don’t know why
It doesn’t even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time

[Chester Bennington:]
All I know
[Mike Shinoda:] Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away

[Chester Bennington:]
It’s so unreal
[Mike Shinoda:]
It’s so unreal, didn’t look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on, did-didn’t even know
I wasted it all just to watch you go

[Chester Bennington:]
Watch you go
[Mike Shinoda:]
I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard

[Chester Bennington:]
I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter

[Mike Shinoda:]
One thing, I don’t know why
It doesn’t even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To remind myself how I tried so hard

[Chester Bennington:]
I tried so hard
[Mike Shinoda:]
In spite of the way you were mocking me
Acting like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you fought with me
I’m surprised it got so far

[Chester Bennington:]
Got so far
[Mike Shinoda:]
Things aren’t the way they were before
You wouldn’t even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me in the end

[Chester Bennington:]
In the end
[Mike Shinoda:]
You kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard

[Chester Bennington:]
I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter

I’ve put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There’s only one thing you should know

I’ve put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There’s only one thing you should know

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
