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

Song of the Day: Deep Cuts the Knife by Helix

helix

Deep Cuts the Knife

Lately, all the nights are all the same
Since you said goodbye
I’m all alone, the only voice is my own

Did you hear me? Are you near me?
Did you know that I hurt this bad?
Did you love me? Did you need me?
Or were you just a dream I had.

This memory haunts me forever

Better run for my life, hide from the light
Dark is the night, deep cuts the knife
No way I’ll get away
Memories here to stay, deep cuts the knife

Lately, I see your face in everything I do
Sleepless nights I lie in bed just thinkin’ of you
I can’t pretend that I don’t need you back again

Did you love me? Did you need me?
Well alright, but what’s so wrong?

This memory haunts me forever

Better run for my life, hide from the light
Dark is the night, deep cuts the knife
No way, I’ll get away
Memories here to stay, deep cuts the knife

I am your slave, got no defender
You flash the blade
I can’t escape, I can’t surrender

Run for my life, hide from the light
Dark is the night, deep cuts the knife
No way, I’ll get away
Memories here to stay

Better run for my life, hide from the light
Dark is the night, deep cuts the knife
No way, I’ll get away
Memories here to stay, deep cuts the knife

Deep cuts, deep cuts the knife
(Deep cuts the knife)
Better run, better run for my life
(Deep cuts the knife)
Oh, deep cuts the knife
(Deep cuts the knife)

Oh, memories here to stay
It won’t go away
Deep cuts the knife

I am your slave

Song of the Day: Givin’ Yourself Away by Ratt

Givin’ Yourself Away

You say you don’t want me
You say you don’t care
You say that your heart
Ain’t got no room for me there
You say you don’t need me
But I know that it’s just a lie
‘Cause when you call me in the night
Tellin’ me your life is better off without me
How come you’re sleepin’ all alone
Tellin’ me you don’t ever think about me…
Hey, you’re givin’ yourself away
It’s there in every move you make
You can’t hide your heartache away
Hey, it’s somethin’ you don’t have to say
It’s written in the tears on your face
I see through the part that you play
Your givin’ yourself away…
Your givin’ yourself away…
It doesn’t matter what you say
Your givin’ yourself away…
Your givin’ yourself away…
So you got all your freedom
And you got all your time
So you got the illusion that your doin’ fine
So you smile in the mirror
Through the sadness your smile can’t disguise
Why don’t you come right out and say
Baby you can’t take another day without me
You know I’m runnin’ through your blood
You need me like a drug and you can’t live without me…
Hey, you’re givin’ yourself away
It’s there in every move you make
You can’t hide your heartache away
Hey, it’s somethin’ you don’t have to say
It’s written in the tears on your face
I see through the part that you play
Your givin’ yourself away…
Your givin’ yourself away…
It doesn’t matter what you say
Your givin’ yourself away…
Your givin’ yourself away…
And when you call me in the night
Tellin’ me your life is better off without me
I know that you’re lyin’ there alone
Baby cause I know you can’t live without me

Song of the Day: Juke Box Hero by Foreigner

foreigner

Juke Box Hero

Standing in the rain
with his head hung low

Couldn’t get a ticket
it was a sold out show.
Heard the roar of the crowd
he could picture the scene.
Put his ear to the wall
then like a distant scream.
He heard one guitar
just blew him away

Saw stars in his eyes
and the very next day.
Bought a beat up six string in a secondhand store

Didn’t know how to play it
but he knew for sure
That one guitar
felt good in his hands.
Didn’t take long to understand.
Just one guitar
slung way down low

Was a one-way ticket
only one-way to go.
So he started rockin’ ain’t never gonna stop

Gotta keep on rockin’
Someday he’s gonna make it to the top.
And be a Juke Box Hero got stars in his eyes

He’s a Juke Box Hero.
He took one guitar stars in his eyes
Juke Box Hero he’ll come alive tonight.
In a town without a name
in a heavy downpour

Thought he passed his own shadow
by the backstage door.
Like a trip through the past
to that day in the rain

And that one guitar made his whole life change.
Now he needs to keep rockin’ he just can’t stop –
Gotta keep on rockin’ that boy has got to stay on top.
And be an Juke Box Hero got stars in his eyes

He’s a Juke Box Hero got stars in his eyes.
Yeah
Juke Box Hero got stars in his eyes
With that one guitar he’ll come alive

Come alive tonight.
So he started rockin’
ain’t never gonna stop

Gotta keep on rockin’ –
Someday he’s gonna make it to the top.
And be a Juke Box Hero got stars in his eyes.
He’s a Juke Box Hero
Juke Box Hero

Juke Box Hero got stars in his eyes
stars in his eyes.

Song of the Day: Down Boys by Warrant

Down Boys

Some things you do really make me mad I must confess
The way the street light silhouettes your thighs inside your dress
Wild child in the streets I think I see you but I really don’t know (who knows)

Goin’ a million miles an hour headed out to where the down boys go

Whoa can we rewind to where we’ve been
ooh I wish you’d take a look and see the shape I’m in

Where the down boys go GO, where the down boys go GO
Where the down boys go, yeah, I wanna go where the down boys go

You comb your hair, put on your shades you look real cool
Your giving me the run-around you make me feel like a fool
Got a lot of nerves to call me cheap even though it’s true
I don’t care where we go tonight Just take me along with you

Some things you do really make me mad I must confess
The way the street lights silhouette your thighs inside your dress

Where the down boys go GO Where the down boys go
Where the down boys go
Where the go…
