I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you’re around
Oh baby When I see your face
Mellow as the month of May
Oh darling I can’t stand it
When you look at me that way
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you’re around
Oh darling When you’re near me
And you tenderly call my name
I know that, My emotions
Are something I just can’t tame
I’ve just got to have you baby
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I just lose control
Down to my very soul
I get hot and cold all over
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
tumbling down, tumbling down…

Haze of Love

Haze of Love

performed by Cake

special appearance by John Dedeke

It’s three o’clock in the morning,
Or maybe it’s four.
I am thinking of you,
Wondering what I should do,
But I’m finally cutting through this haze.
It’s four o’clock in the morning,
Or maybe it’s five.
I think I’m alive,
And I think I’ll survive.
I’m finally cutting through this haze of love.
Haze of love.
For days and days and days,
I’m in a haze of love.
Yeah you don’t love me like I love you.
All though you pretend,
I can see this will end.
I’m finally cutting through this haze of love.
Haze of love.
For days and days and days,
I’m in a haze of love.
It’s five o’clock in the morning,
Or maybe it’s six.
I am sick of your lies.
I am sick of your tricks.
I’m finally cutting through this haze of love.
Haze of love.
For days and days and days,
For days and days and days,
For days and days and days,
I’m in a haze of love.

Double Vision

I tried to find a video for this one, but I guess it’s just too old 😉

Double Vision

performed by Foreigner

Feeling down ‘n’ dirty, feeling kinda mean
I’ve been from one to another extreme
This time I had a good time, ain’t got time to wait
I wanna stick around ’till I can’t see straight
Fill my eyes with that double vision
No disguise for that double vision
Ooh, when it gets through to me, it’s always new to me
My double vision gets the best of me
Never do more than I, I really need
My mind is racing, but my body’s in the lead
Tonight’s the night, I’m gonna push it to the limit
I live all of my years in a single minute
Fill my eyes with that double vision
No disguise for that double vision
Ooh, when it gets through to me, it’s always new to me
My double vision always seems to get the best of me, the best of me, yeah-eah eah-eah-hey
Ooh-ooh (oooh) ooh-ooh, double vision
(Oooh) I need double vision
(Oooh, double vision) it takes me out of my head, takin’ me out of my head
(Oooh, double vision) I get my double vision, woa-oah
(Oooh, double vision) seeing double double, double vision
(Oooh, double vision) oh-oh my my double vision
(Oooh, double vision) double vision, yeah-ah-ah eah-eah eah-eah ah
(Oooh, double vision) I get double vision, oooh
How, how?

I Can’t Wait

Please tell me — is she fixing a clock? And what’s up with the dog?

I Can’t Wait

by Nu Shooz

My love, tell me what it’s all about
You’ve go something that I can’t live without
Happiness, is so hard to find
Hey baby, tell me what is on your mind
Coz I can’t wait (baby I can’t wait) till you call me on the telephone
I can’t wait (baby I can’t wait) till we’re all alone
You know I love you even when you don’t try
I know that our love will never die
Hey darling when you look into my eye
Please tell me you’ll never have to say goodbye
Coz I can’t wait (baby I can’t wait) this is what I’ve been waiting for
I can’t wait (baby I can’t wait) till my love walked in the door
I can’t wait (baby I can’t wait) true love is so hard to find
I found yours, you found mine
I can’t wait (baby I can’t wait) tell me what is on your mind
Got to let you know
I can’t wait (baby I can’t wait) till you call me on the telephone
I can’t wait (baby I can’t wait) till we’re all alone
Oh oh I can’t wait (baby I can’t wait) true love is so hard to find
I found yours, you found mine
I can’t wait (baby I can’t wait) tell me what is on your mind
No, no, I can’t wait (baby I can’t wait)
No, I can’t wait (baby I can’t wait)
Say it one more time
Oh I can’t wait (baby I can’t wait) this is what I’ve been waiting for
Oh I can’t wait (baby I can’t wait) till my love walked in the door

Never Too Much

Love the video… Love the fashion… Love the 80s…

Never Too Much

by Luther Vandross

I can’t fool myself, I don’t want nobody else to ever love me
You are my shinin’ star, my guiding light, my love fantasy
There’s not a minute, hour, day or night that I don’t love you
You’re at the top of my list ’cause I’m always thinkin’ of you
I still remember in the days when I was scared to touch you
How I spent my day dreamin’ plannin’ how to say I love you
You must have known that I had feelings deep enough to swim in
That’s when you opened up your heart and you told me to come in
Oh, my love
A thousand kisses from you is never too much
I just don’t wanna stop
Oh, my love
A million days in your arms is never too much
I just don’t wanna stop
Too much, never too much, never too much, never too much
Woke up today, looked at your picture just to get me started
I called you up, but you weren’t there and I was broken hearted
Hung up the phone, can’t be too late, the boss is so demandin’
Opened the door up and to my surprise there you were standin’
Well, who needs to go to work to hustle for another dollar
I’d rather be with you ’cause you make my heart scream and holler
Love is a gamble and I’m so glad that I’m winnin’
We’ve come a long way and yet this is only the beginnin’
Oh, my love
A thousand kisses from you is never too much
(Never too much, never too much, never too much)
I just don’t wanna stop
Oh, my love
A million days in your arms is never too much
(Never too much, never too much, never too much)
And I just don’t wanna stop
Oh, my love
A thousand kisses from you is never
(Never too much, never too much, never too much)
I just don’t wanna stop
Oh, my love
A million days in your arms is never too much

Sunnyside of the Street

Sunnyside of the Street

by The Pogues

Seen the carnival at Rome
Had the women I had the booze
All I can remember now
Is little kids without no shoes
So I saw that train
And I got on it
With a heartful of hate
And a lust for vomit
Now I’m walking on the sunnyside of the street
Stepped over bodies in Bombay
Tried to make it to the U.S.A.
Ended up in Nepal
Up on the roof with nothing at all
And I knew that day
I was going to stay
Right where I am, on the sunnyside of the street
Been in a palace, been in a jail
I just don’t want to be reborn a snail
Just want to spend eternity
Right where I am, on the sunnyside of the street
As my mother wept it was then I swore
To take my life as I would a whore
I know I’m better than before
I will not be reconstructed
Just wanna stay right here
On the sunnyside of the street

If I Had a Heart

If I Had a Heart

performed by Andy Burrows

I forget someone had to pay for this with love
And you expect someone had to give themselves away
So forget the lies, yeah I told them out of spite
Despite everything I guess you’re right

If I had a heart,
I would’ve let you go
And if I had a heart.
well I wonder would I know,
That we’re still miles away,
still running and hiding,
If I had a heart,
was good to you, what good would that do now?

And so we let things fall to the ground we held so dear
And you can’t hold it all together just to give it all away

So forget the lies, yeah I told them out of spite
Despite everything I guess you’re right.

If I had a heart,
I would’ve let you go
And if I had a heart.
well I wonder would I know,
That we’re still miles away,
still running and hiding,
If I had a heart,
was good to you, what good would that do yeah?
If I had a heart,
was good to you, what good would that do now?

Crush

Crush

performed by The Dave Matthews Band

Crazy, how it, feels tonight.
Crazy, how you, make it all alright love.
You crush me, with the, things you do,
I do, for you, anything too oh.
Sitting, smoking, feeling high.
And in this, moment, ah, it feels so right.
Lovely lady, I am at your feet, oh, God I want you so badly.
And I wonder this could tomorrow be so wondrous as you there sleeping.
Let’s go, drive till, the morning comes.
And watch the, sunrise, and fill our souls up.
Well drink some, wine til, we get drunk, yes…
It’s crazy, I’m thinking, just knowing that the world is round.
I’m here I’m dancing on the ground.
Am I right side up or upside down, and is this real, or am I dreaming?
Lovely lady, let me drink you, please, I won’t spill a, drop no, I promise you.
Lying under this spell you cast on me.
Each moment the more, I, love, you. crush me, come on. oh, yes.
It’s crazy I’m thinking, just knowing that the world is round.
I’m here I’m dancing on the ground.
Am I right side up or upside down?
Is this real, oh lord, or am I dreaming?
Lovely lady, I will treat you sweetly, adore you, I mean, you crush me.
Oh it’s times like these when my faith I feel.
I know, how, I, love, you. come on, come on, baby.
It’s crazy, I’m thinking just as long as you’re around.
I’m here I’ll be dancing on the ground.
Am I right side up or upside down?
To each other, well be facing.
My love, my love, we’ll beat back the pain we’ve found.
You know, I mean to tell you all the things I’ve been thinking, deep inside, my friend.
With each moment the more I love you. Crush me, come on, baby.
So much you have, given love, that I would give you back again and again.
Oh, the love, many now hold you but please, please, just let me, always

Moon Over Bourbon Street

Moon Over Bourbon Street

by Sting

There’s a moon over Bourbon Street tonight
I see faces as they pass beneath the pale lamplight
I’ve no choice but to follow that call
The bright lights, the people, and the moon and all
I pray everyday to be strong
For I know what I do must be wrong
Oh you’ll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet
While there’s a moon over Bourbon Street

It was many years ago that I became what I am
I was trapped in this life like an innocent lamb
Now I can only show my face at noon
And you’ll only see me walking by the light of the moon
The brim of my hat hides the eye of a beast
I’ve the face of a sinner but the hands of a priest
Oh you’ll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet
While there’s a moon over Bourbon Street

She walks everyday through the streets of New Orleans
She’s innocent and young from a family of means
I have stood many times outside her window at night
To struggle with my instinct in the pale moon light
How could I be this way when I pray to God above
I must love what I destroy and destroy the thing I love
Oh you’ll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet
While there’s a moon over Bourbon Street

She’s Come ‘Undun’

Undun

performed by the Guess Who

She’s come Undun
She didn’t know what she was headed for
And when I found what she was headed for
It was too late
She’s come Undun
She found a mountain that was far too high
And when she found out she couldn’t fly
It was too late
It’s too late
She’s gone too far
She’s lost the sun
She’s come Undun
She wanted truth but all she got was lies
Came the time to realize
And it was too late
She’s come Undun
She didn’t know what she was headed for
And when I found what she was headed for
Mama, it was too late
It’s too late
She’s gone too far
She’s lost the sun
She’s come Undun
Too many mountains, and not enough stairs to climb
Too many churches and not enough truth
Too many people and not enough eyes to see
Too many lives to lead and not enough time
It’s too late
She’s gone too far
She’s lost the sun
She’s come Undun
Doe-doe-doe-doe-doe doe un doe-doe-doe un doe-doe-doe
Doe doe-doe-doe-doe un doe-doe-doe doe-doe-doe
Doe doe-doe-doe doe doe-doe-doe doe doe
—— flute ——
It’s too late
She’s gone too far
She’s lost the sun
She’s come Undun
She didn’t know what she was headed for
And when I found what she was headed for
It was too late
She’s come Undun
She found a mountain that was far too high
And when she found out she couldn’t fly
Mama, it was too late
It’s too late
She’s gone too far
She’s lost the sun
She’s come Undun
No no-no-no-no-no no
Doe doe doe-doe
