What About Love?

Mad World

The version I remember from long, long ago…

Mad World
by Tears for Fears

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places
Worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere
Going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression
No expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow
No tomorrow
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I´m dying
Are the best I´ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
‘Cos I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It´s a very very
Mad world
Mad world
Mad world
Mad World
Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday
Happy birthday
And I feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen
Sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me
No one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what´s my lesson
Look right through me
Look right through me
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I´m dying
Are the best I´ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
Cos’ I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It´s a very very
Mad world
Mad world

Head Over Heels

Head Over Heels
by Tears For Fears

I wanted to be with you alone
And talk about the weather
But traditions I can trace against the child in your face
Won’t escape my attention
You keep your distance with a system of touch
And gentle persuasion
I’m lost in admiration could I need you this much
Oh, you’re wasting my time
You’re just wasting time
Something happens and I’m head over heels
I never find out till I’m head over heels
Something happens and I’m head over heels
Ah don’t take my heart
Don’t break my heart
Don’t throw it away
I made a fire and watching burn
Thought of your future
With one foot in the past now just how long will it last
No no no have you no ambition
My mother and my brothers used to breathe in clean in air
And dreaming I’m a doctor
It’s hard to be a man when there’s a gun in your hand
Oh I feel so…
Something happens and I’m head over heels
And this my four leaf clover
I’m on the line, one open mind
This is my four leaf clover
One little boy, one little man,
Funny how time flies.

All Fired Up

I forgot all about this wonderful song until I was looking up yesterday‘s. Please enjoy two days of the lovely Ms. Pat Benetar on me 😉

All Fired Up

performed live by Pat Benetar

Livin’ with my eyes closed, goin’ day to day
I never knew the difference, I never cared either way
Lookin’ for a reason, searchin’ for a sign
Reachin’ out with both hands, I gotta feel the kick inside
All Fired Up
Now I believe there comes a time
All Fired Up
When everything just falls in line
All Fired Up
We live an’ learn from our mistakes
All Fired Up, Fired Up, Fired Up – Hey
Ain’t nobody livin’, in a perfect world
Everybody’s out there, cryin’ to be heard
Now I got a new fire, burnin’ in my eyes
Lightin’ up the darkness, movin’ like a meteorite
Chorus:
All Fired Up
Now I believe there comes a time
All Fired Up
When everything just falls in line
All Fired Up
We live an’ learn from our mistakes
All Fired Up, Fired Up, Fired Up
The deepest cuts are healed by faith
Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live an’ learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith
Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live an’ learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith
Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live an’ learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith
Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live an’ learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith
Now I believe

Treat Me Right

Treat Me Right

performed live by Pat Benetar

You want me to leave, you want me to stay
You ask me to come back, you turn and walk away
You wanna be lovers, and you wanna be friends
I’m losing my patience, you’re nearing the end
One of these days you’re gonna reach out and find
The one that you count on has left you behind
Don’t want to be no martyr, with no one, no say
Oh my, my baby, before it’s too late
Treat Me Right
Treat Me Right
Open your eyes, maybe you’ll see the light
Do you think I’m a fool, well you better think twice
I’ve had enough baby, it’s time you realized
That you can’t have it both ways, it’s no way to live
You’ve done all the takin’, it’s your turn to give
One of these days you’re gonna reach out and find
The one that you count on has left you behind
Don’t want to be no martyr, with no one, no say
Oh my, my baby, before it’s too late
Treat Me Right
Treat Me Right
Open your eye’s, maybe you’ll see the light
Ooh, Ooh, Treat Me Right
You want me to leave, you want me to stay
You ask me to come back, you’re turn and walk away
You wanna be lovers, and you wanna be friends
I’m losing my patience, you’re nearing the end
Treat Me Right
Treat Me Right
Open your eyes, maybe you’ll see the light
Ooh, Ooh, Treat Me Right
Treat Me Right – Treat Me Right
Treat Me Right – Treat Me Right

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

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
