Boys Don’t Cry

Boys Don’t Cry
by The Cure

Boys Don’t Cry” was the second single to be released by The Cure, released in June 1979. It was released in the UK as a stand-alone single, and was included as the title track on Boys Don’t Cry, the American equivalent to Three Imaginary Boys. (credit: Wikipedia)

I would say I’m sorry
If I thought that it would change your mind
But I know that this time
I’ve said too much
Been too unkind
I try to laugh about it
Cover it all up with lies
I try and
Laugh about it
Hiding the tears in my eyes
’cause boys don’t cry
Boys don’t cry
I would break down at your feet
And beg forgiveness
Plead with you
But I know that
It’s too late
And now there’s nothing I can do
So I try to laugh about it
Cover it all up with lies
I try to
laugh about it
Hiding the tears in my eyes
’cause boys don’t cry
I would tell you
That I loved you
If I thought that you would stay
But I know that it’s no use
That you’ve already
Gone away
Misjudged your limits
Pushed you too far
Took you for granted
I thought that you needed me more
Now I would do most anything
To get you back by my side
But I just
Keep on laughing
Hiding the tears in my eyes
’cause boys don’t cry
Boys don’t cry
Boys don’t cry

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

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?

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

Be My Girl

Not very musical, but therapeutic and fun nonetheless… Enjoy some romping good fun this Friday!

And, please do not watch this if you are not totally 100% mature, and 18+ (I MEAN IT!)…

… … …

Be My Girl

performed by The Police

animated & directed by Eric Sullivan

Won’t you be my girl
Won’t you be my girl
Won’t you be my, be my, be my girl
… … …
I was blue and lonely, I couldn’t sleep a wink
And I could only get unconscious if I’d had to much to drink
There was somehow, something wrong somewhere
And each day seemed grey and dead
The seeds of desperation were growing in my head
I needed inspiration, a brand new start in life
Somewhere to place affection, but I didn’t want a wife
And then by lucky chance I saw in a special magazine
An ad that was unusual, the like I’d never seen
“Experience something different with our new imported toy
She’s loving, warm, inflatible and a guarantee of joy.”
She came all wrapped in cardboard, all pink and shrivelled down
A breath of air was all she needed to make her lose that frown
I took her to the bedroom and pumped her with some life
And later in a moment that girl became my wife
And so I sit her in the corner and sometimes stroke her hair
And when I’m feeling naughty I blow her up with air
She’s cuddly and she’s bouncy, she’s like a rubber ball
I bounce her in the kitchen and I bounce her in the hall
And now my life is different since Sally came my way
I wake up in the morning and have her on a tray
She’s everything they say she was and I wear a permanent grin
And I only have to worry in case my girl wears thin
Won’t you be my girl
Won’t you be my girl
Won’t you be my, be my, Be my girl
… … …

So Into You

So Into You

performed by the Atlanta Rhythm Section

When you walked into the room
There was voodoo in the vibes
I was captured by your style
But I could not catch your eyes
Now I stand here helplessly
Hoping you’ll get into me
I am so into you
I can’t think of nothing else
I am so into you
I can’t think of nothing else
Thinking how it’s going to be
Whenever I get you next to me
It’s gonna be good, dont you know
From your head to your toe
Gonna love you all over, over and over
Me into you, you into me, me into you
I am so into you
I am so into you, ooh
When you walked into the room
There was voodoo in the vibes
I was captured by your style
But I could not catch your eyes
Now I stand here helplessly
Hoping you’ll get into me
I am so into you
I can’t get to nothing else
I am so into you baby
I can’t get to nothing else
No no no come on baby
I am so into you
Love the things you do
Listen baby
Driving me crazy, oooh
Come on baby, oo-ooh
I am so into you
Love the things you do
Come on baby
I am so into you

One of my favorite bands of ALL TIME!

Telephone Line

performed by Electric Light Orchestra

Hello. How are you?
Have you been alright, through all those lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely nights
That’s what I’d say. I’d tell you everything
If you’d pick up that telephone yeah yeah yeah
Hey. How you feelin?

Don’t you realize the things we did, we did, were all for real, not a dream?
I just can’t believe
They’ve all faded out of view yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Doowop dooby doo doowop doowah doolang
Blue days black nights doowah doolang

And I wonder why the little things you planned ain’t coming true
Oh oh Telephone Line, give me some time, I’m living in twilight
Oh oh Telephone Line, give me some time, I’m living in twilight
Ok. So no one’s answering
Well can’t you just let it ring a little longer longer longer oh oh ooohhhhh
I’ll just sit tight through shadows of the night
And let it ring for evermore oh oh ooohhhhh yeah yeah yeah
Doowop dooby doo doowop doowah doolang
Blue days black nights doowah doolang
When I look into the sky, the love you need ain’t gonna see you through
And I wonder why the little things you planned ain’t coming true
Oh oh Telephone Line, give me some time, I’m living in twilight.

Shambhala

What does your Shambhala look like?

What does your Shambhala look like?

Shambhala, also translated as Shangri-La, means “pure land” in Tibetan language. It is the myth of the Buddhist world and the birthplace of Kalachakra teachings. With regard to the existence of Shambhala, there has always been skepticism, and the Shambhala Buddhist scholars think that it is a fictional paradise. Tibetan historical books recorded in great detail the Shambhala. However, if Shambhala, exists or not, is still a mystery. (credit: Top 10 Unsolved Mysteries of Tibet)

“It is a pure land, a pure land in the human realm. And unless one has the merit and the actual karmic association, one cannot actually arrive there.” Dalai Lama

Shambhala

performed by Three Dog Night

Wash away my troubles, wash away my pain
With the rain in Shambhala
Wash away my sorrows, wash away my shame
With the rain in Shambhala
(Chorus)
*Ooooh… yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah*
*Ooooh… yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah*
Everyone is helpful, everyone is kind
On the road to Shambhala
Everyone is lucky, everyone is so kind
On the road to Shambhala
(Chorus)
How does your light shine
In the halls of Shambhala
How does your light shine
In the halls of Shambhala
I can tell my sister ’bout the flowers in her eyes
On the road to Shambhala
I can tell my brother ’bout the flowers in his eyes
On the road to Shambhala
(Chorus)

Hot Dog

Have some good ole foot-tappin’ British rockabilly to help get you through today 🙂

Hot Dog

by Led Zeppelin

Did you know (credit Wikipedia):

  • It is the only song on the album, In Through the Out Door, not co-written by bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones.
  • The song was influenced by American Rockabilly music. It emerged from the band’s London pre-production rehearsals, at which it was typical for them to run through old Elvis and Ricky Nelson material from the 1950s.
  • Plant said the lyrics were a tribute to Texas and the state of mind of the people who lived there. Plant also mentions the name “U-Haul” in one of the song’s verses, referencing the American-based, “move-it-yourself” company. The title of the song – Hot Dog – refers to a distinctly American cuisine.
  • Page used a Fender Telecaster on this song, outfitted with a device called a B-Bender. This device, which raises the pitch of the guitar’s B String via interface with the musician’s guitar strap, can be heard at the end of the song’s guitar solo.

Well I just got into town today
To find my girl who’s gone away
She took the Greyhound at the General Store
I searched myself I searched the town
When I finally did sit down
I find myself no wiser than before
She said we couldn’t do no wrong
No other love could be so strong
She locked up my heart in her bottom drawer
Now she took my heart she took my keys
From in my old blue dungarees
And I’ll never go to Texas anymore
[Chorus:] Now my baby’s gone I don’t know what to do
She took my love and walked right out the door
And if I ever find that girl I know one thing for sure
I’m gonna give her something like she never had before
I took her love at seventeen
A little late these days it seems
But they said heaven is well worth waiting for
I took her word I took it all
Beneath the sign that said “U-haul”
She left angels hangin’ round for more
[Chorus]
I thought I had it all sewn up
Our love, a plot, a pick-up truck
But folks said she was after something more
I never did quite understand
All that talk about rockin’ bands
But they just rolled my doll right out the door
Oh yeah, they just rolled my doll right out the door!
