Groove Is In The Heart – Deee-Lite

One hit wonder warning – Flashing lights or rapidly changing or alternating images can trigger seizures. Watch it at your own risk, but it is groovy, baby.

Lyrics:

We’re going to dance,
We’re going to dance,
We’re going to dance
And have some fun
The chills that you
Spill up my back
Keep me filled with
Satisfaction when we’re done
Satisfaction of what’s to come
(I) I couldn’t ask for another
(I-I-I-I-I I)
No I couldn’t ask for another
Your groove I do deeply dig
No walls only the bridge
My supperdish, my succotash wish
(Sing it baby)
(I) I couldn’t ask for another
(Uh-huh uh-huh)
(I-I-I-I-I I)
No I couldn’t ask for another

Groove is in the heart
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Groove is in the heart
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Groove is in the heart
Groove is in the heart
Ah-ah-ah

The depth the hula groove
Move us to the nth hoop
We goin’ through to Horten
Hears a who-ooh
(I) I couldn’t ask for another
(I-I-I-I-I I)
No couldn’t ask for another
DJ Soul (soul) was on a roll
I’ve been told he can’t be sold
He’s not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
(I) I couldn’t ask for another

(Sing it)

Groove is in the heart
Ah-ah-ah-ah
(Ne-na-na-na-na)
Groove is in the heart
(Ne-na-na-na-na)
Groove is in the heart
(Ne-na-na-na-na)
Groove is in the heart-ah-ah-ah

Groove is in the heart
Ah-ah-ah-ah (yeah)
Groove is in the heart
Ah-ah-ah
Groove is in the heart
Groove is in the heart
Ah-ah-ah

99 Luftballons – Nena

I hope your German is good. If not, just use Google Translate. It does not matter, either way, just crank up the volume and dance.

Lyrics:

Hast du etwas Zeit für mich
Dann singe ich ein Lied für dich
Von 99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Denkst du vielleicht g’rad an mich
Dann singe ich ein Lied für dich
Von 99 Luftballons
Und dass so was von so was kommt

99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Hielt man für Ufos aus dem All
Darum schickte ein General
‘ne Fliegerstaffel hinterher
Alarm zu geben, wenn es so wär
Dabei war’n da am Horizont
Nur 99 Luftballons

99 Düsenjäger
Jeder war ein großer Krieger
Hielten sich für Captain Kirk
Das gab ein großes Feuerwerk
Die Nachbarn haben nichts gerafft
Und fühlten sich gleich angemacht
Dabei schoss man am Horizont
Auf 99 Luftballons

99 Kriegsminister –
Streichholz und Benzinkanister –
Hielten sich für schlaue Leute
Witterten schon fette Beute
Riefen Krieg und wollten Macht
Mann, wer hätte das gedacht
Dass es einmal soweit kommt
Wegen 99 Luftballons

99 Jahre Krieg
Ließen keinen Platz für Sieger
Kriegsminister gibt’s nicht mehr
Und auch keine Düsenflieger
Heute zieh’ ich meine Runden
Seh’ die Welt in Trümmern liegen
Hab’ ‘nen Luftballon gefunden
Denk’ an dich und lass’ ihn fliegen

Mickey – Toni Basil

What a week of one hit wonders would be without Mickey.
With a hair like Toni’s, it’s a shame she didn’t keep it going. Oh, wait, she did:

You’ve been around all night and that’s a little long
You think you’ve got the right
But I think you’ve got it wrong

Why can’t you say goodnight
So you can take me home, Mickey?

‘Cause when you say you will, it always means you won’t
You’re givin’ me the chills, baby, please, baby, don’t
Every night you still leave me all alone, Mickey

Oh, Mickey, what a pity you don’t understand
You take me by the heart
You take me by the hand

Oh, Mickey, you’re so pretty, can’t you understand?
It’s guys like you Mickey
Oh, what you do Mickey, do Mickey?
Don’t break my heart, Mickey

Now when you take me by the Whooo’s
Ever gonna know, every time you move
I let a little more show, there’s something we can use
So don’t say no, Mickey

So come on and give it to me, anyway you can
Anyway you want to do it, I’ll take it like a man
Oh, please, baby, please
Don’t leave me in the damn, Mickey

Oh, Mickey, what a pity you don’t understand
You take me by the heart
You take me by the hand

Oh, Mickey, you’re so pretty, can’t you understand?
It’s guys like you Mickey
Oh, what you do Mickey, do Mickey?
Don’t break my heart, Mickey

Oh, Mickey, what a pity you don’t understand

I’m Too Sexy – Right Said Fred

Like this post if you think Fred is sexy. I liked it twice, and promised myself to get a six pack.

Lyrics:

I’m too sexy for my love too sexy for my love
Love’s going to leave me

I’m too sexy for my shirt too sexy for my shirt
So sexy it hurts
And I’m too sexy for Milan too sexy for Milan
New York and Japan

And I’m too sexy for your party
Too sexy for your party
No way I’m disco dancing

And I do my little turn on the catwalk
Yeah on the catwalk on the catwalk yeah

Too sexy by far
And I’m too sexy for my hat
Too sexy for my hat what do you think about that

And I do my little turn on the catwalk
Yeah on the catwalk on the catwalk yeah
I shake my little touche on the catwalk

Poor pussy poor pussy cat
I’m too sexy for my love too sexy for my love
Love’s going to leave me

And I’m too sexy for this song

Come On Eileen – Dexy’s Midnight Runners

The quintessential one hit wonder that all the girls with the name Eileen came to hate. Oh, and the stylish dungarees.

Lyrics:

(Come On Eileen)
(Come On Eileen)

Poor old Johnny Ray
Sounded sad upon the radio
But he moved a million hearts in mono
Our mothers cried
Sang along
Who’d blame them
You’ve grown, so grown
Now I must say more than ever
(Come On Eileen)
Too-ra-loo-ra, too-ra-loo-rye, aye
And we can sing just like our fathers

Come on Eileen
Oh, I swear what he means (what he means)
At this moment you mean everything
You in that dress
My thoughts I confess
Verge on dirty
Oh, come on Eileen

(Come On Eileen)

These people round here
Wear beaten down eyes sunk
In smoke dried faces
They’re so resigned to what their fate is
But not us (no not ever)
But not us (not ever)
We are far too young and clever
(Remember)
Too-ra-loo-ra, too-ra-loo-rye, aye
And you’ll hum this tune forever

Come on Eileen
Oh, I swear what he means
Aah, come on let’s
Take off everything
That pretty red dress
Eileen (tell him yes)
Aah, come on let’s
Aah, come on Eileen

That pretty red dress
Eileen (tell him yes)
Aah, come on let’s
Aah, come on Eileen

Come on Eileen, too-rye-aye
Come on Eileen, too-rye-aye
Now you’re full grown
Now you have shown
Oh, Eileen

Say, come on Eileen
These things they are real and I know
How you feel
Now I must say more than ever
Things round here have changed
I say, too-ra-loo-ra, too-ra-loo-rye-aye

Come on Eileen
Oh, I swear (what he means)
At this moment, you mean everything
You in that dress, my thoughts I confess
Which are dirty
Aah, come on Eileen

Aah, come on Eileen
Oh, I swear (what he means)
At this moment, you mean everything
You in that dress, my thoughts I confess
Well, they’re dirty
Come on Eileen

Come on Eileen…

Tainted Love – Soft Cell

It’s one hit wonder week, and it starts with a tainted mood, and of course it’s about love, what else.

Lyrics:

Sometimes I feel I’ve got to
Run away I’ve got to
Get away
From the pain that you drive into the heart of me
The love we share
Seems to go nowhere
And I’ve lost my light
For I toss and turn I can’t sleep at night

(chorus)
Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I’ll run from you
This tainted love you’ve given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that’s not nearly all
Oh…tainted love
Tainted love

Now I know I’ve got to
Run away I’ve got to
Get away
You don’t really want IT any more from me
To make things right
You need someone to hold you tight
And you’LL think love is to pray
But I’m sorry I don’t pray that way

(chorus…)

Don’t touch me please
I cannot stand the way you tease
I love you though you hurt me so
Now I’m going to pack my things and go
Tainted love, tainted love (x2)
Touch me baby, tainted love (x2)
Tainted love (x3)
