Tuesday Afternoon – The Moody Blues

Nothing can be more exciting than a Tuesday afternoon. I didn’t even know they existed until I heard this song.

Lyrics:

Tuesday afternoon,
I’m just beginning to see, now I’m on my way
It doesn’t matter to me, chasing the clouds away.

Something, calls to me,
The trees are drawing me near, I’ve got to find out why?
Those gentle voices I hear, explain it all with a sigh.

I’m looking at myself reflections of my mind,
It’s just the kind of day to leave myself behind.
So gently swaying through the fairyland of love,
If you’ll just come with me you’ll see the beauty of

Tuesday afternoon, Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday, afternoon,
I’m just beginning to see, now I’m on my way.
It doesn’t matter to me, chasing the clouds away.
Something, calls to me,
The trees are drawing me near, I’ve got to find out why?
Those gentle voices I hear, explain it all with a sigh.

Come To Me – France Joli

I know, another Monday. At least start it with a good song.

Lyrics:

Oooh!!!!! Come to me
When you’re all alone and feeling down
Come to me
When there’s nobody else around
Come to me I’m still waiting,opened armed for you
Come to me
Cause I will comfort you
When you’ve no one to turn to
Well I’ll be here just for you
Come to me
When your world is empty and cold
Come to me
When you need someone you want to hold
Come to me
In my arms I will keep you safe and warm
Come to me I will shelter you from the storm
I’m not one to pretend
Why can’t you understand
That I love you
And I love you
And I need you
And I want you
And I love you
And I love you
And I need you
And I want you
Come to me
Oh baby I’m a lonely man
But if only I could learn to cry
Maybe then
The pain inside me would subside
Come to me
And I will comfort you
Show you what love can do
I’m a lonely man
Living in a world of dreams
I’ve got everything
But the one thing that I really need
Come to me I’ll give you all the love you need
Cause I have love just for you
Come to me
When your world is empty and cold
Come to me
When you need someone you want to hold
Come to me
In my arms I will keep you safe and warm
Come to me I will shelter you from the storm
I’m not one to pretend
Why can’t you understand
That I love you
And I love you
And I need you
And I want you
And I love you
And I love you
And I need you
And I want you
Come to me I love you
Love you
Love you
Need you
Want you
Oh baby I love you
Oh baby I need you
Oh baby I love you
Oh baby I need you
Oh baby I love you
Oh baby I need you
Oh baby I love you
Oh baby I need you
Come to me I love you
And I love you
And I need you
And I want you
And I love you
And I love you
And I need you
Come to me

Jack & Diane – John Mellencamp

Heartland rock and roll for a heartland story, and a classic guitar riff.

Lyrics:

Little ditty about Jack and Diane
Two American kids growin’ up in the heartland
Jacky’s gonna be a football star
Diane debutante backseat of Jacky’s car

Suckin’ on a chili dog outside the tastee freeze
Diane’s sittin’ on Jacky’s lap, he’s got his hands between her knees
Jacky say, “Hey Diane lets run off behind a shady tree
Dribble off those Bobby brooks, let me do what I please”
And say a

“Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin’ is gone”
Say a, “Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin’ is gone, now rock on”

Jacky sits back reflects his thoughts for the moment
Scratches his head and does his best James Dean
Well you know Diane, we toughtta run of the city
Diane says “Baby, you ain’t missing nothing
Jacky say a

“Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin’ is gone
Oh yeah say life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin’ is gone”

Gonna let it roll ‘n’ rock
Let it roll
Let the Bible belt come down
And save my soul
Hold on to 16 as long as you can
Changes come around real soon
Make us women and men

Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin’ is gone
Oh yeah say life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin’ is gone

A little ditty about Jack and Diane
Two American kids doin’ the best they can

You Are My Kind – Santana & Seal

This song reminds of flying. Flying away from someone? Flying to get back to someone?
Make sure you pack some Santana songs and a bottle of sloe gin.

Lyrics:

Stay with me baby
And that’s all I ask of you
And I know that someday
You won’t remember
The way that this moment feels to you
Don’t let it go
Don’t turn your back on what you think you know
You never know you know
Don’t leave it alone
Cause I need you to cling to

[Chorus:]
Cause you are my kind
You’re all that I want
Here in this life
Until we are gone
Our breath and our skin
Our hearts and our minds
They’re one and the same
You are my kind

Well call on me baby
If you should ever need someone
To help get your head straight
I’ll be your resident all night
Sure am glad just having you around
Well all that I know
When you find love you never let it go
You never know you know
Without you I’m lost
I get scattered
I’m shattered

[Chorus:]
Cause you are my kind
You’re all that I want
Here in this life
Until we are gone
Our breath and our skin
Our hearts and our minds
They’re one and the same
Cause you are my kind
We’re one and the same
You are my kind

Don’t let it go
Don’t turn your back on what you think you know
You never know you know
Don’t leave it alone
Cause I need you to cling to

[Chorus:]
Cause you are my kind
You’re all that I want
Here in this life
Until we are gone
Our breath and our skin
Our hearts and our minds
They’re one and the same
Cause you are my kind

[Bridge]
I love and our life
My heart and my soul
Need you tonight
Your love makes me whole
And it’s all I can stand
Until you come home
I need you tonight
Cause you are my kind
I need you tonight
Cause you are my kind

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh you are my kind
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh you are my kind

I Love Rock N Roll – Joan Jett & The Blackhearts

The heart of rock and roll on display. Sing with me, baby.

Lyrics:

I saw him dancing there by the record machine
I knew he must have been about seventeen
The beat was going strong
Playing my favorite song
And I could tell it wouldn’t be long till he was with me, yeah me
And I could tell it wouldn’t be long till he was with me, yeah me

Singing, I love rock and roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock and roll
So come and take your time and dance with me
Ow!

He smiled, so I got up and asked for his name
But that don’t matter, he said, ’cause it’s all the same
He said, “Can I take you home
Where we can be alone?”
And next we were moving on, he was with me, yeah me
Next we were moving on, he was with me, yeah me

Singing, I love rock and roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock and roll
So come and take your time and dance with me
Ow!

He said, “Can I take you home
Where we can be alone?”
Next we’re moving on, he was with me, yeah me
And we’ll be moving on and singing that same old song, yeah with me

Singing I love rock and roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock and roll
So come and take your time and dance with me

I love rock and roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock and roll
So come and take your time and dance with

Loser – Beck

A life story in a word. Ha, ha, if only it was that simple.

Lyrics:

In the time of chimpanzees
I was a monkey
Butane in my veins
So I’m out to cut the junkie
With the plastic eyeballs,
Spray-paint the vegetables
Dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose
Kill the headlights
And put it in neutral
Stock car flaming’ with a loser
And the cruise control
Baby’s in Reno with the vitamin D
Got a couple of couches,
Sleep on the love seat
Someone keeps saying’
I’m insane to complain
About a shotgun wedding
And a stain on my shirt
Don’t believe everything that you breathe
You get a parking violation
And a maggot on your sleeve
So shave your face
With some mace in the dark
Saving’ all your food stamps
And burning’ down the trailer park

(Yo. Cut it.)
Soy un perdedor
I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me?

(Double-barrel buckshot)

Soy un perdedor
I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me?

Forces of evil in a bozo nightmare
Banned all the music with a phony gas chamber
‘Cuz one’s got a weasel
And the other’s got a flag
One’s on the pole, shove the other in a bag
With the rerun shows
And the cocaine nose-job
The daytime crap of the folksinger slop
He hung himself with a guitar string
Slap the turkey-neck
And it’s hanging’ from a pigeon wing
You can’t write if you can’t relate
Trade the cash for the beef
For the body for the hate
And my time is a piece of wax
Falling’ on a termite
Who’s choking’ on the splinters
Soy un perdedor
I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me?
(Get crazy with the cheeze whiz)
Soy un perdedor*
I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me?
(Drive-by body-pierce)
(Yo, bring it on down)
Soooooooyy….
[Chorus backwards]
(I’m a driver; I’m the winner;
Things are gonna change
I can feel it)
Soy un perdedor
I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me?
(I can’t believe you)
Soy un perdedor
I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me?
Soy un perdedor
I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me?
[Repeat]
(Sprechen sie Deutsch, baby?)
Soy un perdedor
I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me?
(Know what I’m saying’?)
