It’s been a year of beautiful songs.
I hope they gave you as much joy as I got listening to them.
Here they are, all 367 of them, waiting for you to listen again.

Everybody Everybody – Black Box

This video is like a Warhol painting. Does everybody sees it?

Lyrics:

Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody

Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody

Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody

You won’t belong to me, I let you down
I walk around and see your night skyline
I feel the light but you don’t want to stay
So lonely now, just let me off downtown

Sad and free, sad and free
Sad and free, sad and free

When I said, it was over you aimed at my heart
Won’t be long for I’m leavin’, all my love
But I’ll feel it forever, no sound’s in my life
You can call that no livin’, on my own so free

Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody

Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody

You took me easy and then let me go
I never was, you see, that cheatin’ kind
You feel all right, you never looked for me
So long it’s time, I’ve gotta get on by

Sad and free, sad and free
Sad and free, sad and free

When I said, it was over you aimed at my heart
Won’t be long for I’m leavin’, all my love
But I’ll feel it forever, no sound’s in my life
You can call that no livin’ on my own, so free

Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody

Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody

Everybody, oh, everybody
Oh, everybody, everybody, everybody

When I said, it was over you aimed at my heart
Won’t be long for I’m leavin’, all my love
But I’ll feel it forever, no sound’s in my life
You can call that no livin’, on my own so free

Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody

What Is Love – Haddaway

“Yeah, right. Hurt me, hurt me.”
Or so Frank Zappa’s valley girl would sing this tune.

Lyrics:

What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more
Baby don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

What is love?
Yeah

I don’t know why you’re not there
I give you my love but you don’t care
So what is right and what is wrong?
Gimme a sign

What is love
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more
What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, uh, uh
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, uh, uh

Oh, I don’t know, what can I do?
What else can I say, it’s up to you
I know we’re one, just me and you
I can’t go on

What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more
What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, uh, uh
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, uh, uh

What is love?
What is love?
What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

Don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me

I want no other, no other lover
This is our life, our time
We are together, I need you forever
Is it love?

What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more
What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, uh, uh
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, uh, uh

What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more
What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more
What is love?

Back To Like – Soul II Soul

Time to wake up and face the reality.

Lyrics:

Back to life, back to reality,
back to life, back to reality,
back to life, back to reality,
back to the here and now yeah
Show me how, decide what you want from me,
tell me maybe I could be there for you.

However do you want me,
however do you need me.
How, however do you want me,
however do you need me.
However do you want me,
however do you need me.
How, however do you want me,
however do you need me.

Back to life, back to the present time,
back from a fantasy.
Yeah Tell me now, take the initiative,
I’ll leave it in your hands until you’re ready.

Oh however do you want me,

no more room for trouble or fuss.
Need a change, a positive change,

How, however do you want me,
however do you need me.
However do you want me,

Back to life back to the day we have
Let’s end this foolish game
Hear me out don’t let me waste away
Make up your mind so I know where I stand

However do you want me,
however do you need me.
How, however do you want me,
however do you need me.
However do you want me,
however do you need me.
How, however do you want me,
however do you need me.

Play That Funky Music – Wild Cherry

Come on, white boy, play it right, and we’ll crown you king of funk.

Lyrics:

Hey, do it now
Yeah, hey

Hey, Once I was a funky singer playin’ in a Rock and Roll Band
I never had no problems, yeah
Burnin’ down one night stands
And everything around me, yeah
Got to stop to feelin’ so low And I decided quickly (Yes I did)
To disco down and check out the show
Yeah, they was dancin’ and singin’ and movin’ to the groovin’
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down the boogie and play that funky music till you die
Till you die
Oh ya, ya

I tried to understand this
I thought that they were out of their minds
How could I be so foolish (How could I)
To not see I was the one behind
So still I kept on fighting
Well, loosing every step of the way
I said, I must go back there (I got to go back)
And check to see if things still the same
Yeah they was dancin’ and singin’ and movin’ to the groovin’
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down the boogie and play that funky music till you die
Till you die, ya
Till you die

(Gonna play that electified funky music, yeah)

(Hey, wait a minute)
Now first it wasn’t easy
Changin’ Rock and Roll and minds and things were getting shaky
I thought I’d have to leave it behind
But now its so much better (it’s so much better)
I’m funking out in every way
But I’ll never lose that feelin’ (no I won’t)
Of how I learned my lesson that day
When they were dancin’ and singin’ and movin’ to the groovin’
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down the boogie and play that funky music till you die
Till you die
Oh’ till you die

They shouted play that funky music
(Play that funky music)
Play that funky music
(You Gotta keep on playin’ funky music)
Play that funky music
(Play that funky music)
Play that funky music
(Come and take you higher, ya)
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right, ya
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
