Mylène Farmer - Je te rends ton amour by leebil
Lyrics - incl. English translation:

M'extraire du cadre
Ma vie suspendue
Je rêvais mieux
Je voyais l'âtre
Tous ces inconnus
Toi parmi eux

Extracting myself from the frame
My life, suspended
I dreamt of better.
I saw the hearth
All those unknowns,
You among them


Toile,
Fibre qui suinte
Des meurtrissures
Tu voyais l'âme
Mais j'ai vu ta main
Choisir Gauguin
Canvas,
Fibre that oozes
Bruises
You saw the soul,
But I saw your hand
Choosing Gaugin


Et je te rends ton amour
Redeviens les contours
Je te rends ton amour
C'est mon dernier recours
Je te rends ton amour
Au moins pour toujours
Redeviens les contours
" la femme nue debout "

And I return your love,
Become once more the contours,
I return your love
It's my last resort
I return your love
At least, forever
Become once more the contours
"The naked woman standing"


M'extraire du cadre
La vie étriquée
D'une écorchée
J'ai cru la fable
D'un mortel aimé
Tu m'as trompé

Extracting myself from the frame,
The skewed life
Of a butchered woman
I believed the fable,
Of a beloved mortal
[But] you betrayed me


Toi
Tu m'as laissé
Me compromettre
Je serai " l'Unique "
Pour des milliers d'yeux
Un nu de maître

You,
You allowed me
To compromise myself.
I will be the "unique"
For thousands of eyes
A master's nude


Et je te rends ton amour
Au moins pour toujours
Je te rends ton amour
Le miens est trop lourd
Et je te rends ton amour
C'est plus flagrant le jour
Ses couleurs se sont diluées
Et je reprends mon amour
Redeviens le contour
De mon seul maître : EGON SHIELE et...

And I return your love,
At least forever
I return your love
Mine is too heavy
And I return your love
It is more obvious in the day,
[that] it's colors are diluted
And I return your love,
Become once more the frame
Of my only master: egon shiele and ....

And I return your love,
At least forever
I return your love
Mine is too heavy
And I return your love
It is more obvious in the day,
[that] it's colors are diluted
And I return your love,
Become once more the frame
Of my only master: egon shiele and ....

Chicane - Saltwater (1999)

Nick Bracegirdle, a.k.a. Chicane, in 1999 composed one of my all-time favourite tunes in musical category of Trance : Saltwater

Turn it up loud, close your eyes, and imagine being in Chicago, walking on the stormy wave-whipping lake shore while the rain is battering down from above.
Ending up absolutely sogged from all sides, but happy, watching the city skyline with sea birds circling. Exactly this is what I experienced. Awesome! - The track uses parts of Clannad's 1982 hit Theme From Harry's Game with both re-recorded and newly-written lyrics, performed by Irish Celtic folk singer and Clannad singer Máire Brennan, sister of Enya.

Lyrics:

This is the end
Hold your breath and count to ten
Feel the earth move and then
Hear my heart burst again

For this is the end
I’ve drowned and dreamt this moment
So overdue I owe them
Swept away, I’m stolen

Let the sky fall
When it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together

Let the sky fall
When it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
At skyfall

Skyfall is where we start
A thousand miles and poles apart
Where worlds collide and days are dark
You may have my number, you can take my name
But you’ll never have my heart

Let the sky fall
When it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together

Let the sky fall
When it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
At skyfall

Where you go I go
What you see I see
I know I’d never be me
Without the security
Of your loving arms
Keeping me from harm
Put your hand in my hand
And we’ll stand

Let the sky fall
When it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together

Let the sky fall
When it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
At skyfall

Let the sky fall
We will stand tall
At skyfall

Safri Duo - Played A Live (2000/01)

Uffe Savery (*1966) and Morten Friis (*1968), a.k.a. Safri Duo, met in 1977 while attending the Tivoli Garden Boys' Guard, and later, during their time at the Royal Swedish Conservatory of Music, formed the Safri Duo, whose name originated from the first letters of their respective surnames. Initially very classically oriented, by 1999 they were discovered by a label executive working on classical music. After being signed, a track mixing both tribal sound and modern electronica was set to be released in 2000. The result was the popular 'Played-A-Live', which became one of the most popular songs in Europe in 2001. Earlier in 2000, a track named "The Bongo Song" started appearing on club's playlists. Produced by Michael Parsberg, it soon got airtime on MTV Europe. The mix between tribal drums over trance proved to be a success, and it ended the year as one of the best selling singles in Europe in 2000 as well as featuring prominently in the opening ceremony of the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. This resulted in Safri Duo guesting along with Danish pop group Aqua during the interval of the Eurovision Song Contest 2001 held in Copenhagen.
The track sold 1.5 million copies, being the 4th fastest selling single in Europe - ever.

Diana Ross - Eaten Alive (1985)

Eaten Alive was written by Barry Gibb, Maurice Gibb (of Bee Gees fame) and Michael Jackson, who also co-produced the track and the album with same name, and can be heard backing up Diana Ross. The track was originally credited to Barry and Maurice Gibb, and not until Michael Jackson heard the demo of it that he suggested the chorus could be improved and finally copyright re-registered with the note ‘words and music in the choruses have been completely rewritten’

UK#71, US#77



Lyrics:

Animal stalking you at night
I'm a sucker for someone
And I got the prey in sight
Lying on a bed of leaves
In the modern times
You forget and let your spirit breathe

Capture me my blood is red
Another victim of your ritual
For you my skin is shed
Ecstacy ain't what you find
In the modern world
One flick of my tongue changes
The meaning of the world
And you say

That's impossible
That's not impossible to do, oh
And you digest what I can see
The taste of you can be

I don't wanna get eaten alive
'Cause you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust, you see
I don't wanna get eaten alive
To be eaten alive
Eaten alive
I don't ever wanna be
Eaten alive

Now I got you on the run
And the quicker my senses
And the chance is, I'm the faster one
I know the universal law
Primeval times
With a little stimulation
It'll come once more, and you say

That's impossible
It's not impossible to do, oh
And you digest what I can see
The taste of you can be

I don't wanna get eaten alive
'Cause you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust
You see
I don't wanna get eaten alive
To be eaten alive
Eaten alive
I don't ever wanna be
Eaten alive

I don't wanna get eaten alive
'Cause you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust
You see
I don't wanna get eaten alive
To be eaten alive
Tie me to a tree, crawl all over me
You can rip my shirt, drag me in the dirt
I will be your slave, anything you say
I don't ever wanna be eaten alive

I don't wanna get eaten alive
'Cos you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust, you see
I don't wanna get eaten alive
'Cos you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust, you see
I don't wanna get eaten alive
'Cos you're dangerous
No more hearts I can trust, you see
I don't wanna get eaten alive
To be eaten alive

Gotta do her, crawl all over me
You can rip my shirt, drag me in the dirt
I will be your slave, anything you say
I don't ever wanna be, eaten alive

I need this feeling to heal my belief in the moment

My pulse flows to the tempo

Laura Branigan - Self Control & Satisfaction (1984)


Laura Ann Branigan was born in 1957 in Brewster, NY, to Italo-Irish parents and began her musical career as early as 1973 in a band called Meadow. Following their break-up, she had several jobs, including being background singer to artists like Leonhard Cohen.
In 1979 she was signed to Atlantic Records, who gave her the chance to write and sing independently. The results were the tracks 'Looking Out For Number One' and an unreleased album called 'Silver Dreams' in 1981.

Her breakthrough came with the release of her self-titled album. 'Gloria' released in 1982, made her a household name in America and Austrlia. It remained in the US Billboard Charts for a whopping 39 weeks, which set a record at the time.
Her European fame came with her third album 'Self Control'. The release of the title track hit the continent like a bomb should also mark the height of her career. The song became her most popular international hit, topping the charts in several countries, most notably West Germany, where it spent seven weeks at DE#1! This is how I got to know her. Oddly enough Laura never really scored high in Italy.
By the time of Branigan's fourth album, 1985's Hold Me, 'Self Control' was a world-wide success. The hits continued with 'Spanish Eddie', 'Hold Me' and 'I Found Someone' (co-written by Michael Bolton, and later a hit for Cher). However, neither song was supported by a music video and stalled in the lower reaches of the Hot 100 chart.
Touch, which was released in 1987, marked a change in Branigan's career. Under new management and using different producers, Branigan took a more active role in her work and in the studio. Touch saw her return to dancefloors with the Stock/Aitken/Waterman-produced 'Shattered Glass'. The album also included a return to the Billboard Top 40 with her cover of Jennifer Rush's 'The Power of Love', which was one of the bestselling singles in the US.
During the height of her career, Branigan also made acting appearances, first in 1981 in An American Girl in Berlin for German television, and then after the success of 'Gloria', guest appearances on American TV series such as CHiPs and Knight Rider. She would later do independent films such as Mugsy's Girls (aka Delta Pi, 1985)and the Australian film Backstage.
Branigan also contributed songs to notable movie and television soundtracks, including the Grammy- and Academy Award-winning Flashdance soundtrack (1983), the Ghostbusters soundtrack (1984), and the Baywatch soundtrack (1994), as well as having songs featured in the popular Grand Theft Auto video game series.
Laura died all too early at her home on Long Island, NY, on August 26, 2004. Her death was attributed to a previously undiagnosed brain aneurysm. Her ashes were scattered over Long Island Sound.

Lyrics:

Au-dessus des vieux volcans, glisse des ailes sous les tapis du vent
Voyage, voyage, éternellement.
De nuages en marécages, de vent d'Espagne en pluie d'équateur
Voyage, voyage, vole dans les hauteurs
Au-d'ssus des capitales, des idées fatales, regarde l'océan.

Voyage, voyage plus loin que la nuit et le jour (voyage voyage)
Voyage (voyage) dans l'espace inouï de l'amour.
Voyage, voyage sur l'eau sacrée d'un fleuve indien (voyage voyage)
Voyage (voyage) et jamais ne reviens.

Sur le Gange ou l'Amazone
Chez les blacks, chez les sikhs, chez les jaunes
Voyage, voyage dans tout le royaume.
Sur les dunes du Sahara, des îles Fidji au Fuji-Yama
Voyage, voyage, ne t'arrête pas.
Au-d'ssus des barbelés, des coeurs bombardés, regarde l'océan.

Voyage, voyage plus loin que la nuit et le jour (voyage voyage)
Voyage (voyage) dans l'espace inouï de l'amour.
Voyage, voyage sur l'eau sacrée d'un fleuve indien (voyage voyage)
Voyage (voyage) et jamais ne reviens.

Voyage, voyage sur l'eau sacrée d'un fleuve indien (voyage voyage)

English translation - Voyage Voyage:

Voyage = journey, travel

Above the ancient volcanoes,
Wings gliding through the ruffling flags of the wind,
Voyage, voyage,
Eternally.
From clouds in swamps,
From the Spanish wind to the equatorial rain,
Voyage, voyage,
Fly in the highlands
Above the capitals,
Look upon the ocean...
Voyage, voyage
Farther than night and day, (voyage, voyage)
Voyage (voyage)
In the incredible feelings of love.
Voyage, voyage
Upon the holy water of an Indian river, (voyage voyage)
Voyage (voyage)
And never come back.
On the Ganges or the Amazon,
With Blacks, with Sikhs, with Asians
Voyage, voyage
In the whole kingdom.
Upon the dunes of the Sahara,

From the Islands of Fiji to Fujiyama,
Voyage, voyage,
Don't stop.
Above the barbed wire fences,
Stricken hearts
Look upon the ocean.
Voyage, voyage
Farther than night and day, (voyage, voyage)
Voyage (voyage)
In the incredible feelings of love.
Voyage, voyage
Upon the holy water of an Indian river, (voyage voyage)

Stephanie - Irresistable & One Love To Give (1986)

Singing royalty? But of course. In the 80s that was far from unthinkable. But fear not, I won't give you our dear Lizzy giving her vocal best in the shower...

...instead I give you Princess Stéphanie of Monaco, daughter of Grace Kelly and Rainier Louis Henri Maxence Bertrand Grimaldi, otherwise known as Rainer III of Monaco. While the famous couple (both of them have since died: Grace Kelly in the infamous 1982 car crash and Rainier in 2005) also hhad two other children, Albert II and Princess Caroline, their mother always called Stéphanie lovingly her 'Wild Child'. And perhaps rightly so, she has been a swimwear designer and fashion model, but in the 80s she was widely known for her youthful attempts to make it big in the music industry.
In February 1986, Stéphanie self produced and released her first single with the French label 'Carrere', under the production of Yves Roze. The song 'Ouragan (Hurricane) and its English version 'Irresistible' quickly reached the international Top10, selling more than 2 million copies.
In September, she released a full album called Besoin reportedly selling more than 1.5 million copies (also released as Stéphanie in some countries) with eight new songs, including 'Flash' (in French; its English version 'One Love To Give'), which was released as a single and reached top spots all over Europe.

Cock Robin - their 4 greatest hits (1985 - 1987)

Named after a 17th century story titled 'The Marriage of Cock Robin and Jenny Wren', Peter Kingsbery, Anna LaCazio, Clive Wright and Lou Molino III formed the band in California in 1982 and were signed to CBS Records.
Cock Robin's 1985 self-titled debut album was largely ignored in their native country, as with the majority of their output, but it was an overnight success in Europe, where the singles 'When Your Heart Is Weak' and 'The Promise You Made' became big hits. 'When Your Heart Is Weak' was the band's only chart single in the US. It also became a radio favorite in South Africa.
Two years later the band, reduced from the original quartet to the duo of Peter Kingsbery and Anna LaCazio, released a second album, After Here Through Midland. As with their debut, Cock Robin's second album attracted much attention in continental Europe, and also scored hits with the singles 'Just Around the Corner' and 'The Biggest Fool of All'.
In 1989, they released a their third album, First Love/Last Rites, and, as with their previous releases, the LP fared well in mainland Europe, but, due to poor management and promotion, failed to make an impact in the USA. The duo went their separate ways shortly after the release of the album and a European Tour, with Kingsbery releasing a string of solo projects in France, most notably a hit single 'Only the Very Best', recorded for the Michel Berger & Luc Plamandon concept musical album 'Tycoon', with English lyrics by Tim Rice in 1992. Anna LaCazio recorded her own solo album Eat Life circa 1992-93 but it was only officially released in its entirety for download in 2009.
The duo reformed in 2006, releasing another two albums, mainly noted in France.

Lyrics:

What's the matter with the way we look?
Surely it's not the end
I only meant to make my motions clear
You worry too much if it's understood
Should we be seen as friends?
Seems like a real good beginning right here

'Cause when your heart is weak
I'm gonna pick the lock on it
My fingertips won't fail me
No matter what you do
The love you cannot see yet
Is about to witness a dawning
And you can twist and turn
But you won't get loose

Better forget getting rid of me
I don't see how you can
You put me off and I will hunt you
down...again
I'm mighty patient when I have to be
You have given me that
Still I look forward to the day you let me in
'Cause when your heart is weak
I'm gonna pick the lock on it
My fingertips won't fail me
No matter what you do
The love you cannot see yet
Is about to witness a dawning
And you can twist and turn
But you won't get loose
I'm gonna prove myself worthy
No more just hanging on
Without a prayer of a chance
I'm gonna come without warning
when your defenses are down and you're in
a desperate need
Oh, I bet you you then, you'll welcome me...
Your ol' companion
Your ol' companion
Remember baby,
'Cause when your heart is weak
I'm gonna pick the the lock on it
And you can twist and turn
But you won't get, you won't get
No you won't get loose
Oh no

Lyrics:

If I laid down my love
To come to your defense
Would you worry for me
With a pain in your chest?
Could I rely on your faith to be strong
To picked me back up and to push me along?
Tell me
You'll be there in my hour of need
You won't turn me away
Help me out of the life I lead
Remember the promise you made
Remember the promise you made
If I gave you my soul
For a piece of your mind
Would you carry me with you
To the far edge of time?
Could you understand if you found me untrue
Would we become one, or divided in two
Please tell me
You'll be there in my hour of need
You won't turn me away
Help me out of the life I lead
Remember the promise you made
Remember the promise you made
Could I rely on your faith to be strong
To pick me back up and to push me along
Please tell me
You'll be there in my hour of need
You won't turn me away
Help me out of the life I lead
Remember the promise you made
Remember the promise you made

Cock Robin - Just Around The Corner (1987)
CH#6, SWE#12, DE#16, IT#17, FR'18, NL#19, AT#28



Lyrics:

Come ease my mind
For my prayers have not been answered in a long time

Things aren't quite as they seem inside my domain
You can't know about everything, only pleasure and pain
You wonder why I come here with head to my hands
Where else can I be cured and the king of your mansion
A thorn in your side
And a child to protect that claims he's free

Just around the corner, half a mile to heaven
Strong enough to hold you, starved for some affection
Darling come quickly, come ease my mind
For my prayers have not been answered in a long time

I've already made my bed, like it or not
As long as there's no regrets, I'll be here when the ride stops
These comforts to me
And these crosses to bear with which we live

Just around the corner, half a mile to heaven
Strong enough to hold you, starved for some affection
Baby, I can't drag you into this mess

I'm the thorn in your side and the child to protect
Yes, yes I'm

Just around the comer, half a mile to heaven
Strong enough to hold you, starved for some affection
Darling come quickly, come ease my worried mind
For my prayers have not been answered in a long time

Just around the comer
Strong enough to hold you
Half a mile to heaven
Just around the comer

Cock Robin - The Biggest Fool Of All
FR#47, DE#50



Lyrics:

My excuse is only human
Like any animal that breathes
Just to find a scent that's soothing
I give you power over me
I'm more weak than strong
And not a stranger to a fall
But I won't leave you till I turn to find you gone
I'm the biggest fool of all
But, I'm the biggest fool of all
There's no path of least resistance
It's a fable that you've heard
Any love that lacks conviction
Is gonna grovel in the dirt, yes it is
God this road is long
And surrounded by a wall
But I won't leave you till I turn to find you gone
I'm the biggest fool of all
I'm the biggest fool of all
I'm the biggest fool of all
Foolish as the prisoner
That listens for the jangling keys
And smart enough to know
That it's crazy I should run
When you've got no claim on me
So before your panic taunts you
To make relations disappear
You could help to ease my conscience
If just for once by standing here
I'm more weak than strong
And surrounded by a wall
But I won't leave you till I turn to find you
But I won't leave you till I turn to find you
But I won't leave you till I turn to find you
But I won't leave you till I turn to find you gone
I'm the biggest fool of all
Oh, yes I am
I'm the biggest fool of all
Oh yeah
I'm the biggest fool of all
Oh, I am
I'm the biggest fool of all
Oh, I am
I'm the biggest fool of all

Gazebo - I Like Chopin & Lunatic (1983)

Paul Mazzolini, a.k.a. Gazebo, was born 1960 in Beirut, Lebanon, son of an Italian diplomat and an American singer, learned to play the guitar aged 10 to impress a German girl in his class. As a rather cosmopolitan teenager Gazebo began a career in a variety of jazz, rock and punk bands before meeting Rome-based producer Paul Micioni. The first release, Masterpiece, was a minor hit in 1982.
A year later, he branded his name in chart history with his track 'I Like Chopin'. The release sold 8 millions copies worldwide. 'I Like Chopin' was produced by Pierluigi Giombini and is generally regarded as one of the most significant Italo-Disco tracks of the mid-80s. The piano motif is not a Chopin composition - the entire song was composed by Pierluigi. The video was shot in a house somewhere in Essex. Can you spot which one it is?
The follow-up song 'Lunatic' and the eponymous album also entered the Top 20 across continental Europe.
Since then he has released more albums, but apart from 'Tears for Galileo' in 2006, which achieved constant radio airplay on Italian RAI Radio2 and peaked at #1 in the Euro dance charts, he lives mostly off his 80s success.
Good God, did I have a crush on him back then...

There ain't no reason you and me should be alone tonight
Yeah baby, tonight, yeah baby
I got a reason that you
Who should take me home tonight

I need a man that thinks it's right when it's all wrong tonight
Yeah baby, tonight, yeah baby
Right on the limb is where we know
We both belong tonight

It's hard to feel the rush
To brush the dangerous
I'm gonna run right to, to the edge with you
Where we can both fall far in love

I'm on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment of truth
Out on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment with you

I'm on the edge, the edge, the edge
The edge, the edge, the edge
I'm on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment with you
I'm on the edge with you

Another shot before we kiss the other side
Tonight, yeah baby, tonight, yeah baby
I'm on the edge of something final
We call life tonight, alright, alright

Put on your shades 'cause I'll be dancing in the flames
Tonight, yeah baby, tonight, yeah baby
It isn't hell if everybody knows my name
Tonight, alright, alright

It's hard to feel the rush
To brush the dangerous
I'm gonna run right to, to the edge with you
Where we can both fall far in love

I'm on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment of truth
Out on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment with you

I'm on the edge, the edge, the edge
The edge, the edge, the edge, the edge
I'm on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment with you
I'm on the edge with you

Lyrics:

I'm in a spin, I'm cavin' in
I'm livin' in a daydream
When I saw you, your smile shown thru
And touched me like a sun beam

I'm inside out, I'm crazy about
The way you make my heart feel
I'm head over heels
I'm falling more each day

How did you know?
Been waitin' to touch you and tell you how I feel
I'm walking on clouds, I'm spellbound about you
I can't believe your real

How did you know?
Been thinking about you
And dreaming of your kiss
How did you know? How did you know?

I'm in a spin, I'm caving in
I'm living in a daydream
When I saw you, your smile shown thru
And touched me like a sun beam

I'm inside out, I'm crazy about
The way you make my heart feel
I'm head over heels
I'm falling more each day

How did you know?
Been waiting to touch you and tell you how I feel
I'm walking on clouds, I'm spellbound about you
I can't believe your real

How did you know?
Been thinking about you
And dreaming of your kiss
How did you know? How did you know?

Walking on clouds, thinking about you and
Walking on clouds, thinking about you and
Walking on clouds, can't believe your real
Walking on clouds

How did you know?
Been waiting to touch you and tell you how I feel
I'm walking on clouds, I'm spellbound about you
I can't believe your real

How did you know?
Been thinking about you
And dreamin' of your kiss
How did you know? How did you know?

Matt Cardle - It's Only Love - 7th Heaven 7" (2012)


Lyrics:

It's a kick in the head so close your eyes
Some say it's dead, but we're alive
And it has no use anymore

It's a losing game that I won't play
I know full well, it isn't here to stay
It has no use anymore

Just get a hold of your heart and set it on fire
You don't need it now, you'll be alright cause

Did you think it would hold you?
Did you think it would carry you?
Did you think it would save you?
Did you think it would see you through?
It's only love, it's only love

Don't let it push you to your knees
You don't have to fall, lean on me
It has no use anymore

Just get a hold of your heart and set it on fire
You don't need it now, you'll be alright 'cause

Did you think it would hold you?
Did you think it would carry you?
Did you think it would save you?
Did you think it would see you through?
It's only love, it's only love

Did you think it would hold you?
Did you think it would carry you?
Did you think it would save you?
Did you think it would see you through?
It's only love, it's only love

It won't hold you
It won't carry you
It won't save you
It won't see you through
It's only love, it's only love

Did you think it would hold you?
Did you think it would carry you?
Did you think it would save you?
Did you think it would see you through?
It's only love, it's only love

It won't hold you
It won't carry you
It won't save you
It won't see you through
It's only love, it's only love

Lyrics:

I I know I shouldn't be doing this
Why can't I stop?
Butterfly, blood rush, everything's telling me to run
But I'm not

You only regret what you don't do
Why don't we do what we want to now
Don't give me time to back out

Cause I don't wanna think about waking up, making up lies
Trying to pretend that we didn't do what we're doing
I don't wanna think about
Real life, not tonight
I don't wanna think about anyone, anything, anyway
If there's a chance we'll break
I wanna smash into pieces
Let's make a big mistake
But I don't wanna think about it
I don't wanna think about it

My heart beats my head
And I'm letting it take me over
I gotta keep going can't stop can't sleep
Cause tomorrow I'll be sober

You only regret what you don't do
Why don't we do what we want to now
Don't give me time to back out

Cause I don't wanna think about waking up, making up lies
Trying to pretend that we didn't do what we're doing
I don't wanna think about
Real life, not tonight
I don't wanna think about anyone, anything, anyway
If there's a chance we'll break
I wanna smash into pieces
Let's make a big mistake
But I don't wanna think about it
I don't wanna think about it

Only regret the things that you don't do
Do do do what you want to
Only regret the things that you don't do
Do do do what you want to

I wanna feel something I've never felt before
And I don't care if it hurts, it's worth it, yeah
I wanna be someone I've never been before
So I'm gonna run and I'm gonna close my eyes
I'm gonna jump into the fire

Cause I don't wanna think about waking up, making up lies
Trying to pretend we didn't do what we're doing
I don't wanna think about
Real life, not tonight
I don't wanna think about anyone, anything, anyway
If there's a chance we'll break
I wanna smash into pieces
Let's make a big mistake
But I don't wanna think about it
I don't wanna think about it

Only regret the things that you don't do
Do do do what you want to
Only regret the things that you don't do
Do do
Let's do what we want to

Dirty Old Ann - Turn Me On (2006)

Legendary James Wiltshire, one half of the Freemasons, musical technician Vincent Morrisey of the Outsiders and producer Ann Jones, whose cleanliness (of lack thereof ;-) inspired the name of this project, in 2006 took on Kathy Brown's original of 1994 and delivered a track that can already comfortably count itself as a classic on the dance floor. This has been a major tune at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern all those years ago.

Peyton - A Higher Place (2005)
UK#11


Lyrics:

People walking all around,
with their faces on the ground,
sometimes it seems life aint worth giving,
just flying high up out the door
just when you think you can't take no more
you wanna lay down and just give in

Here's what ya gotta do
lift your head up high
move your body to the rhythms of a bluer sky
put this old world behind you where it belongs
close your eyes and come with me
let's sing a different song

We're moving on up
to a higher place
where the people sing and dance
under amazing grace
just one more time
to see the sun start to shine
and your
hands up in the air
it'll take you higher

your life girl sounds the same
is life just someone elses game
is there a place beyond confusion
does it mean we do not know
some place that we are meant to go
or is it just one more delusion

Here's what ya gotta do
lift your head up high
move your body to the rhythms of a bluer sky
put this old world behind you where it belongs
change is coming don't you worry
now it wont be long

We're moving on up
to a higher place
where the people sing and dance
under amazing grace
just one more time
to see the sun start to shine
and your
hands up in the air
it'll take you higher

We're moving on up
to a higher place
where the people sing and dance
under amazing grace
just one more time
to see the sun start to shine
and your
hands up in the air
it'll take you higher

After all that's said and done
after war is waged in one
there is one thing left to believe in
If you can rise up from your bed
shake off the shackles clear your head
this life is yours and it's for living

Here's what we gotta do
lift our heads up high
move our bodys to the rhythms of a bluer sky
put this old world behind us where it belongs
everybody come with me and start to sing my song

We're moving on up
to a higher place
where the people sing and dance
under amazing grace
just one more time
to see the sun start to shine
and your
hands up in the air
it'll take you higher

We're moving on up
to a higher place
where the people sing and dance
under amazing grace
just one more time
to see the sun start to shine
and your
hands up in the air
it'll take you higher

We're moving on up
(moving on up, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.....)
Just one more time
(Just one more time)
We're moving on up
(We're moving on up, yeah, yeah, yeah.....)
moving on, moving on, moving on, moving on up
Just one more time
Just one more time,
I'm gonna spread my wings and take to the sky

We're moving on up
to a higher place
where the people sing and dance
under amazing grace
just one more time
to see the sun start to shine
and your
hands up in the air
it'll take you higher

We're moving on up
to a higher place
where the people sing and dance
under amazing grace
just one more time
to see the sun start to shine
and your
hands up in the air
it'll take you higher

M-Box feat. Susie Ledge - When You're Gone (2004)

Susie Ledge, also known as Susie Atherton or simply Susie, is a singer-songwriter and guitarist from South East London. Renown for her evocative lyrics and emotive yet chilled out style, she creates songs that are soothing to the ear and vivid for the imagination. Susie's music has the unusual ability of being instantly recognisable.

As one half of Tin Tin Out, Darren Stokes dominated 90's dancefloors with anthems like 'Strings For Yasmin' and 'Always (Something There To Remind Me)'. He also produced career-launching records for The Corrs and Emma Bunton, whilst finding the time to remix everybody from Sting to Whitney Houston. M-Box partner Philip Larsen scooped a Grammy in 2004 for his work on Kylie's 'Fever' album and as one half of Manhattan Clique, which produced Moby's first ever No.1 record 'Slipping Away' with Mylene Farmer. Working together as M-Box, the boys turned their attention to songstress Susie Ledge, after a major performance at Glastonbury that year. Together, they released 'When You're Gone', which became an instant hit in Ibiza. Since then, Susie has teamed up in several other projects, managing to emulate her first success, capturing the clubbing crowds.

Serge Devant - Addicted (2009) and No Good (2009)

Serge Devant was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, but grew up in the US. His music is stylistically diverse and transcends the boundaries of the genre, adding up to a hard-hitting, riveting but classically beautiful sound.
Not very long after his humble beginnings studying classical music in the former Soviet Union, Serge’s early electronic career is already marked with the achievements of a seasoned veteran.
Serge Devant’s first single 'Transparent' in 2005 is recorded with trance diva Jan Johnston. But his career progression took dizzy heights in 2008, when Coca-Cola has brought Serge on board with an exclusive track 'Peace on Earth' for the Olympics in Beijing and clothing maker Armani Exchange had invited him to represent the brand. Serge Devant hit the coveted DJ Mag Top 100 List and became the youngest resident DJ at New York’s legendary Crobar.
DJ Tiësto names him one of his top 5 favorite DJ’s. Tiësto and many of the worlds DJ elite personally request Serge to share the stage while Serge himself holds residencies in major U.S. cities and headlines globally. With Serge on stage, crowds witness a skillful exhibition from one of the most promising young talents in the industry today.
In 2009 he released his first album, entitled Wanderer, on which has worked with several vocalists, such as ex-iiO's Nadia Ali and Hadley Poole.
Here my favourite two tracks, but I can recommend the entire album!

Lyrics:

I let it fall, my heart
And as it fell, you rose to claim it
It was dark and I was over
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me

My hands, they're strong
But my knees were far too weak
To stand in your arms
Without falling to your feet

But there's a side to you that I never knew, never knew
All the things you'd say, they were never true, never true
And the games you play, you would always win, always win

But I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Let it burn while I cry
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

When laying with you
I could stay there, close my eyes
Feel you here, forever
You and me together, nothing is better

'Cause there's a side to you that I never knew, never knew
All the things you'd say, they were never true, never true
And the games you'd play, you would always win, always win

But I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Let it burn while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

I set fire to the rain
And I threw us into the flames
Where I felt somethin' die, 'cause I knew that
That was the last time, the last time

Sometimes I wake up by the door
Now that you've gone, must be waiting for you
Even now when it's already over
I can't help myself from looking for you

I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Let it burn while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

I set fire to the rain
And I threw us into the flames
Where I felt somethin' die
'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time, oh

Oh, no
Let it burn, oh
Let it burn
Let it burn

Adele - Skyfall - James Bond Theme (2012)


Lyrics:

This is the end
Hold your breath and count to ten
Feel the earth move and then
Hear my heart burst again

For this is the end
I've drowned and dreamed this moment
So overdue, I owe them
Swept away, I'm stolen

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
At skyfall

Skyfall is where we start
A thousand miles and poles apart
When worlds collide, and days are dark
You may have my number, you can take my name
But you'll never have my heart

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
At skyfall

Where you go I go,
What you see I see
I know I'll never be me, without the security
Are your loving arms
Keeping me from harm
Put your hand in my hand
And we'll stand

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
At skyfall

Let the sky fall
We will stand tall
At skyfall

Lyrics:

Right in the night
Right in the night
Right in the night you'll find
That if you want to fall in love you'll fall in love

Right in the night
Right in the night sweet thing is what you'll get
When you fall in love, you fall in love

Fall in love with music, fall in love with dance
Fall in love with anything that makes you want romance
Make a little softer on the way that you go
Just think that everything you touch could turn to gold

Fall in love with everything that you would love to love
You know that laughter is a kind form to wake you up
So don't make me feel unpleasant like you do
You know that everything will fall right back on you

So fall in love with everything, fall in love with life
Forget about your troubles and be a little nice
You will not see me if you don't want to look
Just come and get me in my big big bed of love
Big big bed of love

Right in the night
Right in the night
Right in the night you'll find
That if you want to fall in love you'll fall in love

Right in the night
Right in the night sweet thing is what you'll get
When you fall in love, you fall in love

So fall in love with stories if fairy tales are true
Innocence is part of what you're losin' with your youth
Show a little confidence, show a little class
Don't kiss the past, the past ain't gonna last

Just fall in love with passion, fall in love with lust
Fall in love with all the things you're always dreaming of
Fall in love with music and you will get by

Right in the night
Right in the night
Right in the night you'll find
That if you want to fall in love you'll fall in love

Right in the night
Right in the night sweet thing is what you'll get
When you fall in love, you'll fall in love

Cindy Lauper - Shine - Tracy Young Remix (2001)

There is much more to Cynthia Ann Stephanie Lauper (born 1953 in New York) than just 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun', although that is probably the song she will be remembered forever more.
Six days before her 48th birthday she performed a song at the AIDS Benefit in Vienna's City Hall that would go on to be remixed by several people, including Victor Calderone and Tracy Young. The latter track is the one that hit the clubs; and hit me in particular in a Club in Miami Beach, just yards from Miss Lauper's Florida residence.
The remix also features in one episode of the climactic fifth season of the US version of Queer as Folk, in which Cindy appeared as herself to perform at the show's 'Babylon' gay club.
The first official release of the song appeared on the Shine E.P., a 2002 mini album released to counteract heavy pirating of the material on the then-shelved full length album. The album itself, however, was not released in the U.S., before the official release of the album -exclusively in Japan - a single was released for the song, in a variety of formats. This limited edition was only released in the United States and could only be ordered online. The official name of the single is 'Shine Remixes'.

Lyrics:

Shine I'll stand by you
Don't try and push me away
'cause I'm just gonna stay
You can shine I won't deny you
And don't be afraid it'll all be ok

Do you know my name
Well I ain't gonna take
that big time line
won't be beat by a lie
Gonna call out to these embers
waiting to ignite
Gonna pull you up
By your love, by your love
and tell you

Shine I'll stand by you...

I can see the frown you wear
All around like some faded crown
Like a watch over wound
Gonna call down to this diamond
buried underground
Gonna pull you up
by your love, by your love
and tell you

When it's said and done
What you need will come
and time won't let me
Let you let me waste it this time
shine...

Lyrics:

Suicide blonde, suicide blonde
Suicide blonde, suicide blonde
Suicide blonde was the colour of her hair
Like a cheap distraction
For a new affair
She knew it would finish
Before it began
Something tells me you lost the plan

You want to make her
Suicide Blonde
Love devastation
Suicide Blonde

You want to make her
Suicide Blonde
Love devastation
Suicide Blonde

She stripped to the beat
But her clothes stay on
White light everywhere
But you can't see a thing
Such a squeeze
A mad, sad moment
Glory to you, glory to you, take me there

Got some revelation put into your hands
Save you from your misery
Like rain across the land
Don't you see
The colour of deception
Turning your world around again

You want to make her
Suicide Blonde
Love devastation
Suicide Blonde

You want to make her
Suicide Blonde
Love devastation
Suicide Blonde

Kristine W - Walk Away (2007)


The 12 inch...


The 7 inch...

Lyrics:

You tell me that I was created for you
That nobody else makes you feel like I do
And I want to believe that it's true
When you make all of these promises

Fabulous plans, you fill me with hope
Painting pictures so grand
But why after all of this time
Don't I know where I stand

Don't you know
What you stand to loose
If you don't
Then you're still confused?

Walk away
If you're not here to stay
'Cause I care about myself too much
And I've heard enough

Walk away
'Cause I'm not here to play
And if you're not really free to love
If you don't need my love
Then turn and walk away

You asked for my heart
And I gave you much more
Unselfish devotion
And emotion so pure

But how can you still be unsure
Well, if I'm not the one
Then stop wasting my time

Give back the part of the heart
That was mine
But know that another love like me
You'll never find

Don't you know
What you stand to lose
If you don't
Then you still can't choose?

Walk away
If you're not here to stay
'Cause I care about myself too much
And I've heard enough

Walk away
'Cause I'm not here to play
And if you're not really free to love
If you don't need my love
Then turn and walk away

I know that I will find someone who does
Someone who loves me just because
But if that would be too much
For you, then walk away

Walk away, walk away, walk away
Then walk away, then walk away, then walk away
Then turn and walk away

If you're not here to stay
'Cause I care about myself too much
And I've heard enough

Walk away
'Cause I'm not here to play
And if you're not really free to love
If you don't need my love
Then turn and walk away
Turn and walk away

Ofra Haza - I'm Nin Alu (1988)

You may remember it from 1988 when Ofra Haza took Europe by storm with it - it stayed 9 weeks at DE#1 in the summer that year... But it dates back much further than this: 'Im Nin'alu' (אם ננעלו) is a Hebrew poem by Shalom Shabazi (שלום שבזי) and was written in the 17th century, when he was a well-respected Rabbi in what is now the state of Yemen.
The poem starts 'Im nin'alu daltei n'divim - daltei marom lo nin'alu. El Chaiiiiiii....' (If the doors of the wealthy are locked, the doors of Heaven will never be locked. The living God.)
Ofra Haza first sang this song with the Shechunat Hatikva Workshop Theatre, appearing on IBA's General Television in 1978. The remixed version of the song, produced by Izhar Ashdot, is the one that hit the charts ten years later. The single sold some three million copies worldwide, making it one of the first World Music recordings to cross over to mainstream Pop. Even though Ofra's version of the song shows her own interpretation, and its presentation was modern and popular, it still fits in with the Yemenite tradition that she represented.
The original version was included on the 1984 album Yemenite Songs, also known as Fifty Gates of Wisdom. The remixed version was part of her international debut Shaday.
In 1997 she re-recorded the track for her album Ofra Haza, produced by Frank Peterson of Enigma and Gregorian.

Since then, the track has been covered - and most of all sampled - endless times: Rap duo Eric B. & Rakim used it in their single 'Paid In Full', Snoop Dogg used the same sample on his remake of 'Paid In Full' titled 'Paper'd Up'. Canadian band Delerium sampled the lyrics in their song 'Hidden Mask' from their 1989 album Faces, Forms & Illusions.
American Rap group Public Enemy also sampled the opening few seconds of the song (which are a cappella) on the track 'Can't Truss It', featured on the 1991 album Apocalypse '91...The Enemy Strikes Black. The song features very briefly as background music in a restaurant at the beginning of the 2000 film American Psycho. In 1998 Swedish DJ team C&N Project included a sample of the opening line Im nin'alu on their single 'The Queen of Tel Aviv', which was credited to C&N Project Feat. Ofra Haza. Israeli singer Michal Cohen performs 'Im Nin'alu' on La Kahena (2005) by DJ Cheb i Sabbah. Part of the song appears in Madonna's song "Isaac" from her 2005 album Confessions on a Dance Floor (2005). Im Nin'alu is the opening track on Eliyahu & The Qadim Ensemble's album Eastern Wind (2009) with vocals by Rachel Valfer.
And - in 2009 Panjabi MC remixed this song on his album named Indian Timing.

Ofra Haza was born the youngest of nine children in the poor Tel Aviv neighborhood of Hatikvah. Inspired by a love of her Yemeni Jewish culture, the appeal of her musical art quickly spread to a wider Middle Eastern audience, somehow bridging the divide between Israel and the Arab countries. As her career progressed, the multi-lingual Haza was able to switch between traditional and more commercial singing styles without jeopardizing her credibility. The music, too, fused elements of Eastern and Western instrumentation, orchestration and dance-beat.
Ofra Haza died on 23 February 2000 at the age of 42, of AIDS-related pneumonia. While the fact of her HIV infection is now generally acknowledged, the decision by the major Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz to report about it shortly after her death caused controversy in Israel.

English Translation:

If there be no mercy left in the world,
The doors of heaven will never be barred.
The Creator reigns supreme, and is higher
than the angels
All, in His spirit, will rise

By His nearness, His life-giving breath
flows through them.
And they glory in His name
From the moment of genesis,
His creations grow,
Captivating and more beautiful.

The wheel in his circle thunders
Acclaiming His Holy name
Clothed in the glory of His radiance,
The six-winged cherubs surround Him,
Whirling in His honor
And with their free wings sweetly sing,
Together, in unison
