Emotion

Favorite Line(s):
I cry me a river
That leads to your ocean
But you never see me fall apart
In the words of a broken heart
It’s just emotion
That’s taken me over
Tied up in sorrow,
Lost in my soul
But if you don’t come back
Come home to me, darling
You know that there’ll be
Nobody left in this world to hold me tight

Night Fever

Favorite Line(s):
Here I am
Prayin’ for this moment to last
Livin’ on the music so fine
Borne on the wind
Makin’ it mine
Night fever, night fever
We know how to do it
Gimme that night fever, night fever
We know how to show it
Comment(s):
This song is (IMHO) a “classic” disco tune.  My “issue” with disco music wasn’t that I didn’t like it (the music).  Generally speaking, I liked it a lot (and still do – in doses).  My problem was that disco music (/ dance style) became a super-fad while I was in the Army and I had a psychological block against memorizing moves and dancing in formation.  I had the same problem when the next “fad” was country line dancing, YMCA and Macarena.  The “interesting” thing, for me, was I enjoyed marching in formation – when we had to do it.  I just mentally objected to carrying it (acting in formation) over into the civilian part of my life.  I still do…

Jive Talkin’

Comment(s):  This is one of those bouncy ear candy songs which force you off the wall or out of your seat.  It might sound “funny”, but this Bee Gee song normally reminds me of “Silly Love Song” by Paul McCartney:  “And what’s wrong with that?

Last week I was driving home from work and decided to listen to some tunes instead of my normal “talk” radio or Giants game.
An oldie but a goodie came on: “Emotion” by the BeeGees.  The song was written by Barry Gibb, but was actually made famous by Samantha Sang (with the BeeGees singing background).  The BeeGees later covered the song on a greatest hits album.  It’s simply one of those songs which sticks in you head for days…  I’m not sure there’s a better compliment than that.
A few songs later, another old favorite of mine came on:  December ’63 (Oh What A Night) as performed by The Four Seasons.  As you can imagine, for this one, I’m cruising along singing at the top of my lungs!  Fortunately, I’m alone in the car.  🙂
I haven’t gotten around to adding many videos to the other songs on my Poems page, but as promised, I have added video at the bottom of these new additions.
As always, check out the lyrics first and then watch the video at the bottom.  Enjoy!  And don’t forget to get out and support your local arts in person…
