    Exit Eden

    I remember years ago
    Someone told me I should take
    Caution when it comes to love, I did

    And you were strong and I was not
    My illusion, my mistake
    I was careless, I forgot, I did

    And now when all is done
    There is nothing to say
    You have gone and so effortlessly
    You have won
    You can go ahead tell them

    Tell them all I know now
    Shout it from the roof tops
    Write it on the sky line
    All we had is gone now

    Tell them I was happy
    And my heart is broken
    All my scars are open
    Tell them what I hoped would be

    Impossible
    Impossible
    Impossible
    Impossible

    Falling out of love is hard
    Falling for betrayal is worse
    Broken trust and broken hearts
    I know

    Thinking all you need is there
    Building faith on love and words
    Empty promises will wear
    I know

    And now when all is done
    There is nothing to…
    It is 1:30 AM rocking at 12000RMS think people next door would be a bit more appreciative

    Elysion

    Why have ourselves abandoned us
    Why they no more belong to us
    Cries in the sky pray to believe
    My heart and soul will never forgive

    We are all being used
    Our lives have been abused
    Still no one resists
    I guess
    There's nothing to lose
    I am no longer confused
    You're killing my dreams

    My heart cries out for the touch I will never have
    Before my eyes you've burnt everything I loved
    I'm on the edge and you're forcing me not to fall
    You'll never see me crawl
    It is 12:43 AM people next door stopped their party... well i am starting mine

    Revenge best served with 12000RMS ... ... ...

    is so much fun

    peace is a state of mind

    [QUOTE=Blurock;154156]Bubble Gum music was popular in the late 60's and early 70's, before disco came to spoil music forever.
    It was played at parties and had a positive "let's dance" feel, although most of it was factory produced and not serious music.
    The term Bubblegum" related to "listen to it once or twice and then discard it". (chew it and spit it out). Very much like modern hip-hop that has no musical value and all sounds the same. One of the most successful numbers was Sugar Sugar by the Archies, a fictional band (like the Monkees) who was created in a studio for TV audiences.

    Sugar, ah honey honey
    You are my candy girl
    And you got me wanting you
    Honey, ah sugar sugar
    You are my candy girl
    And you've got me wanting you
    I just can't believe the loveliness of loving you
    (I just can't believe it's true)
    I just can't believe the one to love this feeling to
    (I just can't believe it's true)

    Ah honey, ah sugar sugar
    You are my candy girl
    And you've got me wanting you
    When I kissed you, girl, I knew how sweet a kiss could be
    (I know how sweet a kiss can be)
    Like the summer sunshine pour your sweetness over me

    Oh sugar, pour a little sugar on it honey
    Pour a little sugar on it baby
    I'm gonna make your life so sweet, yeah yeah yeah

    Between January and march of 2018, I visited a 'twilight cafe,' of sort, and had some phenomenal experiences there..

    Sometimes I get so alone
    There's only one place I can think of to go
    It's where the beat is strong, strong, strong
    Melodies drifting I can sing my song
    Walk down the high street
    I'm on the neon lights
    And pretty soon I'll find my way
    To the twilight cafea
    The music grabs me, spins me round and around
    My spirit soars, no longer smashed to the ground
    The cares and worries of a busy day
    Just slide across me as I start to play
    Walk down the high street
    I'm on the neon lights
    And pretty soon I'll find my way
    To the twilight cafe
    The beat gets stronger in a mystical way
    ??? around me as I dance and sway
    My body feels as if my heart's on fire
    Enfolds my brain with a deep desire
    Walk down the high street
    I'm on the…

    When the shades are drawn
    And the light of the moon is banned
    And the stars up above
    Walk the heavens hand in hand
    There's a shady place
    At the end of the working day
    Where young lovers go
    And this hot little trio plays
    That's where we meet
    That's where we meet
    Me and you rendezvous
    In the club at the end of the street
    Oh, where we meet
    Oh, where we meet
    Me and you rendezvous
    In the club at the end of the street
    From the alleyways
    Where the catwalks gently sway
    You hear the sound of Otis
    And the voice of Marvin Gaye
    In this smoky room
    There's a jukebox, plays all night
    And we can dance real close
    Beneath the pulse of a neon light
    That's where we meet
    That's where we meet
    Me and you rendezvous
    In the club at the end of the street
    Oh, where we meet
    Oh, where we meet
    Me

    Wikipedia

    Bubblegum pop (also known as bubblegum music or simply bubblegum) is a genre of music with an upbeat sound contrived and marketed to appeal to pre-teens and teenagers, which may be produced in an assembly-line process, driven by producers and often using unknown singers. Bubblegum's classic period ran from 1967 to 1972.[1] A second wave of bubblegum began two years later and ran until 1977 when disco took over.

    The genre was predominantly a singles phenomenon rather than an album-oriented one. Acts were typically manufactured in the studio using session musicians, and most bubblegum pop groups were one-hit wonders.[2] Among the best-known acts of bubblegum's golden era are 1910 Fruitgum Company (a clear exception to the one-hit wonder rule), the Lemon Pipers ("Green Tambourine", credited as being the first bubblegum pop chart-topper[1]), the Ohio Express ("Yummy Yummy Yummy"), and the Archies, an animated group which had the most successful bubblegum song with "Sugar, Sugar", Billboard Magazine's No. 1 single for 1969. Singer Tommy Roe also scored several hits during the era, including the 1969 number one hit "Dizzy".

    The Beatles: I wanna hold your hand:1963: Lyrics and video

    This is literally a text-book example: I know as I have read the textbook! Shout: The true story of the Beatles: Philip Norman (Pan Books 1981) Pages 200, 203, 210, 211, 215, 215, 222, 263 and 445.
    In brief, EMI had very high expectations for the second Beatles album, which was recorded by George Martin, entitled:- “With the Beatles”;[1] The album cover was as much part of the strategy as was the songs themselves.[2] The album was intended to be launched before Christmas of 1963.[3] The result, manic of course, 'Beatle mania'!

    [4]


    Oh yeah, I'll tell you somethin
    I think you'll understand
    When I'll say that something
    I wanna hold your hand
    I wanna hold your hand
    I wanna hold your hand
    Oh please, say to me
    You'll let me be your man
    And please, say to me
    You'll let me hold your hand
    I'll let me hold your hand
    I wanna hold your hand
    And when I touch you I feel happy
    Inside
    It's such a feeling that my love
    I can't hide
    I can't hide
    I can't hide
    Yeah, you've got that something
    I think you'll understand
    When I'll say that something

    I wanna hold your hand

    The Beatles were not a Bubblegum band as they reformed pop music and revolutionised rock music since the early 60's. They were musical pioneers who were followed by just about everyone.

    Excellence is not a skill; its an attitude...

    Nina Simone: My Baby Just Cares For Me 1957:Lyrics and video



    My baby don't care for shows
    My baby don't care for clothes
    My baby just cares for me
    My baby don't care for cars and races
    My baby don't care for high-tone places

    Liz Taylor is not his style
    And even Lana Turner's smile
    Is somethin' he can't see
    My baby don't care who knows
    My baby just cares for me

    Baby, my baby don't care for shows
    And he don't even care for clothes
    He cares for me
    My baby don't care
    For cars and races
    My baby don't care for
    He don't care for high-tone places

    Liz Taylor is not his style
    And even Liberace's smile
    Is something he can't see
    Is something he can't see
    I wonder what's wrong with baby
    My baby just cares for
    My baby just cares for
    My baby just cares for me

    [Original lyrics]

    My baby don't care for shows
    My baby don't care for clothes
    My baby just cares for me
    My baby don't care for cars and races
    My baby don't care for high-tone places

    Liz Taylor is not his style
    And even Lana Turner's smile
    is somethin' he can't see

    My baby don't care who knows it
    My baby just cares for me

    My baby don't care for shows
    And he don't even care for clothes
    My baby just cares for me

    My baby don't care for cars and races
    My baby don't care for
    he don't care for high-tone places

    I wonder what's wrong with baby
    My baby just cares for
    Just says his prayers for
    My baby just cares for me

    Friday 6th March 2020 saw “My Girl,” have its 55th anniversary! Phenomenal song for a phenomenal woman.





    I've got sunshine on a cloudy day
    When it's cold outside I've got the month of May
    Well I guess you'd say
    What can make me feel this way?
    My girl (my girl, my girl)
    Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl)
    I've got so much honey the bees envy me
    I've got a sweeter song than the birds in the trees
    Well I guess you'd say
    What can make me feel this way?
    My girl (my girl, my girl)
    Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl ooh)
    Hey hey hey
    Hey hey hey
    Ooh yeah
    I don't need no money, fortune, or fame (ooh hey hey hey)
    I've got all the riches baby one man can claim (oh yes I do)

    I think that the 80’s was the generation where “Top of the Pops,’ thrived. Personally, I scrutinised the resemblance between the original music video and the ‘Top of the Pops,’ performance.

    Bubble-gum pop is feel good music that focuses on an act in a music video. This includes a host of things like the song itself, the choreography of the performance, the facial expressions the artist employed, the way the artist brings the song to life on stage and importantly the resemblance between the original music video and the ‘Top of the Pops,’ performance. If you wanted tongue and cheek, 80’s bubble-gum pop is filled with tongue and cheek.

    “Pop music is eclectic, and often borrows elements from other styles such as urban, dance, rock, Latin, and country; nonetheless, there are core elements that define pop music. Identifying factors include generally short to medium-length songs written in a basic format (often the verse-chorus structure) as well as the common employment of repeated choruses, melodic tunes, and hooks.”[1]
    To illustrate, I’ll borrow Kylie Minogue’s “Wouldn’t change a thing- 1989.” The correlation between the original video and the ‘Top of the pops,’ performance is simply remarkable.

    In the 80’s Kylie Minogue had a wholesome, innocent predisposition. Innuendo was used a great deal and facial expressions were extremely important in her videos and live performances.

    "If I had to do it all again
    I wouldn't change a single thing"

    Dance represents humankind’s relationship to the oldest art.[1] Dance is a primary human activity, humankind centuries ago, having satisfied basic biogenic and psychogenic needs expressed emotions through movement which manifested in dance.[2]

    Some PHENOMENAL lyrics....

    Some people don't understandWhat I see in you
    If only they knew
    They think my head's in the sand

    They'll never see
    The best side of you
    Is my heart ruling my mind
    Maybe I'm not right every time
    But I know I'm right about this love of mine

    If I had to do it all again
    I wouldn't change a single thing
    There's no questioning in my heart
    When it comes to our love
    I wouldn't change a thing

    I-I-I I wouldn't change [Repeat: x 4]
    Yeah, I've had my doubts
    My ups and downs
    On the merry-go-round
    They say my heads in the cloud

    But I'm keeping one
    Foot on the ground
    I know they say love is blind
    But he's the best thing that happened to me
    And I'm not ashamed for the world to see

    If I had to do it all again
    I wouldn't change a single thing
    There's no questioning in my heart

    When
