Song Lyric Sunday – November 3

song-lyric-sunday-1

 

 Song Lyric Sunday comes from Jim Adams.

This week the theme is Around/Down/Sideways/Up. 

I went with “You spin me Round Like A Record”

 

(    “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)” is a song by British band Dead or Alive on their 1985 album Youthquake. Released as a single in 1984, it reached no. 1 in the UK in March 1985, taking 17 weeks to get there. It was the first UK no. 1 hit by the Stock Aitken Waterman production trio. On the US Billboard Hot 100, it peaked at no. 11 on 17 August of that year. In 2015 the song was voted by the British public as the nation’s 17th favourite 1980s number one in a poll for ITV. Musician and actor Gary Kemp described the song as “one of the best white dance records of all time”.   )

Thank goodness for Wikipedia for giving me background information. I then went to the better source, my spouse the audiophile. 

If I, I get to know your name
Well I could trace your private number, baby

All I know is that to me
You look like you’re lots of fun
Open up your lovin’ arms
I want some, want some

I’ve set my sights on you
(And no one else will do)
And I, I’ve got to have my way now, baby

All I know is that to me
You look like you’re havin’ fun
Open up your lovin’ arms
Watch out, here I come

You spin me right ’round, baby
Right ’round like a record, baby
Right ’round, ’round, ’round
You spin me right ’round, baby
Right ’round like a record, baby
Right ’round, ’round, ’round

I, I got to be your friend now, baby
And I, I would like to move in just a little bit closer

All I know is that to me
You look like you’re lots of fun
Open up your lovin’ arms
Watch out, here I come

You spin me right ’round, baby
Right ’round like a record, baby
Right ’round, ’round, ’round
You spin me right ’round, baby
Right ’round like a record, baby
Right ’round, ’round, ’round

You spin me right ’round, baby
Right ’round like a record, baby
Right ’round, ’round, ’round
You spin me right ’round, baby
Right ’round like a record, baby
Right ’round, ’round, ’round

I want your love
I want your love

All I know is that to me
You look like you’re lots of fun
Open up your lovin’ arms
Watch out, here I come

You spin me right ’round, baby
Right ’round like a record, baby
Right ’round, ’round, ’round
You spin me right ’round, baby
Right ’round like a record, baby
Right ’round, ’round, ’round

You spin me right ’round, baby
Right ’round like a record, baby
Right ’round, ’round, ’round
You spin me right ’round, baby
Right ’round like a record, baby
Right ’round, ’round, ’round

You spin me right ’round, baby
Right ’round like a record, baby
Right ’round, ’round, ’round
You spin me right ’round, baby
Right ’round like a record, baby
Right ’round, ’round, ’round

You spin me right ’round, baby
Right ’round like a record, baby

I am not a big fan of watching the videos that go with music. I need to hear the music multiple times first, then as needed I watch the video. Theatrics often put me on sensory overload. I did find it interesting that this song was rereleased multiple times. The last time was to cash in on an infamous experience of the lead singer who was a contestant  on Celebrity Big Brother.
