Eighty’s June 8, 2009

trackback

here we go again with another week of BLOG(2.5 weeks still to go before holiday! I’m quite sure that will be the next recurrent topic from now until then…). I’ve been thinking about what to post today and generally during this week and I think the time is ready for a special week, for my Giovannina. As you can read in the subject, you know what’s coming from now till Friday.

Today we start with the Spandau Ballet.

This British band is part of my adolescence, together with other bands, like Duran Duran, as I think I’ve written somewhere else on this BLOG. They come from London and their music has featured a mixture of funk, jazz, soul and synthpop. I found they got ten Top Ten singles and four Top Ten albums in the UK between 1979 and 1990. The amaziest thing I’ve found is that, while band split in 1990, they announced their reunion in 2009. (Gio, be prepared!)

The second tape I’ve ever bought in my life is “Parade”, from Spandau Ballet. That’s why today I’m posting the song “I’ll fly for you”:

Enjoy it.

i have literally no words

Passion take the wind
and break me from this tie
we’re mortals on the earth
oh but God’s in the sky
I haven’t got a clue
I haven’t got a thing
but what I give to you
is all that I could bring
I’ll give you all my time
that’s ev ‘rything to me
you know my only crime
is this flight of fantasy

Chorus:
because I’ve nothing else here for you
and just because it’s easier than the truth
oh if there’s nothing else that I can do
I’ll fly for you

Passion take the wind
and break me from this tie
we’re mortals on the earth
oh but God’s in the sky
I haven’t got a clue
I haven’t got a thing
but what I give to you
is all that I could bring
I’ll give you all my time
that’s ev ‘rything to me
you know my only crime
is this flight of fantasy

because I’ve nothing else here for you
and just because it’s easier than the truth
oh if there’s nothing else that I can do
I’ll fly for you

I’m just an average boy
you’re more than an average girland
when you sing to me the ‘sho be doos’
you sing so well
oh don’t you know that when I’m under you
I’m overjoyed
