HUMP DAY MAGIC MUSIC VIDEO

Whitney Houston – Didn’t We Almost Have It All (Official Video)

1987

LYRICS:

Remember when we held on in the rain
The night we almost lost it
Once again we can take the night into tomorrow
Living on feelings
Touching you I feel it all again

Didn’t we almost have it all
When love was all we had worth giving?
The ride with you was worth the fall my friend
Loving you makes life worth living
Didn’t we almost have it all
The night we held on till the morning
You know you’ll never love that way again
Didn’t we almost have it all

The way you used to touch me felt so fine
We kept our hearts together down the line
A moment in the soul can last forever
Comfort and keep us
Help me bring the feeling back again

Didn’t we almost have it all
When love was all we had worth giving?
The ride with you was worth the fall my friend
Loving you makes life worth living
Didn’t we almost have it all
The night we held on till the morning
You know you’ll never love that way again
Didn’t we almost have it all

Didn’t we have the best of times
When love was young and new?
Couldn’t we reach inside and find
The world of me and you?
We’ll never lose it again
‘Cause once you know what love is
You never let it end

Didn’t we almost have it all
When love was all we had worth giving?
The ride with you was worth the fall my friend
Loving you makes life worth living

Didn’t we almost have it all
The night we held on till the morning
You know you’ll never love that way again
Didn’t we almost have it all

Whitney Houston – I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Official Video)

1987

LYRICS:

I Wanna Dance With Somebody

Clock strikes upon the hour
And the sun begins to fade
Still enough time to figure out
How to chase my blues away
I’ve done alright up ’til now
It’s the light of day that shows me how
And when the night falls, loneliness calls

Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me
Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me

I’ve been in love and lost my senses
Spinning through the town
Sooner or later, the fever ends
And I wind up feeling down
I need a man who’ll take a chance
On a love that burns hot enough to last
So when the night falls
My lonely heart calls

Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me
Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me

Somebody ooh, somebody, ooh
Somebody who loves me yeah
Somebody ooh, somebody, ooh
To hold me in his arms, oh
I need a man who’ll take a chance
On a love that burns hot enough to last
So when the night falls
My lonely heart calls

Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me
Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me

Ooh-hoo (dance)
C’mon baby (dance)
Ooh, yeah (dance)
Now get with this
Whoa-oh (dance)

Don’tcha wanna dance (dance) with me baby?
Don’tcha wanna dance (dance) with me boy?
Hey, don’tcha wanna dance (dance) with me baby?
With somebody who loves me

Don’tcha wanna dance? Say you wanna dance
Don’tcha wanna dance?
Don’tcha wanna dance? Say you wanna dance
Don’tcha wanna dance? (Dance)
Don’tcha wanna dance? Say you wanna dance, uh-huh (dance)
With somebody who loves me

(Dance)
(Dance)
(Dance) Hey baby

Queen – Under Pressure (Official Video)

CHECK OUT THESE!!!

Lyrics:

Pressure pressing down on me
Under pressure
That burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets

Bah bah bah bah bah bah
Bah bah bah bah bah bah

That’s o-kay!
It’s the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming let me out
Pray tomorrow takes me higher
Pressure on people

Do do do bah bah bah bah
O-kay
Chippin around
Kick my brains around the floor
These are the days
It never rains it pours
People on streets
People on streets

It’s the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming let me out
Pray tomorrow takes me higher
People people on streets
Turned away from it all
Like a blind man
Sat on fence but it don’t work
Keep coming up with love
But it’s so slashed and torn
Why why why?
Love love love love

Insanity laughs under pressure we’re cracking
Can’t we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can’t we give love one more chance?
Why can’t we give love give love give love?
Give love give love give love give love give love
Cause love’s such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care
For people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way
Of caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves under pressure
Under pressure pressure

The Who-Pinball Wizard

1993

 

LYRICS

Ever since I was a young boy,
I’ve played the silver ball.
From Soho down to Brighton
I must’ve played them all.
But I never seen anything like him
In any amusement hall…
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball!
He stands like a statue,
Becomes part of the machine.
Feeling all the bumpers,
Always playing clean.
He plays by intuition,
The digit counters fall.
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball!
He’s a pinball wizard.
There has to be a twist.
A pinball wizard’s got
Such a supple wrist.
How do you think he does it?
I don’t know!
What makes him so good?
He ain’t got no distractions,
Can’t hear no buzzers and bells.
Don’t see no lights a flashin’,
Plays by sense of smell,
Always has a replay,
An’ never tilts at all…
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball!
He’s a pinball wizard.
There has to be a twist.
A pinball wizard’s got
Such a supple wrist.
Even at my favorite table
He can beat my best.
His disciples lead him in
And he just does the rest.
He’s got crazy flipper fingers,
Never seen him fall…
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball!!!

Laura Branigan – Gloria (Official Music Video)

1982 GLORIA

 

LYRICS:

Gloria, you’re always on the run now
Running after somebody, you gotta get him somehow
I think you’ve got to slow down before you start to blow it
I think you’re headed for a breakdown. So, be careful not to show it

You really don’t remember, was it something that he said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?

Gloria, don’t you think you’re falling?
If everybody wants you, why isn’t anybody calling?
You don’t have to answer
Leave them hangin’ on the line
Oh-oh-oh, calling Gloria

Gloria (Gloria), I think they got your number (Gloria)
I think they got the alias (Gloria) that you’ve been living under (Gloria)
But you really don’t remember, was it something that they said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?

A-ha-ha, a-ha-ha, Gloria, how’s it gonna go down?
Will you meet him on the main line, or will you catch him on the rebound?
Will you marry for the money, take a lover in the afternoon?
Feel your innocence slipping away, don’t believe it’s comin’ back soon

And you really don’t remember, was it something that he said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?

Gloria, don’t you think you’re falling?
If everybody wants you, why isn’t anybody calling?
You don’t have to answer
Leave them hangin’ on the line
Oh-oh-oh, calling Gloria

Gloria (Gloria), I think they got your number (Gloria)
I think they got the alias (Gloria) that you’ve been living under (Gloria)
But you really don’t remember, was it something that they said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?

Heard It In A Love Song by The Marshall Tucker Band (from Carolina Dreams)

1984

 

LYRICS

I ain’t never been with a woman long enough, for my boots to get old
We’ve been together so long now they both need to be sewed
If I ever settle down you’d be my kind
And it’s a good time for me to head on down the line
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Can’t be wrong
I’m the kinda man likes to get away
Like to start dreamin’ about tomorrow today
Never said that I love you, even thought it’s so
Where’s that duffle bag of mine it’s time to go
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Can’t be wrong
I’m gona be leavin’ at the break of dawn
Wish you could come but I don’t need no woman taggin’ along
So I’ll sneak out that door couldn’t stand to see you cry
I’d stay another year if I saw a tear drop in your eye
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Can’t be wrong
I never had a damn thing but what I had
I had to leave it behind
You’re the hardest thing I ever tried to get off my mind
Always something greener on the other side of that hill
I was born a wrangler and a rambler and I guess I always will
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Can’t be wrong
