Hans Albers - La Paloma (1944)

Hans Albers - La Paloma (1944) Lyrics: Ein Wind weht von Süd und zieht mich hinaus auf See! Mein Kind, sei nicht traurig, tut auch der Abschied weh. Mein Herz geht an Bord und fort muß die Reise gehn. Dein Schmerz wird vergehn und schön wird das Wiedersehn! Mich trägt die Sehnsucht fort in die blaue Ferne. Unter mir Meer und über mir Nacht und Sterne. Vor mir die Welt, so treibt mich der Wind des Lebens, wein' nicht, mein Kind, die Tränen, sie sind vergebens. La Paloma ohe - einmal muß es vorbei sein! Nur Erinn'rung an Stunden der Liebe bleibt noch an Land zurück. Seemannsbraut ist die See, und nur ihr kann ich treu sein. Wenn der Sturmwind sein Lied singt, dann winkt mir der Großen Freiheit Glück! Wie blau ist das Meer, wie groß kann der Himmel sein! Ich schau' hoch vom Mastkorb weit in die Welt hinein. Nach vorn geht mein Blick, zurück darf kein Seemann schau'n. Cap Horn liegt auf Lee, jetzt heißt es auf Gott vertrau'n. Seemann, gib acht! Denn strahlt auch als Gruß des Friedens, hell in der Nacht das leuchtende Kreuz des Südens, schroff ist das Riff und schnell geht ein Schiff zugrunde. Früh oder spät schlägt jedem von uns die Stunde. La Paloma ohe - einmal wird es vorbei sein! Einmal holt uns die See, und das Meer gibt keinen von uns zurück. Seemannsbraut ist die See, und nur ihr kann ich treu sein. Wenn der Sturmwind sein Lied singt, dann winkt mir der Großen Freiheit Glück!

Sting - Fragile (1988) NL#12, UK#70 Lyrics: If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one Drying in the colour of the evening sun Tomorrow's rain will wash the stains away But something in our minds will always stay Perhaps this final act was meant To clinch a lifetime's argument That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could For all those born beneath an angry star Lest we forget how fragile we are On and on the rain will fall Like tears from a star like tears from a star On and on the rain will say How fragile we are how fragile we are On and on the rain will fall Like tears from a star like tears from a star On and on the rain will say How fragile we are how fragile we are How fragile we are how fragile we are

I only wanted to one time see you laughing. I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain. Purple rain, purple rain. Purple rain, purple rain. Purple rain, purple rain. I only wanted to see you bathing in the purple rain. I never wanted to be your weekend lover. I only wanted to be some kind of friend. Baby I could never steal you from another. It's such a shame our friendship had to end. Purple rain, purple rain. Purple rain, purple rain. Purple rain, purple rain. I only wanted to see you underneath the purple rain. Honey I know, I know, I know times are changing. It's time we all reach out for something new, That means you too. You say you want a leader, But you can't seem to make up your mind. I think you better close it, And let me guide you to the purple rain. Purple rain, purple rain. Purple rain, purple rain. If you know what I'm singing about up here. C'mon raise your hand. Purple rain, purple rain. I only want to see you, only want to see you.

RuPaul - Give It One More Try (2004)

RuPaul, the world's most famous Drag Queen (well apart from our London RVT Sunday fave Jonathan, a.k.a. Edna :-) burst onto the scene in 1993 with 'Supermodel (You Better Work)'. The album was just as brilliant. But unless you live on the wrong side of the pond you may have heard fairly little of him. 'Give it one more try', released in 2004 - a jaw-dropping 8 years ago - may have been an exception. If it hasn't, here is a chance to catch up :-)
RuPaul - Give It One More Try (2004) Lyrics: There’s a cab outside,
Should I tell him don’t bother?
I’ll say there’s been some mistake
And that he doesn’t have to wait
If it wasn’t so tragic, it would be funny
But i know that feelings have been hurt
And that you have the final word

October came early
Starting to look like rain
So what’s your hurry, baby
They’ll always be another plane

Give it one more try
Right here by my side
Leaving’s not the answer or the solution
Give it one more try
Let your conscience be your guide
Right here by my side no more confusion

Did you hear me say
that i really love you?
and that i always will
Nothing can change the way i feel
But I’m starting to question why i try to persuade you
Cause if you don’t look me in the eyes
How can i begin to change your mind?

I don’t wanna blow it by
standing in your way
You say that you’re going
There’s gotta be a better way

There was a time
When you said we’d always be together
Said it would be you and me forever
And there was a time
When we didn’t think about tomorrow
Don’t let our future end right here in sorrow

If this is goodbye, at least i know i really tried
I gave the best i had to offer you

Depeche Mode (1981 - to date)

Depeche Mode formed in 1980 in Basildon, Essex, England - although their origins date back to 1977, when schoolmates Vince Clarke and Andrew Fletcher formed a band called No Romance in China, with Vince on vocals and guitar and Andrew on bass.
Vince then played guitar in 'Ultravox rip-off band' The Plan in 1979 with friends Robert Marlow and Paul Langwith, while Martin Gore played guitar in acoustic duo Norman & The Worms with school friend Philip Burdett on vocals. Marlow, Gore, and Paul Redmond formed a band called The French Look.
In March 1980, Vince, Martin and Andrew formed a band called Composition of Sound. Soon after the formation of Composition of Sound, Vince and Andrew switched to synthesizers. Dave Gahan joined the band in 1980 after Vince heard him perform at a local scout hut jam session, singing to a rendition of David Bowie's 'Heroes' - and Depeche Mode were born.
When explaining the choice for the new name, taken from a French fashion magazine, Dépêche Mode, Martin Gore said: 'It means hurried fashion or fashion dispatch. I like the sound of that.'
Martin recollects that the first time the band played as Depeche Mode was a school gig in May 1980. The band made their recording debut in 1980 on the Some Bizzare Album with the song 'Photographic', which was later re-recorded for their debut album Speak & Spell.
While playing a live gig at the Bridge House in Canning Town, London, Depeche Mode were approached by Daniel Miller, founder of Mute Records, who was interested in them recording a single for his label. The result of this verbal contract was their first single, recorded in December 1980 and released in February 1981:
Dreaming of Me (1981) - US#47, UK#57 - non album single release (no video)

Encouraged by this, the band recorded their second single:
New Life (1981) - UK#11, IRL#22, US#29 - Speak & Spell

The next single was a relentlessly upbeat piece of synthpop, which became the band's first UK Top10 hit and it remains one of their best known songs. It was also the first Depeche Mode song to get a music video and is the only one of the band's videos to feature Vince Clarke. Depeche Mode's debut album, Speak & Spell, was released in November 1981 and peaked at number ten on the UK album charts:

Depeche Mode - Just Can't Get Enough (1981) - Speak & Spell
AUS#4, UK#8, SWE#14, IRL#16, US#26



During the touring and promotion for Speak & Spell, Vince began to voice his discomfort at the direction Depeche Mode were taking and, in November 1981, he was leaving the band. He joined up with blues singer Alison Moyet to form Yazoo and, later, the duo Erasure with Andy Bell. Initial talk of continuing to write material for Depeche Mode amounted to nothing. Vince offered them the track 'Only You, but they declined. It went on to become a UK Top3 hit for Yazoo.
In late 1981, they placed an anonymous advertisement in British music mag Melody Maker looking for another musician. Alan Wilder from Hammersmith, West London was hired in early 1982 initially on a trial basis as a touring member. In January 1982, the band released:

Depeche Mode - See You (1982) - A Broken Frame
UK#6, IRL#9, DE#44



The tour that followed the release of the single saw the band playing their first shows in North America. Two more singles were released ahead of the band's second studio album:

Depeche Mode - The Meaning of Love (1982) -A Broken Frame
UK#12, IRL#17, SWE#16, DE#64



Depeche Mode - Leave in Silence (1982) - A Broken Frame
IRL#13, SWE#17, UK#18, DE58



Depeche Mode began work on their second album in July 1982. Daniel Miller informed Alan that he was not needed for the recording of the album, as the band wanted to prove that they could succeed without Vince Clarke.
A Broken Frame was released that September and the following month the band set off on their second tour of 1982. A non-album single was released in January 1983, and was the first Depeche Mode track to be recorded with Alan:

Depeche Mode - Get the Balance Right! (1983) - non album single release
UK#13, IRL#16, US#31, DE#38



For their third album, Construction Time Again, Depeche Mode worked with producer Gareth Jones, at John Foxx's Garden Studios and at Hansa Studios in West Berlin. The album saw a dramatic shift in the group's sound: by sampling the noises of everyday objects, the band created an industrial sound.
Along with the music, Martin's songwriting was also rapidly evolving, focusing increasingly on political and social issues. An example of the new sound was on the first single, a commentary on the perceived greed of multinational corporations:

Depeche Mode Everything Counts (1983) - Construction Time Again
UK#6, CH#8, IRL#15, SWE#18, DE#23, AT#26, IT#32



In September 1983, to promote Construction Time Again the band launched a concert tour all over Europe.

Depeche Mode - Love in Itself (1983) - Construction Time Again
UK#21, IRL#27, DE#28



In their early years, Depeche Mode had only really attained success in Europe and Australia, however this changed in March 1984 when they released:

Depeche Mode- People are People (1984) - Some Great Reward
DE#1, IRL#2, UK#4, CH#4, US#13, SWE#15, IT#20, AUS#25



The song was used as the theme to West German TV's coverage of the 1984 Olympics and also charted in the US charts in mid-1985. The song had then become an anthem for the LGBT community. In September 1984, Some Great Reward was released.
In contrast to the political and environmental subjects addressed on the previous album, the songs on Some Great Reward were mostly concerned with more personal themes such as sexual politics...

Depeche Mode - Master and Servant (1984) - Some Great Reward
DE#2, SWE#7, CH#8, UK#9, IT#27, FR#34, US#49, AUS#89



... adulterous relationships...

Depeche Mode - Lie To Me (1984)



...and arbitrary divine justice...

Depeche Mode - Blasphemous Rumours (1984) - Some Great Reward
IRL#8, UK#16, CH#19, DE#22, AUS#87



Depeche Mode - Blasphemous Rumours (1984)
********** RARE 8 min version! *********




Also included was the first Martin Gore ballad. 'Somebody' was released as a double a-side with 'Blasphemous Rumours' and was the first single with Martin on lead vocals:

Depeche Mode - Somebody (1984) - Some Great Reward
was the flip-side of Blasphemous Rumours



In October 1985, Mute Records released a compilation, The Singles 81>85, which included the two non-album singles 'Shake the Disease' (one of my personal favourites of Depeche Mode) and 'It's Called a Heart'.

Depeche Mode - Shake the Disease (1985) - Singles 81->85
DE#4, SWE#5, CH#6, IRL#9, FR#13, UK#18, IT#29



Depeche Mode's musical style shifted again in 1986 with the release of 'Stripped', and its accompanying album Black Celebration. Retaining their sampling and the industrial sound, the band introduced an ominous, highly atmospheric and textured sound. Martin's lyrics also took on darker tone and became more pessimistic. 'New Dress' would mark the last time he attempted the kind of overt social commentary.

Depeche Mode - Stripped (1986) - Black Celebration
DE#4, CH#8, CH#9, IT#14, UK#15

The music video for 'A Question of Time' was the first to be directed by Anton Corbijn, beginning a working relationship that continues to the present day. He has directed a further 19 videos (the latest being 2006's 'Suffer Well') and has also filmed some of their live performances and designed stage sets and album and single covers.

Depeche Mode - A Question of Time (1986)



Music for the Masses saw further alterations in the band's sound. David Bascombe was called to assist with the recording sessions. In making the album the band largely eschewed sampling in favour of more synth experimentation. While the chart performance of the singles the next three singles 'Strangelove', 'Never Let Me Down Again' and 'Behind the Wheel' were somewhat disappointing in the UK, they scored high in Canada, Brazil, Germany, South Africa, Sweden and Switzerland. The album also achieved the long awaited breakthrough in the US, which would be eternally manifested by the final concert of the their promotional tour at the Rose Bowl, Pasadena - see my previous post - a concert I would do or give anything for to attend again in time travel. The '101' live album and documenary was the result. I could watch it over - and over - and over - and over, again. Orgasmic!

In mid-1989, the band began recording in Milan with producer Flood and engineer François Kevorkian. The initial result of this session was the single:

Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus (1989)



Released in January 1990, 'Enjoy the Silence' became one of Depeche Mode's most successful singles to date, reaching number six in the UK. A few months later it became Depeche Mode's biggest hit in the US, reaching number eight and earning the band a second gold single. It won 'Best British single' at the 1991 Brit Awards.

Depeche Mode - Enjoy The Silence (1990)



To promote their album Violator, the band held an in-store autograph signing at Wherehouse Entertainment in Los Angeles. The event attracted approximately 20,000 fans and turned into a near riot.
Some of those who attended were injured by being pressed against the store's glass by the crowd. As an apology to the fans who were injured, the band released a limited edition cassette tape to fans living in Los Angeles.

Lyrics:

Well, well, well
You finally got here
I've been sitting up all night
Just waiting to talk to ya
But that is nothing unusual huh,
Is it honey?
Well, what happened?
Your bit of trash, she kicked you out
And you thought you'd come
Running back to me?
Well let me tell you honey
I've got better things to do
Than sit around waiting for you
Just listen to me, listen to me honey
I’m own the house, i pay the bills
And you've been living on borrowed time
Can you dig it?
You'd better believe it
Don't look at me like that
With those sogged eyes
Thinking i'd come running back to you
What am i doing?
Yes, i'm packing your bag
Don't touch me
Don't, don't, don't touch me

I have taken all
I'm gonna take from you
You kicked and beat me until
I was black and blue
Never again will i suffer in silence
From your verbal abuse and
Your physical violence

Now boy it's my turn, my home and my glory
Here comes the end of a very long story
I'm out control now and as weak as i am
I'm at that point where i don't give a damn

This is a love eviction,
An end to the friction
Just head straight for the door
A love eviction, a sentence and conviction
You don't live here anymore

This is a love eviction,
An end to the friction
You're leaving now, there's no doubt
A love eviction, a sentence and conviction
Just take your things and get out

You're leaving tonight boy,
It's my turn to shout
Get out of my sight,
I'm kicking you out
I'm saving myself respect,
Saving my pride
Start packing your bags,
Leave your keys on the side

Get out of my house now,
Don't ever come back
You'd better start moving,
I'm on the attack
Don't ever return here,
Don't dock in my door
For this love affair is over,
I can't stand it no more

This is a love eviction,
An end to the friction
Just head straight for the door
A love eviction, a sentence and conviction
You don't live here anymore

This is a love eviction (get out),
An end to the friction (get out)
I said get out
A love eviction, a sentence and conviction

Get on up, get on now
Get on up and get out of my house
What do you think you're doing?
I said get up and get out
Get on up, get on now
Get on up and get out of my house
Get on up, get on now
Get on up and get out of my house
Get on up, get on now
Get on up and get out of my house
Get on up, get on now
Get on up

The Killers - When You Were Young (2006)

The Killers formed in 2001. Brandon Flowers (front man), Dave Keuning, Mark Stoermer and Ronnie Vannucci Jr. from Las Vegas, Nevada teamed up after Brandon had left Blush Response, a Synthpop band, when the rest of the band decided to move to California. Seeing an Oasis gig, he decided to move into Rock; and the rest is history.
The Killers draw some of their influences from the music styles of the 1980s, as well as from Bruce Springsteen, which is most notable in their biggest hit so far: When You Were Young, released in 2006 as headline track of their second album Sam's Town. It was certified Diamond in Brazil (500k), Platinum in the US (1mm) and voted #37 by XFM as tracks of all time in 2009.

The Killers - When You Were Young (Live @ The Royal Albert Hall 2009)




Lyrics:

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch it now
Here he comes

He doesnt look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined
When you were young

Can we climb this mountain
I dont know
Higher now than ever before
I know we can make it if we take it slow
Let's take it easy
Easy now
Watch it go

We're burning down the highway skyline
On the back of a hurricane
That started turning
When you were young
When you were young

And sometimes you close your eyes
And see the place where you used to live
When you were young

They say the devil's water
It ain't so sweet
You dont have to drink right now
But you can dip your feet
Every once in a little while

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch it now
Here he comes

He doesnt look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined
When you were young
(talks like a gentleman)
(like you imagined)
When you were young

I said he doesnt look a thing like Jesus
He doesnt look a thing like Jesus
But more than you'll ever know

Kings of Leon - Sex on Fire (2008)

Here is a very interesting - and entertaining at that - article in today's London Evening Standard I would sign no-questions asked:
It argues that electronic Dance Music is, in fact, NOT the seeming culprit it is always blamed to be, for the slow and painful decline of the musical genre of Rock. And spot-on he is. What has this to do with the Kings of Leon? Read on, here's the article:

Has rock really hit the bottom of the charts?
Richard Godwin, Evening Standard 12 Jan 2011
I blame Kings of Leon. If anyone killed rock'n'roll, it was the Followill brothers, in the billiard room, with a certain song.
- continues below the video -

Kings of Leon - Sex on Fire (2008)

- continued from above -
Sex On Fire, inspired by Caleb Followill's ill-advised attempt to smoke a cigarette through his urethra, was released in September 2008 and immediately reached number one in the UK singles chart.

It went on to spend an astonishing 87 weeks in the Top 75, selling over one million copies, gushing bombastic mediocrity into the airwaves in a manner that went on to inspire the BP oil leak. Habitats were destroyed. Livelihoods ruined. And the high-flying bird we call rock'n'roll was smothered.

This week, the world noticed the corpse. We learned that post-Sex, sales of rock singles have hit an all-time low. Well, perhaps not all-time — they were significantly lower in 1834 — but with just three per cent of the 100 bestselling songs of last year defined as “rock”, middle-aged white men begin to worry that their tastes and preoccupations are no longer dominating every conceivable area of life.

“It is the end of the rock era. It's over in the same way that the jazz era is over,” lamented DJ Paul Gambaccini, who complained that record companies are now too short-sighted to invest in proper talent and budding guitarists are having to buy their own plectrums.

So who's the culprit? As Kings of Leon nervously twiddle their thumbs, a potential assailant has been identified. Hip-hop and R'n'B accounted for 47 per cent of last year's top sellers, with pop at 40 per cent, dance at 10 per cent and ragtime a non-mover at zero. The shift from “deep” rock music to ephemeral party music seems complete.

To complicate matters, however, the biggest-selling single of all last year was the rather moody hip-hop song, Love The Way You Lie, by Eminem and Rihanna. I recently saw it performed at a provincial karaoke night by a pair of emo kids, who wrought a compelling amount of angst from it. What conclusions to draw? That “hip-hop” is capable of doing “rock” emotions? That genre is hard to define these days?

Or merely that one form of music popularised by white men trying to copy black men has been surpassed by another form of music popularised by white men trying to copy black men? Anyway, if you look closely, you may just see the corpse of rock'n'roll twitch. In fact, you may see it get up, scratch its balls and order a pint of watered-downed Carling at the bar.

Rock still accounts for 27 per cent of album sales and 84 per cent of pub conversations, dominates the live arena and has found new audiences through games such as Guitar Hero. In fact, Forbes' list of the Top 10 grossing acts of last year — U2 first, AC/DC second, Springsteen fourth — reveals that the outlook for ageing white males with guitars is rather rosy.

But somehow I find the presence of Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Lady Gaga on the list more reassuring.

Robin S. - Show Me Love (1993)

Robin Jackson, widely better known as simply Robin S., is the daughter of late Stonewall Jackson, boxer from Queens, NY, where Robin was born on 27 Jan 1962. Hard to believe that a track, which - like no other - pulls people to the dancefloors worldwide, only charted rather modestly back in 1993. It has been covered and remixed (but never matched, let alone bettered!) many-a-times since: Steve Angello, Swedish landsman of original producer Sten StoneBridge Hallstrom, would be one of them. More recently Jason Derulo sampled shockingly large parts of 'Show Me Love' in his 2011 'Don't Wanna Go Home'

Wang Chung (黃鐘) - Dance Hall Days (1984)

Wang Chung were a British New Wave trio formed in 1980. The name Wang Chung means 'Yellow Bell' (黃鐘 -'Huáng Zhōng'), and is the first note in the Chinese classical music scale. They found their biggest success in the US (incl. follow ups) and continental Europe with 'Dance Hall Days', while at home they remained relatively unknown.

Charlene - I've Never Been To Me (1976/1982)

Charlene Marilynn D'Angelo, born 1 June 1950 in Hollywood
Charlene - I've Never Been To Me (1976/1982) 1976: US#97 1982: UK#1, US#3 Lyrics: Hey lady, you lady, cursing at your life You're a discontented mother and a regimented wife I've no doubt you dream about the things you'll never do But, I wish someone had talked to me Like I wanna talk to you..... Oh, I've been to Georgia and California and anywhere I could run I took the hand of a preacher man and we made love in the sun But I ran out of places and friendly faces because I had to be free I've been to paradise but I've never been to me Please lady, please lady, don't just walk away 'Cause I have this need to tell you why I'm all alone today I can see so much of me still living in your eyes Won't you share a part of a weary heart that has lived million lies.... Oh, I've been to Niece and the Isle of Greece while I've sipped champagne on a yacht I've moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo and showed 'em what I've got I've been undressed by kings and I've seen some things that a woman ain't supposed to see I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me [spoken] Hey, you know what paradise is? It's a lie, a fantasy we create about people and places as we'd like them to be But you know what truth is? It's that little baby you're holding, it's that man you fought with this morning The same one you're going to make love with tonight That's truth, that's love...... Sometimes I've been to crying for unborn children that might have made me complete But I took the sweet life, I never knew I'd be bitter from the sweet I've spent my life exploring the subtle whoring that costs too much to be free Hey lady...... I've been to paradise, (I've been to paradise) But I've never been to me (I've been to Georgia and California, and anywhere I could run) I've been to paradise, never been to me (I've been to Neice and the isle of Greece while I've sipped champagne on a yacht) I've been to paradise, never been to me (I've been to cryin' for unborn children that might have made me complete) I've been to paradise, never been to me (I've been to Georgia and California, and anywhere I could run) I've been to paradise, never been to me Cover Versions in other languages: Cantonese Vivian Chow's Cantonese version '孤單的心痛' ('The solitary heartache') is a Cantopop love song based on I've Never Been to Me. Japanese There are two different versions of the lyrics in Japanese. One largely follows the original theme, while a newer version has completely different lyrics written by Keiko Aso(麻生圭子) with the title "LOVE IS ALL ~愛を聴かせて~"(Love is All -Let me hear your love-). Japanese female singer Megumi Shiina(椎名恵) recorded it for a TV period drama of the unrequited love between Takeda Shingen's daughter and Oda Nobunaga's son. The latter, positive version is often used as a wedding song in Japan; the chorus line "never been to me" is replaced with "my love is true". This reappropriation of the song's melody for use in a wedding is quite ironic, as the original song's lyrics describe a single, lonely, aged, childless, promiscuous woman who never got married and wishes she had borne children; further, the singer describes the life of a married woman - the implied listener of the song - as a "discontented mother and a regimented wife" who "dream[s] about the things you'll never do". The original lyrics' meaning would be a rather poor fit for a wedding. However, the wild and free-wheeling lifestyle of the singer, even if presented in lurid detail (having "been undressed by kings, and ... seen some things that a woman ain't supposed to see") is presented as a warning to the bored housewife, that the boring married lifestyle is, in the end, better than a life of free-love that ends in loneliness and solitude. Seen this way, this warning could be construed as appropriate for a wedding. In any event, this adaptation uses different lyrics, so younger Japanese listeners may be unaware of the original lyrics' meaning. By the way, in Japan the original English version itself is known with another title "Ai wa Kagerou no you ni"(roughly meaning 'love seems ephemeral'), as is often the case for oversea songs released there. Mandarin '三月的玫瑰' ('Rose of March'), performed by Taiwanese singer, Jin Rei-Yao (金瑞瑤). Taiwanese singer Teresa Teng recorded versions of this song both in Mandarin and in English Female group S.H.E. performed this song in one of their albums without altering the lyrics. The spoken bridge was missing, possibly because of the catchier tempo and melody that the group used to cover this song. Spanish Charlene herself recorded a Spanish version of this song called 'Nunca He Ido A Mi' with the spoken bridge portion intact. It was released concurrently with the English version. Swedish With the lyrics 'Jag har sett himmelen' ('I have seen heaven') in Swedish, Kikki Danielsson recorded the song on her 1983 album 'Singles Bar'. Finnish Seija Simola recorded the Finnish version 'En tunne itseäin' ('I do not know myself') in 1984. It was released as a single, as well as on the compilation 'Jokamiehen suosikit 10'. Korean 'As One' (에즈원), Korean female duo, Crystal (Dahee Chae 채다희) and Min (Minyoung Lee 이민영). Lyric by Sara Yun (윤사라), and re-arranged by Jaehong Shin (신재홍). Album Day by day, released on November 11, 1999. German A German version with the same sentiment as in the original version, but a softer choice of words (avoiding phrases like 'exploring the subtle whoring', which can be found in Charlene's original version) was recorded by Swiss-born singer Paola under the title 'Ich hab' ins Paradies geseh'n (I've peeked into paradise)'. Mary Roos recorded the German rendering 'Doch mich selber kenn ich nicht' for her 1978 album Maryland: Michael Kunze wrote the lyrics for this version whose title translates as "But I do not know myself". Leonard remade this version for his 2001 Rhythmus der nacht album. In 2009, German singer Ina Müller recorded the song in the German minority language of 'Plattdütsch' (Low German) as 'De Wind vun Hamborg' (meaning 'The breeze of Hamburg'). The Low German lyrics, written by Müller herself, tell about the singer's experiences during her travels of Northern Germany and concluding that the most happy times have always been when she felt the breeze of Hamburg blowing, thereby transporting the sentiment that there's no place like home. Prior to the studio recording, "De Wind vun Hamborg" had been part of Ina Müller's stage act for several years and still is. Vietnamese A Vietnamese version of 'I've Never Been To Me' was written and sung by Vân Quỳnh. The title of the song is called 'Thiên Đường Ảo' ('Virtual Heaven').

Lyrics:

On a bridge across the Severn on a saturday night,
Susie meets the man of her dreams.
He says that he got in trouble and if she doesn't mind
He doesn't want the company
But there's something in the air
They share a look in silence and everything is understood
Susie grabs her man and puts a grip on his hand as the rain puts a tear in his eye.

Don't let go
Never give up, it's such a wonderful life
Don't let go
Never give up, it's such a wonderful life

Driving through the city to the temple station,
Cries into the leather seat
And Susie knows the baby was a family man,
But the world has got him down on his knees

So she throws him at the wall and kisses burn like fire,
And suddenly he starts to believe
He takes her in his arms and he doesn't know why,
But he thinks that he begins to see

Don't let go
Never give up, it's such a wonderful life
Don't let go
Never give up, it's such a wonderful life
Don't let go
Never give up, it's such a wonderful life
Don't let go
Never give up, it's such a wonderful life

Don't let go
Never give up
Don't let go
Never give up, it's such a wonderful life

Wonderful life, wonderful life, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful life
Wonderful life, wonderful life, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful life

Don't let go

Layo & Bushwacka! - Love Story (2002)

Layo & Bushwacka! - Love Story (2002) US(Dance)#4, UK#8 Lyrics: Time marches on never ending, time keeps its own time Here we stand at beginning, and then goes passing us by, And I, I, I can dream for us all, I hope I'm in a better state, When here and now crumbles and falls and you, you , you who make worlds collide I knew you'd come knocking one day, unannounced like a thief in the night. Where do we go from here, time ain't nothing but time, I now have no fear of my fears And no more tears to cry, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow means nothing at all If we don't hear the line, when today places its call, and morning, morning, Morning, won't ever be the same, now I won't make the same mistakes, Time and time again Time and time again Time and time again Time and time again Time and time again So tell me how do you do Finally having you You don't know what I've been through, waiting and wondering about you I had a dream my trip would end up at you, and now I know paradise So tell me how do you do Finally having you You don't know what I've been through, waiting and wondering about you I had a dream my trip would end up at you, and now I know paradise

The Bucketheads - The Bomb! (1995)

The Bucketheads project started as a reaction against commercial Eurodance. One night, Kenny 'Dope' Gonzalez was driving from Manhattan to Brooklyn with Johnny 'D' De Mairo. As they were listening to some 'terrible records' on the radio, Kenny had this idea to melt together old disco classics. Back home, he selected a couple of LP's and produced the famous 'Dungeon Tapes EP' in three days.
The first 12" taken out of Kenny's mixing sessions was 'I Wanna Know', with 'The Bomb' as the B-Side. The A-Side, a rework of 'Motivation' originally performed by Atmosfear, received a relative success in New York while 'The Bomb' started to be played in Europe. Against all expectations, 'The Bomb' exploded in the kingdom of Eurodance, shooting up the charts in several countries. Based on samples of 'Streetplayer' by Chicago, 'The Bomb' is a metaphoric title. The original 15 minutes long 'Henry Street' mix set the stakes. Presented by the voice of Reverend C.L. Franklin (re-sampled from 'Preacherman' by Green Velvet), the sermon leads into a long, repetitive progression (the wick), leading to the core of 'The Bomb'. The subtitle of the track, 'These Sounds Fall Into My Mind', is modelled upon the actual lyrics of 'Streetplayer': 'Street sounds swirling through my mind'. After a settlement for samples clearance, which cost $30,000, Armand Van Helden re-edited the track to 8 minutes. A feedback effect in North America later gave 'The Bomb' the noble title of 'classic'. A full album and a follow-up single 'Got Myself Together' ended the project. Eventually, many artists took the idea back where Kenny left it: Etienne De Crécy, Daft Punk and the whole French scene was undoubtedly influenced by it. In 2006, Workidz covered the track as 'Street Sounds' and in 2008 new versions of 'The Bomb' were released by Luke Francis and Sunrider. The Bucketheads - The Bomb!

Totally love this track, suggested by the son of my cousin-in-law (not sure what that is in real terms). Bwana hails from Toronto, Canada.

Rebecca Ferguson - Glitter & Gold (2012)

OK, so she has been casted. And OK, it was X Factor... - but you know, this remix does her more than justice. Similar to Agnes' 'Release Me' a couple of years ago, remixers Cahill have pulled it off again: runaway surpremacy!
Rebecca Ferguson - Glitter & Gold - Cahill Club Remix (2012) - not yet charted - Lyrics: How good or bad Happy or sad Does it have to get? Losing yourself Don't cry for help You don't think you need it And old friends are just a chore But now you need 'em more than ever before All that glitter And all that gold Won't buy you happy When you've been bored and sore Riding wild horses You can't control With all your glitter And all of your gold Take care of your soul Take care of your soul Soul, soul, soul How high, how low How on your own Does it have to get? Losing your soul Will cost you more And that life you're paying for And all those friends that are just a chore You're gonna need 'em more than never before All that glitter And all that gold Won't buy you happy When you've been bored and sore Riding wild horses You can't control With all your glitter And all of your gold Take care of your soul One day you're gonna wake up and find that No dream is losing it's shining Nobody is by your side When the rain comes down And you're losing your mind So who you're gonna run to? Where you're gonna hide Glitter and gold won't keep you warm All those lonely nights And all those friends that were such a chore You're gonna need 'em more than ever before All that glitter And all that gold Won't buy you happy When you've been bored and sore Riding wild horses You can't control With all your glitter And all of your gold To care of your soul Take care of your soul And all of your gold Take care of your soul Take care of your soul Soul, soul, soul Take care of your soul Take care of your soul Take care of your soul Take care of your soul Take care of your soul
