THE CURE - JUST LIKE HEAVEN (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back.... God, I love this song.

Stunning sounds, beautiful lyrics just move me to a melodic place, so warm, just like heaven...

Released in 1987, 'Just like Heaven' was from the album 'Kiss me, Kiss me, Kiss me' and was written by Robert after a trip to the beach with his Girlfriend at the time (Then became his wife).

The song was about  hyperventilating—kissing and fainting to the floor,... sounds good to me :)

Made it to No 27 on the U.S Music charts

LYRICS
show me
show me
show me
how you do that trick
the one that makes me scream
she said
the one that makes me laugh
she said
and threw her arms around my neck

show me how you do it
and i promise you
i promise that i'll run away with you
i'll run away with you

spinning on that dizzy edge
i kissed her face and kissed her head
and dreamed of all the different ways i had
to make her glow
why are you so far away?
she said
but won't you ever know that i'm in love with you?
that i'm in love with you?

you
soft and only
you
lost and lonely
you
strange as angels
dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
you're just like a dream...
you're just like a dream...

daylight licked me into shape
i must have been asleep for days
and moving lips to breathe her name
i opened up my eyes
and found myself alone
alone
alone
above a raging sea
that stole the only girl i loved
and drowned her deep inside of me

you
soft and only
you
lost and lonely
you
just like heaven

THE STYLE COUNCIL - SHOUT TO THE TOP (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back......Fronted by Paul Weller (ex The Jam), this UK band had a huge hit with this song....

From the 1985 album "Our Favourite Shop", 'Shout to the Top' made it to No 7 in the UK music charts.

The rest of The Style Council featured  keyboardist Mick Talbot, (ex Dexys Midnight Runners) and female Vocalist 'Dee C Lee' (Weller's wife at the time).

For me,I love this song, it was played massively on the radio at the time (Sydney 2SM - Rock of the 80s), even today is still sounds crisp and lively.....

Another good song from the album was a song called 'Boy who cried Wolf', wasnt as big a hit as Shout to the Top but it was still a brilliant song.....

THE CHURCH - ALMOST WITH YOU (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back..... Such an awesome song, the 1982 hit 'Almost with You' by Sydney (Australia) band "The Church"

This single came from the Album ' The Blurred Crusade'....

Love the guitar bit in the middle, send shivers down my spine...
and lyrics you can sing to (Ive added them down below, so you can sing with me)

Enjoy




THE CHURCH - ALMOST WITH YOU  (Thanks to nzoz1982 for your excellent videos)



ALMOST WITH YOU

See the chains which bind the men
Can you taste their lonely arrogance
It's always too late and your face is so cold
They struggled for this opulence
See the suns which blind the men
Burnt away so long before our time
Now their warmth is forgotten and gone
Pretty maid's not far behind

Who you trying to get in touch with
Who you trying to get in touch with
Who you trying to get in touch with

I'm almost with you, I can sense it wait for me
I'm almost with you, is this the taste of victory
I'm almost with you

See the dust which fills your sleep
Does it always feel this chill near the end
I never dreamed we'd meet here once more
This laugh reserved for a friend

Who you trying to get in touch with
Who you trying to get in touch with
Who you trying to get in touch with

I'm almost with you, I can sense it wait for me
I'm almost with you, is this the taste of victory
I'm almost with you
I'm almost with you, I can sense it wait for me
I'm almost with you, is this the taste of victory
I'm almost with you, I can sense it wait for me
I'm almost with you, is this the taste of victory
I'm almost with you, I'm almost with you, I'm almost with you
