You take my rainy days and make them go away

Wednesday commute with the iPod shuffle.

Nightclub Jitters, The Replacements

Long Snake Moan, PJ Harvey
Chained and Bound, Otis Redding
Sophisticated Lady, Linda Ronstadt
Big Shot, The English Beat

Count on Me (demo), Aladdin
Traffic Song, Joe Lutcher
The Broad Majestic Shannon, The Pogues
I Feel for You, Prince
Hi-Lili Hi-Lo, Rickie Lee Jones
Dancing Lessons, Sinead O’Connor

Nice mix of music, this. You know, for me, Chaka Khan so completely owns I Feel for You that I’d completely forgotten Prince wrote this. His original version is just weak and whiny in comparison.

Sinead O’Connor is another female vocalist that completely owns a Prince song - Nothing Compares 2 U. Sinead is an amazing singer; she has a powerful voice with a lot of emotion and range. Still,Dancing Lessons is a song I’m not that familiar with. For whatever reason, I haven’t listened much to the CD Faith and Courage, but I’ll take it for a spin after this.

Dancing Lessons is poppy and bouncy and one of the most cheerful songs I can recall. While not being gooey or sappy, I could easily hear it being played at weddings or anniversary parties. Looking for something upbeat? This is it.

Dancing Lessons
I wanna go wallking with you
If you'd agree
I wanna do some talking with you
Where no one can see
I wanna go dancing darling
If you agree
I think I'll feel a safe step darling
If you were with me
And when you wrap your arms around me
When you take me close and say
That you're so glad you found me
You take my rainy days and make them go away
Long time I've been thinking of you
Do you think of me too?
Long time I've been dreaming of you
Make this dream come true
Long time I've been wondering about this
Can this really exist
I swear I feel a peaceful feeling
In the warmth of your kiss
And when you wrap your arms around me
When you take me close and say
That you're so glad you found me
You take my rainy days and make them go away
On this journey may the good lord guide us
And may the goddess dance beside us
And when you wrap your arms around me
When you take me close and say
That you're so glad you found me
You take my rainy days and make them go away
And when you wrap your arms around me
When you take me close and say
That you're so glad you found me
You take my rainy days and make them go away


ps: The Official Sinead website is one of the most disgusting uses of Flash I’ve come across. Click if you must, but it just about ruined all the nice thoughts I had about her. http://www.sineadoconnormusic.com/
