Always by Atlantic Starr


This is a great song from the 80's. They had a couple of big hits and they are probably all on this playlist so this won't be the last that you see them. What I think of when I hear this song is how when I was a kid, I was shocked by the line "Let's go make a family." I thought it was talking about sex. Of course, now I actually listen to the rest of the lyrics and know different.



Girl you are to me
All that a woman should be
And I dedicate my life
To you always

A love like yours is rare
It must have been sent from up above
And I know you'll stay this way
For always

And we both know, that our love will grow
And forever it will be, you and me (yeah)
Ooh you're like the sun, chasing all of the rain away
When you come around you bring brighter days
You're the perfect one, for me and you forever will be
And I will love you so, for always

Come with me my sweet, let's go make a family.
They will bring us joy, for always.
Ooh boy I love you so, I can't find enough ways
To let you know, but you can be sure I'm yours for always.

And we both know, that our love will grow
And forever it will be, you and me (yeah)
Ooh you're like the sun, chasing all of the rain away
When you come around you bring brighter days
You're the perfect one, for me and you forever will be
And I will love you so, for always

(Ooh... ooh... I will love you so for always.)
(Ooh... ooh... I will love you so for always.)
(Ooh... ooh... I will love you so for always.)

Paint it Black by the Rolling Stones


I hate to admit it but I really started liking this song after hearing it in Full Metal Jacket. I'd also like to say I remember it growing up but I truly don't.



I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love, both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a new born baby it just happens every day

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door, I must have it painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I want to see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I want to see the sun blotted out from the sky
I want to see it painted, painted, painted, painted black, yeah

Misery Business by Paramore


I'm guessing this was added by my daughter. I know of Paramore but didn't know I had any of their songs on here. It wasn't bad and I do have a soft spot for woman rocker's.



(hit that, hit that snare)

I'm in the business of misery,
Let's take it from the top.
She's got a body like an hourglass, it's ticking like a clock.
It's a matter of time before we all run out,
When I thought he was mine she caught him by the mouth.

I waited eight long months,
She finally set him free.
I told him I couldn't lie he was the only one for me.
Two weeks we caught on fire,
She's got it out for me,
But I wear the biggest smile.

Whoa, I never meant to brag.
But I got him where I want him now.
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now.
But God does it feel so good,
'Cause I got him where I want him now.
And if you could then you know you would.
'Cause God it just feels so...
It just feels so good.

Second chances they don't ever matter, people never change.
Once a whore you're nothing more, I'm sorry, that'll never change.
And about forgiveness, we're both supposed to have exchanged.
I'm sorry honey, but I passed it up, now look this way.
Well there's a million other girls who do it just like you.
Looking as innocent as possible to get to who,
They want and what they like, it's easy if you do it right.
Well I refuse, I refuse, I refuse!

Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now.
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now.
But God does it feel so good,
'Cause I got him where I want him right now.
And if you could then you know you would.
'Cause God it just feels so...
It just feels so good.

I watched his wildest dreams come true
Not one of them involving you
Just watch my wildest dreams come true
Not one of them involving...

Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now.

Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now.
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now.
But God does it feel so good,
'Cause I got him where I want him now.
And if you could then you know you would.
'Cause God it just feels so...
It just feels so good.

Get On Your Knees and Fight Like A Man by Petra


I once was in a march in Washington and was wearing a Petra t-shirt that said this song title on the back and I got stopped and interviewed on the radio for it. They asked me what the back of the shirt meant and I remember having to stop and think "what shirt do I have on?" before answering. I never heard the interview on the radio but I was interviewed.


This album is listed on my Albums Owned page.

This artist is listed on my Seen in Concert page.

This artist and album are listed on my 20+ page.


Out on your own with your own self reliance
You've got no one to watch your back
You find yourself caught with no strong alliance
You've been left open for attack

Over your head the condition is graver
You've given ground you can't retrieve
The cards are stacked and they're not in your favor
But you've got an ace up your sleeve

Get on your knees and fight like a man
You'll pull down strongholds if you just believe you can
Your enemy will tuck his tail and flee
Get on your knees and fight like a man

Under the gun, you've got no place to hide out
Backed in the corner on your own
This is one storm you are destined to ride out
One way to leave the danger zone

Get on your knees and fight like a man
You'll pull down strongholds if you just believe you can
Your enemy will tuck his tail and flee
Get on your knees and fight like a man

You've got the backbone to fight this tide
You've got the will to survive
You've got the weapon, it's at your side
You've got to learn to confide 

Get on your knees and fight like a man
You'll pull down strongholds if you just believe you can
Your enemy will tuck his tail and flee
Get on your knees and fight like a man

Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain) by Gary Allan


I don't know who Gary Allan is so I doubt I have anything else of his on here. I'm guessing I heard him on the radio and enjoyed the song and added it to the playlist.



Oh so your standing in the middle of the thunder and lightning
I know you're feeling like you just can't win, but you're trying
It's hard to keep on keepin' on, when you're being pushed around
Don't even know which way is up, you just keep spinning down, 'round, down...

Every storm runs, runs out of rain
Just like every dark night turns into day
Every heartache will fade away
Just like every storm runs, runs out of rain

So hold your head up and tell yourself that there's something more
And walk out that door,
Go find a new rose, don't be afraid of the thorns
'Cause we all have thorns
Just put your feet up to the edge, put your face in the wind
And when you fall back down, keep on rememberin'

Every storm runs, runs out of rain
Just like every dark night turns into day
Every heartache will fade away
Just like every storm runs, runs out of rain

It's gonna run out of pain
It's gonna run out of sting
It's gonna leave you alone
It's gonna set you free
Set you free

Every storm runs, runs out of rain
Just like every dark night turns into day
Every heartache will fade away
Just like every storm runs, runs out of rain

It's gonna set you free,
It's gonna run out of pain,
And set you free

Pride (In the Name of Love) by U2


I like this song and I really like U2. You'll definitely see a lot more songs by the on this blog. Even though the album cover is there studio item, I actually have the live version on my playlist. I don't normally like live songs but this is actually pretty decent.



One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One man come he to justify
One man to overthrow

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed up on an empty beach
One man betrayed with a kiss

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

Early morning, April four
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

Mr. Brightside by the Killers


I don't really know much about this song or group, today was the first that I heard of it. It was one of the songs that my daughter put on my playlist. It wasn't bad, good enough to stay on the playlist but it wasn't anything spectacular. My daughter certainly knew it, she sang right along with it.



I'm coming out of my cage and I've been doing just fine
Gotta, gotta be down because I want it all
It started out with a kiss, how did it end up like this?
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I'm falling asleep and she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke and she's taking a drag
Now they're going to bed and my stomach is sick
And it's all in my head, but she's touching his

Chest now, he takes off her dress now
Let me go
I just can't look, it's killing me
And taking control

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis
But it's just the price I pay, destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes, 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside

I'm coming out of my cage and I've been doing just fine
Gotta, gotta be down because I want it all
It started out with a kiss, how did it end up like this?
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I'm falling asleep and she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke and she's taking a drag
Now they're going to bed and my stomach is sick
And it's all in my head, but she's touching his

Chest now, he takes off her dress now
Let me go
'Cause I just can't look, it's killing me
And taking control

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis
But it's just the price I pay, destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes, 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside

I never
I never
I never
I never

Somebody by Bryan Adams


Bryan Adams was definitely a staple of the 80's and you'll see a bunch more of his songs on here. I had one of his greatest hits album and listened to it a bunch.



I bin lookin' for someone 
Between the fire and the flame
We're all lookin' for somethin' 
To ease the pain 
Now who can you turn to 
When it's all black and white 
And the winners are losers 
You see it every night 

I need somebody 
Somebody like you 
Everybody needs somebody 

I need somebody 
Hey what about you 
Everybody needs somebody 
When you're out on the front line 
And you're watchin' them fall 
It doesn't take long to realize 
It ain't worth fightin' for 

I thought I saw the Madonna 
When you walked in the room 
Well your eyes were like diamonds 
And they cut right through - oh they cut right through 

I need somebody 
Somebody like you 
Everybody needs somebody 
I need somebody 
Hey what about you 
We all need somebody 

Another night another lesson learned 
It's the distance keeps us sane 
But when the silence leads to sorrow
We do it all again - all again 

[Chorus]

How Would You Feel (Paean) by Ed Sheeran


If you follow me on Twitter, then you know I added most of this album on to my playlist. I really probably could have added it all, there wasn't a song that I didn't like. I don't know the songs well, yet, as I only added them a couple of weeks ago. Love Ed Sheeran's music and the guy himself even seems pretty cool when I've seen him interviewed. I couldn't find any official video, I assume he probably hasn't done one yet or for all I know, he doesn't make any. Either way, at least you'll get to hear the song.



You are the one, girl
And you know that it's true
I'm feeling younger
Every time that I'm alone with you

We were sitting in a parked car
Stealing kisses in a front yard
We got questions we should not ask, but

How would you feel
If I told you I loved you?
It's just something that I want to do
I'll be taking my time
Spending my life
Falling deeper in love with you
So tell me that you love me too

In the summer
As the lilacs bloom
Love flows deeper than the river
Every moment that I spend with you

We were sat upon our best friend's roof
I had both of my arms around you
Watching the sunrise replace the moon, but

How would you feel
If I told you I loved you?
It's just something that I want to do
I'll be taking my time
Spending my life
Falling deeper in love with you
So tell me that you love me too

Yeah, we were sitting in a parked car
Stealing kisses in a front yard
We got questions we should not ask

How would you feel
If I told you I loved you?
It's just something that I want to do
I'll be taking my time
Spending my life
Falling deeper in love with you
Tell me that you love me too
Tell me that you love me too
Tell me that you love me too

Fading Like A Flower by Roxette


I really would have guessed this was an 80's song but I guess it missed that but a couple of years. Good vocals and I love the piano in it.



In a time where the sun descends alone 
I ran a long long way from home 
To find a heart that's made of stone 

I will try, I just need a little time 
To get your face right out of my mind 
To see the world through different eyes 

Every time I see you oh I try to hide away 
But when we meet it seems I can't let go 
Every time you leave the room I feel I'm fading like a flower 

Tell me why 
When I scream there's no reply 
When I reach out there's nothing to find 
When I sleep I break down and cry 
Cry, yeah 

Every time I see you oh I try to hide away 
But when we meet it seems I can't let go 
Every time you leave the room I feel I'm fading like a flower 

Fading like a rose 
Fading like a rose 
Beaten by the storm 
Talking to myself 
Getting washed by the rain 
It's such a cold cold town 
Oh, it's a such cold town 

Every time I see you oh I try to hide away 
But when we meet it seems I can't let go 
Every time you leave the room I feel I'm fading like a flower
