The Beat Goes On

Saturday, January 22, 2011

I'm still fighting with the computer system at work - half the time (or more!) the medications I need to give aren't listed in the system, and I have to do a work-around. Grrr! We're told "It's here, get used to it, use it." Sigh


Sonny & Cher - 1967 - as things change ...


The beat goes on, the beat goes on
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain
La de da de de, la de da de da


Charleston was once the rage, uh huh
History has turned the page, uh huh
The mini skirts the current thing, uh huh
Teenybopper is our newborn king, uh huh


Chorus

The grocery store's the super mart, uh huh
Little girls still break their hearts, uh huh
And men still keep on marching off to war
Electrically they keep a baseball score


Chorus

Grandmas sit in chairs and reminisce
Boys keep chasing girls to get a kiss
The cars keep going faster all the time
Bums still cry "hey buddy, have you got a dime"

You've Lost That Loving Feeling

Thursday, January 20, 2011

1965 - The Righteous Brothers - W0a-oh-oh-oh!

You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips.
And there's no tenderness like before in your fingertips.
You're trying hard not to show it, (baby).
But baby, baby I know it...


You've lost that lovin' feeling,
Whoa, that lovin' feeling,
You've lost that lovin' feeling,
Now it's gone...gone...gone...wooooooh.


Now there's no welcome look in your eyes
when I reach for you.
And now your're starting to criticize little things I do.
It makes me just feel like crying, (baby).
'Cause baby, something in you is dying.


You lost that lovin' feeling,
Whoa, that lovin' feeling,
You've lost that lovin' feeling,
Now it's gone...gone...gone...woooooah


Baby, baby, I get down on my knees for you.
If you would only love me like you used to do, yeah.
We had a love...a love...a love you don't find everyday.
So don't...don't...don't...don't let it slip away.


Baby (baby), baby (baby),
I beg of you please...please,
I need your love (I need your love),
I need your love (I need your love),
So bring it on back (So bring it on back),
Bring it on back (so bring it on back).


Bring back that lovin' feeling,
Whoa, that lovin' feeling
Bring back that lovin' feeling,
'Cause it's gone...gone...gone,
and I can't go on,
noooo...


Bring back that lovin' feeling,
Whoa, that lovin' feeling
Bring back that lovin' feeling,
'Cause it's gone...gone...

Wake Up, Little Susie

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Bleh - I had a lot of trouble sleeping today. I'd been up all night (on purpose), and tried lying down @ 0800. No dice. The birds were outof their cage and hadn't returned to it like they usually do. I draped most of their cage, leaving the top open. They'd flutter around the room and back to the curtains - keeping Samurai & Shalako in hunting mode.


The birds finally got just within the cage opening, but where they could fly off again if I approached them. I gave up around 10 and went out to the reclioner in the living room. Guess it didn't help that I'm reading a really good book (Voyager, by Diana Galbadon)


- finally nodded off about 1300 (1P). Dozed off & on - everytime I moved, the pups seemed to think it was time to get up - got up around 1930 (7:30P). Dragged the pups on a 2.5 mile walk to get my cardio & steps in.

Everly Brothers, 1957 (my middle name is Susan, BTW)

Wake up, little Susie, wake up
Wake up, little Susie, wake up
We’ve both been sound asleep, wake up, little Susie, and weep
The movie’s over, it’s four o’clock, and we’re in trouble deep


Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie, well


Whatta we gonna tell your mama
Whatta we gonna tell your pa


Whatta we gonna tell our friends when they say “ooh-la-la”
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie, well


I told your mama that you’d be in by ten
Well Susie baby looks like we goofed again


Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie, we gotta go home


Wake up, little Susie, wake up
Wake up, little Susie, wake up
The movie wasn’t so hot, it didn’t have much of a plot


We fell asleep, our goose is cooked, our reputation is shot
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie, well


Whatta we gonna tell your mama
Whatta we gonna tell your pa
Whatta we gonna tell our friends when they say “ooh-la-la”


Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie

Unchained Melody

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

The Righteous Brothers, Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield, 1965 - made even more famous in "Ghost". It's been on the radio a lot lately...

www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrK5u5W8afc&
feature=related


Whoa! My love, my darling,
I hunger for your touch,
Alone. Lonely time.


And time goes by, so slowly,
And time can do so much,


Are you still mine?
I need your love.


I need your love.
God speed your love to me.


Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea,
To the open arms of the sea.
Lonely rivers sigh, wait for me, wait for me,
I'll be coming home, wait for me.


Whoa! My love, my darling,
I hunger, hunger!, for your love,


For love. Lonely time.
And time goes by, so slowly,
And time can do so much,


Are you still mine?
I need your love.
I need your love.
God speed your love to me.
