Gloria Gaynor- I Will Survive

At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinkin’ I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong
And I learned how to get along

And so you’re back from outer space
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I had known for just one second you’d be back to bother me

Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now
‘Cause you’re not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye?
Did you think I’d crumble?
Did you think I’d lay down and die?

Oh no not I, I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all my life to live
And I’ve got all my love to give
And I’ll survive
I will survive
Hey, hey

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
Kept tryin’ hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart
And I spent oh so many nights just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry, but now I hold my head up high

And you see me, somebody new
I’m not that chained up little person still in love with you
And so you felt like dropping in and just expect me to be free
But now I’m savin’ all my lovin’ for someone who’s lovin’ me

Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now
‘Cause you’re not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one who tried to break me with goodbye?
Did you think I’d crumble?
Did you think I’d lay down and die?

Oh no not I, I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all my life to live
I’ve got all my love to give
And I’ll survive
I will survive
Oh

Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now
‘Cause you’re not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one who tried to break me with goodbye?
Did you think I’d crumble?
Did you think I’d lay down and die?

Oh no not I, I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all my life to live
I’ve got all my love to give
And I’ll survive
I will survive
I will survive

Bob Seger Old Time Rock n Roll

Just take those old records off the shelf
I’ll sit and listen to ’em by myself
Today’s music ain’t got the same soul
I like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Don’t try to take me to a disco
You’ll never even get me out on the floor
In ten minutes I’ll be late for the door
I like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes my soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Won’t go to hear ’em play a tango
I’d rather hear some blues or funky old soul
There’s only one sure way to get me to go
Start playing old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Call me a relic, call me what you will
Say I’m old-fashioned, say I’m over the hill
Today’s music ain’t got the same soul
I like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes the soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes my soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes my soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes my soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old-time rock ‘n’ roll

I Can Help – Música

I Can Help” is a song written and performed by Billy Swan. Released in July 1974, the song was a big crossover smash, reaching No. 1 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Country Singles charts late that fall.

However, Swan had continued success as a songwriter for other artists and as a session musician.

Billy Swan – I can help

If you got a problem, don’t care what it is
If you need a hand, I can assure you this
I can help, I got two strong arms
I can help
It would sure do me good, to do you good
Let me help

It’s a fact that people get lonely, ain’t nothing new
But a woman like you, baby should never have the blues
Let me help, I got two for me
It would sure do me good, to do you good
Let me help

When I go to sleep at night you’re always a part of my dream
Holding me tight and telling me everything I wanna hear
Don’t forget me baby, all you gotta do is call
You know how I feel about ya, if I can do anything at all
Let me help, if your child needs a daddy, I can help
It would sure do me good to do you good
Let me help

[Musical Interlude]

When I go to sleep at night you’re always a part of my dream
Holding me tight and telling me everything I wanna hear
Don’t forget me baby, all you gotta do is call
You know how I feel about you, if I can do anything at all
Let me help, if your child needs a daddy, I can help
It would sure do me good to do you good
Let me help

Heaven must be missing an angel
Missing one angel, child, ’cause you’re here with me right now
(Your love is heavenly, baby)
(Heavenly to me, baby)

Your kiss, filled with tenderness
I want all I can get of your sexiness
Showers, your love comes in showers
And every hour on the hour
You let me feel your loving power

There’s a rainbow over my shoulder (ooh, ooh)
When you came, my cup runneth over (ooh, ooh)
You gave me your heavenly love
And if one night you hear crying from above

Blondie – Heart Of Glass

“Heart Of Glass”

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

In between
What I find is pleasing and I’m feeling fine
Love is so confusing there’s no peace of mind
If I fear I’m losing you it’s just no good
You teasing like you do

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

Lost inside
Adorable illusion and I cannot hide
I’m the one you’re using, please don’t push me aside
We could’ve made it cruising, yeah

Yeah, riding high on love’s true bluish light

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out I had a heart of glass [radio version]
Soon turned out to be a pain in the ass [album version]
Seemed like the real thing only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

In between
What I find is pleasing and I’m feeling fine
Love is so confusing there’s no peace of mind
If I fear I’m losing you it’s just no good
You teasing like you do

Well I tried to make it sunday, but I got so damn depressed
That I set my sights on monday and I got myself undressed
I ain’t ready for the altar but I do agree there’s times
When a woman sure can be a friend of mine

Well, I keep on thinkin’ ’bout you, sister golden hair surprise
And I just can’t live without you, can’t you see it in my eyes?
I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find
But it doesn’t mean you ain’t been on my mind

Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
Well I tried to fake it, I don’t mind sayin’, I just can’t make it

Well, I keep on thinkin’ ’bout you, sister golden hair surprise
And I just can’t live without you, can’t you see it in my eyes?
Now I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find
But it doesn’t mean you ain’t been on my mind

Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
Well I tried to fake it, I don’t mind sayin’, I just can’t make it

Simon & Garfunkel – Baby Driver

My daddy was the family bassman
My mamma was an engineer
And I was born one dark gray morn
With music coming in my ears
In my ears

They call me Baby Driver
And once upon a pair of wheels
Hit the road and I’m gone
What’s my number?
I wonder how your engines feel

Ba ba ba ba
Scoot down the road
What’s my number?
I wonder how your engines feel
Shine the light

My daddy was a prominent frogman
My mamma’s in the Naval Reserve
When I was young, I carried a gun
But I never got the chance to serve
I did not serve

They call me Baby Driver
And once upon a pair of wheels
Hit the road and I’m gone
What’s my number?
I wonder how your engines feel

Ba ba ba ba
Scoot down the road
What’s my number?
I wonder how your engines feel

My daddy got a big promotion
My mama got a raise in pay
There’s no-one home, we’re all alone
Oh come into my room and play
Yes, we can play

I’m not talking about your pigtails
But I’m talking ’bout your sex appeal
Hit the road and I’m gone
What’s my number?
I wonder how your engines
Ba ba ba ba
Scoot down the road
What’s my number?
I wonder how your engines feel
