Today I thought I would share “Woman in Chains” by Tears for Fears. I blogged here about their album Seeds of Love when I shared its title track Sowing the Seeds of Love. For me, along with that song, “Woman in Chains”  is the  other great song on a pretty good album. 



  

Woman in Chains” features Phil Collins (of Genesis) on drums, and was released in 1989 and got to number 26 in the Disunited Kingdom singles charts and to 36 in the U.S. It is particularly noteworthy for the singing of Oleta Adams, whom the band had discovered in 1985 singing in a hotel bar in Kansas City. 


You better love loving and you better behave
You better love loving and you better behave
Woman in Chains
Woman in Chains

Calls her man the Great White Hope
Says she’s fine, she’ll always cope
Woman in Chains
Woman in Chains

Well I feel lying and waiting is a poor man’s deal
And I feel hopelessly weighed down by your eyes of steel
It’s a world gone crazy
Keeps Woman in Chains

Trades her soul as skin and bones
Sells the only thing she owns
Woman in Chains
Woman in Chains

Men of Stone
Men of Stone

Well I feel deep in your heart there are wounds Time can’t heals
And I feel somebody somewhere is trying to breathe
Well you know what I mean
It’s a world gone crazy
Keeps Woman in Chains
It’s under my skin but out of my hands
I’ll tear it apart but I won’t understand

I will not accept the Greatness of Man
It’s a world gone crazy
Keeps Woman in Chains
So Free Her
So Free Her



Here is a video of this great song. Enjoy!

Today I thought I would post this great song, “She Drives me Crazy” by Fine Young Cannibals. This was a hit in 1989, reaching number 5 in the Disunited Kingdom and number 1 in the USA. It is from their 1988 album “The Raw and the Cooked”.

The way I feel,
Things you do,
Don’t seem real.

Tell you what,
I got in mind,
‘Cause we’re runnin’,
Out of time,
Won’t you ever,
Set me free,
This waiting’ ’round’s,
Killeen’ me.

[Chorus]
She drives me crazy,
Uh uh,
Like no-one else,
Uh uh,
She drives me crazy,
And I can’t help myself,
Uh uh.

I can’t get,
Any rest,
People say,
I’m obsessed,
Every-thing,
That’s serious lasts,
But to me,
There’s no surprize,
What I have,
Fatal last truth,
Things go wrong,
They always do.

[Chorus]
She drives me crazy,
Uh uh,
Like no-one else,
Uh uh,
She drives me crazy,
And I can’t help myself,
Uh uh.

[Instrumental Section]

I won’t make it,
On my own,
No-one likes,
To be alone.

[Chorus]
She drives me crazy,
Uh uh,
Like no-one else,
Uh uh,
She drives me crazy,
And I can’t help myself,
Uh uh.

Chorus x2 to fade


Enjoy!
