Sinéad O’ConnorNothing Compares 2U. (January 1990)

It’s been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away
Since you been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues

‘Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you

It’s been so lonely without you here
Like a bird without a song
Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
Tell me baby where did I go wrong
I could put my arms around every boy I see
But they’d only remind me of you
I went to the doctor and guess what he told me
Guess what he told me
He said girl you better try to have fun
No matter what you do
But he’s a fool

‘Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you

All the flowers that you planted, mama
In the back yard
All died when you went away
I know that living with you baby was sometimes hard
But I’m willing to give it another try

Nothing compares
Nothing compares to you


Phil CollinsAnother Day In Paradise. (October 1989)

She calls out to the man on the street
“Sir, can you help me?
It’s cold and I’ve nowhere to sleep
There’s somewhere you can tell me?”

He walks on, doesn’t look back
He pretends he can’t hear her
He starts to whistle as he crosses the street
Seems embarrassed to be there

Oh, think twice, it’s another day for you and me in paradise
Oh, think twice, it’s another day for you, you and me in paradise

Just think about it

She calls out to the man on the street
He can see she’s been cryin’
She’s got blisters on the soles of her feet
She can’t walk but she’s tryin’

Oh, think twice, it’s another day for you and me in paradise
Oh, think twice, it’s just another day for you, you and me in paradise
Just think about it

Oh Lord, is there nothing more anybody can do?
Oh Lord, there must be something you can say

You can tell from the lines on her face
You can see that she’s been there
Probably been moved on from every place
‘Cause she didn’t fit in there

Oh, think twice, it’s another day for you and me in paradise
Oh, think twice, it’s just another day for you, you and me in paradise

Just think about it

Think about it

It’s just another day for you and me in paradise
It’s just another day for you and me in paradise (paradise)

Just think about it (paradise)
Just think about it

MadonnaLike A Virgin. (November 1984)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s__rX_WL100

I made it through the wilderness
Somehow I made it through
Didn’t know how lost I was
Until I found you

I was beat incomplete
I’d been had, I was sad and blue
But you made me feel
Yeah, you made me feel, shiny and new

Like a virgin
Touched for the very first time
Like a virgin
When your heart beats
Next to mine

Gonna give you all my love, boy
My fear is fading fast
Been saving it all for you
‘Cause only love can last

You’re so fine and you’re mine
Make me strong, yeah, you make me bold
Oh, your love thawed out
Yeah, your love thawed out
What was getting cold
Like a virgin, hey
Touched for the very first time
Like a virgin
With your heartbeat
Next to mine

You’re so fine and you’re mine
I’ll be yours ’til the end of time
‘Cause you made me feel
Yeah, you made me feel
I’ve nothing to hide

Like a virgin
Touched for the very first time
Like a virgin
With your heartbeat
Next to mine

Like a virgin, like a virgin
Feels so good inside
When you hug me
And your heartbeats, and you love me

(Oo,Oo,Oo,Oo,Oo,Oo,Oo,Oo,Oo,
Oo,Oo,Oo, Baby, Yeah,
Can your hear my heartbeat
For the very first time)

Michael JacksonThriller. (December 1983)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hG6oy46qKE4

It’s close to midnight
Something evil’s lurkin’ in the dark
Under the moonlight
You see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream
But terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze
As horror looks you right between the eyes
You’re paralyzed

You hear the door slam
And realize there’s nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand
And wonder if you’ll ever see the sun
You close your eyes
And hope that this is just imagination
Girl, but all the while
You hear a creature creeping up behind
You’re out of time

[Rap]
The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller

‘Cause this is thriller
Thriller night
And no one’s gonna save you
From the beast about to strike
You know it’s thriller
Thriller night
You’re fighting for your life
Inside a killer
Thriller tonight

‘Cause this is thriller
Thriller night
Girl, I can thrill you more
Than any ghoul would ever dare try
Thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight
And share a killer, thriller

John Travolta & Olivia Newton-JohnGreaseYou’re the one that I want. (May 1978)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oKPYe53h78

I got chills, they’re multiplying
And I’m losing control
‘Cause the power, you’re supplying
It’s electrifying!

You better shape up, ’cause I need a man
And my heart is set on you
You better shape up, you better understand
To my heart I must be true
Nothing left, nothing left for me to do

You’re the one that I want
You are the one I want
Oo,Oo,Oo honey

You’re the one that I want
You are the one I want
Oo, Oo, Oo honey

You’re the one that I want
You are the one I want
Oo, Oo, Oo, the one that I need
Oh yes indeed

If you’re filled with affection
You’re too shy to convey
Meditate my direction
Feel your way
I better shape up, ’cause you need a man
I need a man who can keep me satisfied
I better shape up, if I’m gonna prove
You better prove that my faith is justified
Are you sure? Yes I’m sure down deep inside

You’re the one that I want
You are the one I want
Oo, Oo, Oo honey

You’re the one that I want
You are the one I want
Oo, Oo, Oo honey

You’re the one that I want
You are the one I want
Oo, Oo, Oo, the one that I need
Oh yes indeed



You’re the one that I want
You are the one I want
Oo, Oo, Oo honey

You’re the one that I want

Frank Sinatra“Theme from New York New York”. (June 1977)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YjIsUc4Ank

Start spreadin’ the news
I’m leavin’ today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York

These Vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York

I want to wake up in a city
That doesn’t sleep
And find I’m king of the hill
Top of the heap

These little town blues
Are melting away
I’ll make a brand new start of it
In old New York
If I can make it there
I’ll make it anywhere
It’s up to you
New York, New York
New York, New York

I want to wake up in a city
That never sleeps
And find I’m, “A” number one
Top of the list
King of the hill, “A” number one

These little town blues
Are melting away
I’m gonna make a brand new start of it
In old New York

And if I can make it there
I’m gonna make it anywhere
It’s up to you
New York, New York, New York
