Jimmy Radcliffe - Long After Tonight Is All Over


Jimmy Radcliffe - Long After Tonigh Is All Over (composed by David-Bacharach)

Musicor, 1042 (1964)

Tonight with you for the first time
I have learned what my lips are for
And darling now that I've kissed you
I'm craving to kiss you more
Let me tell you...

Long after tonight is all over
Long after tonight is all gone
I'll be yours, for ever and a day I'm yours,
come anything that may
You'll always be just everything to me

Here in my arms when I hold you
I can feel that the world is mine
Don't go away, don't you leave me
Or I'll cry til' the end of time
Let me tell you...

Long after tonight is all over
Long after it's all gone
I'll be yours
Come anything that may and I'm yours for ever and a day
Youll always be just everything to me

Garnet Mimms - Looking For You



Garnet Mimms - Looking For You

* United Artists, 951 (1965)

Looking For You... Everywhere !

I miss the touch of your fingertips
The burnin' fire of your sweet lips
How can I go on like this, baby I need you

Since the day you left me
I'm findin' lonely memory
Make it how it used to be

I stop in places we used to go
Ask if they've seen you, well nobody knows
I look for you up and down the street

That's why I'm Looking For You... Everywhere !

There's a pain inside me
Cause' I need you so desperately
I want more than memories

Patti Austin - Loosen Up Your Heart



Loosen Up Your Heart & let me love you

Hey little blue boy, stop your sighing

You're much too handsome to be crying

The world's not coming to an end

You're about to fall in love again


I know you'd be hurt and so rightly

That another girl took your love so lightly

& now you say in love's a game

But every girl is not the same


Just like your love let me down

And so I know how if feeled to be lonely

Don't you know we needed each other so

And I could show you if you're lonely only


Loosen Up Your Heart
and let me love you

Willie Hightower - Because I Love You


Another song from "Soothers & Movers" on Goldmine (only 2 copies in The Mighty Milky Way & I know these pals). Never bored of this compilation, like the old saying goes : "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".

Why am I always doin' everything you tell me to do ?
Why am I always going out of my way to please you ?

Why do I let you treat me in the way you desire ?
Never do anything about it, all I have do is sittin' and cryin'

I give up my fortune, I give up my faith
Before I would take a chance of losing you baby
Don't you know I give up anything ?

Why whatever you need me
All I do is cry
That's the way it goes, baby
Here's the reason why

Because I Love You (Because He Loves Her)

Pour une poignée de scènes... #1


La fameuse scène du pamplemousse in your face dans l’un des films qui pose les bases du film de gangster “The Public Enemy” de William A. Wellman (1931) … Comme l’histoire bégaie et a souvent la mémoire défaillante, aujourd’hui tout le monde revendique l’idée : Cagney, Wellman le réalisateur ou bien Darryl Zanuck l’un des pontes de la Warner, mais rendons à César ce qui blah blah…

L’idée leur est venu d’un fait divers faisant les gros titres dans les journaux d’un célèbre gangster Earl “Hymie” Weiss n’en pouvant du blah blah blah de sa petite amie finit par lui écraser l’omelette qu’elle venait de lui cuisiner dans la gueule ! C’était l’époque où les exploits des gangsters s’affichaient en grande pompe dans les journaux américains et suscitant un big écho, un peu à la manière du mauvais gouts des peoples qui se vautrent partout à notre époque… Le parallèle étant que ce sont des personnes étalant leurs merdes que nous avalons subjuguée parce que ça brille…

Ca n’a pas l’air comme ça mais c’est une scène d’une VIOLENCE ! Personne n’avait jamais vu ça à l’écran et encore moins des personnages se complaisant là dedans.

Dans son autobiographie, Cagney raconte qu’il y avait toujours un petit malin pour lui commander une assiette de pamplemousses au resto… Il évoque aussi que la scène en question faisait beaucoup rire le mari de l’actrice qui se prend le pamplemousse alors que leur couple n’était pas au mieux.

J’adore Cagney… Lorsque j’ai découvert ce type, je ne vivais plus que dans l’attente du prochain film que je verrais avec lui… The Public Enemy est le film qui fait de lui une star. Hollywood cherchant à ne pas être dans l’oeil du cyclone, trouvera petit à petit ses marques avec une “morale” bien américaine, Cagney suivra la même évolution et après avoir joué les méchants, il sera dans le camp qui les traque ("'G' Men 1935") puis dans des comédies (parfois musicales comme "Yankee Doodle Dandy" 1942). Mais à jamais, ça sera un Tough Guy, une pile électrique, un jeu extraverti. Tough Guy un jour, Tough Guy toujours.

J’étais bien tenté de mettre la scène finale mais… euh c’est la fin^^ - ça m’a jamais dérangé qu’on me vende les ficelles d’un film parce que ce qui compte c’est comment l’histoire nous est contée, rien à foutre des surprises du scénario.

Chuck Wood - 7 Days Too Long

(That's the B-Side of "Seven Days Too Long")

First time I called you girl
They say you wasn't home
Then second time I tried it
They say you won't be left alone

We have a lot of quarrels yes we have
Like all lovers do
I'm ready to make up
It's all of left to you now

Seven Days Too Long without you baby
Come on back to me now

I feel so break up because i'm alive
Cause' my love is too strong girl to let it down
The source of problem
Cause I see the danger sign you know
It's ripped on your face
Justice (...)

Let's stop playing girl I go sick
i can't stand being without you baby another week
You got me soured, I can't even concentrate
You know good things come, I say good things come (...)
I can't wait no longer listen to me girl


Seven Days Too Long Without You Baby

Dobie Gray - Out On The Floor


Out on the floor each night, I'm really movin'
The band's is wailin' right i feel like groovin'
The chicks are out of sight and i am grooving
The crowd is in tonight beggin' for more

I am on the floor tonight, I feel like singin
The beat is running right and guitars are ringin'
I'm really on tonight and everything swingin'
The room is packed out tight, light at the door

I Get My Kicks Out On The Floor

When I'm out on the floor, it makes me feel like a king,
Everybody here, don't you know what I mean
It makes me wanna move (makes me wanna move).
It makes me feel that groove (make me feel that groove).
I wanna twist and shout (makes me twist and shout).
Work it on out (make me work it on out)

James Fountain - Seven Day Lover




Thanks to Ian Levine for this gem, Sweet Soul Man.

The O'Jays - No Time For You


No Time For You


It's been long time since I've held you in my ams,
And even longer time since I've felt the magic of your charms
,
You did me wrong and now you see long til' come back home,


I'ts been a long time since you took the first place,
Even longer time since my love for you is sustainend
,
But you treated me bad & now you've lost the only love you've had


No Time For You (baby believe me when i say i've got no time no time for you
)

Your love was something baby, (...)
I don' t want to see you
, I'm gonna leave you behind

It's been a long time since you broke you broke my heart,
Even longer time girl since we we've been apart,
And now my heart is (...) I've got to find myself another girl
