I’m Spinning Around, Get Out Of My Way

fan.jpgJack told me which song he wanted me to feature on today’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY, and as you may be aware, I chose a different song! So I am going to be in trouble when he realizes. But that will be fun!

However, I happened to love Jack’s choice! It is a great dance track, by an artist who I was a huge fan of when I was a little girl. And Caramel is not ashamed to admit to still love Kylie Minogue’s tracks – despite generally not opting for poppy music anymore. Jack was at Glastonbury (he gets to go everywhere) and he said she was phenomenal. I believe him after watching clips on Youtube. I would have loved to be partying in my wellies at Glastonbury to Kylie!

…and this is Jack’s choice of song, which I highly approve of! Time to jump up on the dance floor, even if that means your living room carpet. I hope this track has you in a spin as much as it does to me and Jack! I read that it was originally intended for Paula Abdul, but the song was instead given to Kylie to record. I am glad they did!

And at the end of this post is Kylie at the legendary Glastonbury. Do check out the little pocket rocket on stage at Glastonbury…what a sensation!

And here is the treat…Kylie knows how to get the party going at Glastonbury!

Spinning around
Oooh-oh

I’m spinning around
Move out of my way
I know you’re feelin’ me ‘cuz you like it like this
I’m breakin’ it down
I’m not the same
I know you’re feelin’ me ‘cuz you like it like this

Clearin’ this house out of joy that I borrowed
From back in the day
Threw away my old clothes
Got myself a better wardrobe
I got something to say

I’m through with the past
Ain’t no point in looking back
The future will be
And did I forget to mention that I found a new direction
And it leads back to me?

I’m spinning around
Move out of my way
I know you’re feelin’ me ‘cuz you like it like this
I’m breakin’ it down
I’m not the same
I know you’re feelin’ me ‘cuz you like it

Mistakes that I made givin’ me the strength
To really believe
And no matter how I take it
There’s no way i’m gonna fake it ‘cuz it’s gotta be real

I’ve got nothin’ left to hide
No reason left to fight
‘Cuz the truth’s given me a new freedom inside
Gettin’ rid of my desire
Do you like what you see?

I’m spinning around
Move out of my way
I know you’re feelin’ me ‘cuz you like it like this
I’m breakin’ it down
I’m not the same
I know you’re feelin’ me ‘cuz you like it like this

Ooh-oh baby, baby, baby
You know you like it like this
Ooh-oh baby, baby, baby
You know you like it like this
Ooh-oh baby, baby, baby

I’m spinning around
Move out of my way
I know you’re feelin’ me ‘cuz you like it like this
I’m breakin’ it down
I’m not the same
I know you’re feelin’ me ‘cuz you like it like this

Oh, I’m not the same
You like it like this
Ooh-oh

Never Settle Down

Jack told me which song to feature today! He has chosen a great song! However, I am going to relegate his first choice to my second choice. So if later today nobody else has featured Jack’s choice, I will give it a spin. Jack loves music, and he thinks SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY is a great idea – he is right isn’t he! We love it! It’s great that Jim is providing us with some fabulous themes with a huge array of musical choice available for us to take our pick.

Instead of obeying Jack, I am going to feature a song that I thought could have also fitted in with another recent theme (I think it was  DRIFTER/VAGABOND?) Although, I would have a huge problem with the kind of man the song describes, the song itself just makes me laugh. I love it! I often find myself singing it just to amuse myself.

So ignore that the song makes the singer sound like a total sleazoid – just tap your feet and sing along to “The Wanderer” – as he tells us without any shame that he roams around around around, around!

Oh, well, I’m the type of guy who will never settle down
Where pretty girls are, well, you know that I’m around
I kiss ’em and I love ’em ’cause to me they’re all the same
I hug ’em and I squeeze ’em they don’t even know my name

They call me the wanderer
Yeah, the wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around

Oh, well, there’s Flo on my left and there’s Mary on my right
And Janie is the girl, well, that I’ll be with tonight
And when she asks me, which one I love the best?
I tear open my shirt and I show her “Rosie” on my chest

‘Cause I’m a wanderer
Yeah, the wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around

Oh, well, I roam from town to town
I go through life without a care
And I’m as happy as a clown
I with my two fists of iron but I’m going nowhere

I’m the type of guy that likes to roam around
I’m never in one place, I roam from town to town
And when I find myself fallin’ for some girl
Yeah, I hop right into that car of mine, I drive around the world

Yeah I’m a wanderer
Yeah, a wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around

Oh yeah, I’m the type of guy that likes to roam around
I’m never in one place, I roam from town to town
And when I find myself a-fallin’ for some girl
I hop right into that car of mine and drive around the world

‘Cause I’m a wanderer
Yeah, the wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around

Yeah, I’m the wanderer
Yeah, I’m a wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around

They call me the wanderer
Yeah, I’m a wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around
