The Best Elavator Music I Ever Heard!

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: ELEVATOR MUSIC

Yes…well…I think we heard plenty of “The Boy (or Girl) From Ipanema” a few weeks ago, so I thought I would choose a song by a band, that were very popular here in the UK back in the nineties. I once heard a music critic describe their repertoire as “elevator music”, which is why they are my song choice today. Best elevator music I ever heard!

The Cardigans – oh how we adored them! They were a welcome change from some of the Britpop heavy guitar chords of the nineties. The Cardigans waltzed into the charts and we embraced them. This is perhaps one of their most famous tracks “Lovefool“, because it was used in a couple of big movies.

This song brings back so many memories!!! I hope you enjoy it!

Dear, I fear we’re facing a problem
You love me no longer, I know
And maybe there is nothing
That I can do to make you do
Mama tells me I shouldn’t bother
That I ought to stick to another man
A man that surely deserves me
But I think you do!

So I cry, and I pray, and I beg

Love me, love me
Say that you love me
Fool me, fool me
Go on and fool me
Love me, love me
Pretend that you love me
Leave me, leave me
Just say that you need me

So, I cry, and I beg for you to

Love me, love me
Say that you love me
Leave me, leave me
Just say that you need me
I can’t care ’bout anything but you

Lately I have desperately pondered
Spent my nights awake and I wondered
What I could have done in another way
To make you stay
Reason will not lead to solution
I will end up lost in confusion
I don’t care if you really care
As long as you don’t go

So I cry, and I pray, and I beg

Love me, love me
Say that you love me
Fool me, fool me
Go on and fool me
Love me, love me
Pretend that you love me
Leave me, leave me
Just say that you need me

So I cry, and I beg for you to

Love me, love me
Say that you love me
Leave me, leave me
Just say that you need me
I can’t care ’bout anything but you

Anything but you

Love me, love me
Say that you love me
Fool me, fool me
Go on and fool me
Love me, love me
I know that you need me
I can’t care ’bout anything but you
