One Song.

Dancer/Holy Ground - by Iroshi
Today, I want an exuberant song. Please post a favorite joyful, exuberant song in comments. :)

Here's mine: Great Big Sea, "Can't Stop Falling". :)




I wasn't looking for a lover,
I wasn't looking for a friend
I wasn't working undercover, wasn't trying to pretend
But when you walked across the dance floor,
just like the moon across the sky
I knew that I would have to see more,
knew that I would have to try
One look into your eyes, and I realize...

[Chorus]
Oh no I can't stop falling
My heart betrays me
And I know I'll start to feel it all again
Won't someone save me

She jumped aboard the brown line,
I accidentally caught her eye
She told me she was born a Libra,
I told her I was Gemini
She made suggestive conversation,
then she lightly brushed my hand
Overcome by her temptations,
we jumped off down by the strand
And in the English night, I realize it again...

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
She asks me to come inside,
we can just talk for a while
I wonder if I should
but her touch, her touch, it feels so good...

But I look into your eyes, and I realize it again.

[Chorus]

Dancing Lessons

Lyrics:

I wanna go wallking with you
If you'd agree
I wanna do some talking with you
Where no one can see
I wanna go dancing darling
If you agree
I think I'll feel a safe step darling
If you were with me

And when you wrap your arms around me
When you take me close and say
That you're so happy and glad you found me
You take my rainy days and make them go away

Long time I've been thinking of you
Do you think of me too?
Long time I've been dreaming of you
Make this dream come true
Long time I've been wondering about this
Can this really exist
I swear I feel a peaceful feeling
In the warmth of your kiss

And when you wrap your arms around me
When you take me close and say
That you're so glad you found me
You take my rainy days and make them go away

On this journey may the good lord guide us
And may the goddess dance beside us

And when you wrap your arms around me
When you take me close and say
That you're so glad you found me
You take my rainy days and make them go away

And when you wrap your arms around me
When you take me close and say
That you're so glad you found me
You take my rainy days and make them go away

The energy of this one makes it something I can listen to on repeat over, and over, and over again.

Kinnie Starr: Praise!

I'd link to a lyrics site, but every single one of them has the lyrics wrong (and some of them terribly so!). But google an mp3 site and listen, I think you'll like the song (I can't link to those from work).
9th-Jul-2009 03:26 pm (UTC) - Dance Me 'Round
I heard this from an a cappella group; I honestly don't know the original recording, and I can't find a recording online. Here's the lyrics; I can sing it for you (or your voiceposting number if you gave that to me!).

Lui Collins: Dance Me 'Round

You make my heart beat.
You make my head spin.
You make my eyes glow.
You make me warm from within.
Well, I have been in love before, but
I have never known the likes of this.
So lover, dance me 'round once more,
Dance me 'round and show me what I've missed.

You make my feet dance
You make my heart sing.
You make my eyes see.
You make me warm from within.
My toes start tapping when I hear your voice.
A smile lights your face, its music makes me whole.
So lover, dance me 'round once more.
Dance me 'round, we're dancing soul to soul.

You make the stars shine.
You make the clouds depart.
You make the moon glow.
You make the joy well up in my heart.
With winter solstice on its way, the sun's
shining brighter than it ever did in May.
So lover, dance me 'round once more,
Dance me 'round and 'round the floor
You show me and I'll show you the way.

my *main* boingboingboing song is 'When I'm Up (I can't get down)' but since you've gone the Great Big Sea route...

Jenny Says by Cowboy Mouth.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hSfHGXNACA

Jenny says turn off the radio
Jenny says turn off the light
Jenny says turn off the video
You beat yourself up to bring yourself down
Let it go, let it go, LET IT GO!
Let it go, let it go, LET IT GO!
When the world keeps coming down on me, I...
LET IT GO!

(I also have a thing for Game of Love by Santana featuring Michelle Branch, but really, the lyrics aren't cheery per se, but it's bouncy and exuberant and I like it for that.)

While you're listening to GBS, how about The Night Pat Murphy Died?

It's a night I'll never forget.
