Beware, folks ! Be ready to purchase Dan Sartain's new album "Too Tough To Love", due to release on January 30, 2012. Jane is going to be featured on the song "Now Now Now". Can't wait to hear a new song with Jane ! More details here.

Besides this great news, there have been some articles here and there worth reading :

- "80's darlings Go-Go's prove they still got the beat" (Goldmine)
A nice overview of the band's rise, demise and resurrection.

- "Old Music : Jane Wiedlin's "Rush Hour" (Guardian)
A flashback on Jane's biggest solo hit.

- "Gina Shock of the Go-Go's : Lips Unsealed" (Rockerzine)
A great interview of Gina. She talks about her early drumming days with Edith Massey and the Go-Go's, her favourite Go-Go's albums and the music industry today.

- And of course, you can still read Sarah Kramer's summer 2011 journal in case you missed it !

He's So Strange easter egg

I discovered something today while using the track on my music editor. I added some filters and played with the equalizer and was surprised to hear a laugh at the end of the intro (0:11) ! Who do you think is laughing ?

Jane Wiedlin - Fur (album lyrics)


INSIDE A DREAM
(Jane Wiedlin, Gardner Cole)

This is not an easy life
It’s hard to hang on to hope
There’s so many things need to change
Well I wonder how we’ll cope

But I know where to go
Run away run away

And lose myself inside a dream
Opening up a secret door
I lose myself inside a dream
And find a world worth living for

There is way too much to grasp
Am I losing hold
In a world full of many problems
I feel no control

But I know where to go
Run away run away

And lose myself inside a dream
Opening up a secret door
I lose myself inside a dream
And find a world worth living for
I lose myself inside a dream
Opening up a secret door
I lose myself inside my dream
And find a world worth living for

Only the dreamer
Can keep the hope alive
I’ll work and pray and sweat and slave
Until the dream is realized

Yes I know where to go
Run away run away

(Keep dreaming on, keep dreaming on
Find a world worth living for)

RUSH HOUR
(Jane Wiedlin, Peter Rafelson)

Something’s coming over me
I’m so dizzy I can’t see
Can’t make out the forest for the trees

My heart is beating faster now
As the traffic’s slowing down
And suddenly I’m all alone with you

It’s so good
Baby when you’re at the wheel
I can’t believe the way I feel
It’s such a rush
Just being with you

We’re driving in the Rush Hour
(ooh you send me)
You take me to the Rush Hour
(ooh you send me)
You got me in the Rush Hour

Feel it getting hot in here
Feel me getting close to you dear
Slow motion moving you moving me

Now your lips are touching mine
And in your eyes that certain shine
Honey I know just where you’re taking me

ONE HEART ONE WAY
(Jane Wiedlin, Peter Rafelson)

(One heart, one way, together)

When I was young
In all my books love never failed
People kept telling me
Love doesn’t last – life is no fairytale

You and I we were both looking for
The same thing not selfish love but
True love

One heart one way
That’s the way that
We’ll go through this life
Together
You make me dream
Eyes wide open
You make me believe again
In true love

Time is so short
Every memory a gift to treasure
Faith has returned
You brought me dreams – hope beyond measure

You and I we were both looking for
The same thing not empty love but
True love

(One heart, one way, together)

HOMEBOY
(Jane Wiedlin, Lundt, Swirsky)

He’s the finest in the neighbourhood
He’s sweet-talking and he’s looking good

But don’t you be messing with him
Better count your blessings girl
And if you like your pretty face
You'd best stay away from his place

Homeboy, homeboy
Well you’d better get off the street
Of my homeboy
Homeboy (you best behave)
Homeboy (stay out of his way)
Well you better stay off the turf
Of my homeboy

Everybody knows that we’re together
He told me that we’ll be in love forever

So if you don’t give up
I’m gonna gang up on you baby
And if you care about your health
Keep you sticky fingers to yourself

Homeboy (you best behave)
Homeboy (stay out of his way)
Well you’d better get off the street
Of my homeboy
Homeboy (you gotta cool it down)
Homeboy (you don’t fool around)
Well you better stay off the turf
Of my homeboy

Don’t you be messing with him
Better count your blessings girl
And if you care about your health
Keep you sticky fingers to yourself

THE END OF LOVE
(Jane Wiedlin, Stephen Hague)

We still talk
And when I joke
Your eyes still smile at me
We still walk
Like lovers walk
Anyone can see

But deep inside I feel cold
I know you feel it too

Is this the end of love ?
When love like day seems fleeting
What is the end of love ?
Two heart no longer meeting

Though we’re together
You hold yourself apart
Is this the end of love ?
Is it the end ?

Though we’re together
We hold ourselves apart
Is this the end of love ?
Is it the end ?
Is this the end of love ?
Is it the end ?
Is this the end of love ?
Is it the end ?

LOVER'S NIGHT
(Jane Wieldin, Peter Rafelson)

Tonight is lover’s night
Feel the heat in the air
Everybody’s gonna be all right
Leave behind their cares
Look around you boy – the stars are out
The moon is over the sea
There’s a sparkle in the ocean
In everyone you see

On lover’s night
There’s something special
Make a dream come true
On lover’s night
I wish the night would last forever more
Together with you

Tonight we celebrate
Dancing under the sky
Got no more time for hate
We’re singing it good-bye
So we make a vow and we cross our hearts
And we’re sealing it with a kiss
Every single night from this moment on
Will be lover’s night like this

All around the world
It's time for love
And every boy and girl
Is shined on from above, from above

FUR
(Jane Wiedlin, Gardner Cole)

I’ve always said my love
Was a precious thing
Worth a lot more than
The presents you bring
Flowers are fine
And candy is so sweet
But your latest offering will bring you
Back on the street

I don’t wear fur
Won’t do it
Fur’s for fools
I'm too cool
I don’t wear fur
Won’t do it
Don’t wear fur

Diamonds by the yard
I guess they’re okay
When the honeymoon is over
I can pawn ‘em anyway
But this fur coat business
Isn’t very funny
Can’t you find a better way
Of wasting your money ?

I’m not saying money
Can’t buy you love
But you can prove you want me
Without spilling blood
Stop and think a minute baby
And listen to me
Fur coats on people
Are history

I don’t wear fur
Won’t do it
Fur’s for fools
I'm too cool
I don’t wear fur
When will you think it ? Think of it !
I don’t wear fur

I don’t wear fur
Won’t do it
Fur’s not cool
I'm not a fool
I don’t wear fur
Won’t do it
Don’t wear fur

GIVE !
(Jane Wiedlin, Peter Rafelson)

You’re an island I don’t understand
Being so alone doesn’t make a man, make a man
C’mon let it out be a hero
Keep it inside you wind up with zero

Don't analyse or compromise just
Give ! I’ll give you everything you want
Give ! I’ll give you everything you need
Let me let you give yourself to me

All of your life you’ve been really tough
But in these days it just ain’t enough, ain’t enough

I know I can be just as strong as you
Now you’ve gotta learn to be tender too, tender too

Don't analyse or compromise just
Give ! I’ll give you everything you want
Give ! I’ll give you everything you need
Let me let you give yourself to me
Give yourself to me
I’ll give you everything

SONG OF THE FACTORY
(Jane Wiedlin, Wooley, Stephen Hague)

It is cold
But it is warm
It is one
But not alone
There is beauty
In the beast
It is endless
It is home

Listen to the promise calling me
Can you hear the song of the factory
Can you hear the song of the factory

Always moving
Never leaving
It is words
Beyond meaning
You can feel it
If you try
It has rhythm
Without seeming

Listen to the promise calling me
Can you hear the song of the factory
Listen to the promise inside me
Can you hear the song of the factory
Can you hear the song of the factory

WHATEVER IT TAKES
(Jane Wiedlin, Kessler, Simms)

Look up at the stars
And tell me it’s not possible
How can you despair
When around you is a miracle
Love flows through our life
Like blood in our veins

Whatever it takes
I will be there to give you
Whatever it takes
I will be there

Look into my eyes
I could tell your prophecy
Of such strange desire
Of promises and destiny
Now and forever
The unbroken vow

Whatever it takes
I will be there to give it
Whatever it takes
I will be there to live it
Whoever you need
I am the one that knows you
Wherever you go
I will be there
For you always for you
For you always for you

Love flows through our life
Like blood in our veins

Whatever it takes
I will be there to give you
Whatever it takes
I will be there and if you’ve
Forgotten the way
I will be there to show you
Whenever you need me
I will be there
I will be there
I will be there

New KV online store


Kathy has opened an online store on her official website, where digital copies of these albums can be purchased :

- Delphines - Cosmic Speed (2001)
- Kathy Valentine - Light Years (2005)
- BlueBonnets - Boom Boom Boom Boom (2010)

5.99$ each ! Not too much for these gems.

This is great news for KV's fans, as Cosmic Speed and BBBB are quite hard to find on CD. Only the first 1997 Delphines album remains missing, but this one's really easy to find.

As a bonus, digital booklets are included. One question : do the Cosmic Speed and BBBB digital booklets include the song lyrics ? The physical booklets don't.

The Whole World Lost Its Head 2007 (new lyrics)


For their 2007 Halloween Tour, the band granted us a brand new version of The Whole World Lost Its Head :

Fish can only grow on farms
The ozone up and went
The village idiot became
The US President
Fashion is for skeletons
Rehad is for kicks
Jesus is a preacher
With a tattoed 666

I read it in the paper
I see it on my TV
Has the whole world lost it's head ? (Is it just me ?)
Has the whole world lost it's head ? (Is it just me ?)
Has the whole world lost it's head ?

Kids are burning pirate discs
And popping Ritalin
American Idol tops the charts
Cuz karaoke’s in
Zsa Zsa’s prince thinks he’s a daddy
Britney’s come undone
And the billionaire Olson twins
Dress like homeless bums

I read it in the paper
I see it on my TV
Has the whole world lost it's head ? (Is it just me ?)
Has the whole world lost it's head ? (Is it just me ?)
Has the whole world lost it's head ?

I read it in the paper
I see it on my TV
Has the whole world lost it's head ? (Is it just me ?)
Has the whole world lost it's head ? (Is it just me ?)
Has the whole world lost it's head ? (Is it just me ?)
Has the whole world lost it's head ?
Lost it's head
Lost it's head
Lost it's head

Focus On... Jane Wiedlin - Selftitled album


Let's talk about some Go-Go's going solo. It took me years to listen to my first solo stuff after I became a fan of the band, but I wasn't disappointed. The girls each had very different careers, which make for quite a rich whole music session !

Jane Wiedlin is the first solo album to come out in 1985, nearly exactly a year after she left the Go-Go's. The result is brilliant, with the typical Jane touch is most of the songs. The sythpop-oriented production might make it sound dated nowadays, but the songs are so good it's no big deal.

The tracklist of the album :

01 - Blue Kiss
02 - Goodbye Cruel World
03 - Sometimes You Really Get On My Nerves
04 - East Meets West
05 - Somebody's Going To Get Into This House
06 - Forever
07 - Modern Romance
08 - I Will Wait For You
09 - One Hundred Years Of Solitude
10 - Where We Can Go
11 - My Traveling Heart

No B-Sides or outtakes available. Only 3 remixes of Blue Kiss were released on the 12'' single.

My goal is to talk about the album and to make it known by people who might not know much about the Go-Go's side stuff. So here are some songs from Jane Wiedlin you can listen to :

BLUE KISS
The first and only single of the album.

SOMETIMES YOU REALLY GET ON MY NERVES
One of my favourite songs.

WHERE WE CAN GO
This would have made an awesome second single. I love to sing it along out loud in my car ! To me this song is the closest to the Go-Go's sound.

MY TRAVELING HEART
A beautiful and original "syth-celtic" song (I'm from Brittany, by the way). One of your masterpieces Jane !

Jane Wiedlin - Jane Wiedlin (album lyrics)

(My thoughts are with you Jane.)



BLUE KISS


(Randall Kirsch, Jane Wiedlin)

A blue kiss colouring me goodbye
A new kiss could never feel so fine
Tomorrow I’ll be leaving in black and white

Why does it have to be such a blue kiss
When I kiss you
Now I colour my world with a blue kiss
I’ve got kisses for you

Red lips kissing away my fears 
A blue kiss bringing me back to tears

Why does it have to be such a blue kiss
Yeah these kisses are blue
Now I colour my world with a blue kiss
I’ve got kisses for you

A prism of love surrounded us
Don’t you see what our hearts knew
How can you choose a one colour world
When you know that I’ve got a rainbow for you

Last night a spectrum filled the sky
(I miss you)
This morning is sheltered with your goodbye
(I love you)

Why did it have to be such a blue kiss
Yeah these kisses were blue
Now I colour my world with a blue kiss
I’ve got kisses for you

GOODBYE CRUEL WORLD


(Jane Wiedlin, Michael Lord)

Let’s dream it away…
Think it away…
No more children hungry or bruised
No more land raped and abused
No animals hunted for fun
It’s time to undo the damage we’ve done
No more people split by their colour
No nations hating each other
No women trapped by their sex
No experiments that end in death

Let’s dream it away
Think it away
Put the power back in our hands
Dream it away
Think it away
Use the power in the mind of man
To say goodbye 
Goodbye cruel world

Is it so naïve to believe in love
Why build bombs we’ve got more than enough
The planet’s ours to use or destroy
Why rob life when life is joy

Wave goodbye to the past
The whole world looking up at last
We’ll work towards the future with all our might
We’ve got the power to make things right

No more doctors saving the bank
No world leaders telling us who to thank
No one locked in the chains of liberty
No more graves dug from charity

SOMETIMES YOU REALLY GET ON MY NERVES

(Jane Wiedlin, Michael Lord)

I dreamed you brought in fuel for the fire
Must’ve been right cause it’s getting hot
Stony silence into stormy battle
Anger is no weapon we can handle
I never dreamed I could get so mad
Must have stockpiled for this war with you
In the confusion signals mix up
That’s when we lose it and it blows up

We get petty and we get mean
When I want some quiet
You wanna scream 
I make you crazy but you make it worse
Sometimes you really get on my nerves
Sometimes you really get on my nerves

Every cup and saucer broken
Like the promises we’ve made
I refuse to talk about world problems
Until we make some peace at home

Why the hell do we get so mean
When I want some quiet
You’re ready to scream
I make you crazy but you make it worse
Sometimes you really get on my nerves
Sometimes you really get on my nerves, my nerves, my nerves

I never dreamed I could get so mad
Must have saved up for this war with you
In the confusion signals mix up
That’s when we lose it and it all blows up

Why the hell do we get so mean
When you want some quiet
I wanna to scream
You make me crazy but I make it worse
Sometimes you really get on my nerves
Sometimes you really get on my nerves
We get petty and we get mean
When I want some quiet
You’re ready to scream 
I make you crazy but you make it worse
Sometimes you really get on my nerves
Sometimes you really get on my nerves

EAST MEETS WEST


(Jane Wiedlin)

I spent my last one thousand yen
(That’s four dollars cowboys)
On a Clint Eastwood tape
And sped across this eastern land
In a silver bullet train
Listening all the way
To the soundtrack of a western
I’d never seen
And I came to this conclusion

East meets west and it goes bang
It’s all so foreign to me, well
East meets west and it is split worse
It is so foreign to me

I have heard tall tall tales
On longhorns raised on sake
While somewhere on another range
Indians go thirsty

I’m a cowgirl in a shrine
Where they applaud eight million gods
Eight million folks watch Solid Gold
That’s what they cheer
Where I come from

East meets west and it goes bang
It’s all so foreign to me, well
East meets west
It’s all foreign

Higashi to nishiga atano
Coco wagaikoko
Higashi ga nishini
A ta noyo
East meets west and it goes bang
It’s all so foreign to me
East meets west it is split worse
It is so foreign to me

SOMEBODY’S GOING TO GET INTO THIS HOUSE

(Randall Kirsch)

I put good locks up on all the doors
Long sticks are lying behind windows
Still I know it won’t keep you in
Not if you don’t want to heaven knows
The dog is not into crying wolf
The guard is shock trained to stop himself
If he gets the urge to come in
I’ve used the same tricks heaven knows
Somebody’s going to get into this house
The clock is ticking itself to sleep
I’m not afraid of the time it keeps
Even though the hours are long
It keeps good time but it won’t keep me
Somebody’s going to get into this house
My daughter won’t make the same mistake
The steps a jealous lover will take
Just to keep a bird in a cage
It is guaranteed no escape

I put good locks up on all the doors
This house, this house
The dog is not into crying wolf
This house, this house…

FOREVER


(Jane Wiedlin, Michael Lord)

There was a time
I felt empty inside
Choking on loneliness
If I knew then
What I know now
I’d have laughed at it all
Now that I’ve got
Forever with you
Though forever isn’t long enough
Forever isn’t nearly long enough
One look at you
I could feel myself
Drowning in your eyes
I headed for shallow water
And found that I was too late
So I’ll sink forever in an ocean of love
Though forever isn’t long enough
Forever isn’t nearly long enough
So say you’ll always love me
We’ll be together forever
I’m excessive and greedy
And as far as I’m concerned
Forever isn’t long enough
All alone I was hiding from life
Couldn’t pry me from my little world
Stuck in a rut
I couldn’t see through the haze
Who’d have thought
I’d look forward to eternity

MODERN ROMANCE


(Jane Wiedlin, George Kieffer)

Running from one to the next
Searching for some kind of elusive truth
Decisions we make
Heartless and devastating
Come to the point
Stop contemplating
Decide forever
For good or better

What’s so great about modern romance
What’s so neat about fooling around
Taking a heart and playing lost and found
You can keep it your modern romance

Casualties of the casual
Litter the ground like war victims
These choices we take
Thoughtless and heartbreaking
Make a commitment
Stop running away
Decide forever
For good or better

What’s so great about modern romance
What’s so neat about fooling around
Taking a heart and running it into the ground
You can keep it your modern romance
You can keep it your modern romance

I guess no one can imagine
A future anymore
But there must be something permanent
There must be something good
Something good in store for us

I don’t want your modern romance

I WILL WAIT FOR YOU


(Kevin Hunter)

Outside your door
Beside your car
I watched the lights go on and off
Like fires suspended
Burning circles in my eyes
I know a thing or two about wasting away
Waiting, I’ve been waiting so long

I will wait for you
Stuck out in the frozen darkness
What am I supposed to do
I will wait for you
Until I hear the words from you
To say you’re coming through 
I will wait for you

Behind these doors
Between these words
We watch the nights go on and on
My dreams suspended
Throwing shadows in my eyes
I know a thing or two about wasting away
Waiting, I’ve been waiting so long

Waiting, waiting so long

And if I have to wait forever
Know that this is true
I will wait for you
(Stuck out in the frozen darkness)

ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE


(Jane Wiedlin)

The truck won’t start
That was always your department
And it’s so hot
The a/c broke awhile back
And I still haven’t fixed it
I remember us
Huddled by the heater
Watching the stream rise
And trying to get warm
How long how long ago does that seem
Seems like a hundred years of solitude
Feels like a hundred years of solitude
My footsteps ring
They’re the only sounds
In these empty rooms
I remember when this house was
Locked up in your laughter
I know that you
You do what you’ve gotta do
And I guess that I
I’m holding my own
But it’s been so long so very long
Seems like a hundred years of solitude
Feels like a hundred years of solitude
How long have we been apart
How long have you been gone
Seems like a hundred years of solitude, solitude
Maybe pretty soon
Winter will come 
Seems like a hundred years of solitude
I’m longing for the cold
For you to come home
Feels like a hundred years of solitude
Feels like a hundred years of solitude
Feels like a hundred years of solitude, solitude
Feels like a hundred years of solitude, solitude
Feels like a hundred years of solitude
How long have you been gone ?
Solitude, solitude, solitude…

WHERE WE CAN GO


(Wiedlin, Kevin Hunter)

Tuesday morning as we wandered
Darkness called hold on
Misty grey of night plays tricks
And we’ve been searching so long 

And it’s hard to believe
That we escaped between
The cracks of time
Drink in the end of night
We’re out of touch and out of rhyme
But I know it don’t matter no
I know where we can go 

Where we can go
Where we can go
Where we can go
Where we can go

We walked to the broadway tunnel
Lights out I had never been
Worlds ran through my aching head
The dawn felt and we saw the end

And it’s hard to believe 
That we escaped again
Between the lines
Drink in the end of the night
We’re out of touch and out of time
But I know it don’t matter no
I know where we can go

Where we can go
Where we can go
Where we can go go go
Where we can go

Standing in a courtyard
Statues background it may call us in
Caught up in a corner city wakes
And we sleep through the tean

And it’s hard to believe
That we escaped again
Between the lines
Drink in the end of the night
We’re out of touch and out of time
But I know it don’t matter no
I know where we can go

MY TRAVELING HEART


(Jane Wiedlin)

Just when I think it’s done
It starts again
This feeling creeps in from the cold
I swear with a heart
Stretched out as a wire
I swear on my heart
I never wanted to roam
I swear while this heart
Is pulled like a magnet from pole to pole

That’s all I’m left with
A travelling heart
One lover no longer
And one soon to part
It’s not enough to be
True at the start
When all you have
Is a travelling heart

Our time together
I lose my sense of me
All I see
Is my travelling heart
My rusted charms
No longer bring me luck
I stay inside myself
What else can I do
I am beside myself
There’s nothing left in me to give to you

Well all I’m left with is
A travelling heart
One lover no longer
And one soon to part
It’s not enough to be
True at the start
When all you have
Is your travelling heart

All I’m left with is
A travelling heart
One lover no longer
And one soon to part
It’s not enough to be
True at the start
When all you have
Is a travelling heart
All I’m left with is
A travelling heart
One lover no longer
And one soon to part
It’s not enough to be
True at the start
When all you have
Is your travelling heart
Just when I think it’s done
Just when I think it’s done
Just when I think it’s done
It starts again
