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
video
One of my favourite songs.

WHERE WE CAN GO
video
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
video
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
