Looking out a dirty old window
Down below the cars in the city go rushing by
I sit here alone and I wonder why
Friday night and everyone's moving
I can feel the heat but it's soothing, heading down
I search for the beat in this dirty town
Downtown the young ones are going
Downtown the young...
Never again, isn't that what you said
You've been through this before
You swore, this time, you'd think with your head
No one would ever have you again
And if takin' was gonna get done, you'd decide where and when
Just when you think you got it down
Your heart securely tied and bound
Ooh, you're givin' me the fever tonight
I don't want to give in
I'd be playin' with fire
You forget, I've seen you work before
Take 'em straight to the top
Leave 'em cryin' for more
I've seen you burn 'em before
Fire and ice
You come on like a flame
Then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice
Music video by Soft Cell performing Tainted Love. (C) 1981
Sometimes I feel I've got to
Run away, I've got to
Get away from the pain you drive into the heart of me
The love we share
Seems to go nowhere
And I've lost my light
For I toss and turn, I can't sleep at night
Once I ran to you (I ran)...
Everyone's watching, to see what you will do
Everyone's looking at you, oh
Everyone's wondering, will you come out tonight
Everyone's trying to get it right, get it right
Everybody's working for the weekend
Everybody wants a little romance
Everybody's goin' off the deep end
Everybody needs a...
Here she comes now sayin' Mony Mony
Shoot 'em down turn around come on Mony
Hey she give me love and I feel all right now
Come on you gotta toss and turn
And feel all right, yeah I feel all right
I said yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
'Cause you make me feel
So good, so good, so good
So fine, so...
Tommy Tutone's official music video for '867-5309/Jenny'.
Jenny, Jenny, who can I turn to?
You give me somethin' I can hold on to
I know you think I'm like the others before
Who saw your name and number on the wall
Jenny, I got your number
I need to make you mine
Jenny, don't change your...

Can you hear them
They talk about us
Well, that's no surprise
Can you see them
See right through them
They have no shield
No secrets to reveal
It doesn't matter what they say
Her hair is Harlow gold
Her lips, a sweet surprise
Her hands are never cold
She got Bette Davis eyes
She'll turn the music on you
You won't have to think twice
She's pure as New York snow
She got Bette Davis eyes

This town is coming like a ghost town
All the clubs have been closed down
This place is coming like a ghost town
Bands won't play no more
Too much fighting on the dance floor
Do you remember the good old days before the ghost town?
We danced and sang as the music played in any boomtown
"Jessie is a friend
Yeah, I know, he's been a good friend of mine
But lately something's changed that ain't hard to define
Jessie's got himself a girl and I want to make her mine."
Official Video for "Jessie's Girl" by Rick SpringfieldListen to Rick Springfield...
It's the terror of knowing what this world is about
Watching some good friends screaming
"Let me out"
Tomorrow, gets me higher, higher
Pressure on people
People on streets
Originally released as a single in the fall of 1981, it was included on the album "Hot Space" in 1982.
