Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers - Don't Do Me Like That (1979)



Unknown live date.

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers
"Don't Do Me Like That"
rock-zounds/single rated: 8
Album: Damn The Torpedoes (1979 Backstreet/MCA)


SINGLE:



LYRICS:


I was talking with a friend of mine, said a woman had hurt his pride
Told him that she loved him so and turned around and let him go
Then he said, "You better watch your step,
Or your gonna get hurt yourself
Someone's gonna tell you lies, cut you down to size"

Don't do me like that
Don't do me like that
What if I love you baby?
Don't do me like that

Don't do me like that
Don't do me like that
Someday I might need you baby
Don't do me like that

Listen honey, can you see? Baby, you would bury me
If you were in the public eye givin' someone else a try
And you know you better watch your step
Or you're gonna get hurt yourself
Someone's gonna tell you lies, cut you down to size

Don't do me like that
Dont' do me like that
What if I love you baby?
Don't, don't, don't, don't

Don't do me like that
Don't do me like that
What if I need you baby?
Don't do me like that

'Cause somewhere deep down inside
Someone is saying, "Love doesn't last that long"
I got this feelin' inside night and day
And now I can't take it no more

Listen honey, can you see? Baby, you would bury me
If you were in the public eye givin' someone else a try
And you know you better watch your step
Or you're gonna get hurt yourself
Someone's gonna tell you lies, cut you down to size

Don't do me like that
Don't do me like that
What if I love you baby?
Don't, don't, don't, don't

Don't do me like that
Don't do me like that
I just might need you honey
Don't do me like that

Wait!
Don't do me like that
Don't do me like that
Baby, baby, baby,
Don't, don't, don't

No!
Don't do me like that
Don't do me like that
Baby, baby, baby...

Oh, oh, oh



XTC - King For A Day (1989)



XTC
"King for a Day"
rock-zounds/single rated: 8
Album: Orange & Lemons (1989 Virgin Records)

The track was written by Colin Moulding and it was recorded in Los Angeles under the production of Paul Fox.
"King for a Day" was one of the three singles out of  the Orange & Lemons album , the other two were "The Mayor of Simpleton" and "The Loving".

SINGLE:





LYRICS:

Everyone's creeping up to the money god,
putting tongues where they didn't ought to be.
On stepping stones of human hearts and souls,
Into the land of "nothing for free."

Well the way that we're living,
Is all take and no giving,
There's nothing to believe in,
The loudest mouth will hail the new found way,
to be king for a day.

Everyone's licking up to the new king pin,
Trying to get way up with a smile.
Sing for your supper boy and jump to a finger click,
Ain't my way of living in style.

'Cause the ladder gets longer,
And ambition gets stronger,
I can't satisfy the hunger,
That bad old moon has got you in its sway,
To be king for a day.

You're only here once so you got to get it right.
(No time to fuss and fight.)
'Cause life don't mean much if measured out with someone else's plight.
(In time you'll see the light.)

'Cause the way that we're living,
Is all take and no giving,
There's nothing to believe in,
The loudest mouth will hail the new found way,
to be king for a day.

The Fall - Mr. Pharmacist (1986)




The Fall
"Mr.Phamacist"
rock-zounds/single rated: 8
Album: Bend Sinister (1986 Beggars Banquet)

One of my favourite The Fall 80's track , it sounds more easy for my ears than many of their recorded music.
Is this maybe their most "commercial" period ? , I don't know but I like it!.

"Hey Mr Pharmacist
I'll recommend you to my friends
They'll be happy in the end
Mr Pharmacist can you help
Send me on a 'delic kick
Mr Pharmacist "

Sounds crazy and funny

SINGLE:




LYRICS:


Mr Pharmacist
Can you help me out today
In your usual lovely way
Oh Mr Pharmacist I insist
That you give me some of that vitamin C
Mr Pharmacist


Dear Pharmacist won't you please
Give me some energy
Mr Pharmacist


Hey Mr Pharmacist
I'll recommend you to my friends
They'll be happy in the end
Mr Pharmacist can you help
Send me on a 'delic kick
Mr Pharmacist


Dear Pharmacist use your mind
You better stock me up for the wintertime
Mr Pharmacist


Hey Mr Pharmacist
Words cannot express
Feeling I suggest
Oh Mr Pharmacist I can plead
Gimme some of that powder I need
Mr Pharmacist


Dear Pharmacist I'll be back
With a handful of empty sack
Mr Pharmacist
