September 2010: Puppies In The Rain

There goes yet another warm summer and it's time to cuddle up under a warm blanket to make sure you stay warm through the cold dark winter.

But make sure you don't forget our little furry friends, puppies!

Lyrics

PUPPIES IN THE RAIN

puppies in the rain
they'll steal your heart away
under autumn's veil
loppy ears and soggy tails
they don't even know their names
or if they have yet any
if the coldest heart can break
it will break for them

for puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh

puppies in the rain
want to feel the warmth again
and find the kindness that can save them

puppies in the rain
lost on a strange terrain
they just want to play
but they'll need a safer place
a warm lap and loving arms
that'll never let them down
the cold world makes us all bark
but we only want some love

like puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain

take them home and dry their hair
tuck them in a warm blanket
and they'll snuggle up to somebody who deserves it

puppies in the rain
want to feel the warmth again
and find the kindness that can save them

we're puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh

Red Carpet - Sad Eyed Disco Dancers

Red Carpet was by far one of the most amazing bands ever from the Finnish indie pop scene. We were fortunate enough to have them cover us on their farewell ep 'The Band They Coulnd't Hang' in 2007.

Here's their cover of our track Sad Eyed Disco Dancers, from our Melancholydisco album.

Check out more Red Carpet from their MySpace page or from Last.fm (although you should know that there are several other Red Carpets as well).

Lyrics

sad eyed disco dancers
shy away the glances
hide inside their favourite songs

sad eyed disco dancers
teargas on the dancefloor
hearts riot by the mirrorball

sad eyed disco dancers

sad eyed disco dancers
lost in the neon sadness
comforting strobe oblivion

sad eyed disco dancers

I'm lonely, you're lonely too
we dance and I only see you
don't let the music end
if only by chance something could take place

sad eyed disco dancers
sleepdancing past their chances
disconnected from the world

sad eyed disco dancers

I'm lonely, you're lonely too
we dance and I only see you
don't let the music end
if only by chance something could take place

sad eyed disco dancers
cool cats and silly prancers
nowhere else to go

sad eyed disco dancers

I'm lonely, you're lonely too
we dance and I only see you
don't let the music end
if only by chance something could take place

sad eyed disco dancers

February 2010: Heart Breaks Into A Song

This month in Viola Music Club: were a-rockin'!

That's right! It's full-on 110% full steam ahead MIDI rock n' roll from the Viola camp this time.

This month's top achievement: fitting words like "ventriloquist" and "cardiologist" into a carefree indierock lyric.

HEART BREAKS INTO A SONG

heart breaks into a song
the only one it knows
but no one sings along
they just stare

heart breaks into a song
and everybody stops
where does that sound come from
it's an awkward show
but I'm no ventriloquist
what the hell is going on

heart breaks into a song
the only one it knows
but no one sings along
are they just scared
when my heart breaks into a song

heart breaks into a song
an organ-grinding song
the voice is shrill yet so strong
something unheard of
hey cardiologist
tell me what is wrong

heart breaks into a song
the only one it knows
but no one sings along
well I don't care
when my heart breaks into a song

catch that song before it's gone
take it home and sing it to your darling

heart breaks into a song
please tell me doctor
what am I to do
when it sings like this

heart breaks into a
heart breaks into a
heart breaks into a
heart breaks into a song

Lyrics

almost long lost
somewhere chasing ghosts
adored unknown
I'll shield my fading glow
for far too long

why does life make sense
only in the past tense
have we had our try
halo goodbye

we hide behind an emotion proof facade
distance equals safety in our world
we still get burned

why does life make sense
only in the past tense
have we had our try
halo goodbye

if I'm happy don't wake me up
nothing hurts when you're losing touch

why does life make sense
only in the past tense
have we had our try
halo goodbye

Lyrics

you're driving so fast now
sceneries blur
lights all pass by like ghosts
how the enthralling speed keeps us close
if we stop all ceases to glow
oh how the world is so slow

there are no words to say
on cruel motorway
no further delay
just drive me away
there's no better way

we're chasing the traces
on passing faces
aching to feel something real
the deepest sensation
of losing temptations
strips the life of false meanings
maybe the next one, darling

there are no words to say
on cruel motorway
no further delay
when all flows away
no reason to stay
just drive me away
there's no better way

and it all feels just the same
until you throw yourself away

no further delay
when love flows away
no further delay
you drive me away

Deepspeed (Escapist Pioneers version)

Palindrome-titled disco track with lyrics about how motorway cruises correspond with dysfunctional relationships ("Art Of Driving", "Crash" (book and film, not the band..), anyone?). Or something like that. Still a live regular and always almost gets the people dancing...
