Blondie - Mother / One Way or Another

Cosmonauts....

I'm back with new - old lyrics from a band with one of the most exciting and fascinating female leadsingers ever: BLONDIE !!!
Debbie Harry is 66 years, but who cares ? She does not, so that's why they released a new album today called " Panic of Girls " and it sounds really good. It's catchy, it's danceable and I like the fact that Debbie's voice sounds jazzier and darker than in her glamourous Twenties. Well, it's the same phenomenon with Kate Bush, David Bowie or Sting. Their voices are not as high as they used to be.
Here is the new video ( thank you, J.!): http://www.myvideo.de/watch/8167483/Blondie_Mother_Official_Music_Video
This song is about a club, seen as a mother where everybody can go to all night long and feels protected.

Mother
In a packed-in-leather life
I was foolish, you were right
All night rookies pass the time
Looking for somewhere to go
Shiny boots are up their thighs

Mother in the night
Calling you, calling you
Mother in the night
Where are you, where are you now?
Mother’s left the building
We’re the missing children
Mother in the night
Where are you, where are you tonight?

Mother, may I stay all night?
Lift your curfew like the light
Collars turned against the cold
I’m looking for someone to hold
In your packed-in-leather night

Mother in the night
Calling you, calling you
Mother in the night
Where are you, where are you now?
Mother’s left the building
We’re the missing children
Mother in the night
Where are you, where are you?

Now that I can’t remember
I need you more than ever
Why can’t we be together always?

Mother in the night
Mother in the night

Mother’s left the building
We’re the missing children
Mother in the night
Where are you, where are you now?

Mother in the night
Calling you, calling you
Mother in the night
Where are you, where are you tonight?

Here is a link to a live performance of " Mother ":

Here's an older Blondie Song, it's gorgeous and has to be played on every good party...it's the hymn of freakin jealousy ;o)

 One way or another

One way or another I'm gonna find ya
I'm gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha
One way or another I'm gonna win ya
I'm gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha
One way or another I'm gonna see ya
I'm gonna meetcha meetcha meetcha meetcha
One day, maybe next week
I'm gonna meetcha, I'm gonna meetcha, I'll meetcha
I will drive past your house
And if the lights are all down
I'll see who's around

One way or another I'm gonna find ya
I'm gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha
One way or another I'm gonna win ya
I'll getcha, I'll getcha
One way or another I'm gonna see ya
I'm gonna meetcha meetcha meetcha meetcha
One day, maybe next week
I'm gonna meetcha, I'll meetcha

And if the lights are all out
I'll follow your bus downtown
See who's hanging out

One way or another I'm gonna lose ya
I'm gonna give you the slip, a slip of the lip or another
I'm gonna lose ya, I'm gonna trick ya, I'll trick ya
One way or another I'm gonna lose ya
I'm gonna trick ya trick ya trick ya trick ya
One way or another I'm gonna lose ya
I'm gonna give you the slip

I'll walk down the mall
Stand over by the wall
Where I can see it all
Find out who ya call
Lead you to the supermarket checkout
Some specials and rat food, get lost in the crowd

One way or another I'm gonna getcha, I'll getcha, I'll getcha getcha getcha getcha
(Where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
One way or another I'm gonna getcha, I'll getcha, I'll getcha getcha getcha getcha
(Where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
One way or another I'm gonna getcha, I'll getcha, I'll getcha getcha getcha getcha
(Where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
