Remarks:

Roberta Flack’s cover of Kitty White’s 1962 song. An utter classic, what can I say?

Lyrics:

The first time, ever I saw your face,
I thought the sun rose in your eyes.
And the moon and stars were the gifts you gave,
To the dark and the endless skies, my love.
To the dark and the endless skies.

And the first time, ever I kissed your mouth,
I felt the earth move in my hand.
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird,
That was there at my command, my love.
That was there at my command, my love.

And the first time, ever I lay with you,
I felt your heart, so close to mine.
And I knew our joy would fill the earth,
And last ’till the end of time, my love.
And it would last ’till the end of time, my love.

The first time ever I saw your face.
Your face.
Your face.
Your face.
Your face.

Remarks:

I would embed “Billie Jean” or “Don’t Stop ’til You Get Enough” but those are not embeddable. But this one is. It is a great song in its own right. Michael Jackson is 13 or 14 here. It makes you understand how amazingly talented he was. Although he is backed up by his brothers here, it was his first single ever.

The second song they do in the video is “Brand New Thing”. I am unfamiliar with it.

Lyrics:

Got to be there, got to be there
Be there in the morning
When she says hello to the world
Got to be there, got to be there
Be there, bring her good times
And show her that she’s my girl
Oh, what a feeling there’ll be
The moment I know she loves me
’cause when I look in her eyes I realize
I need her sharing the world beside me

So I’ve got to be there
Got to be there
Be there where love begins
And that’s everywhere she goes
I’ve got to be there so she knows
That when she’s with me, she’s home

Yeah, she’s home

Got to be there to be there
Got to be there oh yeah

Remarks:

One of those songs I have played to death. Although it is from 1967, I did not get into it till 1997, probably through the U2 version.

Lyrics:

Hearts go astray
Leaving hurt when they go
I went away
Just when you needed me so
Filled with regret
I come back begging you
Forgive, forget
Where’s the love we once knew

Open up your eyes
Then you’ll realize
Here I stand with my
Everlasting Love
Need you by my side
Girl to be my bride
You’ll never be denied
Everlasting Love
From the very start
Open up your heart
Be a lasting part of
Everlasting Love

Where life’s really flows
No-one really knows
‘Till someone’s there to
Show the way to
Everlasting Love
Like the sun it shines
Endlessly it shines
You always will be mine
It’s eternal love
Whenever loves are gone
Ours will be strong
We’d have our very own
Everlasting Love

Open up your eyes
Then you’ll realize
Here I stand with my
Everlasting Love
Need you by my side
Girl to be my bride
You’ll never be denied
Everlasting Love

Gotta get off, gonna get…
Have to get off from this ride.
Gotta get hold, gonna get…
Need to get hold of my pride.

When did I get, where did I…
How was I caught in this game?
When will I know, where will I…
How will I think of my name?

When did I stop feeling sure, feeling safe,
And start wondering why, wondering why?
Is this a dream, am I here, where are you?
What’s in back of the sky? Why do we cry?

Gotta get off, gonna get,
Out of this merry-go-round.
Gotta get on, gonna get…
Need to get on where I’m bound.

When did I get, where did I…
Why am I lost as a lamb?
When will I know, where will I…
How will I learn who I am?

Is this a dream?
Am I here?
Where are you?
Tell me, when will I know?
How will I know?
When will I know why?
