Head Over Heels - The Go go's

My mom's watching HBO and the beginning of the movie played this song. What did it remind me? It is an all-girl band formed back in UP Baguio. I am proud to say, some of its members were good sisters of mine... meaning my fellows in a school organization. Guitarist was Ces and drummer was Eva. We all entered the University in 1993... Gosh, I miss that batch!

They practically introduced me to this music because they played it in one of their gigs in the campus. I never really knew the title nor the lyrics of the song but when they played it, I was drawn to it because of the upbeat. Then I found out this is actually a song from the 80s, we call them "new wave".

Ahh, I just love new wave. Notice some of the songs from the 80s are being revived by younger artists nowadays? Because those songs are good.

There it is...

Been running so long
I've nearly lost all track of time in every direction
I couldn't see the warning signs, I must be losin' it
'Cuz my mind plays tricks on me, It looked so easy
But you know looks sometimes deceive
Been running so fast
Right from the starting line
No more connections
I don't need any more advice
One hand's just reaching out
And one's just hangin' on
It seems my weaknesses
Just keep going strong


Head over heels
Where should I go
Can't stop myself
Outta control
Head over heels
No time to think
Looks like
The whole world's out of sync

Been running so hard
When what I need is to unwind
The voice of reason
Is one I left so far behind
I waited so long
So long to play this part
And just remembered
That I'd forgotten about my heart

Head over heels
Where should I go
Can't stop myself
Outta control
Head over heels
No time to think
Looks like
The whole world's out of sync




head over heels- go go - NEW WAVE
