Song for Yesterday

Oops!  I forgot to post this yesterday. I adored the Thompson Twins back in the eighties.  This was my favorite of their songs.  Definitely in my romance writing music playlists.  Lyrics beneath the cut.







I have a picture pinned to my wall
An image of you and me and we’re laughing
With love at it all
But look at our lives now, we’re tattered and torn
We fuss and we fight and delight in the tears
That we cry until dawn


Hold me now
Warm my heart
Stay with me
Let lovin’ start, let lovin’ start

You say I’m a dreamer, we’re two of a kind
Both of us searching form some perfect world we know we’ll never find
So perhaps I should leave here, yeah yeah, go far away
But you know that there’s nowhere that I’d rather be
Than with you here today

Hold me now
Warm my heart
Stay with me
Let lovin’ start, let lovin’ start

Hold me now
Warm my heart
Stay with me
Let lovin’ start, let lovin’ start

You ask if I love you, well, what can I say?
You know that I do and this is just one of those games that we play
So I’ll sing you a new song, please don’t cry anymore
I’ll even ask your forgiveness though I don’t know just what I’m asking it for


Hold me now (hold me in your lovin’ arms)
Warm my heart (warm my cold and tired heart)
Stay with me (Ooh stay with me)
Let lovin’ start, let lovin’ start

Hold me now (hold me in your lovin’ arms)
Warm my heart (warm my cold and tired heart)
Stay with me (Ooh stay with me)
Let lovin’ start, let lovin’ start

Hold me now (hold me in your lovin’ arms)
Warm my heart (warm my cold and tired heart)
Stay with me (Ooh stay with me)
Let lovin’ start, let lovin’ start

Hold me now (hold me in your lovin’ arms)
Warm my heart (warm my cold and tired heart)
Stay with me (Ooh stay with me)
Let lovin’ start, let lovin’ start

The Thompson Twins?! What about Missing Persons or Wang Chung?

Face it, music was at a rather low patch.

I like 80s music...I like 60s music, 70s, and 2000s...I was in a Celtic music niche for most of the 90s, though. I'm still trying to find out if there was music then I like and missed.

Well, 80's music is a problem and the only way I can define it is that I spent last Saturday night switching through radio stations at approximately 6 to a minute clear from NY to Cape Cod. Hold me now showed up once, She's Got the Beat showed up twice, and apparently Volka Salsa wins the airways from NY to Southern Rhode Island.
