David Bowie – Up The Hill Backwards


“Up the Hill Backwards” was released on David Bowie’s album, “Scary Monsters,” in 1980 and as a single in March of 1981. “Up The Hill Backwards” reached #32 on the UK Singles Chart but I’m not sure how well it did in the USA. I really like the song and I think it’s time to bring it back via Your Daily Song Fix.

The Talking Heads – Heaven

I really like the lyrics in this song so I am posting them below the music widget. It also has a great melody and harmonies.

Lyrics
Everyone is trying to get to the bar.
The name of the bar, the bar is called Heaven.
The band in Heaven they play my favorite song.
They play it one more time, they play it all night long.

Oh heaven, heaven is a place, a place where nothing, nothing ever happens.
Heaven is a place, a place where nothing, nothing ever happens.

There is a party, everyone is there.
Everyone will leave at exactly the same time.
When this partys over it will start again.
It will not be any different, it will be exactly the same.

Heaven is a place, a place where nothing, nothing ever happens.
Heaven is a place, a place where nothing, nothing ever happens.

When this kiss is over it will start again.
It will not be any different, it will be exactly
the same.
It’s hard to imagine that nothing at all
could be so exciting, could be this much fun.

Oh, heaven, heaven is a place, a place where nothing, nothing ever happens.
Oh, heaven, heaven is a place, a place where nothing, nothing ever happens.
