I couldn't decide between something depressing or something poppy so I chose one that is both. :wink:

Jason Donovan-Too Many Broken Hearts :heart:πŸ’”










Last night you talked about leaving
I said I can't let you go
It's not just emotional feeling
I need you body and soul
You give me one good reason to leave me

I'll give you ten good reasons to stay
You're the only one I believe in
I'll be hurt, I'll be hurt if you walked away

Too many broken hearts in the world
There's too many, dreams can be broken in two
Too many broken hearts in the world
So I won't give up the fight for you

The world is full of lonely people
Who never held onto love
Last night I tried to reach you
But somehow it wasn't enough

So was it, can't you wait any longer?
I'll give you all a lover should give
It ain't my pride but my love that is stronger
I'll be hurt, I'll be hurt if you walked away

Too many broken hearts in the world
There's too many, dreams can be broken in two
Too many broken hearts in the world
So I won't give up the fight for you

Too many broken hearts in the world
There's too many, dreams can be broken in two
Too many broken hearts in the world
So I won't give up the fight for you

You give me one good reason to leave me
I'll give you ten good reasons to stay
You're the only one I believe in
I'll be hurt, I'll be hurt if you walked away

Too many broken hearts in the world
There's too many, dreams can be broken in two
Too many broken hearts in the world
So I won't give up the fight for you

Too many broken hearts in the world
There's too many, dreams can be broken in two
Too many broken hearts in the world
So I won't give up the fight for you

Sa-Fire-Thinking Of You πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”










As I sit
Looking out the window
I can still remember
They call me to tell me
You went away
It was such a cold day

On a sunday morning
It came without a warning
And all the pain I felt inside
I just can't forget you
I'm feeling so alone
Though many times I've tried
I can't get you off my mind I'm

I'm thinking of you
Wonder where you are tonight
I wish that I could hold you tight
I'm thinking of you
Wish you could stay
But you're so far away
So far away

And even though you're gone
I know you're happy
Where you are
I know someday
Will be together
Together again

On a sunday morning
It came without a warning
And all the pain I felt inside
I just can't forget you
I'm feeling so alone
Though many times I've tried
I can't get you off my mind

Wonder where you are tonight
I wish that I could hold you tight
I'm thinking of you
Wish you could stay
But you're so far away
So far away

I know someday
I'll hold you again
You and me together again
But untill that day
I'm thinking of you

I'm thinking of you
I wonder where you are tonight
I wish I could you tight
I'm thinking of you
I wish could you could stay
But you're so far away
I'm thinking of you

The Jets-Rocket 2 U :heart:









Baby, baby, when I called you on the phone today
You sounded frantic when you said "Come over, right away"
Oh, baby, baby, won't you say what's on your mind?

Your TV set is acting up and you don't understand
You're so upset because you can't watch "All My Children" and
You wonder if there's something I can do for you

Well all that I can say...

Baby, I can rocket 2 u
Honey, the only thing I can do
Baby, I can rocket all night (rock the night away)
One thing I know I can do (I can rocket 2 u!)

Don't call me when your car just can't get into second gear
Or when your kitchen sink is shooting water in your ear
Oh, baby, baby, I have told you this before

Is there a special reason that you just can't understand
I'm not the one to call when you need a heavy man
Unless whatever needs fixing, girl, is you

And I just have to say...

Baby, I can rocket 2 u (I can rocket 2 u)
Honey, the only thing I can do
Baby, I can rocket all night (rock the night away)
One thing I know I can do (I can rocket 2 u!)

Don't call me when your toaster won't pop up
Don't call me just to cut your lawn
Don't call me when your radio cuts off
In the middle of your favorite song
Don't call me when your shower just went Uh-uh, no, baby, don't call me
I think I told you this about a million times
You know, it's not my cup of tea

I can rocket 2 u
The only thing I can do
I can rocket all night

I can rocket 2 u, baby
Let me rocket 2 ya, oh yeah
Just a little bit more

Baby, I can rocket 2 u (I can rocket 2 u)
Honey, the only thing I can do
Baby, I can rocket all night (it's all that I can say)
One thing I know I can do (that's all that I can do)

Baby, I can rocket 2 u (I can rocket)
Honey, the only thing I can do (it's all that I can do)
Baby, I can rocket all night
One thing I know I can do (baby, I can rocket 2 u)

Baby, I can rocket 2 u
Honey, the only thing I can do
Baby, I can rocket all night
One thing I know I can do

On repeat for the last few days.... Probably for eternity.

George Jones-He Stopped Loving Her Today πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”









He said I'll love you 'til I die
She told him you'll forget in time
As the years went slowly by

She still prayed upon his mind

He kept her picture on his wall
Went half crazy now and then

He still loved her through it all
Hopin' she'd come back again

Kept some letters by his bed
Dated 1962

He had underlined in red

Every single "I love you"

I went to see him just today
Oh but I didn't see no tears
All dressed up to go away
First time I'd seen him smile in years

He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they'll carry him away
He stopped loving her today

Ya know she came to see him one last time

Oh and we alll wondered if she would
And it kept running through my mind

This time he's over her for good

He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they'll carry him away
He stopped loving her today

Thank you for the recommendation.

Somehow, I always think that George Jones is an older version of Jim Carrey :smiling:

Well, I was only going by his appearance, which is strikingly similar to Jim Carrey, but now I also know that George has left this place - bless him :happy:
I saw on wiki that he passed in 2013. I sorta remember it. I don't know all of his music but he has some awesome stuff.

Alright. I'll be sure to check his music out. Thank you! πŸ‘
The Grand Tour, A Picture Of Me Without You and The Race Is On are a few more I like.

A Picture Of Me Without You
Not sure if it's 80's though.

Heart-Never :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:










Hey baby, I'm talkin' to you
Stop yourself and listen
Some things you can never choose
Even if you try, yeah

You're bangin' your head again
'Cause somebody won't let you in
One chance, one love
Your chance to let me know

We can't go on just running away
If we stay any longer
We will surely never get away
Woah-oh-oh, anything you want
We can make it happen
Stand up and turn around
Never let them shoot us down

Never

Never run away

Hey baby, you know it's true
Why you bother lyin'?

One chance, one love
Hold me down, never let me go

We can't go on just running away
