Put Your Records On

Give this a listen. Be careful though. This kind of music can make you really, really laid-back...

Good morning!



Put Your Records On - Corinne Bailey Rae
Three little birds sat on my window
And they told me i don't need to worry
Summer came like cinnamon, so sweet
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete

Maybe sometimes, we got it wrong, but its alright
The more things seem to change, the more they stay the same
Oh, dont you hesitate

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down

You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow

Blue as the sky, sunburnt and lonely,
Sipping tea in a bar by the roadside,
(Just relax, just relax)
Don't you let those other boys fool you
Gotta love that afro hairdo

Maybe sometimes, we feel afraid, but it's alright
The more you stay the same, the more they seem to change
Don't you think it's strange?

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favorite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down

You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow

Just more than I could take, pity for pity's sake
Some nights kept me awake, I thought that I was stronger
When you gonna realize that you don't even have to try any longer?
Do what you want to!

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favorite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favorite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down

Oh, you're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow

  1. I like this song! Very chirpy and brightens up one's day :) I have heard other singers attempt this but somehow, only corinne sings it really well. The song's written for her.

  2. Help! I'm feeling a terrible sense of warmth and well being! Tell me something cynical quick before I start having...*gulp*...faith in humanity!

    The horror of it all, alas! Alack!
    Now I am feeling strangely quiet inside!
    I've got to get my moody visage back,
    Lest I begin to open my heart wide.
    Well done, Corinne! You calmed the storm.
    So help me to reclaim my norm!

  4. MBL, glad you like it.

    MM, too soothing, eh? LOL!

    Just cruising along caught in the jam
    Just having thoughts of pickles and ham
    MM finds it uneasy
    That Corinne's music is so easy
    Zeroing in freeing the knots and the jam

    LB, maybe a tad too laid back, eh? *thinking being in a hammock in the gentle breeze*
