Radio XII, side B, track 9: “Chains Of Love” by erasure

Oh, erasure, I’ve found you again.  This time you were singing the song that kicked off Vic St. John’s evening of rockin’ on a Sunday night.  There was always something electrifying about Vic St. John’s opening.  He was so exuberant, so excited to play music on the radio, and he always picked an awesome song to kick the night off with.  And so I got to record your song again, erasure, only this time it was a remix.  Not a huge difference between this and the original except it didn’t feature that beautiful mournful opening, but that’s all right.  Sunday nights meant school the next day, or if it was the summer, it meant working all day, which shows how powerful both this song and Vic St. John were, because both of them made me excited for a Sunday night.

“Chains Of Love”

Yeah!

Do you remember

There was a tiiiime

When people on the street

Were walking hand in hand in haaaand

They used to talk about the weather
Making plans together
Days would last forever

Come to me, cover me, hold me
Together we’ll break these chains of love
Don’t give up (don’t give up)
Don’t give up (up!)

Together with me and my baby, break the chains of love
(Chains, yeah!)

Do you remember once upon a tiiiiiiime

When there were open doors

An invitation to the wooooorld
We were falling
In and out with lovers
Lookin’ out for others, our sisters and our brothers

Come to me, cover me, hold me
Together we’ll break these chains of love
Don’t give up (don’t give up)
Don’t give up now (up!)

Together with me and my baby, break the chains of love

Together we’ll break these chains of love

How can I explain
When there are few words I can choose?
(Ooo-oooo)
And how can I explain
When words get broken?
(No no)
We used to talk about the weather
Making plans together
Days would last forever (yeah yeah yeah)

Come to me, cover me, hold me
Together we’ll break these chains of love
Don’t give up (don’t give up)
Don’t give up now (up!)

Together with me and my baby, break the chains of love

Together we’ll break these chains of love

Don’t give up (don’t give up)
Don’t give up now

Together with me and my baby, break the chains of love

Together we’ll break these chains of love

Don’t give up (don’t give up)
Don’t give up now

Together with me and my baby, break the chains of love

Together we’ll break these chains of love

Don’t give up
Don’t give up now

Together with me and my baby, break the chains of love
