Radio 53, side A, track 5: “The Way You Make Me Feel” by Michael Jackson, #55 on The Top 90 of the ’80s

Michael Jackson - The Way You Make Me FeelOh, Michael Jackson, just like yesterday’s song, here was another one that just one year before, almost to the exact same time, probably, I’d been recording this one off the Top 88 of ’88.  This was your second song on the countdown, and I’m guessing it probably won’t be your last.  But there’s only so much room on this thing, Michael Jackson.  We’re only ten songs away from the halfway point, and while I enjoy this song, I don’t know that I’d say it’s one of your best.  I mean, it’s damn good, but better than “Billie Jean”?  Good enough to be one of the top 90 songs of the ’80s?  I don’t know that I agree with that.  Just my opinion, of course, and you know what they say about opinions.  They’re like Michael Jackson songs.  Everyone’s got their favorite.

“The Way You Make Me Feel”

Hee-hee!

Ooo!

Go on, girl!

Ow!

Oo!

Hey pretty baby with the high heels on

Give me fever like I’ve never, ever known
Ya just a product of loveliness

I like the groove of your
Walk, your talk, your dress

I feel ya fever from miles around

I’ll pick you up in my
Car and we’ll paint the town
Just kiss me baby and tell me twice

That you’re the one for me

The way ya make me feel
(The way you make me feel)
You really turn me on
(You really turn me on)
You knock me off of my feet
(You knock me off my feet)
My lonely days are gone
(My lonely days are gone)
Uh

I like the feelin’ you’re givin’ me

Just hold me, baby, and
I’m in ecstasy

Oh, I’ll be workin’ from nine ta five

Ta buy ya things ta
Keep you by my side

Never felt so in love before

Just promise baby, you’ll
Love me forever more
I swear I’m keepin’ you satisfied

‘Cause you’re the one for me

The way ya make me feel
(The way you make me feel)
You really turn me on
(You really turn me on)
You knock me off of my feet
(You knock me off my feet)
My lonely days are gone
(My lonely days are gone)
Cha-oo!

Go on, girl!

Go on!

Hee hee!

Ow!

Go on, girl!

I never felt so in love before

Promise, baby, you’ll
Love me forever more

I swear I’m keepin’ you satisfied

‘Cause you’re the one for me

Way ya make me feel
(The way you make me feel)
You really turn me on
(You really turn me on)
Ya knock me off of my feet now, baby
Hee!
(You knock me off my feet)
Lonely days are gone
(My lonely days are gone)

The way ya make me feeel!
(The way you make me feel)
You really turnin’ me on
(You really turn me on)
You knock me off of my feet now, baby
Hee!
(You knock me off my feet)
My lonely days’a gone
(My lonely days are gone)

Ain’t nobody’s business
(The way you make me feel)
Ain’t nobody’s business
Ain’t nobody’s business
(You really turn me on)
Ain’t nobody’s business but mine and my baby
