i was watching an mtv show where johan renck (aka stakka bo) was showing his fav videos. i don't remember anyone of them except the last one which was bobby conn's 'never get ahead'. bizarre lyrics and nice strings makes this little number a nice tune.
25 Mar 04 ·masterkil: compare this song with i want you back from the jacksons five, Do you find similar tunes? 26 Mar 04 ·shaka_klaus: yeah, i thought that one was pretty obvious. however i could have mentioned it. i think it's a nice theft! ;-) 28 Jun 04 ·Sepp: bizarre lyrics. ??? ... so please help me. i couldnt get much from the lyrics. maybe because of the fucking cool violin. i searched the internet to find the lyrics but didnt get it. maybe you could help me with it.
