Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week

This week’s award goes to the group Propellerheads and singer Shirley Bassey; the feature song is one they produced together called “History Repeating”. I suppose, for the first Musicians Of The Week award following Clive Robertson’s departure from 2UE’s overnight show, a song I first heard on his show is appropriate.

The word is about, there’s something evolving,
whatever may come, the world keeps revolving
They say the next big thing is here,
that the revolution’s near,
but to me it seems quite clear
that it’s all just a little bit of history repeating

The newspaper’s shout a new style is growing,
but it don’t know if it’s coming or going,
there is fashion, there is fad
some is good, some is bad
and the joke is rather sad,
that it’s all just a little bit of history repeating

And I’ve seen it before
and I’ll see it again
yes I’ve seen it before
just little bits of history repeating

Some people won’t dance, if they don’t know who’s singing,
why ask your head, it’s your hips that are swinging
life’s for us to enjoy
woman, man, girl and boy,
feel the pain, feel the joy
aside set the little bits of history repeating

Just little bits of history repeating
and I’ve seen it before
and I’ll see it again
yes I’ve seen it before
just little bits of history repeating

Thanks for that song Clive! I hope you’re getting a bit more sleep now that you’re not working all night.
