Samuel’s Musician Of The Week: Laura Branigan

This week’s award goes to Laura Branigan, and the feature song is Self Control

Oh the night, is my world
City lights, painted girls
In the day, nothing matters
It’s the night time that flatters
In the night, no control
Through the wall, something’s breaking
Wearing white, as you’re walking
Down the street, of my soul

You take my self
You take my self-control
You got me living only for the night
Before the morning comes the story’s told
You take my self
You take my self-control

Another night
Another day goes by
I never stop myself to wonder why
You help me to forget to play my role
You take my self
You take my self-control

I
I live among the creatures of the night
I haven’t got the will to try and fight
Against a new tomorrow
So, I guess I’ll just believe it that tomorrow never comes

I said night
(You take myself, you take my self-control)
I’m living in the forest of a dream
(You take myself, you take my self-control)
I know the night is not as it would seem
(You take myself, you take my self-control)
I must believe in something so I’ll make myself believe it-
(You take myself, you take my self-control)
This night will never go

Ooo
Ooo
Ooo
Ooo
Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo

Oh the night, is my world
City lights, painted girls
In the day, nothing matters
It’s the night, time that flatters

(Oh the night, is my world)
You take my self, you take my self-control
(City lights, painted girls)
You got me living only for the night
(In the day, nothing matters)
Before the morning comes the story’s told
(It’s the night time that flatters)
You take my self, you take my self-control

I
I live among the creatures of the night
I haven’t got the will to try and fight, against a new tomorrow
So, I guess I’ll just believe it – tomorrow never knows
I said night
I’m living in the forest of a dream
I know the night is not as it would seem
I must believe in something so I’ll make myself believe it-
that this night will never go

Ooo
Ooo
Ooo
Ooo

(Ooo, ooo)
You take my self, you take my self-control
(Ooo, ooo)
You take my self, you take my self-control
(Ooo, ooo)
You take my self, you take my self-control
(Ooo, ooo)
You take my self, you take my self-control

(Ooo)
I
(ooo)
I live among the creatures of the night
(Ooo, ooo)
I haven’t got the will to try and fight
(Ooo, ooo)
I’m living in the forest of a dream
(Ooo, ooo)
I know the night is not as it would seem
(Ooo, ooo)
(Ooo, ooo)
City lights, painted girls
(Ooo, ooo)
You take my self, you take my self-control
(Ooo, ooo)
You take my self, you take my self-control
(Ooo, ooo)
You take my self, you take my self-control
(Ooo, ooo)
You take my self, you take my self-control
(Ooo, ooo)
You take my self, you take my self-control

Ray Martin tonight on Open House

Ray Martin, as regular readers would know, is a media personality for whom I have a lot of respect. Those of you with really good memories would know that I don’t believe Carols By Candlelight will ever be as good as it used to be now that Ray no longer hosts it.

For these reasons and more, I am looking forward to Ray Martin’s appearance on Open House with Sheridan Voysey tonight. As Sheridan puts it:

This week on Open House hear Ray’s story–the impoverished childhood, the turbulent school years, and the dash across Australia that saved his life. He’ll reflect on his successes and regrets, and share insights into the world of popular media.

I don’t know what time Ray’s interview will air as it could be at any point in the three-hour show. I would recommend tuning in to the entire show between 8pm and 11pm AEDST, except that I can’t, as every time I do that on Facebook, the show seems to start by interviewing some far-left cuckoo-land person who declares people who share my opinions to be a “redneck”. That said, I quite enjoy sitting in a semi-soundproof studio yelling at said far-left cuckoo-land person. They might not be able to hear me, but at least their bizarre ramblings reinforce my knowledge of just how wrong they are.

Anyway, I digress. Ray Martin will be on Open House tonight at some stage between 8pm and 11pm, on Canberra’s 1WAY FM (stream), Sydney’s Hope 1032 (stream) and a whole heap of other stations.

Still here

I’m still here, I just need a break every now and then, recently more so than usual.

I don’t like concerning y’all with my absences (if I want to use the word, I’ll use it), so I apologise if I did concern any of you, and I also thank you for your concern.

I’m back, although I do expect things to be a bit quiet around here for a while.
