In the midst of conference paper submission...

Was discussing this song with Mr Big, realised that we both love this song... and Mr Big especially remembered this song from a part of the movie When We Were Soldiers, when they had this dance the night before the soldiers were deployed. While I'm generally anti-war, I do think that this is a very nice song and made all the more poignant in the movie, when that night that they dance with their partners could well be the very last night they see each other alive.

One of my fav oldies. Alrighty, back to working on the paper...



Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me - originally by Mel Carter

Hold me, hold me,

Never let me go until you’ve told me, told me,
What I want to know and then just hold me, hold me
Make me tell you I’m in love with you.

Thrill me, thrill me,
Walk me down the lane where shadows will be, will be
Hiding lovers just the same as we’ll be, we’ll be,
When you make me tell you I love you.

They told me be sensible with your new love,
Don’t be fooled thinking this is the last you’ll find.
But they never stood in the dark with you love,
When you take me in your arms and drive me slowly out of my mind

Kiss me, kiss me,
And when you do I’ll know you that you will miss me, miss me,
If we ever say adieu so kiss me, kiss me,
Make me tell you I’m in love with you
