Musical Monday #144 - Ho Hey
Who knows, maybe I will manage to do it every week from now... *cough*
This weeks song was actually a no-brainer for me. Usually I hear a song when it's "past" being a new, popular song, and quite often, I hear it and forget it, then hear it and forget it...
However, this week I was quite lucky. We've been watching a TV show called "Cuckoo" which is properly properly funny - it's Greg Davies, so - but in the last episode, there was a song playing which I loved. Properly loved. It made me feel happy and I couldn't help tapping my head and foot to it.
And then, Kellie decided to decorate the living room - which meant I forgot all traces of it. I kept thinking "I must look for that song..." but never found a minute to do it.
Fast forward to Sunday evening, and I'm "helping" and the radio is on - the chart show, no less - and wouldn't you know it, the same song came on! Of course, being that I was covered in border paste and holding ten-feet of paper in place, I couldn't just nip off and grab a pen. The name of the group and the song went in one ear, and fell out the other side.
Into the paste, no doubt.
But - being smart as I am - I remember the number!
So, long story short (too late) here's my current-favourite-song-of-all-time!
The Lumineers - Ho Hey
(Ho!) I've been trying to do it right
(Hey!) I've been living a lonely life
(Ho!) I've been sleeping here instead
(Hey!)I've been sleeping in my bed,
(Ho!) I've been sleeping in my bed (Hey!)
(Ho!) So show me family
(Hey!) All the blood that I would bleed
(Ho!) I don't know where I belong
(Hey!) I don't know where I went wrong
(Ho!) But I can write a song (Hey!)
1,2,3 I belong with you, you belong with me you're my sweetheart
I belong with you, you belong with me you're my sweet (Ho!)
(Ho!) I don't think you're right for him
(Hey!) Look at what it might have been if you
(Ho!) Took the bus to china town
(Hey!) I've been standing on Canal
(Ho!) And Bowery (Hey!)
(Ho!) And she'd be standing next to me (Hey!)
1,2,3 I belong with you you belong with me you're my sweet heart
I belong with you, you belong with me you're my sweet heart
And love we need is now
Let's hope for some
Cause oh, we're bleeding out
I belong with you you belong with me you're my sweet heart
I belong with you you belong with me you're my sweet (Ho!)
