Sophie B. Hawkins - "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover"

Goodnight everyone. Thanks so much to +David Calderon for his lyrics tonight!! It was great to have you back, David!

Honestly, I'm not sure I'm up for continuing this any more. I'll let you know my thoughts next week. Most regulars have gone, or aren't interested any more, and without work, I'm adrift at the moment. I'm thinking about many things. Have a great weekend, and thanks everyone!

Tonight, we're all on vacation. After a long day of doing all that we do on summer vacation, you come back and now you're sitting by a campfire (or cooling down inside) and this show is for you! Grab a cold one, lean back, and just let the summer wash over you!

Any genre, any time period, and "summer" doesn't have to be in the title. But the vibe of the summer should be. Heck, whatever makes you enjoy the summer!

When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that's the best
When I lay me down to die
Goin' up to the spirit in the sky
Goin' up to the spirit in the sky
That's where I'm gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that's the best

Prepare yourself you know it's a must
Gotta have a friend in Jesus
So you know that when you die
He's gonna recommend you
To the spirit in the sky
Gonna recommend you
To the spirit in the sky
That's where you're gonna go when you die
When you die and they lay you to rest
You're gonna go to the place that's the best

The original has a special place in my heart; miss you, Mom. RIP.
But this one is a great take on the original.

Take away the sensation inside
Bittersweet migraine in my head
It's like a throbbing toothache of the mind
I can't take this feeling anymore

[Chorus:]
Drain the pressure from the swelling,
This sensation's overwhelming,
Give me a long kiss goodnight
And everything will be alright
Tell me that I won't feel a thing
So give me Novacaine

Out of body and out of mind
Kiss the demons out of my dreams
I get the funny feeling and that's alright
Jimmy says it's better than air,
I'll tell you why

[Chorus:]
Drain the pressure from the swelling,
This sensation's overwhelming,
Give me a long kiss goodnight
And everything will be alright
Tell me that I won't feel a thing
So give me Novacaine

Tom, get your plane right on time.
I know your part'll go fine.
Fly down to Mexico.
Da-n-da-da-n-da-n-da-da and here I am,
The only living boy in New York.

I get the news I need on the weather report.
I can gather all the news I need on the weather report.
Hey, I've got nothing to do today but smile.
Da-n-do-da-n-do-da-n-do here I am,
The only living boy in New York.
Half of the time we're gone but we don't know where,
And we don't know where.

Tom, get your plane right on time.
I know that you've been eager to fly now.
Hey let your honesty shine, shine, shine
Da-n-da-da-n-da-n-da-da
Like it shines on me.
The only living boy in New York,
The only living boy in New York.

What day is it
And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive
I can't keep up, and I can't back down
I've been losing so much time

'Cause it's you and me
And all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it's you and me
And all the other people
And I don't know why
I can't keep my eyes off of you

Why are the things that I want to say
Just aren't coming out right?
I'm tripping on words
You got my head spinning
I don't know where to go from here

I had to escape
The city was sticky and cruel
Maybe I should have called you first
But I was dying to get to you
I was dreaming while I drove
The long straight road ahead, uh, huh

Could taste your sweet kisses
Your arms open wide
This fever for you is just burning me up inside

I drove all night to get to you
Is that alright
I drove all night
Crept in your room
Woke you from your sleep
To make love to you
Is that alright
I drove all night

I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
I'll make you so sure about it

God only knows what I'd be without you

If you should ever leave me
Though life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me

God only knows what I'd be without you

God only knows what I'd be without you

If you should ever leave me
Well life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me

God only knows what I'd be without you
God only knows what I'd be without you
God only knows

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby you're the best

I got my red dress on tonight
Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight
Got my hair up real big beauty queen style
High heels off, I'm feeling alive

Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above all sizzlin' like your stare
Honey I'm on fire I feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby you're the best

Where Every Night Is Friday Night. Best Music Videos of the 80s to Today's Great Songs. 80s Friday Night show starts at ...10PM New York | 7PM Los Angeles | 3AM London
Introduction
Welcome to FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS - Where Every Night Is Friday Night. Since October 2011.

Over 4+ years ago, I got a wild idea in my head to regularly post fun 80s videos every Friday night. I started to call my regular gig - Friday Night Sessions. It has been a lot of fun taking requests on all sorts of dance videos, top-40, pop, pop-rock and more. I realized (though a friend) that maybe we could do this a bit better via a PAGE. This is that page, and initially asked six friends to co-manage this page with me.

We've kicked the idea around a bit of having Theme Nights, and I like that a lot. So, look on this page for all announcements about #fridaynightsessions and we're glad you're here!


-Sean Cowen, Founder of FNS

Our Page Managers In No Particular Order:


Ross Fergus ...         Andrew Coffman ...  Yonatan Zunger


Matt Tuomala ...       Johnny Zed ...            Samuel Vain


>>>>>>>>>>  We've just added a PUBLIC CALENDAR for FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS here:
_________________________


Ryan Van Sickle

Ryan is thinking about hosting an American Folk Roots Songbook night or something like night.  Old folk/blues to modern folk folk/rock.

Writing songs of character and integrity that resound the timeless and universal, Ryan Van Sickle uniquely translates the themes of love, war, life and death and the epic and mundane struggles within.  Following in the steps of the masters from his native Canada, Ryan draws on the influences of Neil Young, Daniel Lanois, and Leonard Cohen alongside American greats Bruce Springsteen and Emmylou Harris.  With the release of his latest album Ghosts Of The Brokenhearted on iTunes - http://goo.gl/9VZ00 , and on Google Music - http://goo.gl/89RIf, Ryan emerges as a powerful singer songwriter; asserting prowess in building a lyrical highway with a strong voice to carry his listeners on the journey. View his website at ryanvansicklemusic.com

Roger R. H. King
Roger genuinely loves many genres of music as long as it is, as he says, "Worth crankin' up!" Raised on the the sounds of Motown, "Classic" rock, Classical music, R&B, and jazz, he's played drums and sung in numerous unknown bands ranging from blues to country, and jazz to rock.  As a symphonic percussionist, he's also played with many orchestras and other musical productions. A music major in college, he's also been a "personality" on Classic Rock radio, as well as a party DJ in the Springfield area.  Roger's submissions to our page will show off his broad range of tastes and diversity, as he also attempts to educate our audience with facts, stories, and insights about the artists and music.

"I am really looking forward to getting to personally, and musically, know all of you as we head off on this G+ musical journey. Peace, Love, and Crank It!" - RRHK
 
Branden Haize 

Branden Haize first joined Friday Night Sessions as a volunteer "music historian", supplying facts and trivia to videos posted during the Friday night time slot. Soon, he became an official page manager himself, and the host of his own show, Lost in the Haize. When does it air? It's a spontaneous thing, whenever the mood strikes him (and whenever the forum isn't being used by someone else). Branden is also the author of "Darwin's Playground" and "The Prospector", two independent web-series available to read at BrandenHaize.com.

M

no set time
no set theme
M is here to blow off steam
M may or may not do requests 
M basks in the +1s and shares (this helps if you want a request)

Andrew Coffman

Andrew is a long time listener of FNS  and has an abiding interest in remixed songs, as evidenced by his own page +All Remixed Up , but his tastes run the gamut of the entire musical spectrum.

While Andrew may not play any instrument beyond the radio or been involved in the music industry, he has been on 5 of the 7 continents, helped build bridges, dams and refineries where no human has business being at and flown enough miles to make it to the moon and back.

Look for him to roll out the eclectic, the remixed and great tunes you forgot you loved in the wee morning hours of West Coast and get ready to whet your whistle for a midnight snack that's tasty and exotic.


Sarah Lynne aka Metalynne

Metalynne or Sarah Lynne, labels herself as a tried and true metalhead. She listens to all sub-genres of metal from heavy metal to metalcore, anything she can bang her head to. Metalynne has a show here on FNS called Subdural Hematoma. Her show is dedicated to all things metal music related. She has been known to bring the studio to flames and we have even had to call security a few times because of her antics.

Look out for her every Sunday night to bring you the most face melting metal show she can. And as Metalynne likes to say, "Horns up! \m/"


Samuel 'Zenman' Vain

Samuel ‘Zenman” Vain was born and grew up in California, he’s a Metalhead to the core that evolved into it. His childhood in the 70’s and teens in the 80’s allowed him to witness the evolution of Rock & Roll into Hard Rock and then Metal. He’s a bit on the crazy side being an accomplished artist so you can never tell what video he might post.

As a youngster he loved the Beatles, Jimmi Hendrix, Kansas, Foreigner, and Black Sabbath in addition to many more. As much fun as they were he needed more guitar and drums as he grew. Suddenly there was Van Halen, Scorpions, Iron Maiden, Stormtroopers of Death, Alice Cooper, and this tape he was given in Los Angeles by a guy in a band that he wore out but never could remember the band name. Hearing ‘Hit the lights’ for the first time in 3 years solved that mystery, and the search for more music like that was on. When Slayer came it was like seeing a divinity!

Now that there are bands that can cause aneurisms there is blood all over his walls when it suits him but there is a chill and romantic side to watch, they pop in randomly. He can be sweet, dark, funny, and very serious, but it’s the eccentric parts that make his mind fun.
