Hey – so, both of you guys seem to be VERY knowledgeable about music, specifically from the 80’s. An era while questionable in its fashion sense, was, so far, my all time favorite era when it came to music.
What I have written below are the lyrics I remember to two songs I love but can not find the titles, nor the group / individual(s) who sang either one. I’ve searched a dozen or so lyric databases, asked friends and family but to no avail. I turn to you guys, Bill…Tracy (hey wait, isn’t “Bill and Tracy” a title of something? A movie or television show?). Sorry.
I turn to you, Tracy…Bill. Sincerely hoping one or both of you can tell me, FINALLY, what the names of these songs are and who sang them.
Number 1. First verse and chorus…
Listening to the wind, baby / Upon a cold dark night under moonlit skies
Looking at your room, baby / I see two silhouettes on the window shade
I can’t believe it, what I’m hearing / your passionate whispers cry out like a hungry wolf
I can’t believe it, what I’m feeling / when the trees all sway as if to share my pain
I thought that we had love in a world that had gone astray / but as I was standing outside your window
I heard every word / and it cuts just like a knife
With every word you said / I cried
All female vocals with a single lead singing. Slow tempo; would have definitely been part of a “Quiet Storm” play list.
Its like fire and rain / your lips are flame
Hot and wet / you make me sweat
Every time your lips touch mine / I get a warm sensation
That no one but you can help me find
When you kiss me / nothing feels as good as this
When you kiss me / boy you know I can’t resist
when you kiss me / you know it’s what I’m waiting for
When you kiss me, baby.
I thought at first this one was by Skyy but Google tells me otherwise. It’s another “Quiet Storm” selection with all female vocals, female lead.
Seriously, I’m just about at my wits end; I’ve been searching for these titles and such for a LONG time now.
:-). If anyone else cares to weigh in, feel free. I REALLY want to finally find out so I can find and download them for good. As it stands, they’re long forgotten on the dusty reels of my cassette tape collection that is currently tucked away in boxes in my garage. I have no means to digitize them at this point so you’d be doing me a big favor by supplying me with the pertinent information which would allow me to conduct a search, finally.
Come to think of it, I’ve got a TON of great music from the 80s on those cassettes. Wonder how much money it would cost to get ’em converted? Wonder if there’s even anyone around who could / would do it? Wonder if they’d do VHS to digital too? I’ve got some classics that I doubt I’ll find on DVD anywhere. Stephen King movies mostly – short films that weren’t released in theaters but instead when direct to VHS. *sigh*
