Reviews:
Facts:
  • From Ullman's 1983 album of playful, '60s style dance tunes, "You Broke My Heart in 17 Places". (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Kirsty's original version never made the British charts because of a strike taking place at the time that derailed record distribution.

    For the kiddies, "records" were those black, round things you put on old fashioned "turntables" and put needles on to listen to. Ha! The screwy things we did in the old days! (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Ullman's tongue-in-cheek remake of the 1979 Kirsty MacColl song. Her biggest pop hit. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    You've been around for such a long time now
    Oh, maybe I could leave you but I don't know how
    And why should I be lonely ev'ry night
    When I can be with you
    oh, yes, you make it right

    And I don't listen to the guys who say
    That you're bad for me
    And I should turn you away
    'Cause they don't know about us
    And they've never heard of love

    I get a feeling when I look at you
    Wherever you go now, I wanna be there too
    They say we're crazy but I just don't care
    And if they keep on talking
    still they get nowhere

    So I don't mind if they don't understand
    When I look at you and you hold my hand
    'Cause they don't know about us
    And they've never heard of love

    Why should it matter to us
    If they don't approve
    We should just take our chances
    While we've got nothing to lose

    Baby, there's no need for living in the past
    Now I've found good loving; gonna make it last
    I tell the others don't bother me
    'Cause when they look at you
    They don't see what I see

    No, I don't listen to their wasted lines
    Got my eyes wide open and I see the signs
    'Cause they don't know about us
    And they've never heard of love

    No, I don't listen to their wasted lines
    Got my eyes wide open and I see the signs
    'Cause they don't know about us
    And they've never heard of love
    (Stavro Arrgolus)

    I have it as well. I waited until the vinyl was in the bargain bin for 99¢ as I'm such a miserly bastard. As far as music albums made by comedians go, it's seriously underrated and from what I've heard, Stiff didn't pay her nearly enough for the effort. But then, that was their policy for all their artists.

    I bought this album when it first came out specifically for this tune. It reminded me of the Leslie Gore tunes of the 60's.

    Dead videos aren't much fun.

    I sometimes add them, but for popular songs, even oldies, the copyright lawyers always zap them, so I usually don't bother as I almost always have to remove dead videos later.

    That reminds me, after I make the new MMH tomorrow/this week, I'm going to have to go through the thousand+ videos and delete the dead ones yet again.

    This is how to fill out a damn song page, by the powers! ARRRR!

    Of course, this song is one of those "borderline dementia" songs, so it just may find its way into a Mad Music Show with that theme. Or perhaps it already has...
