Through The Barricades by Spandau Ballet

Through The Barricades
by Spandau Ballet

Mother doesnt know where love has gone
She says it must be youth
That keeps us feeeling strong
See it in her face, thats turned to ice
And when she smiles she shows
The lines of sacrifice
And now I know what theyre saying
When the sun begins to fade
And we made our love on wasteland
And through the barricades
Father made my history
He fought for what he thought
Would set us somehow free
He tought me what to say in school
I learned off by heart
But now thats torn in two
And now I know what theyre saying
In the music of the parade
We made our love on wasteland
And through the barricades
Born on different sides of life
We feel the same
And feel all of this strife
So come to me when Im asleep
Well cross the line
And dance upon the street
And now I know what theyre saying
When the drums begin to fade
We made our love on wasteland
And through the barricades
Oh, turn around and Ill be there
Theres a scar through my heart
But Ill bare it again
I thought? we were the human race
But we were just another border-line-case
And the stars reach down and tell us
That theres always one escape
I dont know where love has gone
And in this trouble land
Desperation keep us strong
Fridays child is full of soul
With nothing left to lose
Theres everything to go
And now I know what theyre are saying
Its a terrible beauty weve made
So we make our love on? wasteland
And through the barricades
Now I know what theyre are saying
As hearts go to their graves
We made our love on? wasteland
And through the barricades.

Gold by Spandau Ballet

Gold
by Spandau Ballet

Thank you for coming home
Im sorry that the chairs are all worn
I left them here I could have sworn
These are my salad days
Slowly being eaten away
Just another play for today
Oh but Im proud of you,but Im proud of you
Theres nothing left to make me feel small
Luck has left me standing so tall
Gold
Always believe in your soul
Youve got the power to know
Youre indestructable
Always believe in,because you are
Gold
Glad that youre bound to return
Theres something I could have learned
Youre indestructable,always believe in
After the rush has gone
I hope you find a little more time
Remember we were partners in crime
Its only two years ago
The man with the suit and the pace
You know that he was there on the case
Now hes in love with you,hes in love with you
And my love is like a prison wall
But you could leave me standing so tall
Gold
Always believe in your soul
Youve got the power to know
Youre indestructable
Always believe in,because you are
Gold
Glad that youre bound to return
Theres something I could have learned
Youre indestructable,always believe in

Heart Of Gold by Johnny Hates Jazz

Heart Of Gold
by Johnny Hates Jazz

Shes a girl who likes her living
Never tired of always giving
Faceless men pay for the pleasure
And the nights go on and on

(chorus)
Walking in the street
For a handful money
Love dont come cheap
With a heart of gold
Shes indiscreet

But to me, girl, its funny
That they pay for the love
Of a girl with a pure
Heart of gold

She aint hungry for a lover
When its over, theres another
Loneliness wont be a problem
When the nights go on and on

(chorus)
But something about her makes me cry
The light is fading from her eyes
Memories of girlish purity
Where love surrenders

...and the nights go on and on

Turn Back The Clock by Johnny Hates Jazz

Turn Back The Clock
by Johnny Hates Jazz

Another day is ended
And I still cant sleep
Remembering my yesterdays
I begin to weep
If I could have it over
Live my life again
I wouldnt change a single day

(chorus)
I wish that I could turn back the clock
Bring the wheels of time to stop
Back to the days when life was so much better

Lying here in silence
Picture in my hand
Of a boy I still resemble
But I no longer understand
And as the tears run freely
How I realise they were the best years of my life

(chorus)

You might say its just
A case of giving up
No
But without these memories where is the love
Where is the love

If I could have it over
Live my life again
I wouldnt change a single day

(chorus)

Why cant I turn back the clock
Bring the wheels of time to a stop
Back to the days
Oh no no
I remember when
Life was so good
Id go back Id I could
Oh oh I wouldnt change a single day
Dont let the memories slip away
I wouldnt change a single day
Dont let the memories slip away

Never Tear Us Apart by INXS

Never Tear Us Apart
by INXS

Don't ask me
What you know is true
Don't have to tell you
I love your precious heart

I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never tear us apart

We could live
For a thousand years
But if I hurt you
Id make wine from your tears

I told you
That we could fly
cause we all have wings
But some of us dont know why

I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never ever tear us apart

Need You Tonight by INXS

Need You Tonight
by INXS

All you got is this moment
Ttwenty-first century's yesterday
You can care all you want
Everybody does yeah that's okay

So slide over here
And give me a moment
Your moves are so raw
I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know
You're one of my kind

I need you tonight
'Cause I'm not sleeping
There's something about you girl
That makes me sweat

How do you feel
I'm lonely
What do you think
Can't take it all
Whatcha gonna do
Gonna live my life

I've been losing you by A-ha

I've been losing you
by A-ha

It wasn't the rain that washed away...
Rinsed out the colours of your eyes
Putting the gun down on the bedside table
I must have realized

It wasn't the rain
That made no difference
And I could have sworn it wasn't me
Yet I did it all so coldly
...almost slowly
Plain for all to see

Oh c'mon please now
Talk to me
Tell me; things I could find helpful
How can I stop now...
Is there nothing I can do
I have lost my way
I've been losing you

I can still hear our screams competing
You're hissing your s's like a snake
Now in the mirror stands
Half a man
I thought no one could break

It wasn't the rain
That made no difference
...nervously drumming on:Run away
But I want the guilt to get me
Thoughts to wreck me
Preying on my mind

So, please now
Talk to me
Tell me; things I could find helpful
For how can I stop now...
Is there nothing I can do
I have lost my way
I've been losing you


Crying in the rain by A-ha

Crying in the rain
by A-ha

I'll never let you see
The way my broken heart is hurting me
I've got my pride and I know how to hide
All my sorrow and pain
I'll do my crying in the rain

If I wait for stormy skies
You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
You'll never know that I still love you so
Though the heartaches remain
I'll do my crying in the rain

Raindrops falling from heaven
Could never take away my misery
But since we're not together
I pray for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you'll never see

Someday when my crying's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool
But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
I'll do my crying in the rain

I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain

The Living Daylight by A-ha

The Living Daylight
by A-ha

Hey driver
where're we going? I swear my nerves are showing

Set my hopes up way too high
living's in the way we die.

Comes the morning and the headlights fade in rain

Of hundred thousand people I'm the one they frame.
I've been waiting long for one of us to say:
Save the darkness
let it never fade away -
In the living daylights
in the living daylights.

Alright
hold on tight now
it's down
down to the wire

Set your hopes up way too high
living's in the way we die.

Comes the morning and the headlights fade away

Hundred thousand changes
everything's the same.
I've been waiting long for one of us to say:
Save the darkness
let it never fade away -
In the living daylights
living daylights
living daylights.

Comes the morning and the headlights fade away

Hundred thousand people
I'm the one they frame
In the living daylights
in the living daylights.

Living daylights
- set your hopes up way too high
Living daylights
- living's in the way we die -
Living daylights
- set your hopes up way too high -
Living daylights
- living's in the way we die -

The Sun Always Shines On TV by A-ha

The Sun Always Shines On TV
by A-ha

Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on T.V
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me
To me...

I Reached inside myself
And found nothing there
To ease the pressure of
My ever worrying mind
All my powers waste away
I fear the crazed and lonely looks
The mirror's sending me
These Days
Please don't ask me to defend
The shamefull lowlands
Of the way I'm drifting
Gloomily through time

I reached inside myself today
Thinking there's got to be some way
To keep my troubles distant

Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on TV
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me

Away by The Bolshoi

Away
by The Bolshoi

We're in love,let's be together
happy times or heavy weather
Mother says, "today's a special day"
So let's not fight, o.k....yeah

When you were at school you were a honey
The boys all loved you, you loved the money
The boys would stare, you'd cross your legs
And then you'd toss your hair

Away
Yes you get by
Away

Money's scarce, but family honor
Brings it home brings it home
And down the shop, the tongues they snicker
TV dinners, beer and liquor...oh yeah

Skeletons fall out of cupboards
Curtains drawn fall open to allow
The light shows up the dust
That plays around your face

(chorus)

Innocence and lies don't make a perfect match
Leave your door unlatched
I know a word can be untrue
And yet still move you

All the time they bring their friends 'round
Dress you up, show you up
And all the time they told you it was true
Well I'll believe you now

But then I just don't know I
Think I have to reconsider, yeah
I know when she got married
She looked fine in white and lacy frills
Oh yeah, she had a baby
It was painful, it was worth it
And all the time they stuck the knife in
Pulled it up and twist it around

(chorus)(x2)

Well that's fine....fine....fine



TV Man by The Bolshoi

TV Man
by The Bolshoi

Wake up, switch on I eat my breakfast
and the picture goes wrong give it a slap,
give it a jog I better hurry
or I'll miss the epilogue ride high without
a saddle down the rapids on
a boat without a paddle
I am the scourge of the high seas just you watch'em running when they hear about me

chorus:

one two three... hail t.v. watching dirty harry made a man of me here
I stand, t.v.
man I've got all the angels
eating out of my hand...
I got the good, bad and ugly traits but even dirty harry was allowed to make mistakes...
knock, knock, there's someone at the door
I can't imagine, I can't imagine
I can't imagine what they come around here for...
could be the rent...
or h.p. whatever it is they gonna bleed me I've got no money...
nothing to borrow just you go away now, don't come back tomorrow

chorus:
it's so hot here under the sun just him and me and a couple of six guns I look at him he looks at me out comes the guns who will it be...

Sunday Morning by The Bolshoi

Sunday Morning
by The Bolshoi

I remember when I was young
Feeling sick on Sunday Morning
I don't wanna do it anymore

Standing in a line with a dirty mind
Clean it up on Sunday Morning
I don't wanna do it anymore

One day a week we turn the cheek (x2)

Chorus:
Oh, how we kneeled down
Oh, we were so quiet
never any light there
I don't care, it's not right there

Get up early, do your hair
Sunday best on Sunday Morning
I don't wanna see it anymore

Tea and toast in the social hall
We had it all on Sunday Morning
I don't wanna see it anymore

Week coming fair, so wash your hair (x2)

(chorus)

Strong to feel, strong to care
You must not steal, you must not swear

(chorus)

I don't wanna do it anymore
I don't wanna see it anymore

April Skies by Jesus And Mary Chain

April Skies
by Jesus And Mary Chain

Hey honey what you trying to say
As I stand here
Dont you walk away
And the world comes tumbling down
Hand in hand in a violent life
Making love on the edge of a knife
And the world comes tumbling down
And its hard
For me to say
And its hard
For me to stay
Im going down
To be by myself
Im going back
For the good of my health
And theres one thing
I couldnt do
Sacrifice myself to you
Sacrifice
Baby baby I just cant see
Just what you mean to me
I take my aim and I fake my words
Im just your long time curse
And if you walk away
I cant take it
But thats the way that you are
And thats the things that you say
But now youve gone too far
With all the things you say
Get back to where you come from
I cant help it
Under the april skies
Under the april sun
Sun grows cold
Sky gets black
And you broke me up
And now you wont come back
Shaking hand, life is dead
And a broken heart
And a screaming head
Under the april sky

Just like honey by Jesus and Mary Chain

Just like honey
by Jesus and Mary Chain

Listen to the girl
As she takes on half the world
Moving up and so alive
In her honey dripping beehive
Beehive
Its good, so good, its so good
So good

Walking back to you
Is the hardest thing that
I can do
That I can do for you
For you

Ill be your plastic toy
Ill be your plastic toy
For you

Eating up the scum
Is the hardest thing for
Me to do

Just like honey (x 17)

The Ramones - Pet Sematary

Under the arc of a weather stain boards
Ancient goblins, and warlords,
Come out the ground, not making a sound,
The smell of death is all around,
And the night when the cold wind blows
No one cares, nobody knows.

I dont want to be buried in a pet sematary
I dont want to live my life again,
I dont want to be buried in a pet sematary
I dont want to live my life again.

Follow victor to the sacred place
This aint a dream, I cant escape
Molars and fangs, the clicking of bones,
Spirits moaning among the tombstones,
And the night, when the moon is bright,
Someone cries, something aint right.

I dont want to be buried in a pet sematary
I dont want to live my life again,
I dont want to be buried in a pet sematary
I dont want to live my life again.

The moon is full, the air is still,
All of the sudden I feel a chain,
Victor is grinning, flesh rotting away,
Skeletons dance, I curse this day,
And the night when the wolves cry out,
Listen close and you can hear me shout.

I dont want to be buried in a pet sematary
I dont want to live my life again,
I dont want to be buried in a pet sematary
I dont want to live my life again, oh, no, oh, no
I dont want to live my life again, oh, no, oh, oh
I dont want to live my life again, oh, no, no, no
I dont want to live my life again, oh, oh

Dancing With Myself
by Billy Idol

On the floor of tokyo
Or down in london town to go, go
With the record selection
With the mirror reflection
Im dancing with myself

When theres no-one else in sight
In the crowded lonely night
Well I wait so long
For my love vibration
And Im dancing with myself

Oh dancing with myself
Oh dancing with myself
Well theres nothing to lose
And theres nothing to prove
Ill be dancing with myself

If I looked all over the world
And theres every type of girl
But your empty eyes
Seem to pass me by
Leave me dancing with myself

So lets sink another drink
cause itll give me time to think
If I had the chance
Id ask the world to dance
And Ill be dancing with myself

Oh dancing with myself
Oh dancing with myself
Well theres nothing to lose
And theres nothing to prove
Ill be dancing with myself

If I looked all over the world
And theres every type of girl
But your empty eyes
Seem to pass me by
Leave me dancing with myself

So lets sink another drink
cause itll give me time to think
If I had the chance
Id ask the world to dance
And Ill be dancing with myself

Oh dancing with myself
Oh dancing with myself
If I had the chance
Id ask the world to dance
If I had the chance
Id ask the world to dance
If I had the chance
Id ask the world to dance

Dancing with myself

Leave me dancing with myself

So lets sink another drink

If I had the chance
Id ask the world to dance
And Ill be dancing with myself

Oh dancing with myself
Oh dancing with myself
If I had the chance
Id ask the world to dance
If I had the chance
Id ask the world to dance
If I had the chance
Id ask the world to dance

It's a nice day for a white wedding.
It's a nice day to start again.

Hey little sister who is it you're with?
Hey little sister what's your vice and wish?
Hey little sister shot gun (oh yeah)
Hey little sister who's your superman?
Hey little sister shot gun!

It's a nice day to start again (come on)
It's a nice day for a white wedding
It's a nice day to start again.

(Pick it up)

Take me back home

Hey little sister what have you done?
Hey little sister who's the only one?
I've been away for so long (so long)
I've been away for so long (so long)
I let you go for so long

It's a nice day to start again (come on)
It's a nice day for a white wedding
It's a nice day to start again.

There is nothin' fair in this world
There is nothin' safe in this world
And there's nothin' sure in this world
And there's nothin' pure in this world
Look for something left in this world
Start again

Come on
It's a nice day for a white wedding
It's a nice day to start again.
It's a nice day to start again.
It's a nice day to start again

Psychedelic Furs - Pretty in pink (unplugged)

Pretty in pink
by Psychedelic Furs



Caroline laughs and
It's raining all day
She loves to be one of the girls
She lives in the place
In the side of our lives
Where nothing is
Ever put straight
She turns herself round
And she smiles and she says
'This is it'

'That's the end of the joke'
And loses herself
In her dreaming and sleep
And her lovers walk
Through in their coats

Pretty in pink
Isn't she?
Pretty in pink
Isn't she?

All of her lovers
All talk of her notes
And the flowers
That they never sent
And wasn't she easy
And isn't she
Pretty in pink
The one who insists
He was first in the line
Is the last to
Remember her name
He's walking around
In this dress
That she wore
She is gone
But the joke's the same

Pretty in pink
Isn't she?
Pretty in pink
Isn't she?

Caroline talks to you
Softly sometimes
She says
'I love you' and
'Too much'
She doesn't have anything
You want to steal
Well
Nothing you can touch
She waves
She buttons your shirt
The traffic
Is waiting outside
She hands you this coat
She gives you her clothes
These cars collide

Pretty in pink
Isn't she?
Pretty in pink
Isn't she?

Psychedelic Furs - Until She Comes

Until She Comes
by Psychedelic Furs

until she comes again
i can hear the things she said
i feel no thoughts to move my head
until she comes again
and with her step, i move my feet
and with her hand, i feel my skin
and with her need, i find i'm saved
and with her dreams, i'm laid
until she comes again
the sun goes out and night comes in
the time goes round and day grows dim
until she comes again
and with her step, i move my feet
and with her hand, i feel my skin
and with her need, i find i'm saved
and with her dreams, i'm laid
until she comes
until she comes
until she comes again
with all my savings and my sins
there's no good reason to begin
until she comes again
and with her step, i move my feet
and with her hand, i feel my skin
and with her need, i find i'm saved
and with her dreams, i'm laid
until she comes
until she comes
until she comes again
with all her dreams tied in her hand
there is no why to understand
until she comes again
until she comes again
the sun goes out and night comes in
the time goes round
and day grows dim
until she comes again

Psychedelic Furs - Ghost In You

Ghost In You
by Psychedelic Furs



A man in my shoes runs a light and
All the papers lied tonight
But falling over you
Is the news of the day
Angels fall like rain
And love (love, love)
Is all of heaven away

Inside you
The time moves
And she don't fade
The ghost in you
She don't fade
Inside you
The time moves
And she don't fade

A race is on, I'm on your side and
Here in you my engines die I'm
In a mood for you
Or running away
Stars come down in you
And love (love, love)
You can't give it away

Inside you
The time moves
And she don't fade
The ghost in you
She don't fade
Inside you
The time moves
And she don't fade

Don't you go
It makes no sense when
All your talk and supermen just
Take away the time
And get in the way
Ain't it just like rain?
And love (love, love)
Is only heaven away

Inside you
The time moves
And she don't fade
The ghost in you
She don't fade

Inside you
The time moves
And she don't fade
The ghost in you
She don't fade

Inside you
The time moves
And she don't fade
The ghost in you
She don't fade

Heaven - Psychedelic Furs

Heaven
by Psychedelic Furs



heaven is the whole of the heart
and heaven don't tear you apart
yeah heaven is the whole of the heart
and heaven don't tear you apart

there's too many kings wanna hold you down
and a world at the window gone underground
there's a hole in the sky where the sun don't shine
and a clock on the wall and it counts my time

and heaven is the whole of the heart
and heaven don't tear you apart
yeah heaven is the whole of the heart
and heaven don't tear you apart

there's a song on the air with a love-you line
and a face in a glass and it looks like mine
and i'm standing on ice when i say that i don't hear planes
and i scream at the fools, wanna jump my train

and heaven is the whole of the heart
and heaven don't tear you apart
yeah heaven is the whole of the heart
and heaven don't tear you apart
yeah heaven
ah heaven
yeah heaven

Psychedelic Furs lyrics - Love My Way

Love My Way
by Psychedelic Furs



There's an army
On the dance floor
It's a fashion
With a gun my love
In a room
Without a door
A kiss is not enough
In
Love my way
It's a new road
I follow where
My mind goes
They'd put us
On a railroad
They'd dearly
Make us pay
For laughing
In their faces
And making it our way
There's emptiness
Behind their eyes
There's dust
In all their hearts
They just want to
Steal us all
And take us all apart
But not in
Love my way
It's a new road
I follow where
My mind goes
So swallow
All your tears my love
And put on
Your new face
You can never win or lose
If you don't
Run the race

Billy Idol - Eyes Without a Face

Eyes Without a Face
by Billy Idol



I'm all out of hope
One more bad dream could bring a fall
When I'm far from home
Don't call me on the phone
To tell me you're alone
It's easy to deceive
It's easy to tease
But hard to get release

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Got no human grace your eyes without a face.

I spend so much time
Believing all the lies
To keep the dream alive
Now it makes me sad
It makes me mad at truth
For loving what was you

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Got no human grace your eyes without a face.

When you hear the music you make a dip
Into someone else's pocket then make a slip.
Steal a car and go to Las Vegas oh, the gigolo pool.
I'm on a bus on a psychedelic trip
Reading murder books tryin' to stay hip.
I'm thinkin' of you you're out there so
Say your prayers.
Say your prayers.
Say your prayers.

Now I close my eyes
And I wonder why
I don't despise
Now all I can do
Is love what was once
So alive and new
But it's gone from your eyes
I'd better realise

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Got no human grace your eyes without a face.
Such a human waste your eyes without a face
And now it's getting worse.

Kasalanan By Orient Pearl



Another one from Orient Pearl circa 1994

Pagsubok by Orient Pearl



Era of New Wave Rock in the Philippines in the early 90s. Although not 80s, I believe that these were inspired by the 80s rock bands.

MYX Music Awards 2007 - Rivermaya/Identity Crisis

History in the making. A performance from one of the Philippines' new wave/alternative music pioneers, IDENTITY CRISIS' Cool Carla (vocals) and Leni (keyboards) together with the most popular band in the Philippines, RIVERMAYA...singing "My Sanctuary" and "Sumigaw Umawit Ka". Both songs originally from Identity Crisis.

Sounds of 80's (Previously called New Wave Mix)



A great new wave 80s mix by djmx3! Thanks man. You totally rock! :)

Vienna

Vienna
by Ultravox

Walked in the cold air
Freezing breath on a window plane
Lying and waiting
A man in the dark in a picture frame
So mystic and soulful
A voice reaching out in a piercing cry
It stays with you until

The feeling has gone only you and I
It means nothing to me
This means nothing to me
Oh, Vienna

The music is weaving
Haunting notes, pizzicato strings
The rhythm is calling
Alone in the night as the daylight brings
A cool empty silence
The warmth of your hand and a cold grey sky
It fades to the distance

The image has gone only you and I
It means nothing to me
This means nothing to me
Oh, Vienna

This means nothing to me
This means nothing to me
Oh, Vienna

My Sanctuary

Enveloped Ideas

Enveloped Ideas
by The Dawn

Singing out my enveloped ideas
Doesn't seem all too bad
Hoping it would be easier
To sing out my enveloped ideas

stanza I:
trying pointlessly to understand
having nothing to say
just shadows what remains boy Inside
this is called is what my envelope ideas

singing out my envelope ideas
Doesn't seem all too bad
Hoping it would be easier
To sing out my enveloped ideas

Interlude:(same as Intro)

stanza II:
Why should I carry this platter? (platter)
Didn't it just pass me by? (by...)
And does one cling right on the edge? (the edge)
I have an empty dream, this here my ideas.

(repeat chorus)

Enjoy The Silence

Enjoy The Silence
by Depeche Mode

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Cant you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Enjoy the silence
