Sometimes it can feel like I’m alone When you’re not around and I’m on my own But there is one thing, that’s not so hard to do Because you, you make lovin’ you easy When you smile, everything’s alright Yes, you, you make lovin’ you easy When your arms are holding me tight Every time you leave, I miss you so I can’t bear the thought of letting you go But when you kiss me, my world just seems so simple Because you, you make lovin’ you easy When you smile, everything’s alright Yes, you, you make lovin’ you easy When your arms are holding me tight You, you make lovin’ you easy When you smile, everything’s alright, alright Yes, you, you make lovin’ you easy (easy) When your arms are holding me tight Because you, you make lovin’ you easy

Baby Be Mine 03:07
Baby, won’t you be my baby? Won’t you come and stay with me? Baby be mine Crazy, you drive me crazy Won’t you come and save me? Baby be mine. Cos you’ve been messin’ with my head And my heart it needs you so Some things are better left unsaid But I’ve got to let you know Wo-oh baby, won’t you be my baby? Won’t you come and stay with me? Baby be mine Crazy, you drive me crazy Won’t you come and save me? Baby be mine Baby, won’t you be my baby? Won’t you come and stay with me? Baby be mine

It’s not the way you kiss me It’s not the way you smile It’s not the way you touch me or hold me for a while It’s not the way you tell me that forever you’ll be true It’s the way you love me baby It’s the way you love me like you do It’s not the way you tempt me It’s not the way you talk It’s not the way you look at me or watch me as I walk It’s not the way you understand the things I’m goin’ through It’s the way you love me baby It’s the way you love me like you do It’s not the little things that make me feel so right It’s not the diamond rings that keep me warm at night It’s not the way you squeeze me And cuddle up so tight It’s not the way you hold my hand to watch the stars at night It’s not the way your kisses mean my heart is never blue It’s the way you love me baby It’s the way you love me like you do It’s the way you love me baby It’s the way you love me like you do It’s the way you love me baby It’s the way you love me like you do

Boy Racer 04:09
There he goes, my baby’s movin’ so fast God only knows, I hope this love’s gonna last Cos he’s so fine, when he drives through the night To kiss my lips, and feel me holding him tight There he is, hanging out with his friends I wonder if, he’s talking ‘bout me to them? And jealous girls, can only watch and see That he’s my boy, he’s only eyes for me Now he’s taking me for a ride He opens the door as I get inside Boy Racer – I’ve got a crush on you Boy Racer – do you want me too? Boy Racer – I give my heart to you, you, you When he’s gone, I beg for him to return His engine’s on, I see the hot tyres burn He thrills me so, the way he moves through the gears I wait for him, and round the corner he steers Now he’s taking me for a ride He opens the door as I get inside Boy Racer – I’ve got a crush on you Boy Racer – do you want me too? Boy Racer – I give my heart to you, you, you Boy Racer – I’ve got a crush on you Boy Racer – do you want me too? Boy Racer – I give my heart to you, you, you Then one night, he never came back As I waited there, by the side of the track Then I saw him – he wasn’t alone And then I realised, I was on my own Now he’s taken me for a ride I slam the door and through the window I cried Boy Racer – I had a crush on you Boy Racer – did you want me too? Boy Racer – I gave my heart to you, you, you Boy Racer – I had a crush on you Boy Racer – did you want me too? Boy Racer – I gave my heart to you, you, you

As I wait, snow is falling Every dream, his name I’m calling The nights they seem so empty since he Took the boat away Spring is here, days grow longer With the sun, my heart gets stronger A hope that soon we’ll be together And in my arms he’ll stay For every September I always remember When he said, Baby, I’ll kiss you in the summertime Still I wait, but now I’m praying That he’s safe, the skies are greying I memorise the words he sends me And in my heart he’ll be Time goes by, and still he’s missing Long to feel his lips I’m kissing I want to see him smile and tell me Some day he’ll marry me For every September I always remember When he said, Baby, I’ll kiss you in the summertime For every September I’ll always remember When he said, Baby, I’ll kiss you in the summertime He said, Baby, I’ll kiss you in the summertime Baby, I’ll kiss you in the summertime

Where did all the magic go and where were you? When did all the secrets come and join us in the queue? Where did all the moments go, all memories? Where did all the lies come from? They came too easily Don’t try to hide what we can’t hide Don’t pull the wool over your eyes Don’t call me baby Don’t call me love Don’t call me darlin’ All that romantic stuff Don’t say I love you Don’t even touch Don’t call me baby It’s all too much For me right now Where did all the pain come from, tore us apart? When did all the rain come down and cloud your restless heart? Don’t try to fight what we can’t fight Don’t look through those rose-tinted eyes Don’t call me baby Don’t call me love Don’t call me darlin’ All that romantic stuff Don’t say I love you Don’t even touch Don’t call me baby It’s all too much For me right now Don’t try to hide what we can’t hide Don’t pull the wool over your eyes Don’t call me baby Don’t call me love Don’t call me darlin’ All that romantic stuff Don’t say I love you Don’t even touch Don’t call me baby It’s all too much For me right now Don’t call me baby

about

THE YEARNING are one of the newest groups to sign to Elefant, where we continue to help give new bands a boost, both national and international ones. They were conceived as a studio project led by Britain’s Joe Moore. Many will compare THE YEARNING to bands like THE SCHOOL or CAMERA OBSCURA, and although there are aesthetic overlaps, there are also substantial differences in the way they conceive music and turn it into something very special of their own. Their sound is lighter, maybe closer to Phil Spector’s wall of sound, and they give it a dreamy tone with accentuated innocence, some of their songs giving off the sense of young romance in a way that owes its debt to Irving Berlin and Brian Wilson. With the delicious voice of Maddie Dobie (only 15 years old) and the collaboration of Justyna Halas (vocals), Gordon Campbell (guitar), Mark Kiff (guitar) and Zoe Illes (cello), they are capable of evoking some of the greatest moments of Motown, somewhere between doo-wop, pop-soul and the classic sixties sound.

This makes us proud to present their first release, a 10” Mini-LP entitled “Jukebox Romance” that really shows the best of all the good things THE YEARNING have to offer: innocent, exciting, hyper-melodic songs. This Mini-LP has A-side that stars three songs extolling the wonder of sweet, young love while the B-side is focused on the more bitter aspects of relationships. So, “You Make Loving’ You Easy” preciously and elegantly unfolds all the sweetness of Dusty Springfield or Blossom Dearie. “Baby Be Mine” is closer to the immediacy of THE MARVELETTES, THE PARIS SISTERS or Little Peggy March, with its small echoes of doo-wop. “The Way You Love Me” closes the “positive” trilogy with a folkier tone, but with the special charm of Skeeter Davis, Sandy Posey, and Jackie DeShannon. “Boy Racer” opens the round of sad stories with a melancholy-laden air and marvelous arrangements in the tradition of the best of THE RONETTES. “Kiss You in The Summertime” accentuates the jazz and lounge tones with BEACH BOY-styled harmonies. “Don’t Call Me Baby” brings things to a climatic close with its overwhelming, hyper-addictive, catchy chorus.

So we are celebrating this amazing introduction of one of our newest bands, who are ready to leave us all broken-hearted but at the same time thrilled with their unforgettable songs. Pay attention to THE YEARNING’s next steps, because their future is beyond promising.
