It’s been a year but I think of only you I can’t believe that you said that we were through I don’t know how but I’ve got to get you out of my mind I look around but I only see your face You needed time, you said you wouldn’t mind some space I wish that I could find a way to erase and rewind (Everybody knows) ‘Cause I heard them talking (Everybody knows) ‘Cause I heard the news (Everybody knows) ‘Cause they’ve seen me walking around after you ‘Cause everybody knows I’m still in love with you And everybody knows I can’t let go Yeah everybody knows I’m still in love, I’m still in love with you I’m still in love with you I pretend that you meant nothing to me That I’ve moved on to a higher love you see But they can tell by the way I sigh when I’m talking of you I wish that I could erase you from my head Think of loving someone else’s heart instead But still I hope that when you dream at night you will picture me too (Everybody knows) ‘Cause I heard them talking (Everybody knows) ‘Cause I heard the news (Everybody knows) ‘Cause they’ve seen me walking around after you ‘Cause everybody knows I’m still in love with you And everybody knows I can’t let go Yeah everybody knows I’m still in love, I’m still in love with you I’m still in love with you (Everybody knows) ‘Cause I heard them talking (Everybody knows) ‘Cause I heard the news (Everybody knows) ‘Cause they’ve seen me walking around after you ‘Cause everybody knows I’m still in love with you And everybody knows I can’t let go Yeah everybody knows I’m still in love, I’m still in love with you ‘Cause everybody knows I’m still in love with you And everybody knows I can’t let go Yeah everybody knows I’m still in love, I’m still in love with you I’m still in love with you

It’s a kneejerk reaction I’m out of control It’s the strongest attraction Of body and soul It’s the strangest sensation My fingers go numb An anticipation Of something to come? I don’t know what I am feeling now, tell me doctor please what can I do? Because my heart beats a little bit faster And my tongue gets a little bit tied Yes my heart beats a little bit faster Every time that he is near me or standing by my side It’s a helpless submission My body gives in It’s a dangerous condition That comes from within I don’t know what I am feeling now, tell me doctor please what can I do? Because my heart beats a little bit faster And my tongue gets a little bit tied Yes my heart beats a little bit faster Every time that he is near me or standing by my side I don’t understand this feeling When he looks at me that way My temperature’s always rising It feels like I’m melting away Because my heart beats a little bit faster And my tongue gets a little bit tied Yes my heart beats a little bit faster Every time that he is near me or standing by my side Because my heart beats a little bit faster And my tongue gets a little bit tied Yes my heart beats a little bit faster Every time that he is near me or standing by my side

I would give you more than she could give to you I would make you feel like I belonged to you I would kiss you every night I would make you feel alright I would love you more if you were my boyfriend I would be more true than she could ever be I would love you longer, for eternity She would only say goodbye Break your heart and make you cry I would love you more if you were my boyfriend If you could only see How much you mean to me I’d show you everything that you’re missing I would kiss you every night I would make you feel alright I would love you more if you were my boyfriend If you were my boyfriend If you were my boyfriend If you were my boyfriend If you were my boyfriend

He took my hand, as we walked by the sea And then, when he smiled, yeah he looked straight at me It was then, that I knew For his eyes were so blue That no one, baby, no one else could do ‘Cause he had the eyes of a movie star Looks from the cinema Words that were gentle and true Yes, he had the eyes of a movie star Voice like a soft guitar Tell me, what’s a girl s’posed to do? He walked me home, then he kissed me goodnight And his arms felt so warm, as he held me so tight It was then, I could tell For he looked kinda swell That tomorrow I would see him as well ‘Cause he had the eyes of a movie star Looks from the cinema Words that were gentle and true Yes, he had the eyes of a movie star Voice like a soft guitar Tell me, what’s a girl s’posed to do? It was then, that I knew For his eyes were so blue That no one, baby no one else could do ‘Cause he had the eyes of a movie star Looks from the cinema Words that were gentle and true Yes, he had the eyes of a movie star Voice like a soft guitar Tell me, what’s a girl s’posed to do?

I know something’s changed in the way that you kiss me And there’s something strange in you tonight, oh Then you assure me that I have no cause to worry But if you say there’s really nothing going on Then tell me why’s she making those eyes at you? Why’s she making those eyes at you? Why’s she making those eyes at you? I’ve tried to tell myself that it’s all in my head now That I’m such a fool to act like this, oh But if I’m crazy and I have no cause to worry And if you say there’s really nothing going on Then tell me why’s she making those eyes at you? Why’s she making those eyes at you? Why’s she making those eyes at you? Why’s she making those eyes at you? Why’s she making those eyes at you? Why’s she making those eyes at you? But if I’m crazy and I have no cause to worry And if you say there’s really nothing going on Then tell me why’s she making those eyes at you? Why’s she making those eyes at you? Why’s she making those eyes at you? Why’s she making those eyes at you?

Baby, I saw you and I couldn’t breathe ‘Cause you stole all the air from my lungs like a thief Do I love you now? Do I love you now? If you ask me to dance I won’t try to resist ‘Cause a moment like this is too good to be missed Do I love you now? Do I love you now? ‘Cause it feels so good and it feels so right When you take my hand and I hold on tight And I can’t let go And the music slows and the lights go down As you pull me close and you spin me round And I can’t say no I wanna see you again Baby, you kissed me and I couldn’t speak ‘Cause the way that you kissed made my heart feel so weak Do I love you now? Do I love you now? As we move on the floor we will say not a word ‘Cause the thoughts in our eyes are the lines to be heard Does he love me now? Does he love me now? ‘Cause it feels so good and it feels so right When you take my hand and I hold on tight And I can’t let go And the music slows and the lights go down As you pull me close and you spin me round And I can’t say no I wanna see you again I want to see you every day I want to hear every word you say I want to get to know you better boy So baby won’t you give me a call? ‘Cause it feels so good and it feels so right When you take my hand and I hold on tight And I can’t let go And the music slows and the lights go down As you pull me close and you spin me round And I can’t say no I wanna see you again I wanna see you again I wanna see you again I wanna see you again

Pretty Lies 04:01
Don’t tell me those pretty lies Don’t tell me those pretty lies Don’t tell me those pretty lies Don’t tell me those pretty lies Every time I try to leave you You just pull me back inside Well baby this time I won’t fall for those pretty lies You’ve said enough So you can up and go You had your chance It was yours to blow And now you’re knocking at my door But boy I think you know the score Don’t tell me those pretty lies Don’t tell me those pretty lies Don’t tell me those pretty lies Don’t tell me those pretty lies Every time I try to leave you You just pull me back inside Well baby this time I won’t fall So pack your bags Don’t say goodbye It’s time I found a better guy And now you’re begging me to stay But I can’t listen to what you say Don’t tell me those pretty lies Don’t tell me those pretty lies Don’t tell me those pretty lies Don’t tell me those pretty lies Every time I try to leave you You just pull me back inside Well baby this time I won’t fall for those pretty lies And now you’re knocking at my door But boy I think you know the score Lies

about

Mini-LP 10" [Limited Numbered Edition of 500 copies] [Green Colour Vinyl] **Includes a free digital MP3 download [320 kbps] On sale clicking here: bit.ly/17VAbG0 / Digital Album

We had news about THE YEARNING recently, because of their single “Baby Be Mine”, from their first and marvellous debut Mini-LP, “Jukebox Romance”. With barely time to enjoy such a tasty dish, we have a new menu on our hands, a 10” vinyl (also available in digital format), “Still In Love,” a new Mini-LP where Joe Moore spreads his stylistic wings. This release is even more exciting than the last one, if that’s even possible, and it gives even more solid proof of his incredible abilities as a composer and arranger, with his sights always set on Phil Spector.

Maddie Dobie takes the lead vocals again, and opens the A-side with an enchanting “Everybody Knows (I'm Still In Love With You)” which, with its hints of CAMERA OBSCURA and BELLE & SEBASTIAN, reaches our smiling faces through tremendous trombones, and gives us two unforgettable choruses. “Heart Beats A Little Bit Faster” is one of the prettiest songs we’ve heard in recent years, and one of the songs that best expresses the feeling of falling in love. It’s electrifying, it has sparks, it gives us goose bumps; equal parts THE BEACH BOYS and Jackie DeShannon. “If You Were My Boyfriend” brings us back to the warmth of doo-wop that Carole King or a young Chris Montez would have been proud to have written, with a delicious, sublime melody. “Eyes Of A Movie Star” caresses our skin so softly, with the glamour of Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast At Tiffany’s”, and with the delicacy of Françoise Hardy or Claudine Longet, and it gives us a chorus that leaves us sighing inconsolably.

The B-side skips right past the prettiest parts of love and goes straight for the “pricklier” songs. It opens with “Why’s She Making Those Eyes At You?” an agile song that could perfectly be the music to a choreography between Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens, who are trying to seduce Diana Ross to the rhythm of THE COUNTOURS. “Jeremy” would be one of the songs the THE SCHOOL’s Liz would happily include in her repertoire, with dreamy vocal lines that THE DIXIE CUPS would adore, and it narrates those disputes that always happen in relationships. “See You Again” jumps into the rhythm of Northern Soul and Joe Moore uses the song to write a new treaty about love, the beauty of its birth, the doubts that grow with it, and the bitterness of its end, accompanied only by a harmonica that leaves a layer of strange melancholy over such a light song. “Pretty Lies” closes this Mini-LP, about the deceits that look for a way to avoid the pain, part castanets and part the inevitable trace of “Be My Baby” between tango steps: a song that Stuart Staples of TINDERSTICKS would undoubtedly include on the soundtrack of his life.

Joe Moore’s songs grow with every step, turning THE YEARNING into an incredible reality that surprises us and pushes us to keep moving forward.
