You drink your coffee And I sip my tea And we're sitting here Playing so cool Thinking, what will be will be But's getting kind of late now Oh I wonder if you'll stay now, Stay now, stay now, stay now Or will you just politely Say goodnight. I move a little closer to you Not knowing quite what to do And I'm feeling all finger and thumbs I spill my tea Oh silly me But's getting kind of late now I wonder if you'll stay now, Stay now, stay now, stay now Or will you just politely Say goodnight. And then we touch Much too much This moment has been waited for a long long time Make me shiver, 'n' makes me quiver This moment I'm so unsure This moment I've waited for Oh is it somerthing you've been waiting for Waiting for too Take up your eyes Bare your soul Gather me to you And make me whole Tell me your secrets Sing me the song Sing it to me in the silent tongue But's getting kind of late now I wonder if you'll stay now, Stay now, stay now, stay now Or will you just politely Say goodnight.

Mirror in the bathroom Please talk free The door is locked Just you and me Can I take you to a restaurant That's got glass tables You can watch yourself While you are eating Mirror in the bathroom I just can't stop it Every Saturday you see me Window shopping Find no interest in the Racks and shelves Just a thousand reflections Of my own sweet self, self, Mirror in the bathroom You're my mirror in the bathroom You're my mirror in the bathroom You're my mirror in the bathroom Mirror in the bathroom Recompense For all my crimes Of self defense Cures you wiser Make no sense Drift gently into Mental illness Mirror in the bathroom Please talk free The door is locked Just you and me Can I take you to a restaurant That's got glass tables You can watch yourself While you are eating Mirror in the bathroom Mirror in the bathroom Mirror in the bathroom Mirror in the bathroom Mirror in the bathroom Mirror in the bathroom

Koide Ins'l, ois is koid und eisig, ois is so weiß und so glitz'rig, ois is wie hinta am Neb'l, genau wie du! Früher warst anders, ois war irgendwie ganz anders, früher, aber bald is ganz finster, und morg'n is kälter wie gestern, genau wie du, genau wie du! Koide Ins'l, so weiß wie Schnee, so koid wie du, moi rauf und meistens runter. Koide Ins'l, da war i mol, da kum i her, bloß du, du gehst da unter. A koide Ins'l, weiß wie Schnee, a koide Ins'l, weiß wie Schnee, a koide Ins'l, koid wie du. Koide Ins'l koane spürt oder sagt was, jeder lebt für si selber und alle red'n von was ander'm, genau wie du, genau wie du. Früher war's anders, ois war irgendwie ganz anders, früher aber immer werd's später und boid is nimmer zum Ändern, genau wie du. Koide Ins'l... Den Song würde ich gerne mal wieder hören..

Made the fatal mistake, Like I did once before, A tendency just to take, Till the purpose turned sour, Strain, take the strain, these days we love, Strain, take the strain, these days we love. Yeah, the only mistake was that you ran away, Avenues lined with trees, strangled words for the day, Yeah, the only mistake, like I made once before, Yeah, the only mistake, could have made it before. Strain, take the strain, these days we love, Strain, take the strain, these days we love. And the only mistake, led to rumours unfound, Led to pressures unknown, different feelings and sounds, Yeah, the only mistake, like I made once before, Yeah, the only mistake, could have made it before.

Look at the stars, Look how they shine for you, And everything you do, Yeah, they were all yellow. I came along, I wrote a song for you, And all the things you do, And it was called "Yellow". So then I took my turn, Oh what a thing to have done, And it was all yellow. Your skin, Oh yeah your skin and bones, Turn into Something beautiful, Do you know, You know I love you so, You know I love you so. I swam across, I jumped across for you, Oh what a thing to do. 'Cause you were all yellow, I drew a line, I drew a line for you, Oh what a thing to do, And it was all yellow. Your skin, Oh yeah your skin and bones, Turn into Something beautiful, Do you know, For you I'd bleed myself dry, For you I'd bleed myself dry. It's true, Look how they shine for you, Look how they shine for you, Look how they shine for, Look how they shine for you, Look how they shine for you, Look how they shine. Look at the stars, Look how they shine for you, And all the things that you do.

Virgin mary was tired So tired Tired of listening to gossip Gossip and complaints They came from next door And a bewildered stream of chatter From all sorts of All sorts of Untidy whores Came from next door Came from next door But some men are chosen from the rest But their disappointment runs with their guests Never would be invited to the funeral rosegarden But their choice don't seem to matter They got swollen breasts and lips that putter And their choice of matter and their scream of chatter Is just a little parasitic scream of whores Screaming whores In the rosegarden funeral of sores Virgin mary was tired So tired of listening to gossip Gossip and complaints In the In the Rosegarden Rosegarden funeral of sores

Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there She would merengue and do the cha-cha And while she tried to be a star Tony always tended bar Across the crowded floor, they worked from eight til four They were young and they had each other Who could ask for more? At the copa (co) Copacabana (Copacabana) The hottest spot north of Havana (here) At the copa (co) Copacabana Music and passion were always the fashion At the copa they fell in love Copa, Copacabana His name was Rico He wore a diamond He was escorted to his chair, he saw Lola dancing there And when she finished, he called her over But Rico went a bit to far Tony sailed across the bar And then the punches flew and chairs were smashed in two There was blood and a single gun shot But just who shot who? At the copa (co) Copacabana (Copacabana) The hottest spot north of Havana (here) At the copa (co) Copacabana Music and passion were always the fashion At the copa, she lost her love (Copa, Copacabana) (Copa, Copacabana) (Copacabana) like in Havana (Copa, banana) Music and passion were always in fashion Her name is Lola, she was a showgirl But that was thirty years ago, when they used to have a show Now it's a disco, but not for Lola Still in dress she used to wear Faded feathers in her hair She sits there so refined, and drinks herself half-blind She lost her youth and she lost her Tony Now she's lost her mind At the copa (co) Copacabana (Copacabana) The hottest spot north of Havana (here) At the copa (co) Copacabana Music and passion were always in fashion At the copa don't fall in love don't fall in love

Nice to meet you, where you been? I could show you incredible things Magic, madness, heaven, sin Saw you there and I thought Oh my God, look at that face You look like my next mistake Love's a game, want to play? New money, suit and tie I can read you like a magazine Ain't it funny, rumors fly And I know you heard about me So hey, let's be friends I'm dying to see how this one ends Grab your passport and my hand I can make the bad guys good for a weekend So it's gonna be forever Or it's gonna go down in flames You can tell me when it's over If the high was worth the pain Got a long list of ex-lovers They'll tell you I'm insane 'Cause you know I love the players And you love the game 'Cause we're young and we're reckless We'll take this way too far It'll leave…

Turn off your mind, relax and float down stream It is not dying, it is not dying Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void It is shining, it is shining Yet you may see the meaning of within It is being, it is being Love is all and love is everyone It is knowing, it is knowing... ... that ignorance and hates may mourn the dead It is believing, it is believing But listen to the colour of your dreams It is…

Bernie Rhodes knows don't argue Why must you record my phone calls? Are you planning a bootleg LP? Said you've been threatened by gangsters Now it's you, that's threatening me Can't fight corruption with con tricks They use the law to commit crime And I dread, dread to think what the future will bring When we're living in gangster time Don't call me scar face Can't interrupt while I'm talking Or they'll confiscate all your guitars And catch 22 says if I sing the truth They won't make me an overnight star Don't offer us legal protection They use the law to commit crime I dread to think what the future will bring When we're living in gangster time Bernie Rhodes knows don't argue

When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful, A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical. And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily, Joyfully, playfully watching me. But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible, Logical, responsible, practical. And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable, Clinical, intellectual, cynical. There are times when all the world's asleep, The questions run too deep For such a simple man. Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned I know it sounds absurd But please tell me who I am. Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical, Liberal, fanatical, criminal. Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're Acceptable, respectable, presentable, a vegetable! At night, when all the world's asleep, The questions run so deep For such a simple man. Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned I know it sounds absurd But please tell me who I am.

I don't wanna talk About things we've gone through Though it's hurting me Now it's history I've played all my cards And that's what you've done too Nothing more to say No more ace to play The winner takes it all The loser's standing small Beside the victory That's her destiny I was in your arms Thinking I belonged there I figured it made sense Building me a fence Building me a home Thinking I'd be strong there But I was a fool Playing by the rules The gods may throw the dice Their minds as cold as ice And someone way down here Loses someone dear The winner takes it all The loser has to fall It's simple and it's plain Why should I complain? But tell me does she kiss Like I used to kiss you? Does it feel the same When she calls your name? Somewhere deep inside You must know I miss you But what can I say? Rules must be obeyed The judges will decide The likes of me abide Spectators of the show Always staying low The game is on again A lover or a friend A big thing or a small The winner takes it all I don't wanna talk If it makes you feel sad And I understand You've come to shake my hand I apologize If it makes you feel bad Seeing me so tense No self-confidence But you see The winner takes it all The winner takes it all...

Woke up this morning, and the streets were full of cars; All bright and shiny like they'd just arrived from mars. And as I stumbled through last night's drunken debris, The paperboy screamed out the headlines in the street. Another war, and now the pound is looking weak. And tell me, have you read about the latest freak? We're bingo numbers, and our names are obsolete. Why do I feel bitter when I should be feeling sweet? Hello, hello, turn your radio on; Is there anybody out there? Help me sing my song. La, la, la, life is a strange thing. Just when you think you learned how to use it, It's gone. Woke up this morning, and my head was in a daze. A brave new world has dawned upon the human race, Where words are meaning less, and everything's surreal. Gonna have to reach my friends to find out how I feel. And if I taste the honey - is it really sweet? And do I eat it with my hands or with my feet? Does anybody really listen when I speak, Or will I have to say it all again next week? Hello, hello, turn your radio on; Is there anybody out there? Help me sing my song. Hello, hello, turn your radio on; Is there anybody out there? Tell me what went wrong. La, la, la, life is a strange thing. Life is a strange thing. Hello, hello, turn your radio on; Is there anybody out there? Help me sing my song. La, la, la, life is a strange thing. Just when you think you learned how to use it, It's gone.

about

Every year we challenge electronic artists to do some music from an artist different to themselves. It's always an exciting result to hear dark songs made pop, pop songs made dark, rock songs made synthy and so forth. The results and choices are frequently surprising but never anything less than brilliant. We are hugely thankful to all the artists that take part in this madness every year.
