Song Lyric Sunday

Today Jim gives us the fun theme of a song that references another group in it. There are a zillion songs that mention other artists individually, but finding a group is harder. But as it turns out… lucky! One of my favorite songs (must use songs I like for challenges) mentions a group!

“Hey, Soul Sister” by Train mentions Mr. Mister, so we are good to go. According to the Wiki entry, the lyrics were written by “lead singer Patrick Monahan, Amund Bjørklund, and Espen Lind. It was released as the lead single from the band’s fifth studio album, Save Me, San Francisco (2009).” So, there ya go!

Hey, hey, hey

Your lipstick stains on the front lobe of my left side brains
I knew I wouldn’t forget you, and so I let you go and blow my mind
Your sweet moonbeam, the smell of you in every single dream, I dream
I knew when we collided, you’re the one I have decided who’s one of my kind

Hey soul sister, ain’t that Mr. Mister on the radio, stereo
The way you move ain’t fair, you know!
Hey soul sister, I don’t want to miss a single thing you do, tonight

Hey, hey, hey

Just in time, I’m so glad you have a one-track mind like me
You gave my life direction, a game show love connection we can’t deny
I’m so obsessed, my heart is bound to beat right out of my untrimmed chest
I believe in you, like a virgin, you’re Madonna
And I’m always gonna wanna blow your mind

Hey soul sister, ain’t that Mr. Mister on the radio, stereo
The way you move ain’t fair, you know!
Hey soul sister, I don’t want to miss a single thing you do, tonight

Well you can cut a rug, watching you’s the only drug I need
So gangsta, I’m so thug, you’re the only one I’m dreaming of
You see, I can be myself now finally, in fact there’s nothing I can’t be
I want the world to see you’ll be, with me

Hey soul sister, ain’t that Mr. Mister on the radio, stereo
The way you move ain’t fair, you know!
Hey soul sister, I don’t want to miss a single thing you do, tonight

Hey soul sister, I don’t want to miss a single thing you do
Tonight
Hey, hey, hey
Tonight
Hey, hey, hey
Tonight

  1. Nice song Paula. Mr. Mister was an American pop rock band that had hits with Broken Wings and Kyrie, but if you blinked, you probably missed them, as they only had a short moment in the spotlight.
