Needles and Pins


its not true that a generation only appreciates its own music. i see nothing special about new wave. nor rap except when its a foreign language. (spanish or french). i have loved motown, bubblegum music from the 1960s ever since i was born. beginning with the beatles. there is something about music that was created before i was born. that includes classic jazz, the 20s, 30s, 40s, etc. bubblegum music is easy listening, simple and catchy. innocent and nostalgic. no explanations.

Needles and Pins is by Jack Nitzsche & Sonny Bono
first recorded by Jackie DeShannon

I saw her today,
I saw her face
It was a face I love
And I knew I had to run away
And get down on my knees and pray that they go away
Still it begins
Needles and pins
Because of all my pride
The tears I gotta hide

Oh! I thought I was smart
I stole her heart
Didn't think I do
But now I see
She's worse to him than me
Let her go ahead
Take his love instead
And one day she will see just how to save me
And get down on her knees

That's how it begins
She'll feel those needles and pins - oh, no - oh, no
Why can't I stop and tell myself I'm wrong,
I'm wrong, so wrong
Why can't I stand up and tell myself I'm strong

Because I saw her today
I saw her face
It was a face I love
And I knew I had to run away
And get down on my knees and pray that they go away
Still it begins
Needles and pins
Because of all my pride
The tears I gotta hide Hey! Needles and pins
Needles and pins
Needles and pins

I know that song, and yes I like bubblegum pop too. Especially the song "Yummy yummy yummy I've got love in my tummy..."

downloaded a copy of the song from kazaa but the song was credited to a del shannon and not jackie shannon, and a guy was singing so i guess what i got was not the oirginal. i liked the song, though.
