Radio XLIL, side B, track 7: “Emotions In Motion” by Billy Squier

Billy Squier - Emotions in MotionOh, Billy Squier, welcome to the blog!  When I recorded this song, I knew absolutely nothing about you.  I would go on to record several other songs by you in the next year, and I don’t think I ever knew any of those songs were  by you, either.  I didn’t even know the names to the songs most of the time.  For example, I did not know that the name of this song was “Emotions In Motion”.  I thought it was just called “Emotions”.  And I thought you were singing “Emotions, emotions” instead of “Emotions in motion”.  I think “Emotions” was actually probably the only word I knew to this song.  Which is fine, because I don’t think I would have known what you were singing about anyway.  Like when you talk about a back-street boy sucking you in.  I think I got it now, Billy Squier, but it’s very doubtful I would have had an inkling what you were singing about then.  At the end of the day, though, it doesn’t really matter, Billy Squier.  All I knew was that this song was cool, and when it comes to rock and roll, isn’t that all that really matters?

“Emotions In Motion”

<awesome Billy Squier jam>

Bend ya back by the light’a the sun
Ya come to the business, you’re the number one

When

Twilight comes, you’re a runner in the night
It turns you on like a hot tail-light

Mmm

Get down, ya really get down, ya never let down

Come down, ya never come down, ya never come down

Emotions in motion

Emotions in motion, yeah

Emotions in motion

Emotions in motion

Back-street boy gonna sell ya some sin
He’ll wind you up, he gonna suck you in

The blood say yes
The mind say no
The voice in ya ear say ya go, go, goooo

Yes

Run down, ya really run down, ya really run down

Cool down, ya never cool down, ya better cool down

Emotions in motion

Emotions in motion, yeah

Emotions in motion

Emotions in motion

<awesome Billy Squier jam>

Give yourself to a life of extremes
Ya into the action, it’s a part’a ya dream

Woo

Now there’re some things
Ya never can tell, but when the door lies open throw ya coins in the well

Get down, ya really get down, ya really get down
Right now, ya want it right now
Hold tight now

Emotions in motion

Emotions in motion

Emotions in motion

Emotions in motion

Emotions in motion

Emotions in motion
