Radio 51, side B, track 2: “(I Just) Died In Your Arms” by Cutting Crew, #80 on The Top 90 of the ’80s

Cutting CrewOh, Cutting Crew, congrats on making it onto the Top 90 of the ’80s!!!  And that’s about all I have to say.  As has been well-established, for some reason I just don’t have much to say about this song.  I don’t know why that is.  It’s a great song.  One of the best.  Obviously.  So I’m not sure why I’ve got little to say about this song.  But I don’t.  This time we’ll chalk it up to getting over a cold and/or allergies.  If this song shows up again, though, I’m going to have to come up with some new excuses.  The good thing about me not having anything to write about, though, is that it means everyone gets to listen to the song that much more quickly.  So maybe this is a reminder that I should just shut the hell up.  I’m sure there are more than a few people who would agree with that sentiment.

“(I Just) Died In Your Arms”

Oh ah!

I just died in yer arms tonight

It must’ve been somethin’ you said
I just died in yer arms toniiight

I keep lookin’ for somethin’ I can’t get

Broken hearts
Lie all around me and I don’t see
An easy way
Ta get out of this

Her diary sits by the bedside table
The curtains are closed
The cat’s in her cradle
Who would’ve thought that a boy like me
Could come to this

Oh-oh-oh, whoa

Whah

I just died in yer arms tonight

Must’ve been somethin’ you said
I just died in yer arms tonight

Oh-oh-oh, whoa
Ah
I just died in yer arms tonight

It must’ve been some kinda kiss

I shoulda walked away

I shoulda walked away

Is there any just cause
For feelin’ like this

On the surface I’m a name on a list
I try ta be discreet

But then blow it again

I’ve lost and found, it’s my final mistake
She’s lovin’ by proxy
No give and all take
‘Cause I’ve been thrilled to fantasy

One too many times

Oh-oh-oh, whoa

Whah

I just died in yer arms tonight

It must’ve been somethin’ you said
I just died in yer arms tonight

Whoa-oh-oh ah
I just died in yer arms tonight

It must’ve been some kinda kiss

I shoulda walked away

I shoulda walked away

It was a long hot night
She made it easy
She made it feel right

But now it’s over
The moment’s gone
I followed my hands not my head
I know I was wrong

<awesome Cutting Crew jam>

Ooo-whah

I just died in yer arms tonight

It must’ve been somethin’ you said
I just died in yer arms toniiight

Ooo-whah
I just died in yer arms tonight

It must’ve been some kinda kiss

I shoulda walked away

I shoulda walked away
