Radio 61, side B, track 4: “Cruising For Bruising” by Basia

basiaOh, Basia, not only have you given me the gift of your music for the holidays, but you’ve helped me save some time, too.  I’m in the middle of my annual trip to NOLA for X-mas with the better half, which is full of magic, gumbo, and anxiety.  And not a lot of time to blog.  So since I’ve already written about this one already, I’m letting myself off the hook. Not that I was holding myself to very high standards to begin with. . .

“Cruising For Bruising”

<awesome Basia jam>

Cryyyy

Come to me and cryyyy

I know, I know, I know it’s not eeeasy
Your heart is aching
But so is mine
But so is miiiiiiiiine, hoooow

Where we went wrong
‘Cause I feel so strong we are cruisin’ for bruising, my baby
Second chaaaaance, baby, but now we need time, time to learn, time to understaaaand
