Radio VIII, side A, track 1: “Jackie” by Blue Zone UK

Oh, Blue Zone UK, this song confused me.  Also, I loved it.  But it confused me.  Because a girl was singing it, and she was singing it to someone named Jackie.  And yeah, I understood that there were some guys named Jackie, like Jackie Mason and Jackie Cooper, but in the back of my head, I didn’t really think you were singing this to a guy.  But hey, girls can sing songs that are guy-centric.  I mean, Tiffany did it with “I Saw Him Standing There”, so no problem.  Except when Tiffany sang it, she changed the pronouns so it sounded like a girl singing to a boy.  So what could this mean, Blue Zone UK?  I mean, I didn’t know a lot about “passion”, but I knew that this was a passionate song.  Heck, Blue Zone UK, this song was downright hot.  But why would a girl be singing such a passionate, hot song to another girl?  Because clearly something happened that night you’re singing about, something pretty crazy awesome by the sound of it.  It didn’t make any sense, Blue Zone UK.  I guess the answer is that Jackie was indeed a boy, a boy with maybe not the manliest or most grown-up sounding name in the world, but a boy nonetheless.  That had to be it.  Right, Blue Zone UK?  Yeah, definitely, that’s what it had to be.

“Jackie”

I woke up with your name on my lips
I woke up with your lips
On my imagination

I woke up with your name on my lips
I woke up with your lips on my imagination
Oo oo oo!

Did you wake up with my name on your lips
Or am I all alone in this infatuation

Ah ha (ah ha)
Oh yeah (oh yeah)
Uh (uh)
Uh (uh)
Aaaaaa! (Oh oh oh oh)
Jackie, when you touched my soul in the candlelight
(Oh oh, Jackie)
Jackie, when I lost control in the heat of the night
(Oh oh oh oh)
Jack, Jack, Jackie
Can’t get you off my mind

I woke up thinking it was you
But I was all alone in my lonely room
Oo oo oo!

Did the same thing happen to you
If you don’t feel what I feel I don’t know what I’d do

Ah ha (ah ha)
Oh yeah (oh yeah)
Uh (uh)
Uh (uh)
Aaaaaa! (Oh oh oh oh)
Jackie, when you touched my soul in the candlelight
(Oh oh, Jackie)
Jackie, when I lost control in the heat of the night
(Oh oh oh oh)
Jack, Jack, Jackie
Say, say, say you feel the same
Can’t get you off my mind

I didn’t know a love could feel this good
I never let anyone inside

I pushed and I shoved
I fought off the love
But with Jackie I’ve got nothin’ to
Hide

<awesome saxophone solo>

Ah ha (ah ha)
Oh yeah (oh yeah)
Uh (uh)
Uh (uh)
Aaaaaa! (Oh oh oh oh)
Jackie, when you touched my soul in the candlelight
(Oh oh, Jackie)
Jackie, when I lost control in the heat of the night
(Oh oh oh oh)
Jack, Jack, Jackie
Come on, say you feel the same
Can’t get you off my mind
(Jack, Jack, Jackie)
(Say, say, say you feel the same)
Can’t get you off my mind
