Radio 53, side A, track 6: “Lean On Me” by Club Nouveau, #54 on The Top 90 of the ’80s

Club Nouveau - Lean On MeOh, Club Nouveau, I just don’t have anything to say about this song.  It’s not a bad thing, though, Club Nouveau.  It’s just that this song is so happy and pleasant, it doesn’t evoke strong emotions, positive or negative.  It does evoke emotions, yes, and all pleasant ones, just nothing that makes me feel I have to fiercely type away to explain why I love this song.  I just do.  It’s just a great song that I’ve probably heard a million times at this point, not just because I listened to this tape a lot (which I did), but also because it’s one of those songs that just seems like it’s always existed.  Like, I hadn’t really thought about it until just now, but I’m pretty certain that “We be jammin'” occasionally pops into my head just because.  And considering all the horrible things that can show up in there (like, for instance, the latest episode of “Game Of Thrones”. . .I’m too sensitive for that show, Club Nouveau), it’s nice to know that you guys are in there, too, politely asking me to lean on you when I need a friend.  Which I do need after that last “Game Of Thrones” episode.  Seriously, Club Nouveau, where were you guys Sunday night when I really needed you?

Some

Times in our lives

We all have pain

We all have sorrow

But

If we are wise

We know that there’s

Always tomorrow

Lean on me

When you’re not strong

And I’ll be your friend (I’ll be your friend)
I’ll help you
Carry on (lean on me)
For

It won’t be long

‘Til I’m gonna need

Somebody to leeeean on

Please

Swallow your pride

If I have things

You need to borrow

For

No one can fill

Those of your needs

Thatchoo won’t let show

Lean on me

When you’re not strong

And I’ll be your friend (I’ll be your friend)
I’ll help you
Carry on (lean on me)

For

It won’t be long

‘Til I’m gonna need

Somebody to leeeean on

Just call
On me, brother

When you need a hand

We all need somebody
To leeeean on

I just might
Have a problem
That you understand

We all need somebody
To leeeean on

Lean on me

When you’re not strong (when you’re not strong)
And I’ll be your friend (I’ll be your friend)
I’ll help you
Carry on (lean on me)
For

Said’a it won’t be long (won’t be too long)
‘Til I’m gonna need
Somebody to leeeean on

We be jammin’

We be jammin’, hey now

We be jammiiiiin’

We be jammin’

We be jammin’, a-hey

We be jammiiiiiiiiiiiiiin’
