Radio I, side A, track 6: “Let Yourself Go-Go” by Scarlett and Black

Oh, Scarlett and Black, I don’t know who you are, and the one time that I recorded this song off the radio was the only time I’ve ever actually heard it played other than on my tape deck.  But I’m so glad I found you, because this was the first song I heard on the radio that brought me pure unadulterated joy.  Some songs made me want to rock, some songs made me want to wallow in my misery, but from the moment I heard your little chuckle before the music kicks in, I knew that yours was an anthem dedicated to smiling and being happy.  And every time I listen to this rare wonder, that’s what I do.

“Let Yourself Go-Go

(the * means I’m just guessing wildly at the lyrics)

Let yourself go-go (go-go)
Let yourself go-go (go-go)

You gotta live until you die
You might as well have a good time
Take a chance and win a smile
Make an election, you can take a mile *
Whatever reason for talkin’ bad *
Don’t let the muffin bring you down *
I’m on the runway ready to fly
If you wanna come put your life on ice

Let yourself go, let your heart run free
Let yourself go-go (let yourself go-go)
It’s the right time, come and run with me
Let yourself go-go (go-go)

You never laugh, you never cry
Only ever smile if there’s a reason
I’ll tell you something else for what it’s worth
It doesn’t take a miracle to change the world

Let yourself go, let your heart run free
Let yourself go-go (let yourself go-go)
It’s the right time, come and run with me
Let yourself go-go (let yourself go-go)
Let yourself go, let your heart run free
Let yourself go-go (let yourself go-go)
It’s the right time to be outta your tree
Let yourself go go go go go go

Let your heart run free
Come run with me

You turn me on when you smile
You got the mood and the mullet *
I’ll tell you something else, you make me laugh
Sitting across through a photograph *

Let yourself go, let your heart run free
Let yourself go-go (let yourself go-go)
It’s the right time, come and run with me
Let yourself go-go (let yourself go-go)

Let yourself go, let your heart run free
Let yourself go-go (let yourself go-go)
It’s the right time to be outta your tree
Let yourself go go go go go go

Let yourself go, let your heart run free
Let yourself go-go (let yourself go-go)
It’s the right time, come and run with me
Let yourself go-go (let yourself go-go)
