Radio XXI, side B, track 4: “Make It Real” by The Jets, #52 on The Top 88 of ’88

Radio XXI  Make It Real - The JetsOh, The Jets, so good to see you on the countdown again, and this time with a song that’s near and dear to my heart, for the simple fact it was the first song on only the second tape that I recorded off the radio.  Well, it’s not just that simple fact, The Jets.  It’s also the simple fact that this song is simply wonderful.  I’ve bemoaned this fact before and I’m sure I’ll bemoan it again, but remember the days when singers were able to hold one long beautiful note without running up and down the entire scale?  Well, I’m sure YOU do, The Jets, because this is a great example of how wonderful a fairly simple, straightforward love song can be.  This one’s beautiful, and I’m glad that the radio gods saw fit to include you in the best of 1988, because indeed you were.

“Make It Real”

Tonight
It’s been a year
We met each other here
Here I am
All alone
As thoughts of you go on

Hear me cryin’ out to you
You said, “Never, never
Would I leave”
Here’s a tear from me to you
And maybe it will
Make you hear me

I loved you

You didn’t feel the same

Though we’re apart
You’re in my heart
Give me one more chance to
Make it
Reeeal

In a dream
You are here

You smile and hold me near

And in my heart
I’ll pretend
That you are here again

Hear me cryin’ out to you
You said, “Never, never
Would I leave”
Here’s a tear from me to you
And maybe it will
Make you hear me

I loved you

You didn’t feel the same

Though we’re apart
You’re in my heart
Give me one more chance to
Make it
Reeeeeal

<awesome The Jets jam>

I loved you

You didn’t feel the same

Though we’re apart
You’re in my heart
Give me one more chance to
Make it
Reeeeeeeeeal

Give me one more chance to
Make it
Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeal
