Song of the Day “Love It All” The Kooks

Lyrics:

Seeing I got this woman here
She loves me all the time
No need for excuses
A lone precious in my mind

And she said love it all, love it all, love it all
And she said love it all, love it all, love it all

My heart was living down
And I’ve been pushed over the line
For on your hand, it be broken
And I’ll be all over this time

And she said love it all, love it all, love it all
And she said love it all, love it all, love it all
And she said love it all, love it all, love it all
And she said love it all, love it all, love it all

And she said love it all, love it all, love it all
And she said love it all, love it all, love it all
And she said love it all, love it all, love it all
And she said love it all, love it all, love it all

Love it all, love it all, love it all
And she said love it all, love it all, love it all

Song of the Day “Runaway” The Kooks

“Runaway”

“Runaway” Acoustic

Lyrics:

Girl, I want to be good to you
I never want to do you no harm
I’m caught up in those fascination
Coping with your alarms
Ignore life if you want to, babe
Do what you’ve got to do
I need some time in the countryside
I want to feel so brand new

You make me run away
You make me run away
You make me run away, angel
You make me run away
Runaway

I see your name on the walls again
I painted you on my toes
Celebrate to resuscitate
We’ll drink to ourselves
You’d collect lovers like gemstones
You talk of them as your friends
Dangle me from your wristchain
Another one lost to the wills of change

You make me run away
You make me run away
You make me run away, baby
You make me run away
Runaway

Still, I try to be good to you
You’ll always be my friend
I’ve spent some time to define my mind
I want to be someone new

Why don’t we run away?
Why don’t we run away
Yeah, we can run away, angel
Yeah, we could run away

Why don’t we run away?
You make me run away, baby
I want to run away
I want to run away

Song of the Day “Pumped Up Kicks” Foster The People

I have had this song stuck in my head for the last 2 weeks. I like the original, but I absolutely love the Kook’s cover of “Pumped Up Kicks”. So turn it up and enjoy both versions to decide for yourself.

Foster the People Original song

The Kooks Cover

 

Lyrics:

Robert’s got a quick hand.
He’ll look around the room, he won’t tell you his plan.
He’s got a rolled cigarette, hanging out his mouth he’s a cowboy kid.
Yeah he found a six shooter gun.
In his dads closet hidden in a box of fun things, and I don’t even know what.
But he’s coming for you, yeah he’s coming for you.

[Chorus x2:]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

Daddy works a long day.
He be coming home late, yeah he’s coming home late.
And he’s bringing me a surprise.
‘Cause dinner’s in the kitchen and it’s packed in ice.
I’ve waited for a long time.
Yeah the slight of my hand is now a quick pull trigger,
I reason with my cigarette,
And say your hair’s on fire, you must have lost your wits, yeah.

[Chorus x2:]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

[Whistling]

[Chorus x3:]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

Song of the Day “Always Where I Need to Be” The Kooks

I fell in love with this song when I heard it in a movie. It’s funny because I don’t remember which movie it was from, but I have never stopped listening to this song. I love everything by The Kooks, but this song will always be my favorite. So turn it up and enjoy.

“Always Where I Need to Be”

“Always Where I Need to Be” Acoustic

Lyrics:

Say whatever you want
Oh, I could never judge you
Be whoever comes into your head
Oh, you know I’ll take you there
You know I’ll take you there

‘Cause I’m always where I need to be
And I always though I would end up
with you, eventually
Do dodo do do do do…

Say whatever you want
Oh, I could never judge you
Say whatever comes into your head
Oh, oh you know I just don’t care
You know I just don’t care

‘Cause I’m always where I need to be
Yeah, and I always thought I would end up
with you, eventually
Do dodo do do do do…

I want mine…
I want mine on the sea
Oh let me be, let me be
I want mine on the sea
Let me be, let me be

‘Cause I’m always where I,
where I need to be
I-I-I always, always thought…
I would end up with you eventually!

Always where I need to be

Bands I am obsessed with pt. 1 – The Kooks

I found the Kooks after I heard “Always Where I Need to Be” in the movie Post Grad. It was one of the main featured songs and I couldn’t get it out of my head for days. I started to hear the song in other things that I had seen a million times before and realized that I really liked that song and the band.

Here is the video for “Always Where I Need To Be” :

After listening to the Kooks two albums on repeat for months I have found a few of their other songs that I really love. Here are the videos for those songs, so you can check them out.

Here is “She Moves In Her Own Way”:

“Sway”:

And “Naive”:
