DOOM-WOP

Adolescent desire reaffirmed through emptiness and despair. Doo-wop ballads doomed to the depths.

Guided Missiles


Listen:

Originally recorded by The Cuff Links in 1957.


Guided missiles, aim at my heart

Down to destroy me, tear me apart

Guided missiles, none of them true

Now I know the enemy is you

Guided missiles, bound to explode

Destroying my heart is your goal

You have succeeded in making me blue

Now I know the enemy is you

You weakened my defenses

With your tender kisses

You knew when you loved me

I never could resist

Now you got me

I hope you'll win

Trusting you was my only sin

But the same guided missiles will get you in the end

You weakened my defenses

With your tender kisses

You knew when you loved me

I never could resist

Now you got me

I hope you'll win

Trusting you was my only sin

But the same guided missiles will get you in the end


The Wind


Listen:

Originally recorded by Nolan Strong and the Diablos in 1954.


When the cool summer breeze

Sends a chill down my spine

And I long for my love's sweet caress

I know she is gone but my love lingers on

In a dream that the wind brings to me

I remember as we kissed in the cool summer breeze

As she lay warm and tender in my arms

Darlin, when a star falls I wish for you;

And darlin', when I see lover's making love I long for you ...

And when the sun and the stars are shining above the mountains and the valleys,

Then darlin I look for you;

And even until the heavens above can no longer shine,

Even until then I shall still love you.

I know she is gone but my love it lingers on

In a dream that the wind brings to me.
