Route 66” by Depeche Mode

Well if you ever plan to motor west
Travel my way
Take the highway that’s the best
Get your kicks on Route 66
Well it winds from Chicago to LA
More than two thousand miles
All the way
Get your kicks on Route 66

Well it goes to St. Louis
Down to Missouri
Oklahoma City looks oh so pretty
You’ll see Amarillo
Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona
Don’t forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino

If you get hip to this kind of trip
And go take that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66

Well it goes to St. Louis
Down to Missouri
Oklahoma City looks oh so pretty
You’ll see Amarillo
Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona
Don’t forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino

If you get hip to this kind of trip
And go take that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66

 

 

 

Everywhere That I’m Not” by Translator

I thought I saw you, out on the avenue
But I guess it was just someone
Who looked a lot like, I remember you do
‘Cause I thought I heard your voice

In a bar making a choice
But, no, it was just someone
Who sounded a lot like I remember you do

‘Cause that’s impossible, that’s im
That’s impossible, that’s imposs
That’s impossible, that’s impossible

[Chorus]
‘Cause you’re in New York but I’m not
You’re in Tokyo but I’m not
You’re in Nova Scotia but I’m not

Yeah, you’re everywhere that I’m not
Yeah, you’re everywhere that I’m not
I’m not, I’m not, I’m not

I thought I felt your touch
In my car, on my clutch
But I guess it was just someone
Who felt a lot like I remember you do

‘Cause that’s impossible, that’s im
That’s impossible, that’s imposs
That’s impossible, that’s impossible

[Chorus]

I thought I saw you out on the avenue
But I guess it was just someone
Who looked a lot like I remember you do

I thought I felt your touch
In my car, but no such luck
No, I guess it was just someone
Who felt a lot like I remember you do

‘Cause that’s impossible, that’s im
That’s impossible, that’s imposs
That’s impossible, that’s impossible

[Chorus]

Yeah, you’re everywhere that I’m not
Yeah, you’re everywhere that I’m not
Yeah, you’re everywhere that I’m not
(Oh, come on, oh, yeah, yeah)
You’re everywhere that I’m not
You’re everywhere that I’m not
You’re everywhere that I’m not
Yeah, you’re everywhere that I’m not

 

 

 

“The Heart Of Rock & Roll” by Huey Lewis & The News

New York, New York, is everything they say
And no place that I’d rather be
Where else can you do a half a million things
All at a quarter to three

When they play their music, ooh that modern music
They like it with a lot of style
But it’s still that same old back beat rhythm
That really really drives ’em wild

[Chorus]
They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I’ve seen I believe ’em
Now the old boy may be barely breathing
But the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beating

LA, Hollywood, and the Sunset Strip
Is something everyone should see
Neon lights and the pretty pretty girls
All dressed so scantily

When they play their music, that hard rock music
They like it with a lot of flash
But it’s still that same old back beat rhythm
That really kicks ’em in the….

[Chorus]

DC, San Antone and the Liberty Town, Boston and Baton Rouge
Tulsa, Austin, Oklahoma City, Seattle, San Francisco, too
Everywhere there’s music, real live music, bands with a million styles
But it’s still that some old rock and roll music
that really really drives ’em wild

[Chorus]

In Cleveland
Detroit!!
Huh, heart of rock and roll

 

 

 

“Dancing in the Street” by Martha and the Vandellas

I’m comin’ out all around the world
Searchin’ for a brand new beat
Summer’s here and the time is right
For dancin’ in the street
For dancin’ in Chicago
Down to New Orleans
In New York City
All we need is music, sweet music

[Chorus]
There’ll be music everywhere
There’ll be a-swingin’ an’ swayin’
And records playin’
And dancin’ in the street
It doesn’t matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
So come on, every guy and grab a girl
Everywhere around the world

Oh there’ll be dancin’
Dancin’ in the street
This is an invitation
Across the nation

A chance for folks to meet
There’ll be laughter, singin’
And music swingin’
And dancin’ in the street

Philadelphia, P.A.
Across to Washington DC
Can’t forget the Music City
All we need is music, sweet music

[Chorus]

There’ll be dancin’, dancin’ in the street
This is an invitation
Across the nation
A chance for folks to meet
There’ll be laughter singin’ and music swingin’
And dancin’ in the street

 

 

 

“All Over The World” by E.L.O. (Electric Light Orchestra)

Everybody all around the world, gotta tell you what I just heard
There’s gonna be a party all over the world
I got a message on the radio, but where it came from I don’t really know
And I heard these voices calling all over the world

[Chorus:]
All over the world, everybody got the word
Everybody everywhere is gonna feel tonight
Everybody walkin’ down the street, everybody movin’ to the beat
They’re gonna get hot down in the U.S.A. (New York, Detroit, L.A.)
We’re gonna take a trip across the sea, everybody come along with me
We’re gonna hit the night down in gay Pareee[chorus]

[Instrumental break]

London, Hamburg, Paris, Rome, Rio, Hong Kong, Tokyo
L.A., New York, Amsterdam, Monte Carlo, Shard End and

Everybody all around the world, gotta tell you what I just heard
Everybody walkin’ down the street, I know a place where we all can meet
Everybody gonna have a good time, everybody will shine till the daylight

[chorus]
All over the world, everybody got the word [repeats 3x]

 

 

 

 

Kokomo” by The Beach Boys

Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take ya
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego,
baby why don’t we go,
Jamaica

Off the Florida Keys
there’s a place called Kokomo
That’s where you wanna go
to get away from it all
Bodies in the sand,
tropical drink melting in your hand
We’ll be falling in love
to the rhythm of a steel drum band
Down in Kokomo

[Chorus:]
Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take you to
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego,
baby why don’t we go
Ooh I wanna take you down to Kokomo,
we’ll get there fast
and then we’ll take it slow
That’s where we wanna go,
way down in Kokomo.

Martinique, that Monserrat mystique…

We’ll put out to sea
and we’ll perfect our chemistry
By and by we’ll defy
a little bit of gravity
Afternoon delight,
cocktails and moonlit nights
That dreamy look in your eye,
give me a tropical contact high
Way down in Kokomo

[Chorus]

Port au Prince, I wanna catch a glimpse…

Everybody knows a little place like Kokomo
Now if you wanna go to get away from it all
Go down to Kokomo

[Chorus]
