You are an obsession (You are an obsession)
I cannot (I cannot sleep) sleep
I am a possession (I am your possession)
Unopened at your feet
There's no balance (There is no balance)
No equality (No equality)
Be still (Be still)
I will not (I will not) accept defeat (accept defeat)

I will have you
Yes, I will have you
I will find a way and I will have you
Like a butterfly
A wild butterfly
I will collect you and capture you

You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me?
You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me?

I feed you I drink you
My day and my night
I need you I need you
By sun or candlelight
You protest; you want to leave
Stay, oh, (there's no alternative) there's no alternative

Your face appears again
I see the beauty there
But I see danger
Stranger beware
Of circumstance in your naked dreams
Your affection is not what it seems

You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me?
You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me?

My fantasy (My fantasy) has turned to madness (has turned to madness)
And all my goodness (and all my goodness) has turned to badness (has turned to badness)
My need to possess you has consumed my soul
My life is trembling; I have no control

I will have you
Yes, I will have you
I will find a way and I will have you
Like a butterfly
A wild butterfly
I will collect you and capture you

You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me?
You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me?
You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me?
You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me?
You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me?
You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me?

You are an obsession

23 comments on it first play! Whoa baby! Love it when Bill throws us a curve ball! Explain to them that sometimes,for a short set or two, things can get loopy but overall, 95% of the time RP plays things no one else will play surprising us all sometimes(and the blending is superb)!!!!
You're right on all counts, and I feel much better today (and it seems that Bill do too) Ciao

"Animotion's Greatest Hits? It's in with the other 45 RPM singles."

Huh? I was tuned into RP for all of about 5 minutes before I made that post. Just what have I been "cranky" about?
Out in the big world: I'd give it a 6 or a 7 because it's actually better than about 80% of what I hear anywhere else. Here at RP: It's a 2, not because I dislike it, but because it gets in the way of a bunch of other good stuff I can only hear in RP world.

Agreed. I'm very annoyed. Was just about to show RP to a fellow worker sayin how good a station it is...

In some alternate 80s universe, they played this at Walter Mondale's inaugural ball. (shudder!)

Yes: to remind us about how lucky we are not to be in the '80s anymore. :biggrin:

This makes us appreciate real music. :wall:
So the music isn't bad enough to really hit your head against the wall. :frustrated:
This is not the reason I listen to RP!
The album's title certainly is an oxymoron.
Another reason why I wish in retrospect that I bagged my senior prom: 1985.
Yea, sure, why not. And how about some Ace Of Base, Nu Shooz. or Kajagoogoo. No wait........Scritti Politti.
Crummy song, but it brings back a memory of a girl I had a crush on at the time, and at least THAT is a good memory.
Heh! after Bill mentioned "80s cheesy flashback" I recognised this by the second drum hit! :dance:
Time to move on.
As Bart Simpson would say......."This is Craptacular !"
Tonight on Fashion Television...
This makes us appreciate real music. :wall:

How about: Because it's fun! Fun is good, yes?
Too Much Of That Brown Acid!! Flashback Time!! :high-five:
It may be "cheesy," but I count it among the 10 or so signature songs of the 80's. Right up there with FGTH's "Relax" and Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun." Great, big sound.
Oh yeah! Thanks for the high school flashback RP!!
Oh what a blast from the past.

No, no, no, no :stop:
Yeay! Cheesy 80's flashback time!

:roflol: I loved the grim tone in Bill's voice when he said "And now, it's cheesy 80s flashback time," as if he knew how much this would get slammed. :lol: Edit: A 3.6 rating! Woo!
