#MusicMonday – Rules are made to be broken…

Whooop whooop!! It’s time for #MusicMonday, my weekly chance to share a track of my liking with you lovely people, all under the watchful eye of Drew Weldon, The Tattooed Book Geek.

Today’s choice is a trip back to the early 90s. This artist has had a stonking career and is still performing now. This track I loved as a teenager and is been given a new life as it’s been sampled in a current dance track so I’ve been hearing it a lot recently… enjoy…

Live Your Life Be Free by Belinda Carlisle

Live your life be free
Live your life be free
Open up your mind and you will see
You should be with me, babe
You should be with me


I see you walking with her
I see you all around
But you don’t seem very happy now
You seem very down
I know you feel an obligation
To her emotional state of mind
But this is the time of your life baby

And you should be having a good time
And if you want me I’ll be there
To run my fingers through your hair
If you need me it’s alright

Come on over baby, and see me tonight (you’ve got to)
Live your life be free
Live your life be free
Open up your mind and you will see
You should be with me
You know that I’ll be waiting

You know my heart is true
I will be your everything
And give everything to you
So is you want me baby, I’m yours

You don’t have to knock, kick down my doors
Rules are made to be broken every day
You got one life to live, so hey (why don’t you)
Live your life be free
Live your life be free

Open up your heart and you will see
You should be with me, baby
You should be with me
Live your life be free
Live your life be free
And when you free you mind
You will leave your past behind

Live your life be free
Live your life be free
Open up your eyes and you will see
You should be with me, baby
You should be with me
Live your life be free
Live your life be free
