#MusicMonday – Bein’ good isn’t always easy…

It’s Monday and it’s 4pm so it’s time for my #MusicMonday post – this is my opportunity to share a track of my liking with you lovely people, all under the watch of the enigmatic Drew Weldon, The Tattooed Book Geek.

Now today’s pick for #SoundtrackSeptember comes from one helluva a film and possibly one of my favourite soundtracks. When I first bought this on CD, it was on repeat and I remember this particular track being played every Tuesday (and most Wednesdays) at Morecambe’s Carleton nightclub for student night… enjoy…

Son of A Preacher Man by Dusty Springfield

Billy-Ray was a preacher’s son
And when his daddy would visit he’d come along
When they gathered round and started talkin’
That’s when Billy would take me walkin’
A-through the backyard we’d go walkin’
Then he’d look into my eyes
Lord knows to my surprise

The only one who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man.
The only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man.
Yes he was, he was
Ooh, yes he was.

Being good isn’t always easy
No matter how hard I try.
When he started sweet-talkin’ to me
He’d come and tell me everything is all right
He’d kiss and tell me everything is all right.
Can I get away again tonight?

The only one who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man.
The only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man.
Yes he was, he was
(Ooh) Lord knows he was
(Yes he was.)

How well I remember
The look that was in his eyes.
Stealin’ kisses from me on the sly
Takin’ time to make time
Tellin’ me that he’s all mine
Learnin’ from each other’s knowing

Lookin’ to see how much we’re growin’
And the only one who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man.
The only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man.
Yes he was, he was

Ooh, yes he was.
The only one who could ever reach me
He was the sweet-talking son of a preacher man.
The only one who could ever teach me
I guess it was the son of a preacher man.
The only one who could ever move me
Sweet talking son of the preacher man
The only one who could ever move me
Was the son of the preacher man
