#MusicMonday – I don’t sleep till I’ve had my fuel …

Whoop whoop!! It’s my first #MusicMonday post of 2022!! For those of you new to the blog, this is my weekly chance to share a track of my liking with you lovely people. This is the meme created by Drew Weldon, The Tattooed Book Geek.

To kick off this new year, I’ve picked a track that takes me back to 20 years (continuing on from last week’s choice). It captured my musical attention from the first time I heard it – needless to say it’s been played a serious number of times since … enjoy …

Addicted to Bass by Puretone

I got two pale hands up against the window pane
I’m shaking with the heat of my need again
It starts in my feet, reverbs up to my brain
There’s nothing I can do to reverse the gain
I’m looking down to the street below
There’s nothing in the way they move to show
They too, know what I know
They too hunger for the beast below
Listening to the radio I feel so out of place
There’s a certain something missing that the treble can’t erase
I know you can tell just by looking at my face
A word about my weakness
I’m totally addicted to bass
Wow woah ho

Wow woah ho

There’s nothing I can do to be cool
I don’t sleep till I’ve had my fuel
It frustrates if I am deprived
A hunger that grates from deep inside
I feel like I’m doing time
Imprisoned by dependence on a rhythm sublime
In my mind I must overcome the need to define
The solitary silence of a faceless crime

Standing by the stereo I’m feeling so alone
My back against a speaker and I’m moving on my own
Surrounded by so many and they’re staring at my face
They’re picking up my problem
Totally addicted to bass
Wow woah ho

Your bassline is shooting up my spine
Wow woah ho
Your bassline has got me feeling fine
It’s filling up my mind

Sunrise at my window, I look down on the street
People I see everywhere are tapping their feet
Suddenly I realise in a look that I was wrong
Everybody’s groovin’ to their own song
Down at the scene below
There’s something in the way they move to show
They too, know what I know
They too hunger for the beast below

Rhythm’s running over me to wash away my fears
The backbeat of humanity sweetens my tears
There’s something that’s connected us down throughout the years
No need to feel so lonely, everyone’s addicted to bass
Wow woah ho
Everyone’s addicted to bass
Wow woah ho
Your bassline is shooting up my spine
Your bassline
Your bassline has got me feeling fine
It’s filling up my mind
Your bassline is shooting up my spine
Your bassline
Your bassline has got me feeling fine
It’s filling up my mind…
