"GHOST IN YOU"


AHOOO!! It's my "GHOST IN YOU" Blogpost!!

DARK Characters like ASWANG. TIKBALANG, MANANANGGAL, DWENDE and the like have been a part of MYTH and REALITY in the daily lives of every FILIPINOS. I must agree that PINOYS are very superstitious!! HALLOWEEN is near and I guess everyone is preparing for it. Though CHRISTMAS is much felt right now here in the PHILIPPINES in every corner yet HALLOWEEN would come first. Sorry we will not be talking about that but my blogpost for today is about "GHOST IN YOU" and anything related to it and as usual I'm doing it the "Dr. Stirring Rhod" way. He He He!! I included some Music Videos to spice up my post.

The guys are at it again organizing a POP DANCE, ALL 80s NEW WAVE party come this OCTOBER 24, 2008 here in MANILA specifically PASIG CITY with LIVE VINYL MIXING by CARDINAL AUDIO, THE CRATE CRUSADERS, 33 1/3 and RSL. COOL POSTER AD Guys!!!

So what's the "GHOST IN YOU" thing? Well for avid PINOY NEW WAVERS this is the title of the Classic PSYCHEDELIC FURS song which became a hit back in 1984. The song was written by Richard Butler lead singer of the band and his brother Tim Butler which was later released in their album "MIRROR MOVES" which was one of the early Vinyl Records I bought during those times. It was released as the second single from the album next to "HEAVEN" and charted both in the US and UK. Of course this song also made it very big here in MANILA especially the Music Video which would be seen in Video Shows in regular TV Programming.

It was also remake by COUNTING CROWS for the Alicia Silverstone movie "CLUELESS" back in 1995. Mark McgGrat of SUGAR RAY has also his version in the 2004 Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymoore movie "50 FIRST DATES".

GHOST IN YOU
Lyrics


A man in my shoes runs a light and

All the papers lied tonight

But falling over you

Is the news of the day

Angels fall like rain
And love (love, love)
Is all of heaven away


Inside you
The time moves

And she don't fade

The ghost in you

She don't fade

Inside you

The time moves

And she don't fade


A race is on, I'm on your side and

Here in you my engines die
I'm
In a mood for you
Or running away

Stars come down in you

And love (love, love)

You can't give it away


Inside you

The time moves

And she don't fade

The ghost in you

She don't fade

Inside you

The time moves

And she don't fade


Don't you go
It makes no sense when

All your talk and supermen just

Take away the time

And get in the way

Ain't it just like rain?

And love (love, love)

Is only heaven away


Inside you

The time moves
And she don't fade

The ghost in you

She don't fade


Inside you
The time moves

And she don't fade

The ghost in you

She don't fade


Inside you
The time moves
And she don't fade
The ghost in you

She don't fade


COUNTING CROWS LIVE VERSION!!

ROBYN HITCHCOCK 1989 Unplugged
TOWER RECORDS PERFORMANCE!!

Wheeew!! So before Counting Crows did an unplugged version there was this ROBYN HITCHCOCK style. WOW!! Thanks Doughmash for this great clip


BTW, I still remember XB LEGENDARY DJ Manolet Rodrigo aka. "The Ghost" playing this song back then and his statement on his radio broadcast which I was able to record on cassette tape. It goes like this as I quote THE GHOST saying "102 MUSIC, that was music from PSYCHEDELIC FURS with the "GHOST IN YOU".... Good Evening this is THE GHOST IN YOU on your radio on WXB102" WHEEEW!! Memories indeed!!


I just wanna add to this post is the classic 1990 Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore "GHOST" movie which was a MAJOR HIT here in MANILA. YUP!! PINOYS went gaga of this classic romantic fantasy film that also starred Whoopi Goldberg who was really funny. So how did this film became memorable for PINOYS? I have a friend who works on the Movie Industry and "GHOST" went on to earn a lot here in the Philippines. And mind you "GHOST" was shown here in movie houses with a record breaking 10 straight months. WHEEW!! WOW!! Ten months and it was still shown in Philippine Theaters? That's Incredible!! Righteous Brothers' Unchained Melody also became a massive hit on Philippine Radio back then. That famous lyrics "Oh, my love, my darling,I've hungered for your touch a long, lonely time. " was all around. He He He!! One memorable movie indeed!!

SO WHO YOU GONNA CALL?
GHOSTBUSTERS!!
