Disrespectful To Dirt: Aug/Sept Number Ones

Alan Connor's Music Experience brings you yet more Quiz. Again, they are Number One hits from this week in history. And they've all been put through an auto-tranlsator, and back again, and come out like this.

30 August 2002

(1) His first effort on his own. The follow-up was even better.

I feel so dubious
While I take your hand and leads you to the floor of dance.
While the music dies, something in your eyes
Invites dealings with the silver-plated screen, all sad good-byes

This evening the music seems thus strong,
I wish perhaps that we could lose this crowd.
Which is better in a way
We would be wounded with the things we would like to say.

We could have been so good united,
We could have lived this dance for always,
But everyone has done the fact that it dances.

(2) At least tribute bands pay royalties.

I have a secret, I cannot maintain it,
A bisbiglio of an distant memory.
As soon as a dream or the looks appreciate,
Return me to the place, that would be something.

You have left a fire in my eyes,
That one lightens on the darker skies.
I am going over, I am going, I go.
I will find my sense therefore.

Return me still to my sweet life.
Find my love, my life of cake.
Demonstrate where I must go.
The Latin of small mile, it is where.

(3) When it was Number One the first time, it didn't have the "get down" lyric, so I haven't included that here.

To cry, to receive, speaking and to sleep and go, alive headstock.
The outward journey requires me to make it the best,
Precisely because it is an alive headstock.
Received an itinerant eye and that is why it carries out my heart -
To cry, to receive, sleeping and to go, alive headstock.

Take a sight of their hair, true.
If you disbelieve words, get a feeling.
I will close him in top of a trunk with a key.
So even with a big lump,
It can't fly far from me.
