Music Monday: (How Do I Get You) Alone by Heart

Spend enough time in the car with London and Maddie and they'll get through all four Glee CDs (plus the Glee Christmas album). While the show is completely plot-free this season, the soundtrack continues to be fun, reminding me of a whole bunch of great Gleeriginals (the originals that the Glee cast has covered) that I've been compiling as a playlist on my iPod. Others may recognize "Alone" from the covers performed by Celine Dion (Taking Chances album) or Carrie Underwood (on American Idol), but I want to make sure my girls identify with the 1987 power ballad from Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart on their Bad Animals album.

Since I've started working out on our new Tuff Stuff home gym (weight machine), I've developed two different workout playlists...an aerobic workout requires 22.5 minutes of randy Katy Perry and Lady Gaga to take my mind off gasping for air for three miles on the eliptical trainer, but my weight training days require hard rock...Van Halen's "Finish What You Started," Led Zeppelin's "Dyermaker," Bon Jovi's "You Give Love a Bad Name, "Still Got This Thing for You" by Alannah Miles, and this one by Heart...the kind of soundtrack that takes me back to the high school weight room and, like the football coach, screams "gimme one more rep."





I hear the ticking of the clock
I'm lying here the room's pitch dark
I wonder where you are tonight
No answer on the telephone
And the night goes by so very slow
Oh I hope that it won't end though
Alone

Till now I always got by on my own
I never really cared until I met you
And now it chills me to the bone
How do I get you alone
How do I get you alone

You don't know how long I have wanted
to touch your lips and hold you tight, oh
You don't know how long I have waited
and I was going to tell you tonight

But the secret is still my own
and my love for you is still unknown
Alone

Till now I always got by on my own
I never really cared until I met you
And now it chills me to the bone
How do I get you alone
How do I get you alone

How do I get you alone
How do I get you alone

Alone, alone
