Music Monday: Go All the Way by Eric Carmen and the Raspberries

Due to stress at my real job as well as my awesome new responsibilities as the manager of London and Maddie's softball team, I've been neglecting my blog lately, but wanted to make it back with a bang for this week's Music Monday. I've told the girls we need a theme song for the Mendham Minors Mets, and thought briefly about "Who Let the Dogs Out?" like the New York Mets played at Shea Stadium for a while (still?) during the 7th inning stretch. Then we were driving home from practice one night and "Go All the Way" by Eric Carmen and the Raspberries came on the Blend (Sirius XM)...the girls loved it and with our team 5-0, it feels like a great team song to inspire the girls to go all the way to the league championship. Perhaps the other team parents will question the lyrics, but it's probably a step up from the usual "let you put your hands on me in my skin tight jeans, be your teenage dream tonight" coming from the girls in the back seat of our car or "I'm not here for your entertainment...it's just you and your hand tonight" that we sing while baking cookies here at Roxy's house.

Lucky for all of my loyal Roxiticus Desperate Housewives readers, I tracked down not one but two great versions of Eric Carmen and the Raspberries singing "Go All the Way." Here they are lip-syncing on the Mike Douglas show in 1974, when I was younger than London and Maddie are today:


And, more than 30 years later, here they are live in 2005 with Eric Carmen looking hotter at 50 or so than he did when he was first starting out.




I never knew how complete love could be
'Til she kissed me and said, baby

CHORUS
Please, go all the way
It feels so right
Being with you here, tonight
Please, go all the way
Just hold me close
Don't ever let me go

I coudn't say what I wanted to say
'Til she whispered I love you, so

Please, go all the way
It feels so right
Being with you here, tonight
Please, go all the way
Just hold me close
Don't ever let me go

Before her alone, I was cruel and mean
There was a hole in the place where my heart should have been

But now I'm changed, and I feel so strange
I come alive when she says all those things to me

And she says (come on)
Come on (come on)
(come on)
Come on (come on)
I need you (come on)
I love you (come on)
I need you (come on)
(come on)

CHORUS
Please, go all the way
It feels so right
Being with you here, tonight
Please, go all the way
Just hold me close
Don't ever let me go
