LET'S KARAOKE 3 : BELINDA CARLISLE - MAD ABOUT YOU

This one came one in 1986 during my sophomore year in college (yes, you should have figured out my age by now). It was Belinda Carlisle's first single (after her departure from The Go-Go's) which propelled her way to the top back in the 80s. The song has a Go-Go's feeling and sound to it since it was considered to be on the group's next album (which was never recorded). An uptempo song which spells summer and everything fun, it is definitely for the young ones (and also not so young ones) who are in love.

I'm mad about you
You're mad about me babe
Couple of fools run wild aren't we
Pushing the day into the night time
Somewhere between the two
We start to see

Mad about you (Mad about you)
Lost in your eyes (Reason aside)
Mad about love (Mad about you)
You and I

Something 'bout you
Right here beside me
Touches the touched part of me like I can't believe
Pushing the night into the daytime
Watching the sky's first light
While the city sleeps

Mad about you (Mad about you)
Lost in your eyes (Reason aside)
Mad about love (Mad about you)
You and I

Mad about you (Mad about you)
Lost in your eyes (Reason aside)
Mad about love (Mad about you)
You and I

I'm mad about you
You're mad about me babe
Couple of fools run wild aren't we

Mad about you (Mad about you)
Lost in your eyes (Reason aside)
Mad about love (Mad about you)
You and I
