ATF: Unrequited

This series will include as many of my all-time favorite (ATF) tunes as I can get my grubby little hands on (so to speak).  Now, each one included in each edition will have some connection with the other—albeit only as a figment of my imagination, but they will not be numbered.  For I just cannot bring myself to rate some higher than others.  So, this will not be a countdown, but if you are enjoying them as much as I do, it won’t matter.  Besides, with no countdown, this could go on forever and ever!  Oh, and despite the fact that there is absolutely no way your musical tastes could be as exquisite as mine, I welcome any suggestions you might dare to make.  For I am, after all, quite magnanimous by nature.



Liar
Three Dog Night
I won't ever leave
You want me to stay
Nothing you can do
That could turn me away
Hanging on anyway
Believing the things you say
Being a fool
You've taken my life
So take my soul
That's what you said
And I believed it all
I want to be with you
As long as you want me to
But don't move away

Ain't that what you said
Ain't that what you said
Ain't that what you said
Liar
Liar
Liar

We won’t see no light
We won’t see no day
Did I ever leave
But you want me to stay
You can believe in me
I won't be leaving
I won't let you go

Ain't that what you said
Ain't that what you said
Ain't that what you said
Liar
Liar
Liar
Liar
Liar
Liar

You've taken my life
So take my soul
That's what you said
But who are we to know
I want to be with you
As long as you want me to
But don't move away

Ain't that what you said
Ain't that what you said
Ain't that what you said
Liar
Liar
Liar
Liar
Liar
Liar

Rolling the Deep
Adele
There's a fire
Starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch
And it's bringing me out the dark
Finally
I can see you crystal clear
Go ahead and sell me out
And I'll lay your ship bare
See how I'll leave
With every piece of you
Don't underestimate
The things that I will do
There's a fire
Starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch
And it's bringing me out the dark

The scars of your love
Remind me of us
They keep me thinking
That we almost had it all
The scars of your love
They leave me breathless
I can't help feeling
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside
Of your hand
And you played it
To the beat

Baby
I have no story to be told
But I've heard one of you
And I'm gonna make your head burn
Think of me
In the depths of your despair
Making a home down there
As mine sure won't be shared

The scars of your love
Remind you of us
They keep me thinking
That we almost had it all
The scars of your love
They leave me breathless
I can't help feeling
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside
Of your hand
And you played it
To the beat
Could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside
Of your hand
But you played it
With a beating

Throw your soul through
Every open door
Count your blessings
To find what you look for
Turn my sorrow
Into treasured gold
You pay me back in kind
And reap just what you sow

Now I'm gonna wish you
Bever had met me
We could have had it all
Tears are gonna fall
Rolling in the deep
We could have had it all
Now I'm gonna wish you
Never had met me
It all
It all
It all
It all
Tears are gonna fall
Rolling in the deep
Now I'm gonna wish you
Never had met me
We could have had it all
Tears are gonna fall
Rolling in the deep
Rolling in the deep
Now I'm gonna wish you
Never had met me
You had my heart and soul
Tears are gonna fall
Rolling in the deep)
And you played it
To the beat
Now I'm gonna wish you
Never had met me
Could have had it all
Tears are gonna fall
Rolling in the deep
Rolling in the deep
Now I'm gonna wish you
Never had met me
You had my heart and soul inside
Of your hand
Tears are gonna fall
Rolling in the deep
But you played it
You played it
Tou played it
To the beat

  1. Didn't know this track from Three dog Night - 'Mama Told Me Not To Come' was a hit over here and is often played. I see they are still performing - good for them. Love most of Adele's stuff, including this one; she's a wonderful songwriter and singer - pity she can't temper her unfortunately coarse vocabulary when on stage!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Mike!!! Mama Told Me Not To Come was one of the two for Regrettable Situations in the series on New Year's Day 2015. This is the second of the two Adele songs in this series. Back during my hard-drinking days, I would have been impressed with her blatant vulgarity. Sigh.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Stephen!!! If you have ever caught an interview with her, you know that she is most definitely not so sweet.
