ATF: Hung Up

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.



You Keep Me Hanging On
The Supremes
Set me free
Why don't cha babe
Get out my life
Why don't cha babe
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on
You don't really need me
But you keep me hangin' on

Why do you keep a-coming around
Playing with my heart
Why don't you get out of my life
And let me make a new start
Let me get over you
The way you've gotten over me

Hey

Set me free
Why don't cha babe
Let me be
Why don't cha babe
Woo oh oh
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on
Woo oh oh
Now you don't really want me
You just keep me hangin' on

You say
Although we broke up
You still wanna be just friends
But how can we still be friends
When seeing you only breaks my heart again
And there ain't nothing I can do about it

Woo oh oh oh
Set me free
Why don't cha babe
Woo oh oh
Get out my life
Why don't cha babe
Woo oh oh
Set me free
Why don't cha babe
Get out my life
Why don't cha babe
You don’t really love me
But you keep me hanging on
Woo oh oh
You don’t really need me
But you keep me hanging on

You claim you still care for me
But your heart and soul needs to be free
Now that you've got your freedom
You wanna still hold on to me
You don't want me for yourself
So let me find somebody else
Hey hey
Why don't you be a man about it
And set me free
Woo oh oh
Now you don't care a thing about me
You're just using me
Woo oh oh
Go on
Get out
Get out of my life
And let me sleep at night
Woo oh oh
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on
Woo oh oh
You don’t really need me
So
Let me be
Set me free

Turn Me Loose
Loverboy
I was born to run
I was born to dream
The craziest boy you’ve ever seen
I gotta do it my way
Or no way at all
And I was here to please
I'm even on knees
Making love to whoever I please
I gotta do it my way
Or no way at all
And then you came around
Tried to tie me down
I was such a clown
You had to have it your way
Or no way at all
Well I've had all I can take
I can't take it no more
I'm gonna pack my bags and fly
My way
Or no way at all

So why don't you
Turn me loose
Turn me loose
Turn me loose
I gotta do it my way
Or no way at all
Why don't you
Turn me loose
Turn me loose
Turn me loose
I gotta do it my way
I wanna fly

I'm here to please
I'm even on my knees
Making love to whoever I please
I gotta do it my way
I gotta do it my way
And when you came around
You tried to tie me down
I was such a clown
You had to have it your way
Well I'm sayin' no way

So why don't you
Turn me loose
Turn me loose
Turn me loose
I gotta do it my way
Or no way at all
Why don't you
Turn me loose
Turn me loose
Turn me loose
I gotta do it my way
I gotta do it my way
Why don't you
Turn me loose
Turn me loose
Turn me loose
I gotta do it my way
I wanna fly
