Stars: “Hold On When You Get Love and Let Go When You Give It” (2012)

It’s 80’s style synth pop with a message from Canada’s Stars.

There’s been a lot of talk of love
But that don’t amount to nothing
You can evoke the stars above
But that doesn’t make it something

And the only way to last
And the only way to live it
Is to hold on when you get love
And let go when you give it… give it

It’s a pretty melody
It might help you through the night time
But it doesn’t make it easy
To leave the party at the right time

If I’m frightened, if I’m high
It’s my weakness please forgive it
At least I hold on when I get love
And I let go when I give it… give it… give it

What do I do when I get lonely?
What do I do?
Hold on when you get love
What do I do when I get lonely?
What do I do?
Hold on when you get love
What do I do when I get lonely?
What do I do?
And you let go when you give it
What do I do?

The world won’t listen to this song
And the radio won’t play it
But if you like it sing along
Sing cause you don’t know how to say it

Take the weakest thing in you
And then beat the bastards with it
And always hold on when you get love
So you can let go when you give it

Take the weakest thing in you
And then beat the bastards with it
And always hold on when you get love
So you can let go when you give it… give it… give it

What do I do when I get lonely?
What do I do?
Hold on when you get love
What do I do when I get lonely?
What do I do?
And you let go when you give it
What do I do when I get lonely?
What do I do?
Hold on when you get love
What do I do?

I know it’s true, please don’t think I do
Nothing that you say or do will make you love me
Forget the song, things will go on
I keep seeing you from the dark with you above me

I know it’s true, please don’t think I do
Nothing that you say or do will make you love me
Forget the song, things will go on
I keep seeing you from the dark with you above me

Take the weakest thing in you
And then beat the bastards with it
And always hold on when you get love
So you can let go when you give it
Give it… give it… give it… give it… give it… give it

Andy Burrows: “Stars in the Sky” (2012)

As I said about Andy Burrows last December:

This guy actually gets played on English pop radio stations. He’ll probably never get played on American pop radio stations. Yes, we won the Revolutionary War–but at what cost?
