Love Machine

Wham! Fantastic album (1983)

Since I can remember, I loved Wham! That love continued after the group split and I can safely say that I have all George Michael’s albums, in some form or another; cassette, 45, vinyl or CD. So today’s post comes from three places.

The first is from hearing Faith on the radio early last week. That song always, always puts me in a good mood. And brings me back to his latest concert in 2009, where that was his final song of the night. The man still has it!

Let’s stop there and just for the record state that I could care less what the man does in his spare time, or where he does it. When he “shakes his ass” everyone notices. And I mean everyone. And that’s good enough for me!

So with that aside, my husband and I were out shopping one night, and the hardware store was playing some old tunes, and Everything She Wants was on as we were leaving. In the car, my husband was humming it and I remembered back to a time when I used to play the Make it Big cassette in my basement and dance around when I was kid.

Finally, yesterday afternoon I took my Little Bird to see Monster’s Universityand they showed a preview for Pixar’s upcoming Planes. In the preview one of the planes singing Love Machine!

And so it was decided by the music gods that Wham! is today’s Music Monday choice. And since we’ll probably see an animated plane sing it very shortly, I’ve gone with Love Machine, from the Fantastic album (1983).

Enjoy, and happy Monday!

Love Machine

By: Wham!

I’m just a love machine
And I won’t work for nobody but you,
I’m just a love machine,
A huggin’, kissin’ fiend.
I think it’s high time you knew,
Whenever I think of you,
My mind blows a fuse.
When I look in you eyes,
My meter starts to rise, and I become confused.
My voltage regulator cools,
When I’m sitting next to you,
Electricity starts to flow,
And my indicator starts to glow – wooo
I’m just a love machine
And I won’t work for nobody but you,
I’m just a love machine,
A huggin’, kissin’ fiend.
Na, na na na na, na na na na, woo-woo-wooo
Na, na na na na, na na na na, na naaah
I’m just a love machine
And I won’t work for nobody but you,
I’m just a love machine,
A huggin’, kissin’ fiend.
I’m gentle as a lamb,
I’m not that hard to program,
There’s no way that you can lose,
My chassis fits like a glove,
I’ve got a button for love,
That you have got-to-use.
If you look into my file,
I am sure you can find out how,
To turn me on just set my dial,
And let me love you for a little while – ooh
I’m just a love machine
And I won’t work for nobody but you,
I’m just a love machine,
A huggin’, kissin’ fiend.
Na, na na na na, na na na na, woo-woo-wooo
Na, na na na na, na na na na, na naaah
I’m just a love machine,
And I won’t work for nobody but you.
I’m just a love machine,
A huggin’, kissin’ fiend.
