Smooth Operator's 80's Song Of The Week 1-15-2007
by Mark on 1/15/2007 (0)

Voices Carry was the first studio album by the American band 'Til Tuesday', released in 1985. 'Til Tuesday's debut single was the albums title track, which went to No. 8 on the Billboard singles chart and remains the bands best-known song. The title song was originally sung to a woman, but due to record company pressure for less controversial lyrics it was changed to be sung to a man. The "Voices Carry" video won the MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist and was played heavily on MTV. It depicts an oppressive boyfriend trying to convert lead singer Aimee Mann to his upper-class lifestyle; she finally lashes out at him during a concert at Carnegie Hall, standing up from her seat in the audience and belting the lyrics ("He said, shut up! He said, shut up! Oh God, can't you keep it down?...") as she removes her cap to reveal her signature spiky, rat-tailed hair. Ahhh..The often morose, rat-tailed 80's!

In the dark, I like to read his mind
but I'm frightened of the things I might find
Oh, there must be something he's thinking of
to tear him away
when I tell him that I'm falling in love
why does he say

Hush hush keep it down now voices carry
Hush hush keep it down now voices carry
Uh-uh

I try so hard not to get upset
because I know all the trouble I'll get
oh, he tells me tears are something to hide
and something to fear
and I try so hard to keep it inside
so no one can hear

Hush hush keep it down now voices carry
Hush hush keep it down now voices carry
Hush hush keep it down now voices carry
Uh-uh

He wants me
but only part of the time
He wants me
if he can keep me in line

Hush hush keep it down now voices carry
Hush hush keep it down now voices carry
Hush hush shut up now voices carry
Hush hush keep it down now voices carry
Oh hush hush, darling, she might overhear
Hush, hush - voices carry
He said shut up - he said shut up
Oh God can't you keep it down
Voices carry
Hush hush voices carry
I wish he would let me talk.
