Josie's On a Vacation Far Away

The Outfield
"Your Love"
Listen | Buy

NOTES: Ah, mid-80s pop. I just like screaming the first line of this song whenever I hear it come across the airwaves.

Josie's on a vacation far away
Come around and talk it over
So many things that I want to say
You know I like my girls a little bit older

I just wanna use your love tonight
I don't wanna lose your love tonight

I ain't got many friends left to talk to
No one's around when I'm in trouble
You know I'd do anything for you
Stay the night, but keep it undercover

I just wanna use your love tonight
I don't wanna lose your love tonight

Try to stop my hands from shakin'
'Cause somethin' in my mind's not makin' sense
It's been awhile since we've been all alone
I can't hide the way I'm feelin'

As you're leaving please would you close the door
And don't forget what I told you
Just 'cause you're right that don't mean I'm wrong
Another shoulder to cry upon

I just wanna use your love tonight
I don't wanna lose your love tonight

It's funny to really look at the lyrics of a song you first listened to as a child. I'm realizing that I still sing a few of them very incorrectly.

I ain't got many friends left to talk to
The waves are rough and I'm in trouble

AND

Just 'cause you like it, don't mean I'm not
Another shoulder to cry upon

Hmm...you mean I'm wrong??? All these years? My childhood is all messed up now.

My nickname to some people I work with (and mostly ones that I did work with) is Josey...so named after "The Outlaw Josey Wales". Interesting, eh?

Took a moment to remember that song.

I've been streaming '80s new wave/alternative here at work over the last day or so. Everything from Elvis Costello to the Miami Sound Machine. I trudge through the sugary pop crap to find a few gems intermingled.

No Outfield yet, though.

Interesting note. I saw Billy Corgan last night on whatever Letterman's show is, and it immediately reminded me of early '80s new wave, a la Flock of Seagulls. Read an article on Billy, seems that's the tack he's taken, as his music is "based more on New Wave synthesizers than on guitar heroics." It even looked '80s new wave.

JOHN, it's like you're psych(ot)ic or something. I read an article today about how Billy Corgan is now saying he is going to reform the Smashing Pumpkins. I'm going to post "Zero" later in celebration.

Kinda bummed that Karl Mueller died, though.

"I just like screaming the first line of this song whenever I hear it come across the airwaves".

Man, that was just perfect!

JOSIES ON A VACATION FAR AWAY!!!

Why oh why do I love this song?

The opening line Josie's on a vacation far away. Why else?

As a child of the 70's, 80's and 90's this is

one of the all time, all time hits.

i'm not from the 80's but the 90's and heard this song though and i really like it

Posted by: k-swisha at January 20, 2007 03:46 PM

Hell of a song, would love to cover this in a band i'm getting together.

Good song. Reminds me of one of my former friends from school who was dating this girl that I liked and he didn't treat her very well.

Hi this is a very informative site! It's nice on the whole but it seems that the navigation system is a little bit confusing.
