Wax – Right between the eyes

Wax fue una banda ochentera formada por Andrew Gold y Graham Gouldman (este último pertenecía previamente a otra banda británica llamada 10 cc).

En la corta carrera que estuvieron juntos (1985-1988), ganaron gran fama debido a este tema, “Right between the eyes” (número 1 en “Los 40 principales” el 1 de Agosto de 1986) y tuvieron algún que otro éxito como “Bridge to your heart“. La canción fue producida por Phil Thornalley.

Después de separarse, siguieron trabajando en algunos proyectos juntos, como una colección de rarezas publicada como “Wax Bikini” a través de sitio web de Andrew Gold.

En el vídeo, vemos como mientras los componentes cantan la canción, se suceden escenas divertidas de películas antiguas, como tartazos en la cara (directo entre los ojos, jeje)

Wax – Right between the eyes (letra)

wax-wxamegef.jpgTrue love for me was nothing but a mystery
Wax-American-EnglishJust something only captured in a dream
Oh, then suddenly
It was hitting me right between the eyes, ohoho

I wasn’t looking for a love explosion
But I must have been a target, my, oh my
‘Cause when I least expected it
Took a direct hit right between the eyes, aha

You, you shattered my resistance
Yes, it’s true, you battered my defence
What could I do?
I’m running from the heat between me and you

You hit me with a million volts
Nailed me with a lightning bolt
Oh baby, you knocked me cold
wax-wxshagef.jpg Your love attacked me right between the eyes

Now, nothing’s going to cool down my desire
‘Cause I’m jumping from the fat into the fire
The love bug has bitten me
You’re hittin’ me right between the eyes

And now, each time I think about you
I don’t know how, I ever did without you
Spin me round
And I’ll never get my feet back on the ground

wax-in-some-other-worldYou hit me with a million volts
Nailed me with a lightning bolt
Oh, baby, you knocked me cold (Knocked me cold)
Your love attacked me right between the eyes, yeah

Oh, the power of your love is much too strong
You turn me on

wax-wxshausf.jpgYou hit me with a million volts
Nailed me with a lightning bolt
Oh, baby, you knocked me cold (Knocked me cold)
Yeaheah, your love attacked me right between the eyes

And now, each time I think about you
I don’t know how, I ever did without you
Spin me round
And I’ll never get my feet back on the ground

You hit me with a million volts
Nailed me with a lightning bolt
Oh, baby, you knocked me cold (Knocked me cold)
Your love attacked me right between the eyes

Hit me with a million volts
Nailed me with a lightning bolt
Oh, baby, you knocked me cold (Knocked me cold)
Your love attacked me right between the eyes, take it
