Anything you asked me to



They're all getting older, dears...

Pete Burns is 55 years old today! Admittedly, you'd never tell as there's not much left of his face from when he was born.

I have (of course) paid tribute to the weirdest man in pop here before, so let us instead revel in one of his earlier works with Dead or Alive - I'd Do Anything. This brings back happy memories...



I would do just about anything
I would do just about anything

Well I used to have what I would call
A very limited vocabulary
And the only two words
I could wrap my tongue around
Were I and me
But now I feel so clever
That you would swear I ate a dictionary
And the new word that I've added
Brings up my words to three
What am I gonna do
Word number three is you

I would do anything, anything
I would do anything, anything
Anything to be with you
Anything you asked me to
I would do anything, anything
Just about anything, anything
Anything to be with you
Anything you asked me to

Oh the meaning of my feelings
It is not written in no dictionary
And I've tried to find the meaning
In a phrase book or two
Well there are some things you can only say
If you have a healthy body
So come on, baby, let's talk together
For a day or two
You know what I will do
For a day or two
You know what I will do
You know what I need from you

I would do anything, anything
I would do anything, anything
Anything to be with you
Anything you asked me to
I would do anything, anything
Just about anything, anything
Anything to be with you
Anything you asked me to

Won't you come back, won't you run back
Won't come back and play with me?
Won't you run back, won't you run back
Won't you run back and stay with me?

  2. I have a soft spot for Dead Or Alive, although I never bought any of their albums (just a Greatest Hits and a DVD with the music videos). 55? Scary!

    Let's all try NOT to look at him when we reach that age.

    1. I can assure you, as I drift in that direction, that I will never get the "Pete Burns look", no matter how old I am! Jx
