What my heart yearns for now



It's time for another little trip in the TARDIS...

Let's head back thirty years to this week in 1985, when there was not only a Prince (with his 1999/Little Red Corvette double-A-side) and a Queen (Madge, with Like A Virgin) in the charts, but also - King!

Proud mullet-wearers and the originators of that all-too-brief fashion for painted Doc Martins, here's their big hit - a staple of retro radio stations everywhere - Love & Pride:



That's what my heart yearns for now - love and pride.
That's what my heart yearns for now - love and pride.

Start your journey early or maybe later
get your boots on

Look for rainbows
it's cloudy

Take your hairdryer
blow them all away.

In you I've found a story I want to keep hearing.
In you I see all colours
not just black or white.
In you I find a reason and hope for all dreamers

You are my fill
you're my supply of love and pride.
That's what my heart yearns for now - love and pride. . . .

Knowing
sensing
seeing
eating
sleeping
that's just being.
Touching
testing
loving
wanting and taking

more love and more pride.
In you I've found a story I want to keep hearing...

I'm taking it round the world - some love and pride.
That's what my heart yearns for now - love and pride...
That's what my heart yearns for now - love and pride!

    1. Sadly, the rest of their repertoire (brief as it was) is forgotten in the annals of time. Jx
