Ladies Night

Looks like a ladies' night tonight

One more time you've let me down and one more time I hide

I spent so long getting it right

I wanted so much to see you, I wanted to show them why

 

Fools, they thought I was alright

They couldn't see that I was dying inside

Fools, don't turn on the light

I can't bear to see their faces when they see me fall to pieces

 

Another lonely day to pass

Every second takes an hour, each one seems the last

And though it may not seem so bad

With the time that we are wasting is racing by so fast

 

Fools, they thought I was alright

They couldn't see that I was dying inside

Fools, don't turn on the light

I can't bear to see their faces when they see me fall to pieces

 

Another ladies' night tonight

One more time you've let me down and one more time I hide

Looks like I locked it up so tight

Even you didn't see me falling, you didn't watch me fight

 

Fool, you thought I was alright

You couldn't see that I was dying inside

Fool, don't turn on the light

I can't bear to see you stumble, when you see my strength has crumbled

Fool, you thought I was alright

You couldn't see that I was dying inside

Fools, please don't turn on the light

I can't bear to see your faces

When you see me fall to pieces

Ladies Night - Helen Jayne McKellar (feat. Judie Tzuke) (Review by A. Braun)

 

The intro to this song deceives you. Sounds like another Helen Jayne ballad you think but then it takes you away into something much more rock ballad-esque with a pure pop production sound. Ladies Night is a modern re-kindling of the Judie Tzuke song which first appeared on Tzuke’s debut 1979 album, Welcome to the Cruise. A bonus for all listeners is that Tzuke herself joins Helen and sings the third verse; it’s great to hear Judie’s characteristic voice again and took me back to that wonderful song, Stay with me 'til Dawn.   Helen delivers a great vocal from the echoey beginning and throughout with a nice blend of modern production accompaniments, and brings the song up to date, the lyrics of which will hit a chord with many a young lonely lady in today’s era.  A great taster prior to the release of Helen’s much anticipated EP where you can expect some more divergence from the Helen Jayne norm
