George Wallace Tipped to this by Ted Gioia on Twitter, who wrote: "The Lazy Lies sound like a time machine just brought them here from 1965."
Exactly right, and uncannily so. This year's model for perfect little pop songs of a sort that never go out of style. Favorite track: Number One.

-- Looking for a new adventure? Looking for new sparks and thrills? Looking for a brighter future? Wanna get new dreams fulfilled? Everything can look so gloomy And you may feel you need a change But don't forget you're often moody And what seems black could be just bright grey When you leave someone for another guy This another guy will never be in peace Knowing what you did to the first guy You will probably do someday to him And things will eventually backfire to you You will fill your heart with passion You will fill your eyes with joy You'll get lots and lots of action But you will never fill one void You'll realise what looked so gloomy Was only gloomy in your eyes You thought you saw it clear and lucid But you were blinded by the light When you leave someone for another guy This another guy will never be in peace Knowing what you did to the first guy You will probably do someday to him And things will eventually backfire to you Things will eventually backfire to you To you To you When you leave someone for another guy This another guy will never be in peace Knowing what you did to the first guy You will probably do someday to him When you leave someone for another guy This another guy will never be in peace Knowing what you did to the first guy You will probably do someday to him --

-- Who's that Sally mentioned in the songs That all you people are singing all night long? Why can't she wait? Why is it too late? Where has she gone? Is she really that long? What's the story with this uncle John? Who's that Sally who can't dance no more? She's clearly saying something But she can't get off the floor Now that she's back in town Do you think that she will finally lay down? Did she go 'round the roses? Did she slow her old Mustang down? I hate her I hate her She doesn't deserve so much attention But maybe you do Who's that Sally that broke a Beatle's heart? Meet her by the river's edge And you'll travel South 'cross land Made of cinnamon Made of sugar and spice and all things nice But she won't be your girl If you ask her a thousand times Who's that Sally sneakin' through the alley She's always in an alley 'Cause nothing else rhymes with Sally But they still write her songs An awful lot of songs, I wonder why And nobody ever wrote me one Though my name is much easier to rhyme I hate her I hate her She doesn't deserve so much attention But maybe you do But maybe you do But maybe you do And this song's for you --

Number One 02:38
-- Holding a silver statue On a shiny plastic floor I can't help having the feeling That I really deserved more Now you've got it coming to you Now you've got it coming to you Now you've got it coming to you And I will take my time Cause it's hard to face That you are number one To face That you are number one Rest assured all my efforts Will be focused on next year's gold In one year you'll say goodbye To the trophy you now hold Cause it's hard to face That you are number one To face That you are number one Now you've got it coming to you Now you've got it coming to you Now you've got it coming to you And I will take my time Cause it's hard to face That you are number one To face That you are number one To face That you are number one To face That you are number one --

-- See the light come in through the curtains Hear the birds chirping in the sky Smell the grass growing on the mountains Let's wake up, let's step into the world Watch the sand flowing through your fingers Feel the breeze blowing through your hair Taste the freshness of fruit for breakfast So let's jump into this beautiful morning Bring your colours and paint the sky Let's jump into this beautiful morning We'll have time for other things tonight It was nice to look at the ceiling Of this cabin made of wood But I just can't stop this feeling Let's wake up, let's step into the world All the dark clouds that lay above us Disappeared during the night Now there's nothing that can stop us So let's jump into this beautiful morning Bring your colours and paint the sky Let's jump into this beautiful morning We'll make love tonight We'll have time for that when it gets dark We can have it all All at the same time We can have it all right now Watch the sand flowing through your fingers Feel the breeze blowing through your hair Taste the freshness of fruit for breakfast So let's jump into this beautiful morning Bring your colours and paint the sky Let's jump into this beautiful morning We'll make love outside Then we will repeat when it gets dark --

-- You may think I was born yesterday You may think that I'm blind I may look sweet and innocent But I don't believe your lies Don't even try to hide it Your secret's been unveiled Don't even dare deny it This harm cannot be healed So stop pretending you've been nice I just can't stand it Stop pretending we're alright It's time to mend it So stop pretending If I have really been so Important in your life Why do you keep on hurting me It's amazing how you still try The more you keep denying What we all know is true The more you will be implying That I mean nothing to you So stop pretending you've been nice I just can't stand it Stop pretending we're alright It's time to mend it So stop pretending It's funny how your life can change so much In a single minute But if you had been honest and told me the truth From the beginning You could have been forgiven The problem is believing You took me for a fool 'Cause we all make mistakes and You should have faced the truth So stop pretending you've been nice I just can't stand it Stop pretending we're alright It's time to mend it So stop pretending --

-- When I met you, baby I was shocked 'Who's that pretty lady? Can I join you, baby?' It took me courage to ask you 'Will you dance with me?' But you said yes and made me so happy When I met you, baby I was scared Boy, you looked so crazy! 'Can I join you baby?' I said yes because You offered to buy me a drink But while you were talking I wasn't listening And then we stood up Walked to the dancefloor At first I couldn't take my eyes off the door The band was rocking We started spinning But I got so dizzy and I fell to the floor When you passed out, baby I almost cried Boy, it was so scary! Baby, thanks for caring Soon I felt much better We went back to the bar Had a glass of water so I could drive my car And then we stood up Walked to the dancefloor At first I couldn't take my eyes off the door The band was rocking We started spinning But I got so dizzy and I fell to the floor When you passed out, baby I almost cried Boy, it was so scary! Baby, thanks for caring Soon I felt much better We went back to the bar Had a glass of water so I could drive my car Had a glass of water so I could drive my car But it didn't work so I couldn't get too far --

-- Red moon, orange sky Above the clouds an eagle flies It takes time to catch the sun But once you blink, the scene is gone And it's the great desire Great desire Great desire to see Earthquake, water breaks Above the surface of a lake It flies high towards the sun But once you blink, the scene is gone And it's the great desire Great desire Great desire to see Distractions make you miss some pretty things For some of them will happen in a fleeting glimpse Don't you dare to blink! And it's the great desire Great desire Great desire to see Distractions make you miss some pretty things For some of them will happen in a fleeting glimpse Don't you dare to blink! Thin moon, in a bright blue sky Moving slowly towards the light Biting into the sun But once you blink, the scene is gone And it's the great desire Great desire Great desire to see --

-- You took advantage of your position You clearly had too much ambition You were moving up like a rocket And put lots of cash in your pocket But now, they found out Right now, they'll shut your mouth Maybe you're losing your mind Maybe you're becoming dead inside? Better stop, straighten up and feel the city alive It's time to feel the city alive Nothing you have done's been proven You'd even claim that the Earth isn't moving Hurry up, the clock is ticking Maybe it's your own grave you're digging That's it, you've blown it That's it, you gotta quit Can't you see you're losing your mind Can't you see you're becoming dead inside? Better stop, straighten up and feel the city alive It's time to feel the city alive You're so lonely, so lonely, lonely, now You're so lonely, so lonely, lonely, now You're so lonely, so lonely, lonely, now You're so lonely, so lonely, lonely, now It's time to feel the city alive Better stop, straighten up and feel the city alive It's time to feel the city alive --

-- Love is a dangerous game A dangerous game for me I can't go anywhere Without you at my heels That's because you've been Acting strangely tonight Love is a dangerous game for me I can't go anywhere Without you at my heels I just can't understand Why you are spying me That's because you have been Avoiding me tonight Love is a dangerous game for me Love can be beautiful Love can be difficult Love is a long road to drive on You want me to be nice But you're turned on by bad guys What is it that you really want? Love is a therapy Love is the remedy Love is what keeps me going on You say you need some space But I can't have my own place What is it that you really want? I can't go anywhere Without you at my heels How can I surprise you If you're not letting me? Oh please don't lie to me I won't fall tonight Love is a dangerous game for me A dangerous game for me A dangerous game for me --

Into My Bed 03:14
-- Take it easy, do it simply, play it cool Any other way I won't want you Please don't hurry, let me worry, make me drool It's a long-term struggle between me and you Let's go for a walk Around the vastness of our town Let's find out if we've got much in common Before I let you into my bed Make it happen step by step and understand That I am not looking for a one-night stand Stroke it softly, like this... hand in hand Let me see you are no ordinary man Let's go for a drink outside In a sunny afternoon Mix it with a pleasant conversation Let me know what lies concealed So deep inside of you I need to know your utmost information Before I let you into my bed Take me to the movies And I'll take you to a show Let's go to a fancy Italian restaurant Let's recall the time we met 'Round twenty days ago We will laugh at how it felt so awkward And afterwards... Well... yeah, maybe then... I might let you into my bed --
