Day 13: A song that is a guilty pleasure

A guilty pleasure. I like that expression. It is a sort of contradiction in terms. It has the forbidden fruit (though as most of you will know I'm not biblical at all) in it. A song I like, but shouldn't.

Not a difficult choice. Even in the seventies, as a little boy, I soon decided that disco as a music genre was completely useless. The teenage me, 80's child, only drove away further from the decade that produced so much crap.

One song escaped my wrath though. I must have been 8 or 9 when I first heard it. It was a disco adaption of an old song, though I didn't know that until much later. It is still one of the few songs where I prefer the cover over the original. The only disco song I still enjoy listening to, my guilty pleasure.

Amii Stewart - Knock on wood.



Btw, does anybody know why there are two i's in Amii?

Amii Stewart - Knock on wood

I don't want to lose you
This good thing
That I got
'Cause if I do
I will surely,
surely lose a lot
'Cause your love is better
Than any love I know
It's like thunder and lightning
The way you love me is frightening
You better knock, knock on wood, baby
I'm not superstitious about ya
But I can't take no chance
You got me spinnin', baby
You know I'm in a trance
'Cause your love is better
Than any love I know
It's like thunder, lightning
The way you love me is frightenin'
You better knock, knock, knock on wood, baby
Think I better knock, knock, knock on wood
Think I better knock, knock, knock on wood
Think I better knock, knock, knock on wood
Think I better knock, knock, knock on wood
Think I better knock
It's no secret about it
'Cause with his lovin' touch
He sees to it
That I get enough
With his touch all over
You know it means so much
It's like thunder and lightnin'
The way you love me is frightenin'
You better knock, knock on wood, baby
Think I better knock, knock, knock on wood
Think I better knock, knock, knock on wood
Think I better knock, knock, knock on wood
Think I better knock, knock, knock on wood
