"Something's Gotten Hold Of My Heart" as written by Roger Frederick Cook and Roger John Reginald Greenaway....
Something's gotten hold of my heart
Keeping my soul and my senses apart
Something's gotten into my life
Cutting its way through my dreams like a knife
Turning me up, turning me down
Making me smile and making me frown

In a world that was small
I once lived in a time that was peace
With no trouble at all
But then you came my way
And a feeling unknown shook my heart
Made me want you to stay
All of my nights and all of my days

Yeah I gotta tell you now
Something's gotten hold of my hand
Dragging my soul to a beautiful land
Yeah something has invaded my nights
Painting my sleep with a color so bright
Changing the grey, changing the blue
Scarlet for me and scarlet for you

I've got to know if this is the real thing
I've got to know what's making my heart sing, woah yeah

You smile and I'm lost for a lifetime
Each minute spent with you is the right time
Every hour, yeah, every day, yeah

You touch me and my mind goes astray
And baby yeah

    General CommentGene Pitney and Marc Almond, together, dueting on a song, together - I never thought I'd see the day!

    General CommentI cannot believe that there's only one post on such a great song!?
    This lyrics are just ... I don't know how to express what I feel while listening to this song - it' so emotional!

    Ingenious!

    General CommentOh, and I have to add - I am almost positive that lyrics are not:
    "And a feeling I know
    Shook my heart"
    but:
    "And THE feeling UNKNOWN
    Shook my heart"

    Makes much more sense, right? ;)

    General CommentOne of the most passionate, stirring love songs ever!!! And a great remake. The meaning is clear, it's about somebody having their world turned upside down falling in love with a certain person.

    General CommentThis song takes me back to a certain period of my life... Happy, as you can guess:) It still hurts the fact that it's over, but, for some unknown reason, the song always keeps "turning me up" and "making me smile", as if I've just fallen in love!
