"Heartbeat" as written by Svein Berge, Torbjorn Brundtland and Anne Lilia Berge Strand....
There was a time
Everybody was around and I was dancing with you
We all went down to the party Friday night
And had a drink there or two
Oh what a heat
I feel love and heart beat
It's electricity
Majestic sound, round and round and round, got you next to me

Feel my heartbeat drumming to the beat
Like a symphony
Feel my heartbeat drumming to the beat
Like a melody, come see

Feel my heartbeat drumming to the beat
Like a symphony
Feel my heartbeat drumming to the beat
Like a melody, come see

Time after time everybody came around
And I was dancing with you
Don't know your name,
Making me ashamed
To feel the way that I do
The lights went out
Couldn't leave without you, this is the place to be
I won't forget
The greatest times I've had when I was dancing with you

Feel my heartbeat drumming to the beat
Like a woman in love
Feel my heartbeat drumming to the beat
Like a woman in love so high

Feel my heartbeat drumming to the beat
Like a symphony
Feel my heartbeat drumming to the beat
Like a melody, come see

Feel my heartbeat
Feel my heartbeat
Feel my heartbeat

There was a time when everybody was around and I was dancing with you
Don't know your name,
Making me ashamed
To feel the way that I do
The lights went out
Couldn't leave without you, this is the place to be
I won't forget
The greatest times I've had when I was dancing with you

    General CommentThis simplicity of this song is fascinating. At first ti's just a pop song with trite 'heart' metaphors. Once you really listen to it and get inside the song you realize it's about a lot more. It describes that dream of any partygoer, or perhaps anyone in life, to find that perfect stranger, and have one perfect night. She feels the shame, the reluctance, but just fully embraces the spontaneity of life. That's all that anyone can ask for, to forget their life for one perfect night.

    General CommentI heard this in Girl Talks 'Night Ripper' and totally knew it was this song (even though I have never heard it until now). And as much as I love the original I can't get the GT version out of my head.

    General Commenti think it's "truly", not "drumming"

    General CommentIt's drumming, just in the Norwegian accent it's "droo-ming". I thought at first it sounded like truly. And I absolutely love this song, and I'm not a big fan of dance music.

    General CommentI'm not clear on the details but Annie's boyfriend who helped her get into the music industry died because of some kind of heart failure before Annie became "known" I guess.

    General CommentI was planning on saying the same thing as Indie YYY, and I think we both got it from Pitchfork, haha.

    This is one of my favorite songs ever. It really is a flawless piece of music.
