"Electric Twist" as written by and Alison Loren Sudol....
You should be wilder, you're no fun at all
Yeah, thanks for the input
Thanks for the call

With dull knives and white hands
The blood of a stone
Cold to the touch, right
Right down the bone

But you give me the electric twist and it kicks like kicks like a pony
And true, you might get away with it
It's a risk, it's a risk yeah

Picked from a hot grove, packaged for sale
It drips down the sleeve
Gets under your nails
A loss of the senses
A chip off a tooth
The smells of the city
They ride in your suit

He says don't think don't talk
Don't think
Don't think don't talk
Don't think
Don't think don't talk
But I don't think I want to

'Cause you give me the electric twist and it kicks and it kicks like a pony
And true, you might run away with it, it's a risk it's a risk yeah
Because it kicks yeah
It really kicks yeah

And the touch of your lips it's a shock not a kiss
It's electric twist, it's electric twist

And the touch of your lips it's a shock not a kiss
It's electric twist, it's electric twist

And the touch of your lips it's a shock not a kiss
It's electric twist, it's electric twist

And the touch of your lips it's a shock not a kiss
It's electric twist, it's electric twist

He says don't think don't talk Don't think
Don't think don't talk Don't think
Don't think don't talk
But I don't think I want to

'Cause you give me the electric twist and it kicks and it kicks yeah

And true, let ya get away with it, it's a risk it's a risk yeah

You might get away with it
It's a risk yeah
But it kicks yeah
It really kicks yeah

    General Commentmaybe.

    i think it's about being with someone that brings about your wilder, more carefree side in a relationship versus all the relationships that came before it, which are now considered monotonous and dull.

    he's telling her to let go of that boring, processed way of being with someone, and to take it as it comes and just go with everything ("don't think, don't talk").

    and she's saying how he might get away with it, and even though he's making her feel good, ultimately their relationship might not last, but she's okay with that, accepting that it's part of love ("it's a risk, it's a risk, yeah").

    a song about being with someone who's not like the others. someone who changes your way of viewing love and dating, and it feels good. it's a vibrant, crazy experience.

    General CommentI think it's about a relationship with someone who she's got nothing in common with, but the physical side of things is good and exciting - "and the touch of your lips it's a shock not a kiss / it's electric twist" etc.

    General CommentI've always thought this song is a metaphor for the record industry. Kind of like Sara Bareille's "Love Song". It's funny because this song is so different from her typical material.. more upbeat / "wild"..and the whole "don't think don't talk".. though she's okay with the change. "It's a risk, but is kicks." I don't know, just another way of looking at it.
