"Live It Up" as written by and Andrew Macarthur Smith....
How can you see looking through those tears?
Don't you know your worth your weight in gold?
I can't believe that you're alone in here
Let me warm your hands against the cold
A close encounter with a hardhearted man
Who never gave half of what he got
Has made you wish that you'd never been born
That's a shame cause you got the lot
Hey yeah you with the sad face
Come up to my place and live it up
You beside the dance floor
What do you cry for let's live it up
If you smiled the walls fall down
On all the people in this pickup joint
But if you laughed you'd level this town
Hey lonely girl that's just the point
Hey yeah you with the sad face
Come up to my place and live it up
You beside the dance floor
What do you cry for let's live it up
Just answer me the question why
You stand alone by the phone in the corner and cry
Hey baby
How can you see looking through those tears?
Don't you know your worth your weight in gold?
I can't believe that you're alone in here
Let me warm your hands against the cold
If you smiled the walls fall down
On all the people in this pickup joint
But if you laughed you'd level this town
Hey lonely girl that's just the point
Hey yeah you with the sad face
Come up to my place and live it up
You beside the dance floor
What do you cry for let's live it up
Let's live it up
Live it up ummm
Live it up
Hey yeah you
With the sad face
Come up to my place
Come up to my place baby
Hey yeah you with the sad face
Come up to my place and live it up
You beside the dance floor
What do you cry for let's live it up
Hey yeah you with the sad face
Come up to my place and live it up
You beside the dance floor
What do you cry for let's live it up

    General Comment80's hit, it's a nice song to listen to, very catchy.
    Pretty much obvious lyrics, unknown band, and a WEIRD video.

    General CommentIt's not a one hit wonder, and they're not an unknown band. They're an Aussie band and they were pretty big here. They also did "Nips are gettin' bigger" which still gets radio play, and "If you leave me" which gets lots of air time too. Also did "World seems difficult" which is on a couple of movies.

    My InterpretationHere's a different take - ever considered a darker interpretation, that the singer is a sexual predator, preying on vulnerable (& drunk) young women?

    Seriously, go back and listen to it again and you'll see!
