Make me happy

Sha-la-la-la, la-la-la
Oh, baby
Sha-la-la-la, la-la-la
Oh, baby

I've been gone so long, I don't know what to do, oh, baby
And I know you don't know all I've been going through, baby
Oh, make me happy baby, so I can say

And I love you, oh
I'm thinkin' of you, oh

I know you can tell what's on my mind, baby
And I've been feeling this way for such a long time, yeah, baby
Oh, make me happy baby, yeah
Oh, make me happy, I want to be happy, yeah, yeah

Make me happy

I've tried and this feeling just won't die, oh
Make you cry, yeah

Well, it's something that just gets down in your bones, baby
And once I see you I can't leave your love alone, yeah, baby
Oh, make me happy, baby
Oh, make me happy, baby, let me sing

Sha-la-la-la-la-la, baby
Oh, let me sing
Sha-la-la-la-la-la, baby

    Beautiful song about a mans sadness at doing wrong to a girl who only ever brought him happiness. Pure class and sung as only Al Green can!

Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."

Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
