Amp Fiddler: If I Don’t

‘Cause everythin’ [Incomprehensible]
You the one I’ve been dreamin’ of
Baby, you’ve gone away
Say you’ll never come back again
And I know that

If I don’t think ’bout you
I’ll be sad, yeah
If I don’t stop thinkin’ about you
I’ll be mad
If I don’t not think about you
I’ll be glad

‘Cause if I don’t think about you
Everythin’ all around is kinda blue
And girl, you know
Our life is gonna change

And if you leave, leave alone
I will never call you up again
And deep inside you know that

If I don’t think ’bout you
I’ll be sad, yeah
If I don’t stop thinkin’ ’bout you
I’ll be mad, yeah
If I don’t not think ’bout you
I’ll be glad, yeah

You’ll be out of my life
Baby, we are in love

And if I don’t think ’bout you
I’ll be sad, oh
If I don’t think ’bout you
I’ll be glad

If I don’t stop thinkin’ ’bout you
I’ll lose my mind
‘Cause baby, you leave me out of sight
And I’ll be away from your life, movin’ on

‘Cause if I don’t stop thinkin’ about you
I’ll be sad, oh
If I don’t stop thinkin’ ’bout you
If I don’t not think about you
I’ll be sad

If I don’t

my blog: Forsyth and Parov: I just gotta dance!
This posting will introduce you to the unique pairing of a young YouTube dancer and the music of Parov Stelar. Amp Fiddler reminded me of the genre of music known as electroswing so check out this related blog entry. Who knew the 1940s would translate well into a modern 21st century?

Personal Notes
I have an amusing story about how I “discovered” this song. I have been rewatching various episodes of the television series Castle and have discovered a plethora (like that one?) of funny moments, romantic scenes and snippets of music I had not appreciated before. Geeze, I have become totally captivated by this show. Am I now (officially) a Castle junkie?

In season 1 episode 4 called “Hell Hath No Fury”, we end with an amusing confrontation between Castle and Beckett when she discovers the name of the character Castle is basing on Beckett is “Nikki Heat”. The clip (Castle – Are you making fun of me?) ends with a brief excerpt from a piece of music that I hunted down by Googling the lyrics. While I thought the song was well placed in the show, I had no idea I would find out just how terrific the original is and what an extraordinarily original video goes along with it. Wow, this is really, really good.
