The La's - Liverpool, England 1990 -

There she goes

There she goes again

Racing thru' my brain

And I just can't contain

This feeling that remains

 

There she blows

There she blows again

Pulsing thru' my vein

And I just can't contain

This feeling that remains

 

There she goes, there she goes again

She calls my name, pulls my train

No-one else could heal my pain

And I just can't contain

This feelin' that remains

There she goes

There she goes again

Chasing down my lane

And I just can't contain

This feeling that remains

- Lyrics by Lee Mavers - The La's - from the song "There she goes"

 

 

"From the chiming guitar landscapes to the heartfelt lyrics of Mavers to the overall gorgeous simplicity, "There She Goes" remains one of pop music's most endearing and sparkling short masterpieces. Originally released in 1988, the song appeared on the debut album by the La's "Go" (1990). Although the musical career of these Scousers (La is Scouse slang for "lad") was fleeting as a whole band, The La's played brilliant and timeless shimmering guitar-pop. The song has been covered by many other bands and often lends itself to the scoring of movies or telly programmes, but the original still stands up to the test of time. Maybe it's because I was living in Northern England in 1991 that this song is so evocative of other memories. Some of the lyrics, such as "She calls my name, pulls my train/ no one else could heal my pain" is still appropriate today. A beautiful karoake song if you're compelled to sing with your sweethearts like we do. We let the girls take the high notes though. "And I just can't contain/ This feeling that remains." The open aired beauty of this song gets me everytime. It's even known to tug at the heartstrings of even the most stolid of cynics. Oi love! Right lasses and la's!" ..... Cheers, Parky
