Poison Arrow
ABC Lyrics


If I were to say to you, "can you keep a secret?"
Would you know just what to do or where to keep it?
Then I say, "I love you", foul the situation
Hey girl, I thought we were the right combination

Who broke my heart, you did, you did
Bow to the target, blame Cupid, Cupid
You think you're smart, stupid, stupid

Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow
Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow

No rhythm in cymbals, no tempo in drums
Love on arrival, she comes when she comes
Right on the target but wide of the mark
What I thought was fire was only the spark

The sweetest melody
Is an unheard refrain
So lower your sights, yeah
But raise your aim, raise your aim

Who broke my heart, you did, you did
Bow to the target, blame Cupid, Cupid
You think you're smart, stupid, stupid

Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow
Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow

I thought you loved me, but it seems you don't care

I care enough to know, I can never love you

Who broke my heart, you did, you did
Bow to the target, blame Cupid
You think you're smart, that's stupid
Right from the start when you knew we would part

Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow
Shoot that poison arrow to my heart, heart, heart
Shoot that poison arrow

Heart
Shoot that poison arrow
Shoot that poison arrow

@? Honestly. the fact you could even seriously ask that question is ridiculous.

I could go over a multitude of musical periods, where would one even start? Baroque, vivaldi perhaps? Three Bs of the mid-late 19th century through to the Romantics of Puccini, Chopin, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, and Strauss.
The wonderful Swing, Jazz, Blues and Big Band period of the 20s, 30s, and 40s. Glen Miller, Walter Page, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Frank Sinatra. The West Coast swing bands.

The 1920s-30s emergence of the AAB pattern structure of the Blues, Ma Rainey, Billie Holliday, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, . Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, BB King.

The glorious 60s, experimental sounds of Floyd, Yardbirds, Dylan, Hendrix, Stones, Creedence, CSN, Santana to name just a few.

Ska and Rocksteady. Silvertones, Skalites, Phyllis Dillon, Prince Buster.

Then came the 70s ELO, Sugar Hill Gang, Ramones, a million disco artists, AC DC, Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Who, Bowie, Joan Armatrading, Jackson 5, Cold Chisel. 70s Roots Reggae and dub of Gregory Issacs, Toots, Lee Scratch Perry, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley,

1970s Second generation ska revival with Two Tone, Specials, Bad Manners, The Beat, Selekta, Madness,

The list goes on and on...

80s produced some good music, granted, but most of it was shite. Compared to pretty much everything that came before the 80s, and some that's come since, as musical decades go, it was weak.
People still listen to, and like 80s music, myself included, because of sentimental reasons. It takes you back to a time when the world seemed more possitive, economies were strong, you had your life ahead of you, and there were no woke twats ruining everything with their leftist progressive horseshit. But the reality is, for the most part 80s music was comparitively poor.

I'll say this, Pink Floyd for example started in the 60s, and ACDC in the 70s, they've been going for 40-50 years and if they announced a tour tomorrow they'd be sold out in less than 24 hours. People still listen to Mozart, and Brahms over 100 years later. Even Boy George and Human League videos get views on Youtube. But i guarantee you in 20 years time they won't even know who Cardi B was.

With that said, the idea there is any decade that represents a 'golden Age' of music is utter bollocks, but if there were, it certainly ain't the 80s that's for sure.

That should answer your question.
