Chant No 1
Spandau Ballet Lyrics


I checked the time, it was almost time
A curious smell, an intangible crime
I'm washing my clothes, but the stain still grows
Cover your eyes, the stain still shows

I feel the gaze against my skin
I feel the gaze against my skin
I know this feeling is a lie
I know this feeling is a lie
There's a guilt within my mind
There's a guilt within my mind
I know this feeling is a lie
I know this feeling is a lie

I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on

Oh, I should question not ignore
Oh, I should question not ignore
Songs are always buried deep
Songs are always buried deep
There's a lion in my arms
There is a motion in my arm
Oh I should question not ignore
I should believe and not ignore

I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on

I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on

I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on

You go down, down
Pass the talk of town
You go down Greek street
Then it's underground
Well it's Soho life
For this mobile knife
It's the place to shoot
Friday night beat route

I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on

I love Chant No 1. It's a very powerful song, with much energy in it. 🎶 Whenever I hear it, I want to dance... I remember how SB performed this song in the O2 Arena, on the Reformation Tour in 2010. I loved that great performance, too...

Bryce New

James Dominguez

I totally agree, the whole act is impressive. I love the horns and the chorus!

Spandau Ballet before True and Gold.

Instinction and Coffee Club are my favourites from this period.

I think this was their first song with a brass section. Did it inspire them to include the sax more? In those early videos we've seen Steve Norman only on guitar and percussions.

Margo Ochoa
