I'm in the dark, I'd like to read his mind But I'm frightened of the things I might find Oh, there must be something he's thinking of To tear him away-a-ay When I tell him that I'm falling in love Why does he say-a-ay
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry Uh-ah
I try so hard not to get upset Because I know all the trouble I'll get Oh, he tells me tears are something to hide And something to fear-eh-eh And I try so hard to keep it inside So no one can hear
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry Uh-ah
Oh! He wants me, but only part of the time He wants me, if he can keep me in line
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry Hush hush, shut up now, voices carry Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry Hush hush, darling, she might overhear Hush, hush - voices carry
He said shut up - he said shut up Oh God can't you keep it down Voices carry Hush hush, voices carry
I wish he would let me talk

Matt from Chicago, IlCyndi Lauper wanted to record "Voices Carry" but only if 'Til Tuesday didn't.
Matthew from Santa Monica, CaAimee Mann has said that Voices Carry was originally written "In the dark I'd like to read her mind," but her record company made her change it. Guess they weren't ready for a lesbian love song.
Joshua from New Berlin, WiMinor correction: The band's name is properly spelled 'til tuesday (i.e. in all lowercase letters), or at least that's how MTV displayed it each time they ran this song's video. Anything to stand out, I suppose.
Ronnie Dunn wrote "Boot Scootin' Boogie" before he teamed up with Kix Brooks to form Brooks & Dunn. It was originally recorded by the country group Asleep At The Wheel, but Brooks & Dunn did it themselves when it got its own line dance.
"Pretty In Pink" by Psychedelic Furs was released in 1981. Five years later, it inspired a movie of the same name starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer. The song was remixed for the re-release to have more Pop appeal.
