Everytime You Go Away


…you take a piece of me with you
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you

Go on and go free, yeah
Maybe you’re too close to see
I can feel your body move
It doesn’t mean that much to me
I can’t go on sayin’ the same thing
Just can’t you see, we’ve got everything do you even know we know

Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you, oh
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you

“Everytime You Go Away” is a song written by Daryl Hall and covered by Paul Young in 1985.

The original appeared on Hall & Oates’s 1980 album, Voices, although it was not released as a single. Paul Young’s version hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in July 1985. It remains his only number-one hit and was one of two top 10 hits he had on the U.S. pop singles chart. It also topped the U.S. adult contemporary chart for two weeks.

We Are The World


I feel like this is another album I don’t really need to explain why I purchased it. Recorded the year before I was born, I still remember people talking about it when ever they talked Michael. Anyone who is anyone from the 80’s is on this one. I feel like if there was a zombie apocalypse or alien invasion and 100 years from now, somebody found this in our home and had to piece it all together, they’d have everything they’d need to know for the 1980s!

“We Are the World” is a song and charity single originally recorded by the supergroup USA for Africa in 1985. It was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie and produced by Quincy Jones and Michael Omartian for the album We Are the World. With sales in excess of 20 million copies, it is one of the fewer than 30 all-time singles to have sold at least 10 million copies worldwide.

Awarded numerous honors—including three Grammy Awards, one American Music Award, and a People’s Choice Award—the song was promoted with a critically received music video, a home video, a special edition magazine, a simulcast, and several books, posters, and shirts. The promotion and merchandise aided the success of “We Are the World” and raised over $63 million for humanitarian aid in Africa and the US.
