Jennifer Beals inspires a song

 

The Lovebugs are a very popular pop band in Switzerland and on their latest album “Life Is Today” one particular track caught our attention. The song in question is titled “Jennifer Beals”.
Adrian, the lead singer and writer of the band, tells Jennifer-Beals.com what inspired his song: “ I saw Jennifer Beals in Flashdance when I was a teenager back in the eighties and had, like most men, a crush on her.  By chance I saw the movie again a few months ago on tv. It brought back so many memories and I thought that it would be great to turn them into a song. The song tells about somebody who lives for passion, somebody who gives everything for her (or his) dream and don’t care about what other people might think or say”.

It’s a good song (and album), check it out on Itunes http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/life-is-today-deluxe-version/id510126356

And these are the lyrics of “Jennifer Beals”:

You’ll never get to heaven like this
Your father used to preach
So many lessons you had to learn
No one could ever teach
You’ve been working all day
Dreaming your life away
Waiting for the nights to fall
Light as a feather
No matter the weather
You still got it all
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Like Jennifer Beals
Nothing really matters when you dance
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
That’s how it feels
All you gotta do is take a chance
You were paying the price
You fell hard once or twice
Still it never was a tough call
You’ve been toiling away
To get your chance one day
Always looking for the next best ball
Light as a feather
A rose in the heather
You still got it all
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Like Jennifer Beals
Nothing really matters when you dance
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
That’s how it feels
All you gotta do is take a chance
The sooner the better
It all comes together
The sooner the better
It’s your curtain call
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
You wanna dance
Like Jennifer Beals
Yeah, that’s how it feels
Like Jennifer Beals
Nothing really matters when you dance
You’ll never get to heaven like this
Your father used to preach
You’ll never get to heaven like this
No one could ever
No one could ever teach
You never cared ’bout a word he said
You’ve got your heaven inside
