The Smiths- Please let me get what I want…!

There are some songs which are written from the heart. Such songs make you feel like they should never end. You can keep on hearing it again and again. It never gets old. Probably one such song of an old English Band The Smiths has been lingering in my head since I heard it for the first time in the movie 500 Days Of Summer.

The way they begin “Good times for a change…” asking God how he has been through so much pain. But then he wants some good time. Asking in a voice that touches so deeply “Please, please, please … Let me, let me… Let me… Get what I want, this time”. It makes you feel the pain in his voice.

Also the mandolin played in the end is so sweet. Though the song is just around two minutes, its really refreshing. Here I leave you with a melody I can guarantee you will cherish for the rest of your life. 

“Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want” 
Good times for a change
see, the luck I’ve had
can make a good man
turn bad

So please please please
let me, let me, let me
let me get what I want
this time

Haven’t had a dream in a long time
see, the life I’ve had
can make a good man bad

So for once in my life
let me get what I want
Lord knows it would be the first time
Lord knows it would be the first time
