78 – Jerry Lee Lewis – Breathless (1958)

Trata-se do ultimo hit top 10 de Jerry Lee Lewis antes da sua carreira ser descarrilada por um escandalo. Ele casou com uma prima de 13 anos de idade e a sociedade americana ficou horrorizada quando ficou sabendo e as rádios pararam de tocar as músicas de Lewis.

Em 1983, o filme Breathless, estrelado por Richard Gere, tinha breathless tocada por Lewis e pelo grupo punk de Los Angeles chamado X. Na cena final, Gere canta a cancao para a sua amada antes de pegar no revolver e começar a atirar na policia, que está chegando perto pra pega-lo. Então os créditos começam a subir enquanto a versão do X fica tocando.

A letra:

Now if you love me please don't tease
If I can hold then let me squeeze
My heart goes round and round
My love comes a tumblin' down
You leave me ahhhhhhh
Breathless Ah!
I shake all over and you know why
I am sure its love honey thats no lie
Cause when you call my name
You know I burn like a wooden flame
You leave me ahhhhhh
Breathless!
OOOOOOOhhhhhh baby Oooooooh crazy!
Your much to much Honey I can't love you enough
It's alright to hold me tight
But when you love me love me riiiiighhhht!
Ah come on baby now don't be shy
This love was ment for you and I
Wind, rain, sleet or snow
I am gonna be wherever you go
You have left me ahhhh
Breathless Ah!
WEeeeeeellll
oooooh baby mmmmnnn crazy
Your much to much
I can't love you enough
Well its alright to hold me tight
But when you love me love me right
Ah come on baby now don't be shy
This love was ment for you and I
Wind, rain, sleet or snow
I am gonna be wherever you go
You leave me ahhhh
Breathless Ah!
