She met him 1980 in a school disco He kissed her for the first time on the last bus home He said "You be DEBBIE HARRY, I'll be JOEY RAMONE" She saw shooting stars flash by The moon exploded in the sky Her heart flipped when they kissed Star dust on her lips Special vat in the dark Getting pissed in the park She's in love, she's in love And when they walked down town all the people would stare They used to laugh at her clothes and the colour of her hair She was 17 and she didn't care ‘Cos baby's gonna take her everywhere ‘Cos he said they'd live in New York And the stars would be their own She was DEBBIE HARRY He was JOEY RAMONE Yeah he said they'd live in New York And the stars would be their own ‘Cos she was DEBBIE HARRY He was JOEY, he was JOEY RAMONE When she met him she was standing in a pure white light He said "d'ya like the SEX PISTOLS, have you got a light?" And all the stars were shining on a perfect Saturday night Holding him tight Kissing him in the dark In the back of daddys car Have a drink have a laugh Do you want my autograph No school summers out Make me wanna twist and shout Down on the beaches looking at the peaches When they walked down town all the people would stare They used to laugh at her clothes and the colour of her hair She was 17 and she didn't care ‘Cos baby's gonna take her everywhere ‘Cos he said they'd live in New York And the stars would be their own She was DEBBIE HARRY He was JOEY RAMONE Yeah he said they'd live in New York And the stars would be their own ‘Cos she was DEBBIE HARRY He was JOEY, he was JOEY RAMONE ‘Cos he said they'd live in New York And the stars would be their own She was DEBBIE HARRY He was JOEY RAMONE Yeah he said they'd live in New York And the stars would be their own ‘Cos she was DEBBIE HARRY He was JOEY, he was JOEY RAMONE

If i pull the pin on this hand grenade, baby baby would you run away? Sometimes wish I had a tommy gun, I could blow your face off just for fun I don't care about the things you do I've got no inclination to be with you Everything we had baby's down the tube So there's nothing left to say So come on baby come on baby come on baby SHUT YOUR MOUTH So come on baby come on baby come on baby SHUT YOUR MOUTH If you left me baby on a plane tonight, i wouldn't care and i wouldn't cry If you give me some dynamite, I'll blast you into the stars so bright I don't care if you are scared of heights NASA could make you a satellite You could orbit the earth transmitting shite And no-one would care So come on baby come on baby come on baby SHUT YOUR MOUTH So come on baby come on baby come on baby SHUT YOUR MOUTH You go on and on like a prog-rock song, nobody cares To all the things you say and all the words you shout, baby shut your mouth And the milkman, and the postman, and all the children running about Are queuing up to shout at you, baby shut your mouth If I filled your flat with laughing gas, would it work better than your Prozac? Would run around like the banana splits, wiggling your ass and shaking Your hips? Think you would be better living underground With the badgers and the moles you'd be homeward bound We could come out and party when the sun goes down In a field far away So come on baby come on baby come on baby SHUT YOUR MOUTH So come on baby come on baby come on baby SHUT YOUR MOUTH

about

At least we can see fulfilled one of our dreams: releasing an exclusive HELEN LOVE single on Elefant Records. They are one of the bands who have better used the pop aesthetics and the fascination we all have for the colourful icons in pop culture, and we love them for that. We are also going to seal this relationship with a single in two formats: CD-single and 7" vinyl (pop music's own format), both in limited editions and luxury packagings (CD on digipack and pink coloured vinyl).

HELEN LOVE have come up with three wonderful songs for this single: infectious bubblegum-pop for fun and all-night dancing. "Junk shop discotheque" is a glam-rock, punk-pop bomb with a disco flavour and vocoder vocals (with echoes of Suzi Quatro, DENIM and LA CASA AZUL), which will fill up dancefloors all over the globe. Even more frantic dancing is found on the remix of "Debbie loves Joey" (a love story between Debbie Harry and Joey Ramone, the original version of which appeared on the "The bubblegum killers" EP, which was released on American label Sympathy For The Record Industry), whilst "Shut your mouth", the third song that completes this fantastic single, is a powerful melodic, guitar-pop pill.

The cover on the single is by Punk Boy Jamie (who is usually behind the band's characteristic artwork and their website, too), and the three songs have been mastered by Xavier Alarcón to guarantee you the best possible sound.
