It’s Probably Me (by Sting, Michael Kamen, Eric Clapton, and David Sanborn) 
I just heard that Saxophonist David Sanborn passed away. Many may remember his sound from Richard Donner’s Lethal Weapon series, though he also worked with other musicians like David Bowie & Sting. It’s Probably Me is the theme song for Lethal Weapon 3, with a...

Houdini (by Dua Lipa) 

Before Barbie, I can’t say that I knew much about Dua Lipa. It turns out that she sings one of my favorite songs, “Swansong” from the Alita: Battle Angel soundtrack. She can also be seen in the upcoming spy comedy Argylle, directed by Matthew Vaughn.

The four note melody that runs through Dua Lipa’s Houdini reminds me of Alien’s “Brave New Love” from Chuck Russell’s 1988 version of The Blob. Looking past that, it’s an interesting dance track that’s super easy to move to (as the video shows).

Lyrics:

Okay
(Mmm)

I come and I go
Tell me all the ways you need me
I’m not here for long
Catch me or I go Houdini
I come and I go
Prove you got the right to please me
Everybody knows
Catch me or I go Houdini

Time is passin’ like a solar eclipse
See you watchin’ and you blow me a kiss
It’s your moment, baby, don’t let it slip
Come in closer, are you readin’ my lips?

They say I come and I go
Tell me all the ways you need me
I’m not here for long
Catch me or I go Houdini
I come and I go
Prove you got the right to please me
Everybody knows
Catch me or I go Houdini

If you’re good enough, you’ll find a way
Maybe you could cause a girl to change her ways
Do you think about it night and day?
Maybe you could be the one to make me stay

Everything you say is soundin’ so sweet (Ah-ah)
But do you practice everything that you preach? (Ah-ah)
I need something that’ll make me believe (Ah-ah)
If you got it, baby, give it to me

They say I come and I go
Tell me all the ways you need me
I’m not here for long
Catch me or I go Houdini
I come and I go (I come and I go)
Prove you got the right to please me
Everybody knows (I’m not here for long)
Catch me or I go Houdini

If you’re good enough, you’ll find a way
Maybe you could cause a girl to change her ways
Do you think about it night and day?
Maybe you could be the one to make me stay

Oh-oh
Ooh

I come and I go
Tell me all the ways you need me (Ooh)
I’m not here for long
Catch me or I go Houdini
I come and I go (I come and I go)
Prove you got the right to please me
Everybody knows (I’m not here for long)
Catch me or I go Houdini

Houdini
Catch me or I go Houdini
