Candy 02:56
Candy, it's been really nice, but I've gotta go Cause I can't be the part of your life you don't wanna know ...And I can't keep lying all the time And I know you'll find a better one They're all too easy to find And I'll just go away somewhere and slowly lose my mind Candy, they called you a baby, they called you a whore And I can't see the light at the end for you anymore ...And I can't keep lying all the time And I know you'll find a better one They're all too easy to find And I'll just go away somewhere and slowly lose my mind Candy, I can't be the one you want me to be Maybe it was only with you that I could be me ...And I can't keep lying all the time And I know you'll find a better one They're all too easy to find And I'll just go away somewhere and slowly lose my mind I'll just go away somewhere and slowly lose my mind

Well I see you move across the dance floor Oh but maybe I could dance with you another day Yes I know you're more than I could ask for But I have to say goodbye and move another way Cos' the music that they play here Doesn't work for me And I've a better place Where I would rather be Take my hand we'll make a stand Here in the land where we can dance forever Yes I see you move across the dance floor But there's something in my heart that makes a better beat I don't know how long your song will last for But I know that when its gone my life will be complete Cos' the music that they play here Doesn't work for me And I've a better place Where I would rather be Take my hand we'll make a stand Here in the land where we can dance forever DJ show me a new way with everything you play DJ this is a new day I need the sound of something sweet There's something in my heart that makes a better beat And somewhere in the world they're dancing in the street Come and set the music free, take another chance Come along and see where everyone can dance Cos' the music that they play here Doesn't work for me And I've a better place Where I would rather be Take my hand we'll make a stand Here in the land where we can dance forever

Yes I dreamed about conquering The unexplored and everything Still I don't know of a place I could ever live Yes I dreamed I would find a cure A magic potion to make me pure Still only coughing and sneezing is all I give But the only dream of my life Was someone like you Yes I dreamed that when I found you It would come true I've got to make you see That you can be The only dream of my life Yes I dreamed there would be a day A special love would come my way Someone to feel the same way I want to feel Yes I dreamed and here you are Like a wish upon a star Tell me it isn't a dream, tell me you are real But the only dream of my life Was someone like you Yes I dreamed that when I found you It would come true I've got to make you see That you can be The only dream of my life Once I dreamed, yes i dreamed Now you're here every morning and every night Cos' the only dream of my life Was someone like you Yes I dreamed that when I found you It would come true I've got to make you see That you can be The only dream of my life

Moon Song 02:50
Hold me close I hate you the most When you’re the only one Never could forgotten one I can hear you dear I wish That I was never born When you are the only one When I'm with you I don't know what to do Don't come back soon I don't want you to When you are the only one Hold my hand But understand You are the hated one And you are the only one If they could see What you have done to me You will not be The only one Now you’ll be the forgotten one You can look And you can touch That's why it's never fun When you are the only one You come back soon Breaking up the room And soon you'll be The forgotten one And to her the only one Never fun when you are the only one Hated one and you are the only one Only one Now you'll be the forgotten one

about

COLA JET SET is one of Elefant label’s national groups that are creating the greatest legion of fans in the Anglo-Saxon public, as anyone could see in their recent shows in the UK. That’s why, as a special present to their English fans, they are releasing a single with some of their most well-known songs translated into English, as well as a few covers of foreign groups. The band from Barcelona with a constantly growing roster of band members, which currently includes Ana (voice), Felipe (guitars), Ester and Ruth (backing vocals), Dani (bass), Alicia (voice and guitar), Joan (drums) and Manel (keyboards), gives a different nuance to their music with English phonemes. We can rediscover “En Esta Pista Ya No Se Puede Bailar” under the new title, “The Land Where We Can Dance Forever”. They maintain their highly danceable disco-pop spirit and their marvellous arrangements, somewhere between THE JACKSON 5 and THE SHANGRILA’S. And there’s also “El Sueño De Mi Vida”, this time “The Dream of My Life”, which, in this format, could be considered one of the hits from THE SCHOOL’s discography or one of THE PIPETTES’ first singles.

But there are also huge new things for the group’s followers, because this single includes two marvellous, previously unreleased covers, from two of our favorite groups. On one hand, “Candy”, by THE MAGNETIC FIELDS, which is revisited under a sixties prism, with a twelve-string guitar and the precious play of voices flooded with emotion for every second of the song, turning a song that we had previously associated with its original author into something that COLA JET SET created themselves. On the other hand, they released a version in Spanish of MY BLOODY VALENTINE’s “Moon Song on their first single, “Cosas Que No Se Olvidan”, which they have now rerecorded in its original language, leaving it like a luminous, addictive, sunshine pop delicacy.

Sometimes it’s interesting how something as simple as the language the song is being sung in can make such a difference in how the song turns out. And with “Lesson One: Listen & Repeat” we have rediscovered a new COLA JET SET, just as catchy, with the same pop spirit, but somehow different. We don’t know which we should keep. But, do we really have to choose?
