ThePogues          The Who

Hell yeah…it’s the penultimate New Music Monday! This week, it’s my mash-up of The Pogue’s “Haunted” & The Who’s “Baba O’ Riley”:

Haunted/Baba O’ Riley

Do you remember that sunny day?
Somewhere in London
In the middle of nowhere
Didn’t have nothing to do that day
Didn’t wanna do nothing anyway

You got a way of walking
You got a way of talking
And there’s something about you
And now I know I never ever
Want to be without you

I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
Of your precious love
Of your precious love

Out here in the fields
I farm for my meals
I get my back into my living

I don’t need to fight
To prove I’m right
I don’t need to be forgiven

Teenage wasteland
It’s just teenage wasteland
Teenage wasteland
Oh, yeah
It’s teenage wasteland

The first time I saw you,
Standing in the street
You were so cool,
You could have put out Vietnam
My girlfriends ask me, “What’s she like?”
I say, “She’s kind of shy,
But that’s the kind of guy I am,
I’m her kind of guy”

I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
Of your precious love
Of your precious love

Teenage wasteland
It’s just teenage wasteland
Teenage wasteland
Oh, yeah
It’s teenage wasteland
