Jackie DeShannon – When You Walk In The Room (1964)

Shannon, yer a corker!

– Tom Cruise (in some piece of shit movie we endured once but swiftly forgot! Til now!)

Here a young Sharon Lee Myers knocks out one of her many great tracks, the oft-covered classic When You Walk In The Room from back in 1964. From the vid, it seems folks could really dance back in 64! Very fucking groovy man!

Executives at Liberty Records thought the name Sharon Myers would not sell records, so she adopted the name Jackie DeShannon, believed to be the name of an Irish ancestor! Erm, sorry to tell you this Sharon, but nobody in paddyland has the name DeShannon!

Sharon’s 64 now. Not sure whether she’s still on the scene or not!

I can feel a new expression on my face.
I can feel a glowing sensation taking place.
I can hear the guitars playing a lovely tune,
Ev-er-ry-time that you – walk in the room.

I close my eyes for a second and pretend it’s me you want.
Meanwhile I try to act so nonchalant.
I feel a summer’s night with a magic moon.
Everytime that you – walk in the room.

Maybe it’s a dream come true,
Standing right alongside of you.
Wish I could tell you how much I care,
But I only – have the nerve to stare.

I can feel a-something pounding in my brain,
Just anytime that someone speaks your name.
Trumpets sound, I hear thunder boom.
Everytime that you – walk in the room.
Everytime that you – walk in the room.
Everytime that you – walk in the room.
Everytime that you…
