GROOVE THRU THE FLOOR Words & Music by Arlin Godwin / 1994 Here in my dark room, I feel the spirits call, The candles flicker dimly and I crawl, Upside, Down the wall, I hear the wolves, They howl baby and, Midnight's drawing near, So, Come on, Come on, Okay, Let's wear a groove thru the floor, You know what I'm saying, Come on, Okay, Let's wear a groove thru the floor, Here in my dark room, Behind the dungeon door, I feel the spirit lift me and I float, Sideways above the floor, I got the Devil in my blood and I would, Dance with you if you, Said I could - so, Come on, Come on, Okay, Let's wear a groove thru the floor, You know what I'm saying, Come on, Okay? Let's wear a groove thru the floor, Don't stop dancing - don't stop! If you don't stop that pacing, You'll wear a groove thru the floor, Dance! Wear a groove thru the floor...

DIM ALL THE LIGHTS Words & Music by Arlin Godwin / 2001 Dim all the lights and take me home, Where you and I can be alone, To do all the things, No one gets to see, Gets to see... Baby this is so good, Baby this is so damn good, Baby this is so good, Baby this is so god damned good, Pour me a drink, Unplug the phone, You never have to be alone, 'cause I'm into you, You're into me, Let's get stoned, Float away on our desire, Feel the beat, Turn up the fire, Baby make me lose, All control, All control, You make me lose, All control, Baby this is so good, Baby this is so damn good, Baby this is so good, Baby this is so god damned good, Dim all the lights and take me home, Where you and I can be alone, To do all the things, No one gets to see...

BOY SEVENTEEN Words & Music by Arlin Godwin / 2001 (These are the lyrics to the original version) Boy number one, Was incredibly fun, And number two?

Well, I'm afraid he's wanted dead or alive, Boy number six, Was in a porn magazine, It doesn't matter, I'm in love with boy seventeen, It doesn't matter, It doesn't matter...I'm in love,

THE SECRET LIFE OF BOYS Words & Music by Arlin Godwin / 2001 (These are the lyrics to the original version) Lower the cables Johnny, Why can't I tell you, About the secret life of boys? Why can't I tell you, About what goes on, Behind closed doors? I'm afraid once I get started, I might not be able to stop myself, Why can't I tell you, About the secret life of boys? Why can't I tell you, About my own private joy? I'm afraid once I get started, I might not be able to stop myself, Lower the cables Johnny.

about

Over the years I stupidly gave away a lot of demos on cassettes and sometimes on CDs. A number of friends collected these little souvenirs but a lot of early tracks got into the hands of DJs and radio people and slowly made their way out onto the internets. Often these versions were not the best or were flat out not finished.

So, this was a chance to revisit some of those tracks and polish them a little.

This album contains one of my most successful releases "Groove Thru The Floor". Also, a nearly 9 minute remix of "Boy Seventeen" as well as "Dim All The Lights" which ended up on a movie soundtrack.
