    Video by Berkhee Bayarkhuu

    Lyrics:
    Шөнийн зүүд шиг
    Эргэлзээтэй амьдралыг би мартсан
    Өдрийн бодол шиг
    Хязгааргүй харанхуй руу тэмүүлнэ ээ

    Түүний харцнаас гэрэл тодроно
    Сэтгэл зүрх чинь надруу тэмүүлнэ ээ
    Би эндээс явмаар байна
    Эргэж харалгүй урагшаа тэмүүлнэ ээ

    Lyrics:
    Түнэр харанхуй болж
    Түмнээрээ нойрсох үеэр
    Тэнэж яваа хэдэн залуус
    Тайван амгаланг эвдэнэ

    Сүнгэнэх машин үгүй
    Солигдох гэрлэн дохион доор
    Хов хоосон замаа дагаад
    Улаанбаатраар алхалнаа

    Тэртээх юмс бүрхэг
    Эрээлчлэн харагдах үед
    Толгойгоо дийлэхгүй би
    Тултал нь хөгжмөө чангална

    Сэрүүг салхины өөдөөс
    Сэгсгэр үсээ намируулаад
    Яаж харьснаа санахгүй
    Улаанбаатардаа нойрсноо

    Нойрсноо , алхалнаа

    Lyrics

    It's so good to be back here again
    Having fun with all my friends
    When everybody says hello
    You know there's nowhere else to go
    It's so good, yeah it's so good
    It's so good to be back home again

    Baby I've been so far away
    Been so lonely every night and day
    Here's only one thing I wanna do
    I wanna get back home to you
    When my baby holds me tight
    You know I want to stay the night

  • The Tourists LIVE 1979 for the BBC PLUS BONUS TRACK

    30:56

    Radio broadcast of an early concert given by The Tourists, back in 1979. I've included a special bonus track, from one of their FINAL concerts, a cover of the Beatles Ticket To Ride as well, from 1980. The slide show is various photos, still frames, and record sleeves. The Tourists evolved from the three-piece band The Catch, which was Annie Lennox, Dave Stewart, and Peet Combs. That trio released only one single, Borderline c/w Black Blood before expanding their line-up and refining their sound into a more pop / rock blend, but influenced by a wide range of styles. Their biggest success was the cover of Dusty Springfield's I Only Want To Be With You, which pushed Annie into the front line more and more, eventually causing tension with Peet, the lead singer, lead guitarist and main songwriter for the group. Annie was uncomfortable singing someone else's lyrics, and wrote some of her own material, but tensions created by this dynamic (as well as substance abuse by various band members) led to Dave and Annie branching off in their own direction with the internationally successful Eurythmics. Annie has since claimed she did not even own a single record from her time with the group, and once caught herself in a cafe tapping her toes to one of the songs, not even realizing it was one of her own. She has made peace with the past, and freely admits there were some wonderful moments on vinyl and on stage made during this time, as well as personal memories and friendships. Peet sadly passed away due to complications from his drug and drink problems, and left this world on less than cordial terms with his former band mates. On Annie Lennox's recent Now I Let You Go tour- a museum exhibit of memories from her lifetime in the arts, where she would play acoustic versions of some of her favorite songs, she thrilled the crowd (an herself, it seemed) when she performed an impromptu version of I Only Want To Be With You.

  • Countdown - Cherry Ripe Interviews The Tourists- September 7, 1980

    4:03

    A segment from the long running Australian music TV series Countdown, which aired on the ABC from 1974-1987.

    This particular segment aired during the Countdown episode which originally aired on September 7, 1980, on the ABC.

    This clip features an interview of British band The Tourists, featuring band members Annie Lennox, Dave Stewart, and Jim Toomey, conducted by Countdown London Correspondent Cherry Ripe.

    The interview features a discussion about how they chose to do a cover of ‘Dusty Springfield’s single ‘I Only Want To Be With You’. They also discuss the influence of 1960s music on their own, the length of time they’ve been together, their forthcoming album, and forthcoming tour.

    ‘I Only Want To Be With You’ plays in the background, and before and after the interview.


    Vaxfacts: The Tourists would disband within months of this interview airing, with members going their separate ways. Fellow band members Peet Coombes and Eddie Chin would form the band Acid Drops, to little success. Lennox and Stewart would have the most success post Tourists, forming their most successful musical partnership, the Eurythmics. They would form the Eurythmics in a hotel in Wagga Wagga, a town in New South Wales, Australia, while experimenting with a portable synthesizer. It was also at this time that they split as a romantic couple. The band name comes from a method of teaching music to students.

    LYRICS
    Momma said, “You look sad today,
    Don’t you want to go outside and play?
    It’s up to you to feel this way
    But son, you look kind of sad today.”

    And I said, “Momma, yes I’m sad
    If you only knew the day I’ve had
    Just leave it be, and don’t tell dad
    Because today I feel like feeling sad”

    ‘Cause the world is falling apart
    And my house don’t feel like home
    And my girlfriend’s getting married
    But not to me
    And God gave me a voice
    But I also have a choice
    And I want to be sad today

    She said, “Son, I know the pain is real
    It’s not who you are, but it’s how you feel
    Just give it time and it will heal
    But for now I know the pain is real”

    And I said, “Momma, have you felt it too?
    Can you tell me how you made it through?
    ‘Cause maybe what you said is true
    Oh, but I don’t know what I’m supposed to do

    When my world is falling apart
    And my house don’t feel like home
    And my girlfriend’s getting married
    But not to me
    And if God plays a part
    Why’s he hiding in the dark?
    And why am I so sad today?”

    So when you’re stuck inside your head
    And when the setting sun won’t set
    Just stand and face the day instead
    Listen to what momma said

    Momma said, “You look sad today,
    Don’t you want to go outside and play?”
    Well I’ll just smile and go my way
    ‘Cause I don’t have to be sad today
    No, I don’t have to be sad today

    I don’t have to be sad

    LYRICS
    Let me explain
    When I saw you on the corner
    I just had to take a second to breathe
    And I can’t be blamed for how I stared
    When I saw your face
    I realized the past 28 years I’ve been living
    Stuck in a haze inside my head

    Tell me how to get to you
    ‘Cause I don’t know what else to do
    Suddenly I feel something new
    Tell me how to get to you

    Now let me rephrase
    ‘Cause when I told you I need you,
    I love you, adore you
    What I meant to say was
    Without you I think I’d die
    ‘Cause you make me lose control somehow
    Can’t keep my words inside my mouth
    If you let me in, I’ll let it out
    Won’t you stick around?

    Tell me how to get to you
    ‘Cause I don’t know what else to do
    Suddenly I feel something new
    Tell me how to get to you
    ‘Cause I don’t know what else to do
    Suddenly I feel something new
    Tell me how to get to you
    Tell me how to get to you

    LYRICS
    I packed a bag tonight
    I’m headed out the door
    Gonna catch a redeye flight
    ‘Cause I can’t take it here anymore
    The city has been good to me
    It’s everything I thought it’d be
    But there’s something missing that I just can’t shake
    I packed a bag tonight
    And I’m on my way

    Oh, Oh

    It’s 4am, I’m waking up
    The airplane’s touching down
    The taxi comes to pick me up
    And take me into town
    The driver asks me for my name
    Where I’m from, and why I came
    I take my seat and I close the door, and I say
    It’s the City of Angels, and there’s one I’m looking for

    Oh, Oh

    So I’m trading in the skyline
    For a West Coast ocean view
    I did my time in NYC
    But I’ve got somewhere else to be
    I’m bound for LAX
    My destination’s Y O U
