Branigan, Laura - Spanish Eddie Lyrics




There was heat in the air
Cops everywhere you looked
There wasn't a lot
The breaks that you got
You know you took

And I remember wonderin'
Where you've been
The night Spanish Eddie
Cashed it in

The night Spanish Eddie
Cashed it in
They were playin'
"Desolation Row" on the radio

The night Spanish Eddie
Fell from grace
There was amazement on his face
On the night that Eddie failed
Sanity prevailed

It was June or July
When the heat from above beat down
It was famine or drought
When the brothers went out of style uptown

And we was mixin'
Vicks with lemon gin
The night Spanish Eddie
Cashed it in

The night Spanish Eddie
Cashed it in
They were playin'
"Desolation Row" on the radio

The night Spanish Eddie
Made front page
His revolution came of age
He wrote "surrender" on the wall
The night he took the fall

I heard someone say
"He's tryin' to fly"
Like Eddie used to say
"We'll do when we die"

I know someone turned you
For a spin
The night Spanish Eddie
Cashed it in

The night Spanish Eddie
Cashed it in
They were playin'
"Desolation Row" on the radio

The night Spanish Eddie
Fell from grace
There was amazement on his face
On the night that Eddie failed
Sanity prevailed

The night Spanish Eddie
Cashed it in
They were playin'
"Desolation Row" on the radio

The night Spanish Eddie
Cashed it in
They were playin'
"Desolation Row" on the radio

The night Spanish Eddie
Cashed it in
They were playin'
"Desolation Row" on the radio

  6. ShreadTheWeapon

    Is it me, or does this video include another mix with an alternate vocal take? It doesn’t sound the same as what’s on *Best of Branigan.* Did Laura’s label release different versions for the album and single?

  21. CiconneAnnaMae

    1985 was a superb year for pop music and I have always loved *Spanish Eddie* by *Laura Branigan* taken from the HOLD ME album. The single did not chart as high as it should have been even though it is (still) a melodious pop ditty.

  22. Diego Velasquez

    Laura Branigan's beautiful voice may she rest in peace but her music will never die

    Diego Velasquez

    @Alan M Jolly good words friend

    Alan M Jolly

    @Diego Velasquez

    She had a heart and sang with passion.

    I'm only rediscovering again after many years.

    When I was younger I loved Laura and music in general, then there was a period of two years I didn't listen to music.

    I wish this was on radio moreoften.

    I could see many people loving her... 👍

    Diego Velasquez

    @Alan M Jolly I agree

    Alan M Jolly

    @Diego Velasquez

    She was amazing

    Diego Velasquez

    @Alan M Jolly eternally
