Little River Band – Cool Change

OK, it’s time to go back to a true EARWORM song. This one lives in the annals of most silly songs of all time. It has all the markings of classic cheese: piano, strings, sax solo, overly sensitive lyrics. And when the whole band comes in at the end to sing, “Time For A Cool Change,” and the horns and the guitars and the strings and the drums all grow louder and more urgent, well, it’s hard not to get swept up in the rush of swiss and cheddar and especially gouda, and believe that it IS TIME for a cool change. It is time to get away from society and sail on the cool and bright clear water. Time to stare at the full moon like a lover. And time for this song to get stuck in your head all day long.

If there’s one thing in my life that’s missing
It’s the time that I spend alone
Sailing on the cool and bright clear water
It’s kind of a special feeling

When you’re out on the sea alone
Staring at the full moon, like a lover
Time for a cool change
I know that it’s time for a cool change

Now that my life is so prearranged
I know that it’s time for a cool change
Well I was born in the sign of water
And it’s there that I feel my best

The albatross and the whales they are my brothers
There’s lots of those friendly people
And they’re showing me ways to go
And I never want to lose their inspiration

Time for a cool change
I know that it’s time for a cool change
Now that my life is so prearranged
I know that it’s time for a cool change

I’ve never been romantic
And sometimes I don’t care
I know it may sound selfish
But let me breathe the air

Let me breathe the air…
Well I was born in the sign of water
And it’s there that I feel my best
The albatross and the whales they are my brothers

It’s kind of a special feeling
When you’re out on the sea alone
Staring at the full moon, like a lover
Time for a cool change
