Jose Tello The Hot Sugar Band has really outdone itself with this album. The rhythm section in all of these tracks breathes life into old, scratchy songs; particularly in The Grabtown Grapple. You can't *not dance* to this. Favorite track: The Grabtown Grapple.

Arnas Razgūnas HOT SUGAR BAND is truly rockstar band in European Swing Scene - everybody heard of them, everybody heard them, everybody got bored of them and everybody LOVED them all over again and again, because they already became a benchmark for the swing bands for dancers. Favorite track: Sandu.

Track Name: I'm Beginning To See The Light
I never cared much for moonlit skies
I never wink back at fireflies
But now that the stars are in your eyes
I'm beginning to see the light

I never went in for afterglow
Or candlelight on the mistletoe
But now when you turn the lamp down low
I'm beginning to see the light

Used to ramble through the park
Shadowboxing in the dark
Then you came and caused a spark
That's a four-alarm fire now

I never made love by lantern-shine
I never saw rainbows in my wine
But now that your lips are burning mine
I'm beginning to see the light
Track Name: Gloomy Sunday (feat. Nicolle Rochelle)
Sunday is gloomy
My hours are slumberless
Dearest the shadows
I live with are numberless

Little white flowers
Will never awaken you
Not where the black coach
Of sorrow has taken you

Angels have no thoughts
Of ever returning you
Would they be angry
If I thought of joining you

Gloomy Sunday

Gloomy is Sunday
With shadows I spend it all
My heart and I
Have decided to end it all

Soon there'll be candles
And prayers that are said I know
Let them not weep
Let them know that I'm glad to go

Death is no dream
For in death I'm caressin' you
With the last breath of my soul
I'll be blessin' you

Gloomy Sunday

Dreaming, I was only dreaming
I wake and I find you asleep
In the deep of my heart here

Darling I hope
That my dream never haunted you
My heart is tellin' you
How much I wanted you
Gloomy Sunday

Track Name: Don't Get Around Much Anymore
Missed the Saturday dance
Heard they crowded the floor
Couldn't bear it without you
Don't get around much anymore

Thought I'd visit the club
Got as far as the door
They'd have asked me about you
Don't get around much anymore

Hmmm darling, I guess my mind's more at ease
But nevertheless, why stir up memories

Been invited on dates
Might have gone but what for
Awfully different without you
Don't get around much anymore
Track Name: Wondering Where
Wondering where you can be
Me and the Moon are
Longing for your company
You seem to stray far
Though you are hiding behind a star
I want you to know how really mean you are
Mamma my only advice for you
that ain't enough but it will have to do
Gazing through a hazy light
Me and the moon will
Miss you on the summer nights
Oh baby won't you hold me tight
Glowin till dawn
You will be gone
The moon jumps over and and ill be alone
Wonderin' where you can be with me
Track Name: Danny Boy
Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the roses falling
It's you, it's you must go and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
It's I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
[Live version:] And I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

But when ye come, and all the flow'rs are dying
If I am dead, as dead I well may be
You'll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an ave there for me.

And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me
And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be
For you will bend and tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me.
Track Name: Sermonette
I heard me a sermonette, have you heard it yet
With that soulful message that you won't soon forget
It tells about real true love, the kind people lost sight of
Through their sinful livin', and their scornin' Heaven above

It tells you to love one another because each one is your brother
Live right 'cause you know you gotta reap just what you sow

And so to have no regrets and to find what you're missin'
Bow your head and listen to this sermonette

It tells you to love one another, you know each one is your brother
Live right 'cause you know one day you gotta reap everything you sow

And so to have no regrets and to find what you're missin'
Come on along and listen to this sermonette
