Song of the Day #3,244: ‘Warm Blood’ – Carly Rae Jepsen vs. Elvis Costello

The latest Montauk Madness Round One matchup features a prime contender for the whole title (Elvis Costello) vs. a newcomer with only a couple of albums under her belt (Carly Rae Jepsen). Not exactly a fair fight.

But Jepsen is a talent, no question. She might not be Rocky Balboa taking Apollo Creed to 15 rounds and losing by judge’s decision, but Costello is definitely in the other corner having taken a solid shot to the eye, nodding her way and saying “You have great things ahead of you, kid.”

[Verse 1]
I’ve got a cavern of secrets
None of them are for you
Even if you wanted to keep them
Where would you find the room?
Let down my guard tonight
I just don’t care anymore
I’ve told a hundred lies
But I don’t wanna tell you any at all

[Pre-Chorus]
And I can not control it
The way you’re making me feel
And you have got me going
Spinning in circles ’round your warm blood

[Chorus]
Warm blood feels good
I can’t control it anymore
Sweet one, you should stop me there, but I keep on talking
I would throw in the towel for you, boy
Cause you lift me up and catch me when I’m falling for you

[Verse 2]
I saw myself tonight
Caught my reflection in the mirror
My hands and heart were tied
But I was scared of almost nothing at all

[Pre-Chorus]
And I can not control it
The way you’re making me feel
And you have got me going
Spinning in circles ’round your warm blood

[Chorus]
Warm blood feels good
I can’t control it anymore
Sweet one, you should stop me there, but I keep on talking
I would throw in the towel for you, boy
Cause you lift me up and catch me when I’m falling for you

[Bridge]
Warm blood, underneath my skin
Warm blood, my heart is pumping
Warm blood, underneath my skin
Warm blood, my heart is pumping

[Chorus]
Warm blood feels good
I can’t control it anymore
Sweet one, you should stop me there, but I keep on talking
I would throw in the towel for you, boy
Cause you lift me up and catch me when I’m falling for you
You catch me when I’m falling for you
You catch me when I’m falling
Warm blood feels good
I can’t control it anymore
Sweet one, you should stop me there, but I keep on talking
I would throw in the towel for you, boy
Cause you lift me up and catch me when I’m falling for you

[Bridge]
Warm blood, underneath my skin
Warm blood, my heart is pumping
Warm blood, underneath my skin
Warm blood, my heart is pumping

    Well, to my dismay, Jepsen will be getting my daughter’s vote, but I expect Elvis will otherwise sail into the next round and beyond.

    • Madison says:

      I think you should be more concerned about Daniel’s vote :p but no, I won’t be the one allowing Jepsen to get her punches in. I love her and it makes me sad to see her leave in round one, but I’m not crazy.

  2. The Cool Guy (Daniel) says:

    This has been one of the most difficult decisions ever. However, I have to give it to the legend here, Elvis Costello. He helped define punk music and has terrific music in almost every genre. In the end, though Carly Rae Jepsen does have quite the career ahead of her and I do think she could hold her own against many others in this competition, this was too harsh an opponent to pin her up against in the first round.

  3. Amy says:

    As you say in your initial post, Elvis would be on the short list for the whole contest, so, no, not exactly a fair fight. Still, I find Carly Rae Jepsen’s songs to be beyond infectious.

  4. Clay says:

    I think we’re all in agreement on this one. An unfortunate matchup for a great young talent.
