What Song Was That?

One Thing Leads to Another - The Fixx

Every day or so JACK-fm gets a call or three asking “What Song Was That?”  Instead of going on the air and wasting your time with a big long shpeal about it, I thought I'd waste your internet time.  Today at 11am, we played this song...

One Thing Leads to Another – The Fixx

From the 1983 album, Reach the Beach, One Thing Leads to Another was The Fixx’s biggest song to date.  These British new wavers were a (excuse the pun) a fixture in the MTV era, and had more songs like Red Skies, Stand or Fall, Saved By Zero, We Are Ourselves, and Deeper and Deeper.  “One Thing” was featured on the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City video game recently.  Oh, and good news...they are touring again!  So, the next time someone says to you, “What song was that?.....now you know.

One Thing Leads to Another Lyrics from eLyrics

The deception with tact
just what are you trying to say?
You've got a blank face which irritates
Communicate, pull out your party piece

You see dimensions in two
State your case with black or white
But when one little cross
leads to shots, grit your teeth
You run for cover so discreet
why don't they

Do what they say, say what you mean
One thing leads to another
You told me something wrong
I know I listen too long
But then one thing leads to another

The impression that you sell
Passes in and out like a scent
But the long face that you see
comes from living close
to your fears
If this is up then I'm up
but you're running out of sight
You've seen your name on the walls
And when one little bump
leads to shock miss a beat
You run for cover and there's heat
why don't they

Do what they say, say what they mean
One thing leads to another
You told me something wrong
I know I listen too long
But then one thing leads to another
Yeah yeah yeah

One thing (one thing)
leads to another

Then it's easy to believe
Somebody's been lying to me
But when the wrong word
goes in the right ear
I know why you've been lying to me
It's getting rough, off the cuff
I've got to say enough's enough
Bigger the harder he falls
But when the wrong antidote
is like a bulge on the throat
You run for cover in the heat
why don't they

Do what they say, say what they mean
One thing leads to another
You told me something wrong,
I know I listen too long
But then one thing leads to another
One thing leads to another
Yeah yeah

One thing (one thing)
leads to another
One thing (one thing)
leads to another (another)

(repeat to fade)
