about

COLA JET SET is one of Elefant label’s national groups that are creating the greatest legion of fans in the Anglo-Saxon public, as anyone could see in their recent shows in the UK. That’s why, as a special present to their English fans, they are releasing a single with some of their most well-known songs translated into English, as well as a few covers of foreign groups. The band from Barcelona with a constantly growing roster of band members, which currently includes Ana (voice), Felipe (guitars), Ester and Ruth (backing vocals), Dani (bass), Alicia (voice and guitar), Joan (drums) and Manel (keyboards), gives a different nuance to their music with English phonemes. We can rediscover “En Esta Pista Ya No Se Puede Bailar” under the new title, “The Land Where We Can Dance Forever”. They maintain their highly danceable disco-pop spirit and their marvellous arrangements, somewhere between THE JACKSON 5 and THE SHANGRILA’S. And there’s also “El Sueño De Mi Vida”, this time “The Dream of My Life”, which, in this format, could be considered one of the hits from THE SCHOOL’s discography or one of THE PIPETTES’ first singles.

But there are also huge new things for the group’s followers, because this single includes two marvellous, previously unreleased covers, from two of our favorite groups. On one hand, “Candy”, by THE MAGNETIC FIELDS, which is revisited under a sixties prism, with a twelve-string guitar and the precious play of voices flooded with emotion for every second of the song, turning a song that we had previously associated with its original author into something that COLA JET SET created themselves. On the other hand, they released a version in Spanish of MY BLOODY VALENTINE’s “Moon Song on their first single, “Cosas Que No Se Olvidan”, which they have now rerecorded in its original language, leaving it like a luminous, addictive, sunshine pop delicacy.

Sometimes it’s interesting how something as simple as the language the song is being sung in can make such a difference in how the song turns out. And with “Lesson One: Listen & Repeat” we have rediscovered a new COLA JET SET, just as catchy, with the same pop spirit, but somehow different. We don’t know which we should keep. But, do we really have to choose?

Track Name: Candy
Candy, it's been really nice, but I've gotta go
Cause I can't be the part of your life you don't wanna know

...And I can't keep lying all the time
And I know you'll find a better one
They're all too easy to find
And I'll just go away somewhere and slowly lose my mind

Candy, they called you a baby, they called you a whore
And I can't see the light at the end for you anymore

...And I can't keep lying all the time
And I know you'll find a better one
They're all too easy to find
And I'll just go away somewhere and slowly lose my mind

Candy, I can't be the one you want me to be
Maybe it was only with you that I could be me

...And I can't keep lying all the time
And I know you'll find a better one
They're all too easy to find
And I'll just go away somewhere and slowly lose my mind

I'll just go away somewhere and slowly lose my mind
Track Name: The Land Where We Can Dance Forever
Well I see you move across the dance floor
Oh but maybe I could dance with you another day
Yes I know you're more than I could ask for
But I have to say goodbye and move another way

Cos' the music that they play here
Doesn't work for me
And I've a better place
Where I would rather be
Take my hand we'll make a stand
Here in the land where we can dance forever

Yes I see you move across the dance floor
But there's something in my heart that makes a better beat
I don't know how long your song will last for
But I know that when its gone my life will be complete

Cos' the music that they play here
Doesn't work for me
And I've a better place
Where I would rather be
Take my hand we'll make a stand
Here in the land where we can dance forever

DJ show me a new way with everything you play
DJ this is a new day I need the sound of something sweet

There's something in my heart that makes a better beat
And somewhere in the world they're dancing in the street

Come and set the music free, take another chance
Come along and see where everyone can dance

Cos' the music that they play here
Doesn't work for me
And I've a better place
Where I would rather be
Take my hand we'll make a stand
Here in the land where we can dance forever
Track Name: The Dream Of My Life
Yes I dreamed about conquering
The unexplored and everything
Still I don't know of a place I could ever live
Yes I dreamed
I would find a cure
A magic potion to make me pure
Still only coughing and sneezing is all I give

But the only dream of my life
Was someone like you
Yes I dreamed that when I found you
It would come true
I've got to make you see
That you can be
The only dream of my life

Yes I dreamed there would be a day
A special love would come my way
Someone to feel the same way I want to feel
Yes I dreamed and here you are
Like a wish upon a star
Tell me it isn't a dream, tell me you are real

But the only dream of my life
Was someone like you
Yes I dreamed that when I found you
It would come true
I've got to make you see
That you can be
The only dream of my life

Once I dreamed, yes i dreamed
Now you're here every morning and every night

Cos' the only dream of my life
Was someone like you
Yes I dreamed that when I found you
It would come true
I've got to make you see
That you can be
The only dream of my life
Track Name: Moon Song
Hold me close
I hate you the most
When you’re the only one
Never could forgotten one

I can hear you dear
I wish
That I was never born
When you are the only one

When I'm with you
I don't know what to do
Don't come back soon
I don't want you to
When you are the only one

Hold my hand
But understand
You are the hated one
And you are the only one

If they could see
What you have done to me
You will not be
The only one
Now you’ll be the forgotten one

You can look
And you can touch
That's why it's never fun
When you are the only one

You come back soon
Breaking up the room
And soon you'll be
The forgotten one
And to her the only one
Never fun when you are the only one
Hated one and you are the only one
Only one
Now you'll be the forgotten one
