Frente!’s “Labour of Love”

Today I am going back to the original intent of Monday Music, which is to highlight a band or artist that I enjoy, but that most people have not heard of (or heard once and don’t remember). Today’s band is Frente!, who had a few “hits” back in the early-mid ’90s.

I don’t remember exactly how I found Frente!, but based on what I know of myself, I’m sure it had something to do with her voice (I have this “thing” for female British and Aussie accents), and I stuck around for the music…

Now like many bands from that time, they had some pretty cheesy pop songs (one which actually has a parody available on YouTube), but they also had some very good music, an example of which I hope you’ll enjoy.

Oh am I fooling you?
Do you fall for it all
Or do you just see right through?
Are you as cool as you believe?
Are you playing hard?
Are you waiting just to quietly clock my card?
Are you waiting for a moment to leave?

I dont know how I bent what you said
To what I believe you meant
I dont know anything at all
Im standing in the push and shove
And Im just within the rescue
Of the labour of your love
I cant do anything but fall
A-fall, a-fall-fall-fall
Why do I feel like I can never find you?
Why do I feel like Im the only survivor?
Why am I thinking of –
You and me and the labour of love?

One chance, one shot
Thats all anybody ever got
Newborn still warm
Naked in the rush hour
Dancing in my gutter
And if you want to find me
Call me, Ill be far from
The cars and guitars and
Everybody
Why do I feel like I can never find you?
Why do I feel like Im the only survivor?
Why am I thinking of –
You and me and the labour of love?

And I never knew before
But I feel like a child in a cold, cold war
So strong, so tough
Sitting in suburbia, waiting for the wind up
And I dont want to dance
I just want to jump from the prison of circumstance
Why am I thinking of –
You and me and the labour of love?
Why do I feel like I can never find you?
Why do I feel like Im the only survivor?
Why am I thinking of –
You and me and the labour of love?
