Hooters, The - Private Emotion Lyrics




Every endless night has a dawning day
Every darkest sky has a shining ray
And it shines on you baby can't you see
You're the only one who can shine for me

It's a private emotion that fills you tonight
And a silence falls between us as the shadows steal the light
And wherever you may find it wherever it may lead
Let your private emotion come to me

When your soul is tired and your heart is weak
Do you think of love as a one way street
Well it runs both ways, open up your eyes
Can't you see me here, how can you deny

It's a private emotion that fills you tonight
And a silence falls between us as the shadows steal the light
And wherever you may find it wherever it may lead
Let your private emotion come to me

Every endless night has a dawning day
Every darkest sky has a shining ray
It takes a lot to laugh as your tears go by
But you can find me here 'til your tears run dry

It's a private emotion... Come to me...

  7. grinishkin

    Every endless night has a dawning day
    Every darkest sky has a shining ray
    And it shines on you, baby, can't you see
    You're the only one who can shine for me

    It's a private emotion
    That fills you tonight
    And a silence falls between us
    As the shadows steal the light

    And wherever you may find it
    Wherever it may lead
    Let your private emotion come to me
    Come to me, come to me, come to me

    When your soul is tired and your heart is weak
    Do you think of love as a one way street?
    Well, it runs both ways, open up your eyes
    Can't you see me here, how can you deny

    It's a private emotion
    That fills you tonight
    And a silence falls between us
    As the shadows steal the light

    And wherever you may find it
    Wherever it may lead
    Let your private emotion come to me
    Come to me, come to me

    Every endless night has a dawning day
    Every darkest sky has a shining ray
    It takes a lot to laugh as your tears go by
    But you can find me here till your tears run dry

    Well, it's a private emotion
    That fills you tonight
    And a silence falls between us
    As the shadows steal the light

    And wherever you may find it
    Wherever it may lead
    Let your private emotion come to me

    Let your private emotion come to me
    Let your private emotion come to me
    Come to me, come to me

    Ricky Martin's version is much better, simply because he's a much better singer.

    Ден С

    this version is better . ANd not because its original . It`s the music . Martin is pop-shit

  10. Ryan Juliantara

    original and cover is almost as good for me.. just little different style...

  11. comscom

    I like this more than the covers!

  12. fidodido665

    Its amazing how many people have this song connected to strong memories.

  13. Genesis Salazar

    Todos estos 20 años pensé que esta canción era original de Ricky Martin!! Ahora me doy cuenta de que no! Ambas versiones son buenas.

  14. J D'wayen

    Wow. 2019. Just discovered this was the original. And I can hear the words clearly. And the words go straight to my heart. Now it's not just some song I'm going to play "in the background." Thanks, Hooters.

  15. Tho Tran

    I didn’t realise this version of the song. Only heard RM Spoiled both versions are beautiful

  16. youtube channel

    I just knew today that Ricky martin & meja covered this song. Jezz 19 years old i didnt realize it...

  17. Pedro Medeiros

    Ricky's version is much more sentimental than this one. The Hooters should actually pay a tribute to Ricky for making the original song "famous" :)

  18. Naivasha Nishanta

    Ricky Martin's is the best

  19. music music

    Ricky ruined it.

  20. 0000song0000

    Why is this song not on The Hooters official channel?

  21. Ryan - Food Consultant

    This is the original ones. 👍

  22. José Pérez

    Me gusta las dos versiones:la original y el Cover de Ricky & Meja

  23. Martín Carlos Recéndiz Sóuza

    I prefer Meja and Ricky Martin...
    Don't matter if this is the original.

  24. Fabian81

    Now I understand why this song is still my most favourite Ricky Martin recorded song. Thanks for this Hooters!

  25. Antonio Koc

    Marriage song & chicken wings🥂

  26. Maco Rodríguez

    Esta versión original me gustó más ... Que el que le remedo Ricky

  27. Marco Wagner

    The Original!!!

    Bernd Thiel

    Oh yes !

  28. FedeSum41

    The intro of The Killers - Mr. Brightside? nobody listened that?

    0000song0000

    But this song is at least 10 years older than Mr Brightside

    Dukan Ani

    It's the same beat, but slightly different notes.

    Man de Gaturiss

    Mrs. Brightside is better

    Nicolás Gómez

    Private emotion is better

    Notorious

    @Man de Gaturiss No

  29. Trine Langohr

    So... the intro also got covered by the Killers for "Mr Brightside", I guess...

  30. 1171karl

    Ha I've only just 'discovered' this version... Its good!

  31. Hadi Yazid

    The original insertee more originality and emotions while Ricky's version is more commercial and modern yet still full with emotion.

  32. Max Tomsby

    So much talk about the Ricky Martin version of this song. If I'm not mistaking it's in fact Hyman and Bazilian playing most instruments on that one too :)

  33. MELOMANO DRIVER

    CONGRATS GREAT SONG! @melomanodriver

  34. MARIA NOEL Fagundez

    A poem, I love this version.

  35. Seunghyun Kim

    wow it is better than Ricky martin's one.

    Chuck Taylor

    That's because they wrote the song and he did a remake.

    diamond-like precision

    Ricky's soooo much better!

    Benjamin Mankowski

    Whoever did the background vocal on Ricky's version screwed it up.

  36. exgordote

    prefiero a MEJA & RICKY MARTIN

    Adrian Paez

    jaja de pana

  37. mariorossiexcite

    Ricky Martin covered this in 2000, that's a fact.
    Now everybody let's listen to the intro of 'One step up' by Bruce Springsteen(1987) :-D

  38. Jo Moody

    Shit i didnt Know about the.original

  39. The Rarest Gamer

    It looks like Private Emotion of Ricky Martin... !!!!

    Chuck Taylor

    The Hooters fans around the world knows. Never knew RM did this song.

    Stine Lykke Olsen

    The Hooters covered the song too. It is originally a Tina Turner song

    Jean Franco Caringi

    JAJAJAJA el coño de su madre me hiciste el día JAJAJAJAJAJAJAJA

    diamond-like precision

    @Nostromo lol!

    diamond-like precision

    @Stine Lykke Olsen no it isnt! do u mean 'private dancer'? Lolol

  40. Radenska512

    Liked both versions. The RM one and this one.

    Less ML

    the voice is so similar too

  41. Miguel Quiniao

    Loved it

  42. Алексей Рыбин

    привет рикки

  43. marvelboy74

    Clearly the Ricky Martin version is more produced than this version.  Some people are going to prefer that, others not.  What I like about Ricky's version is the prominence of Meja's vocals starting on the 2nd verse.  Meja is a much stronger vocalist than Mindy.  The RM version seems to have a bit more of a climax than the Hooters version as well.  I can respect this version, but the RM obviously was more of a winning formula.

    Nostromo

    +marvelboy74 this version is better.

    Kevin Silva

    Agree. The Ricky Martin version's music video is nostalgic and it matches the concept of the song (the frozen hotel slowly melting until it is razed by fire representing a person from being cold-hearted to being emotional)

    Woon Fa Seng

    both are good

    Roberto Wong

    U mis 2 b kiddin

  44. ersanchez

    It was dedicated to Cyndi Lauper!!!

    jpat gon

    FUCK THAT OLD UGLY BITCH.

    RastaSaiyaman

    What do you know her personally or what is going on here?

  45. ersanchez

    Is Cyndi Lauper in the background?

    reirastu

    yeap, and is Cyndi´s band too

    Carlos

    I think Cyndi Lauper was only the inspiration for Rob Hyman to compose the song....

  46. Bruce Coffman

    Love the song and your photographs are beautiful.

  47. Sachse009

    Yes, the original!!

  48. Nostromo

    Ricky almost ruined the song. The original one is the best

    Manuel Sáez

    Nos tromo wtf are you talking about. Ricky Martin and Meja's version is awesome, just like the original

  49. Damian Enriquez

    THE H(.)(.)TERS!! ye

  50. roglo06

    Like you, I grew up with the Ricky Martin version. I absolutely had no idea this song was a cover. However, although both versions are great, I must say that Ricky's version is better due to the fact that it sounds fuller and more emotive. I'm Latino, so I grew up hearing Ricky my entire life. :)

    Jo Moody

    At,last someone who thinks like me in this

  51. BeatUp999

    My most favorite band and one of the favorite song !!

  52. mariorossiexcite

    The intro is very similar to 'One step up' by Bruce Springsteen.

  53. Ricky May Get well soon

    @galleif I think that's why they were covered by Ricky Martin. He seems to have given them credit.

  54. Akira Otanashi

    i never knew that Private Emotion by Ricky Martin was a cover. They're both wonderful. I prefer Ricky's, probably cause i grew up with it. i feel like his sounds fuller too. but, this way is wonderful too. i love this song. it's so beautiful.

  55. 666DoctorDarkness666

    @j4wn But the drumsound of The Hooters is much more authentic and fuller (my opinion as drummer).

  56. witawillie

    This is the Shit!!!

  57. Isabelle S

    I LoVe It <3

  58. Eurydice

    wow. very nice..

  59. TVholub

    Peerless! For me it sounds like it was newer than the Ricky Martin & Meja cover - not from 2000 and all the more 1993.

  60. MrSuperheli

    yo...the hooters.......many thanks....one of the best

  61. MatteJz

    "Hooters ordinary lives" är en goding det oxå....

    *****"RECOMENDATION"*****

  62. Valerie Blue

    yo crei q esta cancion era de ricky martin
    mira vos

  63. Akash-sama

    jeez !!! didnt know this version before...i knew the Ricky Martin version...bt when i researchd on it on wiki...i found the original is by The Hooters n i came here 2 check it out...n i must say it's better :D

  64. MrVuJaDe

    didnt know they made gay music too damn

  65. my name is human

    the chorus sounds like Eagles Hotel California

    Damian

    dude 7 years after i reply to you yes totally like hotel california i found it thanks to that song xD

    Chuck Taylor

    The Hooters did a slow version of the Eagles Boys of Summer that makes the pain of that lost love hit hard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsCD1Pybmuk

  66. scottishbabe2106

    wow, this is the first time ive heard this song.....its so amazing......ive got so many emotions running through me right now :)

  67. Peter L

    Why must everything be misconstrued and twisted toward gay's?

    Al M.

    Why everything has to be interpreted from the straighties POV? The song doesn't even mention the gender of the person that it was wrote about. You sound ridiculous.

  68. fg fg

    The real thing! I didn't know - I thought this song was written by/for Ricky Martin.
    I wonder if it's describing an omosexual relationship (private emotion - love runs both ways) ?

    diamond-like precision

    Hmm somethin to think about for u there lolol

  69. pics333

    very nice ..love it thanx

  70. grostpc

    I'm Ricky Martin Fan, I didn't know that was a cover :o It's good but I prefer Ricky's Version. I came from wikipedia! haha

  71. Zhukov Héroe

    Is nice to know the original version.
    More genuine feeling, obviously

  72. Zhukov Héroe

    Copied and pasted from wikipedia (Hehe!)

  73. Dr. Timur Abdullayev

    Ну во не хуя я в музыке не знаю выходит - каждый день что то новое!!! Вот группу познал а оказалось сколько песенок хороших понаписали!!!! Вся современная поппса жрет старые запасы - что будет когда все кончитсяя?!!!

  74. 76special

    I like both versions, gosh, all of u are Ricky haters.

    Calefoink Rogers

    No dude, I think Ricky's version is better actually.

  75. junomistic

    I totally agree. It´s a beautiful song....

  76. Esko Heinonen

    song was written by Eric Bazilian and Rob Hyman of the American rock band The Hooters, who recorded it for their 1993 album, Out of Body.

  77. Vennegoor10

    Ricky did a good job with this song, but the Hooters are fantastic song writers and very under-appreciated.

  78. Antony McHiggens

    it is much better than rickys version.

  79. coeji

    agree never liked rickys version but this is just beautiful

  80. galleif

    making a cover of a song is not hard. i think Ricky destroyed a truly masterpiece of a song. to write something like this is true poetry!!!

  81. dylz

    i never knew ricky martin's was a cover version until now... so glad i finally found the original version. i love it, it's great!

  82. Vennegoor10

    Rare form of cancer.

  83. Joe Imhof

    i hadnt heard that, what happened?

  84. niuxen

    well what can i do that i like the ricky martin's version better. still this one is awesome also.

  85. rociogac

    As a Hooters big fan for more than 20 years I have loved this song since they recorded it back in 1993, the answer is simple, Ricky Martin decided to record it and make it a hit because its BEAUTIFUL and he really loved it too.

    Afzal Shaikh

    somos tocayas

    Ден С

    respect to you !

  86. j4wn

    Both versions of this song are great in their own right. The Ricky vesion has a "fuller" sound, but let's not forget who wrote the song in order for the Ricky version to exist. Logic and common sense prevail once again.

  87. galleif

    The Hooters are straight out genius. All their songs are so down to earth. And the lyrics are just brilliant. This band is one of those many that deserve more credit then they got.

  88. Vennegoor10

    Just heard recently Mindy died a couple of years back. Such a tragedy, she was great. :-(

  89. German Ferreira

    Gracias Ricky Martin por permitirme llegar a esta canción

  90. sylvia1971de

    No, this is Mindy Jostyn, a member of The Hooters at that time.

  91. panboy18

    Is that Cyndi Lauper doing second voice in the end?

  92. Highcoaster75

    You SHOULD get it!
    It's out there somewhere-waiting for you...

    =)

  93. 19WANKER67

    This song is a sacrilege! Losers like Ricky Martin should keep their f....g hands of masterworks like these!
    Cindy in the background is the cherry upon the cream on top!

  94. Highcoaster75

    Thanx! =)

  95. Pierre Linderoth

    Great song actually didn't know of this song until today.
    All those yaers i've thought that Ricky Martin's & Meja's Version was the original.
    Well what do you know.
    The hooters should have more cred for this song.

  96. Low Hun Ngee

    One of the most underrated original hit and fantastic instrumental sound.

    Yes Ricky the copycat can go home.

    Salute to the original creator

  97. ScottJoseph08

    Beautiful, Maria!!

  98. encinitasmel

    i love it, thanks "K"!!

  99. arkgunslinger

    you were right, JB Excellent video and song!
