Rick Springfield - Under The Milky Way Lyrics




Sometimes when this place gets kind of empty
Sound of their breath fades with the light
I think about loveless fascination
Under the Milky Way tonight

Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find

And it's something quite peculiar
Something that's shimmering and white
Leads you here despite your destination
Under the Milky Way tonight

Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find

Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find

Lower the curtain down in Memphis
Lower the curtain down all right
I got no time for private consultation
Under the Milky Way tonight

Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find

Under the Milky Way tonight
Under the Milky Way tonight
Under the Milky Way tonight

    Rick I'd love to hear you do more covers maybe psychodelic furs, depeche mode, or even the cure. You got the curiosity peaked.. I wanna hear more lol.

  11. andyinoregon

    Happy 69th birthday, Rick! And thanks for a great cover of a great song by your fellow Australians The Church.

  12. Christina Streicher

    I read a comment that said he Americanized it. How? Sounds like he stuck real close to the original just tweaked it a bit is all. Piss off! It's all Apple's in my opinion.

  13. Christina Streicher

    Added this version to my playlist lol. Idk it's a great fuckin version...

  14. Richard Albert Henderson

    Nice one Rick!

  15. Christina Streicher

    I keep coming back to hear this version. I like it so much better.

  16. Jimmy The Clown

    Very cool Guy ❤❤

  17. Christina Streicher

    Holy shit! I loved the church's version but Ricks has officially taken over. I'm loving some of these covers!!!

  18. Maneka Kapoor

  19. Maneka Kapoor

    the only thing better than this would be Iain Glen playing this for me and playing the bagpipe in the middle eight.

  20. smokiebird06

    It takes balls to cover ANY song, and Springfield did an excellent job with this.

  21. Kayla Schulz

    Until she broke up with him

  22. Kayla Schulz

    Was her fiance

  23. Kayla Schulz

    Which she's laughing

  24. Kayla Schulz

    Ricky from Springfield was her ex-boyfriend

  25. D P

    Great. ..

  26. Frank Philpott

    In a blokish way, I LOVE Rick and The Church.

  27. Wayde Miller

    It's all good

  28. Brad Pagan

    I'm going to have to agree rami. I've heard a dozen covers of this great Church tune and this is near the top. Good job Rick!

  29. rami pajami

    Surprisingly good cover

  30. Blue Shades

    it's a little low for his voice...

  31. Giovani Rodrigues

    isso é bom!

  32. TrapDaddy65

    I liked the whole thing, but I LOVE it from 3:44 to the end. There's some great magic going on there.

  33. Kohntarkosz

    Jimmy Little is a legendary Australian singer who passed away earlier this year. Some years back, he did a very good version of Under The Milky Way, which I thought was better than this one.

  34. hirskdubbi

    who the fuck is jimmy little

    Frank Philpott

    Google?

  35. Nigelxman

    Sounds pretty Americanized to me.

  36. Anita Randall-Packer

    Yes he was, he was also on some soap opera back in the day.

    martha johnson

    yes of course played a hunky doctor

  37. Kohntarkosz

    This is a little too similar to the original version. It's not bad, but it's not particularly original either. I like the Jimmy Little recording better.

  38. 56music

    Like the way he has song it in a low register, shows respect for the song, he could have "americanised" it but he resisted = good cover

  39. darkmike333

    Great cover of an excellent song by an outstanding musical talent. To hell with the haters and naysayers.

  40. john hannan

    rick does this justice, the church are such a underated band

  41. cubba65

    Good job Rick, I'm surprised and actually impressed.

  42. Beethoveniac

    Meh......................beats the hell outta the Kill Hannah version at least. Still nowhere near the caliber of the original, though.

  43. jfrockon

    Pretty faithful to the original....

    Mortuus Rationem

    Not even close.

  44. ScottDouglasMaine

    OK, that was painful.

  45. Julio Carlos

    buen cover

  46. themetalchef

    Rick Springfield covering a classic 80's song so far apart from his own style? HE NAILED IT. This is the best cover of this song to ever grace the airways. WOW! KUDOS to you. Never would ahve thought that Jessie's Girl would be so dark. Keep it up..

  47. Bo Blair

    wow
    NICE cover

  48. WillieWeirdie

    am also a fan of The Church for a long long time and I find that this is a really good cover.

  49. gonzax

    great cover, I love it

  50. shanie

    As a longtime fan of The Church, I have to say that this is the best cover of this song that I've heard so far. I was surprised when Rick covered this song because it's not the type of music that I thought he would listen to, but it turns out that he really likes The Church, not just this song.

  51. ed bundy

    Not bad
