Ooh Is there a look in your eye? I guess I must be dreaming 'Cause I'd never thought about you in that way Have you heard all the talk? About the way I must be feeling But I know you don't believe in what they say Now I stop and think about it more Maybe now I'm not so sure? I think I heard a rumour that I'm falling in love with you, with you I know it's just a rumour but I think that it might come true, come true 'Cause I can't deny the feeling, like the start of something new But I think you heard a rumour that I love you All the time we're apart I'm a picture of confusion But I think about and miss you every day All the words, all the lies It adds to the illusion And I start to wonder if it's just a game we play What if there's more to this than meets the eye? Is this the spark that lights the fire? I think I heard a rumour that I'm falling in love with you, with you I know it's just a rumour but I think that it might come true, come true 'Cause I can't deny the feeling, like the start of something new But I think you heard a rumour that I love you

Hero 04:19
And there's a hero... And she's coming... Soon... I know... Sometime when I'm dreaming I feel you come my way Unlocking all the secrets And shining on the day I dream I'll never wake up And live inside my mind Looking to the future With the past now left behind 'Cause every promise needs a keeper Every journey needs a start Every story needs a hero Who can win the dreamer's heart Every answer needs a question Every ocean needs a shore Every story needs a hero One we've all been waiting for Hold on to this feeling I hear the voices say Waiting can last forever But when she comes she'll stay I dream she's moving closer There can't be far to go Before the hurt is over And the band can start the show 'Cause every promise needs a keeper Every journey needs a start Every story needs a hero Who can win the dreamer's heart Every answer needs a question Every ocean needs a shore Every story needs a hero And I'm waiting for her call And I'm waiting for her call I dream I'll never wake up And live inside my mind Looking to the future With the past now left behind 'Cause every promise needs a keeper Every journey needs a start Every story needs a hero Who can win the dreamer's heart Every answer needs a question Every ocean needs a shore Every story needs a hero One we've all been waiting for I'll be waiting…

Quand on est ensemble toute la nuit Nous dormons jusqu'au matin La main dans la main En dormant si tu as rêvé de moi Moi j'ai rêvé de toi Quand on est ensemble, le soleil vient Du bonheur dès le matin Dénouer nos mains Et très vite nous invite sous le ciel clair À sauter dans la mer Quand on est ensemble Comme elle est douce la plage Surtout à la fin du jour J'ai trouvé un coquillage Où l'on écoute l'amour Oh oui l'amour J'ai le coeur qui tremble De ces baisers Que tu as su me donner Au creux des rochers Et nos jeux Ne sont que rires d'enfants Qui résonnent longtemps Où vont les lavandes Bientôt la dernière voile Bientôt le dernier pêcheur Quand s'allument les étoiles Nous n'avons plus qu'un seul cœur Plus qu'un seul coeur Le soir se fait tendre Et doucement Nous reprenons le chemin Qui mène à demain À demain Qui tous les deux me conduit Au même paradis Quand on est ensemble Quand on est ensemble

Voy tejiendo esta mantilla Con seda de mis desvelos Te quiero porque te quiero Y no sé decir por qué Porque tú eres como el hierro Porque yo soy un imán Cierro los ojos un momento Y ese momento se va Todo el dinero del mundo No te compra un minuto más Que todo el dinero del mundo No te compra un minuto más Suerte es estar en el lugar y el momento adecuado Y nada es mejor para mí que estar a tu lado Nada es mejor para mí que estar a tu lado El día que no te veo Para mí no sale el sol Y si sale no me alumbra Como me alumbra tu amor Tengo miedo de tener miedo Por si un día tú te vas Mi cabeza es un campo de batalla Y sólo contigo estoy en paz Las cosas siempre llegan Cuando dejamos de buscar Que las cosas siempre nos llegan Cuando dejamos de buscar Suerte es estar en el lugar y el momento adecuado Y nada es mejor para mí que estar a tu lado Nada es mejor para mí que estar a tu lado

Are you really so hard? Are you really so hard in your heart? Are you really so hard? Are you really so hard in your heart? Here is my advice to you Think about all that you do If you don't like what you see You only have to tell me But I don't know what to do Why should I listen to you? If you could see what I see You wouldn't listen to me Are you really so hard? Are you really so hard in your heart? Are you really so hard? Are you really so hard in your heart? But I don't know what to do Why should I listen to you? If you could see what I see You wouldn't listen to me Are you really so hard? Are you really so hard in your heart? Are you really so hard? Are you really so hard in your heart? And when the sun shines down It shines upon our town And everybody says I want to, I want to But when the angels come round They'll stamp us into the ground So how can I say I want to grow some wings to fly away (I want to run away hey) Are you really so hard? Are you really so hard in your heart? Are you really so hard? Are you really so hard in your heart? Crush the flowers

Just a year ago, I saw you at the show You didn't catch my eye on first impressions There you were again, talking with your friends You didn't give me hope with your expressions But now you're standing right in front of me There's something different in the way I'm feeling Take a chance on the passing of time And give a second look Who knows what you'll find Leave the dark and step into the light 'Cause I believe in love at third sight When I look at you, I never really knew They say don't judge a book by its cover Anyone can change, thoughts can rearrange And so your view's replaced by another And now you're standing right in front of me There's something different in the way I'm feeling Take a chance on the passing of time And give a second look Who knows what you'll find Leave the dark and step into the light 'Cause I believe in love at third sight

In my time machine In my time machine In my time machine In my time machine Replay the highs with me Visit the wise with me Change what we already know Alter mistakes with me Witness our destiny Where would you like us to go? In my time machine In my time machine In my time machine In my time machine

Baby, won't you come dancing tonight, with me? 'Cause I can't get you out of my head, tell me Baby, could I go dancing tonight, with you? 'Cause I can't get you out of my head You can meet me at the discoteca We can be together under the lights I'll be waiting at the discoteca Hold my hand forever right through the night, tonight Baby, won't you come dancing tonight, with me? 'Cause I can't get you out of my head You can meet me at the discoteca We can be together under the lights I'll be waiting at the discoteca Hold my hand forever right through the night, tonight Baby, could I go dancing tonight, with you? 'Cause I can't get you out, can't get you out of my head (Can't get you out, can't get you out…)

Du har då aldrig trott på tårar Det passar inte för en karl Om man är över femton vårar Finns inga känslor kvar Kan du förstå två våta kinder De torkar lika snabbt igen Man rår ej för att tårar rinner När man har mist sin vän Jag vill ha en egen måne, som jag kan åka till Där jag kan glömma att du lämnat mig Jag kan sitta på min måne och göra vad jag vill Där stannar jag tills allting ordnat sig Du tror du vet hur allt ska vara Du vet när allting passar sig Utom när jag ska förklara Hur jag känner mig Du bryr dig inte om mig mera Och det har tagit mig så hårt Du kan väl aldrig acceptera Att någonting är svårt Jag vill ha en egen måne, som jag kan åka till Där jag kan glömma att du lämnat mig Jag kan sitta på min måne och göra vad jag vill Där stannar jag tills allting ordnat sig Jag vill ha en egen måne, jag kan åka till Där jag kan glömma att du lämnat mig Jag kan sitta på min måne och göra vad jag vill Där stannar jag till allting ordnat sig

Eu tenho uma historia pra te contar Eu tenho uma historia pra te contar Mas eu não vou contar agora Só vou contar quando chegar a hora Por favor não vá chorar Eu tenho uma tristeza pra te contar Eu tenho uma tristeza pra te contar Mas eu não vou contar agora Só vou contar quando romper a aurora Quando vale terminar Menina linda, não chore ainda Que a poesia, veio para dizer Menina amada é madrugada Acorda o dia, tenho o que dizer Eu tenho uma historia pra te contar Eu tenho uma historia pra te contar Mas eu não vou contar agora Só vou contar quando chegar a hora Por favor não vá chorar Que toda essa tristeza é não ter você Que toda essa tristeza é não ter você

I don't want no one I don't want no one else I don't want no one I don't want no one else They say that I'm too young To settle down - I should have some fun But they don't know about you and me When we get together it's like it's meant to be I could spend a lifetime with you But somehow that's not even enough 'Cause I don't want no one else but you Every time we touch, oh, what can I do? Wo-oh I don't want no one else but you You don't know how much I wanna be next to you They say I should look around They're other guys waiting to be found But they don't see what I see in you They're too blind to see the truth 'Cause when I look into your big blue eyes I know that I have made up my mind 'Cause I don't want no one else but you Every time we touch, oh, what can I do? Wo-oh I don't want no one else but you You don't know how much I wanna be next to you I don't want no one I don't want no one else I don't want no one I don't want no one else I don't want no one I don't want no one else I don't want no one I don't want no one else I could spend a lifetime with you But somehow that's not even enough 'Cause I don't want no one else but you Every time we touch, oh, what can I do? Wo-oh I don't want no one else but you You don't know how much I wanna be next to you 'Cause I don't want no one else but you Every time we touch, oh, what can I do? Wo-oh I don't want no one else but you You don't know how much I wanna be next to you

Safe 02:56
I heard you're seeing someone different I guess you felt a need to change? I know it's really not my business But when you hurt, I hurt, it's strange But I know we're safe And what we have will last forever I know we're safe And what we have will last forever, forever Saw you're looking for a job now Why do you have to move away? I didn't mean to upset you I should think about what I say But I know we're safe And what we have will last forever I know we're safe And what we have will last forever, forever You may not like what I do And you may hurt me too Me too Me too But I know we're safe And what we have will last forever I know we're safe And what we have will last forever I know we're safe And what we have will last forever I know we're safe And what we have will last forever, forever

A few weeks ago, we released that advance Single called “Hero”. Cristina Quesada is back on the record label scene with something new, and with a surprising new team. The thing is, Joe Moore (THE YEARNING, THE PERFECT KISS, Lia Pamina) has written, arranged and produced almost all of the songs on her second album, “Think I Heard A Rumour”. The album brings together Joe’s infinite love of music and Cristina Quesada’s freshness and sweetness, and the result is a collection of songs that need (and deserve) to be carefully and specifically commented on individually.

To start things off, we have the title track for the album, which puts all the cards on the table. “Think I Heard A Rumour” is a eurodisco hit, with a NEW ORDER bass and a SAINT ETIENNE chorus. Everyone will be playing it. It’s one of those songs that makes your heart beat faster right in the middle of the dance floor without knowing what it is you are falling in love with. Then comes “Hero” and the dance floor is still on fire. Unrepentant rhythms and dreamy melodies. “Hero” is an instant classic that moves between the PET SHOP BOYS’ most danceable hits, the Japanese pop of Tommy February6, the earliest recordings of THE SOUND OF ARROWS and ABBA’s catchiest melodies. The formula in the eighties seemed so simple and so effective… Why have so many people forgotten it?

And now another of this album’s great secret weapons is revealed: the covers. We already saw how amazing what Joe and Cristina did with LIO was on the advance Single. Now it’s France Gall’s turn, with her delicious “Quand On Est Ensemble”, which is put through the blender and reborn modernized among arpeggiators and synth-pop rhythms. As if KRAFTWERK had decided to write spacey anthems obsessed with the French chanson.

Now we have to stop for a second, because we have gotten to one of the songs that is not a cover and is not written by Joe Moore. “Estar A Tu Lado” was written by Ana Fernández-Villaverde (in other words, LA BIEN QUERIDA) specifically for Cristina. And you can tell. The vocal melodies, the lyrics… It all reminds us of her songs. “Estar A Tu Lado” is a tailor-made love song with vocals and arrangements that shine with a light of their very own. Ultimately, the conjunction of talents makes magic happen. Then we’re back to covers, and this time, and after that heartfelt declaration of love, Cristina and Andreas (ALPACA SPORTS) become one to revisit one of the Singles we at Elefant Records have listened to the most since its release in 1989. “Crush The Flowers” was the A-side of the first Single THE WAKE put out with Sarah Records after their time with the also legendary independent label, Factory. Here we have a certain J-Pop impulse (Joe Moore himself has recognized the Japanese PERFUME as an important influence when it came to making this album) and with the combination of Cristina’s and Andreas’ voices it comes back full of emotion and sweetness.

“Love At Third Sight” makes it clear that, for Elefant Records’ most prolific composer, this artistic marriage has given him the opportunity to create undisputable eurodisco hits, which benefit from Cristina’s voice and the necessary freshness and youthfulness that the melodies need. It’s incredible. BANANARAMA would have killed for a chorus like this. “Time Machine” is also a new song, that plays psychedelically with layers of vocals. Like “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” made with a base of synthesizers. There’s no track here, but there is a journey. And what a trip it is. We never dreamed of hearing Cristina Quesada play with vocals like this. “Dancing Tonight” is a powerful mix between “Words” by F.R. DAVID and “Don’t Cry Tonight” by SAVAGE, which ends up sounding like a production by COLLEGE.

By now it’s clear that “Think I Heard A Rumour” is an album with a lot of personality, even beyond its undisputable inspiration and punch. But there are still a lot of surprises to come. And taking a song from 1972 from the first album by the Swedish singer Ted Gärdestad called “Jag Vill Ha En Egen Måne” and taking it to another musical galaxy is an exercise that no words can describe. It goes beyond the love of music and musical fantasy. “Get Fun” is another vocal play full of imagination and ornamentations. For the more obtuse of us who don’t see the complicated interweaving of some pop songs (I mean, just because a song is as pop or direct as it may be, it doesn’t mean it is simple), here we have evidence of exactly what Joe Moore is capable of when he finds the right partner.

“Bailar Conmigo” is written by Teresa and Ibon, from SINGLE, from LE MANS, from AVENTURAS DE KIRLIAN, one of the most important songwriting couples in the history of Elefant. It’s difficult to figure out the origins here; our beloved companions have never been known for being especially predictable or classifiable. The result in the hands of Joe Moore is an exercise in highly addictive electronic bubblegum, sometimes bizarre, seductive, and above all, brilliant.

“Estorinha” is a song by the Brazillian singer Evinha which was released at the peak of the Tropicalism era, 1969. It is no secret that we are very passionate about Brazilian music here at Elefant, and Evinha, as a solo act or with her siblings, has always been our most important reference. Once again, there is barely a trace of the original song; it seems like we’re in 1982, when YAZOO released their first album.

To wrap things up, “No One Else But You” and “Safe” put the focus on this duo’s ability to create eurobeat anthems, with incredible choruses and melodies that make us believe in music again. “No One Else But You” seems like a classic from the end of the 80s, one of the first singles from Samantha Fox, Taylor Dayne or Kylie Minogue. “Safe” closes the album, combining the past and the future... Pop, house, jungle, future pop, the 80s and dream pop.

After all this we still have one last stop. What we need to look back and realize everything that has happened over the course of these 14 songs. It’s impossible to sum it up in a few words. What we can say is that this is about the musical EXPERIENCE full of nooks and crannies to be discovered, emotions to be released and songs and references we will never be able to forget (nor should we). This is a lesson about breaking stereotypes, prejudices, and should serve us to open even the most skeptical people’s eyes. That was music. And they called it a rumour.
