I was very happy when I found the reissue of the Walking Into Sunshine 12″ by UK group Central Line in New York. The 1981 hit has a special Larry Levan mix on the A-side.
The song was later sampled by LL Cool J for Jingling Baby (watch his party video, go ahead, baby).
Yesterday was wonderful weather in Toronto and I sang the lyrics all around town, today the rain is back. What did I do wrong?
Central Line – Walking Into Sunhsine (Larry Levan Mix)
Too much rainy days, rainy days
Found so much lazy ways, lazy ways
I’ve got to get away, oooh, baby
This kind of life is not for me
I don’t want a fuss, want a fight
I’m checkin’ in to book my early flight
I’ve got to get away to see what’s right for me
Walking by the sea (Go walking by the sea)
That’s when I’ll be free (Don’t want to hurry me)
I can do as I please when my mind is at ease
And I won’t be worried at all
I need a holiday to get away from the rush
I got to get away from the rush
Off the week if gold is cheap
I hop and fly away where the sun always shines
Eight days a week
‘Cause there’ll be sunshine
Yes, I’ll be walking into sunshine (Sunshine)
Give me the sun (Sunshine)
So all my rainy days will all be gone
