FCS Daily Music Video – ‘Ai No Corrida’ Quincy Jones (1981)


Quincy Delight Jones Jr. (born March 14, 1933) is an American record producer, musician, songwriter, composer, arranger, and film and television producer. His career spans 70 years in the entertainment industry with a record of 80 Grammy Award nominations, 28 Grammys, and a Grammy Legend Award in 1992.

“Corrida” is Spanish for bullfight, but the meaning of the title roughly translates to “don’t run away.”

Lyrics below

I hold you, I touch you
In a maze can't find my way
I think you, I drink you
I'm being served you on a tray
You see girl
That's what I go through every day
Is this the way it should feel?

Pinch me, I'm dreaming
But if it is don't let me know
I'm drowning, don't save me
It's just the way I'd like to go
You see girl
You thrill me, half kill me
That's what you do...

Ai no corrida, that's where I am
You send me there
You dream is my command
Ai no corrida, I find myself
No other thought
Just you and nothing else
You and nothing else

Before my heart saw you
Each day was just another day
Night, the lonely interlude
Just came, then blew away
You know girl
Everything was come what may
Until you fell in my life

This spell I'm under
Has caught me, I'm in a daze
Your lightning and thunder
Sets my poor heart ablaze
You see girl
You thrill me, half kill me
That's what you do

Ai no corrida, that's where I am
You send me there
You dream is my command
Ai no corrida, I find myself
No other thought
Just you and nothing else
You and nothing else

Ai no corrida, that's where I am
You send me there
You dream is my command
Ai no corrida, I find myself
No other thought
Just you and nothing else
You and nothing else

Ai no corrida, that's where I am
You send me there
You dream is my command
Ai no corrida, I find myself
No other thought
Just you and nothing else
You and nothing else

I hold you, I touch you
In a maze can't find my way
I think you, I drink you
I'm being served you on a tray
You see girl
That's what I go through every day
Is this the way it should feel?

Pinch me, I'm dreaming
But if it is don't let me know
I'm drowning, don't save me
It's just the way I'd like to go
You see girl
You thrill me, half kill me
That's what you do...

Ai no corrida, that's where I am
You send me there
You dream is my command
Ai no corrida, I find myself
No other thought
Just you and nothing else
You and nothing else...
