Like a heart held close to the edge of a knife
One kiss from her lips turn my blood turn to ice
I tried to run by the light of the moon
I said I'll never be back, but I spoke too soon
Well, she made me dance and she made me scream
Did she give me some of that voodoo thing?
The voodoo thing, ooh, my voodoo thing
Growing up on the West Coast and with a father who insisted on an early blues education, a name that came up a little later in my childhood was Colin James: he even lived in our neighborhood for a few years, which was kind of rad. Voodoo Thing was one of my favorite tunes to dance to like a crazy person when it came out in the late 80s. But really, can you blame me? Voodoo Thing was my first introduction to reading everything I could get my hands on about voodoo culture and magic so I could find out how to get my "Voodoo Thing" on... ~HH
