Toe Tappers: Christina Aguilera ‘Something’s Got a Hold on Me’

Christina Aguilera can sing, there is no damn doubt about it. This opening number from the movie Burlesque for me set the tone for the entire movie. Something about the way her voice hits those notes get your toes to curl in the most pleasent way. The lyrics itself are a joyful expression of what I’m hoping will happen when I move back to India in a few days. I’m hoping all the negativity, heart break and depression will disappear the moment I step out the plane and smell the pungent aroma that is my home, Mumbai/ Pune.

Lyrics:

Oh oh, sometimes I get a good feeling, yeah
I get a feeling that I never, never, never, never had before, no no
And I just gotta tell you right now that I
I believe, I really do believe that

Something’s got a hold on me, yeah (oh, it must be love)
Oohoh, something’s got a hold on me right now, child (oh, it must be love)

Let me tell you now
I got a feeling, I feel so strange
Everything about me seems to have changed
Step by step, I got a brand new walk
I even sound sweeter when I talk

I said, oh, oh, oh, oh
I said baby
Oh, it must be love (you know it must be love)

Let me tell you know
Something’s got a hold on me, yeah (oh, it must be love)
Oohoh, something’s got a hold on me right now, child (oh, it must be love)

Let me tell you now
I never felt like this before
Something’s got a hold on me that won’t let go
I believe I’d die if I only could
I sure feel strange, but it sure feels good

I said, oh, oh, oh, oh
I said baby
Oh, it must be love (you know it must be love)

Let me tell you know
My heart feels heavy, my feet feel light
I shake all over, but I feel alright
I never felt like this before
Something’s got a hold on me that won’t let go
I never thought it could happen to me
Got me heavy without the misery
I never thought it could be this way
Love’s sure gonna put a hurting on me

I said, oh, oh, oh, oh
I said baby
Oh, it must be love (you know it must be love)

Yeah, he walks like love (you know he walks like love)
He talks like love (you know he talks like love)
Makes me feel alright (makes me feel alright)
In the middle of the night (in the middle of the night)

Na na la la (na na la la)
Na na la la (na na la la)
Ooh yeah yeah (oh oh oh)
Yeah ooh yeah oh (oh oh oh)
Hey, yeah yeah yeah, ah
