Archant

It can be embarrassing at a festival if, mid-song, you lose your groove and forget the lyrics.

But never fear - we’ve got that sorted. It will never happen while jamming to Sophie Ellis-Bextor at St Albans’ Meraki Festival because we’ve compiled all her greatest hits in one easy list.

Listen to the clips to remind yourself of the melody too:

Take Me Home

(Sophie Ellis-Bextor/ Michelle Aller/ Bob Esty)

Take me home, take me home

I know another place to be

Take me home, take me home

You deserve a girl like me

Come on I know somewhere

You can unwind

We can just disappear

Now’s the time

Take me home, take me home

Only fair I get my way

Take me home, take me home

Oh it’s going to happen anyway

I know what’s good for you

Don’t pass me by

I will look after you

You’ll be fine

I’m in heaven I’ll show you heaven it’s so much heaven

Let’s make a move

Lets leave this world behind

I know you approve by the look in your eyes

I’m in heaven I’ll show you heaven It’s so much heaven

Take me home take me home

I will show you where to walk

Take me home take me home

Baby let the people talk

we’ll get away from here

I’m reading your mind

We can just disappear

Now’s the time

I’m in heaven, I’ll show you heaven take me home

Oh, take me home

Oh, take me home

In this moment one night with you

All alone with nothing to loose

Let’s make a move

Let’s leave this world behind

I know you approve by the look in your eyes

I’m in heaven I’ll show you heaven it’s so much heaven

Take me home, take me home

Now’s the time to follow me

Take me home

Come and live what ought to be

Take me home take me home

Move This Mountain

(Sophie Ellis-Bextor/ Steven James/ Ben Hillier)

What do you want from me

I stand before you no attempt to leave

I’m too tired to disagree

I stand before you no chance I’ll believe this warning

Oh do you know

I would have done anything for you

Take this chance I won’t repeat this

I can do anything that’s put beside of you

And I can move any mountains that you make

I’ll lift you up and my back will never break

And I can move this mountain

Come and take the rest of me

I never thought I wouldn’t want you near

This is all I’ll ever be

I understand you

Look around to see this dawning

Oh, does it show

I wanted to catch you falling

Oh, do you know

I would have done anything for you

Take this chance I won’t repeat this

I can do anything that’s put beside of you

And I can move any mountains that you make

I’ll lift you up and my back will never break

And I can move this mountain

Murder on the Dancefloor

(Gregg Alexander/ Sophie Ellis-Bextor)

It’s murder on the dancefloor

But you better not kill the groove

Dj, gonna burn this goddamn house right down

Oh, I know I know I know I know I know I know

About your kind

And so and so and so and so and so

I’ll have to play

If you think you’re getting away

I will prove you wrong

I’ll take you all the way

Boy, just come along

Hear me when I say

Hey, It’s murder on the dancefloor

But you better not kill the groove

It’s murder on the dancefloor

But you better not steal the moves

Dj, gonna burn this goddamn house right down

Oh I know I know I know I know I know I know

That maybe others

And so and so and so and so and so and so

You’ll just have to pray

If you think you’ll get away

I will prove you wrong

I’ll take you all away

Stay another song

I’ll blow you all away

Hey, It’s murder on the dancefloor

But you better not kill the groove

Murder on the dancefloor

But you better not steal the moves

DJ, gonna turn this house around somehow

Murder on the dancefloor

But you better not kill the groove

Hey, hey

Murder on the dancefloor

But you better not steal the moves

Dj, gonna burn this goddamn house right down

Music Gets The Best of Me

(Sophie Ellis-Bextor/ Matt Rowe / Gregg Alexander)

Music gets the best of me

But guess who gets the rest of me

And there’s no need for jealousy

Music gets the best of me

I’ve got to tell you something

You’re not my first ever love

Men come and go I’ve noticed

But my first love’s going strong

He swept me off my feet strong

With melody and simple beat strong

A touch and I feel complete

Music is my love you see

Yeah

Music gets the best of me

But guess who gets the rest of me

And there’s no need for jealousy

Music gets the best of me

Without the beat I’m nothing

Without a song in my heart

I’d be a different girlfriend

But we’re all here so let’s start

The things her says are always true start

He’s never gonna change his tune start

And though you’re still the boy me

Music is my life you see

Music gets the best of me

But guess who gets the rest of me

And there’s no need for jealousy

Music gets the best of me

If someone held you with a gun

You know I’d make you number one

I need you both to get along

Music gets the best of me

Oh my baby

You know you make me smile

But it’s the music that’s really driving me wild

I can’t help it baby

Come on

Come on

Come on

Music gets the best of me

But guess who gets the rest of me

And there’s no need for jealousy

Music gets the best of me

If someone held you with a gun

You know I’d make you number one

I need you both to get along

Music gets the best of me

Music gets the best of me

I Won’t Change You

(Sophie Ellis Bextor/ Gregg Alexander/ Matthew Rowbottom)

I used to change my accent, change my stance

My phone number, the way I dance

Some people change lovers like they change their sheets

But I won’t change you honey, you’re for keeps

I used to think I had to change the way I am

To feel better, to get a man

But once I stopped trying I fell for you

You fell for me so I’ll stay the same for you

Oh yeah I know that I’m not perfect baby

Oh yeah it’s no reason to go crazy

Oh yeah boy you can always count on me

For better or for worse I will always put you first

Now that I have found you

You’ve changed my life

Cos you’re the one who showed me

I have everything right

We’re never gonna differ cos we know it’s true

So don’t change me and I won’t change you

I used to change my style like I changed my mind

I tried to change a tyre but I’m not that way inclined

Tried to change my figure my diet too

I’ll still change my underwear if that’s O.K with you

But after seeing you I know that here is best

Oh yeah the world can sometimes make you feel bad

Oh yeah but don’t forget the things you have

Oh yeah boy you can always count on me

In sickness and in health baby always be yourself

Catch You

(Gregory Kurstin/ Cathy Dennis/ Sophie Ellis-Bextor)

The morning paper

Look in the mirror

On your key-chain

Or in the coffee spoon

On your shirt sleeve

In the flat-screen

In your mailbox

Breathing over you

Come on baby, when will you see

That you and I were meant to be

And now I got my target on track

Baby you should know that I’m so good at that

Run to where you want, run to where you want

I am gonna find you

There ain’t no distance far enough

My love’s gonna find you

Run to where you want, run to where you want

But may I remind you

There ain’t no engine fast enough

My love’s gonna catch you

In your top drawer

In your cheque book

On your cellphone

By your easy-chair

In the next room

Behind the curtain

Can’t escape me

I’m watching everywhere

Come on baby, when will you see

That you and I were meant to be

And know I got my target, I’m on track

Baby you should know that I’m so good at that

Run to where you want

Run to where you want

I am gonna find you

There ain’t no distance far enough

My love’s gonna find you

Run to where you want, run to where you want

But may I remind you

There ain’t no engine fast enough

My love’s gonna catch you

Why waste your energy

No point in fighting

Let you heart surrender to your destiny

And this world’s not big enough

For you to hide for long

In this game of hide and seek

There’s nowhere left to run

Run to where you want, run to where you want

I am gonna find you

There ain’t no distance far enough

My love’s gonna find you

Run to where you want, run to where you want

But may I remind you

There ain’t no engine fast enough

My love’s gonna catch you

Catch you, catch you, catch you, catch you, catch you, catch you, catch you, catch you

Young Blood

(Sophie Ellis-Bextor/ Ed Harcourt)

The days

Are ghosts that pass right through us

In my eyes

You’re like an evergreen

Untouched

By the hours that fly around us

My love

Is that how you see me?

Remember when

Remember when we were the diamonds in the coal

Lovers know

There’s no age upon your soul

It’s all okay, you give me young blood

It’s coursing through my veins, it’s real love

Here inside my heart it’s crystallised

Like it’s framed in time and never tainted

Yeah, it’s alright, you give me young blood

Before the world I may be old enough

There’ll be a day to take the best of us

But till then we have young blood

Somehow

I never saw it coming

I’m caught

And it has set me free

Remember when

Remember when we used to talk of growing old

Lovers know

There’s no age upon your soul

Yeah, it’s okay, you give me young blood

It’s coursing through my veins, it’s real love

Here inside my heart it’s crystallised

Like it’s framed in time and never tainted

Yeah, it’s alright, you give me young blood

Before the world I may be old enough

There’ll be a day to take the best of us

But till then we have young blood

Oh...

On and on you give me young blood

It’s coursing through my veins, it’s real love

And here inside my heart it’s crystallised

Just like it’s framed in time and never tainted

Yeah, it’s alright, you give me young blood

Before the world I may be old enough

There’ll be a day to take the best of us

But till then we have young blood
