Eric Carmen: Boardwalk Baby

Recommended Posts

I love Eric's version of "Boardwalk Baby"! And even though it was recorded by another artist, I still think it has a shot at being a big hit song by Eric.

I also like other songs that Diane Warren wrote, including "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing" recorded by Aerosmith:

Diane had a run in the late 80's and 90's where she wrote or co-wrote tons of big hits! I think even Eric was in awe of her successful formula...And I still really like "My Heart Stops", dammit!

Boardwalk Baby

An endless kiss

In the moonlit mist

A blanket on the sand

Ooh you held my hand

Remember

A radio

Was playing soft and low

And we would sing along

And time went on

Forever

We were two shadows swaying slowly

Felt like the stars shined for us solely

On a summer night

You held me tight

You stole my heart away

You were my Boardwalk Baby

You used to drive me crazy

All of those nights

All of those nights

When you were mine

We stole the night together

We made it last forever

You'd always be

You'd always be

My Boardwalk Baby

Tender nights

Far from the city lights

Oh I can still remember

That sweet surrender

When we kissed

The gentle breeze

Whispered to you and me

This love will last forever

Yeah we’d stay together

Just like this

The sound of the waves, like distant thunder

The moon cast a spell that took us under

On a summer night

I held you tight

I stole your heart away

You were my Boardwalk Baby

You used to drive me crazy

All of those nights

All of those nights

When you were mine

We stole the night together

We made it last forever

You'd always be

You'd always be

My Boardwalk Baby

Remember the time when time passed so slow?

Remember the time I held you so close?

Oh I’d give anything

To hold you now

Won’t you come out tonight?

Let's meet by the boardwalk, baby

C'Mon and drive me crazy

All through the night

Like all those nights

When you were mine

We'll steal one night together

We'll make it last forever

You'll always be

You'll always be

My Boardwalk Baby

You were my Boardwalk Baby

You used to drive me

Drive me crazy

My-my-my-my-my

My Boardwalk Baby

billy.. good call on "it should have been me"...love that lost gem. guess it depends on what you consider a "hit" to be. i sort of dismissed it after a few listens comparing it to MMLC..but found myself singing the chorus later in the day...guess thats why they call it a hook..

I have been missing from this board for way too long!! Came back to find this gem and all I can say is...Clive probably should have called it a day after passing on this. It's a great song!

good to "see" you Betsey....BTW I must've played this song 10 times today!

BTW...who knew Diane Warren sang so well? Those are some nice background vocals there by one of the most prolific songwriters of the past 60 years.

Hi June...it's been awhile! Go back to the home page- about 1/3 of the way down you can click on a link that will take you to the thread on 'Boardwalk Baby'. One more click and you'll be singing the chorus right along with Eric. Hope you're not planning on going to sleep right away...you'll be humming the song all night long grin

Here- this will make it easier:
