Steam – Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye/It’s The Magic In You Girl

Read Time:4 Minute, 3 Second

Behind file number 12 is a blue labeled 45 put out by Fontana records in 1969. It’s the smash hit by Steam Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye with It’s The Magic In You Girl as the B Side.

I thought both of these songs were terrible, but in researching the group, it makes sense. Steam was a fictitious band, made up of studio musicans Paul Leka, Gary DeCarlo, and Dale Frashuer. David Chester played guitar on Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye.

First is the song everyone knows, even if it’s just the chorus. 3:45 of this is enough for anyone to hear this for a lifetime.

I got these lyrics from google.

Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye/He’ll never love you, the way that I love you/’Cause if he did, no no, he wouldn’t make you cry/He might be thrillin’ baby but a-my love/(My love, my love)So dog-gone willin’/So kiss him/(I wanna see you kiss him, wanna see you kiss him)/Go on and kiss him goodbye, now/Na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye/Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye/Listen to me now/He’s never near you to comfort and cheer you/When all those sad tears are fallin’ baby from your eyes/He might be thrillin’ baby but a-my love/(My love, my love)So dog-gone willin’/So kiss him/(I wanna see you kiss him. I wanna see you kiss him)/Go on and kiss him goodbye, na-na, na-na-na, na, na/Na na na na, hey, hey-ey, goodbye/Hey, hey-ey, goodbye/Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye/Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye/Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye/Hey, hey-ey, goodbye/Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye/Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye/Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye/Hey, hey-ey, goodbye/Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye/Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye/Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye

The B Side is only a little better with It’s The Magic In You Girl. Thank goodness it is only 2:30 in length.

These lyrics were from google, with a little bit of tweaking from me.

Just one look at you… (one look at you…)/And my temperature rises… (and it rises…)/And then my heart … (there in my heart…)/Starts doing love’s exercises… (Up and down girl…)/For sometimes in my, my darkest days, help me to chase my blues away…/It’s the magic in you girl that makes me feel this way…yeah/(It’s the magic in you girl that makes me feel this way…yeah)/It’s the magic in you girl that makes me feel this way, feel this way, feel this way …/(It’s the magic in you girl that makes me feel this way, feel this way, feel this way…)Ooooooh….Your love’s got me traveling… (love’s got me traveling…)/On a sufferance highway… (on a highway…)/Passing up heartaches… (passing up heartaches…)/There’s good times coming…(coming)coming, coming my way…(coming, coming my way …)/The road looks clear, there’s no hills to climb/I’ll travel fast and leave my past behind/It’s the magic in you girl that makes me feel this way…yeah/(It’s the magic in you girl that makes me feel this way…yeah)/It’s the magic in you girl that makes me feel this way, feel this way, feel this way…/(It’s the magic in you girl that makes me feel this way, feel this way, feel this way…)/Ooooooh…., oooooh…./For sometimes in my, my darkest days… (the magic in you baby…)/(the magic in you baby…) helpin’ me chase my blues away…/It’s the magic in you girl that makes me feel this way…yeah/(It’s the magic in you girl that makes me feel this way…yeah)/It’s the magic in you girl that makes me feel this way, feel this way, feel this way…/(It’s the magic in you girl that makes me feel this way, feel this way, feel this way…)

Both of these songs are just bad. If I had to pick one, though, I’d pick It’s The Magic In You Girl. What about you?

I’m in complete agreement with your verdict. 😀 Not much there, but there’s a bit of a nice chord change or two in the bottom one. Now why they chose that photo for the cover, that’s another thing…

Yeah, then it was time to throw in the towel and hit the showers. 😉
