about

I cannot remember how i came up with the song idea or title, other than of course the famous song 'Fools rush in' that was covered by many fabulous artists, as diverse as Bow Wow Wow and Elvis, was the underlying thought.
Definitely another tale of unrequited love with the added theme of trying again, time after time, knowing one will never find self-acceptance in another person or the relationship to another person, but only in oneself. The song started as a little techno demo but i had the vision of going end 60's motown, i.e. a more Norman Whitfield'esque epicness. Amusing anecdote: When I told Felix Huber, the producer to add a big tambourine with lots of reverb he said: 'On soul recordings they didn't do that and neither did they do it on Motown recordings specifically'. I said: 'Oh yes they did!" and produced a Martha Reeves album where the tambourine alone filled a room with it's epic reverberation'. We had a good laugh about this.
The demo was produced by Vinnie Vero and sung in Steve Donatos kitchen in NYC,
Here's more:
The second single plucked from the 18 Carat Garbage album, Where Fools Rush In was one of the highlights of Billies recent UK gigs. Deep house mixes by Matthias "Matty" Heilbron (Wave USA), and euro-trance by Felix Huber (Plexiq). Includes a bonus remix of the albums' title track by Lunatek.

Track Name: Where Fools Rush In (Radio Edit)
it was a different face and a different smile then
in a lover's land where lovers kiss, mm
it was another place and another time then
but the same old plans and promises

somewhere I don't know where
there's a place for lost time
I know I shouldn't go there but I

I wanna be where fools rush in
I wanna fall in love again
I wanna go back to the place where I believe in lost words
I wanna lay my soul bare
knowing it leads to nowhere
and when it's over will there be a next chance, be a next chance

looking back to where the end of time ends
never knowing what was really there, mm
where every end is like a blast of silence (yes it is)
that's defeating me from there to here

sometime I don't know when
I will claim what is mine
and I won't be denied when I say

I wanna be where fools rush in
I wanna fall in love again
I wanna run back to the place where I believe in lost words
I wanna lay my soul bare
knowing it leads to nowhere
and when it's over will there be a next chance, be a next chance

though love is lonely
I'm a fool on lover's lane
though it's hurtin' me so bad, only
here will I be safe (hey)

I wanna be where fools rush in
I wanna fall in love again
I wanna go back to the place where I believe in lost words
I wanna lay my soul bare
knowing it leads to nowhere
and when it's over will there be a next chance (the next chance)
be a next chance

I wanna be where fools rush in
I wanna fall in love again
I wanna run back to the place where I believe in lost words
I wanna stand in the door there
knowing it leads to nowhere
and when it's all over will there be a next chance (the next chance)
be a next chance

mm, give me one more chance
oh yes, one more chance
mm.. give me, give me

I wanna sing a song about pride

Track Name: 18 Carat Garbage (Lunatek Remix)
I don't like your party dress
cause this ain't no party
you're falling around as if you
you know where the ground is

you've seen me a thousand times
and you know what my name is
but if you were in my shoes you'd know
what the price of fame is

so I wait outside
to see what I can see
and I follow you in through the blinds
until you're part of me

and I'm waiting
yes I'm waiting

I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize my face
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
don't slam the door

I won't take a photograph cause
nothing would be on it
and there ain't a dime store novel
that I could write from it

and I don't wanna sound insane and
I don't know what your game is
I just wanna seize your brain and
see where LA is

so lock the house, burn it
but save the silver tray
but please give daddy that knife back
and please throw the gun away

I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize my face
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
don't slam the door

there are hollow sounds in the hall of fame
and they're haunting me
I like people
yeah I like people when they're on tv

I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize my face
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage, yeah
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
don't slam the door

I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize my face
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
don't slam the door

because I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize me
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
don't slam the door

I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize my face
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
