About There's a Ghost In My House

"There's a Ghost in My House" is a song written by Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, and Eddie Holland of Motown Records, together with R. Dean Taylor. It was originally recorded by Taylor in 1966. Produced by Brian Holland and Lamont Dozier, it was released as a single on the Motown subsidiary V. I. P. label in April 1967, but was not a hit. However, after it had become a popular dance song in Northern soul clubs in Britain, such as the Blackpool Mecca and Wigan Casino, R. Dean Taylor's record was reissued on EMI's Tamla Motown label with a B-side of "Let's Go Somewhere", and reached no. 3 on the UK Singles Chart in 1974. Versions of the song were later recorded by British bands Yachts (1980), B. E. F. (British Electric Foundation) featuring Paul Jones (1982), and the Very Things (1987). A version recorded by the Fall in 1987 became their first single to reach the top 50 in the UK, peaking at no. 30, and was included on their album The Frenz Experiment. A version was included by Graham Parker in 2000 on Loose Monkeys, an album of out-takes.

There's a ghost in my house
The ghost of your memory
The ghost of the love that was took from me

Our love used to be
Only shadows in the past I see
Times can't seem to've erased
The vision of your smiling face

Dead flowers I sent thee
I can't get over ye

There's a ghost in my house
I can't hide (ghost in my house)
For the ghost of your love is inside (ghost in my house)
Keeps on haunting me (ghost in my house)
Just keeps on becalling me (ghost in my house)

Down in my tea cup
I see your face looking up
Sitting in my easy chair
I feel your fingers running through my hair

Though we're far apart
Your spectre's in my heart

There's a ghost in my house
I can't hide (ghost in my house)
For the ghost of your love is inside (ghost in my house)
Keeps on haunting me (ghost in my house)
Still just a part of me (ghost in my house)

By the way I hang my head
You can see I'm afraid
Thought my heart knows you're gone
My mind keeps rolling on

There's a ghost in my house
I can't hide

In my house I am helpless
practice superstitious

I hear footsteps on the stairs
I know there's no-one there
Keeps on haunting me
Keeps on haunting me

There's a ghost in my house
A ghost of your memory
A ghost of the love that was took from me
Ghost in my house...

The Fall

The Fall are an English post-punk band, formed in Prestwich, Greater Manchester, in 1976. With an ever-changing line up, the group essentially consists of its founder and only constant member, Mark E. Smith, who has said "If it's me and your granny on bongos, then it's [the] Fall". First associated with the late 1970s punk movement, the band's music has evolved through numerous stylistic changes, often concurrently with changes in the group's membership. The Fall's music is characterised by repetition, an abrasive guitar-driven sound, and is always underpinned by Smith's often cryptic lyrics, described by critic Steve Huey as "abstract poetry filled with complicated wordplay, bone-dry wit, cutting social observations, and general misanthropy." more »
