I want to know of the name of the song that I bleive has the line Mr Jingle Jangle. It's an up beat song. Anyone
I know part of a line---place i'd rather be.

I know this sucks I'm looking for a power mix cd and I know it has this song on it but I can't remember the rest. my mind is blank. Do you know how hard it is to find a CD that you can't remember any of the songs and the one you do remember you have no clue on the words or name. (can you tell music is not my strong point

Is this it?

Mr. Jingle Jangle
Steve Ripley

They call me Mr. Jingle Jangle
Nerves on edge—Tangled up in you
I guess it’s true

I know I should just let it be
Instead I’m walkin’ the ledge tryin’ to see it through
That’s all I can do

The sun is shining—I can’t see it
I just turn away
My world’s gone flat since you’re not in it
All I see is gray

They call me Mr. Jingle Jangle
Enough is enough—I can’t handle anymore
No more

Everybody’s got somebody
I just turn away
Lovers holding hands and laughing
All I see is gray

They call me Mr. Jingle Jangle
Enough is enough—I can’t handle anymore
No, no more


All my friends say let her go
Give her up—but they don’t know how it was before
I can’t take anymore

The sun is shining—I can’t see it
I just turn away
My world’s gone flat since you’re not in it
All I see is gray

They call me Mr. Jingle Jangle
Nerves on edge—tangled up in you
I guess it’s true
I guess it’s true
Yes it is, it’s true
Yes it is, it’s true

Mr. Bojangles??
I was wondering the same thing. The only song I can think of with Jingle Jangle in it is one we sang in elementary school:
I've got spurs that jingle jangle jingle
As I go riding merrily along.
And they sing "Oh ain't you glad you're single?"
And that song ain't so very far from wrong

The only song with jingle-jangle is "Do you Love Me" by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds. Not really upbeat though.

I found her on a night of fire and noise
Wild bells rang in a wild sky
I knew from that moment on
I'd love her till the day that I died
And I kissed away a thousand tears
My lady of the various sorrows
Some begged, some borrowed, some stolen
Some kept safe for tomorrow
On an endless night, silver star spangled
The bells from the chapel went jingle-jangle

Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me, like I love you?

She was given to me to put things right
And I stacked all my accomplishments beside her
Still I seemed so obsolete and small
I found God and all His devils inside her
In my bed she cast the blizzard out
A mock sun blazed upon her head
So completely filled with light she was Her shadow fanged and hairy and mad
Our love-lines grew hopelessly tangled
And the bells from the chapel went jingle-jangle

Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me, like I love you?

She had a heartful of love and devotion
She had a mindful of tyranny and terror
Well, I try, I do, I really try
But I just err, baby, I do, I error
So come find me, my darling one
I'm down to the grounds, the very dregs
Ah, here she come, blocking the sun
Blood running down the inside of her legs
The moon in the sky is battered and mangled
And the bells from the chapel go jingle-jangle

Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me, like I love you?

All thing move toward their end
I knew before I met her that I would lose her
I swear I made every effort to be good to her
I swear I made every effort not to abuse her
Crazy bracelets on her wrists and ankles
And the bells from the chapel went jingle-jangle

Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me, like I love you?
Onward! And Onward! And Onward I go
Where no man before could be bothered to go
Till the soles of my shoes are shot full of holes
And it's all downhill with a bullet
This ramblin' and rovin' has taken it's course
I'm grazing with the dinosaurs and the dear old horses
And the city streets crack and a great hole forces
Me down with my soapbox, my pulpit
The theatre ceiling is silver star spangled
And the coins in my pocket go jingle-jangle

Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?

There's a man in the theatre with girlish eyes
Who's holding my childhood to ransom
On the screen there's a death, there's a rustle of cloth
And a sickly voice calling me handsome
There's a man in the theatre with sly girlish eyes
On the screen there's an ape, a gorilla
There's a groan, there's a cough, there's a rustle of cloth
And a voice that stinks of death and vanilla
This is a secret, mauled and mangled
And the coins in my pocket go jingle-jangle

Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?

The walls in the ceiling are painted in blood
The lights go down, the red curtains come apart
The room is full of smoke and dialogue I know by heart
And the coins in my pocket jingle-jangle
As the great screen crackled and popped
And the clock of my boyhood was wound down and stopped
And my handsome little body oddly propped
And my trousers ride down to my ankles
Yes, it's onward! And upward! And I'm off to find love
Do you love me? If you do, I'm thankful

Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?

This city is an ogre squatting by the river
It gives life but it takes it away, my youth
There comes a time when you just cannot deliver
This is a fact. This is a stone cold truth
Do you love me? I love you, handsome
But do you love me? Yes, I love you, you are handsome
Amongst the cogs and the wires, my youth
Vanilla breath and handsome apes with girlish eyes
Dreams that roam between truth and untruth
Memories that become monstrous lies
So onward! And Onward! And Onward I go!
Onward! And Upward! And I'm off to find love
With blue-black bracelets on my wrists and my ankles
And the coins in my pocket go jingle-jangle

Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?

Dave Bromberg does a nice version, also but it's not a new release.

If you do a google search for mr. tambourine man remix there are other artists/groups who look to have done more hip-hop versions that might be used in a step class. Did you ask you instructor where the music is from?

I asked her and she said power music.com and it was on a powermix Cd but I looked all afternoon and couldn't find it. I will ask next week to see the Cd.
