Gonna Get Close to You (4:36)

We don't have a wiki here yet...


I like to look at shadows sweating on the wall
I get excited when I hear footsteps in the hall
Outside your balcony I have a room with a view
And I'm watching you

Queensrÿche - Gonna Get Close to You Lyrics

  • I laugh at the people below praising Geoff for conveying scarily real emotions in this cover. The very reason this cover strikes me as inferior to the original is that Lisa Dalbello is actually scary, but Geoff just hams it up pointlessly (compare Lisa and Geoff's singing of "some kind of a lunatic" and "plain as black and white"; Lisa conveys psychotic desperation better; Geoff also dull-surprises his way through the "I'm gonna get close to you/So close to you" chorus). Michael, Chris, Eddie and Scott don't help matters much either - they stomp all over the precise dynamics of the original by turning it into a leaden rawkout (oh, the irony of turning up the volume translating to a dilution of the nightmare fuel factor...). Probably the most disappointing song on Rage for Order.
  • This song is unintentionally funny, yet still manages to creep me out.
  • i love this tune
  • "One of the great QR songs ever" lol nope
  • They made this song their bitch alright.
  • I first heard this song around five years ago and I never knew it was a cover until today :0
  • turn out the light...
  • If you knew my infinite charm...
  • I've been listening to this for decades and had no clue this was a cover.
  • Both versions (cover and Dalbello's original from her album 'Whomanfoursays') are great!
