      *Quick Editor’s Comments: Beautiful music video with beautiful, joyful sounds!

      1. Laura Branigan “Self Control” partial song’s lyrics state:

      Oh, the Night
      *Is my world, world-world, world*
      *City light, painted girl, girl-girl, girl*
      In the day, nothing matters
      It’s the night time that flatters
       

      Quick Editor’s Comments from David E Ros

      In the song’s lyrics, the female character states of enjoying going “out” to stroll the preferred areas of town at night-time while dressed nicely, enjoying people watching, flirting, etc., which can be fun when it is safe to be outdoors.

      In the song’s lyrics, the female character states:
      “It’s the night time that flatters”

      The song’s lyrics discuss the female character being complimented by desired males in her night-time outings.

      Wonderful music video, wonderful performance and beautiful song concerning the popular actions of a possible meeting for love, dating and intimate romance strolling her favorite night-time streets. However is surprisingly a Rhythm and Blues song revealing the many dangers of romancing on the prison planet Earth.

      Laura Branigan looks attractive, beautiful and brave singing a song with serious topic lyrics in this music video. Laura Branigan is dressed in slim, tight-fitting clothing which is eye-catching to the viewers of this music video.


      2. Laura Branigan “Self Control” partial song’s lyrics state:

      *In the night, no control, control-control, control*
      *Through the wall, wall-wall, wall something’s breaking*
      Wearing white as you’re walking
      *Down the street of my soul, soul-soul, soul*

      *(You take my self)*
      You take my self-control
      *(You got me)*
      *You got me living only for the night*
      *Before the morning comes, the story’s told, told-told, told*
      *(You take my self)*
      You take my self-control

      Another night, another day goes by
      I never stop myself to wonder why
      You help me to forget to play my role
      You take my self
      You take my self-control
       

      Quick Editor’s Comments from David E Ros

      The song’s lyrics state:
      *In the night, no control, control-control, control*
      *Through the wall, wall-wall, wall something’s breaking*

      Describes that the night-time scene as being wild, dangerous, etc.

      The song’s lyrics state:
      Wearing white as you’re walking
      *Down the street of my soul, soul-soul, soul*

      Wearing white clothing exhibits qualities of purity, avoidance of participation in outlaw behavior and a person not tainted by crime. The night-time street scene pleases her soul’s balance so she is happy despite the wild actions and dangers.

      The song’s lyrics state:
      *(You take my self)*
      You take my self-control
      *(You got me)*
      *You got me living only for the night*

      The female character is going beyond her limits of self-control for safety permitting dangers on herself so to enjoy the night-time scene.


      3. Laura Branigan “Self Control” partial song’s lyrics state:
      *-[Chorus 1:]-*
      *I, I, I*
      *I live among the creatures of the Night*
      I haven’t got the will to try and fight
      Against a new tomorrow
      So I guess I’ll just believe it
      That tomorrow never comes

      *I say “Safe Night!”*
      *(You take my self, you take my self-control)*
      *I’m living in a forest of a dream*
      *(You take my self, you take my self-control)*
      I know the night is not as it would seem
      *(You take my self, you take my self-control)*

      I must believe in something
      *(You take my self, you take my self-control)*
      So I’ll make myself believe it
      *(You take my self, you take my self-control)*
      That this night will never go
       

      Quick Editor’s Comments from David E Ros

      The song’s lyrics state:
      *-[Chorus 1:]-*
      *I, I, I*
      *I live among the creatures of the Night*
      I haven’t got the will to try and fight
      Against a new tomorrow
      So I guess I’ll just believe it
      That tomorrow never comes

      In the song’s lyrics the female character is stating that she loves the night-time when many people are outdoors for excitement, adventures, etc. And she is ready to possibly perish for her wild, possibly dangerous actions of going out at night. Last revised: 10-7-2018

      Discussions of Laura Branigan singing, performing “Self Control” song and the use of extended carrying tempo with the singing of a song’s lyrics word in the music video

      Definition and explanation of the act, the art of “singing” courtesy of:
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singing
      Singing is the act of producing musical sounds with the voice and augments regular speech by the use of sustained tonality, rhythm, and a variety of vocal techniques.

      The song’s lyrics of Laura Branigan singing “Self Control” at one point state:

      Oh, the Night
      *Is my world, world-world, world*
      *City light, painted girl, girl-girl, girl*
      In the day, nothing matters
      It’s the night time that flatters

      Quick Editor’s Comments from David E Ros:
      The Lord, the owner who is the song’s lyrics writer and music composer are not debatable topics considering the Lord, the owner’s eternities of involvement in music. So in a musical composition the Lord, the owner sets the “tempo pace”, the speed for the extended carrying tempo with the singing of a particular song’s lyrics word which can differ from the song’s overall tempo pace. Here the word “girl” are carried and sung with the extended multiples singing the sung word at the selected, composed tempo pace, speed. The multiple repetitions, extended carrying tempo of a sung word takes a noticeable longer time than when the singular word is sung alone. The tempo pace is noted with the “comma” separations between the multiples of the extended carried tempo’s sung word.

      In this short extended carrying of a sung word in the song’s lyrics *City light, painted girl, girl-girl, girl* is the “girl-girl” lyrics which is placed in the tempo pace of the extended carrying of a sung word’s pace yet produces a different vocal sound. This is because “girl-girl” has a faster singing pace inside the overall tempo pace of the extend carrying of a sung word in the song’s lyrics because of the use of the “hyphen” singing song’s lyrics command.

      Multiple repetitions, extended carrying tempo of a word is a very advance artistic part of singing that adds joyful sounds to the song’s presentation and empathize the extended carried tempo sung word.

      Explanation of “Tempo Measurement” courtesy of:
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tempo
      Tempo Measurement:
      While tempo is described or indicated in many different ways, including with a range of words (e.g., “Slowly”, “Adagio” and so on), it is typically measured in beats per minute (bpm or BPM). For example, a tempo of 60 beats per minute signifies one beat per second, while a tempo of 120 beats per minute is twice as rapid, signifying one beat every 0.5 seconds. The note value of a beat will typically be that indicated by the meter signature. For instance, in 4/4 the beat will be a crotchet or quarter note.
