Turn It On

Song written by Mike Chapman and Holly Knight.
Kim recorded this song especially for the soundtrack of the movie Weird Science. The track was produced by Jimmy Iovine. The album with this song was released in 1985 by MCA Records and has turned into a collector’s item.
In the movie, the song can only be heard for a short while in the background when the boys and their “perfect woman” are driving in a car.

Released on the soundtrack LP for the movie in 1985, it wasn’t released on cd until the 2010 expanded edition of Teases & Dares was released by Cherry Pop.

The song was covered by Marilyn Martin on her self-titled album which was released in 1986.


I shake and I shiver when you reach for me
and the pearls on the bottom of the deep blue sea
The way you deliver you could make me free
as I get lost is the riddle of your mystery

Who will you find to love you
Nobody quite like me
It’s not the way you walk
must be the way you talk

So turn it on, turn it on
Baby turn it on
Maybe you need me
Turn it on, when I’m weak
baby make me strong
Oh when you’re gone
I get lost baby I go wrong
So turn it on, let it loose
baby all night long
If you need me

From the ship I’ve been sailing
I was cast away
I was slipped off your fingers
and I had to stay
Direction failing and my heart at sea
and that look in your eyes meant for me
Where would I be without you
Why would I ever leave
Could it be the way you touch
You make me want so much
