I don’t just love you, I’m addicted to you!
I’ll admit I wasn’t sure what I was going to choose for this week’s mix tape. And then I started thinking about all the crazy messed up things people do “for love.” We’ve all heard the stories, seen the movies and thanked our lucky stars we know how to behave better.
We can all be crazy and I know it isn’t just me. It’s just better when it’s someone else!
My selections for this week:
Lou Rawls, You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine
Could be flattering, could be stalkerish. Depends on how you look at it, I guess.
ABBA, I do, I do, I do from Muriel’s Wedding
This movie is crazy. Muriel/Mariel wants to be married in the worst way. It’s uncomfortable and sad (and fantastic) to watch Toni Colette in this role. However, when the wedding starts and this song blares through the church – oh my goodness I laughed out loud. It’s shocking.
Steve Miller Band, Jungle Love
“I brought you a crate of papaya, then waited all night by your door.” ‘Nuff said.
Except that it’s not because it’s also the soundtrack to one of my best high-school friends and I driving around for hours looking for my boyfriend at the time. We didn’t have any papaya but we played this song over and over and over! Hard to believe he didn’t want to be found by us, huh?
Blues Traveler, Alone
One of my favorite songs. Serious unrequited love. Popper is amazing.
Butthole Surfers, Pepper
I was going to write: I don’t know who Diane is but they are all crazy about her. And do crazy stuff to be around her. “They were all in love with Diane, they were doing it in Texas.”
Then I googled the lyrics and found out (just now!) that it’s dying. Not Diane.
I’ve listened to and sang this song (incorrectly) since it was released ca 1996! I guess I have an(other) entry for “Wrong Song Lyrics.”
Also, the song makes a lot more sense now.
Also, I’m an idiot.
So glad you stopped by! I would love to hear what songs you thought of when you heard the prompt this week!
