forever is seven months

This Pearls Before Swine comic reminded me of when I heard the song When You Say Nothing at All sung by Allison Krauss. I commented to the girl sitting next to me that if they ever broke up, the song would be invalidated. (because his eyes had lied). She wasn’t impressed.

  1. Remember Because you loved me by Celion Dion? I called it The Dysfunctional Song. “I’m everything I am because you loved me.” Hello! If that’s not crying out loud co-dependency I don’t know what is.

  2. How about Shaggy’s Angel song? He claims “The feelings I have for you are so strong…this could never be wrong”. Do you suppose this buys him an additional week? Also, If she takes off will Shaggy then call her a devil?

  3. If she takes off Shaggy’s next song will probably have slightly modified but similar lyrics.

    “The feelings I have for you are so strong…devil woman all along”

  4. Oh and Renee, there are many lyrics that indicate the writer has some serious issues with relationships and dependency. I sometimes wonder if the type of person who has those tendencies also tends to write and sing songs about it.

  5. Dan, you may be too young to remember Air Supply but they had this song that went:

    “Girl you’re every woman in the world to me
    You’re my fantasy, you’re my reality”

    D’ya think he was singing about a chick with multiple personality disorder? Or maybe he was the one with the problem.

  6. Renee, I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if Dan owns that CD. :)

  7. Levi, I hope that’s not a sly little slam on Air Supply because they rock! Okay, they don’t rock like Aerosmith or anything but they rock like they’re cool to sing in the car at the top of your lungs with your friends because they are so cheesy wonderful.

  8. They’re not the sort of cheesy wonderful that I like to sing in the car at the top of my lungs. Dan, however, seems to be into that sort of easy-listening cheesiness on occasion. Plus it’s something you’d play as a ‘slow song’ at a dance, and a lot of his CDs seem to have been purchased for DJ purposes.

    Anyway, you won’t find me spinning any Air Supply. Probably not Aerosmith, either, unless I’m in a particularly perverse mood. That ain’t my kind of rockin’!

  9. Ah. I thought you were going to say that Dan has those cds for background music when putting the moves on the ladies.

  11. Everyone knows the lyrics “Get out of my dreams, get in to my car” are a subtle reference to sodomy.

  12. air supply…goodness. haven’t thought of those sissies in a while. love the sinner – hate the hairdo.
    –as for lyrics that shouldn’t ever have been written, how about the ever irritating, “i don’t wanna close my eyes, i don’t wanna fall asleep, ‘cuz i’d miss ya baby, and i don’t wanna miss a thing.” sounds like a raging stalker to me, sitting outside my house with nightvision goggs.

  13. How about Shake You Down by Gregory Abbott? That song is so awful and yet so great. Such contradictory lyrics,

    “and you know, oooh girl that I’m not shy
    I’m glad you picked up on my telepathy ”

    If he’s not shy, why did he use telepathy?
