I often wonder who listens to a song and really thinks "that song is what I am feeling right now...did I go back to 1987 and talk to Patrick Swayze?" I know I didn't (no matter how much I drank this weekend.) I mean there are songs out there like Conquistador by Procol Harum (yes...they made more songs than Whiter Shade of Pale,) where Gary Brooker says "Though you came with sword held high, you did not conquer, only die..." and I think "I've been there." No...I haven't, metaphorically, yes...litterally I was never a conquistador, yet I digress. There are songs like Sledgehammer ny Peter Gabriel where it comes close. "Yes, I wanna shed my skin...oh my GOD! WHAT IS HE SINGING ABOUT?!?!? THAT'S NASTY!!!!!" Anyway, I am having trouble concentrating on my subject. Ok, so songs like "She's Like the Wind" is a pretty common situation. I like the girl, does she like me? This is driving me crazy, I'm not good enough...but it just sometimes sings (no pun intended) to me. Ok, enough of that...this is not Match.com. I guess that's the key to a good writer...or a pathetic fool. Some songs like Ben E. King's "Stand by Me" is another example. An "if this happens will you be there for me?" Another song that makes me think they know what I am talking about is "Payback" by Slayer (oh wait, I'm not supposed to talk about that one.)
Now I know most the songs I have posted are love songs as examples. That's the funny thing...but that's all I got for you this time, till we meet again, keep hitting the HIGH NOTES.
