Song for the Soundtrack of Your Date Tonight
Feeling date-ish but haven’t quite locked down one down yet? The Friday bell’s getting ready to ring at the quarry, Flintstone, you best be scrolling through that little black tablet of yours. Last minute love nets a handful of short time honeys, but there’s that one diamond in the rough that presses a little harder on your heart than you’re prepared for. That lump of coal’s worth a second look. Squeeze ‘em extra tight tonight. Feel something shiny inside? You may be holding onto something more valuable than you think.
[Ida Maria, “I Like You So Much Better When You’re Naked” Fortress ‘Round Your Heart, 2008]
Song for the Soundtrack of Your No Date Tonight
If you’ve Pricelined yourself a room at Heartbreak Hotel tonight choose your leisure activities wisely. Unless your room has a hot tub time machine, there’s no point in reliving lost love and crying in your mini bar Miller Lite. Just like sharks, the minute that ex smells blood, it’s all over. You’ll end up with more bite marks than Marv Albert’s date. Time to bait up, buttercup. There’s plenty o’ fish in the sea of love. Cast away.
[Hoodoo Gurus, “I Want You Back” Stoneage Romeos, 1983]
