Song for the Soundtrack of Your Date Tonight
Love. It’s like a giant game of musical chairs. You don’t date, you take turns. This time the tide’s turned. You may have to unseat another to land this lover. If the girl is on your mind when you hit the pillow every night, you better speak up, buttercup, or you’ll be a lonely boy. If you two’re singing complementary keys in perfect harmony, seize this squeeze. Don’t hesitate. Gesticulate. Make your move. Wave her over. Give her a sign. A sign of your good times. Show her you’re a prince and she just may pounce. Give it every ounce.
[BlakRoc, "What You Do to Me" BlakRoc - The Black Keys + Damon Dash collaboration, 2009]
Song for the Soundtrack of Your No Date Tonight
Writing’s on the wall, babe. Take the L out of lonely and you’re one-ly or only if you can’t buy another vowel. But you’re one singular sensation every little step you take. Don’t forget this fact. As they say, when you close one door, another opens. Go ahead and slam that bad boy shut. Feel the wind in your hair as the portal pushes past your pout. Exfoliate your ex and discover the soft supple underbelly of another. Close your eyes and fall down that bunny hole, playmate. There’s a magic kingdom waiting to be explored. Hugh knew?
[The Motels, "Take the L" All For One, 1982]
