Song for the Soundtrack of Your Date Tonight
What would happen if you turned everything over for love? Your heart. Your soul. What’s left of your free time. Free fall. Seriously. What would happen? A front of your face delivery of endorphins? A high you can’t buy. Slim Shady on the corner of Hoozie & Whatzie don’t have this in his baggie. You got it all in your heart. It’s free to the bravest bidder. Throw up your paddle. Hop in the saddle. Or sack. Do you know Jack? You do. And he’s telling you to get out of your box. Or in it. Win it. Play your heart. It’s a brilliant place to start. Throw down and grow up, Buttercup.
[Squeeze, "Take Me I'm Yours" Singles-45's And Under, 1989]
Song for the Soundtrack of Your No Date Tonight
Time to get an appraisal of your curb appeal. Do the drive-bys get an accurate picture of what’s inside, Clyde? You better think. You can’t or you won’t see what others see? Two very different concepts and too easily confused. There’d be no more lonely nights if you just did it right. As your mama would say, if you have something nice to say, SAY IT. Spill and you get the thrill. Cork. Well, uh, you’re a dork. If you love someone from afar, get up close. Tell ‘em how you feel. Send a smoke signal, a telegram, a carrier pigeon, a letter, a message in a bottle. Don’t bottle it up. Free, free. Set your feelings free.
[Al Green, "I Can't Get Next to You" Gets Next to You, 1971]
