Song for the Soundtrack of Your Date Tonight
A love that’s unidentifiable. It flies through the air. It’s an object of desire. A UFO. Slick and pretty. All lit up on the outside. On the inside, strange creatures. The kind of creatures that tune in to a different frequency. The ones that threw away the manual on how to be a proper Earthling. Make it up as you go along. The journey is now. Blast off.
[Rickie Lee Jones, "We Belong Together" Pirates, 1981]
Song for the Soundtrack of Your No Date Tonight
You’a love vending machine? A plethora of tasty items. Behind glass. Stocked to keep the masses happy. Push a button. Get Lays. Ruffles. Do you like it smooth or with bumps? Know thyself. Don’t sell that love without a license. Get a learner’s permit. Understand the rules of the road. Merge. Or exit.
[Jamie Foxx, "I Don't Need it" Intuition, 2008]
