Song for the Soundtrack of Your Date Tonight

Stay in for love tonight. Hunker down. Your tools: excellent bed linens, creative plans, good food, tasty drinks. All you need. All you need is love. Love. Make that love and a heater. That’s all you need. And food. Definitely food. And love. Definitely love.

[Todd Rhodes Orchestra, “Rocket 69” 1951]


Song for the Soundtrack of Your No Date Tonight

Not gonna give you any satisfaction
Ain’t gonna give you a reaction
You tried
Trying’s for those who wish to succeed
For those who know they’ll succeed
Even if you trip
It’s best not to fall

[Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings, “Better Things” I Learned the Hard Way, 2010]
