Your Favorite Booty Shaker Song
|Thank you, Megan at The Patchwork Paisley for your beautiful artwork EVERY week!|
I was a teenager who was a hopeless romantic. Bad combination. I dreamt of grand gestures of movie kinds of love. The end scene of "An Officer and a Gentleman"... swoon. Aladdin's magic carpet ride... sigh. I never really liked the movie "Say Anything" (I know. I know. Don't kill me!) but the scene where John Cusack blasts Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" through the boombox he is holding over his head... why don't I just blow up into a million heart shaped pieces.
So it should come as no surprise that as a brooding, poetry writing teenager I could be found in my room listening to love songs over and over and over and over. (Back then I had cassette tapes so to listen to a song over and over and over and over I had to physically get up and hit rewind. Wait for it to rewind. Then hit play. I'm sure my mom was thankful for this since it gave her at least a one minute break from listening to the same song too. Over and over and over and over.)
One in particular.
When I think back to these years, there is only one song. This song. No other song comes close. How I didn't break the cassette tape from repeated listening is a secret only between God, the Universe, and Physics. I waited for days to catch this song on the radio and called into radio stations to dedicate this song to Teenage Boy so that I could hit Record and tape it. And then it came everywhere with me. If you didn't know me in middle school, you should thank your lucky stars. If you did - you already know my Love Song:
Oh my God. I can't even handle how much I still love this song.
What's your Love Song???
