I wish I didn't love you so.

There are some songs that you just know in your heart that you should be offended by and that you should absolutely hate. Like a siren’s song, however, the catchiness of the tunes just get into your head and you find yourself the humming the songs to yourself, cringing all the while.

I have known some guys who thought that women were their property. I have known women who could not respect a guy unless he treated her like she was his property. Either way, I think it is a disgusting concept. However, I like this song, except perhaps for the kazoo solo.

A guy goes to bed with his best friend’s girlfriend. Disgusting. But I like the sound of this country song.

I am greatly troubled by the proliferation of drugs. We are not allowed to burn leaves in the fall anymore because it causes air pollution but inhaling marijuana directly into the lungs has no ill effect. In some places medical marijuana can be prescribed by anyone you designate as your health care provider, medical degree not needed. You can use it in any strength, and in many cases an unknown strength. You can have it whenever you please. Pfizer should be so lucky as to have its drugs used with the same lack of restrictions. But this song rocks.

I am not going to apologize for this one. You just KNOW he isn’t serious. I love the end of the spoken part:

         “Yeah she’s ugly but she sure can cook, baby.”

         “Yeah. Alright.”

Music. Can’t live with it and can’t live without it.


  1. "If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life
    Better make an ugly woman your wife"

    This song cracks me up every time I hear it. I love this song :)

    ....posted by someone with a lifetime ban from the Feminist movement. And damn proud of it!

  2. A trip down memory lane!

    I try not to pay much attention to lyrics unless it's a composer known for good writing. Like Gordon Downie or Joanie Mitchell.

    I recognized the first song but I knew it by another singer. I also enjoy that Arlo Guthrie tune but didn't know the other 2...

  3. ok I think we're going to do this one in small doses.

    I want a brave man / I want a cave man / Johnny show me that you care

    OK. Right. Well then. Another song which is begging for an ironic cover by Courtney Love and Hole. Maybe as a duet with Taylor Swift.

    It couldn't have been any better - and yet, the dude's beer is only half warm afterwards... if it was that good the beer would have been piss warm and undrinkable by the time they were done. Just sayin'...

    1. OK now the Johnny song is an earworm which I will be singing in the shower. Yeah, catchy melody. Real catchy!

  4. Arlo Gurthy song does rock. So glad I don't fly with drugs any more. I can't recommend it; not worth the anxiety.

  5. Jimmy Soul - love it! What a great tune! But what is that thing screaming at around 1:48... a freakin' Muppet? So funny...

    I could see a ska band like English Beat playing this...

  6. Nice mix of music Matt! I've heard the country tune before, but not the others.
