Tonight ~ Kool and the Gang
Remember this slammin' bit of righteousness? It's about a young man "seeing the light" and losing his virginity on the eve of his 16th birthday, and it never fails to make me seat-dance (you know, dancing in your seat? 'Cause actually getting up to dance might put me in traction.). But seriously, I heart the hell outta this tune.
Take Me, I'm Yours ~ Squeeze
I love the trudging synth in this song about the reunion of a pair of lovers...its determined, rhythmic march evokes for me the image of a hero, exhausted from battle, fighting his way through sandstorms as he makes his way home to the heroine. "Take me, I'm yours - because dreams are made of this. Forever there'll be a heaven in your kiss..." ::swoons::
Touch Me I'm Going To Scream Part II ~ My Morning Jacket
Y'all, I don't know for sure that this song's about love, at all. I interpret some of the lyrics as the words of one who's shut himself off from love and, when it approaches him, he feels stunned. ("If you touch me, well I just think I'll scream, 'cause it's been so long since someone challenged me.") But this jolt into awareness stirs him, and it seems hope slowly seeps into him, filling him with joy. ("Oh! This feeling is wonderful! Don't you ever turn it off!") I dunno. What do y'all think?
