|01:43 am - furthermore|
i resolve to call her up a thousand times a day
and ask her if she'll marry me in some oldfashioned way
but my silent fears have gripped me
long before i reach the phone
long before my tongue has tripped me
must i always be alone
np: police - every little thing she does is magic
all thier songs are so fucked up and no one notices, it's funny. at the end of "can't stand losing you" the guy kills himself. when "every breathe you take" came out, it was the biggest wedding song of that year, apparently. sting wrote it about getting divorced and stalking his ex wife and being a creepy fuck.
except "de do do do" that song is just worthless.
That is plenty creepy. I always said that "every breath you take" was the stalkers themesong...

re: "every breath you take".. how the fuck can anybody not see that as a scary stalker song? READ THE BLOODY LYRICS! THIS IS NOT A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP HERE!
--johny, not having to put on the red light
people don't listen to lyrics. i've had this verymuch reinforced talking to my dad. he is strongly against any songs whcih seem to be pro-drugs, even if they are blatantly not when you actually listen to them. for example, that buckcherry song where he goes "i love the cocaine" over and over. the song is pretty clearly against cocaine, but he picks out that one line and says kids will hear that and go take cocaine. same reasoning with weezer "hash pipe" it's abotu doing drugs, so kids will hear it and do drugs. nevermind that it's about a guy who whores himself out to buy drugs.
but anyway, getting back on topic. the song sounds vaguely pleasant, sting has a rep of being a romantic songwriter dude (tho really he didn't mellow out til he left the police, all their songs are friggin creepy), and a cursory listen makes it sound sweet.. he's with her every move she makes, aw what devotion, blah. so yeah.
of course, our society has an established tendency to consider stalking romantic

well, if nobody listens to lyrics, then your dad is right. "hey, cocaine and hash, neat!" and it's off to the races.
and n*sync hasn't made you gay yet..
as i tell my dad, anyone who does cocaine based on one line of a song they don't btoehr to listen to properly SHOULD be off to the races
are they trying to?

hell, if a song is constructed as to promote drug use and listening to it makes you think "hey, that sounds like a lark", then you probly didn't come into the experience with much keeping you out of the den anyway.
i think so. they keep stroking my legs when i'm asleep. unless that's the cat?
oh dear, max is in n*sync now..

Den is keeping you out of the Den!! Imma get a tattoo on my lower back, with an arrow pointing to my bum, and words saying "no point of entry".

free tibet AND den's ass!
i think i'll have that song on repeat when i get a creepy looking truck and go stalk Rain. hmm.... i dont think stalking is gonna work the same way when the person WANTS to see you.
GOD, i have the image of that ep of the adny dick show where he like, trained some guy to be his stalker.
