Like the Way I Do...Melissa Etheridge, 1988.
Angsty 80's songs, from the soundtrack of my life, is my theme for the A-Z challenge this year.
I had just let myself listen to the letter K song one more time, and the pouring rain was getting the best of me. I decided to preview my letter L song while I finished up a few things in the kitchen. As the opening chords played, I thought for a split second about how I could really only remember how the chorus went. In the very next moment, the words were flying out of my mouth..."Is it so hard, to satisfy your senses?" How far in the deep recesses of my brain was that information stored? Oh, I wasn't just a housewife and mother getting a few last minute slumber preparations under way. No, I had unleashed some inner teenage demon who was loudly singing into her cupcake batter covered beater microphone...
Tell me does she love you
Like the way I love you
Does she stimulate you
Attract and captivate you
I was hitting every word and note, as far as I could tell. Well it was raining pretty loudly, and I suppose the dog might've been begging to differ as he scampered off. No matter, as in my mind my fabulous voice and I were back in my bedroom at my parents house, pondering how that boy slipped away, and wondering just how long it was going to take him to realize that nobody would love him like I did.
Does she want you
Infatuate and haunt you
(Oh, there is no doubt I haunted him.)
