Summersongs: Romeo Void

7 08 2014

Had enough of the angry money posts? How about biting sex posts?

Biting sex. . . hmmm, I see how that could be taken a couple of different ways. In any case, the “biting” refers to the attitude of Deborah Iyall toward sexy sexytimes and the occasional aftermath.

I first thought “A Girl in Trouble (Is a Temporary Thing)” would be the summersong, but after a night out with C & K, thought that maybe “Never Say Never”

Whatever. It’s Romeo Void, and even tho’ Iyall tells the girl that old man would “be warm in your coat”, why be literal about the coat-wearing and the presumably cold weather?

It’s about the beat and the attitude—and the backup boys singing temporary temporary in the chorus.

Do pop songs even use sax anymore? And, yeah, those Eighties video production values. . . .

I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together

How can you not sing along to that?

Well, I do enjoy biting sex. Should probably get my life together some first.

There was a girl in your class, who had a younger sister and my class, whom we would call K-Car (a nice Reliant automobile) by todays nicknaming standards. You know who I mean.

In the 7th grade or thereabouts, K-Car sang that song into a naive former private-school boys ear, and likely changed his life on many fronts. Musical and otherwise. Eye-opening for sure.

@tcb: It’s been so long, I can’t even remember. . . .

@BJ: Ootch, I can’t think of who it is! That’s what I get for never going to reunions, not being on Facebook, and forgetting everyone’s names.

Oh, and a former volleyball player of yours is now teaching band in Beaver Dam—finally a home base after hopping around GB schools.

Funny…the girl in your class has the same name of my former VB player. It only took me 30 minutes of internet research to figure that one out…but that wasn’t the point. Good for Mouse, glad she’s doing well cuz she is a great one, and WHAT an awesome song.

And if you didn’t feel old already…Junior is going to have Viv for English next year. I have a few papers he can turn in if he needs extra credit. Hope you’re not reading the comments Viv!
