“Lightnin’ Strikes Again”, by Lou Christie. Google the lyrics to get a true appreciation of this song. Essentially Lou tells his girlfriend that he’ll marry her someday, but since she’s old enough to “know the makings of a man”, she should be patient for now while he kisses (etc.) every woman that moves because when “lightnin’ strikes again” he must do what a man must do. Great stuff! It still gets airplay!

5) “He Hit Me and It Felt Like a Kiss”, by the Crystals. The title says it all. Ironically, it was co-written by Carole King!


That's a good list!

 

I read somewhere that Sting heard a group sing Every Breath You Take  as a love song, said he couldn't quit laughing.

@nyadrn Yes it IS good to see you back on here! And yes, Blurred Lines is super creepy. According to Robin Thicke, the lyrics were written by Pharrell, which I was Unhappy to hear:

I was really surprised that Pharrell turned out to be the writer. Thicke says it's been misinterpreted. Maybe so, but an audience wouldn't have their perspective in mind just listening to the lyrics.

Oh my! I'd say it qualifies!! Interesting that I found two sets of lyrics on google search. The original version apparently caused quite a controversy when it was released. Then I found updated lyrics, thinking perhaps they reconsidered. Well, they did, and it got even worse!! Yikes!
