The Song Stuck In My Head: “HE’LL HAVE TO GO” by JIM REEVES (1959)

…You Can’t Say The Words I Want To Hear…

…While You’re With Another Man. …

…Do You Want Me…

…Answer Yes Or No…

…Darling I Will Understand. …

…Put Your Sweet Lips…

…A Little Closer…

…To The Phone. …

…Let’s Pretend…

…That We’re Together…

…All Alone. …

…Way Down Low. …

…And You Can Tell…

Of All The Songs I Know…

…Why On Earth Is THIS SONG…

HE’LL HAVE TO GO

by JIM REEVES

…The Tune That’s Playing On Repeat In My Twisted Brain???

I Haven’t The Foggiest, My Peeps.

Yes…

…I Have Heard It Recently…

…So I’m Sure That’s The Beginning Of It…

…But WHY Today???

I Keep Singing It To Myself…

…Over…

…And Over…

…And Over And Over And Over AGAIN!!!

I’ve Known The Song…

…WORD For WORD…

…Since About The Age Of 9-Years-Old.

My Grandparents LOVED Them Some JIM REEVES

…And They Used To Play His Greatest Hits…

(on cassette of course)

…When We’d Go Out-And-About On A Drive.

Every Time We’d Go See My Aunts And Uncles…

…Maw Would Break-Out The JIM REEVES Tape…

…And We’d Just SING SING SING!!!

Thing Is…

…I Stopped Listening To It When I Found Out It Was Technically A Country Song.

I Hate Most Country Music, So It Only Seemed Right To Ditch The JIM REEVES, Ya Know???

However…

…Years Later…

…I Ended Up Owning A Copy Of…

JIM REEVES GREATEST HITS

…On CD.

And NOW…

HE’LL HAVE TO GO

…Is On My MP3Player.

WHY???

Well…

…As It Turns Out…

…My Hatred For Country Music Only Goes So Far.

The Song…

HE’LL HAVE TO GO

…Has Become A Part Of My Life.

It Brings To The Surface So So SO Many Fond Memories That It’s Impossible For Me To Ditch It Ever Again.

Like I Said, Though…

…I Haven’t The Foggiest As To WHY It’s Hitting Me So Hard Today.

But I Won’t Shy Away From It.

Even Though It’s Annoying To Have A Song On Perpetual-Repeat In My Brain…

…It Still Makes Me Smile When I Hear It.

And I Sincerely Love Love LOVE To Sing Along With It!!!

Go Figure.

πŸ˜‰

Hope You’re Enjoying Your FRIDAY EVE, My Peeps.

I’m Doin’ My Best To Do That Very Thing.

Results Are Mixed Thus Far…

…But That’s Acceptable.
