I Hold On So Nervously

To Me And My Drink

I Wish It Was Cooling Me. …”

“…But, So Far Has Not Been Good

Its Been Shitty

And, I Feel Awkward As I Should. …”

“…This Club Has Got To Be

The Most Pretentious Thing

Since I Thought You And Me. …”

“…Well, I Am Imagining

A Dark Lit Place

Or, Your Place

Or, My Place. …”

“…Well, Im Not Paralyzed

But, I Seem To Be Struck By You

I Want To Make You Move

Because, Youre Standing Still

If Your Body Matches What Your Eyes Can Do

Youll Probably Move Right Through Me On My Way To You! …”

So…

…Why Is This Song…

PARALYZER

by FINGER ELEVEN

…Making Me Smile So Much, This Morning???

Welllll…

…I Was Invited To Go Out, Last Night.

I Was Invited To Go Out, To Meet-Up At The Local Dance-Club/Bar Place Thingy To Have A Few Drinks, And To Mingle With The Crowd.

Sadly, That’s Why I Had To Turn Down The Offer.

I Wanted To Go Out.

I Really Did.

In Fact, I’ll Admit I Really REALLY Wanted To Go.

So Much So, In Fact, I Originally Said I WOULD Go.

But, Then I Started Thinking About The Large Crowd And That Meager Club.

And, Well, I Slowly Started To FREAK-OUT.

๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I Simply Can’t Handle It, Anymore.

I Mean, I Can Handle Cramped Spaces.

That’s Not My Issue.

As I’ve Told You Before, I Once Spent Three (3) Days In Solitary Confinement During My Navy Days.

So, No, It’s Not The Small Spaces I Can’t Handle.

It’s The Large Amount Of People In The Close-Quarters That I Can’t Handle.

The Last Time I Was Inside That Club, I Had A Panic-Attack.

There Were Just So Many People.

I Felt Like I, Literally, Could Not Breathe.

I Ended-Up Tearing-Ass Out Of That Place So Fast It Was Frightening.

I’ve Never Been Back Inside That Club.

Not Once.

So…

Why Am I Smiling?!?

I’m Smiling, Because The Guy In The Song Could EASILY Be ME.

He’s Having A Shitty Time.

He Doesn’t Really Want To Be There.

He Feels Awkward.

Later On In The Song, He Says…

“…I Hold Out For One More Drink

Before I Think

Im Looking Too Desperately. …”

Let Me Just Say Right Now, I Know EXACTLY How He Feels.

This Song Makes Me Smile So Much, Because I Can Totally Put Myself In His Place AND I Can Totally Understand Where He’s Coming From.

I’ll Also Admit I’m A Touch Disappointed In Myself For NOT Going Out To Spend Time With My Friend.

I Had The Chance To Show Him He’s More Important Than My Personal Issues…

…And, I Totally Blew That One Out My Ass.

I Know He Won’t Hold It Against Me, As He Already Knows My Feelings Toward The Bar Scene.

But, I Also Know He’s (probably) A Little Disappointed In Me.

That’s Totally MY BAD, My Peeps, I Know.

BUT, I’m Pretty Damned Decent At Making-Up For My Disappointments.

What Can I Say, I’ve Had A LOT Of Practice In That Field.

And, As A Final Admission, I’ll Tell You That My Friend Is VERY Attractive.

STRIKINGLY Attractive…

…Just Like The Other Person Being Talked About In The Song.

Strikingly Attractive People

+

Alcohol

+

Bradley

???

Nah.

That NEVER Works-Out Tooo Well.

So Many Reasons To Stay Home…

…Just Like The Guy In The Song Wanted To Do…

…And, Therefore, So Many Reasons To Be Smiling About This Song…

FINGER ELEVENs

PARALYZER

…This Morning.

I Think I’ll Just Settle For A Lunch Date.

Somewhere Uncrowded.

Somewhere Quite.

Somewhere I Can Have An Actual Conversation With The Other Person WITHOUT The Shitty Dance-Club-Soundtrack In The Background.

Sound Better To You???

GREAT!!!

Sounds Better To ME, Also!!!

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

The Song Stuck In My Head: “I FEEL LOVED” by DEPECHE MODE (2001)

It’s The Dark Night Of My Soul

And Temptation’s Taking Hold

But Through The Pain And The Suffering

Through The Heartache And Trembling

I FEEL LOVED

I FEEL LOVED.

<<<<<<<***>>>>>>>

The SongI FEEL LOVEDIs Yet Another FAVE-Of-FAVES From The 2001 DEPECHE MODE AlbumEXICTER!!!

<<<<<<<***>>>>>>>

As The Darkness Closes In

In My Head I Hear Whispering

Questioning And Beckoning

But I’m Not Taken In

I FEEL LOVED

I FEEL LOVED.

<<<<<<<*** *** *** *** *** *** ***>>>>>>>

<<<<<<<>>>>>>>

While Out-&-About On My Morning Walk…

…I Listened To Many MANY Quality Jams…

…The Bulk Of Which I’ve Already Discussed With Y’all.

HOWEVER…

…This Song…

I FEEL LOVED

by DEPECHE MODE

…Was The Final Song Of The Walk…

…And The One Song That’s Been On The Ole Brain, Since.

I Knew I Hadn’t Blogged About It…

…And I Felt That Was Doing This Song A Serious Injustice.

I FEEL LOVED

…Is An Exceptional Little Number…

…And One Of My Faves From A Personal Favorite Album…

EXCITER

!!! !!!! !!!

I Sincerely LOVE The Lyrics…

…The Beat Of The Song Is VERY Catchy…

…And It Totally Brings Back Some Fond Memories From My Clubbing Days.

You See, My Peeps…

…The Dance Clubs USED To Allow Patrons To Bring In Some Of Their Music…

…And Getting It Played Only Depended On Your DJ For The Night.

In 2001 AND 2002

…I Would Tote Around The “EXCITER” Album…

…In The Hopes Of Getting One Of Three Songs Played.

DREAM ON

&

THE DEAD OF NIGHT

…Were Two Said Three Songs.

The Third Was…

…Of Course…

I FEEL LOVED

!!! !!!! !!!

Some People May Scoff At The Thought Of Tipping A DJ $10 Just To Play Some Songs.

I…

…On The Other Hand…

…Never Had Any Issues With That Practice.

Whatever Money I Spent On Getting My Tunes Played Was Less Money Being Spent On The Booze-Choice Of The Night.

Trust Me, Kiddies…

…It Was A Totally Acceptable Trade-Off.

๐Ÿ˜‰

ANYWAY

…I Sincerely Hope Y’all Have A Damned Decent FRIDAY, Fo SHO!

Please Take Care…

…Be Good…

…See Me Soon…

…And…

…Talk To Me Sooner!!!
