“Wise Men Say… …Only Fools Rush In…” ((“CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE” by ELVIS PRESLEY (1961)))

Elvis_-_Rock_a_Hula (via Wikipedia)

“…But, I Can’t Help…

…Falling In Love With You…”

“…Shall I Stay?…

…Would It Be A Sin?…

…If I Can’t Help…

…Falling In Love With You?…”

“…Like A River Flows…

…Surely To The Sea…

…Darling, So It Goes…

…Some Things Are Meant To Be…”

“…Take My Hand…

…Take My Whole Life, Too…

…For I Can’t Help…

…Falling In Love With You. …”

ElvisPresleyAlohafromHawaii (via Wikipedia)… … … … … … …

So, Yeah, I’ve Been On A Bit Of An ELVIS Kick, Recently.

I Mean, Can You Really Blame Me?

The Man Was A Master Of His Craft, Fo SHO.

His Music Never Fails To Make Me Smile…

…And, Sometimes, That’s Really All I’m Looking For In Some Quality Tunage.

This Particular Song…

CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE

…Is A Prime-Cut-Example Of Said Quality Tunage.

This Was Actually One Of The Very First ELVIS Songs I’d Ever Heard, And It Has Continued To Be A Personal Favorite Since Early Childhood.

To My Friends, I Was Always A Bit Weird In This Regard.

While They Were Busy Listening To The Jams Of The Day…

…The Current Top 40, And So On…

…I Was Busy Listening To The Songs Of My Parent’s Youth.

While Most Rebelled And Shied Away From Their Parents Music…

…I Embraced It.

This Song Has Been Stuck In My Head For A Little While Now…

…And Y’all Know How I Operate.

When Something Is Locked Into My Brain, I Have But One True Outlet:

I Blog About It.

I Honestly Don’t Have A Ton To Say About This Little Number…

…Aside From How Brilliantly Beautiful It Truly Is.

It’s A Song That Sincerely Will Stick With You, As It Has With Me My Entire Life.

It Is, By Far, One Of The Most Wonderfully Simple Songs Ever To Spring Forth From The World That Is ELVIS PRESLEY…

…And It Is A Song I’m Very Happy To Share With Y’all, This Morning.

I Hope You Do Enjoy It, My Peeps.

Perhaps You Won’t Love It As Much As I Do…

…But, It’s Very Hard To Scoff At.

A True-Blue-Classic If Ever There Was One.

Take Care, And Be Good, My Peeps.

Much Love To You All.

I’m Sure We’ll Have Much More To Discuss As The Year Rolls On…

…But, I Just Had To Share This One With You.

ENJOY, My Peeps, ENJOY!!!

๐Ÿ˜€

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

Ending The Summer Of Life-Support With An Amazing Song: DEPECHE MODE’s Cover Of “SO CRUEL” !!!

We Crossed The Line

Who Pushed Who Over?

It Doesnt Matter To You

It Matters To Me.

Were Cut Adrift

Were Still Floating.

Im Only HanginOn

To Watch You Go Down

My Love.

I Disappeared In You

You Disappeared From Me.

I Gave You Everything You Ever Wanted

It Wasnt What You Wanted.

The Men Who Love You

You Hate The Most.

They Pass Right Through You

Like A Ghost.

They Look For You

But Your Spirits In The Air.

Baby, Youre Nowhere.

Oh Ooo Oh

Love, You Say In Love Their Are No Rules.

Oh Ooo Oh

Sweetheart, Youre SO CRUEL. …”

DEPECHE MODE

Alright, Myย  Peeps, I Totally Admit I’ve Never Been The Biggest Fan Of Cover-Songs.

Occasionally, However, One Will Pop-Up.

Those Rare Few Are Generally Versions I End-Up Enjoying Much More Than The Original.

It, Honestly, Doesn’t Happen Often At All.

But, In Regard To This Particular Song…

SO CRUEL

…I Prefer This Version 10-Fold Over The Original.

Perhaps My Love Of All Things DEPECHE MODE Has Clouded My Judgment?

Nah.

I Don’t Think So.

๐Ÿ˜‰

As I’ve Said…

…This Has Been The Summer Of “Life-Support” For “You Jivin’ Me, Turkey?”…

…And That Is Now Coming To An End.

It Has Been A Wonderful/Horrid Summer…

…Loaded With Tons Of UPS And DOWNS.

I Haven’t Been Working Very Much On The Blog, Aside Of Putting Pen-To-Paper And Writing-Out Some Ideas For Things To Work On.

And Now, As Of This Morning, I Feel Like I’m Ready To Start Getting Back Into The Swing Of Things.

I Hope The Summer Months Have Treated Y’all Very Well, My Peeps.

And, I Sincerely Hope You’re Ready For Me To Get Back To Work.

I May Be A Tad Rusty…

…But I’m Sure I’ll Be Able To Manage Just Fine.

No Worries, Kiddies.

No Worries.

“ROAD TO NOWHERE” by TALKING HEADS (1985): A Song That Makes Me Smile!

Well We Know Where We’re Goin’…

…But We Don’t Know…

…Where We’ve Been…

…And We Know What We’re Knowin’…

…But We Can’t Say…

…What We’ve Seen…

…And We’re Notย Little Children…

…And We Know…

…What We Want…

…And The Future Is Certain…

…Give Us Time To…

…Work It Out. ..

ROAD TO NOWHEREIs Totally Wonderful Song From The 1985 TALKING HEADS AlbumLITTLE CREATURES!!!

…We’re On A Road To Nowhere…

…Come On Inside…

…Takin’ That Ride To Nowhere…

…We’ll Take That Ride…

…I’m Feelin’ Okay This Morning…

…And You Know…

…We’re On A Road To Paradise…

…Here We Go…

…Here We Go…

The 1985 Single Album ForROAD TO NOWHERE By TALKING HEADS !!!

.<.>.<.>.

<.>

I Awoke This Morning In The Mood For Some Quality Jams From…

TALKING HEADS

…My OTHER Favorite Band Of All-Time!!!

If You Thought People Gave Me Odd Looks For Loving DEPECHE MODE

…Then You Should Have Seen/Heard Them When I’d Pop On My TALKING HEADS Tunes.

๐Ÿ˜‰

I Learned Very VERY Quickly That Most Peeps My Age Simply Didn’t Dig Their Music At All.

And Ya Know What, Kiddies…

…That’s Perfectly Fine With Me.

I’ve ALWAYS Preferred To Look At It In The Lighter-Vein Of…

"Those Fools Don't Know What They're Missin', Fo Flippin' SHO!"

What Do You Think?

Am I Out-Of-Line?

Or, Are We On The Same Page?

I’m Promise I’m Hoping For The Latter!

๐Ÿ˜‰

Now…

…I LOVE Me Some TALKING HEADS

…And While There Are Many MANY Jams Of Theirs I Truly LOVE And ENJOY…

…This Song…

ROAD TO NOWHERE

…Off Of The Album…

LITTLE CREATURES

…Just Stood-Out To Me, Today.

Most Folks Who Happen To Be TALKING HEADS Fans Seem To Feel Their Music Really Started Going Downhill Following The Huge Success Of The Live Concert Album…

STOP MAKING SENSE

…And, To An Extent, They’re Correct.

Most Of Their Greatest Jams DID Come-Out Before That Album.

HOWEVER…

…That Doesn’t Mean Everything That Followed It Was A Pure Crap, Ya Know?!

And If We’re Discussing The BEST They Had To Offer AFTER That Album…

ROAD TO NOWHERE

…Would Rank At The Very VERY Tippy-Tip-Top, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

It’s A Jam That Takes Me Back To My Childhood…

…And Does So Without Much Effort.

ROAD TO NOWHERE

…Was The Very First Song By TALKING HEADS I Had The Pleasure Of Hearing OTHER THAN The Tracks Off Of The “STOP MAKING SENSE” Album.

It Quickly Became A Personal Favorite…

…And It Remains So To This Very Day.

I Remember It Even More-So Because Of It’s Wonderfully ODD/CRAZY Music Video.

---> (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWtCittJyr0) <---

((That’s A Link To The Video On The Ole YouTube If You’re In The Mood For It.))

๐Ÿ˜€

ANYWAY…

…I Sure Do Hope Y’all Have An Amazing Day.

The Weather Is Acceptable Outside Right Now…

…So I Think It’s Time For Yours Truly To Pop His Sneakers On And Go For A Little Walk-About.

Please Take Care Of You For Me, My Peeps.

I Shall Holla At Y’all Later On, I’m Sure!!!

Until Then…

Over This Past Weekend, I Was Introduced To The Band…

PHOENIX

…And This Song…

HOLDIN ON TOGETHER

…Which I Immediately Fell In Love/Lust With.

It’s Perky.

It’s Quirky.

It’s Catchy.

It Makes Me Smile.

Can’t Ask For Much More From Your Music, Right???

RIGHT!!!

HOLDIN ON TOGETHER

…Was Released On The Album…

ALPHABETICAL

…In 2004.

I Know I’d Heard This Little Tune On The Radio At Some Point, And I Liked It, But Knew Absolutely Nothing About It, Nor The Band Performing It.

Now, Well, I Simply Can’t Get Enough Of It.

I’m Unsure How Many Times I’ve Listened To It In The Past Few Days, But I Know It’s A Metric-Ass-Ton.

But, For Me, That’s Just How I Roll.

I Find Something New That I Greatly Enjoy, And I Go For It.

If It’s Song, I Listen To It Over And Over.

If It’s A Movie, I’ll Likely Watch It Multiple Times In A Short Span Of Days.

If It’s A Book, I’ll Read It All The Way Through, And Then Do So Again.

I Get On My Kicks, Ya Know?!

SURE YOU DO!!

A Lot Of You Are Exactly The Same.

I’m Just Sure Of That.

I Just Hope Y’all Enjoy This Little Number.

This Song Is Now Permanently Linked With A Special Someone In My World.

Every Time I Hear It, I Think About Him.

Sometimes, That’s A Wonderful Thing.

Sometimes, That’s A Horrid Thing.

It Really Depends On My Mood, To Be Honest.

Nevertheless, I Continue To Listen To It…

…And Love It…

…And Enjoy It.

Period.

Feelings Are Funny Things, And It’s Crazy How They Can Be Linked To Something Like This.

But, That’s Life.

Right???

RIGHT!!!

I Included A Link To The Song, So PLEASE Give It A Listen.

Let Me Know What You Think.

You May Not Enjoy It As Much As I Do…

…Or You May Enjoy It Even More.

You’ll Just Have To Give It A Go And Find Out!!!

Ready For A Musical Adventure???

AWESOME!!!

Then Let’s Go!!!

Have A Grand Day, Kiddies.

Take Care AND Be Good.

What The Hell Is Going On Around Here?!?

Honestly, My Peeps, So So Very Much Has Been Going On.

Life Has Been Quirky…

…Odd…

…Frustrating…

…Wonderful…

…Horrible…

…Exciting…

…Trying…

…Oh, So Very Very Trying.

BUT…

…I’ve Been Weathering It All Quite Well, I Would Say.

I Know It Has Been A While Since We’ve All Shot-The-Shit…

…Kicked-It-Back…

…Talked-Some-Shop…

…BUT…

…I Sincerely Promise There Have Been Plenty Of Quality Reasons.

You See, My Peeps, I’ve Been Trying Very Very Hard To Have A Life.

It’s Not Something I’m Really Accustomed To.

Like, At All.

But, I Have Been Trying.

I Got Myself A Man.ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

I Got Myself A Job.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

I Got Myself Fired From Said Job Before It Really Got Going.ย  ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I’ve Been Playing The Helpful/Dutiful Son.

I’ve Been Playing The Helpful/Dutiful Grandson.

I’ve Been Playing The Helpful/Dutiful Boyfriend.

I’ve Been Playing For The Sake Of Playing.

I’ve Been Having FUN For A Freakin’ Change, And Trying To Enjoy Every Moment Of It.

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sadly, It Hasn’t All Been Fun And Games.

I’ve Had Multiple Family Members Die Over The Past Few Months.

I’ve Suffered Through A Couple Bouts Of Fairly Extreme Illness.

Life Has Really Been Bringing The Heat, But Totally Keeping Me Honest With A Steady Supply Of Curve-Balls.

Sheesh, I Tell You.

Sheesh, Indeed.

:\

I’m Writing This Today Because I’m Looking To Begin Again.

I Miss Working On This Blog A Bundle, Though I Admit I Could Have Come Back To Y’all A Lot Sooner.

But, I Chose To Continue Being A “Reblog-Whore” And Just Let Things Ride.

I Still Plan To Be A “Reblog-Whore”, But I’ll Be Injecting Myself Into Things Whenever I Can.

๐Ÿ˜‰

TODAY…

…APRIL 10TH…

…Is My Birthday.

Everyone Always Asks The Same Question:

"DO YOU FEEL ANY OLDER?"

Honestly, My Peeps, Yes Yes YES I DO.

Period.

I Know I’m Not THAT Old, But I’m Old Enough.

Old Enough To Realize I Have To Continue Trying To Have A Life.

Old Enough To Understand How Important It Is To Continue Onward.

Old Enough To Feel Old Enough.

I’m Tired, My Peeps.

I’m So Very Tired.

But, There Are Still Duties To Perform…

…And Life Goes On.

I’m Going To Leave Y’all For Now.

But, I Do Promise To Be Back Again.

I’ve Been Writing A Lot.

Pen-To-Paper, Ya Know?

Perhaps I’ll Be Sharing More Of That With Y’all.

I Plan To.

So Let Us All See If I Actually Make That Happen.

I Really Do Plan To.

As I Exit (for now) I’m Going To Leave You With A Song.

A Song That Has Quickly Become A Personal Favorite.

DEPECHE MODE Has Just Released Their Latest Album, DELTA MACHINE, And I’m Totally In LOVE/LUST With It.

Depeche_Mode_-_Delta_Machine (via Wikipedia)

The Song For Today Is…

SOOTHE MY SOUL

…And It’s A Real Kicker!

I Sincerely Hope Y’all Enjoy It.

I Find It Simply Exceptional!!!

Please Take Care, My Peeps.

I’ll Write More When I’m Able.

Until Then…

…Take Care…

…Be Good…

…See Me Soon…

…And Talk To Me Sooner!!!

Much Love To Y’all, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

“…There Were Moments Of Gold… There Were Flashes Of Light… There Were Things I’d Never Do Again… But Then They Always Seemd Right…” –PANDORA’S BOX (“It’s All Coming Back To Me Now” (1989))

“…There Were Nights Of Sacred Pleasure

It Was More Than Any Laws Allow

Baby, Baby…”

ITS ALL COMING BACK TO ME NOWWas Originally Released By The Band PANDORAS BOX On The AlbumORIGINAL SINIn 1989 !!!

“…If I Kiss You Like This

And, If You Whisper Like That

It Was Lost Long Ago

But, Its All Coming Back To Me

If You Want Me Like This

And, If You Need Me Like That

It Was Dead Long Ago

But, Its All Coming Back To Me

Its So Hard To Resist

And, Its All Coming Back To Me

I Can Barely Recall

But, ITS ALL COMING BACK TO ME NOW! …”

… … … … … … …

๐Ÿ™‚

Alright, My Peeps…

…I Know, I Know…

…Call-Out The Lame Police On Me, This Morning.

I Know, I Know.

But, Hell, It Happens To Everyone At Some Point…

…Right???

RIGHT!!!

Now, I’m Not Going To Try To Defend My Position On This Song…

ITS ALL COMING BACK TO ME NOW

by PANDORAS BOX

…I’m Really Just Going To Let The Song And The Lyrics Speak For Themselves.

I Awoke With This Song Playing In My Ear, As I Managed To Fall Asleep (again) With My MP3Player Blaring Some Of My Favorite Jams.

I Know There Are Other Versions Of This Little Number…

…But, Honestly, This Is The One I Remember Most…

…And, This Is The One I Enjoy Most.

Again, I Know, I’m Lame.

My Bad, My Peeps.

My Bad, Indeed.

But, When I Awoke, With This Song Cranking Away, I Simply Felt Powerless.

I Was Caught Within Its Grasp.

So, I Listened To It.

And Then Again.

And Again.

Finally, Before Things Got Out Of Hand, I Knew The Only Way I’d Get It Out Of My Head Was To Blog ’bout It.

It At Least Had The Most Potential For Successfully Getting It Unstuck.

Sadly (or happily depending on your view) It Isn’t Working.

I’m Still Listening.

I’m Still Singing Along.

I’m Still Wishing I Could Properly Say All I’d Like To Say, Right Now.

But, I Know I Can’t.

I’ll Just Say This Is A Song That Feeds My Happiness…

…And Makes Me Smile To (apparently) No End.

Yeah, It’s A Cheesy Song.

Yeah, It’s Probably Not The Best Version.

Yeah, I Don’t Really Give A Rat’s Ass Either Way.

What I Can (and will) Say, Is That I’m In Such A Quality Place, Mentally And Emotionally, Right Now.

Feelings I Haven’t Felt In Seemingly Forever Continue To Bubble-Up To The Surface.

I Feel Good.

I Feel Happy.

I Feel Cared For.

I Feel Connected.

How On Hell’s Half-Acre Could I Even Consider Letting Those Feelings Slip Away?

EXACTLY, My Peeps, I CAN’T.

I WON’T.

Said Feelings Simply FEEL Amazing To Me.

I’m Content, Kiddies.

I’m Finally Content.

And, While This May Not Last, I’m Not Going To Knock-It.

I’ve Wanted To Feel This Way For So SO LOOOOONG.

How Could I Give It Up?!?

Again…

…I CAN’T And I WON’T.

Period.

This Song May Be Total Cheese-Balls…

…But It DOES FIT With My Current Mental And Emotional States.

That’s Good Enough To Make It Blog-Worthy, Right???

RIGHT!!!

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

Please Enjoy Your Day, My Peeps.

The Weekend Is Upon Us.

Let’s Make It A Good One.

We Deserve That.

We Totally, TOTALLY DO, My Peeps.

Totally.

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

“Feeling Like A Freak On A Leash…”

“…((You Wanna See The Light))…

Feeling Like I Have No Release

…((So Do I))…

How Many Times Have I Felt Diseased?…

…((You Wanna See The Light))…

Nothing In My Life Is Free

Is Free…”

“…Sometimes I Cannot Take This Place

Sometimes It’s My Life I Cant Taste

Sometimes I Cannot Feel My Face

Youll Never See Me Fall From Grace…”

“…Something Takes A Part Of Me

You And I Were Meant To Be

A Cheap Fu*k For Me To Lay

What Can I Tell You About This Song…

FREAK ON A LEASH

by KORN

???

Hmm.

Well.

Hmm.

I Suppose I Can’t Really Say To Much.

This Is An Instance Where It’s Best If I Keep My Mouth Shut.

BUT…

FREAK ON A LEASH

…Is A Very Awesome…

…Very Special Song In My World.

It Holds So Much Of A Deeper Meaning.

And, Honestly, I’d Love To Say A Whole Lot Right Now.

But, I’m Holding Back Because I Don’t Think It Would Be Taken Tooooo Well.

I’ve Been A Huge Fan Of This Song Since I First Saw The Music Video In 1999, While I Was In The Navy.

Upon Hearing It Back Then, I Was An Instant Fan.

Period.

Sooo…

…Today I’m Sharing It With Y’all.

I Know, I Know…

…The Band KORN Isn’t Everyone’s Cup-O-Tea.

Then Again, A Lot Of The Music I Write About Isn’t For Everyone.

There Are Likely More People Whom Hate This Song Than I Really Realize.

But, For Now, I Don’t Care.

I Had To Get This Song Out Of My Head, As I’ve Been Listening To It A LOT A LOT Over The Past Two-Weeks.

And You Know Me…

…I Get Things Out Of My Head By Way Of My Bloggin’ing.

So…

…Here I Am…

…Bloggin’ing ’bout It.

I Sure Hope This Works, To Be Honest.

Perhaps It Will.

Perhaps It Won’t.

But, I’m Still Trying.

That’s All One Can Really Do, Right?!

Try Try TRY AGAIN!!!

We Shall See, My Peeps.

We Shall See, Indeed.

๐Ÿ˜€

PLEASE Have A Damned Decent Day.

And, I Sure Hope Y’all Have A Wonderful Weekend!!!

L8r L8r, My Tater-Tots!!!

๐Ÿ˜‰

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

I’m Not Really Sure What To Think…

…I Just Know I’ve Maintained My Good Mood.

I’ve Been This Way Since Friday.

And, Honestly, I Like It.

๐Ÿ˜€

I’m Not Going To Discuss The Details, As Those Are Mine To Delight In.

I Just Ask That You Be Delighted With Me.

I’ve Been Taking Some Chances, And They’re Paying-Off.

No Risk, No Reward, Right???

RIGHT!!!

And Now…

…Now I’m In The Holding Pattern.

The Classic Game Of Hurry-Up And Wait.

The Thing Is, This Time, I’m Not Sure If I Mind It One Bit.

It’s A Jumble Of Odd Feelings.

I’m Anxious.

I’m Nervous.

I’m Buzzing-About.

It Just Feels Odd.

Not Bad, My Peeps, But Odd.

And, Right Now, Odd Feels Pretty Damned Wonderful.

I’ve Had Good Moments In Life.

I’ve Had Bad Moments In Life.

But, I’m Relishing In These Odd Moments.

Am I Being Foolish???

Honestly, I Don’t Think So.

I Feel Confident.

I’m Not Sure Of What’s Going To Happen…

…But I’m Still Confident.

I’m Confident SOMETHING Is Going To Happen.

That’s The Only Answer I Can Give Where I’m Assured 100% Victory.

I Know, I Know…

…No Risk, No Reward.

Well, In This Instance, I’m Betting On The House.

The House Always Wins, Right???

No, Really, Is That Right???

I’m Generally Not A Gambling Man.

Only When I Want Something Bad Enough, Ya Know?!?

Well, Right Now, I Want Something So Bad I Can Taste It.

I Can Taste It, And It’s Sweet.

It’s So Very VERY Sweet.

But, I’m Going To Have To Work For It.

I’m Going To Have To Work Very VERY Hard.

But, To Me, It’s Worth It.

๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ve Been Listening To A Lot Of Music This Past Day/Night.

YOURE ONLY HUMAN (SECOND WIND)

by BILLY JOEL

…Is The Song I’ve Listened To The Most.

It’s Very Fitting, Right Now.

Give It A Listen.

I’m Sure You’ve All Been In A Similar Situation As The Person In The Song.

I’ve Blogged About The Song Before…

…But It’s Very VERY Relevant For Me At This Particular Time.

Like The Man Says…

“…Youve Been Keeping To Yourself These Days

…’Cause Youre Thinking Everythings Gone Wrong

Sometimesย  You Just Wanna Lay Down And Die

That Emotion Can Be So Strong

But, Hold On

…’Til That Ole Second Wind Comes Along. …”

He’s Got It Exactly Right, My Peeps.

Spot On, BILLY JOEL, Spot On.

Well Played, Sir, Well Played.

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

I Do Promise, My Peeps, That I’ll Keep Y’all Posted As Best As I Can.

For Now…

…For Right Now…

…Just Know I Am Happy.

Whether That Feeling Lasts, Or Not, Remains To Be Seen.

But, For Now, I’m Rollin’ With It.

Sometimes, That’s Good Enough.

Right???

RIGHT!!!

The Song Stuck In My Head??? “I Should Have Learned This Lesson Long Ago… …That Friends And Lovers Always Come And Go…” –QUARTERFLASH’s “FIND ANOTHER FOOL” (1981)

QuarterFlash (1981) (via Amazon.com)

FIND ANOTHER FOOLIs A Hot HOT Jam From QUARTERFLASH‘s Self-Titled 1981 Debut Album !!!

“…Now You Claim

That Everythings Okay

Well, Ive Got Just One Thing To Say

Why Dont You

Find Another

((Find Another!))

FIND ANOTHER FOOL To Love You

Find Another

((Find Another!))

FIND ANOTHER FOOL To Love You

Find Another

Find Another

FIND ANOTHER FOOL To Love You

Too Love You

Find Another. …”

\\\///

Alright, My Peeps…

…Let Me Quickly Say, I Don’t Just Listen To This Song…

FIND ANOTHER FOOL

by QUARTERFLASH

…When Someone Has Treated Me Foolishly And I Wanna Vent.

No.

I Also Listen To This Song When I’m Dwelling Upon MY Foolishness.

We’ve All Been Foolish In Matters Of Love At One Point Or Another.

Most Especially In Matters Of Love, Honestly.

In Fact…

…It’s In Matters Of Love Where I’ve Suffered Through Many MANY Bad Experiences In My 30’ish’ish Years.

And, I’ve Done So ((ALMOST)) Totally Because Of MY Personal Foolishness.

Then Again, Isn’t That Generally How It Goes?

Is That How It Always Goes For You?

How About You??

And You, There, In The Back???

Yes, And YOU, Also?!?!?

Yeah.

That’s Kinda What I’d Figured.

Our Favorite Game As Human-Being’s Is LOVE.

Always Has Been.

Some Will Quip, Its Not A Game!”

To Those People, I Say Good On Ya.”

I Also Say, If You Dont Think It’s A Game, Then Youve Likely Been Hurt, Or Have Hurt Someone Else, While Playing And You Are/Were Pissed About It.”

To Be Honest, My Peeps, I Don’t Know What Else To Call LOVE.

It’s Always Felt Like A Game.

It Has Losers.

It Has Winners.

It Has First Time Players.

It Has Umpteenth Time Players.

It Has Unskilled Players.

It Has Highly Skilled Players.

It Has The Sheer Bliss Of A Solid Victory.

It Has The Horrid Dejection Of A Terrible Loss.

In Short…

…If It Ain’t A Game…

…What Is It?!?

That’s A Question I Sincerely Struggle With.

Honestly, As I Said, I Don’t Know What Else To Call It.

I Was Hoping To Get A Hand From Y’all, In That Regard.

That’s What We’re Here For, Correct?!

A Learning Experience.

I Know That’s A Big Reason I’m Here.

It’s Not The Only Reason, But It’s An Important One.

Fo Sho???

FO SHO!!!

๐Ÿ˜‰ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

LOVE, Whether A Thought OR A Feeling, Perpetuates Foolishness.

We Do So Many Foolish Things Whilst Playing Along.

We Do Things.

Things We Either WANT Or DON’T WANT To Do, All Because Of What We Feel, Or Think We Feel, For Someone, Or Something, Else.

Y’all Know I’m Not Slippin’ You Any Jive.

I’m Callin’ It Like It Is.

The Problem With This Wondrous, Beautiful, Vile, Evil, Amazing Thing We Call Love Is This:

How Do We Know When Were Playing, And How Do We Know When Were Being Played???”

Yeah.

Exactly My Point, My Peeps.

Honestly, You Don’t Know.

You Don’t Know Until Something Eventful Happens.

He Said YES!” ๐Ÿ˜€

He Said NO!” ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

He Said MAYBE SO!” ๐Ÿ˜

Any Way It Goes, You Never Know Until Something Happens.

You Never Know Until The Proof Is There.

You Never Know Until It’s Tangible.

And, Even Then, Do You Really Know?

You Think You Do.

Is That Enough?

Sometimes, That Has To Be Enough.

Sometimes, That’s All We Really Have.

Right???

RIGHT!!!

My Advice?

You Kids Just Be Good.

Try Not To Hurt Anyone, Especially Yourself.

Try Not To Do Anything Toooooooooo Foolish, Ya Hear Me?!?

Good Game… …Good Game.
