Oh, man, y'all are bringing up some good ones

Okay, so I'm not *only* country -- I'm having flashbacks to the 80s - I can remember when Kenny Loggins and Chicago were the give all and end of love songs. When Berlin and Blondie were hot and Madonna was the singer that made Momma get all worried about her girls growing up too fast. There's something about those songs that sends me back to making out in the back seat off an old chevy, the moon looking bright as all get out.

Then there were the hair bands and their power ballads. Angry and squeezed into spandex and leather, enough hairspray to single-handedly deplete the ozone layer - I tell you what, between them, the pop singers' stubble and the punk boys' attitude? I was *so* lost. Still, I can look at Jon Bon Jovi now and tell everyone I had great taste, even back then.

Of course, I'm older now. I'm pretty sure I couldn't keep up with "She Bop" for hours on end... ;-)

So, the question is -- it's a hot night, you've got a hot man in tight jeans giving you the eye and you've got one song to tell him what you need and convince him to give it to you. What song do you pick?

I guess "Slow Hand" by The Pointer Sisters (later recorded by Conway Twitty). An oldie but goodie...here are some lyrics:

"I want a man with a slow hand
I want a lover with an easy touch
I want somebody who will spend some time
Not come and go in a heated rush
I want somebody who will understand
When it comes to love, I want a slow hand."

hmmm...tough question. How about "Physical" by Olivia Newton John. Oops, I'm showing my age again. Or, maybe "Lets Get It On" by Marvin Gaye.

Conway Twitty's I'D JUST LOVE TO LAY YOU DOWN:

There's a lot of ways of sayin' what I want to say to you,
There's songs and poems and promises and dreams that might be true.
But I wont talk of stary skies or moonlight on the ground,
I'll come right out and tell you, I'd just love to lay you down.

Lay ya down and softly whisper pretty love words in your ear.
Lay ya down and tell you all the things a woman loves to hear.
I'll let you know how much it means just havin' you around.
Oh darlin', how I'd love to lay you down.

You look so fine

I want to break your heart
And give you mine
You're taking me over

It's so insane
You've got me tethered and chained
I hear your name
And I'm falling over

I'm not like all the other girls
I can't take it like the other girls
I won't share it like the other girls
That you used to know

You look so fine

Knocked down
Cried out
Been down just to find out
I'm through
Bleeding for you

I'm open wide
I want to take you home
We'll waste some time
You're the only one for me

You look so fine
I'm like the desert tonight
Leave her behind
If you want to show me

I'm not like all the other girls
I won't take it like the other girls
I won't fake it like the other girls
That you used to know

You're taking me over
Over and over
I'm falling over
Over and over

You're taking me over
Drown in me one more time
Hide inside me tonight
Do what you want to do
Just pretend happy end
Let me know let it show

I Touch Myself by The Divinyls *g*

I love myself
I want you to love me
When I'm feelin' down
I want you above me
I search myself
I want you to find me
I forget myself
I want you to remind me

Chorus:
I don't want anybody else
When I think about you
I touch myself
I don't want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

You're the one who makes me happy honey
You're the sun who makes me shine
When you're around I'm always laughing
I want to make you mine

I close my eyes
And see you before me
Think I would die
If you were to ignore me
A fool could see
Just how much I adore you
I get down on my knees
I'd do anything for you

Chorus

I love myself
I want you to love me
When I'm feelin' down
I want you above me
I search myself
I want you to find me
I forget myself
I want you to remind me

Chorus

I want you
I don't want anybody else
And when I think about you
I touch myself
Ooh, oooh, oooooh, aaaaaah

Chorus

Oh yeah! Gotta share this one.

I Like Them Big and Stupid
Julie Brown


When I need somethin' to help me unwind
I find a six foot baby with a one track mind
Smart guys are nowhere, they make demands
Give me a moron with talented hands
I go bar-hopping and they say last call
I start shopping for a Neanderthal

The bigger they come the harder I fall
In love 'til we're done then they're out in the hall

{Refrain}
I like 'em big and stupid
I like 'em big and real dumb
I like 'em big and stupid

What kind of guy does a lot for me
A Superman with a lobotomy
My fathers outa Harvard
My brothers outa Yale
But the guy I took home last night
Just got outa jail

The way he grabbed and threw me, ooh it really got me hot
But the way he growled and bit me, I hope he had his shots

The bigger they are the harder they'll work
I got a soft spot for a good lookin' jerk

{Refrain}

I met a guy, who drives a truck
He can't tell time but he sure can drive
I asked his name and he had to think
Could I have found the missing link
He's so stupid you know what he said
Well I forgot what he said, 'cause it was so stupid

The bigger they come the harder I fall
In love 'til we're done then they're out in the hall

{Refrain}

I like 'em big and stupid
I like 'em big and real dumb
