along with one of the DUMBEST songs ever written.
That was my Saturday night.
We went to the Irish pub again, but, instead of the wonderful service we had the first time, we were treated to service from a man who was so slow that I wanted to check for a pulse. Thirty seven minutes for a sandwich. Despite this, we will frequent this place again and again - the food is awesome and the atmosphere top notch. The best past of the night was the live music - the guy was great and I knew most of the songs, so I was able to sing along (at top volume - shut UP, it's an Irish pub and it was after 11 at night, so most people weren't even able to understand me. I know I can't sing, but apparently it doesn't matter at this type of establishment. Or so I was told. Personally, I think that they just needed someone to laugh at.)
On the way home, I was still in the singing mood, and so I flipped on the radio. I surfed the different channels until I came to what is arguably the stupidest song I've ever heard. "You don't have to say you love me" - Dusty Springfield. Talk about not having any self esteem - "you don't have to say you love me, just stay close at hand/you don't have to stay forever/I will understand. Believe me, believe me/I can't help but love you/but believe me, I'll never tie you down."
Huh? What a way to throw yourself at someone.
It was a GREAT song to sing at full blast with the windows down on the Interstate, though.
(There may or may not have been an Irish coffee involved in this story, but, alas, that element is never necessary for me to sing just like this.)
