For some reason, the satellite radio causes me to notice song lyrics, and the lyrics to "For Your Love" are embarrassing:
For your love, I'd give you everything and more and that's for sureSo... diamonds, things, and more diamonds. He needs to work harder on that list of presents. And I don't have to pay so much attention to lyrics, but something about driving does that to me. Home again, I went to YouTube and searched for "For Your Love." Nice. But what really amused me was that the search brought up "Munchies For Your Love" by Bootsy Collins, a 1977 recording that I don't remember ever hearing before. (Here's the album: "Ahh the Name is Bootsy Baby.") I enjoyed that, and the singing style and the guitar (not the lyrics) reminded me of some of my son John's music. I sent him the link and he IM'd:
I'd bring you diamond rings and things right to your door
To thrill you with delight, I'd give you diamonds bright
I can see why you'd say that, but I wouldn't do that kind of bass.I hadn't noticed any of that, which just goes to show how different individual experience is, even when everyone's paying attention. I tend to get absorbed in lyrics, and the fact that it was just 2 chords over and over would have eternally escaped me. John did notice the song's title though, as he later IM'd "The word 'munchies' always makes me think of...."
Also, it's very repetitious and amorphous, which I avoid.
I like music with more structure and drama.
The whole thing is just 2 chords, back and forth, over and over.
