Cheesy Song of the Day, November 26:
‘There’s No Getting Over Me’ Ronnie Milsap
When the song came on the radio last week, I was reminded how much I loved the song as a little girl. The melody had me and the lyrics were sweet. But time, maturity and information made me wonder if the heartsick protagonist is also saying: Even if you want to move on emotionally, I won’t let you. It’s the same thud that I got from The Police’s ‘Every Breath You Take‘ — this isn’t a song of adoration, it’s a stalker song!
Lesson from this: I listen to hard and need to stop doing that.
