Songs of the heart divine
Through the long hot days and the summer nights,
Chris de Burgh, Love of the Heart Divine.
Yeah, it's kind of cute. But come on. There are lots of people who fall in love and get all gooey. My old friend comes to mind; she was like 30 and then she fell in love with this guy and acted like a complete teenager. Hmm. I guess some people never are blown away by love, but it seems quite common. I guess some just sleep around until they find someone that fits, but that is considered rather pathetic. Romance is the way it's supposed to be. I can't see that being "of a different world" by any decent use of the English language.
Now, if you keep loving someone without ever getting any - and I'm excluding your kids here - now, that's love of a different world. This is where people will reasonably ask: What planet do YOU live on?
A woman's heart is filled with passion,
Chris de Burgh, A woman's heart.
Sure thing. Reminds me: Why are there so many songs about love, and so few about food? I think it safe to say that most of us make food a lot more often. I can imagine a great market for chocolate songs. And ice cream. Chocolate ice cream! Now, that would bring out the passion in the female populace, I bet. But nah, it's a man's world out there. And we approach our temptations differently. Women buy slim shakes; men buy Viagra.
(Incidentally, recent research show that men it their 40es suffer less from sexual dysfunction than the younger ones. I'm sure it will taper off when we reach 50, though. At least if we don't encourage it. Please please please. 0_0*)
She is the morning sun,
Chris de Burgh, My lover is.
Why not go all the way and replace "lover" with Goddess? Talk about high expectations here. Not even my incredible friend the SuperWoman could live up to that; and she is all that guys imagine when they're infatuated, and then some. (Well, possible exception for certain things that I can't know anything about and don't want to think about, but I doubt it.) But she sure isn't the light. I have seen the light, and she isn't it. Sorry, but there are churches and temples and stuff if you need to worship.
And now for some realism:
Four in the morning and I just can't sleep;
Chris de Burgh, I want it (and I want it now).
Now that's what I call social realism! Yeah, baby! Woo hoo! Chocolate! Ahem. Got a bit carried away there. But it is a fun, sarcastic song. Really refreshing after all the artificial sweetener ... That's what I love about de Burgh: He is not (contrary to what you would believe from broadcasting) a one-trick pony. Though he is particularly adept in one trick, I'll give you that.
