Stuck on you

Stuck on you
I’ve got this feeling down deep in my soul that I just can’t lose
Guess I’m on my way
Needed a friend
And the way I feel now I guess I’ll be with you ’til the end
Guess I’m on my way
Mighty glad you stayed

I’m stuck on you
Been a fool too long I guess it’s time for me to come on home
Guess I’m on my way
So hard to see
That a woman like you could wait around for a man like me
Guess I’m on my way
Mighty glad you stayed

Oh, I’m leaving on that midnight train tomorrow
And I know just where I’m going
I’ve packed up my troubles and I’ve thrown them all away
‘Cause this time little darling
I’m coming home to stay

I’m stuck on you
I’ve got this feeling down deep in my soul that I just can’t lose
Guess I’m on my way
Needed a friend
And the way I feel now I guess I’ll be with you ’til the end
Guess I’m on my way
I’m mighty glad you stayed

A friend of mine likes Stuck on you by Lionel Richie, I used to like it a lot too but I’m not so sure anymore. You see the song talks about the woman who’s there while our singer went about enjoying himself and being a fool. I dislike the sexist attitude that the woman should remain pure as driven snow while the man sows his oats and when he’s done his bit, he comes back to her now fully appreciative of what he has in her. Absolute balderdash! If you’re foolish enough to run rings around me, you should live with the consequences, I’m not having your oat sowing self in my life, if you’d sown plantains that would have been a different story.
I’m a huge fan of Lionel Richie, as I write this ‘Penny lover’ plays on my note 10.1 and that song has been one of my favourite songs from age four (inherited my love for Lionel from my mum) even when I didn’t understand what he was saying Lionel has always been able to touch my heart. “Sail on” just came on 🙂 it’s an awesome breakup song, in the league of Cher’s Believe and of course “I will survive” by Gloria Gaynor.
I’ll be doing a series on my favourite songs, guess it will help me blog regularly. Of course I’ll be starting out with my first love L.R
