"What's Your Man Got to Do With Me?"
When I was ten and first began listening to the radio (KC101, Hits of Hamden, for any fellow Connecticutians out there), there were several popular songs that helped mold my emerging ideas about love and romance. I had them all on a single mix tape I taped off the radio, and I share these insights with you now:
1. Depeche Mode, "Enjoy the Silence"
Lesson: Gay British guys are more romantic than anyone you will ever actually date, so lower your standards.
2. Snow, "Girl I Been Hurt"
Lesson: Not only was Snow busted by someone who was an "informer", but now some girl is going around hurting him and stuff. Can't this guy get a break? Anyway, the lesson was the love hurts.
3. Guns N Roses, "November Rain"
Lesson: Axl Rose isn't very cute, but chicks still seem to dig him, I guess? So the lesson was, you can be not very cute, but if you own your own kilt(s), you can probably find someone to love. Also, you can probably die from looking at the rain too long with your mouth open (these lessons were primarily gleaned from the video, actually)
And this song:
I would say it's the lessons from this summer jam classic that I find myself applying most in my day-to-day life.
MC Lyte is way hotter than she sounds, huh (cos she sounds a little bit like someone's chain-smoking great aunt/ Lindsay Lohan)?
