February Songs

Since I decided to go with themes for my random songs, I was going to start out with fluffy dance songs that I like, but Amy wanted love songs for February. Fluffy songs will come later on, but for now I have picked out eight songs for this month so I’ll be talking about them twice a week to squeeze them all into February.

Here’s your first love song…

Mansun

Song: Mansun’s Only Love Song

For those that know me, know that I love Mansun. They are not everyone’s cup of tea though. Paul Draper, lead singer and writer, sings in a very high voice at times. Some think it is whiny. I like it. This song could be one of the more annoying ones, but it is also one of my most favorite Mansun songs. I also have a fabulous story to go with it.

At my previous job, there was a co-worker named David who was horrible. He ended up getting fired later on for stealing private company information, but before that happened he annoyed the crap out of me. I had my CD player in my cube, and would play my music quietly. I was in love with this CD at the time so I would play it over and over again day after day. It was quiet enough so that no one else could really hear it, but Paul Draper sang high enough in this song that David could hear a bit of it in the next cube. It would drive him crazy and he would always ask what that noise was. This made me very happy. And that is why this is a fabulous love song. 🙂

I’ll include the lyrics in case you would like to peruse:

Mansun’s Only Love Song

If I start this small debate
The centre of the universe is up for sale
If my melody should fall
The tune is unimportant as I said before
Or should I say it was the words, I should

Standing in grey lantern light
Mavis looking sexy through her dress it shines
Hiding in the vestry she recites her lines, she says

I can’t see you, I love you, I miss you
I can’t see you, I love you, I do

If I feel God watching me
I control the actions of his destiny
All my sentiments ring true
You feel him in the mirror laughing back at you
If I could tell you how it seems, I would

If I start this small debate
The centre of the universe is gone for sale
So my melody should fall
The tune is unimportant as I said before
If I could tell you how it seems, I would
