Ok. I’m am so hooked onto this song by REO Speedwagon. And I really don’t know why. The melody, the lyrics. It gives a sense that maybe, there can be fairytales in reality. Heh. Sounds cheesy, I know. But its true.
The songs of the 1980’s never fail to surprise me. I fall for them, one after another. Yes. I do averagely like the songs of late, but really, they can’t compare to the music of the 80’s. Producing songs like Living On A Prayer, Bohemian Rhapsody, Sometimes When We Touch, Right Here Waiting, This Ain’t A Love Song, Total Eclipse Of The Heart and many more (that saying, I only listed the classic rock ballads), its obvious songs like Baby, Poker Face, Bad Romance, Stereo Hearts, Baby One More Time, Genie In A Bottle, Pumped Up Kicks, and many more falls short of the glory of the 80s. With the exception of a limited one or two, they don’t produce music as good as the 80’s anymore.
I won’t deny, one of the episodes of Supernatural introduced me to this song by REO Speedwagon. And having the character Dean Winchester sing it out acapella, got my attention.
Typical Jensen Ackles is always adorable of course, specially as Dean singing. Heh. =)
But decided to YouTube the entire original song. And dang, I never expected it to hit me like that. Fell in love with the song immediately. Now I have another one to add to my favourite 80’s songs, which is already a VERY long list, if I may say, considering most of my favourite songs are from the 80’s anyway. Heh.
I totally can see myself curling up with this song replaying on my iPod on a cold rainy night. Hee. Can’t help wishing one day, maybe, I’ll have a love story of my own, evolving around this song. *blush*
