    Default Bend me, Shape me

    What kind of impression do these lyrics make on you?

    "You are all the woman I need
    And baby you know it
    (Know it, know it, know it)
    You can make this beggar a king
    A clown or a poet
    (Poet, poet, poet)
    I'll give you all that I own
    You got me standing in line
    Out in the cold
    Pay me some mind

    Bend me, shape me
    Anyway you want me
    Long as you love me
    It's all right
    Bend me, shape me
    Anyway you want me
    You got the power to turn on the light

    Everybody tells me I'm wrong
    To want you so badly
    (Badly, badly, badly)
    But there's a force driving me on
    I follow it gladly
    (Gladly, gladly, gladly)
    So let them laugh I don't care
    'Cause I got nothing to hide
    All that I want is you by my side

    Bend me, shape me
    Anyway you want me
    Long as you love me
    It's all right
    Bend me, shape me
    Anyway you want me
    You got the power
    To turn on the light

    Yeah, bend me, shape me
    Anyway you want me
    Long as you love me
    It's all right
    Bend me, shape me
    Anyway you want me
    You got the power
    To turn on the light"

    Yay -- complete codependency at its best!
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I had never really looked that closely at the words.
    What Jennifer said.

    When I listen to the lyrics of a song, I sometimes wonder about that MBType of the person that wrote it.

    Bubble gum band, but they had some decent horns. I remember what I was doing when that song came out; just starting to get into Junior High school. 1968. The year previous those guys appeared on American Bandstand with the original Pink Floyd ! In London there was the whole Carnaby street thing, and I remember the paisley design and the beginnings ( for me ) of hearing about "psychedelia" for the first time. Back then people were trying to scare us by saying that hippies would try to slip drugs in our punch at parties, and to watch out for dealers, etc. It didn't usually work like that in real life, though, is what I found as I got older. There were no dealers knocking on your door and trying to twist your arm. Au contraire.

    Lots of changes happening that year in'68. Khe Sanh and the Tet offensive. The battle of Saigon. The My Lai masacre. Congress repeals the gold standard. Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy assassinated. Saddam Hussein becomes Vice chairman of the Revolutionary party. Nixon and Wallace nominated. The Chicago protest at the Democrat convention. 150 women protest the Miss America pageant in the Feminist second wave. The Zodiac killer emerges. The Beatles form Apple records and put out "the White Album". In China, Mao begins sending young people educated in urban centers to work in the fields. In Japan - a 300 million yen heist, that is still unsolved to this day, goes down. Back when a yen was still a yen, ye know ?
    "The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them that they are being attacked and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."

    Two thumbs down for that approach.

    If I heard the chorus alone I would relate it to something sexual, but the rest of the lyrics spoil it for me.

    It's pretty pathetic and a reminder to me that no amount of trying to change yourself to please anyone is worth the sacrificing of pride that comes along with it.

    Then again, he'll ditch her as soon as she tries to drive him away for being so clingy and spineless.
