FNM a little late

cyn427 NoVaZone7

Just had a friend send this to me and I found it so funny and fabulous, that I thought, "hey, why not make it the theme this week?" So the theme is unrequited love/adoration with extra points for a side of humor. Not looking for anything heavy or sad since there is quite enough of that surrounding us these days. Still, whatever you choose is fine with me!

I have a bunch of songs in my library for unrequited love or there about.

This is a from a early Bonnie Raitt. It was this song that got me to buy the album back in the 70's. I had not heard of her before this. It has such a live sound since it was literally recorded live, no mixes, in a garage studio at a home on Lake Minnetonka. Most of the album was recorded that way.

I'll look for something a little more light hearted.

She’s a little sugary but a really good person I think. I like people who can laugh at themselves :)

Is song about unrequited love, or he just can't be around her anymore. I guess you make your own story with this song...

Haven't found a "happy" song yet.

Cyn, Petty is one of my favorite artists. His songs are so varied in sound and have a great hook. Yes, he is missed.

Warning very 80's video.

The Romantics

Talking in Your Sleep

https://youtu.be/JmGMzyajA2U

I think it may be wishful thinking on the guys part, maybe just creepy. Like the sound and beat of this song but not so sure about the lyrics, or all the sleeping women. I think they meant it to have a creep factor.

Saw the thread title and immediately thought “Papa Don’t Preach” but I see I was on the wrong track. Will think about this a bit more.

Blast from the past!!!

Billy Idol

Dancing With Myself

https://youtu.be/FG1NrQYXjLU

My husband and I dressed up for Halloween in the 80's and one year went all out. He was Billy Idol, I made a vest thing like Billy wears in this video, pretty much duplicated that whole outfit. I went as a Madonna (as in the pop artist one of course) look alike groupie. I still have picture, won't post it though. Use imagination. That's kinda funny!!

New Order “Bizarre Love Triangle”

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tkOr12AQpnU

ETA this is a song about someone in a relationship having thoughts about a previous relationship. It was very popular in the dance clubs in the mid to late 80’s.

I hadn't seen that Prentenders video before. Love the song, but - yikes! - the video is the antithesis of the ususal take-no-prisoners stage presence of Chrissie Hynde.

Okay if ever we’ve had a theme calling for some good old country this is it. Get your beer to cry into and throw some sawdust on those carefully cared for original wood floors. Time to scoot a boot.

Head slap. How could I have forgotten this one.

Rick Springfield, Jessie's Girl

https://youtu.be/qYkbTyHXwbs

I saw a interview with him a few years ago. He was talking about how he frequently gets booked on cruise ships and has a large groupie following, a Rick Springfield extravaganza cruise. But he was talking it all and good humor it sounded like, so did his fans. Just a big karaoke sing along to Jesse's Girl.

I had no idea that was a thing to do on cruise ships. But I've never had the desire to be on a floating hotel.

Another Steely Dan Gaucho

Not unrequited love, but a fine example of sexual behavior causing embarrassment and anger. Maybe jealousy. "... your spangled, leather poncho with the studs that match your eyes" sounds like something a bit more.

Oh, but he watches so sadly

How can he tell her he loves her

Yes, he would give his heart gladly

But each day, when she walks to the sea

She looks straight ahead, not at him

First the humor:

And almost every song by the Supremes is about a broken heart:

And I was just watching this last night - 1 of my faves from Oklahoma!, and the end of the number is what makes it go with the theme, I think:
