Music Monday – The Cars

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

 

I have enjoyed The Cars music for many years. I was saddened to hear that Ric Ocasek, lead singer of The Cars passed away yesterday.  I thought I would share two of my favorite songs from the band.

 

RIP Ric Ocasek

 

 

Just What I Needed
.
I don’t mind you comin’ here
And wastin’ all my time
‘Cause when you’re standin’, oh so near
I kinda lose my mind
It’s not the perfume that you wear
It’s not the ribbons in your hair
And I don’t mind you comin’ here
And wastin’ all my time
I don’t mind you hangin’ out
And talkin’ in your sleep
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been
As long as it was deep, yeah
You always knew to wear it well and
You look so fancy I can tell
I don’t mind you hangin’ out
And talkin’ in your sleep
I guess, you’re just what I needed
I needed someone to feed
I guess, you’re just what I needed
I needed someone to bleed
I don’t mind you comin’ here
And wastin’ all my time, time
‘Cause when you’re standin’, oh so near
I kinda lose my mind, yeah
It’s not the perfume that you wear
It’s not the ribbons in your hair
I don’t mind you comin’ here
And wastin’ all my time
I guess, you’re just what I needed
I needed someone to feed
I guess, you’re just what I needed
I needed someone to bleed
I guess, you’re just what I needed
I needed someone to feed
I guess, you’re just what I needed
I needed someone to bleed
Yeah, yeah, so bleed me
You’re just what I needed
You’re just what I needed
You’re just what I needed
Yeah, yeah, yeah

You Might Think
.
You might think I’m crazy
To hang around with you
Maybe you think I’m lucky
To have something to do
But I think that you’re wild
Inside me is some child
You might think I’m foolish
Or maybe it’s untrue
(You might think) you might think I’m crazy
(All I want) but all I want is you
You might think it’s hysterical
But I know when you’re weak
You think you’re in the movies
And everything’s so deep
But I think that you’re wild
When you flash that fragile smile
You might think it’s foolish
What you put me through
(You might think) you might think I’m crazy
(All I want) but all I want is you
And it was hard, so hard to take
There’s no escape without a scrape
You kept it going ’till the sun fell down
You kept it going
Well you might think I’m delirious
The way I run you down
But somewhere sometimes, when you’re curious
I’ll be back around
Oh I think that you’re wild
And so uniquely styled
You might think it’s foolish
This chancy rendezvous
(You might think) you might think I’m crazy
(All I want) but all I want is you
All I want is you
All I want is you
