Radio XXXVII, side A, track 5: “Be With You” by Bangles

Bangles - Be With YouOh, Bangles, I’m not feeling real well right now.  I have a cold or the flu or allergies, maybe all three.  And this song is exactly like what’s going on in my body right now.  No, Bangles, I don’t mean that your music causes me to hack spasmodically and alternate rapidly between bone-chilling shivers and sweat-wracking fever.  What I mean is that this song is like one of those viruses we’re always fearing, that lie dormant in your body for years and then suddenly spring forth and send you out to Walgreen’s in the middle of the night for some Nyquil.

Wait.  I’m not saying this right. . .

What I mean is, this song has been inside of me for years and years and I kinda sorta forgot about it and then suddenly it bursts forth and I’ve got chills again listening to it and I almost feel like I have a fever. . .

So, yeah.  Like a virus.  But a really good virus.  The kind everyone would want to get.

Listen, Bangles, I’m pretty sick right now, and I may or may not be hallucinating, but my point is that I love you all so much and I think I should be with you.  Maybe bring some green tea over?  With honey?

“Be With You”

<awesome Bangles jam>

Out my window

The rain starts to fall, and the wind blows
Through an empty hall, in the mirror
Ooo, reflections of you
(Aaaaaaaa)
In the distance I hear a sound
Is thatcha comin’ aroooound

(Whatchoo gonna dooo) Oh, whatchoo gonna dooo
(I think I should) I
Think I should be with yoooou
(Love that’s overduuue) A love that’s overduuue
Oh, think I should be with yoooou

Thought
I saw ya

In a stranger’s face, should I call ya

Or should I walk away, around the corner
Is around the world

Is thatcha lookin’ at meeee

Or am I livin’ a dreeeeam, woah oh
(Whatchoo gonna dooo) Oh, whatchoo gonna dooo
(I think I should) I
Think I should be with yoooou
(Love that’s overduuue) A love that’s overduuue
Oh, I
Think I should be with yoooou

And when I’m lost in a dream
You are all I can see
All alone in the night I’m waiting for you
In a moment I’d die
Just to look in your eyes
The dream is alive, I’m waitiiin’
Oh, my (oh, my)
How I try
To make ya see that
I should be with yoooooooooooooooou

In the distance I hear a sound
Is thatcha comin’ arooooooound
(Whatchoo gonna dooo) Oh, whatchoo gonna dooo
(I think I should) I
Think I should be with yoooou
(Love that’s overduuue) A love that’s overduuue
Oh, I
Think I should be with yoooou

(Oh-I-I-I-I-I) I
Think I should be with yoooou
(I-I-I-I-I) Oh, I
Think I should be with yoooou
(I-I-I-I-I) Yeah, I
Think I should be with yoooooooooooooooooooou
