Radio 58, side A, track 8: “Without You” by Motley Crue

Motley Crue - Without YouOh, Motley Crue, this is quite the shift from the kick-ass songs we’ve already heard by you on here.  Not saying that this song isn’t kick-ass, because it so is, it’s just a much different tempo than “Dr. Feelgood” and “Kickstart My Heart”.  But that’s a good thing, because I was at the age where I was starving for love ballads by hard rock bands so I’d have an excuse to maybe some day put my hands in a girl’s back pockets.  Besides the obvious awesomeness of this song, though, I think we should chat a little bit about the DJ’s clear obsession with Heather Locklear, who was Tommy Lee’s wife at the time.  Also, go to hell, Tommy Lee.  I totally forgot you were married to Heather Locklear before Pamela Anderson.  Such bullshit.  Plus you were the progenitor of the lucrative celebrity sex tape.  AND you got to be in a kick-ass band?!?!?!  Part of me wants to say that that’s so unfair.  But then again, I’m happily married.  And even if I weren’t, would I REALLY want to be married to Heather and/or Pamela?  And would my anxiety truly let me be a part of a mega-successful band like yours?  The answer to all these questions is probably a no.  So I’ll just appreciate the fact that I don’t have to live in a world without you, Motley Crue.

“Without You”

<awesome Motley Crue jam>

Withoutchoo
There’s no change

My nights’n days’a grey

If I reached out and touched the rain
It just wouldn’t feel the same

Withoutchoo
I’d be lost

I’d slip down from the top

I’d slide down so low
Girl, you’d never, never know

Withoutchoo
Withoutchoo
A sailor lost at sea

Withoutchoo, womaaan
The world comes down on me

Withoutchoo
In my life

I slowly wilt’n die

But with you by my side
You’re the reason I’m alive

But with you in my life
You’re the reason I’m alive

But withoutchoo, withoutchoo

<awesome Motley Crue jam>

Withoutchoo
My hope is small

Let me be me all along

You let the fires rage inside
Knowin’ some day I’d grow strong

Withoutchoo
Withoutchoo
A sailor lost at sea

Withoutchoo, womaaan
The world comes down on me

Withoutchoo
In my life

I slowly wilt’n die

But with you by my side
You’re the reason I’m alive

But with you in my life
You’re the reason I’m alive

But withoutchoo, without yoooou

I could face a mountain
But I could never climb alone

I could start another day
But how many, just don’t know

You’re the reason the sun shines down and the nights
They don’t grow cold

Only you that I’ll hold when I’m young
Only you
As we grow old

<awesome Motley Crue jam>

Withoutchoo
In my life

I slowly wilt’n die

But with you by my side
You’re the reason I’m alive

But with you in my life
You’re the reason I’m alive

But withoutchoo, withoutchooooo
