Radio 60, side B, track 2: “Don’t You Want Me” by The Human League

The Human League - Don't You Want MeOh, The Human League, I feel like I’ve said all that I wanted to say about this song when it showed up back in June (has it really been that long already, The Human League?), and frankly, it’s a holiday week and at least for right now, I’d rather not spend a lot of energy thinking about violence against women.  In fact, let’s focus on happiness against women.  I bought flowers for my wife this last weekend.  I’m going grocery shopping tonight all by myself since she hates doing it (but it’s fine, now that I’ve discovered Spotify and have a smart phone, also thanks to my wife, I can listen to Drake and Adele and Fetty Wap and One Direction and The Weeknd while picking out Thanksgiving goodies).  And my wife’s really pretty.  And smart.  And incredibly patient and forgiving.  Obviously.  Plus she’s ridiculously in love with all our pets.  It’s like living with Snow White or Cinderella or something.  The only reason that random birds don’t fly right up to her and sing adoringly to her is because I keep the windows shut.  So yeah, The Human League, I’d like to believe that my wife and I are nothing like the couple in this song.  And if my wife thinks differently, she can get her own blog.

“Don’t You Want Me”

<awesome The Human League jam>

You were workin’ as a waitress in a cocktail bar

When I met you

I picked you out, I shook you up and turned you around
Turned you into someone new

Now, five years later on, you’ve got the world at your feet
Success has been so easy for you

But don’t forget, it’s me who putchoo where you are now
And I can putchoo back down, too

Don’t
Donchoo want me

Ya know I can’t believe it when I hear thatchoo won’t see me, don’t
Donchoo want me

Ya know I don’t believe you when you say thatchoo don’t need me, it’s much too late to find

When ya think you’ve changed ya mind
You’d better change it back or we will both be sorry
Donchoo want me, baby

Donchoo want me, ohhh oh oh oh

Donchoo want me, baby

Donchoo want me, ohhh oh oh oh

I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar

That much is true

But even then I knew I’d find a much better place
Either with or withoutchoo

The five years we have had have been such good times

I still love you

But now I think it’s time I lived my life on my own
I guess it’s just what I must do

Don’t
Donchoo want me

Ya know I can’t believe it when I hear thatchoo won’t see me, don’t
Donchoo want me

Ya know I don’t believe you when you say thatchoo don’t need me, it’s much too late to find

When ya think you’ve changed ya mind
You’d better change it back or we will both be sorry
Donchoo want me, baby

Donchoo want me, ohhh oh oh oh

Donchoo want me, baby

Donchoo want me, ohhh oh oh oh

<awesome The Human League jam>

Donchoo want me, baby

Donchoo want me, ohhh oh oh oh

Donchoo want me, baby

Donchoo want me, ohhh oh oh oh

Donchoo want me, baby

Donchoo want me, ohhh oh oh oh

Donchoo want me, baby

Donchoo want me, ohhh oh oh oh

Donchoo want me, baby

Donchoo want me, ohhh oh oh oh
