Radio 60, side B, track 5: “Love Hurts” by Joan Jett

Joan Jett - Love HurtsOh, Joan Jett, I get it, I get it.  I totally need to ask for this album for Christmas.  A few decades too late, sure, but hey, what did I know, I was just a dumb kid.  But after hearing this song and the last one, I can take a hint when it’s whacked me over the head a few dozen times.  I feel bad about asking for it, though, Joan Jett.  Or even purchasing it myself.  A CD is just so twentieth century, you know?  What happens is, I ask for a cool CD for Christmas, and then my wife and I listen to it in the car on the drive back from New Orleans, and then it just stays in the car for the rest of eternity.  That’s what happened to the Whitney Houston album I asked for last Christmas.  And the Cee-Lo Green album I asked for the year before.  I’m ashamed to say that I don’t know if I’ve even listened to the Foo Fighters’ “Sonic Highways” yet.  It took me two or three years to listen to that “Ghost Brothers” musical by Stephen King.  In this day and age where I pretty much just listen to Spotify and/or whatever I taped off the radio three decades ago, getting a new CD doesn’t even make any sense.  But I do love opening up a new CD and popping it in the CD player in the car.  And I did listen to the “Treme” soundtrack a whole lot when I got it.  Maybe once we get a car that’s bluetooth-enabled (that’s right, right?), I’ll start asking for mp3 downloads or whatever it is one asks for for Christmas when requesting music from Santa these days.  But this album is clearly too awesome to sit around and wait for me to understand technology, so I’m going to kick it old school-ish and hope that on our trip back to Austin this year, your voice’ll be coming out of our car’s aging speakers.

“Love Hurts”

<awesome Joan Jett jam>

Love hurts

Love scars

Love wounds

And mars

Any heart

Not tough

Or strong

Enough

Ta take a lotta pain

Take a lotta pain

Love is like a cloud

Holds a lotta rain

Love hurts

Ooo ooo, love hurts

I may

Be slow

But eeeeeven so

I know a thing

Or two

I learned

From you

I really learned a lot

Really learned a lot

Love is like a flame

Burns you when it’s hot

Love hurts

Ooo ooo, love hurts

Ooo ooo, love hurts

Some fools rave
Of happiness

Blissfullness

Togetherness

Some fools fool themselves, I guess

They’re not foolin’ me
But I know it isn’t true

But I know it isn’t true

Love is just a lie

Made to make you blue

Love hurts

Ooo ooo, love hurts

Ooo ooo, love huuuurts

<awesome Joan Jett jam>

Yeeeeah, but I know it isn’t true

But I know it isn’t true

Love is just a lie

Made to make you blue

Love hurts

Ooo ooo, love hurts

Ooo ooo, love hurts

Ooo ooooooooooo
