The #7 most viewed post on The MTM 7 Countdown: Radio XXX, side A, track 4: “I Only Wanna Be With You” by Samantha Fox

Unintended consequences.  When I made these tapes as a young lad, I had no idea what the internet was.  I also didn’t know that the Roman numeral for 30 also represented very explicit pornography.  And while I knew both of those things when I wrote this post back in January of 2014, I wasn’t thinking about what having XXX in the title of a post might mean.  So for all y’all who searched “Samantha Fox XXX” and found my blog, sorry about that.  But hope you enjoyed the song.


Samantha Fox - I Only Wanna Be With YouOh, Samantha Fox, I. . .I don’t know what to think.  Usually when I listen to your music it stirs something inside of me that, were I Catholic, I’d have to bring it to confession.  But this. . .this one’s almost. . .pure.  Oh, there’s definitely some of that Samantha Fox sexiness bubbling just below the surface, but this is the first song that I’ve heard by you that didn’t involve you wanting to touch someone or have them touch you or you wanting to be naughty or you wanting to move your body all night long.  In fact, in this song you’re singing about being with someone all the time and everywhere.  The Samantha Fox I know would have been out the door before the morning light.  And I think in this song you may have just kissed the guy.  Once!  This is not the Samantha Fox I’m familiar with.  The Samantha Fox I’m familiar with would scoff at the Samantha Fox in this song for being so. . .chaste.

I don’t know how to feel, Samantha Fox.  I’m so used to your songs inspiring some of my more basic instincts, I don’t know if I’m prepared to listen to you sing about falling in love.  But you know what, Samantha Fox, if this is what you want, I’m happy to get behind you.  If you know what I’m saying. . .

“I Only Wanna Be With You”

With you, with you

With you, with you

With you, with you

With you, with you

I don’t know what it is that makes me love you so
I only know I never wanna let you go
‘Cause you started somethin’, but can’t you see
That ever since we met you’ve had a hold on me
It happens to be true

I only wanna be with you

It doesn’t matter where you go or what you do
I wanna spend each moment of the day with you
But look what has happened with just one kiss
I never knew that I could be in love like this
It’s crazy but it’s true

I only wanna be with you

You stopped to smile at me, asked if I’d care to dance
I fell into your open arms
And I didn’t stand a chance
Now listen, honey, I just wanna be beside you everywhere
As long as we’re together, honey, I don’t care
‘Cause you started something
Can’t you see
That ever since we met you’ve had a hold on me

No matter what you do

I only wanna be with you

Hold on me
Hold on me
Hold hold hold hold hold hold
Hold on me
Hold on me
Hold hold hold hold hold hold
Hold on me
Hold on me
Hold hold hold hold hold hold
Hold hold hold hold hold hold hold hold hold hold hold hold hold hold hold hold hold hold
Hold on me
Hold hold hold hold hold hold hold hold hold

You stopped to smile at me, asked if I care to dance
I fell into your open arms
And I didn’t stand a chance
Now listen, honey, I just wanna be beside you everywhere
As long as we’re together, honey, I don’t care
‘Cause you started something
Can’t you see
That ever since we met you’ve had a hold on me

No matter what you do

I only wanna be with you

I don’t know what it is that makes me love you so
I only know I never wanna let you go
‘Cause you started somethin’, but can’t you see
That ever since we met you’ve had a hold on me
Happens to be true

I only wanna be with you

No matter what you do

I only

I only

I only wanna be with yooooooo
