Radio XXXI, side A, track 9: “Crying In The Night” by Buckingham Nicks

Buckingham Nicks - Crying In The NightOh, Buckingham Nicks, here we go, the first song I captured from the much-anticipated “Now And Then Weekend”!!!!  And it definitely doesn’t disappoint.  I’m going to address the Nicks half of Buckingham Nicks, if you’ll permit me, Buckingham Nicks.  For whatever reason, you’ve entered my radar a lot in the last year, Ms. Nicks.  It’s probably because I caught your performance on “The Voice” and just saw you a few times on “American Horror Story: Coven” in a delightful role playing yourself.  It’s like the world is rediscovering you all over again, and I’m glad for it, because I am, too.  And what I’m realizing is that I’ve fallen madly in love with your younger self, Ms. Nicks.  It’s the kind of thing that can happen in the age of technology, where I can see pictures of you when you were younger and hear your amazing, one-of-a-kind voice on an mp3 of a tape of a song off the radio from a record from before I was even born.  Seriously, Ms. Nicks, I totally get why you were on “American Horror Story” as a witch, because your voice is all kinds of bewitching.  Were I born ten years earlier, I guarantee that I would have sent you love letters frequently and may have helped pioneer some stalker laws.  As I listen to “Crying In The Night” for the first time in a long time, I’m entranced more than ever, and my only lament is that time and circumstances and the fact that I’m a creeper have kept us apart.

“Crying In The Night”

She was that
 
Kind’a lady

Tiiimes were haaard, oh woah oh

She’d come
Curlin’
‘Round you
Like fiiingeeeers

But she’ll leave you
Cryin’ in the niiight
She will leeeeave you
Cryin’ in the night
Woah, she’s gonna leave you
Cryin’ in the night
She’s back in
Tooown, she’s lookin’ aroooooooound

Say you needed some
One ta depend on
You’re
All alone
She’s the only one
Whoo come
Take you
Far away

Take your breath awaaaay

But she’ll leave you
Cryin’ in the niiight
She will leeeeave you
Cryin’ in the night
Woah, she’s gonna leave you
Cryin’ in the night
She’s back in
 
Tooown, she’s lookin’ aroooooooound

Come on, baby, she’s the wrong kind a’ girl
She’s a come-on lady, she’s a tarnished pearl

She’ll take your money, she’ll wreck your world

Wreck your world
She’s a come-on babyyyyyy

Come-on giiiiiiirl

Oh, oh, come-ooonnn girl

Oh, oh, come-oooooooooon girl
She’s back

And she’s lookin’ arooooooound
She’s lookin’ arooooooooooooound
She’s lookin’ aroooooooooooooooound
