Radio XXXVI, side B, track 6: “Two Strong Hearts” by John Farnham

John Farnham - Two Strong HeartsOh, John Farnham, I’ve always wanted to be some Indiana Jones type or some detective or something where I get to have that moment where I’m tirelessly sifting through teetering piles of musty documents and I suddenly come across the one final piece of whatever puzzle I’m trying to solve and I get to whisper “Oh. . .my. . .god. . .” and slowly look up into the camera with a look of haunted victory.  I KINDA got a little bit of that as I was transcribing the lyrics for this one, John Farnham.  It’s when we got to the part where you sing “I wanna feel my blood run through you”.

Yeah.  I know.

I’m humming along to this pleasant, innocuous song, innocently typing away, and suddenly I stumble across a line that could be right out of a serial killer’s journal.  This light airy song suddenly gives way to oozing, brooding storm clouds.

Let’s look at it again:  “I wanna give my life to you.  I wanna feel my blood run through you.  And oh, I wanna touch you.  Over and over and over again.”  Feel my blood run through you?  What does that even mean?!?!  What would that even entail?!?!?

Ya know, John Farnham, I was all set to focus on that lyric “We stick together like the honey and the bee” and how it sounded like a really cool ’70s cop team:  Honey and the Bee.  But now, now I’m going to have to live with the fact that I may have accidentally stumbled across a forbidden text that will have me forever cursed for knowing it.  All set to great music.

Thanks a whole lot, John Farnham.
