Radio XXXIXL, side B, track 10: “Miss You Like Crazy” by Natalie Cole

Natalie Cole - Miss You Like CrazyOh, Natalie Cole, there’s a certain moment that is the worst thing about writing this blog.  It doesn’t happen very often, but when it does, it sucks.  It happens when I’m listening to a song right before I’m ready to start writing about it.  I listen to it and follow along with the lyrics, waiting for inspiration to strike.  And invariably, inspiration does, whether it be because of some lyric that I’d never noticed before or some memory that’s suddenly half-remembered or some serendipitous moment where my emotional state matches the current song on the track list.  But occasionally, RARELY, as the song is winding down, I realize that I’ve got nothin’.  I know I should have something, but I don’t got it.

To be fair, Natalie Cole, this usually happens when I’ve already written about a song once before, like when Cutting Crew totally song-blocked me.  And now like you, Natalie Cole.  I guess I just had everything I needed to say about this song the first time it came up.  Which is weird, because I was really looking forward to listening to this one, both last time and this time.  So I don’t know what my deal is, Natalie Cole, but I want you to know it has nothing to do with you.  You’re a lovely singer and this is a lovely song.  But I’m all out of words for you.  One might say I miss those words like crazy.  One MIGHT say.  But they probably wouldn’t because that’s a lame way to end a post.  As I just did.

“Miss You Like Crazy”
