Yesterday, we were in the car for the one hour trip from Nashville to Wake Forest. As usual, we bickered about which radio station to listen to. I want country, Tony wants NPR, the kids like the oldies (70's and 80's, when did that happen?) on The River. To eliminate whining, the grown-ups gave in to the kids.
Queen, The Clash, Boston, The Eagles. Then, Atlanta Rhythm Section's "So Into You" came on. I got the giggles. When this song came out in 1976, I was just 11. To my young ears, I heard, "When you walked into the room, there was do-do in your eyes." I couldn't believe someone had written a song about such a disgusting matter. And, how exactly did she get do-d0 in her eyes? Was she looking at the sky when a bird flew over? Did her cat have an attitude problelm? Maybe somebody threw it at her? It was quite a few years later before I realized what the REAL words are.
"When you walked into the room, there was voodoo in the vibes."
Now, I ask you, which song would you rather listen too? I still hear "do-do" and I'm 43.
