Okay after driving around with my grandfather all day, listening to some oldies station, I found myself with a bunch of goofy lyrics stuck in my head. Once I almost got caught by a good looking lady, belting out something about Buttercup building me up just to let me down, and then later by one of my friends while I was doing the head bobble to Monster Mash, or Love Potion #9, or something equally emasculating. Of course, I quickly switched to a Rock station before lowering the window.
Anyway, this week's song was inspired by lyrics of the 50's and 60's that no matter how corny or goofy, I found myself singing along with some retarded grin on my face.

Whenever You're Around

You walk in, ooh
My heart beats faster
My palms get sweaty
My knees get weak
Feels like I'm headed
For disaster
With no paddle
Up the creek

(only bass vocals)

'Cause whenever you're around

(Drums, vocals)

It's like

Blood to vampires
Full moons to werewolves
Red kryptonite
To Superman
From level headed
I go to brain dead yeah
I'm completely under
Your command

You walk in, mmm
It only takes a while
Before your power
Takes its toll
The moment I smell you
And you flash me that smile
I lose all
Self control

'Cause whenever you're around

It's like

Blood to vampires
Full moons to werewolves
Red kryptonite
To Superman
From level headed
I go to brain dead yeah
I'm completely under
Your command

You walk in huh
I feel adrenaline
Soarin' through me at an
All time high
My insides run so fast
I start back pedalin'
I feel like I can fly

'Cause whenever you're around

It's like

Blood to vampires
Full moons to werewolves
Red kryptonite
To Superman
From level headed
I go to brain dead yeah
I'm completely under
Your command

Ain't no logic to it
I become unglued it's
Got me howlin' at the moon
Dancin' in the sand
You know that you
Just got me subdued yeah
I'm completely under
Your command

It's like

Blood to vampires
Full moons to werewolves
Red kryptonite
To Superman
From level headed
I go to brain dead yeah
I'm completely under your command

Mmm I'm completely under
Your command

That's great stuff. I loved the chorus! Ditto about keeping the 50's, 60's thing going on. Keep it up!

I love the Buttercup song! :D
And I do remember singing to monster mash a few times when I was little :oops:

There's a thin fine line between hate and rage.
Now watch the line be crossed and break!
