Saturday Night Serenade–Wait. What?!

You know you’re getting old when Publix starts playing kick-ass music.

Yesterday, Mr. R and I were tooling around where ‘shopping is a pleasure’ when this song came on.   We found ourselves in the pet food aisle, both of us singing along to Wilson Phillips’ gorgeous harmonies.  I love this song.  But then I started listening to the words.

This is not a happy little song.  It’s about a couple breaking up, and one party won’t let go of the other.  Suddenly, we’re thinking about gaslighting, stalking, and restraining orders.

“Release Me”

I know that it’s time for a change
Mmm but when that change comes
Will you still feel the same?How many times have I tried to turn this love around?
I don’t want to give up
But baby it’s time I had two feet on the ground
Can you release me
Can you release me
Now that you’re gone I can’t help myself from wondering
Oh, if you’d have come down from your high
Would we’ve been all right?
Release me
Can you release me

[Chorus:]
Come on baby, come on baby
You knew it was time to just let go
‘Cause we want to be free
But somehow it’s just not that easy
Come on Darlin’, hear me Darlin’
‘Cause you’re a waste of time for me
I’m trying to make you see
That baby you’ve just got to release me
Release me
Release me
I’m not going back to you anymore
Finally my weakened heart is healing though very slow
So stop coming around my door
‘Cause you’re not gonna find
What you’re looking for

[Chorus]

What is this power you’ve got on me
What is this power, Oh
What is it,What is it

[Chorus]

Release me
Will you release me
Ah…Release me
Will you release me

But those tight Wilson Phillips harmonies sell it.  So I guess I don’t mind.

I hope you’re enjoying a fantastic weekend, the last one of August.  Be sure to hug those you love.

Happy Saturday night!

P.S. As long as we’re at it, why not enjoy the ultimate stalkers’ anthem as well?  😉
