“I Love You” by Climax Blues Band
Earlier this week, I posted 10 Tidbits About Teenage Kat. Well, if you’ve been following my 25 Songs, 25 days (which has been the longest 25 days ever!), you’ve caught glimpses of my unique taste in music. This post’s song is ‘a song you love but rarely listen to’.
Teen Kat is back. This song was a hit when I was around 16 or 17 years old. As teenage girls tend to be, I was such a romantic! Everything about this song expressed the kind of true love that you can only believe in when you are young and innocent. It’s a love that lasts forever, knows no boundaries, you name it….it’s that endless love. I wanted it so badly. I was convinced that there was one true love out there and all we had to do was find each other. The rest would be history. We would meet, fall in love and be together forever. I wasn’t so naïve as to think we wouldn’t have a few problems but like the song says- “Since then I never looked back. It’s almost like living a dream.” I dreamed about it! Oh, how I yearned!
I grew up to realize that the kind of love I dreamed about probably doesn’t exist or if it does, it’s only for a lucky few who find their one person at the right time. I believe you can build an incredible relationship with another person and love them almost more than anything else. But that falling head over heels in love, heart pounding, all consuming, can’t stop thinking about you love? That doesn’t happen often- not the REAL kind. I think it can happen and maybe it does settle down into something more stable and beautiful. And since everyone’s perception of true love and all that is different, who’s to say what’s real and what isn’t?
I love my husband. We have worked hard and long to create the life we have, making the best with what we’ve got. I wouldn’t change a thing. Seriously, if for no other reason, when I look at my kids, how could I change anything? I can’t imagine life without my 7-8-9…..( if we include the baby to be and Ari, the dog-9)
I loved this song back in 1980 and I still love it today. I don’t hear it often but when I do, it reminds me of that young romantic girl that I used to be with all those ideals. Do I still believe all of it? Wellllllll, that’s probably a post for another day. 🙂
