Sappy

To say that I enjoy listening to rock 'n' roll is an understatement, whether I'm BUI* or not (as Turnbaby inadvertently discovered. Look at that evil grin of hers. And her alluring cleavage. She's evil, I tell ya. Diabolical. But I adore her nevertheless.).

Sometimes, though, when the beer hits the spot or when the moon is full or just because, sappy love songs get to me. When that happens, I feel all warm and tingly inside and I find myself singing along, or making up my own lyrics - but only in my mind - because vocalizing them seems tantamount to sacrilege (especially given how my singing voice sucks big time). Though I do throw caution to the wind sometimes and sing along with abandon anyway. Mostly when I'm alone or very, very drunk. No catastrophic effects - so far.

And when it's a rock song that's a sappy love song at the same time, like the one I heard just a few minutes ago (I'm not saying which one, I do have some sense of shame after all), I can't help gurning like Daddy Papersurfer. It's rockin' fun to be sappy and silly once in a while.

*Blogging under the influence (but then you already knew that, Turnbaby!)

Go on, you can tell me what song it is. I have no shame. And I love me a sappy rock song. Was it by Bon Jovi? ;)

Uh.....Lizza dear....Turn is not the only one who knows...bwaahaahaa. The word is out. You can't run and you can't hide. (grin)

Can I hear you sing sometime? I give lessons ya know. The thought of you singing a sappy rock love song around made me smile. Let 'em out and sing 'em loud. We don't care if you sing in tune or not. Getting all "tingly inside" is what counts.

The key talent is to BUI so that nobody can tell.

LOL!

Mimi Lenox said...

Uh oh. I missed that. Did Ian just rag on Bon Jovi?

Daddy Papersurfer said...

You will never be quite as good looking as me I'm afraid - even with beer goggles on.

The ability to 'gurn' does save on tissues though - OK OK - I'm going now.

I have BUI more than I can tell you...but as travis said, the trick is not letting anyone know....

Lizza said...

Ian: Close, think '80s. Something along the lines of Whitesnake, Poison, and Guns 'n Roses. :-D

Mimi: I would never subject you to my singing. Especially since you're a music teacher! The ones who've heard me sing are scarred for life, though they would never admit it (they love me that way).

Damn Reader.

Trav: But I can tell! At least when I do it (a couple of times at least, tee hee).

Mims: I think so.

DaddyP: Save me a place at the table. I do fancy a kebab or two. And I lurve you too!

Bond: We should put up a BUI society. Then everybody will know!

Michael C said...

I thought ALL love songs were sappy love songs. Except for Paul McCartney's 'Silly Love Songs.' Because that one is just, well, sad...
;-)

Lizza said...

Michael: AND silly.

Turnbaby said...

Darn Reader--this just popped in mine today!

And tee hee there I am!

I am head over heels right now so I am ALL sappy ALL the time!!

Hmmm Def Leppard?

Lizza said...

Well, send me a smooch and a grope, Turnbaby. I sorely need them.

Sidney said...

We all need love songs to make it through the night...

Lizza said...

Sidney: A Duvel will do. Or not. :-)
