Sorry to all male readers for yesterday's venty ragey Musical Monday post.
I know you understand (we've all been frustrated by the opposite sex, right?), but it was not truly the most mature thing I could have done.
And anyway, I've emotionally processed, latched onto other distractions, and would like to change my Musical Monday focus from Kiss Me Kate's "I Hate Men" to Imogen Heap's "Holding Out For a Hero". Because that, too, applies.
So the lesson I have learned is to keep setting my standards high, and expressing it in song.
Holding Out for a Hero
Where have all the good men gone And where are all the gods? Where's the street-wise Hercules To fight the rising odds? Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed? Late at night I toss and turn and dream of what I need [Chorus] I need a hero I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night He's gotta be strong And he's gotta be fast And he's gotta be fresh from the fight I need a hero I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light He's gotta be sure And it's gotta be soon And he's gotta be larger than life Somewhere after midnight In my wildest fantasy Somewhere just beyond my reach There's someone reaching back for me Racing on the thunder end rising with the heat It's gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet [Chorus] Up where the mountains meet the heavens above Out where the lightning splits the sea I would swear that there's someone somewhere Watching me Through the wind end the chill and the rain And the storm and the flood I can feel his approach Like the fire in my blood
