Musical Monday Followup

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


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


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
