Radio XIII, side A, track 1: “You Might Think” by The Cars

The Cars You Might ThinkOh, The Cars, what I loved about the song besides all of it was that it’s a a celebration of the pursuit.  And not just the pursuit of that perfect girl, the prom queen or cheerleader or whoever’s super popular.  It’s the pursuit of that other girl.  That quiet girl or dramatic girl or damaged girl, the girl who might not cause a second glance to most of the male population but becomes the object of your affection and/or obsession.  To be honest, The Cars, I find the so-called “beautiful people” a little boring.  A little generic.  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had my share of crushes on some classically beautiful women, but the women that I’ve more often found beautiful and fascinating probably wouldn’t make it on the cover of a glamour mag.  They’ve been all body types (hell, sometimes they didn’t even have all their body parts), colors, heights and weights.  The sad part is, a lot of times when you declare your love for such a person, because of the appearance-obsessed culture we live in, the reaction can be a little bit like “Are you crazy?”  Well, I’m not (at least when it comes to ladies), and this song sums it up pretty damn well.

“You Might Think”

A’well’a you might think I’m crazy

T’hang around with you

Or maybe ya think I’m lucky

T’have somethin’ to do

But I think
That you’re wild

Inside me is some child

You might think I’m foolish

Or maybe it’s untrue

(You might think)
You might think I’m crazy
(All I want)
All I want is you

You might think it’s hysterical

But I know when you’re weak

Ya think you’re in the movies
Everything’s so deep

But I think that you’re wild
When you flash that fragile smile

You might think it’s foolish

What ya put me through

(You might think)
You might think I’m crazy
(All I want)
All I want is you

And it was hard
 
So hard to take

There’s no escape

Without a scrape

But you kept it goin’
‘Til the sun fell down

Ya kep’ it
Goin’

<awesome The Cars jam>

A’well’a you might think I’m delirious
The way I run you down

But somewhere
Sometimes
When you’re curious
I’ll be back around

Oh, I think
That you’re wild

And so-o-o uniquely styled

You might think it’s foolish

This chancy rendezvous

(You might think)
You might think I’m crazy
(All I want)
All I want is you

Ah-oo
All I want is you
(All I want
Is
You)
