Radio XIV, side A, track 9: “Got A New Love” by Good Question

Good Question Got A New LoveOh, Good Question, isn’t that the best feeling?  You get your heart stepped on, and you go through some crummy times, and then you meet someone new who makes you feel fantastic again, and then that heart-stomper shows back up and you’re all like “Whatevaaaa!”  That’s what this song is all about, and I appreciate that it revels in that whole sore winner aspect of dating.  Of course, that only really works in high school, maybe some college, but by the time you get to your late twenties and early thirties and beyond, if one runs into that situations, it’s usually not cause for bitter jubilation (or in the case of this song, just jubilation).  No, Good Question, it’s usually just either really awkward or bittersweet or sad or if you’re not in a good place in your current relationship then it becomes what the kids call “It’s complicated” on Facebook.  But I’ll be honest, Good Question, I’ll admit that there may be a couple ladies from my past who if they showed up now and asked for me back it might feel maybe a little good to look them deep in the eyes and say “Na na na na, hey!”  Or maybe I’ll just play them your song.

“Got A New Love”

I used ta think you were the perfect one

I watched your every move, couldn’t get enough

I see ya in my dreams, always on my mind

You made me wish there was no end to time

You said we had
What they call the real thing

All I know
Is that ya took away the key

You gave your heart
Ta some-body new
But now he’s gone
Tell me what you’re gonna do, girl!

I got a new love now
And she really turns me on

I got a new love now, baby
Since you’ve been gone

I’ve been knocked about

And I thank you every day
For leavin’ me this way
Na na na na hey!

There was a time when I’d
Give ya anything

I’d walk a mile for you
In the pourin’ rain

You knew just what ta do, you played the game well

Just
One kiss from you, that’s when I fell

So many signs
You gave along the way

I always knew
You’d come back some day

I got a new love now
And she really turns me on

I got a new love now, baby
Since you’ve been gone

I’ve been knocked about

And I thank you every day
For leavin’ me this way
Na na na na hey!

Uh uh uh

I just want ta let you know

Baby, that’s the way it goes

No time for lies

It’s over now

Let’s just say good-bye
Ohhhh!

<awesome Good Question jam>

I got a new love now
And she really turns me on

I got a new love now, baby
Since you’ve been gone

Ooooo, yeah!

I got a new love now
