Radio XXXII, side A, track 7: “The Way You Love Me” by Karyn White

Karyn White - The Way You LoveOh, Karyn White, the best thing about forgetting a song is when you get to remember it again.  When I was looking at my tape, I saw “I Love The Way You Love Me” scribbled in, and I couldn’t for the life of me remember what song this was, much less who sang it.  And then I started listening, and at first I wasn’t sure, and then I heard you sing “Hey, baby.  Ya drivin’ me crazy.”  And I was like “Karyn White!  Yeeeeah!  I remember this song!”  And I was sitting there, enjoying it, and then we got to that part where you just start singing all these words super fast and I was like “Oh YEEEEEAH!  I LOVE this part!”  Of course, back in the day, I had no idea what you were singing besides “‘Cause when I think about. . .”, so I’d just sing a bunch of gobbledygook alongside you and I’m sure I sounded the fool, but now I know the lyrics and I can sing the exact words right along with you, though I probably still sound the fool.

I wish I could say that I love the way you love me, Karyn White, but alas, you have no idea who I am or what an amazing singer I think you are.  BUT, I do love the way you sing to me.  Even if maybe you’re not actually singing to ME, but I’ll take what I can get.

“The Way You Love Me”
