Radio XXXVIII, side B, track 7: “Come Home (With Me Baby)” by Dead Or Alive

Dead Or Alive - Come Home With Me BabyOh, Dead Or Alive, I don’t know if you’re gay or not, but I’m feeling like you might be, and for the sake of this post we’re going to pretend that you are because this song sums up my ineptness when it came to gay men.  I’ve already described my first experience with a friend who confided his homosexuality to me and how that led to another friend confiding his vampirism to me.  That was about the extent of my foray into the gay community during my college years.  But I did hang out at a couple of what were considered the local gay hangouts during my waning days of college.  This was St. Cloud, MN, you understand, so the only reason they were considered gay hangouts were most likely because a gay man had been spotted there once.  The younger gay men hung out at Bravo Burritos and the older men went to the Landmark Tavern.  I was a pretty heavy drinker, so I frequented both of them (amongst several others) fairly regularly.

The problem was, I didn’t actually realize that these were considered gay hangouts.  I just thought that the men were really friendly.  Luckily, one of my co-workers at the time was a big, burly, bearded, grizzly bear of a man who liked to dabble in a little bit of column A and little bit of column B, and unbeknownst to me, was something of my personal bodyguard.  I know it’s hard to believe in this day and age, Dead Or Alive, but I was unbelievably naive about a lot of things.  And so when guys would buy me drinks, it never dawned on me that it was like if I would buy a woman a drink (which, to be honest, I never had the courage to do).  And since I was a pretty friendly guy myself, I would buy the next round.  Looking back, I’m pretty sure I was probably considered something of a tease, because I sure enjoyed talking to those guys, and then I’d stumble out of the bar with my buddy, completely unaware that I had just led some guy on for two hours.

The reason I’m talking about this is because as I was listening to the lyrics of this song, I have a feeling that there were probably moments where guys were probably basically singing this fairly explicit song to me, and I was like “Yeah, this IS a great song!” and probably clapped them on the back and went and got them another drink.  Hell, Dead Or Alive, if they would have asked me if I’d have wanted to come over and watch a movie or something, I’m sure I would have said yes, and who knows what kind of stories I’d be writing on this blog.  So thanks for the great song, Dead Or Alive, and to all those guys I bought drinks for back in the day, I’m really sorry for the mixed messages. . .
