Radio XL, side A, track 10: “Girl I’m Gonna Miss You” by Milli Vanilli

Milli Vanilli - Girl I'm Gonna Miss YouOh, Milli Vanilli, I’d like to reiterate one of my points from last year about you and the whole “scandal” that happened when it was discovered that the front-men of the group really were just front-men: who the hell cares?!?!  Seriously, Milli Vanilli, it’s been a long time since I’ve listened to this song, and I forgot how goddamn great it is.  So the two guys who were the face of Milli Vanilli were just lip-synching it?  BFD, as the kids say (do the kids still say that?).  You can’t listen to whoever is singing “I just don’t know what I should do” in this song, singing it with such intensity, that it really actually matters who actually sang it, can you?  It’s such a great moment in this song.  Hell, this whole song is a series of great moments.  And I fell in love with Milli Vanilli long before I saw any pictures of them and long before it was discovered that there was lip-synching going on.  And lip-synching on the radio is about the most moot a moot point can be.  If music is supposed to be about the music, and if everyone in Milli Vanilli was cool with whatever deal they had going with each other, then that whole business of asking for those Grammys back is a whole lot of horse pucky, as the kids say (I don’t think the kids actually say that anymore).

Whatever, Milli Vanilli.  I get that maybe I should take a stand on more pressing matters than a non-scandal that happened a few decades ago, but every time I hear one of your songs, I get a little pissed about the whole thing.  I really do miss you, Milli Vanilli.

“Girl I’m Gonna Miss You”

<awesome Milli Vanilli jam>

I knew it from the start
You would break my heart

But still I had to play this painful part

You wrapped me ’round your little bitty finger

With your magic smile

Ya kept me
Hangin’ on a lover’s cross a while

You put your spell on me

Took my breath away
But there was nothin’ I could do
Ta make you stay
I’m gonna miss you

All of the love I feel f’you

Nothing could
Make me change my point of view

Oh girl

I’m gonna miss you, baby

(Givin’ all the love I feel f’you)
(Couldn’t make you change ya point’a view)
(You’re leaviiiiin’)

(Now I’m sittin’ here)
(Wastin’ my time)
I just don’t know what I should doooooo

Iiit’s aaaa tragedy f’me ta see
The dream is oooveeeer
And I never will forget
The day we met
Girl, I’m gonna miss yooooou

<awesome Milli Vanilli jam>

Like a honey bee, you took the best of me

Now I can’t
Erase those memories
Like a fairy tale
You
Are so unreal

You left a scar that’s so hard ta heal

When ya had a taste’a paradise

Back on Earth can feel as cold as ice, I’m gonna miss you

I’m gonna miss you

I miss you

(Givin’ all the love I feel f’you)
(Couldn’t make you change ya point’a view)
(You’re leaviiiiin’)

(Now I’m sittin’ here)
(Wastin’ my time)
I just don’t know what I should doooooo

Iiit’s aaaa tragedy f’me ta see
The dream is oooveeeer
And I never will forget
The day we met
Girl, I’m gonna miss yooooou

(Iiit’s aaaa tragedy f’me ta see)
(The dream is oooveeeer)
And I never will forget
The day we met
Girl, I’m gonna miss yooooou
