Hurrah! It's Valentines Day today, and although the troposphere around Starbuck's world is always bathed in love, that emotion is very much in the air right now.
As exemplified by my internal jukebox.
"I think I'm in love, I think I'm in love" repeated in a glorious gospel stlye (although "think" is very much underplaying it, Mrs Powersurge, if you're reading this!).
Yes, I've got Spiritualized's wonderful "I Think I'm In Love" stuck in my head, which tends to rattle around at good times.
Ah, a such beautiful, uplifting, joyous song. Let's look up the lyrics shall we...
Sun so bright that I’m nearly blind Cool cos I’m wired and I’m out of my mind Warms the dope running down my spine But I don’t care ’bout you and I’ve got nothing to do Free as the warmth in the air that I breathe Even freer than dmt Feel the warmth of the sun in me But I don’t care ’bout you and I’ve got nothing to do Love in the middle of the afternoon Just me, my spike in my arm and my spoon Feel the warmth of the sun in the room But I don’t care ’bout you And I’ve got nothin’
I think I’m in love Probably just hungry I think I’m your friend Probably just lonely I think you got me in a spin now Probably just turning I think I’m a fool for you babe Probably just yearning I think I can rock and rool Probably just twisting I think I wanna tell the world Probably ain’t listening Come on
I think I can fly Probably just falling I think I’m the life and soul Probably just snorting I think I can hit the mark Probably just aiming I think my name is on your lips Probably complaining I think I have caught it bad Probably contagious I think I’m a winner baby Probably las vegas Come on
I think I’m alive Probably just breathing I think you stole my heart now baby Probably just thieving I think I’m on fire Probably just smoking I think that you’re my dream girl Probably just dreaming I think I’m the best babe Probably like all the rest I think that I could be your man Probably just think you can Come on
I think I’m in love
Erm... yes. Ahem. Somehow, in all of those hundreds of listens, I hadn't cottoned on to the exact nature of the song's subject matter. Oh no, my wife's gonna kill me... I've only gorn and accidentally endorsed the mainlining of hard drugs on this, the most saintly of Saints days traditionally dedicated to the celebration of the love of our sweethearts! Needles... ugh!
Harumph. That's put me right off "romancing" for one day... Sorry Mrs P, if you're wanting a portion of Starbuck this Valentine's Day then you're right out of luck. I'd be put right off my stroke!
