I was going through the forumvision thread looking for something else, and listened to Paradise by the dashboard light just for the fun of it, and there is something that totally bothers me. Now in my experience, and I was 9 when this song came out so it would take a while before I got to this level of experience. But why in 1977 was there a girl, who was 17 and barely dressed asking;
"Will you never leave me?
Will you make me so happy
For the rest of my life?
Will you take me away
And will you make me your wife?"
Really?!? was the "summer of love" over? had Gloria Steinem not taken hold of the feminine mystique?
and then what the hell kind of answer is "Let me sleep on it." when you're in the backseat of a car "parking by the lake"? .....
It was long ago and it was far away,
And it was so much better than it is today.
