Romantic Love (expanded lyric) and some comments on the Three Bs of the creative process

Someone told me a long time ago that most great ideas come to fruition… or at least find their genesis… in one of the Three Bs: bed, bath and bus. For example, Professor Einstein had many of his ideas about Relativity… such as the slowing of time as one approaches the Speed of Light… while riding the train… which counts as a bus. So does a bicycle, motorcycle, pick-up truck or car. So does a tractor-trailer, tractor or lawn more. The idea is transportation or movement. Any repetitive task that occupies the conscious mind… can release the subconscious mind… to work on other ideas in the background… which may then spring… more or less fully formed into the conscious mind…. Gestalt….

Professor Einstein had his first idea… about gravity not being a force… but a curvature of Space-Time… when he fell asleep in his chair at his desk in the Swiss Patent Office. I guess that counts as bed.

I bring that up because I was awakened before my alarm went off this morning with this song in my head. Specifically with a couple of words for the Chorus… that were new. I started this song when I was in college. I remember sitting in my room in the ATO House and writing the beginnings of this song. We were just forming The Zeros….

That was January of 1980. Silly Little Lovesongs had just been named the Song of the Decade….

YIKES!!!

So… projects can lie fallow for a while… and then go all Monty Python. I’m not. dead. yet!

Took about 10-15 minutes to finish it!

Romantic Love

I’m looking for something more than just Romantic Love.
I want somebody. Could it be I want too much?
Don’t want no angel, just someone who really loves me.
Don’t want no demon who can thrill me with her touch-
‘Cuz I’ve seen it in the movies and I’ve watched it on T.V.
I’ve heard it on the radio, and that ain’t what I need.
Don’t need someone to use me or thrill me with delight.
I just want someone to hold me in the middle of the night!
I’m looking for something…
(He’s looking for something…)
Looking for something…
(Looking for something…)
Pure.
(He’s looking for something…)
Looking for something…
(Looking for something…)
Sure.
(He’s looking for something…)
Looking for something…
(Looking for something…)
Something that I can feel.
(He’s looking for something…)
Looking for something…
(Looking for something…)
I’m looking for something… REAL!

I’m looking for something more than just Romantic Love.
I want some lovin’ like my dad and momma had.
Someone who’s sexy… all gussied up or in her blue jeans.
Someone who’s funny… even when she’s mad.
Cuz I’ve read it in the papers and I’ve watched it on T.V.
Seen it in those tabloid magazines and that ain’t what I need.
I don’t need someone to control me, or who stays out late at night.
I just need someone to hug and kiss me when I come home from work at night.
I’m looking for something…
(He’s looking for something…)
Looking for something…
(Looking for something…)
Pure.
(He’s looking for something…)
Looking for something…
(Looking for something…)
Sure.
(He’s looking for something…)
Looking for something…
(Looking for something…)
Something that I can feel.
(He’s looking for something…)
Looking for something…
(Looking for something…)
I’m looking for someone who will make me SQUEAL!

I’m looking for something more than just Romantic Love.
I want somebody. Could it be I want too much?
I’ve tried an angel, but she never really loved me.
Been burned by demons who can thrill me with their touch-
You know I’ve seen it in the movies and I’ve watched it on T.V.
Listened it on the stereo, and that ain’t what I need.
Don’t need someone to use me… someone to thrill me with delight.
I just want someone to hold me in the middle of the night!
I’m looking for something…
(He’s looking for something…)
Looking for something…
(Looking for something…)
Pure.
(He’s looking for something…)
Looking for something…
(Looking for something…)
Sure.
(He’s looking for something…)
Looking for something…
(Looking for something…)
I’m looking for SO much more.
(He’s looking for something…)
Looking for something…
(Looking for something…)
I’m looking for something I ain’t never seen or felt before-ore-ore-ore!

Yeah… I’m looking for SOMETHING!
