The Songs That Make Me Emotional (Part Three)


Once again, I'm veering just a little from the central idea of these posts. This one will be short. And it's about a song that makes me giggle.

Yes, I am a manly man and I openly admit that I giggle. I giggle, I laugh, I guffaw. It's all fair game to me. I like the rush of endorphins that I get when I laugh. Or giggle. Or guffaw. It really helps when I'm in the midst of a depression.

So, anyway, the song I want to discuss is called "I Get Off" by Halestorm.

Halestorm is a fairly recent discovery. They're a rock group with a female lead. In this song, the lead sings that she knows her male neighbor is watching her get undressed through her window. But she doesn't mind. In fact, she makes sure her light is on and the drapes opened so that he can see better.

The chorus starts "I get off on you getting off on me." I think the lead might just be trying to be Lita Ford. That's the impression I get anyway. The song is a rocking song that is just a little naughty.

And it makes me giggle.

Nothin' wrong with gigglin'. We do have a group of fellows here, "Manly Men," who with some degree of regularity attend "Manly Night," comprising dinner (usually almost raw burgers or steaks) and a movie our wives, girlfriends or companions wouldn't: The definitive "Manly Night Movie" is "From Dusk 'Til Dawn."

You sound as if you're doing a lot better.
