Music Monday (80s Edition): “Love Somebody” by Rick Springfield

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew @The Tattooed Book Geek. All you have to do is pick a favorite song or video and share it on Mondays.

This week I’m sharing the video for Love Somebody by Rick Springfield. This was my favorite song forever, and I still love it all these years later. Springfield has always been one of my favorite artists, so he’ll likely be featured on Music Monday several times.

Check out the video, and enjoy!

Lyrics:

I can see the path you’re cutting
It cost me a little piece of my heart
I can see the doors you’re shutting
‘Cause they were open at the startBaby, loving you has been hard on me
You’re such a tough little sister
Just looking for Mr. Right
On the wrong side of townYou better love somebody
It’s late
You better love somebody
Don’t wait
You better love somebody
Don’t tempt fate
You’re gonna push it just a little too far
One nightYour eyes are wild, your skin’s so white
You’re undernourished and overfed
She’s got the teeth, she knows how to bite
‘Cause when you bit I bled

You got the perfect image
Of the perfect man
You’re a tough little sister
But you’ll settle for a mister tonight
But you’re running out of time

You better love somebody
It’s late
You better love somebody
Don’t wait
You better love somebody
Don’t tempt fate
You’re gonna push it just a little too far
One night

I’m only saying what I feel
You think I’m wrong I know
You thought I was sleeping at the wheel
I thought that you were driving

You better love somebody
You better love somebody

You better love somebody
It’s late
You better love somebody
Don’t wait
You better love somebody
Don’t tempt fate
You’re gonna push it just a little too far
One night

One night – oh oh oh oh
One night – oh oh oh oh
One night – oh oh oh oh
One night – oh oh oh oh

    • Well, now you know about this one song, at least. 😉 The older I get, the more I want to hear the songs I loved when I was a kid. I wish I’d started doing this meme sooner, because I’m having so much fun with it!
