25 Songs in 25 Days Challenge – Day Fifteen

A song you love singing along to

This one was a big fucking DUH for me.

Georgia Satellites “Keep Your Hands to Yourself”

I’ve actually had to write this post while they weren’t singing, that’s how strong the pull is to sing along for me. And really, it’s totally understandable. The music is great, the lyrics are hilarious – it’s musical storytelling at its finest. It also spoke to the mentality of a lot of men at the time. They were perfectly alright with having a relationship with a woman provided the woman didn’t insist on a legal commitment. (see also:  Meatloaf “Paradise by the Dashboard Light”)
