SLS: Obsession

Aston Martin Bond

There are a lot of songs about cars, which is the theme this week for Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday, but I chose one that uses a car as a metaphor. It’s also fitting because just this week some of us discussed hitchhiking and its inherent risks… love is also risky.

Love is a stranger in an open car
To tempt you in
And drive you far away…

“Love Is A Stranger” was written by Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart of the Eurythmics. It flopped in 1982, but was re-released in 1983 after their success with “Sweet Dreams.” It reached No. 6 in the UK and No. 23 in the US. Personally, I think it’s a stronger song with more interesting lyrics than “Sweet Dreams,” which hit No. 1, but to each their own. Love this video too…

  2. Wow. So many car songs. Back then I loved cars. Now, it all seems kind of strange–people my age, it’s all about how much they cost. Always a competition, in some form.

    • Yeah. As a teen, I could just drive all day because it was so much fun. Even when I first moved to California, I’d drive for hours for no reason. Now it’s the most unappealing thing…

  4. Nice choice Paula as I really like the music and the video is fun to watch. I am pretty sure that this Eurythmics song is called Love Is A Stranger and not Obsession, but when I searched for Obsession this is what came up, so there must be some kind of a link.

  5. Good song, and I’d never heard it before. Good music, too. 🙂
