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…
