Music Monday: I Miss You Like Crazy, I Have Nothing
Please scroll down for Monday Mayhem

Songs of your youth – why does it sound so distant? (lol). I picked a song each from 1988 and 1993, years very significant to me when life was budding.

There’s something I am trying to analyze nowadays. It turns out harder than the research project I am working on. How can you miss someone so much when all that connects you two in the past is a silly high school drama? Maybe that’s why this Natalie Cole hit says like crazy because longing for someone you haven’t even had communication with in 22 years does sound crazy. Modern technology enables us hours of talking and virtual dinners together. But merging that with the lives we lived without each other does not make sense to me. Crazy is the only explanation I can think of right now. Not that I’m about to operationalize psychoticism and neuroticism in my research. This thing going on is something else.

It amazes me how Whitney Houston emphasizes I have nothing, nothing… if I don’t have you when she sings her Bodyguard soundtrack. I must have been this adamant that whatever I have is enough; that I don’t need a man to say it’s a beautiful life, duh. But maybe, well, I like the song; I will keep an open mind about female independence.

Either Sony has blocked playing in certain countries or embedding is disabled. This is the best substitute I could find.
