Love Songs: Stuck On You

Today's Love Song is another trip down memory lane for me.

It was the summer of 1984, I was 150 miles from home working a summer job between semesters at college. He was a handsome cowboy type.  And I fell head over heels in lust. Oh yes, this was going to be a summer to remember.

Lionel Richie's 2nd solo album "Can't Slow Down" had just been released. The song "Stuck on You" displays a country pop influence rather than R&B, and it marks Lionel Richie's country music debut.

Stuck on you
I've got this feeling down deep in my soul that I just can't lose
Guess I'm on my way
Needed a friend
And the way I feel now I guess I'll be with you 'til the end
Guess I'm on my way
Mighty glad you stayed

I'm stuck on you
Been a fool too long I guess it's time for me to come on home
Guess I'm on my way
So hard to see
That a woman like you could wait around for a man like me
Guess I'm on my way
Mighty glad you stayed

Oh, I'm leaving on that midnight train tomorrow
And I know just where I'm going
I've packed up my troubles and I've thrown them all away
'Cause this time little darling
I'm coming home to stay

I'm stuck on you
I've got this feeling down deep in my soul that I just can't lose
Guess I'm on my way
Needed a friend
And the way I feel now I guess I'll be with you 'til the end
Guess I'm on my way
I'm mighty glad you stayed

We played the album and this song probably a bit too often.

By the time I headed back to school in the fall, the summer romance was all but over.  But I will never forget...
