REASONS WHY I LOVE TEENA MARIE'S MIDNIGHT MAGNET

  1. The song came out in 1983 so I was 11 when I first heard it. I loved the music and the desperation in her voice immediately!
  2. At the time I didn't buy music so I had to wait for it to come on the radio so it was a real treat to hear it.
  3. The lyrics fascinated me even though I couldn't understand all of them. How often do you hear the word circumspect in a song?
  4. The song haunted me when I was in my late teens so I bought the tape it was on. I still have it.
  5. I think what stuck with me the most was the end of the song when she sings, "I thought you said you loved me." It gets me every time.
  6. It goes without saying that it's on my iPod.
