Guilty Musical Pleasures: Lou Gramm – Midnight Blue

This is part of yet another new series (not going to number them) where I mention rock/pop songs/albums/bands that I enjoy, even though I know I probably shouldn’t.

This entry is for Lou Gramm’s “Midnight Blue” song.  I think all that needs to be done to indicate why this song should not be liked is to relate the following lyrics:

I remember what my father said
He said "Son, life is simple"
It's either cherry red or...
Midnight Blue...


I won't apologize for
The things I've done and said
But when I win your heart,
I'm gonna paint it cherry red


Okay, so are you supposed to favor ‘Cherry Red’ or ‘Midnight Blue’?  The title suggests the latter, but then why is he going to paint his love’s heart the former?

And yet, I really enjoy listening to this song.  It needs a ripping guitar solo, but otherwise, it’s a lot of fun.  In a pathetic, guilty pleasure sort of way.

Trust me bro, from the meaning of the whole song "Midnight Blue" is definitely the one being favored overall. Sure, you paint somebody's heart cherry red, but in the end all you really care about is "the midnight blue", if you catch my drift!

It's hard to argue against that.

It's hard to argue in favor of that since I don't know what the hell it means, even if I get the drift (yeah, baby!).
