Love You Like a Love Song Earwig

Every time Selena Gomez and the Scene’s song plays on the radio, my kids yell and beg from the back of the mini-van for me to turn it up.  It’s a cute song, so I don’t mind.  Like an 80s throwback, it’s got a good beat and it’s easy to dance to you.  Even the video is an 80s throwback.


 
And much like the bubble pop music of the 80s, this song will get stuck in my head for days. At least the lyrics are sweet so I don’t mind when they keep re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat-petaing in my head (except when that part plays over and over in my head).

It’s been said and done
Every beautiful thought’s been already sung
And I guess right now here’s another one
So your melody will play on and on, with the best of ’em
You are beautiful, like a dream come alive, incredible
A centerfold miracle, lyrical
You’ve saved my life again
And I want you to know baby

I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby

And I keep hitting re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat

I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby

And I keep hitting re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat

Constantly, boy you played through my mind like a symphony
There’s no way to describe what you do to me
You just do to me, what you do
And it feels like I’ve been rescued
I’ve been set free
I am hypnotized by your destiny
You are magical, lyrical, beautiful
You are… And I want you to know baby

I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby

And I keep hitting re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat

I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby

And I keep hitting re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat

No one compares
You stand alone, to every record I own
Music to my heart that’s what you are
A song that goes on and on

I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby

And I keep hitting re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat

I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby

I love you…like a love song…

When I really listened to the lyrics, I realized the song could be so much better than a bubble-gum pop hit.  If someone slowed it down and sang a more soulful version of it with just an acoustic guitar, you would then hear the beauty in the love song.

Surely, someone has figured that one out already.  I couldn’t be the only one.  (Nope, I’m not and don’t call me Shirley.)  

Although the volume of the video is very low, Dena’s version is definitely worth listening to, so crank it up.


 
I even found a tutorial guitar lesson, which I was sure to pass along to my guitar playing hubby.  Maybe he’ll serenade me for Valentine’s Day.

For that, I’ll love him like a love song and I’ll keep hitting re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat.

  1. This song was played at every video Break this past summer, on the disney or Family Channel. At first I was so very sick of it that I couldn’t listen, but with kids in the house holding the remote hostage? I didn’t have a choice.

  2. Even though I’ve heard this song an overabundance of times with Princess Nagger playing it over and over again, I still love it! And I have to confess, when I first glanced at your title, the song that immediately popped in my head was “Like a dog, like a dog, like a dog like Kipper, he’s Kipper the dog.” So that’s gotta tell you something about who influences a lot of music choices in our house. 😉

    LOVE the Dena version, too – thanks for sharing! 🙂

  3. Thanks for sharing both of those… I really didn’t care for the Selena Gomez version, I never was one for 80’s pop music – I am a rock and roller at heart. But, I do like soft, slow ballads and the version by Dena is really beautiful, thanks for finding it.

    I want to thank you SO much for taking care of visiting everyone for me over the last two weeks while I’ve been in such a funk because of Mai-Li. I am slowly getting better day by day and crying less often but still miss her terribly, so much reminds me of her. You and lots of other friends have helped me through my grief and I love you all so much for it. I have found the true meaning of friendship. HUGGLES!!

  4. With no little ones in the home I have never heard the Selena Gomez song and can’t say that I am sorry about that LOL. I did not find it endearing at all and I grew up in the 80’s but the second version was great and I enjoyed it a lot!!!

  5. She is just too too pretty. I really like her & you can tell she’s not a diva/snob. BUT why the heck she is dating that beaver or beeber or whatever the heck his name is is totally beyond me. She can have any one she wants & besides she’s too young anyway – live it up. Now that child in the second video she definitely has potential. Oh and didn’t you just love Selena’s eye make-up? Love your choices girlfriend – YOU SO ROCK!
