Don't look at me like that! - Unbeliever's Land
...The continuing chronicles...
Don't look at me like that!
OK, I am *NOT* the only person who has made this mistake.

Furthermore, I've known for a quarter-century that I HAD to be mistaken.

HAD to be.

But you know, the internet wasn't around a quarter-century ago, and the song just doesn't play that often these days.

I simply never had occasion to actually bother to look up the proper lyrics until just now.

And remember, Not Religious!  So you know, how would I have known?

Swear to god, for twenty-five years, I've been hearing:

Carry a laser down the road that I must travel...
Carry a laser through the darkness of the night...
Carry a laser where I'm going will you follow?
Carry a laser on a highway in the night.

(I dunno, I'm picturing some dude out to cause some serious traffic accidents...?)

And when I finally looked it up just now, I *STILL* spent a couple of minutes wondering who the hell "Kyrie Eleison" was...

(Usually songs about women only use the first name; I thought including both felt pretty damned specific...)

Anyway, all better now.  But had to share...

Current Emotional State: dorky dumb

Who are you, madam, and what have you done with my wife?

For I believe we both know that my wife never posts to LJ anymore -- and weighs over 150 pounds more than you.

Why, you hardly look a thing like her... ;)

I don't believe I was clued in to the correct lyrics of that song until I started dating a lapsed Catholic in college. Perhaps you remember her -- brunette ... chemist ... currently snoring on our couch ...

*laugh* The Kyries I know don't have all that other stuff, which I can definitely understand militating toward lasers. :D

I *STILL* think Kyrie Eleison sounds like a French girl. Or maybe Irish... ;)

No, Reed, It's Just You.

I hung around with too many Christians in high school, and (perhaps this is cheating) had seen the video many times, which includes the title.
