One time when I was moving I saw a tape in a box and it was a Cassingle of this song.  A cassingle.  A whole tape with just one song on it!  How the hell did they get people to buy those?  Did you know when CD’s came out they were cheaper to make than records or tapes but the record companies still charged more for them cause they had LASERS associated with them and everyone still paid it? So I guess since they ripped us off so much on the CD’s maybe they had the whole “stealing songs off the Internet” thing comin’.

As for “Joey”, I can remember listening to this like 5000000 times in a car driving from Portland, Maine to Watertown, Connecticut.  On a CD.  That I paid too much for.  So now I’m gonna go download it off of Pirate Bay and then probably never listen to it again.  Or else I’m gonna wander around my house yelling “AND WHEN YOU SAID I SCARED YOU WELL I GUESS YOU SCARED ME, TOO!” for an hour.  It’s a good song, after all.  Video and lyrics after the jump.

Concrete Blonde – Joey

Joey, Baby- Don’t get Crazy,
Detours, Fences,
I get Defensive

I know you’ve heard it all before,
So I dont say it anymore,
I just stand by and let you fight your secret war.
And though I used to wonder why,
I used to cry till I was dry,
Still sometimes I get a strange pain inside.

Oh, Joey, if you’re hurtin’, so am I.

Joey, Honey
I got the money
All is forgiven.
Listen, listen.

And if I seem to be confused,
I didn’t mean to be with you.
And when you said I scared you,
Well, I guess you scared me too.
But we got lucky once before,
And I don’t wanna close the door.
And if you’re somewhere out there,
and passed out on the floor.

Oh Joey, I’m not angry anymore.

And if I seem to be confused,
I didn’t mean to be with you.
And when you said I scared you,
Well, I guess you scared me too.
But if it’s love you’re looking for,
Then I can give a little more.
And if you’re somewhere drunk and
passed out on the floor.
Oh Joey, I’m not angry anymore.

…angry anymore…
…angry anymore…
