This Feelin’ That Won’t Subside

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme:

BOUNTY/DESSERT/EAT/FEAST/FOOD/HUNGRY/TURKEY

roastI will be interested to see if anyone features any songs about a turkey today.

Jack has confused me. We looked at Jim’s themes a while ago and he made a bunch of suggestions. I have a habit of starting posts with the video and lyrics and then finishing the post later when I have time. But when I looked through my drafts folder it was really hard to match which song was for which week’s theme.

Like many others, it instantly makes me think of the film “Dirty Dancing” – (“I carried a watermelon”!), but it also brings back another memory. Jack went through a phase of singing this song all the time, but especially at dinner parties. People loved it. We’d all be sitting around the dinner table…and he would start:

I’ve got this feelin’ that won’t subside
I look at you and I fantasize
You’re mine tonight
Now I’ve got you in my sights

With these hungry eyes
One look at you and I can’t disguise
I’ve got hungry eyes
I feel the magic between you and I

Love him! Did I mention that lately? Now, I just need him to go through my drafts folder with me and tell me which song is for which week’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY theme.

I’ve been meaning to tell you
I’ve got this feelin’ that won’t subside
I look at you and I fantasize
You’re mine tonight
Now I’ve got you in my sights

With these hungry eyes
One look at you and I can’t disguise
I’ve got hungry eyes
I feel the magic between you and I

I wanna hold you so hear me out
I wanna show you what love’s all about
Darlin’ tonight
Now I’ve got you in my sights

With these hungry eyes
One look at you and I can’t disguise
I’ve got hungry eyes
I feel the magic between you and I

Now I’ve got you in my sights
With these hungry eyes
Now did I take you by surprise
I need you to see
This love was meant to be

With these hungry eyes
One look at you and I can’t disguise
I’ve got hungry eyes
I feel the magic between you and I

Now I’ve got you in my sights
With these hungry eyes
Now did i take you by surprise
I need you to see
This love was meant to be.

I got Hungry Eyes

    1. Jack is very enthusiastic about SLS. When we are together on a Sunday, he wants to see what everyone has posted and he looks at the themes you have chosen and suggests songs to me. I got in a bit of a pickle though. It turns out this song was his choice for next week. But I already have a song chosen for next week.

    1. Thank you 🙂
      I think this was actually Jack’s choice for next week’s theme. I have no idea what happened to this week’s choice. I need to look further down the list of posts in my drafts folder.
      That hungry eyes look is something isn’t!
