I am stealing American Idol’s theme this week for my Friday’s Song. If you are not a fan of the show, let me explain. This week they had the contestants pick a song from the year they were born. I, was born in 1973 (This might explain why I tend to love earthy music) so, I thought I would check to see what songs were popular that year. I could have chosen ten that I love but decided to go with the Rolling Stones. This week’s song is Angie.

My interpretation of the song: Two souls destined to meet, fall in love but realize love alone will not take them where they need to go. After much thought,  one decides it may be better to separate even though he will never meet a woman like her again. I think in life that happens all of the time. To me, this song is about the one that got away, or the one you let go.

What are you listening to? 

Angie/Lyrics

Angie, angie, when will those clouds all disappear?
Angie, angie, where will it lead us from here?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You cant say were satisfied
But angie, angie, you cant say we never tried
Angie, youre beautiful, but aint it time we said good-bye?
Angie, I still love you, remember all those nights we cried?
All the dreams we held so close seemed to all go up in smoke
Let me whisper in your ear:
Angie, angie, where will it lead us from here?
Oh, angie, dont you weep, all your kisses still taste sweet
I hate that sadness in your eyes
But angie, angie, aint it time we said good-bye?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You cant say were satisfied
But angie, I still love you, baby
Evrywhere I look I see your eyes
There aint a woman that comes close to you
Come on baby, dry your eyes
But angie, angie, aint it good to be alive?
Angie, angie, they cant say we never tried
