Love Is Not For Sale

Money can’t buy us love. This is unfortunate because love is such a good investment. Money brought human beings more order and chaos. It is not the root of all evil but it is a necessary evil. If money can’t buy love, then it should not be able to buy souls. Blackstreet’s (Money Can’t) Buy Me Love (1996) is a cover version of the Beatles’ Can’t Buy Me Love (1964). I love the cover but cannot stand the original. Both songs relate the same message. Let it sink in.

Before I Let You Go

My 20 year high school reunion is coming up this year. It’s hard for me to believe. It seems as if I turned 18 about 5 years ago. Time flies even when you’re not having fun. I have no intention of going to this function. I was miserable during my high school years. I went to an all-boys Catholic high school where I was assaulted by a priest, tormented by various peers, and nearly expelled for an act that was not my fault. I couldn’t wait to graduate. I did make a friend who ended up becoming the best friend I’ve ever had. As my mother says, out of the bad comes the good. When I graduated, my favorite song on the radio was Blackstreet’s Before I Let You Go (1994). It got massive airplay. It deserved it.
