Ode to Special and Exciting Geek Girls and Geek Guys



Since I started the Fireworks and Teenage Dreams Blog Series, my research have led me, to examine my own personal history, as Geek  kid,  and, as a Geek Teenager, and all of this work has made me think of what I would called “Geek Love Songs.”

Now, What are “Geek Love Songs?”

They are love songs that both geeks guys and geek girls would listening, to and, to express our feelings,  about someone we  liked or had a crush on, but being geeks, most of us were either too shy, to tell the person, about  our affections, for them, or the person was already, in a relationship, but, with these songs, we could hope, we could believe that someway and somehow, we could gather our courage, to tell that person how we felt for that person when the moment or  was right.  Therefore, I have complied 18 “Geek Love Songs” that spanned my entire life and I hope, in part, these songs also spanned our Geek Generation.

The title, itself, is somewhat a geekish title because the word ode, is borrowed,  from the Ode to Joy, “by  German poet, playwright and historian Friedrich Schiller,” which  gained massive popularity, when it was used, as somewhat, of a them song, in the first Die Hard movie. The  ”Special and Exciting” part comes, from the title and the opening lyric, from the R & B group Ray Goodman & Brown song, Special Lady.

So, in  combining the  words of Marvin Berry (Harry Waters Jr.), from Back to The Future, and Paul McCartney, from, one of his Back in the USA concerts, “This is for all your geek girls and geek guys lovers out there and tonight this for all those who ever loved a geek girl or a geek guy and, you know, who you are.”

So true … Funny how it seems …

Always in time, but never in line for dreams.

Head over heels, when toe to toe,

This is the sound of my soul.

I bought a ticket to the world,

But now I’ve come back again.

Why do I find it hard to write the next line?

When I want the truth to be said.

With a thrill in my head and a pill on my tongue,

Dissolve the nerves that have just begun.

Listening to Marvin all night long.

This is the sound of my soul.

You must understand,

That the touch of your hand,

Makes my pulse react,

That it’s only the thrill,

Of boy meeting girl,

Opposites attract.

In my life there’s been heartache and pain,

I don’t know if I can face it again,

Can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far,

To change this lonely life,

I wanna know what love is,

I want you to show me.

I’m gonna take a little time,

A little time to look around me,

I’ve got nowhere left to hide,

It looks like love has finally found me.

See the stone set in your eyes,

See the thorn twist in your side,

I wait for you,

Sleight of hand and twist of fate,

On a bed of nails she makes me wait,

And I wait without you,

With or without you,

I can’t live with or without you.

Just Kiss Me Baby,

And Tell Me Twice,

That You’re The One For Me,

The Way You Make Me Feel.

Don’t go for second best baby,

Put your love to the test,

You know, you know, you’ve got to,

Make him express how he feels,

And maybe then you’ll know your love is real.

So if you want it right now, make him show you how,

Express what he’s got, oh baby ready or not.

Look into my eyes – you will see,

What you mean to me,

Search your heart – search your soul,

And when you find me there you’ll search no more,

Everything I do – I do it for you.

[it's a] Tale as old as time,

[its as] True as it can be,

[its a] Song as old as rhyme.

I hope life treats you kind,

And I hope,

you have all you’ve dreamed of,

And I wish you joy,

and happiness,

But above all this,

I wish you love,

I will always love you.

I can show you the world,

Shining, shimmering, splendid,

Tell me, princess, now when did,

You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes,

Take you wonder by wonder,

Over, sideways and under,

On a magic carpet ride,

A whole new world,

A new fantastic point of view,

No one to tell us no,

Or where to go,

Or say we’re only dreaming,

A whole new world.

Don’t you dare close your eyes,

Hold your breath – it gets better,

Every turn a surprise,

With new horizons to pursue,

Let me share this whole new world with you.

I see the questions in your eyes,

I know what’s weighing on your mind,

You can be sure I know my part,

Cause I stand beside you through the years,

You’ll only cry those happy tears,

And though I make mistakes,

I’ll never break your heart.

I’ll give you every thing I can,

I’ll build your dreams with these two hands,

We’ll hang some memories on the wall,

And when (and when) just the two of us are there,

You won’t have to ask if I still care,

Cause as the time turns the page,

My love won’t age at all.

Close your eyes, make a wish,

And blow out the candlelight,

For tonight is just your night,

We’re gonna celebrate, all thru the night,

Pour the wine, light the fire,

Girl your wish is my command,

I submit to your demands,

I’ll do anything, girl you need only ask.

Girl relax, let’s go slow,

I ain’t got nowhere to go,

I’m just gonna concentrate on you.

They read you Cinderella,

You hoped it would come true,

And one day a prince charming would come rescue you,

You like romantic movies,

And you never will forget,

The way it felt when [spider-Man kissed Mary-Jane, for the first time],

And all this time that you’ve been waiting,

You don’t have to wait no more,

I can love you like that.

If you want tenderness,

I’ve got tenderness,

And I see through to the heart of you,

If you want a man,

Who will understand,

You don’t have to look very far.

We were as one, babe,

For a moment in time,

And it seemed everlasting,

That you would always be mine,

Now you wanna be free,

So I’ll let you fly,

‘Cause I know in my heart, babe,

Time can’t erase a feeling this strong (no no no no),

No way, you’re never gonna shake me (oh),

Ooh, darling, ’cause you’ll always be my baby.

Oh, when you walk by every night,

Talking sweet and looking fine,

Darling, if you only knew.

When I close my eyes,

You come and you take me,

So deep in my daydreams,

But it’s just a sweet, sweet fantasy, baby.

I’m in heaven,

With my boyfriend,

My lovely boyfriend,

There’s no beginning,

And there is no end.

I am thinking of you,

In my sleepless solitude tonight,

If it’s wrong to love you,

Then my heart just won’t let me be right,

‘Cause I’ve drowned in you,

And I won’t pull through,

Without you by my side.

I’d give my all to have,

Just one more night with you.

I am thinking of you,

Without any make-up on,

You think I’m funny,

When I tell the punch line wrong,

I know you get me,

So I let my walls come down.

No regrets, just love,

You and I,

We’ll be young forever.

My heart stops,

When you look at me,

Now baby I believe,

This is real,

So take a chance,

And don’t ever look back,

My heart stops,

When you look at me,

Now baby I believe,

This is real,

So take a chance,

And don’t ever look back,

You make me,

Feel like,

I’m living a Teenage Dream.

To all my geek readers, out there, here are some questions, about this Ode to Special and Exciting Geek Girls and Geek Guys.  First, What are the song titles, for all eighteen “Geek Love Songs,”  in this ode? Second, what is the release date, for each song. Finally, after finding, the finding both the song titles and release dates, does any of these songs bring up memories or past feelings, for some geek girl or geek guy, you knew, growing up, who you wanted, to say or, to experience, everything that ode said, to that person?
