I didn't know that the Saturday’s party at Hudson Terrace was a Single's mixer. Fortunately for me there were a LOT of good and tasty options for a single lady, but of course my priorities were in check. Play the songs first, then play (with) the boys later.
For some reason, I was in the mood to play Eminem's “Love The Way You Lie.” Sonically its beautiful, emotionally its truly intense but unfortunately it's very slow and not 'dance floor friendly'. Eminem is an amazing artist but instead of making us want to shake our booties he just makes us want to sit and listen. I figured, however I could sneak in 1 verse and 1 hook, during the first 20mins, before people were warmed up and ready to dance.
Oddly enough there was one girl that got really into it and she wasn’t exactly ‘subtle’ as to how much she was FEELING this song. She was probably a little tipsy, and I don't think she fully understood the impression she was giving to her potential suitors. If you don't understand what I'm talking about let me just ask. Would YOU want to ask out someone who was emotionally drawn to lyrics like “ I like the way it hurts” or “You push, pull each other's hair scratch, claw, bit 'em throw 'em down” ? (and please note that Eminem is NOT referring to kinky sex here, he is talking about the love of his life).
Kind of seems like a red flag doesn’t it?
