Song Lyric Sunday

This week our host Jim Adams for Song Lyric Sunday for has given us the prompt of Fiancé/Husband/Lover/Wife. I do know that if I choose to write about my wife I have to mention her KALON (30 Day Vocabulary Challenge).

Here are the “rules”:
• Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it contains the prompt words or not.  If it does not meet the criteria, then please explain why you chose this song.
• Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due.
• Make sure you also credit the singer/band and if you desire you can provide a link to where you found the lyrics.
• Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song.
• Ping back to this post or place your link in the comments section below.
• Read at least one other person’s blog, so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process.
• Feel free to suggest future prompts.
• Have fun and enjoy the music.

The song I choose became a hit in Australia on an album not released in America called “A Biography”. Riva Records became John Mellencamp label (then known as John Cougar) for his 3rd studio album called John Cougar. The song was titled “I NEED A LOVER” and it soon became a hit in the US. The song was written by John Mellencamp.

The John Cougar LP Album featuring “I Need a Lover”

In 1979 Pat Benatar covered the song on her debut album “In The Heat Of The Night”. Her album went on to be platinum.

On his inspiration for writing “I Need a Lover”, Mellencamp said: “The song’s about a friend of mine who goes to Concordia College. When that song was written, he was pretty sad. He was . . . livin’ in his bedroom. I told him, ‘You got to get the hell out of the house!’ He’d say, ‘Man, if I only had a girl, she’d make me forget my problems.’ I just said, ‘Well . . . ’”

One of the neat thing about this song which is about five minutes long is the 2 minutes and 30 second musical intro before the vocals. Here are the lyrics.

I m going to post two videos one by John Mellencamp and the second by Pat Benatar. Both videos are just audio.

You decide for yourself but for me I like John Mellencamp version the best.
