Music Video of the Day: I Want Your Love by Chic (1979, directed by ????)


I can relate to the title of this song, as I think almost everyone can.  The love of the title doesn’t just have to refer to romantic love.  It can also just mean being loved as in being appreciated or admired or praised or …. well, really whatever you mean for it to mean.  There’s all sorts of love out there.  Everyone wants to be loved and sometimes, that mean exhausting yourself trying to see every movie released in one year in just two weeks.  Not that I’m speaking from personal experience, of course…. heh heh…. 

Watching this video, I found myself a bit upset with myself for having never learned how to play the violin.  It’s a neat little instrument and there’s no way you can’t look transcendent while playing it.  Oh well.  We’ll chalk that up as missed opportunity, I guess.  To be honest, I have a feeling I’d end up putting out someone’s eye with that big bow that they use so I guess it’s for the best that I never learned.

Good song, though.  You can dance to it.  You can laugh to it.  You can cry to it.  This song came out in 1979 and, as we all know, the 70s were the best!

Enjoy!

I want your love
I want your love
I want your love
I want your love


Do you feel like you ever want
To try my love and see how well it fits?
Baby, can’t you see when you look at me
I can’t kick this feelin’ when it hits


All alone in my bed at night
I grab my pillow and squeeze it tight
I think of you and I dream of you all of the time
What am I gonna do?


I want your love
I want your love
I want your love
I want your love


I want your love
I want your love
I want your love
I want your love


Sometime, don’t you feel like you
Never really had a love that’s real?
Well, here I am and who’s to say
A better love you won’t find today


Just one chance and I will show you love
Like no other, two steps above
On your ladder I’ll be a peg
I want your lovin’, please don’t make me beg


I want your love
I want your love
I want your love
I want your love


I want your love
I want your love
I want your love
I want your love


I want your love
I need your love
I’ll share my dreams and make you see
I’m really there, your love I need


I want your love
I need your love
Just like the birds need sky above
I’ll share my dreams and make you see
I’m really there, your love I need


I want your love
I want your love
I want your love
I want your love


I want your love
I want your love
I want your love
I want your love
