Thinking of Suzanne - Raised on Radio

Thinking of Suzanne – Raised on Radio

Raised on radio, I still listen
to haunting love songs that sadly
remind me of you, lovely Suzanne, 
of times when we couldn’t get enough
of each other, body and soul blazing with fire.
Oh Baby, I prayed with all my heart
that it could have been you;
you with the eyes of a woman,
so perceptive, so desirable, and so in love;
you with your soft, warm, positive touch,
that arouses and electrifies all my senses;
always unselfishly happy to give 
totally and unconditionally to me.
But now you say it’s all over.
You say you don’t love me anymore.
Please stay, don’t take the magic away.
Why can’t this night go on forever?
Oh girl, can’t help it, you’re my life;
and once you love somebody,
letting go is the hardest thing to do.
But somehow, I’ll survive and 
I’ll be alright without you.
So my sweet love, be good to yourself,
and just know this man will think of you, 
when our special song plays on the radio.


The above poem incorporated Album #2 Tracks (in bold above) from Raised on Radio by Journey:

Girl Can`t help it, Positive Touch, Suzanne, Be Good to Yourself, Once You Love Somebody, Happy to Give, Raised on Radio, I`ll be Alright Without You, It Could have been You, The Eyes of a Woman, Why Can't this Night Go on Forever

YOu really did an amazing job. I just had to see yours because this is also the one I started working on tonight (the same song as you chose) I am making mine personal and it's hard to use the exact line because I am writing from the woman's viewpoint instead of the man's. I think you should be congratulated for doing this so well. (are you sure about the number of lines? I thought there was a limit to them. I better recheck that!)

Thank you so much for your high praises, Andie! The number of lines should range between 20-25 and mine is 25 lines so it should be ok. I already know yours will be great from the perspective of the woman! Thank you again! Pandita

Well done, Pandita!! You did a great job! Had there been no bold lettering, I would not have realized that the poem was based on the titles...so natural in the flowing way you expressed it. // paul

Thank you so much, dear Jan for the compliments and the high score! This one was so challenging and I really had to work hard to bring it all together especially since I approached it from the point of view of a male:-)! Thanks again and have a nice evening! Pandita

WOW! My dear Pandita, what a wonderful piece this is bringing this track to life in such a creative write. You skillfully transformed the titles of this track into an entirely original song that flows so beautifully. This is definitely a winner in my book and a 7! Kika
