The next song is Maneater by Hall and Oates. No, not the one by Nelly Furtado. Although I have to admit I like that song too. I think the reason I chose this song was because of the previous song. I have to admit if I hear Heat of the Moment, then immediately this song comes to mind. I don’t think it’s because their release was in the same year (1982), but because this song reminds me of being a teenager in Japan.
Actually I remember exactly the first time I heard this song. We were in Shinjuku, going up (or down) an escalator then. This song was playing in a store, and my friend turned to me and she said, “this is a really good song!” I had mentioned to her that I didn’t know it, and never heard it before, and she proceeded to tell me I should get into this band, as they were really cool. Again I won’t mention any names of who was there. And this conversation might have been in Japanese. Actually I think it was in Japanese.
But honestly this song totally reminds me of her, and that time. This is not to say she was a maneater, like the song implies, but rather it reminds me of her because of the situation. Although I have to admit my friend had a crush on her, and she was rather pretty. I think my friend was rather obsessed. It was a heavy crush. Although not as heavy as the crush he had on an upperclassman.
Here is the video, I promise to include these when I write these posts. Enjoy! Video after the bump.
