Denise Fleming was right

Published March 6, 2013 by Lynda Christine Rodriguez

Hi, I’m a big nerd who watches entirely too much television.

Now that that’s out of the way (and I’m sure not many people needed the clarification) One of my favorite movies, because it appeals to my need for purposeful randomenity, the liberal use of cheese and hilarious in-jokes while still being available for mass viewing is “Can’t Hardly Wait.” This is also the name of one my favorite Replacements songs (my favorite is, ironically, “Favrite Thing.”) I am greatly disappointed that the song doesn’t appear til the closing credits.)

Denise Fleming, played by the fabulous Lauren Ambrose says that Kenny Fisher, portrayed by the equally fabulous Seth Green, is practically holding himself up for public mockery, what with his hip hoppery and self-delusion that he has any kind of street cred.

I always hear her voice in my head when I hear the song “Lips of an Angel”, as yarled by the angsty-in -the-pantsy- Hinder.  Yet, I keep this on my “get ready” playlist because the song makes me SO DAMN ANGRY that I can get cranked up to do just about anything else that will involve me NOT  to have to listen to this song anymore.

There are many, many reasons why I hate this song, but I think if you read the lyrics you might find a few of your own.  So here, for your angsty convenience, held up for public mockery, thanks to the good people at AZ lyrics

Lips Of An Angel”

Honey why you calling me so late?
It’s kinda hard to talk right now.
Honey why are you crying? Is everything okay?
I gotta whisper ’cause I can’t be too loud

Well, my girl’s in the next room
Sometimes I wish she was you
I guess we never really moved on
It’s really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet
Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak

And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

It’s funny that you’re calling me tonight
And, yes, I’ve dreamt of you too
And does he know you’re talking to me
Will it start a fight
No I don’t think she has a clue

Well my girl’s in the next room
Sometimes I wish she was you
I guess we never really moved on
It’s really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet
Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak

And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

It’s really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet
Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak

And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

Honey why you calling me so late?

And, if you are so inclined, you could even go to the website and have the song sent to your mobile device, perhaps to set as your alarm so you could leap into the air to smash your phone into tiny bits, thus ensuring  you will actually get up: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/hinder/lipsofanangel.html
