Since it is commonly agreed that aspie women have it harder than men, I thought I'd start with a little bon mot from 'Wishin' and Hopin'' by Dusty Springfield.

She fires things off with a powerful opening salvo:

Quote:
Wishin' and hopin' and thinkin' and prayin'
Plannin' and dreaming each night of his charms
That won't get you into his arms


She clearly gives no credence to the power of prayer or the 'law of attraction'. Then she goes on:

Quote:
So if you're lookin' to find love you can share
All you gotta do is
Hold him and kiss him and love him
And show him that you care


And as if that wasn't clear enough, she now offers more specific advice, and then reiterates her opening sentiment:

Quote:
Show him that you care just for him
And do the things he likes to do
Wear your hair just for him, 'cause
You won't get him
Thinkin' and a-prayin'
Wishin' and a-hopin'


I hope that helps.

The prey of the beast screamed bloody murder
The line is so fine between hoping and hurting
Former believers, they beg for release
As love looking down on them smiles and picks his teeth

Trapped in between heaven and hell
He knows all the secrets you don't want to tell


There's nowhere to run and there's nowhere to hide
Love knows you all too well, he will find you

Love is the ghost haunting your head
Love is the killer you thought was your friend
Love is the creature who lives in the dark
Sneak up, will stick you and painfully pick you apart

Love is a poet, love sings the songs
Pointing his finger you follow along
Voices are calling, the monster wants out of you
Paws you and claws you, you try not to fall

Love is the leech, sucking you up
Love is a vampire, drunk on your blood
Love is the beast that will tear out your heart
Hungrily lick it and painfully pick it apart

Love is the leech, sucking you up
Love is a vampire, drunk on your blood
Love is the beast that will tear out your heart
Hungrily lick it and painfully pick it apart

Love is a ghost, haunting your head
Love is the killer you thought was your friend
Love is the teacher who lives in the dark
Sneak up and stick you and painfully pick you apart

Your used to wearing less and now your lifes a mess
Insecure you see.

Take your hands from me. I don't belong to you you see
Take one look at my face for the last time
I didn't know you you didnt know me
say hello goodbye
say hello wave goodbye

This lesson for the hard-up Aspie women (LOL Moog) comes courtesy of The Marvelettes and their song 'The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game'.

Waxing philosophical in the first verse:

Quote:
Everyday things change
And the world puts on a new face
Certain things rearrange
And this whole world seems like a new place


She then confesses that she went all Sun Tzu, Art Of War on his derrière:

Quote:
Oh yeah, secretly I've been trailin' you
Like a fox that prays on the rabbit
I had to get you and so I knew
I had to learn your ways and your habits


But you can't out-think these things:

Quote:
Ooooh, you were the catch that I was after
But I looked up, and I was in your arms
And I knew I had been captured


The best laid plans of mice and (wo)men!

Quote:
Oh yeah, I had laid such a tender trap
Hoping you might fall into it
But love hit me like a sudden slap
One kiss, and then I knew it

Ooooh, my plan didn't work out like I thought
I had laid my trap for you
But it seems that I got caught


Something to think about.

where as I have never listened to her music and just know facts.

on another theme, do you think its an attractive trait in men, to let their misogyny show in digs at women(or the relative hardships of them)?

I don't know if this is aimed at me or not but I wasn't having a dig at women. My post above is double-dipped in irony with a pinch of sarcasm on top... I'm not sure even I understand it. :lol:

Is that what you think I was doing? I just thought I was having a little amusement. I think the 'who has it harder' thing is pointless and I have very little interest in it.

Why do I get the feeling that there are lots of women who love whatever song this is, and worship whatever douchebag either mumbled it or "sang" it through Autotune?

Probably because there are quite a few, but I think the sophisticated population of Wrong Planet would prefer the lyrics if they didn't sound so "ghetto", so...
