Here's another song from my Psychic Jukebox, one that's popped up several times for me in the last week (maybe more).
Three things come to mind with this Eddie Money song, but I feel like I should add that because music is so personal, you might feel something else, and that is totally valid!
The first thing I get from "Take Me Home Tonight" is directly from the lyrics of the song. This is about being honest, and telling someone you love exactly how you're feeling and what you want. We don't always like to do that. It makes us vulnerable in a way that we often find scary.
But you should be able to do that with someone you love (and just as importantly, with someone who loves you).
Be bold. Be honest. Tell them how you feel.
The next thing I get is from the background of this song. Eddie Money wanted to get legendary singer Ronnie Spector to re-visit the Ronettes' "Be My Baby" in the chorus of the song. Ronnie told him she was out of the music business and didn't do that any more. He persisted, and convinced her to do it.
As "Take Me Home Tonight" became a big hit, Ronnie decided to restart her signing career. She went on to workd with a wide variety of artists, including Joey Ramone, Keith Richards, Patti Smith, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and many more.
To me, that's a reminder that you should never give up on your dreams. Just because you can't do it today, or you can't even see a pathway to getting where you want to be, doesn't mean it will never happen. Hang in there, and don't give up!
And lastly, this is one of those songs that my wife and I disagree about. Specifically, about the lyrics. And even when I confront her with official lyrics from the artist, her response is that those might be what the words are supposed to be, but that's not what he's singing.
Does it matter which one of us is right? Not really. In the grand scheme of things, this is pretty unimportant.
And I think this song is also a reminder to choose your battles carefully. Don't let something trivial become a big deal. And don't get so entrenched in the need to be right that you can't see anything else.
I've posted Eddie's appearance (with Ronnie Spector) on Solid Gold, performing this song after it became a big hit. I often find listening to the music helps clarify the messages.
Spirits and Angels love music, and love to give us messages through music. This song comes from my Psychic Jukebox, which has over twenty thousand songs in it. I set it to play randomly, and ask my guides and angels to give me the song that was the message that was needed.
I also use my Psychic Jukebox in the readings on Psychic Tapestry's Love Show, heard on Blog Talk Radio every Friday at 5:00pm (Pacific) and in my readings at Myztic Isle on Mondays (12:00pm to 5:00pm)! You can get directions or make an appointment by visiting Myztic Isle's website RIGHT HERE!
