Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “Cherish”

The Association – Madonna

Cherish is the word I use to describe
All the feeling that I have hiding here for you inside
You don’t know how many times
I’ve wished that I had told you
You don’t know how many times
I’ve wished that I could hold you
You don’t know how many times
I’ve wished that I could mold you into someone who could
Cherish me as much as I cherish you

Lovely chimes, lovely harmony…wait, “mold you”? Wow, this song took a turn for the stalkerish!

Oh, I could say I need you
But then you’d realize
That I want you
Just like a thousand other guys
Who’d say they loved you
Like all the rest of their lies
When all they wanted
Was to touch your face your hands
And gaze into your eyes

Yuck, I need a shower.

This is the happier, poppier Madonna of songs like “Holiday” – the Madonna I appreciate more than the quasi-serious title track of the album this song was on, Like a Prayer.
