My Music Monday song this week is "I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself" by Dusty Springfield. This song was written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, and it was a hit in 1964. I think it may be one of the best breakup songs ever, with lyrics including:
"I just don't know what to do with my time
I'm so lonesome for you it's a crime
Going to a movie only makes me sad
Parties make me feel as bad
When I'm not with you
I just don't know what to do"
I heard this song on XM Radio yesterday (60's on 6) and it has been stuck in my head ever since. In this case, with such a great song, this is not a bad thing ... so I'm passing it along to you.
