I Just Wanna Be Mad, by Terri Clark
We can’t always be calm, cool and collected, sometimes we need to be mad for a while. As the lyrics to this fun song by Terri Clark imply, in order to get passed our feelings, we need to go through them.
With life tossing us unexpected changes, and many of us not too keen on changes, Terri Clark sings it best when she sings, ‘I think I’m right I think your wrong, I’ll probably give in before long’ knowing ultimately compromise will become the order of the day.
Whether You’ve Been Married to Your Job or a Person for 7 Years…Things Happen and Yes, ‘You’re Going to Want to be Mad for a While’
There’s only so much we can do when things aren’t working out the way we believe they’re suppose to and deciding how to get through a situation doesn’t mean we aren’t permitted to address our anger…so yes, go ahead and be mad for a while!
As the Country Music Contributor for a company that’s unfortunately ‘no-more’, it’s safe to say that the lyrics to this bouncy country song have special meaning. As Terri Clark says to her significant other in the lyrics…‘We’ve been married 7 years now, some days it feels like 21’. As a writer married to that former writing platform for 7 years the story told in this angry country song fits perfectly – just replace the guy with the job! So whether you need to be mad at a person or a situation, you can bet someone’s written a song that works!
Country Music has the power to take our innermost emotions and transfer them into song. It rarely lets us down. Any emotion you can think of, there’s certainly a country song for that. So if you need to be mad for a while, this could certainly be your theme song of the day. The lyrics give you permission.
Terri Clark’s Song is the Perfect Choice to Honor a Lovers Spat! – Honor? Crazy way to put it!
If you’ve listened to the song above already, you know this tune is about a couple who’ve been together for seven years and who happen to be angry with each other.
Actually, with the lyrics being sung by Terri Clark, a female, it’s a better choice for a woman who’s upset with her significant other. But not to worry guys, you can use this one for a dedication if you really need it…it still applies. Anger is Anger.
In the lyrics, she’s been up since 5am thinking about ‘me and you’…and she’ll probably get over it and ultimately give-in, however she needs him to forget about trying to woo her back…no running his fingers through her hair, no goodbye kiss either…just get out of the way for right now, ’cause she’s not in the mood for smiling! She’s on the war-path and I’m afraid any attempt to to win her back will fail until she’s had time to process what happened!
Relationships are complicated and as per the principle of Occam’s Razor, the simplest solution is usually the best, and in this case that would be to get out of this tornadoes way…she just needs to be mad for a while!
