Don't You Want Me Baby?

Once in a while, you hear a jingle, a song, which strikes a chord with your heart.

That was the case recently (day before yesterday to be precise) with me.

While watching the movie Cyrus, a simple small talk during a "first meeting" between the lead pair - John C. Reilly and Marisa Tomei - turns into a impromptu dance when the lead actor hears a song playing on the radio.

The song in question is - Don't You Want Me Baby?

This song was sung way back in 1981 by the British group - The Human League.

This song has the distinction of being the best song for the music group. It is well known among music aficionados. And needless to say, it was a huge commercial success.

Starring the attractive Marisa Tomei - this song doesn't fail to lift your spirits.


Catch some part of the music video from the movie right below.

And catch the entire lyrics of the song right below


You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
When I met you

I picked you out, I shook you up, and turned you around
Turned you into someone new

Now five years later on you've got the world at your feet
Success has been so easy for you

But don't forget its me who put you where you are now
And I can put you back down too

Don't, don't you want me?
You know I cant believe it when I hear that you wont see me

Don't, don't you want me?
You know I don't believe you when you say that you don't need me

Its much too late to find
You think you've changed your mind
You'd better change it back or we will both be sorry

Don't you want me baby? don't you want me - oh
Don't you want me baby? don't you want me - oh

I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
That much is true

But even then I knew I'd find a much better place
Either with or without you

The five years we have had have been such good times
I still love you

But now I think its time I lived my life on my own
I guess it's just what I must do

Don't you want me baby? don't you want me - oh
Don't you want me baby? don't you want me - oh [repeat 4 times]
