About a year ago, as I was cycling through my ever-changing musical tastes, I was coming off a period where I was listening to a lot of whiskey blues music. As I was looking for a transition, I came across this song and was immediately hooked.

"Tearing Me Up" by Bob Moses immediately captured me with the combinations of electronic music mixed with a bluesy feel provided by the piano tones. I love the sound of the song. However, it was the lyrics that hit me with deep nostalgic feelings.

After Saudi Arabia, I spent that time enjoying being a bachelor. I dated quite a bit, even having a few great yet short-term girlfriends. But there was this one girl I couldn't resist even though I knew she was my devil, offering me the apple...

I don't know what you want from me

So careless in my company

Oh, if all that you say is true

There'll be no getting over you

So beat down playing by your rules

If you're a joker, then I'm a fool

I guess there's no catching up to you

If you don't want my affection

Don't lie, you're tearing me up

'Cause you've got, all my attention

I won't lie, you're tearing me up

I'm trying to tell your intention

When you lie, you're tearing me up

If you don't want my affection

You won't mind, you're tearing me up

If you lived the bachelor/bachelorette life and want to take a trip down memory lane where you were the joker's fool, check out the official video. It might even get the "heart racin'".
