I don't think I'd ever fall for a straight guy, but everytime I listen to one of the two Yo La Tengo CD's I have, I am so impressed by the guy's sweet, vulnerable singing, that I realize that it's possible. Of course, to keep the fantasy going, to allow me to have these thoughts each time I listen to their music, I have to make sure never to look for specific pictures, or even to find out the band member's name who whispers Tears Are In Your Eyes and Don't Have To Be So Sad. But some of the music is so intimate, so beautiful, that I can imagine this guy waking up beside me in bed, in the early morning hours before the sun comes up, seeing me awake, worried, insecure, and whispering sweet little reassurances.
