Out of the Blue

Happy Ides of March! The thing that popped into my head about this today is a one-hit-wonder Vehicle, which hit #2 in 1970, as it was by a band called the Ides of March (I'm very big on 70's pop music). According to Wikipedia, the lyricist says "I got the idea from one of these anti-drug pamphlets they distributed in a school. It was very tongue-in-cheek." But it's hard to view this as anything but a super-creepy autobiography of a child-molester. Is it just me? Here's the first verse:

Hey, well I'm the friendly stranger in the black sedan
Oh won't you hop inside my car?
I got pictures, got candy, I am a lovable man
I'd like to take you to the nearest star
I'm your vehicle baby, I'll take you anywhere you wanna go
I'm your vehicle woman, By now I'm sure you know
That I love ya (love you)
Need ya (need you)
I want to, got to have you child
Great God in heaven, you know I love you

I know, right? Beware the Ides of March indeed!
