WAYYYYY back in 1992, Justin Timberlake appeared on Star Search, showing off the twang, dance moves, cowboy hat, and love of country music.
What song did he sing? Alan Jackson‘s “Love’s Got a Hold on You” from his Don’t Rock the Jukebox album. FUCK, DO I RESPECT IT.
This kid would wipe the floor with some of the shit you hear on mainstream radio these days.
Enjoy the throwback.
“Love’s Got a Hold on You” lyrics…
I called my doctor on the telephone “Help me doctor, there’s something wrong I can’t shake it, it’s gone too far” He said, “Tell me what your symptoms are”
I said “My hands are sweaty and my knees are weak I can’t eat and I can’t sleep It’s turning me every way but loose” He said, “It sounds like love’s got a hold on you No doubt, love’s got a hold on you”
I told my buddies I was settling down No more of this running ’round They looked at me like I was a fool And said “Come on tell us what’s wrong with you”
Well I tossed and turned ’til the morning light Holding my pillow hanging on for life There ain’t nothing I can do They said, “It sounds like love’s got a hold on you Sounds like love’s got a hold on you”
