Remember the Seinfeld episode "these pretzels are making me thirsty"? Well, in a likewise manner, how do you speak aloud the holy and beloved title AYGWM? Is it "ARE you going with ME?" Or "Are YOU going WITH me"? Or could it be "ARE you GOING with me"? (a la DeNiro in his mirror) Or the inevitable (for the hard-of-hearing) "ARE YOU GOING WITH ME"?!? Just wondering. I can’t decide which is best....

Bookmark and Share Do you think Are You Going With Me? is slightly ambivalent? Would it be different if it was Are You Coming With Me? I guess that sounds a bit bossy... ’Going’ is better, as in ’let’s please end up in the same place but you don’t have to travel in my car or anything’.

Bookmark and Share fair enough, Fred (thanks’ for the youtube link). It seems however that other people use this and add the ARE to it. There is a recent movie The Fraternity that does that.

Bookmark and Share Brings to mind ’ As falls Wichita, so falls Wichita Falls ’. Where does the emphasis fall ? Downstream, upstream or right at the falls ? Methenology is so theoretical. ...

Bookmark and Share Not to get too picky, but the De Niro line is "You talkin’ to ME?" emphasis on "me." Because he then looks around and says "Well I’m the only one here." Watch it here:

Bookmark and Share "...his has to be one of the more irrelevant questions in Methenology" - You got that right, patsfan. It was just a question I’ve long pondered...meant to be amusing. ;) / As for Anna Marie, she could pronounce it any way she wants; I’d listen.... Thanks for your answers, folks!

Bookmark and Share Naut, sorry if I insulted you, and after thinking about the words alone and their implied emphasis and importance, I think it’s all about the psychological impact of the words themselves ... Nothing to do with the music at all. So, in cold hard humanistic terms, it’s all about human personality ..... The narcissist would emphasize the ME, the normal person would emphasize the YOU. Check that out with your psychologist ... If you have one

Bookmark and Share Naut, this has to be one of the more irrelevant questions in Methenology.. But , to answer your question, and as Anna Marie Jopek pronounced the phrase, it was ’ Eeeeee. Owwww oooooe. Weeee ahhhhh ’. ::))

Bookmark and Share "YOU ARE GOING WITH ME" At least once Pat hits the stomp box half-way through his solo during the encore!

Bookmark and Share naut-Interesting question! I usually say it like a song title-unimaginative I know..........

Bookmark and Share since you asked....... as I read the examples you gave, they all seem somehow "in your face" and "demanding" I think the intent of the name of the song was meant to be much softer than that: are you going with me?
