Don Johnson's "Heartbeat" (part 2 of 2)

So here, in its breathtaking totality, is the profound chorus of “Heartbeat”:

Heartbeat
I’m lookin’ for a heartbeat
Heartbeat
I’m lookin’ for a heartbeat
Beatin’ like mine

Well, I’ll just go ahead and get the standard nitpick out of the way, which is that a “heartbeat” is a sound, and thus it’s impossible to “look” for it. I think I first heard that criticism back in 1986, and frankly, there are much stupider things to make fun of here. The word “looking” is pretty much interchangeable with “searching”, so I don’t see a whole lot wrong with this particular section of the song. Minus the wretched singing, of course.
