This first song is by the Gorillaz, an animated band. By “animated”, I do not mean they’re lively. I mean they’re, to quote Hee Haw, “jes’ drawed on”.
I maintain this song is about going to the movies. The name of it is Clint Eastwood and just about the only bit of the lyrics I understand is “I got sunshine in a bag.” Now, what could that be but hot buttered movie popcorn? But Daughter #4 says, “Yeah, Mom. They’re talking about popcorn. Uh-huh.” But she says it like, you know, ironically.
The second song is about LOST. You know, the TV show that held me in thrall until it totally crapped out in the final episode. It’s Comfort Eagle by Cake. #4 Daughter says, “Mom, the 60s really hit you hard, didn’t they?” I’m not sure if she means the 1960s or my 60s. Go here and watch the video and YOU tell ME: Is this about LOST or isn’t it?
Today is World on the Square. If you’re in the Corydon area, come on over. It’s 4-8pm. We’re hoping it doesn’t rain. If it does, it’ll be World At The High School.
WRITING PROMPT: An adult misunderstands what a song is about. (My husband thought the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were the Teenage Mute and Injured Turtles, and was appalled.)
