Sometimes the only way to get rid of something in your head is to give it away. Enjoy. Or not.
The one thing we needed to learn from 2016 is how fast everything can end. Take control. Don’t let the moment pass.
It’s about snow.
Seriously though, this is from one of the Christmas albums I grew up with. On an actual LP. Played on a portable stereo in my room.
Dance with it girl
On the surface, this is a sweet song about a girl who doesn’t have a bunch of money, but she still dresses like it’s date night to dance with her honey to songs on the radio.
But I seriously misheard the lyrics. And it makes sense this way….
Dat’s a dead girl
She was killed in a night club shooting (“Badda bang bang”), but her ghost keeps showing up at the night club to dance (“I can see your energy”). She doesn’t need money because ghosts don’t pay cover charges or buy drinks. The guy who was with her that night still shows up at the club sometimes because he misses her so (“worth more than diamonds, more than gold”).
Happy Halloween (and Nevada Day).
