"Got a job working for her aunt, graveyard shift down at the curing plant..."
How do you feel about story songs?
"Summer of 1978, my sister and I in the back seat, just wait. We spent the time by drawing lines on the seat that we can't cross...a thin line like dental floss..."
I used to skip them, move on, didn't want to make the commitment. Something about them made me a little bit uncomfortable, made me roll my eyes and say "oh, please."
And now? Now I kind of love them...
"Bought a few more pickled wieners and a diet chocolate soda, gonna see the Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota..."
It's like a musical short story, back story and foreshadowing and good characters...
"Sara spelled without an 'H' was getting bored on a Peavy amp in 1984, while Zak without a 'C' tried out some new guitars, playing Sara with no 'H's favorite songs..."
What's your favorite story song? Is it because of the music or the story? Maybe it's time for a story song play list...
