Perverse, obtuse etc…..no, not about me. Really.
I’d been thinking about this all week, The Tragically Hip and Silver Jet – are the lyrics the weirdest thing I’ve ever heard, and was this the result of someone making a bet that you can’t get ‘Gregory Peck’ and half a dozen other oddities into a song? As mentioned in this timeless section :
It’s quiet again, when a car like Big Ben;
The radio dopplering, for all you Gregory Peck fans;
Let Us Now Praise Famous Men;
To take some pressure off the wonderous to fight and
And I still love it.
I’ve been using it as an antidote to the hold-music Telstra inflicts on people stupid enough (i.e. me) to order their services then fight through the phone system to get to someone to correct the myriad mistakes in actually fulfilling an order. I’m amazed how they treat me before I even have to pay them for anything.
The Prince lyrics thread nudged me over the line.
