Kudos to 6Music for playing my favourite Midlake song Roscoe on my drive in to work this am.
Very melodic but strange strange lyrics that I can’t easily make sense off.
The line that almost acts as a chorus in a song without a chorus is ‘Whenever I was a child I wondered
what if my name had changed into something more productive like Roscoe’.
Makes little sense to me either stand alone or in the context of the rest of the song.
We know songs like I am the Walrus are difficult to make sense of but this is a seemingly serious song
which I assume is supposed to refer to something.
Any other examples out there that you would like to post?
