Today’s pampered female flies around in giant jetliners with sky-waitresses bringing her drinks and cigars and jars of diamonds. And what did they do to deserve this fine treatment? Nothing!
In this video we see how ladies of…yore got around. They dressed up in fancy costumes climbed up on the outside of planes (flown by competent men, of course) and danced all the way to wherever it was they were going. Sometimes their clothes fly off (not kidding) and maybe near the end of the video they jump off the planes and parachute onto some old-timey dudes. I don’t know. The video was three whole minutes long. I can’t watch things for that long.
What a nondescript person. And a nondescript song, too. Lucky for me. I should pick nondescript things all the time so I don’t have to describe them.
I guess if I have to say something about the song it would be this: it’s like a frigging lullaby. I only made it halfway through. I mean, I remember it, but sheesh. Am I the only one? Seriously – do you have ANY thoughts about this? The video is after the jump. Don’t screw me over. I am interested in this. It’s like science.
I wonder if when people listen to this song on their oldies station they think that the “Lyrical Jesse James” named in the song is the one who used to make ice cream machines out of golf carts on TLC and cheated on Sandra Bullock with a chick who looked like a crumpled up comic book. When the song came out, everyone thought of the cowboy one. Come to think of it, there were a lot of movies about cowboys in the 90′s, and a lot of movies about baseball, too. What’s that about?
Eh, I don’t know why you let me go on these tangents. I need to stay on point. “It’s gettin’ kinda hectic.” should be a saying that comes up way more often than it does now. I don’t know when the last time I ever heard anyone say it. Or if I ever heard anyone say it if they weren’t actually singing or referring to this song. So I guess what I am trying to say is that we should make this a thing. I can try to say it at least once a day. Maybe more if things are really getting kind of hectic. Incidentally, is “kinda” an actual word or just a phonetic spelling of how everyone but jerks say “kind of”?
Gah, I said no more tangents. Video and lyrics after the jump.
See those people in that pic? They ring a bell? I bet they do, but I am also going to bet that a lot of you can’t name them. But you might remember the story of the plucky girl with the hurt foot who did a vault for the USA in the Olympics. Or you might think that it is the story of an old guy who hobbled and then kidnapped a young girl. Regardless, “Your Woman” by White Town is a song that is sort of like that.
I have no idea what it is about, and I could not tell you any of the words. But I know the song. It’s like someone played it to me when I was sleeping. Every night. For a year. Even after I read some of the lyrics I didn’t understand it. The guy is saying: “I could never be your woman.” No kidding, dude. You are a dude! Why don’t you just write a song about “there is something that you can cut in half and its cross-section would be a cube“. Makes just as much sense.
If you people tell me you don’t remember it I will call you a no good liar. And we will fight. Video and lyrics after the jump.
“You had me at meat tornado.”
