I hit the caption button while watching the country music awards last night, because I wanted to understand the lyrics. One song talked about having a
fwd truck and swerving all over the dirt roads like george someone, with 'smoke coming from the windows and a beer on the console', and I can out
drive you type messages. When Taylor Swift sang, I thought she wore too much makeup, and it sounded like she'd been beaten, but I wrote that off as
part of her act.
For the song about smoke and beers, I thought of KISS, with the lyric 'first I drink, then I smoke'.
I dunno. There are all sorts of threads here. I glanced off one that had everyone saying goodbye, this is the end. I have seen them pull the cord to
the big aids™ machine again this Spring, despite the thermonuclear disaster affecting the world for oh thousands of years....and I have seen the
'head for the hills' threads as well as the 'don't head for THESE hills' threads. I didn't catch the 'let's loot' threads.
I just thought I'd relate my experience to reading in to some C&W lyrics. The song about dirt roads was interesting, I thought, and it looks like a
lot of rockers are hanging around the guitar store, tongue in cheek, with country hats on, playing country licks, and thinking about beating their
girlfriends. Or just trying out another one.
First I drink, then I smoke...
