Thing a Week 9 – The Town Crotch
Last week was so computery, I wanted a little palette cleanser this week, so you’re getting a nice simple all-acoustic number. This song is based on a memory I wish I had – none of this actually happened, but it is cobbled together from the many tiny bits of kindness and desperation and longing that come with growing up in a small town. I was always into older women in high school, and there was a time when they all seemed so tall and big and wonderful – especially the dangerous ones. The ones who were “built for speed” and who maybe had a certain reputation, but really they were just fun to hang around with. And if you were a skinny freshman in a social situation that was way over your head, they would take care of you, and drive you home in their dark, fast, dangerous cars.
I give you: The Town Crotch
And not to ruin a nice moment with something crass, but if you enjoy Thing a Week, you should feel free to donate whatever you think it’s worth so far to me through Amazon or Paypal. I will not object.
