Listening to my local country station at work the past few days I’ve learned a few things: •90% of the music is sung by guys. •Whiskey often rhymes with kiss me or the second favorite, miss me. •Often times to show they’re not thinking about a woman they write an entire song about how their not thinking of her. •Girl is their favorite word. Just listen to 3 songs I guarantee you’ll hear it at least 4 times. •Drink is almost always followed by think or vice versa (see also; thinkin/drinkin) •Everyone always seems to be looking at their “girl” that they’re singing about. •Jacked up, truck, drink, beer, mud, tires, hometown, and small-town are also hot topics in most songs not involving “girl” Unless the girl is drinking the beer and driving the truck and is from a small-town.
Red and yellow stripes streaming in the wind, holding hands with strangers and dancing in the street, feet on shoulders holding up one another, the success that only hard work can bring, beautiful buildings adorned with flowers, the coast running up to meet the mountain, being independent and flourishing in it, always being mistaken for something else, yet always standing firm in being yourself.
