I was listening to the Pacifica Station here in Houston yesterday. I normally don’t. But as I was changing from FM1 down to AM, I had to punch through FM2 where 90.1 KPFT was playing. The DJ caught my attention by saying the next song was brand new. So I paused for just a second to hear what it would be.
It’s by Regina Spektor (who I’ve never heard of) and was released about a month ago. The lyrics made my ears perk up immediately so I listened to hear what this song was about.
I think she’s making fun of those who don’t believe in God (perhaps a UU or two?) but when shit hits the fan… well, as she said, “no one laughs…” And I think she’s poking fun at those who believe God grants wishes like a genie.
I’m curious about your thoughts.
