And this connects to The Smiths.
Let me explain. My father finally bit the bullet and purchased a new vehicle, or as he calls it, "velocipede". Yes, he really does say that. Anyway, a new silver Toyota Tacoma is now his. I drove it yesterday, and a fine vehicle it is. But the best part: I convinced him to get satellite radio installed. The first six months are free, then of course we pay for it. I don't care if I have to re-mortgage my home, they will pry this radio FROM MY COLD, DEAD HANDS.
BEST. INVENTION. EVER.
I have a selection of anything and everything. JEEZ, the Grateful Dead even has their own station!! But I heard a song yesterday I've not heard in too long. The physics connection? Well, I used to think that the lyrics talked about the "sun" and the "air", until I later understood that Morrissey was saying the "son and the heir".....of a shyness that is criminally vulgar. THEN I started REALLY getting The Smiths and listening to them more and understanding that they are, in their own way, quite groundbreaking and brilliant. And this song is still echoing in my head this morning. By the way, I happened upon the song on a channel called "First Wave", and lemme tell ya, there is some GREAT music on that station.
So there ya go, a connection between The Smiths, physics, and misunderstood lyrics all rolled into one post. If you see a silver Toyota Tacoma flying down the road with a chick behind the wheel banging her head and shouting lyrics at the top of her voice, well, it's very likely me. Because daddy-o may never get his "velocipede" back again.....
Talk about your sound waves!
