Meiko – Boys With Girlfriends

In songs on October 12, 2011 at 1:32 pm

I’ve mentioned before how cheesy pop songs needn’t be stupid. Meiko is another good practitioner of this philosophy, even when writing a love song such as this one.

The narrator is wise to her foolishness, beating herself about the head even as she allows herself to get involved in a situation which can end nothing but badly. It’s a feeling easy to identify with, but hard to write about skillfully.

A small footnote: The album containing this tune was released on MySpace Records. Curious to see how much longer that entity will exist, and what might happen to its recorded properties…
