Glyph is worse than some and better than others. He believes that life is just one damned thing after another, that only pop music can save us now, and that mercy is the mark of a great man (but he's just all right). Nothing he writes here should be taken as an indication that he knows anything about anything.

      Talk about a song title as a complete short story.

      Also the line “And fourteen, and you know…”

      Yes. Yes, I do.

      It sounds like they took the drum pattern there from Yeah Yeah Yeah’s “Maps”. Which wouldn’t surprise me:

      I’ve been singing “And She Would Darken The Memory” for DAYS.

      Rhyming “puttin'” with “the boot in” is just so satisfying. “And friendly faces, with put-on smiles”.Report
