This is a strange, little song written by Kevin Conner in the early '80s. The sparsely orchestrated arrangement is propelled forward by Kevin's finger picking while a subdued church organ plays somber chords. The Hanson Sisters' pitch-perfect harmony cements it all together providing a dark musical canvas to showcase Kevin's rich, albeit melancholy, baritone vocal.
Just what is this enigmatic song about? You be the judge.
