The other day when everyone was sure we were going to have the snow storm to end all snow storms, I had the oldies station on because they’re better at giving updates on weather and local crap, and I noticed something. Have you ever noticed how, in songs, when they talk about girls, I can’t say always, but a lot of the time, it’s in child-like terms? Little girl? Child? Baby? And the guy is her…daddy? And when you think about that, don’t you find that a wee bit disturbing? Do we all have some kind of latent pedophilia going on?
I remember being confused by that as a kid. I remember thinking briefly, why is that man talking to his baby like that? Babies are those things that go waa waa and are in strollers right? And then it happened so much that I guess I figured out that it wasn’t an actual baby he was talking about. But now that I’m grown up, I feel like I’ve gone full circle, because I still think it’s weird. Does anyone else think so? Or have I lost my marbles?
