Have you ever come across a song that you hate for only a few lyrics? Recently I have come across such a song. The song is called “The Heavy Abacus” by the Joy Formidable. I should admit I only know the actual name of the song or the artistic because I ran a quick google search for the purposes of this post. In my house this song is called “Bending Feet”
Here is a little background- I HATE FEET! I don’t understand how anyone can really see anything positive about this particular part of the body. Most of the day feet are spent sweating away in a pair of socks, crammed into some shoe with little to no room to breathe. For a female, feet are forced to contort in all types of uncomfortable positions just to rest in a shoe that makes them look “sexy” or “professional”.
The result of this cruel and unusual punishment to the female foot? Hangnails, blisters, calluses and all sorts of other unsightly foot blemishes.
Don’t even get me started on toenails! If they are allowed to grow to anything more than a slight covering of your toe these things can be deadly weapons. People should need a license to carry them! If you are trying to “bend feet” with a signifigant other and your nail has grown just a tad too long prepare to elicit a girlish yelp. You may even draw blood! An attractive body part would not have this ability!
The first line of the song is ” Here we are bending feet, in the dark before dreamless sleep” this is the ONLY line I know. Throughout the rest of the song these lyrics play on repeat in my head. All I can think is what a nightmare this scenario would be. Someone trying to be cute and cuddle you close and chooses to mesh his dirty foot up against yours. While rubbing back in forth in a play full manner he stabs you with his yellowing big toe and blood starts pouring out. Now you are in debate- do you go get a tetanus shot or play it cool and slap on a barbie band aid?
Songs should not cause this kind of fearful thinking! This song needs to get out of my head and make room for happier thoughts!!
So bloggers do you have any songs that make you crazy?
