Interpretations:It Could Be Worse

From This Might Be A Wiki


Sarah Vowell's children's song: "...Though, ever since I went to Salem, I'm keen on Gallows Hill. As in, being stuck in the Boise aiport for 10 hours while getting hit on by a divorced man with major financial problems on his way to his 20th high school reunion is irksome, but not as dire as swinging by the neck on Salem's Gallows Hill. So if i have gleaned anything useful from reading and day-tripping through the tribulations of the long-dead, it's to count my blessings to try and quit bellyaching, buck-up. Can't you just hear the children's song?" A song about putting things in perspective. BigJohn
