Earlier this week I was driving home from a fitness class I take and listening to ‘Born & Raised.’ I have become a sucker for ‘Walt Grace’ (my favorite on the album) and tend to listen to it 2 or 3 times in a row each go through of the album. For some reason this time I was listening to the words a lot more closely than I usually do and just thinking about what John says. I really just wanted to understand the song a little better since I love it so much. While listening I thought wouldn’t it be fun to post a song on JMMA and see how others interpret it, what the song means to you, or even what is your favorite line in the song. When I got home I viewed the JMMA wall on Facebook and saw that someone posted about misheard lyrics and knew this was something that would be fun and had to be done.
In connection with this post the first song we will discuss is ‘Walt Grace’s Submarine Test 1967.’ What is your favorite line? What does the song mean to you? What do you get out of the song?
I will post my answers on JMMA Facebook so head over there for some great conversation!
