JFKlistens: AGAINST ME!
song: THE OCEAN
album: NEW WAVE
I ran to this album this morning, for the record, I can only run to perfect albums so this obviously qualifies as such. This isn’t the best song on the album, but what struck me are the lyrics in verse 2 in regards to Tom Gabel choice to become a woman. (article here) Everyone was shocked at this announcement but if we had been listening, we see he told us 5 years ago.
And if I could have chosen, I would have been born a woman
My mother once told me she would have named me Laura
I’d grow up to be strong and beautiful like her
