Day 21 — The Name Game

For today’s 30-Day Song Challenge we are asked for “a song you like with a person’s name in the title.”

There are so many songs that meet that criteria, but there’s one with, shall we say, a twist. Many who hear it assume it to be a sweet love song about a girl named Rosie. But if you listen carefully to the words, you’ll realize that it’s a song about something else entirely.

So here is Jackson Browne’s song, “Rosie.” Listen carefully to the lyrics…if you dare.

      It’s probably one of Jackson Browne’s lesser known songs. Didn’t get much radio play…for some reason. 🤔

          You are absolutely correct. I blew my response out of hand. 😱

        Oh wait. I forgot about the thumb. Damn. I gotta get a grip on myself.

    Until I read that remark from NewEpic there, I was clueless…I thought it was about some groupie…but well well well. Good song … the tune is vaguely the same as “Stay” isn’t it?
