Song of the Day
As teens across Ireland continue to plough through the Junior and Leaving Certificate examinations today marked the rare sighting of a blue sky and - gasp! - SUNSHINE, further confirming that summer is finally here at long last. Something tells me this momentous occasion calls for a suitably summery track to kick off A Girl Insane's Song of the Day series. Yeah, because nothing says "summer" like a bunch of Marie Antoinette-esque aristocrats hanging out in So Cal whilst singing a little ditty about war. That's right, this seemingly happy tune is actually about war. Amazing how up-tempo melodies can hide the fact that some songs can have decidely grim lyrics, eh? Now go hit the books and do some studying, kids!
