it's raining in the city

Headlights - Put Us Back Together Right


Here's a number from the Illinois group, Headlights. It's from their debut, "Kill Them With Kindness," yet it's impressed me leaps and bounds more than other tracks from that LP. More than ingenuity and innovation and novelty, Put Us Back Together Right has me pondering puddles on city streets at night. It might be a non sequitur, but there's the image. A puddle and a chattering of voices, as invariably the city is a social place for a suburb-stricken soul like myself. "So we can leave them on their feet for the night, take us apart and put us back together right" bespeaks the emotional games we play with each others' heartstrings, on such occasions. [learn]
