Song Saturday: Storm of Nails
My Glammer AKA Glam Hammer and an Image of Frida Kahlo
It's ALWAYS something. If I had a penny for every time this statement rang true. Everyone's "storms", "shit", "stuff" comes in different forms and to various degrees but make no mistake it comes .. for EVERYONE. This is one of the reasons music, well good music, holds up a mirror to life and at times in universally applicable. For instance the track "Storm of Nails" written and performed by Singer/Songwriter Lisa Marie Presley. I love this song because it is a witty verbal reflection and clever metaphor to life. What is it now, again if I had a damn penny ....
I wish life came complete with a forecast. I am equipped with an arsenal of "hammers" that I have gathered and earned over the years but it would be nice to know when to expect the nails.
Thanks again Lisa for putting it all out there and lyrically holding up that mirror in your organic, non contrived way.
I'm ready to throw my stylish hammer down at any moment ... got nails? bring 'em on.
