Song: Get Down
Artist: Gilbert O’Sullivan
Favorite lyric: I never listened too closely to the lyrics so I just now figured out that this song is about a dog. Previously I thought “bad dog” was some weird ’70s lingo for a ne’er-do-well.
Significance: Gilbert O’Sullivan is probably most known for the song Alone Again (Naturally), which is a peppy song with lyrics so sad they make you want to throw yourself off the roof. Alone Again and Get Down are two songs that Shaun shared with me long ago because they were used in an anime he watched. I really can’t listen to Alone Again but Get Down is another one of those weird places where our tastes intersect.
