Some recent examples:
1. My friends (ChickFlickChic and All My Reasons) and I just talked about this over a dinner at Olive Garden. All three of us are in happy relationships...but don't you think if this heartbreaking song came out during a heartbreaking time it would be even more legit? Is that the right word choice? Yes, I am going to go with legit.
2. Today on the radio I heard this song for the second time. (Maybe it's been out forever, who knows!) I found myself awkwardly swaying to the music in the car and digging the beat. It kind of makes me feel like I want to go out dancing to a swanky place like the Atlantic in Gainesville and sway around with all the indie people. But you know what? When I got home today and googled the lyrics (because I had NO idea what they were saying) it was by far the worst lyrics ever! Morbid and totally, outrageously, and in no way related to my life.
4. And then, finally, there are the songs that have nothing to do with your life but you dance along and enjoy them even though you can't relate to it directly. (Although, sometimes in those dolling up moments for a big (and rare) night out you really do feel like a dancing diva). Because really, who would want to be the girl in those lyrics in real life?
