A while ago, I saw this clip of Hayden Panettiere on Ellen where they played this game of trying to guess if a title was a real song or not.
Like Panettiere, I imaged a song entitled “Billy Broke My Heart at Walgreens and I Cried All the Way to Sears” was made up. But it is a real song by Ruby Wright. And here it is:
What’s more, I rather enjoy this song. I think it’s quite pleasant to listen to; it tells a great story. I mean, it’s a sad story of Billy breaking up with the narrator and breaking her heart, but it’s exquisitely told, there is a lot excellent detail provided. Plus the effect they have on her voice in the beginning is kind of interesting.
Whether the song makes you smirk or smile because of the title, or whether you relate to it and it helps you get over a break up, I think it’s worth listening to. Although, I’m having a hella of a time trying to find it on iTunes…Apparently she has another hit entitled “Bimbo,”…I am not making that up.
So, there’s that.
