I'm finally beginning to really appreciate just how amazing this record is.

One of those records that, for some surprising reason, I'm always kind of quietly really bowled over by when I put it on, and then forget about for ages. A lot of it is nostalgia clouding my judgement probably, but whatever, she's a very underrated songwriter.

"Chapter one. "
"He adored New York City.
He idolised it all out of proportion. "

Uh, no. Make that "He romanticised it
all out of proportion. "

"To him,
no matter what the season was,
this was still a town
that existed in black and white
and pulsated to the great tunes
of George Gershwin. "

Uh... no. Let me start this over.
"Chapter one. "
"He was too romantic about Manhattan,
as he was about everything else. "
"He thrived on the hustle, bustle
of the crowds and the traffic. "
"To him, New York
meant beautiful women
and street-smart guys
who seemed to know all the angles. "

Ah, corny. Too corny
for a man of my taste.
Let me... try and make it more profound.
"Chapter one. He adored New York City. "
"To him, it was a metaphor
for the decay of contemporary culture. "
"The same lack of integrity to cause so
many people to take the easy way out...
... was rapidly turning the town
of his dreams..."

No, it's gonna be too preachy. I mean,
face it, I wanna sell some books here.
"Chapter one. He adored New York City,
although to him it was a metaphor
for the decay of contemporary culture. "
"How hard it was to exist in a society
desensitised by drugs, loud music,
television, crime, garbage..."

Too angry. I don't wanna be angry.
"Chapter one. "
"He was as tough and romantic
as the city he loved. "
"Behind his black-rimmed glasses was
the coiled sexual power of a jungle cat. "

I love this.

"New York was his town
and it always would be. "

When this catches me in the right move it can hold me like nothing else in my record collection pretty much.
