Subject: RE: Ticky-tacky
Thanks for that link ClaireBear (It worked fine when I followed it)
I still tend to the view that it is an elitist and unfairly judgemental song but perhaps understand her POV better from actually seeing the environment she was referring to.The cold grey uniformity that is barely camouflaged by the garish colours.
It's too bad her lyric could be (and is) construed as blaming the victims though.
