Just for a lark, I went searching for songs with my name, Polly, in them. I'm not talking about children's songs like "Polly Put The Kettle On" or "Polly Wolly Doodle" either, but my name in popular / rock music lyrics. The couple I did find had pretty horrible topics! Observe.Pretty Polly
by The Byrds
(Pretty Polly, pretty Polly, you guessed it just right
I dug all your grave the better part of last night"
Then he stabbed her in her heart till her heart's blood did flow
He stabbed her in her heart till her heart's blood did flow
Down into the grave pretty Polly did go...
(I've got some rope... have been told
Promise you... have been true
Let me take a ride... don't hurt yourself
Want some help...please myself...
Hmm... so let's see... murdered in one, tortured and raped in the other. LOL!! Wow. I think the former is an old folk song, covered by many artists over the years. I've heard the Byrds version which is why I exampled that one here. The latter was based on a true news story about a 14 year old girl in Tacoma Washington who was kidnapped and subsequently raped and tortured by her abductor. She escapes by flirting with him, and he is then convinced to let her go.
I'm always on the lookout for more upbeat, happier songs with my namesake. I don't have the most common of names however, and lyrically, maybe others sound alot better. This has put me in quite a morose mood. Haha!
made me this. My name in the sand. Quite lovely. :)
Annnnd... a couple of new icons. Using one of them here.
