Any Girl Who Isn’t Me Tonight

Cindy’s most recent post over at Fuzzy Red Robe got me to thinking about my penchant for misunderstanding and misinterpreting the written word all the time.

For instance, from the first time I heard it all the way through I thought Aimee Mann was singing about Maria instead of Mario in Pavlov’s Bell. And really, it makes a lot more sense if you think it’s about a lesbian relationship. I mean, they “can’t talk about it” and they’re “trading clothes” and she’s “all about denial.”

I sang “Maria” instead of “Mario” for a long time, until I happened to look up the lyrics one day. And I was kind of disappointed. It’s a much better song my way. Take note, Miss Mann!
