Subject: question about "Mother Stands for Comfort"
Posted-Date: 13 Dec 85 15:36:57 PST (Fri)
On my nth listening to HoL, the song "Mother Stands For Comfort" again sent chills up my spine. If this is really a love song to Mother, then why does the arrangement give such a . . . haunted/chilling atmosphere to the song? For me, it conjures up an image of a huge house with an overpowering mother figure about to beat up little-girl-Kate in the corner shaking with fear. First time I heard the song (without paying attention to the rest of the lyrics), I thought Kate was being sarcastic, what with the title verse sung repeatedly aginst the background, plus that at one point she goes " . . . make me do this, make me do that . . ." So what do you experienced KBologists think? Do I have an association problem?
