Look out, kid, it’s something you did

Zimmerman wasn’t exactly wroth, but he was definitely perplexed. He didn’t mind so much when somebody called “Bobby the Poet” put out a Hardly-Worthit version of “Positively White Christmas” or something like that, and he admitted to a guffaw or two when that Weird Al guy ran backwards and forwards at the same time. In the same song, yet.

But he didn’t quite know what to make of Chastity Rome-Sick Blues. Okay, the girl was way cute, if a tad fumble-fingered, and she looked the part. (Johanna? Forget those visions.) Besides, whoever heard of a music video made to promote a book? He shook his head in amazement and pressed the Watch Again button. “Funny,” he finally said. “And it beats the hell out of watching parking meters.”

    Now, if Dawn’s song had been nothing but palindromes (about chastity, of course) that would have been — what, a four-fer?

    At least I resisted the temptation of the working title of this post, which was “Look out, kid, it’s someone you did.”

    You think he’d object to this?

    At the time, I said it was “better than anything Zimmerman ever did with that tune,” and I’m sticking to that story.
