  • Tonight’s song is for Georgia over at Neuewave. I found Georgia’s blog because she made the Tumblr theme for another blog I follow. Oh, the fruits of Tumbl-hopping! At first sight, I immediately liked her blog; it’s full of great images, portrayed in a simplistic style. And then I read about her, and I knew I had to write a song. Her bio says things like, “I have many theories about things but my problem is that I think too much.” Oh, what a wonderful problem to have! (I say this, of course, because I have it, too). And Georgia’s from Glasgow. I spent a few very good months in that city, and every day a part of me wants to go back. In fact, Glasgow is really where I first wrote songs, and I used to play them on Sauchiehall Street for change. So this song is for that city and a cool girl living in it. Thanks for the inspiration, Georgia, and enjoy! — K.C.

         Sauchiehall Street

    Since I moved in with Georgia on Sauchiehall Street,
    my life’s been better, oh, almost complete.
    We have a nice cozy flat to escape the cold,
    and I hope she lets me stay ‘til I am old.
    I make her breakfast in bed, in exchange for a Glaswegian kiss,
    And I’m sad each time it ends,
    and I fall deeper in love.

    Since I moved in with Georgia on Sauchiehall St,
    my life’s been better, oh, almost complete.
    When we’re bored, we ride the clockwork orange
    in circles around the city.
    And at dusk, we go to the Necropolis,
    and I take pictures of her laughing at death.
    Seeing her like this, I feel so alive,
    and I fall deeper in love.

    Since I moved in with Georgia on Sauchiehall Street,
    my life’s been better, oh, almost complete.
    We dance at the Art School
    after Irn-Bru and vodkas
    have cured my two left feet.
    And on Mondays I take her to Nice n’ Sleazy
    and sing this song at the top of my lungs,
    and she acts like she’s too cool to be embarrassed,
    and falls deeper in love.
