New songs and blue songs #15

The 30 day song challenge.

Day 15 - a song that describes you - Devine comedy - Gin soaked boy.

Ok, I was going to go with The Smiths - Handsome devil, but I opted for self-deprecation instead. I love the lyrics to this song, very clever indeed. You don't hear enough of this group in my opinion. I'm not sure whether the song is a reference to Tom Waits song of the same name or not, I couldn’t find any information on what the song is about. This is a good thing I think, the truth would only spoil the illusion.

Here’s the Tom Waits version in case you were curious.

I’m the will you’ll not destroy, I’m the gin in the gin soaked boy
