5 On Friday - Behind Closed Doors
Every Friday our buddy at Trav's Thoughts lets us go off in all our many directions on five songs with simple instructions. Every once in a while we get a theme. This week it is spinning off of Gordon Lightfoot's "Sundown". Last week I jumped the gun and put up a version of Sundown that seemed to extend from the lyrics with songs about prostitution. Then I went and read "Song Facts" about the meaning. Consensus seems to be that it was about the about to be ex wife, the "good friend" whose nickname was Sundown and Gordon's drinking (feeling no pain) and anger management problems at the time. So this time the progression is about cheating.
