Tragic Young Girls
I remember the first time I heard Teen Angel as a kid, on the radio. It was so ridiculously over-the-top that I burst out laughing, certain that everyone was in on the joke– then turned to see my little sister, tears streaming down her face, glaring at me as if I were some kind of monster.
Which brings me to Girlfriend in a Coma by The Smiths. Is it a parody of a sad song, a legitimately sad song, or a hybrid of the two?
I have my own opinion, which experience has taught me to keep to myself.
