Remember this Golden Oldie? I'd rather see you dead little girl than to be with another man. A good example of how the acceptance of violence permeates our culture and is even viewed as romantic. Thanks to music journalist Steve Webb for pointing out this is inspired by Baby Let's Play House, Elvis Presley. He writes, John, I think, regretted writing Run for Your Life for the final 65 years of his own life.
The person who submitted this title wrote: refers to how a women deserves what they get because of the way she dressed. The song even claims she wants what's on his mind..he can't understand how wrong he is, and that is really the genius of the song.
Thanks to Rodney for suggesting this one. He writes: This is a brilliant song which explores the feelings of an abused woman who fantisizes about shooting her abusive lover-- although she does not, which only makes the song more realistic and poignant.
Most of Gottlieb’s stories are not nearly so tragic. Take his last run-in with Louis Armstrong, at their dentist office’s waiting room. “After small talk,” he wrote , “Satchmo looked me over, deciding I, too, had been gaining weight. He reached into his jacket pocket, pulled out a printed diet (that he kept for friends-in-need), and handed me a copy. ‘Pops,’ he said, ‘try this.’ I quickly noted that it featured Pluto Water [a laxative]. But I thanked him, anyway.”
The author Patty Kakac writes: When singing for a crisis shelter, it struck me that things were turned around. The women were under lock and key. I have a friend who is an astronomer. After a on campus where he works, more lights were installed which made it difficult to see the stars through the telescope. He struggles with light pollution while supporting the women and safety measures. The much deeper problem of violence against women is what needs illumination!
Tim writes: This song, by this band, helps to send the message that being violent towards a woman doesn't make you a man. This is an important message sent by men (an all guy group) to other men to challenge men's concepts of aggressive masculinity.

The story of a woman in prison for shooting her abusive husband, a Viet Nam Veteran. http:/// (Folk/Acoustic)
The song is from the point of view of a (male) friend of an abused woman who has left and is trying to put the past behind her and begin anew. She'll find strength in her anger and the truth in his lies / When the last scar finally fades she'll have a new life
This song was inspired by an incident several years back. Governor Celeste of Ohio pardoned several women who were imprisoned for killing abusive husbands, on the grounds that they suffered from Battered Wife Syndrome when they committed their crimes. The ending of the song in purposely confusing. Sally writes, I love the debate that incurs..Did she kill him. Did she shoot the gun? Did he shoot her, and she died and flew away? I won't answer that, I'll let the mystery be!
