Dance Music.

Spent three almost three days writing about the city of San Luis Obispo.Couldn't get this song out of my head.

Dance Music from Sunset Tree, by The Mountain Goats,

All right.
I'm on Johnson Avenue
in San Luis Obispo.
I'm five years old or six
maybe.

And indications that there's
something wrong with our new house
trip down the wire twice daily.

I'm in the living room watching
the Watergate hearings while
my stepfather yells at my mother.
He throws a glass
straight at her head
and I dash upstairs to take cover...
Listen close to the little record player on the floor
So this is what  the volume knobs for.

I listen to Dance Music. Dance Music...
