Subject: her name’s laurie anderson
I think the singer you’re thinking of is Laurie Anderson and the lyric is (I’m such a pedant, but I love Laurie Anderson) the sun came up like a big bald head.
I understand why you thought it was big boiled egg, and perhaps this could be better lyric if the moment was right.
For interest, the song is called Sharkey’s Day from the album Mister Heartbreak. The line continues:
The Sun came up like a big bald head, poking over the grocery store.
The other lyric I like of hers is:
All of nature talks to me. If I could only figure out what it was trying to tell me.
I feel like this a lot. The world is constantly trying to give me information but I have no idea how to decipher it.
Like your last e-mail.
I guess the world (and you) is trying to tell me something, but as always I can’t work it out.
Are you saying you would contemplate meeting me for a hot beverage or are you blowing me off?
(Which if you are, is cool)
