TUNE Piney Gir - Stay Sweet
The year is 1967, The Beatles' Strawberry Fields is your class song; you have your first high school yearbook in your small, hot hands. It's tough being a freshman, bottom of the totem pole, but you made it and you have your book to show for it. Stiff Technicolor smiles are frozen in time. The fact you were a mathlete for a semester is preserved with photographic evidence, you can't erase it now it's in the yearbook. And here comes the tricky part… asking that guy in your home-room to sign it. Blank back pages stare up at him while you wonder what is he going to write? He takes pen to paper, you watch as the ink spells out "Stay Sweet, have a cool summer." I wonder if he said that to all the girls?
Stay Sweet is out on Damaged Goods on May 21st.
