This week’s song, Angelina, from Peter Link’s latest album Remnants, features a soft, soothing melody coupled with relevant and thought-provoking lyrics. Peter himself explains the inspiration for this song:
“Here is a song that evolved from a scrap, a fragment, a lyrical moment in a funny song written decades ago. Funny and clever then; not so funny today.
“In this age of the #MeToo scandals—a tragic but absolutely most necessary time of exposure, revelation and hopefully correction and healing—not all men are guilty. But where is the line of demarcation with guilt? Where is the line of demarcation in cheating, in flirting…in seduction?
“In this song, our main character is claiming innocence, but in the same moment apologizing for his guilt. Guilty of what? Guilty of his naivete in succumbing (almost) to seduction? Is he truly innocent? Or was he teased into a situation that got him, for a moment, in over his head? On the other hand, maybe he was simply being a good Samaritan. We’ll leave you to decide. We’ll leave you to ponder and hopefully debate the honesty of the moment. One thing for sure, however, he absolutely loves Angelina.”
