“Someone’s Looking At You,” The Boomtown Rats
With less than 2 hours to fulfill my New Year’s promise to write 2 of these entries a month, I’m down to the wire… Luckily, this isn’t the only time Jayne Mansfield makes an appearance on ssspunerisms!
No one stares like New Yorkers riding the subway do! From that flabby man who leered directly at the bosom of a young woman whose shirt was missing a button in an unfortunate location to the bitchy ladies who size each other up, lingering on each other’s weak points (smug smiles should they spot a doughy lump, a cankle, thighs with no space in between)…this one’s for you--thanks for making the rest of us feel rotten. May your cup never be empty.
(And we still didn’t get to talk about how underrated Bob Geldof’s lyrics are.)
