Am I the only one who hears the screams and the strangled cries of lawyers in love?

Anyone considering a career in law should be forewarned that lawyer mating rituals may in fact involve dance-marching with your briefcase in front of the Kremlin in Red Square. Take if from Jackson Browne. He knows.

Unbelievably, “Lawyers in Love” was apparently a top-twenty hit when it was released. According to Wikipedia, “some analysts later saw “Lawyers in Love” as a evolving “bridge” between Browne’s personal works and his 1980′s political works. Others saw it as dry commentary on American social mores.” I find it to be yet another instance of solid proof that I just don’t ‘get’ the 80′s.

According to my favorite line, “the U.S.S.R. will be open soon as vacation land for lawyers in love.” I can hardly wait.

    Ok, now that is just disturbing and it makes no sense either. But then, that is true of a lot of songs if you really listen to the lyrics.
