A theory
When Bryan Adams, in Run to You sings, "She says her love for me will never die, but that'd change if she ever found out 'bout you and I," maybe he means that his wife would be okay with his cheating, but cares about grammar.

(Also, that song is thirty years old.)

And speaking of thirty-year-old Bryan Adams songs, looking at the video for Summer of '69 (still the greatest song of all time that combines nostalgia and references to sexual positions), no one working at the drive-in noticed the scaffolding still up when the movie started? I'm starting to suspect that the entire thing was a set-up by the dozens of townspeople and employees to get Lysette Anthony and Adams to Meet Cute.

I started listening to a 70s/80s station in the car because it was about the only thing that I could tolerate for a while, and it also tends to give Wil and me some inspiration for karaoke when we're driving around. That song is in heavy rotation on there, and that particular line has been grating on me for a while. I've actually switched over to the "today's hits" station for a change of pace, because it's kind of a pain in the butt to get Spotify up and running on my phone and plugged into the USB port on the stereo when I am just going to be in the car for a few minutes. I should probably just burn a CD and call it something like "songs that won't drive me nuts (like that's that far of a drive)."

We lost our last good non-NPR station in Boston last year, so I literally only listen to talk in the car now, alas.

I'm sure it's the grammar. Puts me over the edge.

He's saying he married an editor.

Maybe, but "8675309 (Jenny)" is notable for containing the highest prime number ever referenced in a pop song.

True. Squeeze failed at both topping it and at primeness with "8535937."
