I love intelligent girls, I mean, really intelligent girls. The presence of an enormous brain infatuates me at the moment of apprehension, I feel a real tightness in my chest, and my heart bursts. A brain is far more potent than any mere physical attribute.
When you meet anyone, it takes a while to figure out just how smart they are. Sometimes you never quite get it, because the occasion never arises; but usually there's a moment when you get that flash, thinking, oh my god, this girl is so freaking smart I'm struck dumb. Add youth and beauty and a fellow could pass out cold on the floor out of excitement.
So here is a song for all the really smart girls I've been so very lucky to love, only one of whom was smart enough to love me back.
If this sounds a little new wave, that's because I wrote this back when I was still in the Obvious, right before we broke up. Much of the melody is based on the brilliant lead solo Alex Mutrux was working out to it when we used to play it together. As you can tell, it needs either a lead guitar or sax solo and some kick ass rock and roll drums. If anyone wants to help me out with such things, please let me know!
