This week’s song is about the pitfalls of stubbornness. This is something that I know a lot about because I’ve been stubborn my whole life. The problem with stubbornness is that it is an isolating stance. You’ve got to budge for somebody, or after a while nobody is likely to budge for you. Reliance on friends and family has been a running thread on this site for a while, and particularly lately. This song insists that if you take the isolating stance you are doomed, and at the last minute you’ll know you’re wrong, which for a stubborn person is the worst imaginable fate. It is better to soften you’re position along the way and be right about the big stuff.
