blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: John Mayer

John Mayer

One of my favorite songs of all time is John Mayer's "Comfortable." Part of the lyrics: I sleep with this new girl I’m still getting used to my friends all approve, say “she’s gonna be good for you” they throw me high fives she says the Bible is all that she reads and prefers that I not use profanity [but] your mouth was so dirty - life of the party and she swears that she’s artsy but you could distinguish Miles from Coltrane Being the country bumkin that I am, it took a while before I figured out the last line referred to jazz musicians Miles Davis and John Coltrane. So why do I bring this up? A liberal news blog for some reason just posted a video clip of both Davis and Coltrane performing together. At least it means something to me.
