Crazy Cat Lady’s Christmas Calendar – Day 10
Our 10th cat-themed tune comes from the quirky electropop group Hot Chip. With this tender synth jam, “Alley Cats” (2010), the guys show their sensitive side.
“Alley Cats” is a metaphor for a relationship, one that requires maintenance and attention (isn’t that every relationship..?). In the course of the 5-minute track, the metaphor shifts to houseplants. And we all know what happens to those when not cared for properly. Cruel stuff.
LESSON: Remember to water your cats, scratch your houseplants, and neuter your loved ones so that they don’t die a horrible and painful death!
