    A classic. A complete short story in 3 minutes and change.

    Always a challenging one to listen to, few are immune to the truths of the story



    Classic Cash story telling



    A story within a story, a strong double meaning



    Revenge, cold and planned. Same writer wrote her song Blown Away and one other I think. Talented story telling that might be for hire (if that's the purpose of the thread).



    So much anger in this one. Palatable anger and hate. Yoda would not approve.



    Of course .... a few lists have been compiled before.

    How could this classic have been left out for this long?

    I'm not sure, but this may not have been fictional. I've heard some say it was a real event, others say it was fictional.

    I was thinking of adding that one too but there's a lot of story and not a lot of song involved.

    I forced the kids to listen to the whole thing last year. I'll have to get'em all Big Orange Drinks and make 'em listen to it again.

    Pink Floyd The Wall might fall in this category too, but it's so depressing. I haven't watched nor listened to it in thirty years.

    The start of the song are some visions Pete had at one time.

    I think several of the early era songs have engaging story telling lyrics, mostly fiction.

    Bloodrock? Heck yes. The neighborhood rockers loved them in the 70s.
