Musical Musings… Am I The One That’s Corrupted? (All Signs Point To Yuck)

At one point in my life, I had an untainted mind (I could barely write that without evoking mental images).

Nowadays, it doesn’t take much for my bowling ball brain to land in the gutter.  The latest occurrence involved a song with this title:

SEED TOSS by SUPERCHUNK

I didn’t even listen to the song.  My reaction was, “ewww,” and I touched that dial.  Here’s the song if you’re interested:

But was my repulsed gut instinct on the mark?  Are my sensibilities that warped that I took the gross song title and coincidentally horrible band name to an extreme context of double entendre?

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, I envy you.  But to confirm or deny my impulse judgment, let’s look at the lyrics (I still refuse to listen to the tune):

‘Cause (and) here you come on your broom
Your mood ring’s turning brown
You will begin to feel it soon
You’re tossing your seeds around

Okay… so it’s about a girl who’s a witch or a bitch or Joanna Appleseed?  The rest of the lyrics add little insight.

Could I be completely off base?  Is it just about a girl gardener?

Heaven help my soul.

Heaven help my soul.
