I Put It Back In Place

Hey Everybody,

I recentely alluded to something in a comment that I wanted to flesh out.

I was just thinking about this little thing... something in a Modern Lovers song that never ceases to make me smile.

I really love this line from "I'm Straight," that happens as almost an aside. He sings about calling the object of his desire and then haning up the phone... "I put it... back in place."

Then the aside. It's like he turns his head to one side and softly explains, "I put my phone back in place." LOVE that.

I always find myself rehearsing these two lines.

Anyway, that's all i got.
