As I was "listening" to Norm sing "Teen Angel," I realized the obit guy was right: there ARE questions. It's not just "what was the ring doing back in the car?" And it's not just "what are the odds of stalling on railroad tracks?" Why does he have to PULL
her out, if the car is just stalled? And if we start to see dream girl as a bit death, no pun intended, driven, the questions like the ring, and the running back, and who was driving/stalling, get even more questionable.
Please please please and pretty please sing ths

Subject: Teen Angel
"Teen Angel" is about a teenage boy's girlfriend (not the reverse) dying after being hit by a train. It's high camp and quite funny. As for unconscious meanings, I've always appreciated the necrophilia of the lines, "I'll never kiss your lips again/They
buried you today." If you pleaded with me, I could sing the entire song for you.
