yesterday evening as i rode the train home from work, i was wandering through shuffle mode on my ipod. after being mildly embarrassed at an immasculating smattering of miley cyrus, the glee cast and lady gaga i was relieved to hear deathcab for cutie’s cover of earth angel (the classic by frankie valli and the four seasons). it was perfect for unwinding after a hectic day at work. i immediately started to think of what the earth angel might look like today. sure, back in the day she probably looked something like barbara ann but now she’d be much different. i’d imagine earth angels would be those girls that just throw a bunch of crap on but somehow look so put together, but so unpretencious. then when you finally bump into them you’re like oh shit, earth angel. picture the setting-drinking a beer at a bar after work by yourself and then earth angel walks in probably waiting for others and just sort of walks on by, but you’re starstruck… awesome.
