Flashback Friday #72 asks listeners to take on an analogy, and I was reminded of this recent song by Ed Sheeran, “The Joker & The Queen,” which attempts to explain love using a card game analogy. Can the Joker marry the Queen? Sheeran’s shuffled in lots of card references to create a song that makes us question what makes a good pair? I’m curious, what are your thoughts?
Oh, and if you can think of another analogy in a song, please share it below.
Be sure to tune in to Songshine Sounds tomorrow for a new flashback track and prompt. Cheers!
