Conversation, earlier this evening

We had the TV on in the background and there’s an old pop music programme playing Don MacLean, American Pie.

V: ‘I always preferred Vincent.’

Me: ‘I never liked that one, I thought it was a dirge.’

V: ‘How can you say that? It was a sensitive song about a great artist!’

Me: ‘It was a sensitive song about a great artist but it was also a morbid dirge.’

V: ‘But think about the goth music you listen to, that’s morbid and dirgelike!’

Me: ‘Yes, but I only like morbid dirges when they’re ironic and postmodern.’

[Both collapse laughing.]
