We were stopping at her house after school one afternoon and we flipped on the television -- I think to watch a tape of Mission Impossible or Saturday Night Live, since those were two of our favorites -- and
The story behind this song is actually pretty interesting (and a bit murky, it seems). It's about a Mardi Gras parade collision, where one tribe's "flag boy" threatens to set fire to the flag of the other tribe. It's been covered by a whole mess of artists (including some I didn't know about, like the Neville Brothers & Cyndi Lauper).
Anyway, it's a super catchy little song. Have a happy Monday!
