World's Worst iPod: Brand New Key by Melanie
by World's Worst iPod,posted Jul 25 2013 11:01AM
The song Brand New Key made it to number 1 late in 1972 for Melanie. This moring a lot of listeners were discussing what the song is really about. Melanie has been asked the question many times.
Here's what she said, "I wrote it in about fifteen minutes one night. I thought it was cute; a kind of old thirties' tune. I guess a key and a lock have always been Freudian symbols, and pretty obvious ones at that. There was no deep serious expression behind the song, but people read things into it. They made up incredible stories as to what the lyrics said and what the song meant. In some places, it was even banned from the radio.
My idea about songs is that once you write them, you have very little say in their life afterward. It's a lot like having a baby. You conceive a song, deliver it, and then give it as good a start as you can. After that, it's on its own. People will take it any way they want to take it."
Sergio Mendes was a Brazilian bandleader who had some hits in the 1960's, and came back with a vengeance in 1983. "Never Gonna Let You Go" made it to number 4 on the pop chart and was #1 for three weeks on the adult contemporary chart.
