PostSubject: "The Backseat" vs. "Backseats"   Tue Mar 01, 2011 2:51 pm

I've been on here for a decent amount of time, whether lurking or posting. I hopped on the Gaslight train right when The '59 Sound came out. And still, after all this time, I don't understand why some fans consistently call The Backseat "Backseats". I'm guessing maybe it was a working title or something, but it's very strange to me.

Anyone know for sure what the reason is?

To my knowledge, it all started with a radio show, might have been KEXP from NY/Seattle. It was before the 59 Sound came out and he called it Backseats and quickly corrected himself. It's been Backseats since

Notwithstanding the official title of the song, the plural of the word is used in the very first line of the song: "In the backseats of burned out cars . . . "

Well, yeah, obviously. Vibes, thanks for the explanation, though. I figured it was something like that.

Huh? Yeah, I know. Also in the lyrics (and more prominently) is "And in the backseat we're just trying to find..."

Whatever, I don't understand your post so much. I had the question answered. I wasn't trying to be a dick, I just thought it was obvious that anybody posting here would know the lyrics of the songs very well.
