Song of the Day – “Girl at the End of the Pier” – Graham Parker

Kind of mid-period Parker, 20 years after he started and nearly twenty years ago. It’s from 1996’s Acid Bubblegum.

It’s kind of a throwback song, an end-of-summer elegy to a girl from the boardwalk. Gotta love it.

As the twilight was returning
And the sun began to fall
I walked down to the beachfront
And watched the whitecaps roll
A flare exploded over the ocean an orange tear
Then I saw at the corner of my eye
The girl at the end of the pier
