Song of the Day – “Nurds” – The Roches

When I was a young girl
I went to Catholic school
Hung around all the nuns
That was so uncool

All the other girls were wearing
Makeup in fourth grade
But I was not allowed
I wore anklets and prayed

Being a nerd carries its own cachet these days, but back in the sixties – not so much. Even when this song was released in 1980, it was a sure route to a beatdown.

The title song to the Roche sisters sophomore album.
