GUEST,KT Help: Dirty Old Town? Meaning??? (324* d) RE: Help: Dirty Old Town? Meaning??? 01 Sep 06


I suppose the thing with Dirty O T is that the words conjure up such a vivid picture of a town in the era of steam and old industry, and although it's quite correct to say that this is peripheral to the core meaning of the song and could be applied to any industrial town, knowing that it's inspiration was somewhere real you can relate to even if you're miles away and can only see it on a map, somehow seems to matter. End of long sentence.
