It Ended When You Said Goodbye

My mom like all Asian moms loved "The End Of The World" by Skeeter Davis. Asians love sad, sad songs because it makes them feel the Hennessy XO even more.

I've made "The End Of The World" one of my karaoke staples but no one my age usually gets it. It's more impressive to use it on a room of sixty year olds.



A while ago I stumbled on information about Skeeter Davis' estate sale. She apparently had her own Infinite Garage.

Hey! Don't you go essentializing asian moms!

Melissa, the talking part in the song is the bestest. so so sad.

Erin, i'd never essentialize. Unless it were true.

I'm catching up on your archives and -- wow! -- this is one of my favorite songs, too. I'm not a mom yet, but I sure do feel extra Asian now!
