It might just be me, but I always read “Broken Wings” as more alarming and sinister than romantic. Maybe it’s the flesh and blood references or all the Jesus-y overtones (the book of love?). Or maybe it’s the name Mister Mister, which calls to mind Humbert Humbert. Regardless, the overall effect makes me feel like walking into an American Apparel store does — there’s something bizarre and possibly illegal going on that I can’t quite put my finger on.

Also, dude in a convertible wearing aviators who later repents at church in the presence of weird birds — that’s precisely who I envisioned at the helm of this classic one-hit wonder. Ew.

All of that said, I unabashedly enjoy singing this song as loud as possible.
