Last week, Kathleen Edwards released her third album, Asking for Flowers. I’ve listened to it twice so far and indications are very good. It took me some time to warm up to her second album, and I never got into her first. I sense a trend.

A review on CBC Radio last week mentioned the song, “I make the dough but you get the glory.” The reviewer explained that the sing is a playful jab at her manager (or was it producer?). I was driving at the time so I can’t claim perfect recall about this.

One part of the chorus really amuses me:

I’m a Ford Tempo you’re a Maserati
You’re the Great One, I’m Marty McSorley
You’re the Concorde, I’m economy
I make the dough but you get the glory

Not only is mention of Marty McSorley in a song unexpected, but she even managed a rhyme! Colour me impressed.
