Trick or Treat: Rebellious

Kacy Crowley: Rebellious


This was the first song that came to mind when I heard the theme for the week. That's mostly because the song actually mentions children misbehaving on Halloween, so it felt appropriate. Overall, though, the song is an autobiography of the singer-songwriter and how she went from a normal little girl with loving parents to a rebellious adolescent, a drug-addled young adult and finally a professional musician finally finding her voice. It tells the tale in such a way as to make it sound both extraordinary as well as make it feel like it could be anyone you know.

I turned thirteen and I tried smoking pot
It was Halloween, so we didn't get caught.
Dressed up like hobos and hookers
Eating candy like crooks in the bushes.
