"Slushy" as written by Frances Mckee and Eugene Kelly....
Long brown hair, eyes were green.
Prettiest girl I've ever seen,
And you'll never miss what you never had.
Oh, you'll never miss what you never had.

Long brown hair, eyes were gray.
Tried and tried to stay away,
And you'll never miss what you never had.
Oh, you'll never miss what you never had.

I do, I do,
I really miss you,
And if I'd only ask your name again.

    General CommentThis to me is a direct, simple, and stunningly multi-leveled work of art. This song emphasizes the fleeting nature of human connection and the true cost of failing to pursue and value others.

    We can all remember a time we didn't take a chance to make a brief encounter in the street (or the sack) something more. Many of us have lost someone we knew deeply for years, and still wished we'd 'asked someone's name again.'

    Yet the humor shown in the 'wish I'd asked your name' line (i.e., the least amount of effort possible in any social interaction) brings a joyous self-deprecation to the singer, and shows how EASY it can be to get it right.

    Beautiful piece of work, pure genius.

    My InterpretationI don't think it's about a one night stand, just a chance encounter with someone that never went anywhere at all.
