Last week, a #SongLyricSunday participant posted an Amanda Marshall song, reminding me of how much I loved her music back in the day. Her music was perfect for “cruising down the highway” on long road trips.

Of course, this made me pull out my old cassette. Where did this great Canadian voice disappear to?

Sunday Morning After“, “Birmingham” and “Colleen (I Saw Him First)” were my favorites but I’ve always loved the lyrics of the song below, “Double Agent”.

This song is about the insensitive things people say about certain ethnic groups when they don’t realize that YOU are part and parcel of that group – you just don’t look like it.

You can’t always judge a book by its cover, can you?

  1. Had never heard this great voice until I saw a video posted by herheadache a couple of weeks ago. I thought she was a kid! LOLOL!

    Great song and something I know my biracial nieces and nephews can relate to all too well….especially my thirty-year-old-nephew whose been known to insert, “People, please! I’m a black man!” into more than a few conversations! 😂😂😂

  2. Soooo Good Marquessa! I wasn’t familiar with the artist or the song so I googled the lyrics to better follow along! Favorite lyrics: “My angels and my demons at war
    Which one will lose – depends on what I choose
    Or maybe which voice I ignore”
