Good Song or Bad Song? Charlie Rich: Behind Closed Doors
This is Charlie Rich singing his hit Behind Closed Doors.
You tell me: is this a good song or a bad song?
On the one hand, the piano has a wonderful bluesy, honky-tonk quality, the melody is pleasant, and the singing is rich and smooth.
On the other hand, the lyrics bring disturbing images into the mind’s eye, do they not? In fact, everything about the lyric is positively creepy. Can it be a good song anyway?
