“Fistful of Love” by Antony and The Johnsons

I am easily moved by music, but I do not think I have been moved by a song in this way in some time:

Most individuals interpret this song as a song about abuse (specifically domestic abuse), but I saw one theory saying it might be about BDSM and relationships, which seems less likely but is also less sad. The BDSM theory spin reminds me of one of my favorite movies, The Secretary.

I saw The Secretary when I was in high school, and I did not really understand BDSM and thought it was pretty fucked up. How times change.

Another great song by Antony and the Johnsons that might make you misty is this one (“Hope There’s Someone”):

The isolation continues!
