Let’s try to figure out what exactly is happening in July Talk’s “Lola+Joseph”
An email from Brent popped into my inbox this week. He had some questions about the July Talk song “Lola+Joseph.”
I am wondering if you could provide an explanation of just what’s going on in Lola + Joseph. I read something from the female lead but that was just as cryptic and thoroughly confusing.
I was reading the Musixmatch lyrics and there definitely seems to be a third player (the second female) a stranger walking in the stockings that bought for me). I don’t think we get the name of the person (woman?) inside the liquor store “narrating”the song.
And this makes me think 3 distinct people She says Lola (1) He says Joseph (2) She buys the red wine (1) He buys the white wine (2) I offer a ride (3 unnamed)
Do you concur?
Anyone want to venture an opinion? Or is Brent overthinking things?
