Flaming Red ??

Hi everyone,
 
Have I missed a Flaming Red interp thread, or is there really not one?  I'm wondering if there is a story behind this song...has anyone heard?  I apologize if there is a thread about it...I've looked but haven't found one.
 
Thanks!!

There is a story I think by Hans Christian Andersen (or however you spell his name) that the story is based on.  I've never read it because I am a bad Patty fan, but I've heard her say that's what it's based on.  It seems to me that it's about a woman who's been raped and killed and people blame her for it.  "Stupid girl/she was dressed like/she deserved everything that she got."  I can't tell what role Patty assumes in the song.  But maybe if I read the story, I could tell you.  You can probably look it up online though.  It's called "The Red Shoes."

Thank you Matt.  The song has such a clear 'story', which doesn't always seem to be the case for Miss Patty, that I just wondered where it came from.
 
Thank you again!!

I always thought it was about a prostitute...but I've never read the book.

Also try the "religious rebellion" songs thread. Lots of really good stuff in there. Smiley

Thank you for the thread, and the welcome, Elise.  Smiley  And thank you all for your thoughts and input.
 
That thread was an interesting little read.  I have assumed that "holy as Jesus", referred to the narrator's view of self.  "I am just as holy as Jesus, and have the right to judge this girl as having deserved what she got..."   I have not drawn the conculusion that the "worn out" referred to anything further than the narrator, although I'll give that some thought.
 
Thanks.
