At my Sonorexia reunion performance last night I performed my "deconstructed" version of "Cherish," by the Association. I always hated that whiny, cloying song until I finally understood the subtext which, I now realize, was not very subliminal after all.

"Cherish" is not included on my Soundclick page because that site is limited to original material. I am now making a download of the track available here, with plenty of time to spare for Valentine's Day.


Peter Cherches - Vocal
Elliott Sharp - Guitar, Bass
Lee Feldman - Keyboard
Kate O'Looney - Drums

OK - I give up. What's the subtext to "Cherish"? I just read the lyrics and any subtext that might be there eludes me. Even I, with my very pedestrian tastes, despise the Association's work.

Maybe it never was a subtext after all--just a schmaltzy tune fighting the pathological lyrics.

Maybe you got Cherish mixed with the infamous Along Came Mary, their oh so cool song which is not about marijuana according to, but is about "The Warning." The what??
