    I like it. I don't know the back story. Is this a singer who is known for this type of music or what?

    you can see interviews, it appears he's just cool (and straight) and felt that the song needed to be written. He thought homophobic straights might like and hum the tune then eventually get the message.

    I get it. It's a catchy and fun little tune. However, actually listening to the lyrics, and hearing about bashing and forced drowning, because of loving someone of the same sex, was overwhelmingly more disturbing and tragic to me. The poignant and touching line, "...and I hope they didn't tie up, your hands as tight as mine...", shows this most clearly. I actually like it, but it twists my head a bit, and not always in a good way. You know... "that cheery little dreadful tragedy," is a strange contradiction to reconcile. Overall, it's very sweet, and, if you're paying attention, very moving.

    Glad you got it and yes, it's meant to make you think of the ridiculous incongruity of their gang raping him nightly but condemning any emotional attachment, because that's homosexual behaviour !

    I'd like to know more about Cosmo himself. Is he gay/bi/st8? One this is for sure - he's hot as hell! A very sexy man.
