From a Fresh Air interview of musician John Doe (of John Doe and the Sadies) by Terry Gross. One of the many reasons I like Terry Gross is because she never fails to leave you with an interesting observation of her own no matter who she is interviewing. In this case it was her appreciation of paradoxical country music song lyrics such as "More and more I miss you less and less..."
Here is a favorite country song of hers, "There Stands The Glass" performed by Ted Hawkins about which John Doe observed that the title is almost (paradoxically) regal as in "Doth There Standeth Ye Glass".
Very neat song:
