    Sad...
    “My Little Town” will make me cry faster than I can say “Kodachrome”

    The child is the subject, and he feels oppressed and conflicted about his small town.
    He loved riding his bike without fear of getting run over by cars, yet feels oppressed in a Jesuit school setting.
    Poor guy..everything seems black, cheerless and unimaginative.

    There are many nostalgic songs in which singers reflect on their happy childhoods in small towns.

    "My Little Town" is the opposite of nostalgic. Much like the Animals' "We Gotta Get Out of This Place," it's about growing up in a dirty, polluted small town filled with narrow-minded people who have little imagination and no ambition.

    The singer reflects back on his childhood, and remembers how he dreamed of growing up and moving far, far away.
