Like when Waylon sang in "Lukenbach, Texas" about gettin' back to the basics of love:
The only two things in life that make it worth livin'
Is guitars that tune good and firm feelin' women
Could there be anything more not-Texan than a 24 year-old British ponce prancing in a pompadour, eyeliner and lipgloss, singing "I know I'll dieeeeeee, bay-ay-beeeeeee??"
Sure enough, when it came time to leave, bright pop hits of the Eighties were still laying an absurd pall over the already spiritless, brown-carpet bleakness of the DFW airport.
