Harry and the Mannequin

Track Cover Art for Harry and the Mannequin

"Harry and the Mannequin" is inspired by the movie Lars and the Real Girl, but only partially. The story in this song has a different cast and completely different plot as Harry actually meets his object of affection at a department store (where she "works"). He asks he her out, they start "hooking up" and the town starts to talk. The horns on this track are intentionally quirky and eventually we come to learn that Harry really can't live without her - it's due to her "perfect body" and "bank account." But how the heck would a mannequin have a bank account? Hey, it's a song - anything's possible!
