Classical Music, Pop Music and a Girlfriend

Camping, the radio set to the classical
station, he hears Borodin’s “Prince
Igor, Polovtsian Dances” and immediate-
ly thinks of “A Stranger in Paradise,”
because that was really big when his
dad bought the stereo and Reader’s Digest
classical albums and he listened every
day after school not having a clue what
Borodin had in mind but having a really
great idea of what he had in mind as he
thought of his new junior in high school
girlfriend.
