“Barracuda” by Heart-Raymans Song of the Day [VIDEO]
Did you ever listen to this song and wonder what the words meant, or what the song is all about? Here’s the meaning…the real deal.
The Wilson sisters have revealed in various interviews that the song was about their anger towards an ad Mushroom Records placed in trade publications implying that the Ann and Nancy were lesbians having an affair. The song focuses on Ann’s rage towards a promoter who came up to her after a concert and asked how her “lover” was. She initially thought he was talking about her then boyfriend and band member Michael Fisher. After he revealed he was talking about her sister Nancy Wilson, Ann became angry and went back to her hotel room to write the song. Nancy put suitably angry music to the words to complete the song comparing the sleazy side of music to a dangerous fish.
