Sunday Video: Operator

Now, I've never been a fan of sappy songs of adoration, nor the bitter breakup song where the singer/songwriter proceeds to rip their former partner a new one lyrically, but there is an interesting middle ground between those two extremes.

There is the breakup song where the person singing the song starts to get over the relationship/person in question while they are singing it.

Operator by Jim Croce is just such a song.

Not a complete breakthrough mind you, but it was a start of the narrator.

Here's Where the Story Ends by The Sundays also fits in the same motif as Operator.
