All Time High’s Pollyannish Grunge

All Time High – “Pollyanna” mp3

Pollyanna is I believe one of the best words in the English language. It’s a relatively new term, whose origin is simple – Pollyanna was the name of a child heroine created by American writer Eleanor Porter, who was optimistic and sweet regardless of whatever dire circumstances did beset her. Often used disparagingly, I consider it a virtue. Seattle’s All Time High has a thing or two to sing about the matter, in classic Seattle grunge rock style, in this wonderful bit of rock and roll philosiphizin’. Everything is gr8! Really.
