Hyperbole sometimes tells the story better than Biography.
"What if the Prodigal Son story was a song by Joy Division & in the end the only 'New Order' was that love didn't tear them apart?"
"What would've happened if Sade had been a white-suburban-only-child who grew up loving Jesus, Yo MTV Raps & INXS?"
"What if Johnny Cash grew up in the 80's, had a thing for synths and wrote songs only to be released on the internet?"
