She's Still Got It

She's Still Got It was inspired by the sight of an elderly woman crossing the road in Truro, Nova Scotia.  All the traffic in the street stopped.  I thought to myself, "she's still got it!"  As I worked on the lyric, I realized that the sentiment really applies to anyone: beauty is beautiful at any age.

I often marvel at the pressures women face, particularly in the arts & entertainment industry, to "look young."  It's such a ridiculous but popular notion that men get better with age (Sean Connery, Richard Gere) but that women need plastic surgery (Meg Ryan, Melanie Griffith) to stay relevant and beautiful.  Come on... seriously?!
