it's deceptive ...

does "deceptively comfortable" mean
it is comfortable, even though one would not normally think so?
it is not comfortable, even though it appears to be?

'need you now,' Lady Antebellum

this is a good song - when I first heard the lyrics, it sounded inane and without substance.  However, while burning the midnight oil, preparing for lectures beyond midnight, it's a good song to have playing in the background.  Because the lyrics fade to the strength of the tune.

p.s. ante bellum translates to "before the war" ... was there ever such a time? only nella fantasia

toodle-oo Lou, you 'tough guy' you

so long, adieu
bid you farewell Lou
you made my blood boil
our opinions like water and oil
but that's just middle class smack for you
