Notes from the Songwriter
Keith Alan Mitchell San Francisco Bay Area

I have friends and family who are involved with the apparel industry and some who are in Los Angeles, so this story really resonated with me. It tells about a fashion designer racing around to finish making the clothes for her big runway show, and she's running so late that she runs 15 red lights trying to get there on time! The idea of running 15 red lights is a great phrase for a song. It's very simple and brief, but it's also a super creative and descriptive way to illustrate extreme urgency and drive (literally). Great stuff! Here are the lyrics: You ran 15 red lights?! The name of the game is style and what's in season. But the powers that be don't care if you've got what it takes. You gotta be safe out there on the road – use your reason. Running one light's bad, but 15!? for goodness sake! You got lucky with the first 14 red lights, OK. But when you ran number 15, the cops said "no way." You're in too much hurry trying to make it through your day. You ran 15 red lights tearing through the streets of LA. You've got style, determination, and you've got passion. You create beautiful things, and you look good too. But you're gonna be late – and being late ain't in fashion. You work so hard at everything you do. You got lucky with the first 14 red lights, OK. But when you ran number 15, the cops said "no way." (pull over ma'am. pull over) You're in too much hurry trying to make it through your day. You ran 15 red lights tearing through the streets of LA. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Put on your brakes, you're gonna have to be late. 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 Don't you know what red lights mean? You got lucky with the first 14 red lights, OK. But when you ran number 15, the cops said "no way." (I need to see your license and your registration.) You're in too much hurry trying to make it through your day. You ran 15 red lights tearing through the streets of LA. You ran 15 red lights speeding through the streets of LA.
