what’s in a name?

I got the name “theuntouchableone” from a song written by Barbie Almalbis entitled “Untouchable Ones”.  Gusto ko kasi yung melody and the lyrics of that song which was included in the debut album — the only best album — of Barbie’s Cradle.  What I did not know is that there is another song of almost the same title by Tom Cochrane, “The Untouchable One”,  in 1980s.  The lyrics is also nice for it pays tribute to a girl.  I’m a girl so I can’t help but feel that this song was written for me. So that’s the history of the name and I decided to stick with it.

The Untouchable One

See her by the corner
Then she walks on by
Heads turn to meet her
Steely eyed
She`s her own girl
Her own design
She holds her head high
Hides her scars just fine

She makes it work out
Makes me feel
Makes me see
The untouchable one
Look and see
She`s one the outside
She`s with me

She`s been through a lot
You can tell
As hard as it gets baby
She holds it well
Don`t try to change her
No, she will not bend
But if you get close to her
She`ll be your special friend

She walks on by
You know she`s walking with me
The untouchable one
Look and see
She`s on the outside
She`s with me
Make me feel
Make me see

The untouchable one
The untouchable one
She hides her scars real fine
She`s her own design
The untouchable one
The untouchable one
