Andrew Bird uses this word on his album "The Mysterious Production of Eggs." Bird explained that it was born during a time of writer's block. Thinking that his muse had left him, Bird cracked open a volume of old English/Irish songs and came across a Dorsetshire version of "The Female Highwayman" that used the name of a girl, 'Sovay.' For whatever reason, it seemed to flood him with inspiration, and he wrote his own song in response. It's an easy-going, lilting little pop song about fighting back against the forces that seek to contain and confine creativity. It's a song about something happening that's never happened before… "and a word washed ashore…"
