“I Loved You When I Thought your Name was Ken” – Five Course Love

Music and Lyrics: Gregg Coffin

News of dolls Barbie and Ken breaking up after more than four decades together was revealed on this day in 2004.  Whether simply a cheap publicity stunt or a legitimate attempt to modernize the icon of perfectionism, it was a sad occasion for some fans, yet laughable for almost everyone else.  This country-tinged number from the ridiculous comedy Five Course Love is for the latter bunch.  When a cowgirl/Barbie fanatic discovers the man she is pursuing has a name that falls short of her expectations, she angrily rebukes him.
