Everyone is familiar with Jack Skeleton’s drive to search for something better, new, and different from the mundane Halloween Town..
Adversely,Sally’s plight to Love such a person with these ambitions, and zealousness, that initially goes unnoticed, relates so heavily to Kelis’ “Get Along with you” video. Even in comparison to “Sally’s Song”; both full of un-recognition, lack of self-worth, the need to feel love from the one who sees you as invisible and the knowing that you can provide everything that’s missing… Not to mention the overall angst,that it all brings so much more light to Sally’s situation,and her initial place in Jack’s life that it calls us to reevaluate how we treat the one we love and are deserving of our time, and devotion..
Had Jack noticed sooner, there would have never been a need to Save Sally and he would have found all the joy, ambition, drive, difference, and properly placed zeal into building with Sally..
Needless to say I’m glad he saved her from an immortal death, and showed her how impactful and dynamic she was to his simple existence in the afterlife plain of Halloween town..
