I still remember bits and pieces of a childhood tap dance to Trisha Yearwood’s “XXX’s and OOO’s (An American Girl).” At the time, I loved it because I was very much into American Girl dolls (which, truthfully, I never really outgrew). Looking at the lyrics as an adult, I see that it’s about a woman trying to find balance—a timeless theme.
