Gaslighting is term that means intentionally driving someone crazy by making them question their own sanity. The term comes from the 1944 movie Gaslight
, where Ingrid Bergman plays a woman whose husband manipulates her into going insane. One of his techniques is to tell her that a gaslight is not flickering like she thinks it is, trying to get her not to believe her own eyes. In 2020, The Chicks released an album called Gaslighter
with a title
track that deals with the technique. Trishes wrote this song three years earlier, but didn't release it until a few months after The Chicks put out their album.
