I had a nice little lunch and catch-up time with my 'southern parents' today, and on the walk home, this came on. It's not just one meant for them, but for my general Southern family of friends. I was just reminded of the hope that I have to get back there, and the happy fact that I'll be there in a few short weeks!
I feel like I need to admit that I almost used Rebecca Black's "Friday" as today's pick, since everyone's all a-flutter that today's essentially Friday. I only refrained out of total respect for myself and you guys and music in general.
Anywhos, today's song came from me just perusing my "Stuff I Wouldn't Mind Hearing Again" list (click there to go ahead and follow/listen!) and seeing just the title. Call it a personal necessity I suppose, but I need to get the hell out of the position I'm in. I need a change. I need music.
So yeah, totally selfish choice here, but, as I've said more than a few times - my blog, damnit.
Something is incredibly beautiful in this song. I've had Spotify radio going here at work, and they have been pulling some real gems out over the past few days. This was the first one I found myself really smiling out loud for. David's got an incredible voice to begin with, and something about the way the lines in this chorus fall just gets me in the heart.
I saw a really fun production of this back home, which is largely where this is coming from. But seriously, my kindreds who know that there really is nothing else like this insane entertainment industry could sing right along with this.
Because songs define our moments.
