Music makes me dopey. This is a point of fact, a very important thing to know about knowing me. I meet people and wham a song is usually attached to them immediately. Or several songs in some cases. I mean music is around me all of the time and I will be in the middle of a situation and hear some song and think to myself “This song belongs to you and I and this place and time.” You do do it too by the way, you probably just aren’t as hyper aware of it as I am.
There were a couple of songs that just killed me when I was living in SLO, especially during that last month or so while going through the interview process and the leaving process. I won’t say who or what they remind me of but when they come on, I can remember exactly what I was doing when I first heard them, who I was talking to, what was going on in my life, etc.
There was a lot going on back then. Behind the scenes I mean, stuff I’ll never blog about because it’s not just my story to tell, you know? And it wasn’t anything horrible or dangerous or bad really, just stuff I didn’t know how to process.
Anyway, there is this one Train song we used to play and pretty much every time I hear it I want to laugh. Or cry. Or track Train down and rip their faces off for ever writing it and putting it in my life, because it’s like they straight up sucked it out of my head and are making millions of dollars off of it in a way.
I heard it again this morning, doing the Music Choice thing on my cable, and man… I had to sit down for a second. I let myself forget sometimes how much I miss certain people. Because you have to, sometimes, you just have to. Today, I guess I was just reminded how much I miss some people. And honestly that’s all the detail you’re going to get from me on that.
PS Eff Train. Eff Music Choice and Eff my brain. KTHNXBYE
