I'm going to attempt to do this memey thing called 30 Days of Song. I will not post this every day, because oh-my-pants-I'm-bored-already. Instead I'll post once or twice a week, as I feel like. So there. I am unrepentantly stealing this from Jen O. at My Tornado Alley. She rocks. I'm not sure if she stole it from somewhere, but here we go.
A Song from Last Year
And, so, at the very end, it all falls apart. Today is supposed to be my favorite song from this time last year. But since I've been working on this massive, stupid project for a year, you know what I liked last year. It's right down there at the bottom.
So, instead, I googled what was on the Top 40 this day last year and picked my favorite song from the list.
So... Train. A few years back (like a decade plus) a good friend of mine was mocking me for loving Train. Because they don't make any sense. None of it. Their lyrics are ridiculous. I spent probably an hour trying to justify how they totally made sense to me. Because I was stupid. The thing is, "a two-ply, Hefty bag to hold my love," does not make sense. (Also, is not very complimentary, I think.) I don't love them because they make sense to me. I love them because they make no sense at all. And they are rocking that.
Okay, so a year later and you know more about me and my musical tastes than completely necessary. Thanks for reading along. I am closing in on the end of my 34th year and I think this makes a pretty decent attempt at listen to music. Is there anything you think I should be listening to that I am ignoring for the sweet nonsense of Train?
