Something was catchy about it for me--
the melody, the tempo...
Here it is for you:
Now for some reason, there was a moment when I let an off-hand comment by a friend diminish my love for this song, but after hearing a live jam version this morning, something has been rekindled and reaffirmed for me.
(And wow, the seamless quotes of other songs!)
Here's that version:
"hey-- that song sounds like the music
you hear in the background
on the weather channel!"
and for some reason, that felt like a diss and I thought to myself, oh.. the weather channel? How lame...
The lesson here? On the surface it may be something like:
"music labeled as 'background music'
is actually really important for
creating a vibe or environment
that someone actually wants
to stay in for a while."
On the deeper level, perhaps something more like,
"Don't be afraid to love what you love,
even if it doesn't make sense.
Do use discernment, AND
your body knows what it loves."
"Don't let your own likes and tastes
be negated by the opinions of others."
