oh, well damn. go watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kaYsczkWti0
Let me elaborate.
This song. Wow. This song.
First of all, I love it… lots. I love the music, the vocals, the lyrics, it all.
Secondly, the moment I hear it, I am taken back to a certain moment in time. And it’s silly, you’re going to roll your eyes at me, but I’m taken back to a bar… a bar in Jackson… 43 North. One of the sketchiest bars in Jackson that always seems to have a cover. [I pride myself on never paying a cover at 43… but that’s a whole nother story.]
When I hear this song, it brings me back to dacing and smiling so big in 43 North with a bearded boy who I thought was just about the hottest thing in the whole world [for a whole 15 minutes] and thinking to myself, “How nice… a guy who is a really good dancer! My parents would be so proud. And this is SUCH a good song! And I LOVE dancing!”
It was so simple, but it was so joyous. And this song [this sad song] makes me think of that night… those three minutes… dancing… smiling… good times.
