My best best friend, Lisa, is gorgeous… in every way. She’s also fabulous. Lives in Manhattan, doesn’t wear pants [only skirts or dresses], recommends the best books/music, etc., etc.
Anywho, a while back Lisa told me that if there was one band that would define her as a whole, it would be Belle & Sebastian. Which is perfect… beautiful… because she’s beautiful.
I thought of her this morning, whilst drinking coffee, writing, because this song came on…
Such a great song. “Don’t look back… Like Dylan in the movies.”
I love that it makes me think of her.
Then I was thinking… “What group defines me?” And I know what band I want to say…
The Arcade Fire.
I hope. I want. I want to be as energetic, as passionate, as crazy, as beautiful, as collaborative, as fun, as glorious as them. I think wanting is enough. They’re my defining band. The Arcade Fire.
Okay, I’ll stop.
[at least watch the first and last. LOVE.]
I remember asking this “What musical artist defines you?” question to a boy I was dating once. I don’t remember his answer, but I remember thinking, “Really?”
I think it’s a very telling question. Don’t you think you can tell a lot about a person by their answer to that?
Makes me so curious. Who would my parents say? Who would my friends say? Who would that cute bartender say?
Who would you say?
